Alternative navigation install?

Hello everyone!

I was wondering if anyone installed one of those:

CS-HY030 CAR DVD WITH GPS FOR HYUNDAI I30 2012 / Hyundai Elantra GT 2012 - Shenzhen Cusp Technology Co.,Ltd - CUSP The best Car DVD,Car GPS,Car audio,Car Monitor,car multimedia,Car Radio manufacturer



I do not have navigation and this seems like decent alternative but I am not sure how well does it work and what is the procedure to remove original unit. It might be too much hassle if I must take half the dashboard apart.

Cheers!

Do you really need or want an in-dash navigation system? It'll be much easier and cheaper just to get a wind-shield mounted GPS unit like a Garmin or TomTom, plus it'll be much easier to do software/map updates or troubleshooting on those then a built-in unit.

I also have a feeling that doing this kind of modding would void some of your warranty.

Garage
We have several forum sponsor vendors who sell in dash navigation systems that fully integrate with the car. I would go with one of those if I wanted to upgrade rather than a random chinese unit.

Thanks for replies!
I think electronics have one year warranty so that is not big deal.
I do not want separate unit because I do not want my window broken or hassle to remove it all the time out of the sight. As for updates those are just winCe I think, you can install any software you like.

As for sponsors they do not offer unit for GT. I even emailed one of them and they do not have it. I went over website for any sponsor that seemed like they do navigation and I think GT is too new or just too small for them.

My biggest concern is, how does one take original unit out...

Thanks again!

It really isn't that hard to take the dash apart. The silver trim takes a little to "pop" it loose, but once you get one side started it isn't too bad. I was a little nervous as I didn't want to break anything, but had no problems taking it off. Once the silver trim is off, the rest is fairly simple. A couple screws and the headunit and HVAC unit slide right out. I looked at the video (in my first link below) prior to taking apart my dash. Just start by the gear shifter and work your way up.

Check out the video here for removal of the dash (second video in the first link): Complete Amp, Speaker, and Wire Install Guide

I put together a bit of a DIY guide specific to the GT as I was installing my sub & amp. You can check that out here: 2013 GT Stereo Install - ElantraClub - For Hyundai Owners and Enthusiasts

I think between these two topics, you should have a fairly easy time with the install.

It's not cheap, but I'm looking at getting the Kenwood DNX-9990HD navigation unit installed ($1300 at crutchfield). It has the Garmin navigation w/free updates and up to date traffic. Only complaint I've really heard is about the lag.

This would need some custom trim and I did not see trim plate that would accommodate standard 2 din units anywhere. Price is crazy too I guess...

That's what I'm waiting for now Can't wait until they have harness kits and whatnot. I don't want to have to have a custom install done. But otherwise, I love the Kenwood & Alpine double din's to control my system (EQ, time alignment, etc).
