    Default SatNav upgrade

    I'd like to upgrade to the SatNav radio and colour screen in my car.

    What exactly is involved in swaping from the standard head unit and screen in the Vectra SRi 2008 model? I know that you have to change the arial base on the roof and probably buy the looms but is it possible to do my self if I get the parts or do I have to ask the money grabbing people lookers or some where like that?

    you could just get a separate fakra gps antennae which you put in your dash and will save you having to take your roof lining to install the new roof antennae and it wires etc.. many of the guys on here have done it when uprgading to a CD70 navi with a CID (colour screen)... I have one spare if you decide to go that way.. the updated map Cds are easy enough to get hold off... I did not need a tech2 on mine, but yours maybe different.. i took out a cd30 which was in there for some reason, was supposed to be a cd70 in my car but i think the previous owner sold it at some point..

    I'm wondering how much all the parts would cost about? I was quoted £1200 by lookers vauxhall about a year ago. but obviously that is at top whack.

    I would have to speak to someone who has actually fitted one to a car that has a cd30 originaly. Looks a good price for the gear but I'd have to get the loom and the arial. Any way don't have the money right now.

    Only loom needed is the one between head unit and CID and this should be with it so you could just buy it plug it in and it will work,all you would need is an aerial for about £10 off ebay
