Help Please Upgrading Oem Nav System!


I've searched but don't see any info on options to upgrade from the oem nav system without HK. Is it possible to use the oem nav and still get decent sound from the system? I have a 4 channel amp and was thinking of using that with new component speakers up front and decent speakers in the rear. I also want to hook up a sub to this system. Is this a lot of work, or is it even doable? Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes it is possible to have the OEM nav and not have H/K. In the US there is Stereo, Hi-Fi, and Harmon Kardon options for the audio system. If you tell me what have or what your car used to have as OEM and tell me the last 7 digits of your VIN I can tell you the part number of the wiring harness you will need for the OEM NAV.

Also be aware that the parts for retrofitting a OEM, MKIV widescreen nav cost a little over $4000 new from the dealership and that is a discounted price. Regular retail with no discount could easily reach 6k.

Sorry I wasn't clear before

Thanks for the reply guys, but I wasn't clear in my question. I already have Oem Nav with out the HK system. Are there any differenced in upgrade options for me than say having no nav and non HK system? Or is it the same. I just want better sound and have a 4 channel amp laying around i want to use with some new speakers and a sub in the future. Thanks for any help, and sorry about the confusion.
