Navi install?

Hi, I have a 2011 civic coupe. Was wondering is
It worth installing a oem navi system? And If I used the USB
Linked to my phone would it play videos off my iPhone? Hoping to
Get some advice to see if its worth the large amount of money :/

No, the OEM nav is not worth it at all in my opinion. And since you have an iPhone, I'd have to say pretty much any in-dash nav system is a waste, since using Apple Maps (ugh) or Google Maps (great) will still be much more accurate and better updated than an in dash nav that you have to pay for updates and change out the map card/dvd every couple years. And the factory system will not play videos.

I just ripped out my factory nav system in favor of a Pioneer AVH X2500BT, and I couldn't be happier. It was a bit of a pain, but well worth it to me. It plays videos, streams Pandora off my android phone, has a USB hookup for an iPhone (supports advanced app more, and may or may not support streaming your iPhone navigation to the in dash screen, I don't know though as I don't have an iPhone) or a usb mass storage device (flash stick), as well as a 3.5mm aux input, support for a wired remote (steering wheel controls), built in handsfree bluetooth, and was less than $300.

Just keep in mind that if you have the bluetooth handsfree on the factory system, you're probably going to need to use 2012 parts for most of the adapters and whatnot, since Metra and Scosche seem to think that all the 06-11 models have the same wiring, but Honda changed it up in 2009.

Thank you, I'm pretty sure I won't purchase a
Nav system anymore.
