Should I Add an O.E.M. Navigation System to My Car?

4 Reasons to Install Factory Navigation in Your Vehicle

Whether you are just thinking about it or have already decided to go for a full multimedia system – including navigation software – for your vehicle, chances are you may be a little disoriented as to which one is the best choice, given the numerous aftermarket options available out there.

So, we want to help you out here. If you are the type that appreciates the integrated look and wants the navigation functionality to work everywhere without suffering from signal coverage gaps, then you can pretty much see for yourself why you should pick an O.E.M. factory navigation system.

Nevertheless, if you are still not convinced, here are four more reasons that Edmunds.com says you need to take into consideration:

Integration

Are you looking for a clean, high-tech, integrated look besides the functionality of the system? Do you want an easy to see and large enough touchscreen conveniently placed on your dashboard? Complete and genuine integration can only be achieved through factory designed systems.

Warranty

Original factory navigation systems are made by the vehicle’s manufacturer; therefore, they don’t affect the vehicle’s warranty and are covered by it.

Theft-Resistant

Unlike portable navigation systems and cell phones that are left inside a parked car, factory navigations are virtually theft-proof. It will take a considerably longer amount of time for a thief to try to steal it, in contrast to a portable unit that is just hanging from the windshield.

Resale Value

An original integrated multimedia system adds to your car’s appeal when the time to sell comes, improving your chances of getting a better deal than if it just has the base trim radio system.
