retro fit new head unit 2008 QX56

Postby alesko » Mon Aug 10, 2020 12:04 am

It's been a while since last post, but I'm having no luck searching for a new stereo head unit upgrade for 2008/2010 QX56. There is a unit from Metra that seems customized for my year and does retain all OEM functions but is Butt ugly and smaller screen than I wanted.

Has anyone did the conversion to Tesla style or tablet style upgrade or had any help?
Plan to keep the Q for another 5 years as its been very reliable and does what I need. Just want to upgrade electronics and bling it

Seems the environment control intergrations etc are holding back anyone wanting to tackle the engineering set up. Thanks! :gotme

It's a shame so many Infiniti and Nissan systems have integrated the environmental controls system into the audio and navigation systems. Makes it practically impossible to upgrade the head unit without losing other controls.
