Hi all. I've got an arena red 1997 Boxster 2.5, 5-speed with slate grey interior, which came with the original Becker tuner/CD player. I know that the sound of the engine should suffice for music and a Nav unit with iPod interface is really a luxury, but I wanted both, especially for those long trips with my wife seated as co-pilot. I shopped around for awhile and ended up selecting a Pioneer AVIC D3 double din unit with an iPod interface cable. The double-din unit would not fit, but my installer and I came up with an obvious solution; we moved the climate control unit (which was in a funny location to begin with) in place of the lower of the two oddment catch-all boxes in front of the gearshift. It fits perfectly as is evident in newer models in which Porsche used the same space. Having ample space with the Becker and climate control unit out, my installer just had to fashion a bezel to frame the Nav as well as for the climate control unit. The result was a perfect fit; both the placement and operation are 5 stars (and it looks a lot like a much newer car!). The installation and unit were not cheap....not cheap at all (~ $1,800), but, as stated above, it looks and works GREAT. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: If anyone wants to see it, just ask. I will take a pic and post it here. Monterino - San Jose, CA
