    To be honest, 370zs are so noisy while driving, sound quality isnt really an issue. The noise from the car is so loud that you would lose any of the delicate notes from anything playing on even the best sound system. The Coolstream Duo/Navdy combination is working brilliantly now since some very intelligent people have hacked the Navdy firmware and App since the company disappeared. Works with voice recognition and also has a steering wheel mounted jog dial which works nicely. Literally the best option out there that I have seen. You just need to upgrade to the latest software for everything to work. Lookup Navdy on reddit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ive been thinking some more and I’m now considering mounting a mechless headunit in the glovebox and just running an rca line out to piggy back into the factory system aux. it kills a few birds with one stone - Bluetooth, better phone, multi band equaliser, cheap and won’t ruin the factory look. The glovebox is too small to be useful for storage but I think a single din headunit would fit nicely in there and will require minimal wiring. It’ll also free up the centre console compartment and the 12v socket for phone charging. I have an old head unit lying around somewhere so I can see how it looks and play around with a faceplate designbefore I commit to it.

    There's not enough room behind just the screen unfortunately. Mounting a tablet is your best bet of keeping the A/C etc. One of the Sydney guys is trying to mount an iPad Mini so we'll see how that goes, but it'd likely be via Bluetooth to the AUX.

    I was looking into sourcing a U.S. base model system (fascia, cubby, and the A/C controls), but that's no longer happening. The defroster hasn't been figured out yet (you need to re-wire the A/C controls to accept the base dials, I was thinking of wiring in the plug needed in-line so you have both in case you ever want to switch back)

    replacing the factory HUD
    has anyone done it?
    i was thinking about replacing the LCD with a double din HU or an appropriately sized android tablet. I know id lose the reverse cam and the AC temperature but the reverse cam sucks and i could always use the AC in manual which i pretty much do now anyway. I bought a 2010 model 370 so lucky me i got the one without bluetooth audio so right now a 10 year old ipod sticky taped to the dashboard would be a better entertainment system than the one nissan tried to pass off as premium so im open to suggestions. Im currently doing ok with a bluetooth receiver pluged into the AUX, but the whole two band equaliser on the factory system just doesnt cut. for some reason jacking up the bass slider just increases the lower midrange drone and none of the low range punch im looking for. I know the factory bose system is capable of the goods because i used an inline equaliser to filter out the midbass and it sounded great. i just want a headunit with at least 5 band....

    Hi All,
    I have the 2013 (MY2012.5) 370z and like most of you it came with outdated 2011 maps on delivery.  I have put up with it for a while but now looking to update to the the most recent version (2018 V24).  Just wondering if anyone has come across an inexpensive way of obtaining the new map data.

    you know, ive never actually connected straight into the RCA - that has never been an option - i refuse to plug in and unplug my phone every time i get in and out of the car so regardless of any quality difference it hasnt been worth testing because its not something im prepared to do. what I can tell you it sounds good, im not getting any discernable digital signal or ground loop noise....im happy. Before plugging it into the 370 this same module was being used as a receiver for my old home stereo and it sounded good connected to that as well so thats what gave me the idea of trying it in the car. As nice as it sounds, sadly it doesnt sound as good as the stereo in my old 350Z but from what ive read on here thats accurate. nissan kinda went backwards on the 370.

    How’s the sound quality though? Compared to be being a straight plug-in to the RCA Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    i just clicked the first link - there might be some cheaper but mine looks exactly like this with both RCA and 3.5mm outputs

    OBD2 Protocol
    Hi guys.
    I was going through my stuff and I found my OBD2 cable that i was using for a BMW i had. I remember at the time i had to buy a cable that supported K+D Protocols (ie K+DCAN cable). Will this work with my 370 or is this something totally different? Now that i have a japanese car again my old trusty bluetooth module works great so i cant see myself ever using the cable again, but i dont want to throw it away if it is still useful.

