Frequently Asked Questions

1. Will I lose any of my factory features?

With Unavi, you lose ZERO features*. Unlike other in-dash navigation system, Unavi retains the factory radio in the dash, including steering wheel controls, therefore, retaining all features the vehicle is equipped with from the factory (BlueLink™, UVO™, iPod/iPhone™, OnStar™, Bluetooth™, Sirius XM™, etc.)  Even more, all of our units have the ability to revert your vehicle back to stock** with no problem, and it DOES NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY.

*  Unavi cannot add factory features if your vehicle was not equipped to begin with, i.e., adding Bluetooth/LDSA features

**Original dash pieces and/or radio components will be required to return back to stock.

2. Where can I get the Unavi system installed?

Unavi has a vast network of dealers across the nation to take care of your sales and installation needs. To locate a dealer near you, please click on our Dealer Locator.

DIY* (Do-It-Yourself) installation is possible as our install manuals are very detailed and easy to understand. However, we would always advise professional installation to retain the 3-year warranty. All DIY installs come with a 1-year warranty;

*Many people choose do-it-yourself installation; however, installing mobile electronic devices without professional help can lead to costly repairs and, in some cases, personal injury.  Unavi is not responsible for unit damage, vehicle damage, or injury should you decide to install without professional help.

3. What are the warranty terms?

You will receive a 3-year warranty if our system is professionally installed by one of our approved dealers. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) installs receive one year warranty on parts only.

Unavi system will NOT void your vehicle’s factory warranty. Accessories added to your car cannot void the warranty (refer to the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act). However, if the install causes a malfunction in that circuit, then they can force you to cover the cost of repair. We always advise our customers to contact us regarding any issues prior to taking the vehicle back to the dealership to determine what is at fault in the case of a malfunction.
