New Owner - Key FOB start and NAV questions
New 2013 Captiva LTZ owner.. I have a few questions someone may be able to answer.
I bought the car used (11,000 miles) from a dealer and it came with the basic 2 button with panic remotes. Upon scrolling through the ,menu on the dash, I saw a setting for 'remote start'. If I buy a modern Chevy 3 remote with the remote start button. will it work without buying anything else for the captiva (like some type of module)?
Also Im looking for a factory looking in dash NAV unit to replace the factory radio. I saw a few on ebay from Hong Kong, that look like they were made for the Captiva. Has anyone here had any real-world experience with the quality of these.. or is there some other styles to recommend? Not looking for a pioneer or kenwood, but a factory looking replacement.
It particular - Im looking at this one . but not looking to install the 'extras' that this comes with. Basically just NAV, radio/mp3, and blutooth, maybe tie in the factory rear camera if it can be done easily.
Looking forward to exploring this forum... Looks like it can be a great place to be.

Factory Remote Start, but I'm not sure, if the same holds True for your 2013" Captiva??.....I would say check your Glove Box to see if you have this RPO Code AP8....
Here's what the Service Parts I.D. Tag(White Sticker) looks likeEDIT:.....Did some looking around and the RPO Code for the Factory Remote Start for a 2013" Captiva, is RPO Code "BTV" Remote Vehicle Starter System, James this is the Code you would be looking for the Glove Box.

As far as that nav is concerned, your in for one heck of a project, re-routing the air vents behind your dash, you will also need a lot more parts to get that to work.
personally, I would just try to deal with an aftermarket nav like a pioneer or what not. less work, less hastle, less things to go awry.2012 Chevy Captiva Sport LT V6 (The Spanish Prison)
