Hello guys, I am new to this forum and also new to owning a Citroen. I hope I can find some answers here.

I have a 2014 Grand C4 Picasso, the SMEG Version of my system is 5.1.F.R4. The current system does not have GPS/SATNAV, so I was wondering if I could have the entire physical SMEG replaced with a newer version that does have SATNAV. and if so, where could I have it done? Any ideas would be absolutely welcomed. Thank you all in advance.

You could do, but you'd need to replace the full unit and upper screen, then they'd need to be paired with your car.

To be honest, it's going to be a lot cheaper for you to get a decent satnav and clip onto your dashboard.
The satnav on the Citroen is very poor and I personally never use it. I always use the navigation on my mobile phone - which gets constant traffic updates from Google Maps.

I have to agree. It will get you to your destination but not necessary via the fastest or shortest route,

You changed a lot of stuff ? And the display has a better resolution & works better?

Yes and No some things are better and some are not i.e. when you list the radio stations there is too much red and not easy to see the name of the station. The same with the Pre-set stations unless they have the station logo very hard to see. The google maps work fine but find the Tunein radio stations seem to buffer a lot I will try Tunein via Bluetooth as I did on my old system and see if its the phone or the unit. The main disappointment is my Sygic maps won't work unless I get a MirrorLink phone
