Hi all

Sorry if this has been covered already, and if so, happy to be pointed in the right direction. I'm basically thinking of replacing the Connect unit in my 2011 1.5 dci Tekna. Current unit works fine. I just looked around at other units with a much bigger touch screen, possibly Android device.
Reason for the post is more for advice; the reason I wanted the Tekna (wife had different check list) was the Bose speakers. I love listening to music. But how would these behave and sound connected to a different unit? I assumed at first "better" as was going to replace the standard unit but then again maybe not. Plus we have SatNav and rear view camera - again, do these still work (assume yes just connect via different system).
I don't want to fix what isn't broken, but maybe just make it more enjoyable/fun to use?? Anyone already done this would love to hear of pros and cons...

Picture of current unit:



Thanks all

your radio pin No 1 from connector is for activate the Bose system.
this is a output 12V. signal.
I am not sure that another unit can work. you have to create a connection to pin 1.
in the aftermarket adroid  20 pins plug and play connector is pin 1 empty.
you can use the radio ACC to pin 1.

for satnav did you get much better and update navi. (free downloads)LOL
for use the factory rear camera, see my picture


I can search for other information about the connectors.
your system is not different then the other nissan connect systems.
it is only pin1. 

regards,
Arno

I can create the rear back camera connector , so you can use this.
pm please.

Thanks for the link. Did you get an android based head unit and are they any good?

I'm looking at something like this:

Thanks

advise, look at witson.com for a android version.
these units are plug and play for Nissan.  
they can arrange it with low or free import tax.

noted, this screensize is 1024x600.
search for a android navigation program what support this size.

ps, check first what kind of connectors your ebay seller deliver with this unit.

regards,
Arno
