    Can someone help me?

    I have an 08 Cts 4 with non nav and i want to replace it with a 2011 cts V navigation system faceplate and center console and all. Is this possible? I contact the dealership and they said that it's not possible to swap the nav system because of the wiring. Obviously the don't know so i turn to my fellow cadillac users in this form for correct answer or advice. Can anyone tell that this is possible? Greatly appreciate it.

    GM does not have an upgrade path for this so any dealer is going to tell you 'no'

    as 1Bad said, there is a thread on this ... it can be done with enough time, money, and skill

    i don't recommend it though ... you'd be better off trading up for a 2011 w/ nav in the long run

    i just purchased a 2005 STS non nab with bose. I want to add Nav and Iphone/Ipod connectivity. I spoke with an experienced installer and her mentioned that I would mainly need this harness : http://www.installer.com/cars/by_car.php?carid=6883 which
    "Allows installation of an aftermarket radio using the existing factory wiring and connectors
    The GMOS-13 is designed to be used on 06-09 Cadillac STS equipped with OnStar and amplified system. It will retain the warning chimes that are lost when the factory radio is removed. The GMOS-13 also provides a 12-volt switched parking accessory output along with mute, parking brake, speed sense (VSS), and reverse outputs for the installation of an aftermarket navigation radio

    Has anyone had any luck with this harness. Also do you think it will retain the personalized settings of the original radio? What are your thoughts?

    DBB - I recommend you start a new thread. This one is about adding an OEM Nav to a non-nav STS. I think members have done things like you want but they may not notice this.

    Can you elaborate on hooking up the VSS wire (2006 Cadillac STS)? You mentioned wiring to the wrong side of the relay??? I just received my factory navigation and antenna. Getting ready to order a Lockpick if it will help with the VSS wire connection. I've seen the photos on this thread of the connection point behind the glovebox and it lookls fairly easy. How do you know which side of the connector brown wire to spice into?!

    Thanks a bunch!

    In any case to get a full working navigation unit you still have your work cut out for you. I can attach the wiring diagrams to show all the wires you are missing and they are mostly for voice commands, center channel, subwoofer outputs etc. I am assuming since you are missing the additional connectors you dont have the 15 speaker bose option?
    Hello Can you help me with the wiring diagram please. Thanks
