Adding Aftermarkert Nav to 2003 Infiniti M45

Postby Dicemoney6 » Tue Nov 08, 2011 11:48 pm

OK, I've been searching and seen a few things, I am looking to do this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqIoPfDH ... ideo_title . I see it can be done what I wanted to know is if anyone knows a good shop to go to in the NY,NJ,CT area to get this done?

That's going to be an intensive install, especially in an '03 since the tape deck is the brain of the audio system and it sits right where you want that screen.

Either way, it can be done but it's going to take some big $$.

After some years, I finally went and got it done. Should be finished tomorrow. I'll have some more pics of the finished install

Here are the rest of the pics, everything works great. Got the backup camera installed. There is a little space left right around the unit so it can open and close. I plan on getting the woodgrain piece modified so I can put it back and put the ashtray back as well but for now it will be like this. Very happy with the install. Got it done at Sound Sensations in Marrietta, GA

My double din sticks out a bit more than the video in the op because the original only had a 7 inch Garmin type screen navigation and not a full double din. There is not enough room to push it all the way back to make it look as perfect as the stock screen.

Nice, thanks for sharing.
Is your rear view camera the license plate frame type?
Also, do you mind telling us how much the install cost you?

Do you know how they wired everything? Im assuming the double din is connected to the tape deck where the cd changer would plug into? And do you know if they splice into the cd changer harness or is there an aftermarket harness. Where did they stash the tapedeck?

Im not sure but I dont think there is anything special about how they wired it. I think there is a thread with a write up about install an aftermarket radio. The only thing special they did was the extending of the wire and relocating the stock screen. The cd changer is disconnected and the tape player is in the glove box.
