If your XM commander isn't so deep, then it will mount easily. Just use the mounting plates like I did so you don't have to hack anything up and you can return to stock easily.
Oy! Thanks for the reply!
Yeah... I noticed it was only two screws at the top that were holding it in. But it looks like the "bottom" part of the cubby had tabs that were "heat melted" together... in a sort of "permanent" install. -- They might of changed it in newer versions of the Versa since my '07 Versa was a "first run" vehicle out of the Mexico plant.
The XM Commander MT so-called "1-DIN plate" ended up being too small for the opening after I checked. So I kept the "cubby" there, drilled a hole in the back of it to route the wires for the XM Mini-Tuner which needs 12V (tapped off the ACC wire on the HU; it's in-line fused used too which was nice), the I/O port to the Commander's display which was routed down to right above the cup holders, and the XM antenna connector (which connects to the FM Direct Modulator, XM antenna, and the HU's antenna harness).
So the cubby now has a permanent hole in the back of it which... isn't too bad.
But now my XM Mini-Tuner is hidden in there and when I get home, I can just pull it out and put it into my Yamaha AVR receiver which has an XM Mini-Tuner Home Dock in it.
But I definitely saw which part you had to cut to get the HU to fit. LOL.
