I successfully retrofitted the OEM Navigation unit to my non navigation FN2
I'll post a full clip and instructions for any crazy enough person that tries to do this in the future.

The result looks amazing!

Waiting for some components so i can enable rev camera and iphone screen mirroring.
:laugh2:

as promised, behold the clip:

http://https://youtu.be/5_WJawwt99I
it's still uploading so give it like 3 hours..

Disclamer:

It's 45 mins long because i tried to keep everything kind of realtime to give future *** an insight of how big this job is actually.
I think I covered all the aspects.
In the end I didn't use the steering wheel/airbag wire loom as I didn't need it.
Will have to fit the dual antenna loom in the end but i'll do that when I make the rev camera / iphone mirroring hack happen and post another (sorter) clip.

PS: excuse the crap sound.... Faeiyu tech g5 v2 just wrecks the audio from a go pro 5.... don't buy fy products....

I think it depends on the year? - i have a 2009 with sat nav but apparently there is no way to get a conversion lead to connect a 3rd party camera to the video input. if it was 2008 i would have been ok!

i’ll film another tutorial when all the bits arrive.
update after a couple of days::
the headlight adjustment still doesn’t work and now the button illumination of the cd player and other buttons on the dash stopped working but i think that’s down to me not using contact cleaner on the new loom when i fitted it and also down to the glovebox bulb .
probably will have to take the dash out again haha... damm

Antena loom final mood

In order to get the taffic updates/messages you'll need to replace the antena loom also.

And for some fin reason i can't post the link due to low post count

PS: if you atempt to do this beware of the following:
My model was a SI
after replacing the wire loom i noticed all is working except the headlight adjustment and also i get a engine whine on the stereo( that's easy to get rid of)
did a bit of research and found out that the model i took the navi off was an EX that had HID's therefore it had a Hid leveling system, hence my headlight adjustment not working.
Sooo, i've got 2 options:
either to atempt to retrofit the original HID mechanism
or modify my wire loom to bypass that.
Either way I'll probably do another clip with either one I choose to do.

The headlight levelling system linkage tends to seize and seems generally unreliable.

See this link

I suspect there will be a lot of HID equipped cars driving around with a broken level sensor linkage, but won't be aware as it's behind the undertray.

hi Robbie!

thanks for the reply, i actually stumbled across that thread a while ago.

If anyone knows of a way to bypass those sensors i'd be grateful.
Atm I don't even know where they connect to, I mean i have a faint feeling it's at that big plug near the gear shifter as when i was fitting the new loom that was the only one that had some extra pins wired that weren't connected on my car's other loom that goes to the back.

This was a good video to watch, was a shame about the audio but I could still hear you fine :)


I'm planning on doing a conversion of the screen into a non-sat-nav dashboard (got the screen unit on the way). Did this bolt straight up into the dashboard where the old smaller display was? I'm also wondering whether any additional plastic trim was needed around the screen? I can see that the flat panel needs bringing over from the sat-nav dash as it dives down to show more screen, but did any other parts around that area need replacing too?

from what i remember all you need is that plastic trim that goes under the screen, you’re right, the navigation one dives a bit deeper in the dashboard as the navi screen is bigger.
the gps unit bolts in straight away, the whole is there alreaddy,
the only anoying thing is at the dvd unit in the glove box , onthe navigation models there are 2 bolts welded to the frame intended to keep the dvd unit in place.
my car didn’t have those bolts so i 3d printed some clamps and that worked just fine.
my email is [email protected]
if you have a 3d printer i can send you the gcode files so you can print them yourself.
PS sorry about the audio of the clip.
it’s a known issue with gopro hero 5 and those faeiyu tech g5 gimbals.
