Welcome to Just Answer My name is*****'m here to help you with your problem. You don't need the dealer to set it up. But you need the code for the DVD unit you replace, It will be different from the one you have now. If you give me the serial number off the DVD unit you buy (if they don't provide it for you) I can get your code. The only other thing you might run into is the version of the map data base in the new unit. If you get one with a disc post back the old and new disc versions and I will tell you how to update them . Other than that the unit will set itself up when you start it. Just be sure it is from the same year and model vehicle there are several types. You can also get your old unit repaired at this place then it will be plug and play . http://www.hitechserv.com/electronics-repair/oem-navigation-dvd-cd-changer-repair/65
