Default adding a new audio system to a CT ?

Hi so i have done some google searching and the onlyt hing i have found is back in 2011 someone took their CT to a custom shop and had navigation double dinn aftermarket added to their car
but not found anything else at all.
i am wondering have they come up with anyting has anyone any info on any systems that have been made to fit in the CT ? i am thinkign about a CT but a few that i like i have seen dont have factoyr navigation and thats a deal breaker for me i need a built in navigation system
if no one has why is that ? is it becuase there just is not enough depth in the dash area where the factory radio is ?

The navigation in the CT is a dinosaur from the 1950s. why do you need to have it? It's a worse foundation for a custom system because it has an external amp with filtered signals. you'd have to spend some serious coin and time rigging something up.

the space where the radio goes is awkward and without fabricating something totally custom, anything you stuff in there won't look right and will be awkward to access. the CT isn't too popular of a car to begin with so you won't find many who have went totally custom

so the nav doesn't match quality of the other same year vehciles like the 2014 ES and 2015 RX and NX that i have driven have decent navigations units so a 2015 ct would not have a quality navigation ?

i just don't use phone navigation i wont put anything in the window other than the rearview mirror i drive in places where its insane but yes they will pull you over for having a gps or phone mount in your window and ticket you. and i have had those handheld units before and more often a car i have owned has been broken into to have the garmin window unit stollen but no one has ever broken into my cars with navigation oem so for me its a must have feature i wont live withou because i drive 50k a year at the least and i use the GPS all the time
