Upgrading to 2009 Nav/Head Unit?

Has anybody tried fitting a 2009> headunit/sat nav unit in an older car in order to get access to the USB port offered with these models. I assume you would also get track title displayed etc. It should just fit in the same space/connections, right?

Eco display
I think the head unit is the same (But maybe with a different firmware), but the Navigation/DVD drive in the glovebox is different. It is a SMGX and has an extra cable pluged into it next to the reversing camera port (See the pic on page 1 of this guide http://www.civinfo.com/forum/how/513...-easy-way.html )

I have located a breaker who has a Head Unit, Nav Unit & USB/Aux Connectivity from a 2010 civic. They want 500 but may be open to negotiation for cash I'm sure. Does anybody out there think that installing all this in a 2007 could actually work?

It's possible but there's a lot of work involved.
