Funny I was told this was impossible for quite a few years ;)

FYI this is a holden IQ with a PPV face running the impossible North American maps; it works!

Very cool, is it going to be repeatable or is it a major undertaking? I still need to get the other thing sent to you for programing. Was never able to get ahold of a tech 2.

It's repeatable and actually would be pretty simple upgrade to a PPV just swap the silver box and add GPS antenna.

I would be really interested in hearing exactly how you did this. I was planning on sending in my radio but if I could get nav and maybe the onboard hard drive then I would do that as well.

Its a completely different radio I was doing for a G8, more of just showing its possible to do NAV in these cars if you want to get the Holden IQ with Nav.

So you're saying if I make a quick trip down under and pick up the nav version of the IQ then I can just plug it into my car?

No. You'd need the radio silver box and our custom programming to make it work THEN you can plug it in ;)
