That is not going to be a cheap thing to do, at least not with any factory stuff. That would likely require installation of module(s) in the vehicle, wiring, updates to the command/audio unit, etc.

Not trying to discourage you from it if it's something you really want but if you need additional nav instead of your phone you should probably just buy a standalone GPS. Will be way cheaper.

I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong about that though.

Like @sp3ak it probably could be done but most likely you would have to upgrade the infotainment center, probably some wiring, get antenna for GPS, and who knows what else. The OEM navigation is by Garmin (w/five years of free updates only updated annually) which is good, however with Apple Car Play/Android Auto you get free updates. Even though I have the OEM navigation on my car I prefer using Android Auto w/Waze and/or Google Maps. Waze has user input and will provide you with information such as accidents, road hazards, construction, law enforcement, congested traffic, etc. When using Google Maps through Android Auto it will show me address/locations of contacts in my phone on the map, other points of interest (gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores, parks, gyms, etc., etc.). Also both of these map sets (Waze/Google) are updated more frequently than Garmin's once a year, and unlike Garmin's updates you will never have to pay for them.
