    Oh, Really, nobody can help in this situation. I want to replace my radio(Which also is used in opel) on Navigation System. In Russia,Moscow dealers know nothing about it.Because it is not delivered on the Russian market. And ONLY YOU Americans can help me!!! Friends! For whom it is not difficult please Whether learn from the dealers if it possible to change on NAV if YES then that for this purpose is necessary? Thank You ,Stanislav from Moscow,Russia!!!

    I don't understand you question. Are you trying to upgrade you stock radio for one with navigation unit or a afermarket one you used in a previous car? Or are you tring to use an aftermarket navigation/radio in your SRX?

    Yes you should be able to swap them out. The only issue is the front plate that is designed different. You may have to order one that is for the SRX with a navigation system. If you are planning to get this from the US then of course the navigation maps will be useless but it shold hook up the same. Are SRX's offered with navigation in your country? If so it would be best to go to the parts department of the dealer and get what you need. If that is even the set up at you dealer showrooms where you live.

    I have already spoke, that I live in Russia, Moscow and on our market nav is not delivered also dealers do not own any information on it. The problem is Whether it`ll work with my Russian version of the automobile?

    Well the only way to be totally sure is to get a diagram of the wiring to the radio in your car from the dealer. You then have to get one of the US system. If you can get one from your dealer(wiring harnest pic) I will try to help you by getting on of the US system when I go in for servicing.

    Quick question. Are Cadillac's common where you are in Moscow? I am just curious about their image where you live. Anyway good luck. Oh and excuse my typing.

    I did not know Cadillac even sold car in Russia. Tell us a little about how you all view Cadillac in Moscow. Also do you see very many Cadillac owners besides yourself?

    Just so you know, the COST of this unit is outrageous, JUST to have DVD playback, which by the way "works" but it doesn't work so well that I'd invest the money. We are talking over $3000 for a reman unit. That money would be better spent relocating the factory unit to the truck and installing an aftermarket nav that would work in your area and have total DVD playback.

    Also remember that DVDs are zone protected. A DVD that is purchased in Europe or Asia won't play on an American DVD player and vice versa...

    Do they offer Navigation units in Russia? If not, then you will need to buy our DVD player and discs from region 1 (US) for it to work... assuming that your wiring harness even uses the same connections as ours, of course.

    Re: Americans,Friends,Comrades I need in assistance!!!

    About Cadillacs in Russia. I drive Caddy STS1995, STS2001, SRX (russian version).Dealer price on SRX in Moscow area is about 58000$-72500$. You may to compare my VIN 1GYDE63A740177557 and RPO codes in it with Yours. But if I would like to buy US SRX in Moscow I had to pay a lot about 80000$-98000$.

    This car for US and Canada market area. We have a very expensive custom. AND if prefer to pay less i go to dealer and buy but to me don`t give such functions as: NAV SYS,TPM,MIRROR WITH COMPASS(It`s good that appeared at me my Chevy TrailBlazer and I have rearranged from him mirror wit compass and it works. About local dealer only 3 in Moscow:On our market they can deliver on these models: Chevy Tahoe and TrailBlazer, Cadillac CTC,SRX and in 2000 was the last delivery of STS(all vehicle are certificated under our market).But for me better US cars. In September I`ll go to America in Nevada and possibly buy New STS.
    And about service:service is So-so.Have got used to repair old vehicles(blazer,tahoe,old sts...).For new model there is no preparation and practice.Even I know more than they.
    And about NAV: On some cars like BMW,AuDI,MERS, nav works. Also it is more convenient for me touch screen.Also looks not bad.
    And I simply do not understand our representation GM.Why do not want to expand a modelling number .Shortly here so.
