OK, I figured out that I need to upgrade the bluetooth module (located in the trunk) to get the bluetooth/phone comm working with this newer display headunit. The older base headunit used a dumbed down module that doesn't do the complex stuff like accessing your messages and phone book, dial by contact name, etc. The new bluetooth module is more sophisticated. I was able to grab one off of fleaBay for $44. I also checked the FSM for the newer module and noticed a slight mod needed to be done. So I soldered a couple jumpers and tested continuity. Hopefully this will get the bluetooth-phone steering wheel controls working again.

The kid is coming home today, so I'm going to install it and test it out. I'm also going to center console-mount the USB plug and add an XM antenna.

Keep you posted.

Sorry to interject, but I have the 17 Versa, and wanted to swap for the SV model stock stereo to get the BT audio streaming. Will that work?

I think BT audio streaming will only work with the Nissan OEM Navigation model radio.

Still trying to finish my OEM Radio swap in my 2014 Nissan Versa Note SV. Since installing the SL version Radio into my car I've enjoyed having the Navigation, streaming Bluetooth, Satellite radio but still have no backup camera or the handsfree feature from the steering wheels. I've ordered several wiring harness kits from Metra and Access. I also ordered a new rear camera from China to replace my original camera (it's made specifically for the Versa Note) It has the red and yellow RCA plugs on it. I'll be able to install the camera in the exact same place as the original camera.
I've also ordered the Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal OEM Steering wheel adapter along with the Axxess AX-NIS32SWC (Steering wheel control and backup camera retention harness), and the Axxess AX-NIS-ADDCAM1 for the back up camera. I purchased a few other adapters that in may not actually use. A OEM Radio wired adapter that plugs into the factory wiring harness.
Lastly a 70-7552 Wiring harness aftermarket stereo for Nissan (07-UP)
The most difficult part of this project has been trying to find a wiring schematic showing the pinout of the 32 pin connector and the location of the other wires. It was only the 32 pin connector that causing me issues (no document with instructions)

The backup camera should be wired as pin 33 (camera ground), pin 34 (camera power supply) and pins 35 & 36 (camera image signal)

Your newer nav radio uses a different bluetooth (handsfree) module than your old base radio. You can find these on fleaBay (Nissan PN 28383-ZY71A). It also requires a slight mod: the new module expects pins 4, 23, & 24 to be grounded. The older bluetooth module expects 4 and 24 to be grounded. I'm going to install a modded unit later today. Hoping that restores the handsfree ability. Will keep you posted.

That Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal OEM Steering wheel adapter is for aftermarket radios.

So changing the radio unit gave you the audio streaming feature?

Can I find out what radio part #'s you are using? I am thinking of doing the same thing.

Thank you in advance.

OK, I only had a couple hours to work on the kids Versa, so I was rushed. And rushing work like this usually leads to problems.

Bluetooth Issue: I pulled the radio out, and noticed the shop I hired last year did a half-ass job. They used flakey t-tap connectors for backup camera power and did not even splice the wires for the following signals:

EQ2
EQ4
AV Comm High
AV Comm Low
Tel Voice Shield
Tel Voice Negative
Tel Voice Positive

to the new 32-pin harness. So not all of the radio’s features were working. This might’ve had something to do with the Bluetooth not working too.

So I did what the shop should’ve done (spliced, soldered, and heat shrunk the 7 unconnected wires from the old 16-pin harness to the new 32-pin harness) using the schematic diagrams from the factory service manual.

After the radio wiring, I took out the old bluetooth module and installed the new modded BT module. This was brutal…I had to remove the rear seat, the rear seat back hinge, and the right rear cargo panel to access the BT module. I should’ve tested the old bluetooth module first (since I just reconnected AV Comms and the Tel Voice Signals) at this point. But in my haste, I installed the new modded BT module. When I tried to add a phone, I didn't get the "Add Phone" command (argh!). BUT, the internal diagnostic test on the radio “saw” the new BT module and stated it was working correctly. It didn’t even see the old module before, but back then AV comms and Tel Voice signals weren’t connected. This was a good thing.

But, more troubleshooting and work needs to be done here.

Mounting the USB plug: I tried to cut a hole into the center console with a unibit…argh, once again, rushing the job, I ended up cutting the hole too big, so the USB plug did not snap in tightly. So I ordered an improved USB plug mount with a back nut to make it snug.

More work needs to be done here as well.

Running the XM antenna: the connector from the XM antenna did not fit the connector on the back of the radio. So I had to order a FAKRA adaptor for this antenna.

As usual….more work.

Hopefully, I can take my time next month when the kid comes home for spring break.

Sorry to piggyback this thread, but it looks like a lot of good information.

I have a 2014 Nissan Versa Note with the basic radio.


I am looking to purchase the upgraded Radio (28185-3WC0A):


or

Do I need this one (28185-9MB0A) if I want to stream Bluetooth Audio:


I am looking for the wheel functionality, Bluetooth (Phone and Media), and XM. Can someone direct me in what else I would need to purchase/do to get this working? Would I need to purchase a SiriusXM antenna as well?

Thanks in advance!

You are correct. You need the Navigation radio (your 3rd picture) to do bluetooth streaming. But the Navigation radio you posted looks like it's from a Sentra, it might not fit in a Versa. Look online for a second hand unit. It should look like this:

http://www.autosavant.com/wp-content...a-note-004.jpg

You also might have to upgrade the bluetooth module which is mounted in the right side of the cargo/trunk area.

I had the exact radio in your first picture. I swapped it out for the radio in your second picture. It wasn't a total plug-and-play job. The gray AM/FM antenna and white main connector harnesses on the back of the new radio are plug-n-play. But you also have to map 7 wires from the 16 pin connector harness to a new 32 pin connector. If you want the 3 extra cameras on the navigation radio for the birds-eye view, that's even more work.

Download the AV section of the versa note factory service manual for reference.

good luck
