Default Nav unit in base model

I want to fit a nav unit in my base model underneath the cubby. If i can find someone to do it, will this fit and look good? It seems from other posts like it's not as easy as i thought.


Here are the specs on it.

Kenwood - In-Dash Satellite Radio/Apple® iPod®-Ready/CD/DVD Player/GPS Receiver - DNX5120

thanks guys

The issue is the cubby hole is bigger in the front and gets smaller the deeper you get into it, plus it is not that deep. Most nav units are square/rectangle boxes, your best bet for the cubby is a smaller nav unit (just nav) or putting in only a screen and having a computer elsewhere with a single video cable ran to it.

There have been some installs of nav units elsewhere on the forum. It would appear that the length of the radio area is sufficient for nav units, assuming it follows some sort of length standard, probably the DIN spec, which almost all nav units are.
