Hi all,

I recently got the 2016 versa note w/ the Bluetooth streaming and backup camera. I realized quickly that this unit doesn’t have navigation and would like to upgrade to a unit that does have one. I found online there’s a factory versa note that came w/ the navigation system installed so the prior owner of my vehicle chose not to get that package. I was thinking about buying that radio to replace my own and was wondering is that’s possible? Would it be a simple plugnplay or would there be more steps? Also are there any radios you guys would recommend for this model? I was thinking about the Sony ax-1000 since it has carplay but I’m not sure if my backup camera would work.

Forgive me if this is a repost I searched this site for a while before I decided to register.

Thanks in advance.

Honestly I think you would be better off to just get a Garmin. The radio you get with the Nav system isn't any better than the one you have and you would be stuck getting updates from Nissan.

If you rent cars you just carry the Garmin with you and don't pay the extra charge for the Nav system.

I'd think this would require dealer intervention or specialized equipment to communicate with the BCM to swap a factory nav system from one versa to another versa.

You could, BUT, it would take alot of work to do it.
There are differences in the secondary connector. The display unit, which you have, has a 30 pin, the nav unit has a 24.
There are also differences in the aux/usb connectors.

Thank you all for your replies. I won’t go that route then. Anyone have any recommendations for a replacement that would fit reasonably well? Im only looking for CarPlay and a way to connect the back-up camera.

Thanks again
