Default Mk6 DVD Satnav in Mk5 GTI

Hi Guys,

I have recently put a deposit down on a golf GTI Edition 30 and pick it up tomorrow! Quite excited about it to say the least!!

One thing it doesnt have which I am looking to retro-fit is the DVD satnav (think it brightens up the cabin somewhat as well as being quite useful!)

I have never done this with a VW before so need some advice, I have found a MK6 DVD satnav unit on eBay - could anyone tell me if this will fit into the mk5 dash as a straight swap, is there particular parts required or is it just a no-go and I should be looking for a mk5 unit?

EDIT: Also if it is the mk5 Unit i need to look for, do I need anything special for it to fit in?

Any help appreciated!

Yeah, it just drops in. Just make sure it comes with the GPS antenna.

Might be better looking for the HDD based one instead of the DVD one though as the HDD one is touch screen.

I am just about to list one of these on the bay. Have latest mdi module, bt unit and can bus upgrade also.

Remember that you need a certain can bus module to avoid battery drain problems in the mk5