    I bought a bluetooth audio receiver with RCA out off ebay that works a treat, and its 5v too so a cigarette lighter usb phone charger powers it and keeps it all hidden. I can connect my phone to it and the factory handsfree at the same time no worries. I also bought a little round bluetooth remote from Jaycar that is a little smaller than a 20c coin and comes with a steering wheel clip holder so i can play/pause/skip tracks without having to touch the phone. Apparently the button cell that powers it lasts about 2 years so i dont need to worry about charging it. I was thinking about buying a cheap android tablet and mirroring the screen via the monitor input but for now im happy enough with this setup
  13. Cam added a post in a topic How to correct 370Z speedo error?   

    Probably a bit late for most but I only bought my 370 last weekend and like everyone else i was annoyed by the speedo being out so much. I dont trust GPS speedometers because they fluctuate too much and are slow to refresh, but i found the OBD2 port gives you access to the correct speed even if its not showing on the clocks. I used the torque app and one of those bluetooth OBD2 thingys to check, but i dont like the idea of having a wireless connection to my cars computer on a permanent basis in case it gets hacked or something. I didnt really like the whole reflect off the windscreen OBD2 HUD i got from supercheap so I bought an AUTOOL X60 im planning to mount either above the steering wheel or up on the dash depending on how it looks. I'll put up some pics once it arrives if anyone is interested. I think it can view and clear codes too so it might be a handy thing. Looking forward to having a speedo thats accurate and digital - even if the factory clock was accurate its not the easiest thing to read IMO....

    I'm in Sydney unfortunately, was about to suggest that though as we're planning a meet this Sunday.

    I'll see what I can do, but like I said, bit hard to find somewhere where you can do it without drawing attention etc

    P0011 Code (2012 370Z)
    Anybody have experience with the error code P0011? car is currently with the mechanic...unable to find an actual issue everything is checking out and few things been checked/ replaced but car is still not running right.
    Initial easier fixes through troubleshooting or stripping it down to access the gasket behind (unsure if it was the galley gasket) are yet to get it going, timing, valves, actuators etc. seem fine as checked once pulled apart a bit... mechanic said he had one or two more things to try then may have to get it to Nissan dealer. Could it be a simpler fix they have overlooked like oil pressure/ filter? but assuming they had already gone their through process of elimination..

    370z soft top replacement
    Hi guys.
    I bought a 370 roadster recently and when i was checking it out i noticed a little tear starting. i didnt think much of it because my 350 soft top replacement was pretty straight forward, there was plenty of DIY literature and the tops were all over ebay.
    Now i own the thing, i went looking to buy a replacement top and....err....no literature and next to nothing available. crap.
    Help? Suggestions?

    Video would be great if you get the chance. If you are ever in the Newcastle area and have a few minutes let me know as i would like to hear it in person. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    I don't but I'll try and see if I can get some (bit hard to find a spot where you can rev it without any dramas)

    I would suggest listening in person though, exhaust videos hardly ever show you properly (due to variation in position of cameras etc) besides a rough idea of the tone.

    You may want to consider buying a used standard replacement, and getting them modified (painted, etc). That may still end up a fair bit cheaper, and they'll perform better if you do stuff like upgraded lenses, modified cut-off shield, etc.
  23. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic Invidia HFC   

    Got one with the Gemini CBE, it got noticeably louder after installing the HFC.

    For CEL (check engine), it's luck of the draw with any cats or test pipes. Even with extenders, etc, you can still get them, there's no such thing as a "guaranteed no CEL". But a tune easily sorts that...
  24. shadow85 added a post in a topic AAM Competition Twin Turbo 370Z   

    No worries. If you can install it yourself, it will be worth it.
    I have just finished my tuning stage and car is fully on-road.
    I can tell you it is an excellent kit, the power and response is so good! But I am going to bloody need some wider tyres soon, it has made 1st, 2nd, and some of 3rd gear uselss if you want to plant it! Really have to baby it around.
  25. A37TZ added a post in a topic Headlight replacement   

    Thanks for your reply,I also think they will fit but Nissan can’t confirm and at nearly 2k per side and ordered in no doubt there would be hassles to return if lights don’t fit
