    Yes it is possible.But the OEM unit costs too much.I'd rather go with an aftermarket unit.

    If you are looking at the OEM unit it costs about $700-$800 used and should be a simple bolt on.

    Go aftermarket.

    If you're looking for navigation, your best bet is a Kenwood unit, since they have Garmin integrated.

    An OEM Navi HU will swap in physically, but the wiring is significantly different -- you'll need an adapter harness. See this and also the installation instructions.

    If you can't find a used/salvaged OEM Navi for a low price, it's probably better to go aftermarket.
