    If your 9-3 wasn't originally equipped with navigation, there is a good chance the necessary cabling is not there. As this is a fiber-optic system, it is probably not possible to easily add it by just hooking up some wires. You would also need the navigation head unit, programming to your car and so on.

    More information about the navigation system here: http://saabworld.net/showthread.php?...0680#post40680

    Hello

    i have a free fiber connector in the boot, but it's too short to be connected to the unit.
    i have the antenna on the roof, so i think my car is ready for the nav, no ?

    Cheers

    All 9-3 have the shark fin antenna on the roof so that doesn't necessarily mean it is wired for navigation. It is also used for the in-car phone and other communication services (like Onstar in the US).

    You would also need the actual navigation unit in the back (#5 in the picture) in addition to the ICM3 navigation head unit en DVD unit.
