Good luck
You don't need a harness? So you just too your old one out since your car didnt have an oem navigation system already?

Just buy a Dynavin from Jeff. He's a great guy that provides great service and he even gives a military discount.

So your HVAC system doesn't wiggle without it? And did you get the wifi chip? Why extras did you purchase?

I'm not trying to knock Jeff or Dynavin, I private messaged him a few weeks ago. All I'm saying is 1000 dollars is a bit steep, although I paid that much for my Tahoe aftermarket stereo, when there are cheaper alternatives. Someone said it best, we are looking at a cheap chinese clone to a chinese product(Dynavin head unit). If that's the case then why do I pay more for the Dynavin? Because of the middle men. This is capitalism at it's finest. I cut out the middle man, I save $400-$500. Are you telling me that the 1 year warranty and the Dynavin name is worth that 400-500 extra? Is the military discount going to slice the price in half?

Purchased it off ebay! just a simple wifi usb

The whole installation took me about an hour. If you have no experience find the installation on youtube or if you're not confident take it to a local shop.

It's pretty simple and straight forward.

@trentcdrums, I paid 570 for it off a local buy and sell website from a chancer who advertised it as a Dynavin unit!! Beware!! My IPhone connects fine through Bluetooth. Somebody should set up a clone and a Dynavin unit beside each other and compare them. I can't compare mine to the Dynavin. It looks the same but not sure if the speed is similar etc.
