I have looked into this and my advice is don't bother. Should I had known about the ins and outs of the EX sat nav unit, I would have avoided an EX all together.
With the right kit, you retain steering wheel control (radio must be compatible and correct loom). You will also need the fascia panel - this will set you back around an extra £120-ish - so factor that in to the cost.
You will lose the sat nav screen picture - so you will have a large dead screen on the dash with no output- This also means that while you can control the air con / heating using the buttons on the drivers dash you will not be able to see what fan outputs you have selected, or air con on/off!
Better off just getting a Xcarlink and be done with!
