Want to put a TOM TOM sat nav from a CLIO MK3 into my I-Music clio MK3 that does not have Sat nav



  Clio MK3 i-music
Hi there,

I have just brought a 2010 clio mk3 1.2 I-Music car for my son.
Was wondering if anyone could help me and let me know if it is possible to fit a SAT NAV - TOM TOM from a clio MK3 into the vehicle and will it work?

Any help would be super. This is my current set up on the picture

You'll need the loom and associated gubbins to retrofit the satnav unit. Unless you pull it all out yourself or know all the bits are there, it's a pointless and expensive exercise.

Dashboard out, dash/interior wiring loom replaced, sat nav Ariel ran is all required as far as I know. And at that it's not a very good setup anyway!

You would be far better off replacing the standard stereo for something with android auto or apple car play and using Waze/Google Maps for nav instead.

I’ve done this with my Clio R27. Basically I bought a Tom Tom satnav and satnav housing off someone on eBay. Basically it’s a retro fitted satnav in the housing.

The next plan would be to buy the Garmin 65 Alexa and modify the housing to hold it within. Also to flock the housing to tidy it up a bit.

I've just fitted a touch screen and other bits in the housing and have apple carplay/android auto. I've also made a version where my iPhone sits in the housing (with a wireless charger) and fills the front gap like it came out of the factory like that.

Some other people have fitted tablets (have a look on youtube).

This is the best direction to go in rather than fitting an outdated satnav.

ETA: If you still want to go ahead with your original plan, have a look at this link: https://clio197.net/threads/satnav.25757/

No change of wiring. Just the power supply cable ran down to the cigarette lighter and that’s it. I could piggy back it off the cig lighter fuse point in the dash with a hardwire kit. But I can’t be arsed at the moment. 😊
