    Default Aftermarket Radio Install

    I have a 2008 Coupe with the Bose system, Non-Nav XM Radio installed. I am considering installation of an aftermarket Nav radio. I have read that I will lose all HUD functionality with any aftermarket install. Can anyone verify this.

    The Nav radio was already gone when I bought 007 and the HUD was working. I've changed the radio twice since then and it still works.

    BTW, Welcome to CAC. Post some pictures of your car when you have time.

    Look around for the various adapters, etc. that get sold as add-ons to the aftermarket radio. I added an aftermarket radio to a Dodge Charger and out of the box it lost all the integrated functionality. I bought the aftermarket wiring harness and a "translator" and everything worked. They are all plug and play.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm still reading in various places that there is some use of HUD functions. I think it's in the Nav functions that show up on the HUD which wouldn't affect me since I don't have Nav now. I was more concerned with keeping the Speedometer data. Radio and turn signal data also show on my HUD. Can anyone tell me if the adaptors will allow me to keep this.
