I really like the radio that has the Nav and all that jazz. Is it really a PITA to switch out my stock radio?

Just trying to see if its worth the work and money.

i have had my center bezel off a couple times b4 and it's super easy. it's just some constant pressure and patience. as far as upgrading the radio, i don't really know what all goes into upgrading. used double din bezels are a pita to find and the new ones are not all that cheep.

I have a guy in Schaumburg who can do the install cheap.
I tried to do my own and probably could have figured it out but just lost patience and let a shop do it.

I think Vic has the Mygig Nav in his chally. You can put one in your Mango but you will need the lockpic thing for it. I think it costs around $250.

And Chrystal, You should be able to put the nav in easily but as far as the antenna goes, i have no clue what you have to do there.

The antenna and speed sensor was my problem. I has everything working except the nav, thats when I lost patience and took it to the shop.

So where do they mount the antenna? I might be able to install it for anybody upgrading if I knew where its supposed to go.

I would like to as well. I just saw a Kenwood with a built Garmin for Nav.

With my Bezel, I'm probably gonna havve to order a double din from the dealer or somewhere.

Definitely should do it.. I actually think the MyGig w/NAV is a great radio and no need to go aftermarket IMO..
