Question About Replacing The Sat Nav

7 posts in this topic

hi all just looking for a bit of advice as i dont seam to be able to find the answers anywhere else

so im in the process of buy a mk3 focus i have looked at a few but am angling towards a white auto etc or titanium

i wanted the sony stereo as my Gf has it in her new fiesta zetec and it does the job well

BUT

i also wanted a sat nav and the only focus i can find for sale with the sony sat nav are pushing £18k for a zetec?

:D :D :D :D :D

soooo i was thinking if i bought the sat nav seperate will it just plug and play

is it a simple click in and out job?

has anyone done this so far

because if it need wiring, or the fitting needs to be modded in anyway?

will the sync still work like blue tooth etc?

and the unit i was gonna get is from the US if that makes any difference?

thanx in advance guys :D

Sadly you cant have both parts. You either have to have the satnav unit or a seperate unit like a tom tom. I do not believe there is anyway you could do it otherwise.

swapping a headunit isnt too bad, but I dont think there is one with all you want in it.

You would likely need additional wiring for the GPS I suspect, and you may also need a stalk adapter to get the controls, but otherwise it should be a swap?
