How hard and expensive is it to put navigation in a 2008 Acura MDX

Asked by Feb 20, 2012 at 07:32 AM about the 2008 Acura MDX SH-AWD

Question type: General

I am considering buying a 2008 Acura MDX that does not have Navigation and I
would like to add Navigation to this suv  if I purchase the used vehicle.

When they wire a vehicle in the production process, a different electrical bus (wiring harness) is used on cars with and without navi, so if you decide to upgrade to the factory type navigation, they will not only have to change the electrical wiring, but then add the Nav system too. My guess is that is will be an expensive option, several thousand dollars, unless you are willing to pay that, I'd opt for a high tech stand alone unit. Here's some reviews for the best on CNET.
