IMHO buy a aftermarket one and mount it. That way you can take it when you are done with the PT. I have a Magellen Roadmate and really like it.

I'm not sure if the radio size is different on the '07's, but on my '05, the Chrysler Navi is made to fit right in the radio slot. I'm a salesman and love this unit. It takes all the stress out of the job.

I have the 2005, 2006 and 2007 PT Cruiser Accessories brochures right in front of me and in the '07 book is a photo of the Navus Dash Mounted Navigation System. It sits right on the dash just about the analog clock.

An aftermarket GPS (Garmin, etc) will run you about 300$ or so at Staples. You can probably find a good deal if you shop around.

I bet the Dealer version costs a lot more.

Save your money... A GPS is only as good as its map set, and unless you can update the maps it will be annoyingly obsolete in a few years. Some GPS's let you attach them to a computer to install new maps (which you may have to buy every year or two, but it beats replacing the whole GPS).

Other must-haves: Voice directions. Repeat Button. Common Sense.

Happily since PT's do not ship with metalized windshields, a GPS on the dashboard can get a good view of the sky, no additional antenna is needed.

(Common Sense is critical when using a GPS. I once had a GPS tell me to drive the wrong way down a one-way street in front of a Police Station. What was worse was this early unit (an add-on to a notebook computer) sounded just like Stephen Hawking; it was not easy to ignore directions from the smartest man on the planet.)
