How to Install OEM Navigation into the Outlook - An Illustrated Guide

This week I installed the factory Navigation unit in place of the factory radio with the Advanced Audio Package.
We do not have the rear DVD system.
The whole process took about 1.5 hours to do. the hardest part is getting the courage to tear apart your new car. The second hardest part is fishing the GPS wire through the dash.
If you have good skills with tools and take your time, it is a pretty easy job to do.

Please ask me any questions about the install and I will try my best to help you.

Only a few hand tools are needed:

Be sure and tape the GPS wire down on the foam part also. If you only tape the blue connector, you may rip it off as you fish it through.

Would this work without the advanced audio package?

I wish I knew for sure that it would, but I am not sure. Since the Advnaced Audio Package was required for the Navigation, there may be some connection between the two. I think I read somewhere that the vehicle speed sensor is used to help the GPS determine its location. The speed sensor is used for the speed sensitive volume in the Advanced Audio pkg. I also read that you may be able to run a VSS wire from the radio to the proper plug in location and have the capability.

Sad to say, but I am guessing many repair techs do not know this. When I had my unit activated the tech had no idea even where to insert the Nav DVD or even how to open the Nav unit to insert it. I had to go back and show him, and I am not a mechanic.

Re: How to Install OEM Navigation into the Outlook - An Illustrated Guide

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the post on installation. I am about to order a new Outlook and I am still wondering how do you feel the factory type nav system compares to the aftermarket units (ex. Garmins, Magellan's etc.)?

My hats off to you for doing such a big project. If I was going to get factory system, I think I will just order it. Just curious on your thoughts about feature/functionality/visibility of your unit. I like the fact that all of the night illimuniation will match the rest of interior, but with other aftermarket units advertsed starting at about 300 bucks, I wanted your take on how well it works.

TX
