Also explained it had since been corrected by Nissan on all cars of the same model made after, that had the appropriate stereo head unit installed to accommodate satellite radio tuners. The other option is you can probably find the dash trim from a vehicle with the nav package which in a 2007+ Altima at least is a standard double din head unit.
You will also need a to feed an audio signal from your factory radio to your aftermarket amplifier. W Quote from protegechris : I can confirm that there most likely is not an input on the rear. Or could it be made to fit? I need an Aux in like I have for my other car which I cannot take because of bad mileage Would the radio from your other car, fit into this one?

One thing I will say that cars with Bose stereos often have amplifiers elsewhere in the car and this often causes problems when replacing the stock headunit with an aftermarket one. Currently I play audio through a cassette adapter but I'd much rather have an aux input for minimum quality loss. Simply don't have the talent to do it. The other location is on the headunit itself. I'd probably hit up the automotive services section of craigslist and find a local audio guy to do it. Right now as I am sending you this email, I can hear that sound again.
Warning - may exclude some relevant results. Or is this a reasonable cost for the install? I want to retain the factory head unit, but I need an input for a mp3 player not ipod. This leads me to believe that the signal would likely be normal audio. This is also a very expensive solution. So, does it sound ok to you now, the way it is? Then again, do you have the Nav?? I have a 2004 Altima with non Bose audio and I really really need an Aux input which the current head unit doesn't have. Lot's of things to consider.

There has to be something out there. Go to Best Buy and ask them how much the install will be. You will need a unlock code to get your radio working again. Does anyone make an input for this 8 pin, or will I have to make my own. Simply don't have the talent to do it.
Good luck with unlocking your radio. The tech had to un-mount the antenna leaving chunks of paint missing from my roof and I had since had to install an aftermarket portable satellite radio which always gives me static problems. Now it comes with the Posi-Tap for easy connection of the single wire termination. W You often need an antenna adapter and a faceplate adapter since the factory radio is a different shape and size than the replacement. I think the interface connector is located in the center console.
I know that on the new Infinitis that is where it is located. You cannot, however, have both extra sources connected at the same time as the auxiliary input cable included in this package.
