Cd400 to nav500 upgrade.
Thanks for the reply, very helpful and sounds like I need a lot of kit. I assume eBay is your fiend for sourcing these? I'd certainly make a trip to Bourenemoth as fitting would be well beyonsd my capability. Would this be a good starting point:

Yes ebay breaker yards are the place to look, always better if you can go and remove it yourself as you can get the important cables without them being cut.

CD400 TO NAV500 UPGRADE

So you may have heard ANDY from VXMODS has fitted the NAV,500 To my astra j today
i had the CD,400 as standard and Andy has done alot of research to make this work
so as his slogan says he is doing the things that Vauxhall and many others have said can not be done
everything works on the NAV 500 SAT,NAV and USB he also reactivated the Bluetooth and DAB
that i had already retro fitted so you will not lose the Bluetooth if you have already had it retro fitted it will still work
here is a before picture with the CD,400

here are a few random pictures of the NAV,CD,500 that has just replaced the old CD400 unit

I am over the moon with this retro fit
and its another astra j VX.O.C first
i now have the nav,500, USB, DAB AND Bluetooth and all are as factory fit.  
i knew if anyone could do this it would be Andy from VXMODS
so if you have any questions or want more info on how this was done
VXMODS have there own section on here in the trader section
sure he will be working out prices for this retro fit very soon.

SO THE QUESTION CAN THE CD400 BE UPGRADED TO THE NAV500 on the Astra j THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS YES IT CAN.

So despite what you may have heard on other forums this is now possible
he also says the NAV,600 should work as well
Also if he can get the NAV,600 to work then there are retro fit software updates
to turn the NAV,600 into the nav800 and nav900 upgrade
so that will be very interesting.

i can also say if you use a second hand NAV unit
the NAV disc will already be installed on the NAV and all the info will be there when you swap it over
i did get the disc as well with this so i have if for back up.

also if you want the Bluetooth and DAB to work they will have to be retro fitted separate
and the USB will come as part of the NAV unit.

If you are looking for a NAV unit from ebay etc
you will need the NAV unit, the NAV screen, the correct front display, and the tray for the USB. and the shark fin for the GPS

ANDY CAN NOW DO THE NAV600 AS WELL
So NAV500 and NAV600 can be done Astra J and GTC.

I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE LOOKING TO DO THIS TO CONTACT ANDY FROM VXMODS FIRST
BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING....look in the trader section
Hi,

Can you help me to connect my cd500 into my ASTRA ST with CD400?
I have CD400 with bluetooth, but I think I need a connector that has two cables to connect to the CD500.
Or altering of wiring but I don't get the electric wiring plan.
Can you help me? 

Regards

Hello
 
I have a CD300 with BT in my car (Astra J 2010). If I upgrade to CD500 or DVD 800 is a plug and play installation or I need to change cables and something else? The BT module can work with this new radio?
 
Thank you.

Hi all,

So I want to get on the band waggon of trying to upgrade my CD400 to a NAV600 (or alternative).

I'm able to purchase the unit, but I wouldn't even contemplate trying to install the unit myself.

I'm wondering is there anybody who has the skills and equipment to possibly install this on my behalf?

Thanks,

You current USB would need to be changed as the USB/AUX is combined, and it's linked into the SD port.

I'll look up the part numbers for you.

In terms of fitting I can fit and program to your car but I'm based in Bournemouth.

Hi Glenn,

Parts can be got from GPS You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. or local dealer.

My charge to install the unit program so it's fully working is Navi 600/900 650/950 fitting and programming £250 (no parts supplied).

Your radio will programmed to have DAB, BT & Rear camera (in-case you ever wanted to fit it later).

Hi, Fellow members..newbie here
I have been following this thread with interest, as i am in process of replacing my cd400 with cd600 navi.
I have managed to get most parts including the wiring loom from a 2011 (same as mine) astra j.

I have managed to connect everything on my workbench with external power supply and almost everything works. Just waiting for Maps sd card to verify that nav works as well.

My questions to you all are...
1/ when i install it into the car with the wiring modified as necessary, Will it require coding? (even though it worked on the bench)
2/ Any advice on aftermarket Aerials for the radio and dab. (thus avoiding replacing rear screen). Existing Aerial be replaced by Sharkfin for gps.

Thanks in advance

come on guys ..nobody has any suggestions to my post?

I'm a tad confused by your post as the CD600 doesn't have Navi on it, it's just a cd400 with colour screen.

Do you mean navi600? It could very well come up as in theft protection mode in your car who knows your only find out when you fit it, I've had many units work fine on the bench which go into theft protection mode when fitted in the car.

As to your aerial question I can recommend the best one that will give you DAB+, AM/FM & GPS shark fin I've one on my car for ages and it's never let down don't be annoyed with the price.

Thank you very much for your response Rusty...
Sorry, I meant navi600...
Yes, I had to sit down when I clicked that link... ??
So, when I install it and it does triggers the theft protection can it be re-coded?
Thanks again

Yes the aerial is expensive but pay once and save money I went through many cheaper options before trying the one I linked too.

Yes it can be unlocked no problems but you'd need someone who knows what they are doing (no Vauxhall).

Rusty, I really do appreciate your input.. Yes, I think I might go that route with the aerial. Although I can get my hands on the amplifier and rear screen from where I obtained other bits.
Firstly, I am going to install everything into the car and then take it next step.
Going back to coding the unit to the car.. is there a tutorial for this?
What software and hardware needed?
I am quite familiar with coding and diagnostics on bmw, and some Mercedes...

For coding you need GM MDI not cheap and then you have to pay to sign up to TIS2WEB, then pay again just to request the VCI and then pay the VCI fee then pay again to program it.

TBH they amount it would cost you just to program the radio you'd be better coming to me or someone else with the gear already and the know how to bypass VCI.

Thanks Rusty, Would you need the car there or just the head unit?
I am based in the East Midlands.
If it's the head unit only then please pm me with the costs.
Cheers

Unfortunately with the 600/900 it has to be the full car.
