I'm hoping that the combined knowledge and experience of all those Nissan "experts" on here can help this UK newbie with a problem that Nissan GB Customer Service technical helpdesk can't answer themselves! I've searched all the forums but all posts appear to cover US or Canadian models.

I have a 2006 UK RHD Pathfinder Aventura with 6CD player and integrated sat nav. I want my Nissan dealer to hardwire an interface so that I can use my ipod via the factory head unit. I have seen the attached link from Courtesy parts:

CourtesyParts :: Nissan iPod® Interface Kit - 2004 to 2006 Nissans without Satellite Radio

however, neither Nissan GB or Courtesy parts can tell me if this is compatible with the UK head unit.

My Nissan dealer keeps drawing a blank and can only suggest an FM modulator approach (but all appear to rely on ipod controls rather than Nissan head unit or steering wheel controls)

Does anyone have know of any possible solutions or products that would work?

Hi,

Nope - I can confirm that this one did NOT work for the UK Pathfinder. I have now spent ages talking with various ICE installers etc and, in fact, there is no known hardwired solution for the UK Clarion based unit in the Sat Nav equipped Pathfinder.

We can only use cheap FM transmitters (since splicing an FM modulator type unit into our antennae line invalidates manufacturer's warranty!). I've now tried 3 different FM transitters and none of them work brilliantly :mad:

Hrmph!

I also see in the latest UK Pathfinder brochure that there is an option on the new Acenta and Tekna models to add an "MP3 Connector" for 133 GBP.

Looking at the brochure, the sat nav & stereo seem to be the same as that in the Aventura. Any hope here of a Nissan dealer retro-fitting one perhaps???
