Sorry to hijack the post, I am right in thinking you can change to a newer unit to add Apple CarPlay?

Thanks

Correct. It's a bit involved but completely possible

If anyone is still looking at doing this, i'm going to be selling everything i've got to get this done.
Nissan have swapped my car for a newer one that already has Carplay!

So, i'll be putting an ad up soon for all the bits (Headunit, Harness, Maplight Unit(mic)).

Only things you'd need are:
- To de-pin the FM/AM plug in the car to connect directly to the unit (or find the new connector).
- Get a split USB for powering an iPhone (or a hardwired method).
- Get a dealer to program the headunit to the car.

For anyone in search of the new style AM/FM connector, the part number is: GT13SHB-2/1S

Couldn't find it on Aliexpress but I would have thought Nissan could get hold of it.
