    You'll need the security code for the new unit and it may need to be proxi-aligned (I'm not too sure).
    Physically, it's a straight swap though.
    Maybe someone else can answer if there's an external GPS receiver required to use the navigation.

    It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt!

    Hi

    Dd you have any success with swapping out the 5 inch unit for the 7 inch - I am looking to do the same but have encountered a few blind alleys - i have the 7 inch unit ready to go in but cant get a definitive response from Abarth in regards to what else need to be done (proxy alignment to body control unit).

    Thanks
