Has Anyone Installed a NAV-TV Sirius System?


Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Targa 4 with a PCM but no nav system and no CD-Changer. There is no one in my area (Vicotria, BC Canada) that is a NAV-TV installer.

I bought a NAV-TV Sirius Satellite Module (Part - SIRPOR2 USB) that came with a Sirius Satellite Radio kit. Looking at the instructions in the Nav-TV box, it should be a realtively simple install. However, before I follow these instructions, I would like to ask if anyone here has installed this kit in a Porsche 997, and if so, do you have any advice to avoid pitfalls?

Where did you install the antenna?

If you have a C4 model, where did you install the Nav-TV and Sirius boxes?

Thanks for your time.

I had the kit installed and the antenna lives under the plastic below the wipers.

I just had it professionally installed. I have the NAV-TV unit and Sirius unit mounted on top of the Nav system. Antenna is between wipers on plastic cowling. Works great and saved $$ by not going to dealer for $1300 install.

I have an 06 C4 without Nav but with CD changer. I am interested in doing this. I am in Vancouver so your experience in Victoria is relevent. Where did you buy the equipment? Who installed it and how difficult was it. Does the system work well?

Thanks!

installed myself and if at all handy then you can do it too - removing the PCM is easy (gain access to the MOST loop) - then remove the glove box and there is just enough space to but both the sirius unit and the navtv unit behind there ...run the antenna wire into the trunk (a grommet behind right side of battery) and place the antenna under the cowl on the passenger side next to the nav antenna - i secured mine with double sided tape and has been secure ever since

probably took me 4 hours but was my first undertaking of this sort - could be done in less time with more skill

unit works great 99% of the time
