NAV for XF

97 posts in this topic

Guys, what's the price for this GPS Navigation unit to be installed onto the XF? I suppose doing this would void the warranty?

Is the price $1.5k or more or less? Seems like pple were quoting diff prices in this thread. Will you still retain the primary functions of the HU (valet lock, odometer info)

@Thomas,

First, I know you like to integrate NAV. Then, it's audio connectivity, then more... the level of difficulty goes from sea level to Everest summit if you want to integrate more interfaces into your screen, due to the lack of aftermarket equipments.

 

I wanted all these too.... I realized what I really wanted was the iPad to be integrated... Ha ha

 

Finally, I got an iPad and multisim, mounted it fashionably on the car, with the few apps on my fingertips:

1) Waze for GPS

2) Music and Video via Bluetooth connectivity

3) Baby monitor (connected to home)

4) Skype

5) Hungry Go Where

6) SIRI!

And everything I ever needed...

Was just at Elebest over the weekend.

Met with Max, and my understanding is that he only could do modifications for 2011/2012 XF onwards.

 

He first need the audio integrated system to already have NAV before he can tap on it for other interfaces.

This is my own mod to mount my iPad mini.

- Just an idea, install at own risk. -

Yes, I always search by postal code. I can't search by street name. If you can't search by postal code, what are you searching based on?

Yup, mine different from yours. Problem with postal code is that I need to search for postal code of buildings that I want to go. I can't key in Plaza Singapura. I need to search the postal code online. They shd make both options available.

Yours is the same as mine. Can you enter using local places/addresses? I have problem doing so.

Thanks Darknight. I have problem searching by address when I first got the car. Have been using postal code since.

You are right, postal code is usage is Teh best. I did try doing a recheck and found the street name, address Nav steps are a bit cumbersome, here's what I found when I types for Tampines 7dfbbe7ac397e8a0c58fe4667ebf094a.jpg
