The wire harness and connector wires will cost more than the unit.

Thank you for the URL... I was hoping it wasn't going to be a pain to install. I guess I just blew $200.

too bad you aren't near me. There is an S80 here with probably $250 worth of melbus cables in the salvage yard.

inteller, is there any way to verify if the car has prep cables? I have HU850, premium sound, dealer installed iPod cable that goes to left rear quarter panel...
I was thinking to add OEM GPS as well..

Papa_Kirlo, Below is the install link for V70 model. I've been told that there should be a prep cables. I am not 100% sure on this. I am currently deployed in Afganistan and will be working on the car when I get back. Please let me know what you encounter.

I decided to go different rad, picked up Garnin GPS and popup screen (OEM style) ... Thanks for the link though. Found another future project hehe
