CX-5 Sat Nav broken and Mazda dealer wants £1200 to fix

Hi, the sat nav in my 2015 CX-5 is broken. Will not turn on, no radio or any other functions. I have taken it to the main dealer and they say the CMU (or something) is dead (part number BAAR 669 C0) and it needs a new one at a cost of £1200. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking about replacing the entire unit with an aftermarket android auto type thing that would cost around £300 if I replace it myself. What are people's thoughts?

"Stuff" happens.
A working unit from a salvage yard would be the simplest install, 2013 - 2015. You must have the Blose system. It is $1226 here.

Search around as those cars are very popular in Europe so there must be a lot. Check out ebay uk and ebay de as well. Verify the exact part/model number.
I dont recall if it needs reprogramming to the car though but have some vague memory it doesnt.

Just to be sure, try holding down the BACK, MUTE, and NAV buttons together at the same time to do a soft reset.

You never know 'til you try. Dealer service departments aren't always anxious to "fix" issues when they can charge big to replace parts instead.
