t32 aftermarket gps headunit install


So with my xtrail being an st model it didn't come with a GPS headunit. I decided to go with a s160 unit from brash imports. http://brashimports.com.au/C353.htm

I tried a unit from dig options but got stuffed around. David brash from brash imports was extremely helpfull. He even sent images of the plugs to verify it would work. And was willing to give me contact numbers of people who had installed this unit previously if I had trouble.

The unit is completely plug and play with no Soldering required.
It is an android unit with more features than you can use and is basically a tablet headunit.
It has gps navigation, radio, cd/dvd player, mp3, Internet, Bluetooth, camera input ect.

So on to the installation.
Step 1.
Remove any cds from your old unit.
Image

Step 2. Pry off the panel on the left of the unit to access mounting screws.
These are fairly tight but I didn't have any clips snap. The clips seem fairly durable.
Image

Step 3. Pry off the air conditioning controll panel.
This just pulls out with a little bit of pressure and needs to be wriggled up and down to get it all the way out.
Image


Step 4. Pry off panel on right of unit.
This is the panel with the start button.

Step 5. Unscrew old headunit.
Undo the 4 Phillips head screws and the unit will pull straight out.
Two screws below the unit and one either side at the top.

Image

Step 6. Unplug old unit.
Image

Step 7. Transfer left and right side bracket to new unit.
From memory these are held on by 3 or 4 torque screws (star shape).
The unit is supplied with Phillips head screws so I changed mine over.

Step 8. Plug wiring harness in.
The unit is supplied with lots of harness'. I used all of them except for a USB extension.
Image
First plug the two main white plugs into the car harness.
Next plug the grey Arial plug into the car harness.
plug the black power plug into the unit
Plug the Arial into the unit
Next plug the two can bus cables together. (Match the wires up as there are three of these)
Image
Plug the black USB harness into the car and the unit.
Plug the reverse camera harness into the unit and connect the yellow rca (ignore the power wires and the blue signal wires as these connect through the can bus harness)
Plug the aux input harness into the car (two rca plugs on opposite end)
Plug aux rca harness into unit and connect white and red rca plugs to aux in.
Image

Pry air-con vent from dash enough to pass small end of gps plugged through. Then connect plug to unit
Image

Pass microphone plug through gap at top left of steering wheel column and run through to unit and plug in.

Step 9. Connect earth.
I just screwed the ring terminal to one of the bracket mounting screws on the side of the unit.

Step 10. Remove the two travel support screws from the top of the unit.

Step 11. Tape up wiring and screw unit into dash with 4 screws.
I just taped the bundle of wiring together to make things a little easier to put back in.
Image

Step 12. Clip panels back into place.
Just push on them and they will cipher back in.
Image

13. Power up unit and go into vehicle settings and turn the reverse camera on.
I also turned reverse trajectory on.
Image

14. Change time zone.
Click on android symbol down the bottom centre of home screen.
Then go into settings. Scroll down to find date and time and then turn on auto timezone.

15. Enjoy

Steering wheel controller work, and it shows up the radio station on the dash still too.

Wow it looks awesome! Well done and thanks for the heads up on where you bought it from. Did you have to buy an extra something to make the steering controls still work? I've been hesitant to replace mine as I love having my steering buttons!

Thanks. The first unit I tried from dig options didn't work with the steering controll. But I returned it and bought the one from brash imports. It came with everything ready to go nothing else was needed.
Steering wheel Controls work perfectly.

So the headunit is still going great.
I did only just workout how to change a setting on my wife's I phone to auto connect the Bluetooth.

1.Open the Settings app on your iOS device.
Scroll down and tap General.
Next tap Handoff & Suggested Apps.
Turn off Handoff.

Also here are a couple of pics of the phone book and dialer. It is Quite easy to use.

Thanks for that info - appreciated!!!
You mentioned you turned on the reverse camera and trajectory, I found the guide lines are missing completely from mine despite turning it on. Do you have the guide lines on yours?

Thanks again for your posts here - saved me some bucks!!

I just checked mine and the lines are missing from the reverse camera on mine also. I'm not phased but I'm sure a quick call to brash would be able to sort it.

Re: t32 aftermarket gps headunit install


I was wondering what they did about a GPS antenna. Good to know you have to install an external one.

And I was also wondering how so many different head units could interface to the steering wheel 'remote' controls and reversing / steering sensor...Doh, CANBUS!

Can anyone tell me with this unit,
1) Is it possible to load GPS 'tracks' to overlay on the map?
2) Are other maps like OzTopo able to be loaded?
3) does it have a 'breadcrumb' trail that can be saved to a log/track file?

I was looking at the Kenwood, but it can't do tracks.

Thx.

[edit] bit more research and found my own answers, for anyone else....

The unit uses OziExplorer Android software, in addition to the "Road Navigation" software (Which I assume is iGo?, being Android.)

Features:
"User tracks can be loaded"
"Logging of 'Track points' to file."

So it can do tracks and breadcrumb trails to a file, but not sure it can display and actual 'breadcrumb trail' on the screen that you can see where you've been. (Helpful for back-tracking' to your campsite.) Thinking that's it's just Android OziExplorer loaded, probably can. Hmm, more research... emoticon
