  • satnav

    hi
    my friend has a satnav and i have the standard console in my nurburg. he has kindly offered it to me as he is selling his car. i have had a look at the how to guides but wanna double check that i have to remove everything from bottom up?
    also do i just need the console from his car? what about antenna? etc.


    thanks

    Your going to have to divorce it from the orginal car and match it up with yours or something like that i'm sure of it? i think u need a Tech2 to do this. Might be wrong though .

      You will need the stereo unit itself i.e. the cd70 and the colour screen (CID) from his car. You will also need a GPS antenna but believe it would be easier to buy one off ebay for a couple of quid than to strip it from your mates. Then just swap them over and should be fine.

        Think thats only needed when your just changing the stereo or screen. As long as the screen and stereo are taken from the same car it should be ok.

          But then come the time if 1 goes faulty how will you be able to divorce the faulty unit, to replace it. As 1. it will be in the wrong car and 2. you wont know the code.

          Best idea is to divorce and remarry into new car

              You cant just take the sat nav, The sat nav is part of the stereo. I have heard that the facia's can come off but it wont work with your old facia, youll need to buy another cd70 one and considering there isnt many around anyway and they fetch quite a bit complete i doubt anyone would be willing to strip it down,

                Agree with Phatashki, very unlikely someone is going to strip down something so valuable. My advice would be to forget this one if its the wrong colour and either get a piano black one or buy a double din stereo such as the VXMMI which has built in sat nav already. Tech2 is the system used to diagnose and program the electrical systems on the car. 'Marrying' and 'divorcing' in this case means that the head unti and screen will only work properly when they have been paired together using the tech2 system. The 'marrying' part is when they are connected together and the 'divorcing' is the opposite. When they arent married the system does not work properly.

                    The only 'lead' you will need is the GPS antenna. Can take it off the donor car but believe its behind the roof lining so would just buy one off ebay for a few quid.

                      at the back of the satnav are two sockets, one normal not sure what the other is.
                      the back of the head unit has two other sockets different from my head unit.

                      i can get access to the donor car to take the leads to if possible can you tell me which and how to take the leads out.

                      your help is much appreciated
