When I speak this is only based off my experience. Let me start by shouting out the big homie Edbwoy I’m surprised this man didn’t block me from all the question I ask lol.
I’m going to update this and add a video to my YouTube as well. I’m was so excited I did the install and didn’t take pictures or video. Sorry
Now I own a 2006 Infiniti M45 sport no Navi no entertainment pack no aux no satellite radio. Since November 1 I have add Navi OEM add satellite radio oem and added Bluetooth steaming audio music over oem device. Now how did I get all these parts? For one most of the devices in these cars are plug and play. If you find a car with Navi pull the dvd /screen/control panel and Antenna and your set. Now I’m luck bc I live near a pullapart.com and they have everything u need for cheap. I’m only going to focus on how to get groms audio Bluetooth device when you have nothing just like me.
This is the site put your car year make and model
I choose this device and as you can see it uses the satellite mode in you Infiniti to function. So if you don’t have satellite radio this will NOT work..... or will it? Again I found everything I needed from a junked car.
First step: if you have been blessed with a satellite radio already in the car skip this. If not you will need to buy the satellite module off eBay. Basically for us basic M45 people the radio button will only show Fm or am. For the people with more features it will flash xm fm am. Now here the good news NO WIRING needed for the xm module once you get it bc those lovey folks at Infiniti pre wired the car. So if your a basic b**** like me you too you have a pre wired connection in your truck for the module to sit and plug up.
This is the one that works. Now as soon as you plug this unit in the car it gives you access to XM stations. You can now tap your radio button and see xm/fm/am. congratulations you have made it to step two. Now take the module out of the car and return it. YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE SATELLITE MODULE UNIT. The streaming will not work bc it connected to a satellite radio that wants to play as well. It was only needed to tell the computer there is an satellite radio connected. So if your like me and paid $15 keep it as a trophy or sell it or return it.
Step 2: ok purchase this device. If you see this soon groms audio has $15 off purchase.
Now as you can see all of these steps ask that you have a satellite radio. Please remove the plastic from around the radio to continue. Be VERYYYYYYY carful. Thanks to Edbwoy he shows you how to take down you dash to get to the radio.
(I marked these to make it easy to understand. They are not marked when you buy them)
Now you going to unplug the Satellite radio and plug in the red in that port. Now take the satellite plug and put it into blue. Green will connect to the groms module. Left behind is a yellow And black wire. Yellow is the 12v wire for cont power. You need to tie that into a yellow power wire. I used the CD player yellow right below the satellite radio port. The black wire must be touching metal. I used a screw from the metal housing of the radio.
slam it all back together.
You should cycle through the radio fm am and stop at xm. Connect your phone to the Bluetooth “GROM CAR” now play a song
Conclusion: the sound quality is nice. Not complaints it connects fast. A must buy
