Swapping a Honda NAVI unit from an Accord EX into an Accord LX, SE, or VP isn't a good idea. The head unit can physically fit but there are so many other features that the different models do not share that it would require also swapping a ton of hardware in addition to the NAVI head unit. Controls such as A/C and radio are built into the NAVI unit and are specifc to different trim levels. For example, EX models with NAVI have dual climate controls so that the driver and passenger can each set their own temperature. The SE model does not have this. If you put the dual zone NAVI unit into an SE, the climate controls will not be compatible. Additionally, other features that the NAVI unit has that are not in an SE trim level: solar sensing temperature adjustment with a sunlight sensor on the upper dashboard, auto climate control with a temperature sensor behind the steering wheel, upper LCD display for climate and radio controls, voice microphone located in the headliner, voice control buttons on the steering wheel, XM tuning, XM antenna including the satellite antenna which is mounted on the roof and if NAVI functions are desired there's the NAVI antenna, DVD ROM player and various hook ups for vehicle speed sensing and other metrics. This swap has been done into a non-NAVI *EX-L* but it is costly and time consuming and not "plug and play" at all. You can read about others’ experiences with swapping in OEM NAVI as well as using after market NAVI systems by searching for Honda Accord forums on the Internet. My favorite sites are and You'll find that a popular, cost effective and more practical way to add NAVI is to use an aftermarket system and mount the screen in the cubby below the radio controls. Aftermarket systems offer features such as full text display for CD, XM, and MP3 as well as navigation options and even allow you to play DVDs.
