Possible to replace navigation with standard climate controls?

I recently picked up an Ď02 TL-P with navigation, but the navigation screen is ruined. It looks like peeling plastic behind the screen. Since the system is outdated anyway, is it possible just to take out the screen and install the basic climate controls? I already have all the parts needed from the junkyard.

I looked at this for my 2001. My Navi works but it's not worth updating. I looked at the Non-Navi complete dash and it seems plug and play as long as you have the right switches. You would also need the non-Navi storage tray to fill the gap where the current climate control dash is located.

Post back with before and after pics!

I'm also replacing the factory radio with a double-din I removed from my old CL-S, so the voice options won't wok with my new headunit.

Hey CL-Slick, let me know how that goes! I'm thinking of going the other way around, '99 TL-P non-NAVI to NAVI for that sweet screenspace.
You said the AC control board has the same connectors in both the NAVI and non-NAVI models?

Honestly I'm down. I can't give you the CD tray thing because mine has switches installed in it and I'm sure you don't it, but the bezel and climate controls I'm more than down to pull out and shop.

I know people have gone non-nav to nag, but I’ve never seen anyone go the route I want. I have all of the parts for the swap already, I’m just waiting until my tranny swap is done and the car is running right before I start on the interior projects. I’ve also got type-s black wood to go in after it’s all done. As cheap as the used screen is I’m tempted just to throw one of those in there.

I had the same problem with my navi screen.

I knew I wanted to keep my screen though. So....

I started looking for the best place to find it for the least amount possible.

Long story short:
  1. Downloaded the LKQ pick your part app
  2. Configured the garage portion of the app to include the 99-03 Acura TL with push notifications set to ON when a car shows up in the nearby yards
  3. Picked up a navi screen for about $25
Of course the condition of parts varies, but with a little patience I definitely found what i was looking for and was able to do it relatively inexpensive.
