Navigation systems.

Did a search and didn't locate anything on this topic.

Wondering if any of you guys have attempted an aftermarket NAV install. Pioneer has a nice flush mount system out now, which dosen't have the flip up screen like their earlier systems. Granted that you would either have to purchase some sort of adapter or custom mold it, it seems to be the closest thing to an OEM Look.

It's got quite a few attractive features, touch screen, Point of Interests, option for rear cameras, XM Traffic, etc..

The model I'm referring to is below:

Pioneer Navigation

Many have looked into this. What scares most away from pulling the trigger is if you remove the OEM head unit you also lose the ability to control the On Board Computer functions. Something to think about....

Let me rephrase...I was referring to X5's that do not come with the OEM NAV unit.

As was I. Again, if you remove you OEM radio that's in the dash then you will lose the ability to control the OBC functions.
