I've been contemplating buying an "F" revison (8E0) unit, and then switching the faceplate from my current "P" unit, so that it will fit in my car correctly. Is this possible? How hard would it be? And, are there any internal hardware differences between the units that would keep it from working? Thanks.

IIRC only 1 person has reported being able to change the faceplate. It's not an easy job!

Removing the faceplate isn't hard job, and for sure possible. Looks and sounds difficult, but it isn't:

The procedure for removing the face plate is the following (in order):

1. turn the unit on, and place the screen in the 'open' position (screen flat). Keep it this way (so don't let it close it, turn the power off with screen flat)

2. remove the 3 black screws under the display. Yes, they are damn tight...Use a good screwdriver with the right fit. Don't use the small watchmaker screwdrivers. You can't get enough grip with these ones. Hold the screen when you remove the last screw

3. Take the screen carefully out of the rails. Release the flatcable connecter from your screen to the RNS-E. The screen is loose now.

4. remove the screws on the left and right side of the RNS-E (4 big screws on each side). Also remove the 2 smaller screws of the faceplate on the underside of the RNS-E

5. remove the plate on top of the RNS-E (the one with the RNS-E type# on it)

6. disconnect the flat cable (the one from the faceplate to the RNS-E) carefully

7. release/fold out the 2 clamps on the left and right side of the RNS-E

8. Take the faceplate off

To fix the plate: follow the procedure in reverse order.

Partnumber c5 faceplate?

Hello

As described in this thread:
http://www.navplus.us/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1288

I would very much like to make the same faceplate change. I believe this will give me the latest possible hardware version (hw70), and maybe more realistic dreams about SDS.

I guess future software updates on the hw70.

When you do the faceplate change will, you share the part numbers concerning the c5 faceplate.
Even better if anyone else knows them and wants to share the part number?
