Re: 2008 X-Trail Stereo Wiring Loom


Hi

Finally got around to re-fitting the unit albeit without steering column controls as yet on Fri night - then went camping (1st trip with my 4 month old kid).

Amendment to previous post - NB I don't think that there is an earth on the stereo loom. I have earthed mine to the mounting screws and all works well. Sounds like I am not the first to have blown the centre lighting console fuse by incorrectly identifiying the earth.

Unit works well for an ebay cheapie. I have fitted a 3.5mm phono jack in the flip lid container to allow me to connect my Creative mp3 player.
The uit slotted in to the existing mounts. I did however have to add a couple of rubber stops to limit the closing of the door on the storage unit directly below to prevent it jamming against the screen on the unit and preventing the screen folding down when "Ejecting".
Will post more when the rear view camera is fitted. Does anyone have advice on reverse warning sensor systems - whilst I am running wires from back to front?

Here are the photos:-

Things I know now, I wish I had known then:-
- Wiring loom config
- Protect my gear stick with a towel (scratched mine a bit)

Thanks again for all the help.

Rick

That looks awesome ... still wondering what sort of brand that is. I'm still in the market for that sort of setup for my Exy. Was it expensive ? I'm looking at the one priced around $650AUD but its hard to get any feedback on the device since its a Chinese company with no English web based information. Yours sits nice in the dash. Well done.

Re: 2008 X-Trail Stereo Wiring Loom


Hi
Unit was $700 (Aussie) delivered from ebay including a decent wide angle IR rear view camera. The company operates out of Sydney (allegedly) - don't know if I am allowed to mention the name of the shop on these forums. The unit, packaging and documentation have no brand name on them. The box is labelled "Car Audio"!

When I bought it - it was the the only double DIN GPS/Stereo/DVD/TV/rear view camera which had the facility to use steering column controls whcih was dispatched from an "Australian" company.

All seems good so far apart from DVDs do not play in colour which is wierd as the GPS/Radio/Bluetooth screens all appear in glorious colour. Not too much of an issue and to be honest I haven't explored all the menus so it may be operator error! Even if this is a permenant "fault" it wouldn't bother me too much. I didn't buy an x-trail to watch DVDs!
I have tested the rear view camera bu not fitted it as yet - also works in colour.

Will wait to see how long it lasts.....longevity seems to be the major issue with the Chinese imports.

Now which forum do I post in to ask about removing the trim from the rear hatch so I can fit the rear view camera?

Cheers
Rick

The colour thing could be either a PAL/NTSC setting or a DVD-R/+R compatability.
Usually playing NTSC DVD's on a PAL system will show up B&W

Hi Rick,

You can use the General Section for that and when someone responds (hopefully with pics). I can link it to the DIY Guides section.

Good call Kev

Went into the systems settings (not all covered in the manual) and set it to NTSC. Now all plays perfectly i.e. DVDs and .xvid files from the SD card slot. - Quite a handy feature as it recognises SDHC cards and so is easy to load mp3 files onto.

Will try the General Section for advice on the trim removal. Can't wait for the Gregory/Hanes manual to be released.

Thanks guys
Rick

Ah so I should have had the camera at the reay when I pulled the rear trim off when fitting the extra tailgate lights.....

I have just upgraded my Adobe Reader and navigating the manual seems a lot easier.
