    Pretty sure the J stopped using tech2 and used the new GDS2 for programming and diagnostics.

    Most likely people who offer tech2 services have now just also added the new diagnostic medium as well.

    That's right. Tech 2 doesn't work with the J.

    it's not quite so simple as changing the control box, you need the switch panel, display and trim panel. Then the wiring needs sorting out and a GPS aerial fitting.

    Once thats complete the car will need a VCI check and the 600 will need coding to the car with TECH 3 / GDS2

    Rusty on vxoc is the guy to speak too.

    I changed my CD400+ to a Navi 950, have a read of my thread to see what you might need to do http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...47-Astra/page3

    You won't need to do as much going from a cd400 to a Navi 600, but you might have to fit the navi 650 instead (VCI check might not allow a 600)

    @Vocky is right.

    In terms of Navi any can be fitted 600/900 650/950 In terms of options DAB DAB+ Bluetooth & Rear camera.

    As Vocky will confirm Rear camera is not a factory fitted option on the GTC/VXR but with some magic Vocky has rear camera.

    There is a draw back and that's that you lose the VXR boot logo.
