Adding factory Nav to CC

I've got a 2012 F550 CC XL on its way. It has every available XL option but not factory nav. It has sync and the steering wheel controls. Can I install a factory nav radio in this truck? If so, what if anything besides the unit will I need? I'd love to add a backup camera on this as it will have a 16' box so rear visability will be limited.
Thanks

I would suggest instead of trying to install a factory navigation system, that you go with one of these instead. Kenwood - DNX7190HD

With this unit you can also add a iDatalink module which integrates your Sync with the head unit. You can also add a backup camera to this unit. This would probably be much simpler and cheaper than buying a factory navigation system.

If you're set on getting a factory navigation system, the guy mentioned in this thread might be able to help you out. Added navigation thanks to a fellow member

I understand the cost of a factory uint is high and the Kenwood units are very good. BUT if I had a factory head unit from a 2011, would it fit and operate in the 2012 CC? Truck currently has the AM/FM single CD radio, sync, and steering wheel controls.

It would fit, however there maybe differences in the wiring, that's why I suggested trying to contact that guy I mentioned before, he sounds like an expert when it comes to up-grading to a factory Nav system

Like I said in the thread linked to get ahold of sredmyer it will save you a lot of trouble. I'm pretty sure you can add nav to an xl. I don't remember what all the parts are he sent me but its more then just the radio, you need an amp and a couple harnesses also to get it all working and the radios are programmed depending on what options you have so you might get lucky and you might not. For what I paid for everything I needed, instructions, and help with a few questions the cost was actually cheaper or the same as I've seen people paying on ebay for just the head unit.

As far as factory vs aftermarket I'm partial to the factory system. I like how its all integrated and I like the way sync works. Also I had looked at a kenwood system and by the time I bought the head unit and all the modules to integrate the steering wheel controls and sync the cost was the same or higher.

echo the comment about Steve Redmeyer.

He helped me put 2010 NAV in my truck.
