    To conclude my own quest last year: I won't upgrade the NAV to an aftermarket solution (Android based or other) nor to the latest version available from Opel as discussed here. I am not that dependent on navigation assistance anyways, and what I need has been fine so far except for missing out on a few infrastructure changes - a basic rule is to keep reading signs anyways. Having a smartphone with Google Maps as backup is just fine.

    I have an after-market infotainment system on my 2011 9-5 Aero and I'm looking around in the used market to buy a second-hand screen/radio/navigation unit to return it to OEM. The unit is nice and has quite a few functions including a back-up camera, but looks a bit cheesy and of course, doesn't turn off with Night Panel.

    Anyone with any tips on what to look for/be wary of in a used unit or whether to do it at all (I've heard some of the oem units can just stop working)?

    I've watched the YouTube install of an android unit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtoV...&index=12&t=2s), I'm assuming that returning it to OEM will just be the reverse.
    (If the OEM turns out to be too buggy, there are some really nice android units I've found (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3295...99c144583632-1) that have what looks like most of the functionality of the original and more.)
