I think you should start off by typing complete words. Unless you are posting from a cell phone or something in which case... abbreviate away. You do realise you only saved yourself 7 keystrokes by typing that way right? I just had to mention it as illiteracy bugs the crap out of me.

More on topic: Depends on what you want (looks, functionality, how much you want to spend), you can have the factory navi installed for quite a pretty penny, or you could go with one of those simple aftermarket navigation units for $300-500.

You could also get an aftermarket head unit with a screen that includes a navigation disc... only problem with those is you have to put hte disc in any time you want directions.

I'd say the most efficient choise would be the aftermarket navigation, like tom-tom (but not tomtom, because those commercials are annoying). You can probably find something better and cheaper.

^^lmao. There are a few threads on installing a factory navi. However, the general consensus is that it's not worth the work. Try a search.

Hi, I'd like to know why is too hard or complicated to install and to a honda accord that did not came with navigation. The reason, I've a full navigation system (dash top panel console, trunk dvd unit, and navigation unit with 6cd's) I even got antenna for the dvd unit that goes in the trunk and part of the pigtail wiring. My car is Accord 2DR EX 6Cylinder and came with the stock 6 cd player with satellite radio. I was wondering if it could be possible to install it but then I saw you giving someone else an opinion that it could be really complicated it. Please I'd like to know if you can direct me on how to do it or have someone with experience do it for me if it's possible. If not, then I just sell it so I can get my money back. NOTE: the complete system came of a accord 2004 EX-L Sedan 6Cylinder. I will appreciate it your help, thank you again.

Chonomey, it's because of the number of panels and the complicated wiring that you have to run and splice into that makes it a not-worthwhile project for a lot of people.

Chonomey, If you have all parts in place, all the you will need is a custom wiring harness. If you are not sure how to splice the wires, there is a guy on ebay that sells the OEM navigation systems hondaacuratech(i guess), aka Martin that sells the harness for around 300$.

You could go with an aftermarket setup like this w w w.fadfusion.com/selection.php?product_item_number=20081400304
Not all aftermarket setups require you to put a disc in. Sorry about the weird link posting, I'm new on here so I can't post links yet.

@LFSoccer2k6 I'm trying to get my posts up so I can post links but I don't just want to troll to get posts. I like to contribute something useful to the threads, but for now, Thanks for the aid.
