Anyone put aftermarket nav in zl1?

i am replacing my speakers and adding a sub in my zl1.
I really don't like the aftermarket double dins by metra and scosche.

What is everyone doing with their zl1s?

I thought about doing clean sweep and amp and keeping stock head unit but not CD player, no hd radio??

The way they set these systems up sucks with having to replace heater controls with radio.

I use the Waze app on my iPhone 6 with a phone holder. Talks to you and has a decent size screen. Also gives real traffic and cop reports! A zillion times better than any factory nav. And you don't have to take your car apart!!

I'm inclined to believe that most people use nav on their phones with few exceptions.

Same here with a bluetooth connection to the car so I get the directions through the speakers still.

I just use the phone app over bluetooth like waze, google maps, apple maps. I don't like nav headunit's anymore with how phones are going seems like a waste of money.

then again I liaten to satilite radio or streamed music 100% of the time and have not played a cd in 3 or 4 years so my needs might be different.


scoshe and metra both make dash kits but i just don't see it being worth it or really like either of them. cheaper IMO to just clean up the signal and use the factory head unit.

Yeah I don't use nav Much on receiver but I am putting high end speakers in so that's the way I am going to go. Just ordered pioneer nex8000 and should be installed late next week If this snow ever lets up!

If you want decent sound on the stock system you need to try WAV files on a drive. Much better than MP3. Keep in mind if you try it there can be no other files on the drive, just WAV only.

I don't use Nav so I got nothing there. The wife made me try it once and it seemed to work ok.

The new nav pioneer unit will do either lossless or flax files from usb. One of first do actually have a decent DAC built in. Excited to hear it paired with both sets of focals krx2 and stealthbox sub.
