  • Used GPS navi units?

    Seen these for sale in HouseOFF etc. How do you fit them? I have a navi but the disc tray or something is broken. Would I need it professionally plumbed in or could I do it myself? Presuming I know how to take off the dash bezel (I don't but it can't be that hard).

    Nissan quoted 7man to fix mine, which is bull____.

    Yes - a dealer would be your most expensive option. But a Yellow Hat, or one of the other parts and services shops - could do it cheaper and would have access to any necessary mounting or missing items. You might want to share the model number before you purchase - just to make sure that they can indeed do it, and what that cost would be.

    Additionally - there are smaller shops - doing body repair, tires, shaken, etc. - and they might even be cheaper - but might not have good access to parts.

      If you can get the same make/model as the broken one, then it's just plug and play.

      My first one, I found instructions online and fitted it myself.

      Some makes you can get a wiring loom adapter so it just plugs straight in.

      But if you're not a big DIYer then I'd agree that Autobacs, Yellow Hat or a small specialist shop would be your best bet. May be better to ask them before you buy the replacement unit, to be sure they'll be able to fit it.

        Thanks guys.

        My car is currently at the body shop after an ojiisan ____ed it. I went there yesterday and had a look. It has had the entire right side removed, and the floor, and the windscreen, and the dash/steering wheel etc. I wonder if I could claim the disc tray problem as a result of the crash and get them to fix it...
