Tsx non navigation convert to navigation?

So i have a 06 tsx non navigation model and i want to swap in the oem navigation. If i get the complete oem navigation with all the plugs and wires would this be a simple swap over plug and play? Or will i need more stuff to make this work? TIA.

It is a PITA. but eventually i will do it and make a simple DIY.
It will be plug and play if you get all the harnessess.... but that's lots of $.

Just did a search, probably should of done that first lol. It doesn't look like it's gonna be that simple as I thought. My second choice is to just purchase a aftermarket DVD indash such as alpine, pioneer, and have a audio shop install and do the custom work on it I'm just thinking it's gonna cost a lot for that and to find a nice shop that will do quality work I want it to look oem.

Check out the Parrot Asteroid. I kinda wish I had a non-navi so I could put it in and not feel guilty about wasting the Navi.

I have that Alpine unit installed in one of my cars. Not a bad unit, pretty nice if you ask me. If you want to see installed pics I can show a couple.

a little late but please post up some pics, this is from a tsx correct?
how much was the cost for all the work? i found a private own local audio shop that quoted me a very good price for labor, he said he'll be able to wire everything plus fab out the dash with fiber glass to fit the dvd indash.

It was actually for an Acura Legend. For everything wired up I think I paid $200. This unit has A LOT of wires that fit behind the head unit. It can be a PITA to install but it looks OEM.

Do you have to tuck the wires under the carpet to wire up the GPS system located in the trunk? Someone know how place to complete the navi unit? finding a a bunch of PWP with navi but in okay condition. I might pick up a clean non navi and do the swap... =/
