Not hard, but will be real expensive. U can get ones that are unlocked so u can watch a dvd while the vehicle is in drive. Not very safe but if ur swapping it out y not. When i have an extra 500-700 dollars laying around i would like to do it.

Pretty sure you have to change the antenna assembly to a Nav ready one also.

From what I've researched oem is plug and play. I've talked to the ppl on that oem website before. I have uconnect and sat radio in my '12. For the uconnect to work you need their harness. It's expensive but worth it in the long run in my opinion. I had a flip screen in my old tiburon. Loved the navi. You can talk them down in prices too if you package it up. That's my next big present. But I'll be saving for a while again haha

I had the standard radio with UConnect and Sirius. Swapping to the 430N radio was simply a matter of prying off the dashboard pieces, unscrewing four screws, pulling the old radio out and swapping all the connectors over. If you purchase the 730N radio you do need some sort of UConnect kit to get everything installed. I purchased mine from OEM Auto Parts based on a recommendation from someone else here. Item looked brand new.

[QUOTE]If your 2011+ vehicle already has a Sirius antenna installed on the roof you:ll not need this antenna as all Sirius antennas that are factory installed 2011+ are considered "dual" Sirius with built-in GPS antenna reception.[QUOTE]

To the OP. Do you already have a Sirius radio? Factory Sirius radio antennas 2011 + are "nav ready". If you do not, you'll need to buy a Nav antenna also.
