Ive read a lot of the post on the forum and made a long list of mods from reading through all of you guys post. I really appreciate having this website as a guide for a lot of the mods I would like to do. I have a question about the 08 Escalade and installing the factory Nav head unit. I would like to upgrade to the newer year unit with CF card is this possible? Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the forums, take a side pic of ur esky so we can see the rims. About the nav unit I also have an 08 and wanted to upgrade but I've read that the supernav is only compatible on 07,09 and up not 08. I really hope it's not true but that's what I've read.

I am not sure why that has been said, but a member here "toygar" claims he has a 2012 nav in his 2008. You might want to try PMing him. OEMAutoPartsCo is so far the only people I actually see claiming that it was tested and does not work. I have not seen a member here say that they tried it and it failed.


I say you should find a 2012 with CF from a seller that accepts returns. If it works, that would be great and you should let us know, and if not you just return it, confirm it here and order a different unit. :)

Congrats on your new ride! You will love the room and the power and the smooth ride of the Escalade..... can't be matched!

Another options is looking at some double DINS in placement of the old system... you have lots of options out there, or even seen some people with ipad minis in their dash. JUST throwing it out there.
