Radio upgrade
 
Hi,

I haev a 2007 Nox with the standard Pioneer soundsystem. I'm looking to maybe change the radio, but I have some questions.

Do you have any pics of a single din instalation on a Nox?

Do the radio will control some features that I will loose with an aftermarket radio?

Do the tweeter will still works with an aftermarket radio that is rated to 52w x 4?


thanks

Pascal

I couldn't find any photos and there are plugs and adapters to keep all your steering wheel controls.

The tweeters should be fine for now but I would save up for new ones later on...

After some months, I get tired of waiting for the perfect deal for my double din radio. I've found something interesting on ebay this afternoon. An Alpine headunit with ipod control, there was no bid on it and it was closing in 30 minutes. So I bit 30$ on a starting bid of 29.50 and get it. Can't wait to get back the ipod control !!

I've checked with an audio shop next to the dealer where I work:

Metra finition kit : 28$
Wiring harness : 25$
Antenna adapter : 18$


Not that bad for all that stuff. I will just need to find the alpine full speed ipod wire

this what you need.

if they will hook up the radio without that you will loose:
Warning Chimes

Folding Mirrors (Including Reverse)

Park Assist (Front/Rear)

Heated Seats

AC Fan Speed

Turn Signal



its very easy to test! take out the radio and try to ride the car. ist very easy to take out the radio. everething is on the clips.

prheaume 02-14-2012 04:07 PM

I don't think I need this as I don't have all that stuff you listed.

my folding mirrors are not automatic, I have electric mirror but the folding part is manual, I don't have park assist, heated seats or automatic fan speed as well.

I have a LS base model with the AWD.

that is why I only need the 25$ wiring harness according to the shop

I've checked on mitchell on demand for the wiring diagram. But damn, I don't like the idea of paying 80 buck for a module..

Maybe I will try it without, and see what happen lol

I've searching the web for the best deal. No doubt the best deal is in USA. On amazon.com, they ask 57$ for it. On amazon.ca ... 122$. Now I'm looking for an audio shop in USA near the borders where I can go buy it, I'm only 40 min of drive from Vermont.

and what about the company that you gave me?

prheaume 02-19-2012 05:35 PM

they are open only 8-5 monday to friday, I have to take a day off to go pick up. If they were open on evening and weekends I would be more than happy to use them.

That is why I'm looking for an audio shop in Vermont, I've found one in Newport but they seems to don't answer to emails....

prheaume 02-20-2012 07:10 PM

Found one on the net, brand new, for 36$ yeah baby!
