No it does not you have to have the gps navigation unit installed for it to work on the base model.Just curious to anyone who has a base challenger or chieftain: I know it doesn't include nav, however does it still do the Apple Carplay after the latest RC 2.0 update?
I have the base and added the aftermarket nav. Only $60 for them to enable the functions if you do all the work. You can have the fairing off in 10 minutes easy and the physical install takes 5 minutes. I don't regret saving $7k and picking a few items to add after the fact. The silver is my second favorite color after the white anyway so it wasn't that tough of a decision personally.I've had 3 roadmasters and I've never used their gps. I use Apple carplay in my vehicles and like the functionality of it. I also use headset audio most of the time.
I'm thinking out loud to myself that if I were to go for the challenger, the base would be the best value even if I had to upgrade ride command for carplay.
