They are all incorrect. You can put it right below your Navi unit, right where your cd player is currently, you just need to get a kit for it to fit properly.

No, I understood what you said. I have no idea what they are talking about. Probably unfamiliar with the TL. You wouldn't lose Nav with an aftermarket unit. I heard in the past you would lose the voice commands, but there are ways around it.

I'm hoping some of the fellas with Nav will chime in. I don't see how these shops can tell you this when I have been in 2 TL with an aftermarket HU and NAV.

I've been told you can do it, but the only thing you lose is the voice-guided directions. You can unplug the head unit and the navi still works, so I don't see why there would be an issue.

I'll try to get my boy to post on here. He has NAV and was using it while I was in the car with his system bangin. The guy you go to must just be unfamiliar with the way it needs to be done.
