Re: Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

Hi Mark1984, In the list of items their looks to be a connector missing, a grey connector on the 2017 headunit that is not on the 2018/2019 headunit. Do you know what this is for and how that intergrates into the new plugs - see note 1? Capture.JPG Also, the ariel connection - see note 2, I'm assumi...

Re: Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

Thanks for all that Mark1984 I'm starting to collect all the items now. Some further questions on the finished install - Does everything actually work? And I can appreciate if you haven't tried or tested these. Hands free dialling with voice activation from the steering wheel? Telephone alerts to th...

Re: Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

Thanks mark1984, those answers have certainly cleared up some points. It’s looking more like a viable option. My main reason is a better telephone system, especially getting to hands free voice activated calling. Although CarPlay would be a huge bonus. Now the only issue is making up a good wiring h...

Re: Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

Hi all, I've been following this thread with interest but have noticed some omissions in recent discussions. I understand to do this work/fit the newer head unit you needs:- A headunit to match the country required - i.e right hand drive for UK A headunit to match the car specifiction - i.e a 'parki...

Re: 2017 Facelifted car, with SD card - downgrade headunit?

The d steering wheel has the phone buttons but pressing the call button just activates the phone system on the headunit. The voice activated dialling does not work and I can’t control or navigate the address book. All that is by the headunit. The steering wheel hang up phone button works, it hangs u...

Re: 2017 Facelifted car, with SD card - downgrade headunit?

I have a 2017, 67 ref facelifted N-Connecta. It has the D shape steering wheel and the SD card head unit. Newer years/model have the non SD head unit and more features. The older qashqai has the same looking SD card head unit but hands free dialling works better and I understand the voice dialling o...

2017 Facelifted car, with SD card - downgrade headunit?

A question. 2017 facelifted qashqai’s have the D shape steering wheel with extra buttons but no good hands free software or option. A thread exists for changing to the non-SD headunit but is very involved. Is it possible to downgrade, fitting an earlier headunit 2015/2016, would this have hands free...

Re: qashqai 2018 radio without navigation problem in replacement with nissan connect 3

Is this a 2018 model qashqai with the SD card sat nav unit being replaced by a 2018 non SD card unit? There is discussion in the ICE forum, an adapter cable has been made and others trying. That seems to have different connector units, 24 pin and 40 pin. Some of the wires need to be connected to mul...

Re: Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

After months of waiting for a firmware upgrade and frustration with no voice control or CarPlay I’m going to try this route. I’ve bought a 2019 head unit ready to fit. How do I get a patch cable from a 2017 sat nav head unit to a new 2019 head unit. Where do I look, anybody have the diagrams. What ...
