Yes, I believe so. You need to also remove the stand-alone GPS reveiver (the MkIV has this built in) and plug the antenna cable directly into the back of the MkIV.

Some early 1998 model year cars had the MKI navigation system, which had a slightly different trunk cable. It is still pretty easy to upgrade to a MKIV from a MKI, but it is not direct plug-and-play. Does your nav have the male voice or the female voice?
