Adding factory navigation, is it worth the cost to keep the factory lo


Recommended Posts

I have an '06 997 with the PCM 2.1, I bought a navigation DVD unit off eBay for $450, and a Mobridge unit for $550 (for Bluetooth and iPod control) now I need all the cables, brackets, etc from the dealer. I'm getting quotes from $500 to $2000 from the dealers to do the job. Is it worth it to keep the stock look?

I guess that depends on how bad you want it. $5k for wheels and tires is probably never "worth it" but many of us do it anyway. :blush:

I personally would keep the stock look. If you plan on selling the car at some point it will help your resale. Shop around and see who can give you the most reasonable (not cheapest) price..

Where are you in CA?

Good luck

Have 06 C2 myself; when I was in the buying mode, I too wanted the full nav pack...which I found. That said, I use my Iphone all the time - very accurate, touch/voice controlled and no update DVDs to buy.

I was thinking about down the road, I know the factory system is not the best technology but I think you are right about the resale value down the road. My local dealer is Rusnak in Thousand Oaks and the service guy I talked to over the phone didn't seem very familiar with upgrading the navigation
