5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi Guys,

I've persisted with my headunit long enough and rewally want to upgrade but would like a decent job or some advice to follow as i know there are a million threads on this but there is confusion regarding the steering wheel buttons etc.

If anyone has done one locally can they tell me what they have or where they got it done please.

Cheers

Jamie

Hey Jamie. Craig here. I own a business that does car audio down in Bunbury and an picking up an 03 350 to use as a demo vehicle. We will be decking the stereo side of things out as well as wrapping the vehicle. The options are really limitless for a replacement head unit. For a touch screen unit they start from around $600 and go up from there. Happy to help you out if you feel like a lovely drive to the south west.

Hi Jamie,

I replaced the head unit on my '06 Z with an alpine unit at Alberts in Bunbury. I just wanted a unit to play radio and MP3. I like the unit and they made it work with the steering wheel controls so I was happy. It could handle a reversing camera as well so I got that to. It ended up costing around $1700 I think but I reckon it was worth it. Oh and bluetooth as well. If you would like any more if let me know.

Or you can DIY it. I reused an Alpine ICS-X7 and bought nothing other than the Nissan-to-ISO harness and then spliced that to the Alpine loom. If you choose to reuse the existing Bose amp, then you need a Bose-to-ISO specific harness. FYI, it is a messy job so don't try it unless you're committed. As advised, a decent touch screen with Bluetooth capabilities will set you back about $650. The trim kit will set you back another $50-$100 inclusive of harness. Give some thought to upgrading the front speakers as they lack high end clarity. You'd only have to spend $100-$200 for a notable improvement. You can trim the OEM speakers and use them as spacers for 6.5" replacements. I bought Pioneer speakers in Japan, but I'd recommend going with Focals or something similar.

Hey Craig, 

Any options for 370z's? I'm in Ellenbrook myself and wouldn't mind the drive down for the sake of a better head unit.

Dan.

    • Remote help for 350Z
      By me123 · Posted
      Hey I just did this and it wasn't quite like all the instructions say. Do the key six times and the doors unlock, now lock the doors using the manual lock by the door handle - not the electronic lock button down by the window controls. Press a button on the remote and the doors will unlock to signal it has paired.  I think I had to put the key to acc and lock the doors quickly after doing the six inserts, then the remote could be pressed without rushing.

      3.9 you won't really notice the SRM but with 4.08 you will. ECUTEK tune can correct it

      Sorry for the revival of this post but US 370Z owners who did the FD change notes that SRM is off by a couple hundred rpms. To those with a local manual 370z with a 3.9/4.08 FD, do you guys suffer a similar issue? And if so, how did you rectify it?

      By ChocSoldier · Posted
      I use a Miccus Mini-Jack RTX if you want another alternative, another member at a meet had the older model (Mini-jack RX).

      The main thing is to look out for a Bluetooth receiver that supports A2DP, but doesn't support HFC, this will ensure it doesn't interfere with the car's bluetooth for calls (HFC = handsfree calls, A2DP is for audio streaming). I'm using an iPhoine 8 with it, and have used a 6s and various other friend's phones (iPhone 7's, Google Nexus devices etc) without any issues.

      If you're looking at the Miccus options, the one I chose has some more modern audio codecs than the older one (APT-X, etc), which in theory means better audio.
