OK, so i bought a 2011 Sonata GLS. Bought the base model GLS because its the only trim that comes in the 6 speed manual transmission. My audi A4 is automatic so i wanted something manual. But the GLS doesn't come with any options. Not even available. I didn't like the leather in the Limited anyway. It was too firm. I would have liked to have Navigation and wish it had it now. Does anyone know if i can put Navigation in my GLS and what parts i would need. Any help would be great!

Thanks in advance

If the wiring harness is the same for Nav and non-nav vehicles it may be possible. Buying all the factory parts (including new dash bezel) is going to be very expensive, figure probably in the neighborhood of $4-5k.

Your best bet really is to pick up a Tom-Tom or Garmin and use that. Second option would be to install an aftermarket head unit.

Even if you can find the OEM headunit on ebay, you still need to check and make it's compatible with the wiring harness in your car. You might be able to find out from the dealership parts department what works and what doesn't, but sometimes they aren't very helpful.
