Default Add Navigation, Virtual Cockpit & MMI

hello - I ama first time Audi user. I bought a 2018 Q5 PremiumPlus without the Nav package. After some use, I am regretting that decision. I found parts from a 2018 SQ5 from salvage. Parts look in great condition. What I am not sure of and need help with is:
1. Do I need any other hardware besides Virtual Cockpit and MMI?
2. Where are the Navigation software stored - in the Display Unit? If so, I will need to replace this unit as well?
3. I have the Audi Connect functionality already, do I need Connect Prime and Plus to get google earth? Any hardware needed for that?
4. Will Audi dealers install these units for me?

Thanks for all information.

You can not "retrofit" these items. While in theory you could physically add all of the parts (you would need all sorts of new wiring, hard drive, antenna, etc) you would need software that is proprietary to you car that only Audi has, and there is no way a dealer is going to do this for you. It would void your warranty on many component even if it was done. It would be far cheaper to trade in your car. Sorry, but it just doesn't work to swap in a few parts and make it all work.
