Hi all,

Got a none sat nav mk8 civic, been reading up about swapping the system out to the sat nav version. Now i understand that it is a full loom swap and such, im not actually bothered about the satnav what i want is a working screen in the dashboard.

So, my question is, can i swap the standard stereo to the sat nav stereo and the heater/radio screen to the sat nav version?

I know the standard stereo does not work with the sat nav screen version and i dont want a double din screen stereo. I want a stealthy screen for a project and want to keep the radio functions working and standard.

Hope thats enough info, thanks!

You can, it's a ball ache but yes. In fact I think someone opened up a thread today where they have just ripped the sat nav, loom and head unit out of theirs. Snap it up quick mate as this is the first time I've ever seen someone with the whole kit ready in one package.

sorry, i think i should of explained what i hoped to do.

I was hoping to buy the sat nav radio and the sat nav screen/heater screen combo and just plug them both in, in place of mine, would this work? are the plugs the same? without messing with the loom.

I read somewhere that just replacing the stereo with the sat nav version will cause the radio display to display garbage as its a smaller screen.

I basically want a working stereo and screen, with a blank sat nav screen i can use for something else

Sorry now I see what u mean. No I don't think it's that easy without the loom as the output from the sat nav unit incorporates the sat nav screen, not the standard clock/heater screen.

Yes pulling it all out is easy, but you need a specific loom as the non sat nav civics don't have the correct wirring to link the new screen u would need to put in the dash in order to see the actual sat nav display.

Yes the process of putting sat nav head unit and display into a civic which does not have it is possible, but it's not an easy job and the wirring is the main difficulty.

I opened thread to see if there is any intereset. Loom is same for audio part and clima control on display; addition is navigation screen and dash is bit diffrenet on satnav car. Hole for display is deeper so not sure if it will fit without any cutting on nonsat nav car. I Know you can swap from satnav to non satnav without any problem. Dvd unit in glovebox controls satnav screen. Hope this helps

ah i might of misread but lets ignore the sat nav screen, the actual screen itself. id imagine there are 2 plugs, one for sat nav display and one for radio? im not fussed about the wiring for the sat nav display, just the radio. would my loom plug into this radio display? i kinda believe it would since people have said that garbage is displayed on the screen from a none sat mav head unit.

so, if i replace my head unit with a sat nav headunit then the new sat nav radio screen should display ok? again, the satnav screen can have no loom, i just want it as project screen

hope this make sense.
