Did that recommendation work?

Also, how do you disconnect the navigation computer? I thought it's hardwired in the trunk?

Thanks! When I last looked at it it looked much harder than just described.

get hold of another unit and connect. if it works then your nav. unit is shot.i had the same problem with mkiii now i"ve just upgraded to mkiv.here in south africa no expertise to repair.i am sure you could repair yours.

if the plugs are the same then its just plug and play.my advice to you is to try and get someone to borrow theirs be it amkiii /mkiv to solve your nav.issue.if all goes well then go for it.however you might encounter one problem which is the nav.disc.one might be wired up for PROFESSIONAL or BUSINESS.take your VIN NO.to any agent and they will be able to tell you.
