    The CD70 and CID is probaly the easy part its only some missing wires.. but eh UHP module (bluetooth) theres lot more involved.. Andy.l here has retrofittet it in to 7-8 cars where its all working... but the UHP alone is about 250-300£

    There are several threads for swapping a CD30 to CD70 Navi...I did this.
    If you want an easy way to do it then here's what I did.

    Obtain CD70 and screen from donor vehicle.
    Also obtain small vga link cable, that is separate from main instrument loom (if using colour map screen - CID).
    Obtain small patch / manetic sat nav aerial

    1) Tech 2 old radio and screen out
    2) install sat nav aerial and vga cables
    3) fit screen
    4) fit radio
    5) tech 2 radio and screen into car...

    away you go....as for getting one

    CD70's and screens appear on e-bay regularly...ensure that the seller is genuine - rating as near to 100% as possible...also verify whether the radio and screen are married or in safe mode.

    Depending whether they are married or not, you will then need to view the other threads about the cost implications of tech 2 or the inability to tech 2 married radios when they are not in the donor vehicle.
    tech 2 at vaux is approx £60 + vat

    note also that the colour screen became "widescreen" on the 2006 onward models and so doesn't fit the air-vent surround of cars upto 2005.

    just to find out a bit more now then...

    Ive decided against the whole sat nav bit for the mo as my funds cant stretch that far....

    however... is there a way that i can get things like MPG, trip, details on the display in the middle without to much ball ache...

    can this be done by just replaceing the screen? or do i need a whole new stereo?

    as above i have the standard CD30 stereo... the BC button does squat all... but would it if i added something ?

    all help is greatly appreciated sorry if the Qs have been asked before...

    Thanks.
