Fitting SAT NAV to 51reg Tourer
Please could someone help? I***8217;m thinking of putting sat nav into my much loved sports tourer. I want to stay away from all those Tom Tom***8217;s that stick on the inside of the windscreen as it is becoming an open invitation for car crime but I***8217;m not much of auto electrician.
All I want to buy is a sat nav that is sort of built into the radio and would display the info on the existing dashboard screen (the one in the middle of the car) I***8217;ve been looking on
for a solution and think I might have found something (please check out the auction number 200191968997). Basically I want to just take out the original stereo and plug the sat nav straight in without any messing. Is this possible?
The unit I have seen is a Carminat sat nav / cd / radio unit (Becker TBT BE 7412).
It is advertised to suit post 2003 models but may fit 2001 models onwards.
Would this suit my 2001 model? If not would it be just a case of fitting a post 2003 dashboard screen to enable me to get the graphics required (would it fit and work?) as well as the sat nav. Also are up to date discs available for this unit?
Thanks for your time, any information would considerably stop me from getting lost!!!
