Hi 🙂 i have a 2011 1LT/RS Red cruze and mi question is :
I have read that in 2012 the cruzee navigation and will have as an option, which I’m interested in installing only that mine is 2011 1LT there will be the way of navigation of 2012 can be installed in 2011?
And I’m really interested, I have seen aftermarket the other which does not convince me.
Thank you for your attention and await your response as soon as possible.

Interesting scenario. I see that the biggest challenge would be getting your hands the actual navigation hardware from the 2012 Cruze. How are you planning on doing that?
Once you have it, swapping the screen would require taking out the monochrome unit and replacing it with the new color one. This is possible — the connecters are all the same for audio (voice guidance) and power — I’ve learned this by taking out mine as well as my friend’s 2011 with navigation. The most difficult part would be replacing your current “center button” (play/pause) with the up/down/left/right buttons from the navigation.
My advice? Once you have the 2012 hardware, take it over to a Chevy store and talk to one of the techs about it. Don’t do it “officially” — just get to know one of the techs personally… buy them lunch or give them concert tickets or something. Then have them swap it during their time off (like on a weekend). Otherwise, the dealer will charge you an arm and a leg.
Oh, and one more thing to consider: you’ll definitely be voiding the warranty… which is silly, considering you’re swapping one GM unit for another.
Let us know how it goes!

One thing I forgot to tell you that I have not installed navigation system, and have not used the navigation by OnStar.
once tried to purchase the navigation system but I was told that my car did not have to install the harness and if I want to be installing nevacion ke would have to buy all the harness that runs all vehicles would have to disassemble the entire interior to get the harness of the vehicle and put the new …..
but it would be better to have some adapters to adapt the navigation without having to change the harness …

Hmmm, I forgot about the harnesses. That’s a difficult thing to do.
I’d recommend what @alex recommended — at the very least try the OnStar navigation. It does everything the screen-based nav does, except for show you the color map.
PS: where are you planning on getting the 2012 navigation from?

but if you can adapt what they buy if not I would not buy it with the desire 🙁
