    So I bought my 07 350 a few days ago and I've been interested in this as well. I searched for a bit on my350z.com, and it's a real pain in the @ss. You basically have to tear the car down to the metal (possibly to reach some harnesses), and put in a ton of work on top of that to get a decent install. No one recommended doing it, and all said that a car pc was a much better option. Take that for what it's worth :shrug: But if you want to search some more, check out my350z.com's forums.

      This is a tough question to get answered here (most people are doing car pc's on this site rather than oem systems). Based on the complexity you'd be better off installing a car pc into the car since the factory parts could cost you close to double what a really nice install would end up running. If you're interested in just a nice aftermarket navigation option there are several forums out there devoted to installing those. Good luck with the install, it's a fun project to have.

        About $5000 just to run navigate. More if you want to add an aftermarket device to just run DVD's.

        Not sure, but I think I priced most of it here and on e-bay. It's really much cheaper and A LOT more versatile to go with a car pc and mock nissan front end.

        My opinion is my own.

          What Dan said.

          The factory Nav is not all that great anyhow. If you are not interested in a carPC, then get one of the integrated Nav/CD player things, like the Avic N1 or the like.

            for what it's worth, my infiniti has the stock nav already, but it's medocre at best... I just moved it overhead & put a pc in the dash anyway.

            to retrofit nav to non nav is crazy work, you need to replace the head unit, then theres a seperate nav unit, theres a seperate av box in the right side of the dash, all your harnesses are different... only way it would be practical or sane would be with a complete donor vehice & even then it's a huge project. not worth it, you'd be better off selling your car & buying one with nav if you had to have it really...
