I have not kept up with the times on the available upgrade options that are PNP these days.

12 Years ago, with the Alpine F1 Processor on the top console, and all sorts of goodies in the trunk, Focal BE 3 ways, with T/MR custom A Pillared, I thought I was the baddest m'er on the block. But man, these new PNP offerings are just as Stealth and Sweet !

I couldn't do it either. I think it looks kinda cool I think but no way I could get myself to do it.

This also retains the mk4 and my ocd would kill me having two radios, two navis, double of everything.

LOL, or put another aftermarket head unit in and enjoy a huge nav screen and watch youtube, movie, etc on the lower screen. J/K of course, but it's a funny thought.

That's what I would do if I did that. I would have the android app going on the lower screen showing mpg, trip info and the top one showing nav

I think this unit needs to retain the factory nav to work unless Iím wrong as it tees off the oem nav.

I initially thought of putting this screen on the dash and putting the business cd on the bottom.

I have a spare dashboard so was willing to risk it.

But also donít know if business cd can be retrofitted in place of factory nav as well.
