Hi all, I took a leap of faith and bought a connect system from eBay, described as no returns and not sure if in working order! It does! I managed to install it easily enough using Craigs guide.
Just one thing, there are no maps on it? Is that how it comes, so you have to purchase a sd card and load that onto the unit. Or keep the sd card in there permanently?
 
I didn't tell the wife I was getting it, so I am a bit disappointed it won't work perfectly first time she see's it. All the buttons on the steering wheel work.
I bought:
Connect(30 model) with a code for £99
A FAKRA gps arial for 6.50
the mic path cable £13
The USB cable and port can wait until next month

You keep the SD  card in it permantly so if there isnt one you need to buy one. Dont go to Nissan there are usually new ones available on ebay for a lot less- like below

After reading the 7 pages of this thread I'm ready to install my connect, I know my tel/source buttons will be reversed but I have one question,,,

Someone previously asked for a guide on removing the dash panel to get at the 6cd head unit.... Unfortunately that picture isn't available now.
Can you put it back on here so I can see it? I think I have to prise the plastic from bottom of unit, below the 12v socket? Just wNt to be sure before I start.

Paul.

Hi, got my connect unit from gemma off the forum today.
SO easy to plug in!
All working well but....

airbag light is flashing.

I didn't move or adjust any other wires apart from removing the original Nissan connect 6cd unit and fitting the Nissan connect sat nav unit..

any one else come across this problem?

any advice appreciated..
paul

My nissan connect fitted and all working now.
Great guide thanks took me 30 mins from start to finish

Any reason why my iPhone 5 doesn't charge when connected to usb?
Doesn't charge and doesn't show up on the unit at all

There is voltage from the cable ok as I've tested it
Any ideas?

I can confirm my Ipad on iOS 7 works fine in car.. 
Downgrading Iphone 5 from iOS 8 beta back to iOS 7, that should do the trick.

Glad to be a guinea pig tester for you all.. Do not use iOS 8 until its officially out ;)

Thanks Gemma, all fitted and working 100%. Hope the postage fee covered the rolls and rolls of parcel tape you used to safely wrap it up ;) Very well packaged. 
Fitted it on my lunch break today in about 25 minutes.

Just tested Iphone 5 running iOS 7, all perfect.

Haha; strictly speaking the tape was acquired from the removal men when I moved house at the end of last year. Both the parcel tape and the fragile tape. Winner! LOL

This might be a daft question ...

Have got my eye on a Connect for the other halfs Tekna QQ to replace the 6cd player ... as she has sensors on her QQ will they still work ? (e.g. sound).

I know it brings up the blue screen due to lack of camera but will she still be able to use them

Hi..    Whilst I'm not at all happy with the lack of MP3 facility in my 09 Acenta 1.5 I don't want (or need to go to all the expense of) a Connect upgrade.  Can anyone recommend a better solution?

I know this is an old thread but this may be a solution to an age old question. The USB AUX cable that costs ridiculous money from Nissan has been made and described on this website. It is in Russian but there are lots of photos that make it quite obvious what to do.

Hey there, any suggestion to replace the radio in the QQ 2009 for one with the BT option for listening music (not only calls) ? Confused
