    Navi/Head unit into non navi head unit si?!?!?

    My si originally didn't come with the nice touch screen... If I bought one is it a plug and play? Or not at all.

    I looked into this recently because I was interested in trading my coupe with nav in on a sedan. All of the sedans I found within 200 miles of me were non-nav. So I wanted to see what it took to buy and install the OEM nav system.

    It gets very pricey. There are other wiring harnesses you need to switch out. If you go on a Honda OEM parts site like College Hills and look up navigation sys parts for an Si w/ nav, you can see the parts and what they cost. The head unit itself, if I remember correctly, is about $1900. That's new of course. You'd find it cheaper used. There may even be other parts you need that cannot be purchased.

    There are multiple harnesses, brackets, a antenna among other things. It will be about 2000 for parts plus labor for a TFT kinda dated unit, going aftermarket you lose alot of features like imid,hands free, factory Bluetooth microphone, plus others. In the summer alpine is coming out with a unit that is 100 percent compatible, I would not waste huge cash on a outdated unit, IMO.

    Pretty much unless you find some one selling it used for like 200 its not worth it....an aftermarket head unit will give you more power audio wise, better gps navigation, more features, list goes on and at a way better price. I think the best aftermarket nav money can buy is like 1000 something..and thats like top of the line crazy stuff...300 will get you navi, bluetooth, usb/sd, apps , ipod control you name it

    Thanks guys for the replies! I'll wait until summer. I'm in need of speakers so that's what I'll do until then. I appreciate you all!

    I currently have the navi in my hybrid and it's nice but like others have said the aftermarket models are alot better than Honda's. It's great to know that Alpine is coming out with 100% compatible version so people wouldn't have to go through this wiring harness and extra crap. Might be easy for me to swap out with Alpine when it comes out long as it's reasonably priced.

    It's absolutely absurd to pay $2k+ for a Honda Navi! That is highway robbery. Lucky for us we have other options.
