Is a JBL with NAV compatible for my Tundra?

    I actually have 2 questions. I just bought a new 18 Tundra. My Tundra has the Entune with APPS button and only Scout NAV. I like dash NAV and have no use for Scout NAV. It's really a joke. Anyway I have the opportunity to buy a JBL with nav out of a 2017 1794 for a fair price. My questions are:
    1) Is the JBL deck a compatible unit for my truck?
    2) Does my truck already have a GPS antenna?

    No to either one of these questions would be a deal breaker. I really don't want to do any modifications other than pop the unit in.

    I was told that Tundra's that have Entune with the APPS button already have a GPS antenna installed.

    Any info on this would be great.
    Thank you

    The JBL system is a different head unit, with wiring to a JBL amp under the passenger seat with different speakers. It's not just a simple swap to change the head unit. Also, the JBL sound isn't that great. I have a 2018 with JBL premium sound, and wish I hadn't paid the extra money for it. Your money is better spent on a Tacotunes audio upgrade instead, or something else.

    As for navigation, I don't know if your truck has the GPS antenna. But my opinion is the Nav on the head unit isn't worth using, and I always just use navigation on my phone instead, so I don't think it's worth any money to try to get nav working on the Entune unit.

    I thought I might run into this issue. Was just looking to do a quick 20 minute swap. Got my answer and going to pass on it.
    Thank you.
