Gen. 1 Sat/Nav upgrade. What I have learned so far.
I wanted to put XM in my car without using an external receiver, so I did some research and found the Bosch Nav unit was the best option.
These were found in the following:
These were commonly used between 2010 and 2012.
All will work in the Gen 1 Versa with 1 or 2 little mods on the main 20 pin connector.
1- Most will have to add a ground wire to pin 20 and to a body ground. The original radios get their ground through the radio chassis itself, unlike the Nav radios.
Hence this mod.
2- Those originally with base radios will have to add a VSS wire to pin 18 and to pin 4 on the cluster connector.
Those originally with speed sensitive volume do not need to do this mod.
Everything else is the same on the 20 pin connector.
I am just sharing the basics so far. I am waiting on a few parts before I do the install.
BTW I got my radio out of a 2012 Cube.
