2008 LR2 After Market In-Dash Navigation

I've been scouring the web for nearly a year looking for the best option to upgrade my 2008 LR2 SE. I was sad that it didn't come with a Nav System, but that's what I get for buying it used.

Along the way I have seen some interesting suggestions, but none suited my fancy...that is, until one day several weeks ago I saw something posted on another forum (for another make/model car) about someone who installed a new Magellan Roadmate 1700 (the one with the 7" screen!) into the cubby hole on their dash board. Since they were modifying a Lexus, I wondered if the same might be possible with my Landy.

In my pondering, I was wandering around Costco this morning and saw that they were selling the Roadmate 1700 for around $180 (huge price cut) and so I jumped at the chance.

I'm pleased to say that it worked beautifully. Photos to follow with instructions.
