Hey!

 

I just got a red 2009 370z a few days ago also!

Hopefully we can share some info.

I'm currently looking at how best to add multimedia and a reverse camera.

Talking to a guy in China that supplies a plug and play android upgrade for touch screen systems.

It uses factory screen, controls, steering controls and touch screen. Adds google maps, YouTube, mp3, video and reverse camera.

He has them available for a lot of cars including late Nissan and Infinity. They are listed to work with 2012+ and I showed him pics of the 2009 interface and he was confident it would work also.
I questioned the 40 pin harness on the 2009 vs 32 pin on the 2010+ (his unit appears to have a 32 pin) and he is talking to his engineer.

Hopefully they can just wire the correct plugs and we're good to go.

Price is about $320US

 

If that doesn't workout I'll probably go a naviks to add a reverse camera and use the aux for spotify

 

Also found a full tablet install dash bezel for around $1000, but is for non Nav cars, so you'd need to convert to non nav AC and add.

Welcome Lucifa. Another red Z. I own one although a Roadster. Best colour Zed in my opinion, I searched far and wide for mine and wasn't going to comprise on colour! 

Cheers,

Rodd

Hi There, with regards to event meeting etc you may want to also link up with a smaller group from Sydney. This community here appears more for general discussion etc, which is great, a lot a good info in theses forums. Some events do run via the facebook page but i don’t think one has run in NSW for many years.

I just joined the 'Official Sydney Fairlady Z owners’ club, which seem to be mainly 350/370z owners. They are very active with events/drives etc, going to my first one this Sat 12 Jan called ZFEST 2019, a bit of a show & shine-all for fun and lunch, already 23 going so should be great-check out their Facebook page.

Cheers,

Rodd

    • Engine light coming on too frequently
      By Newby101 · Posted
      Hey guys.  Was hoping anyone would be able to help me out here.  I recently bought a 2009 370z Auto about 6 weeks ago. Since then, I’ve had to get it serviced 8 times due to the check engine light coming on.  I’ve had all the Oxy sensor and MAF’s replaced and the light still comes on. Whatever is causing it is also making the cars acceleration lag a bit.  Its getting beyond a joke now. I picked it up yesterday morning and by the afternoon the light was on.    Has as anyone had a similar issue // have any ideas to check for??   thanks 
    • Solenoids either side under bonnet/hood latches – what are they?
      By IanzZed · Posted
      Hi Ausmo they are pyrotechnic solenoids. if you hit a pedestrian ( or anything hard) , they fire off and lift the bonnet up at the back to help cushion the impact of said pedestrian. there are sensors in the front of the car that sense when something hits the front hard enough.    
    • Programming key fob
      By Button1 · Posted
      For the record I have a 2003 Nissan 350z Australian delivery and I have successfully programmed a new key fob for the car after sorting out two issues. 1. The original remote I had operated at 315Mz frequency which I was let to believe would work on my car.  After having no success I purchased the 433Mz European version of the key fob and this turned out to be the correct one. 2. There are at least 3 different methods to program 350z key fobs depending on the cars country of delivery eg. USA, UK, Japan.  The one that works for Australian cars is described as Method A in the attached instructions.  Unlike the USA & UK cars the hazard lights do not flash during the programming steps.  To programme do this - 1. Close both doors. 2. Both doors must be locked using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 3. Insert the key into the ignition 5 times within 10 secs and remove. 4.  Quickly insert the key again and the doors will unlock. 5. Turn the key to the accessories position (not the on position). 6. Quickly lock both doors again using the small rocker switch near the door handle. 7. Press the unlock button on your key fob and both doors should unlock indicating the key fob is programmed. 8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for additional key fobs. 9. Remove the key from the ignition and all of your key fob should now be programmed and lock/unlock the car. Note: I did have trouble with the timing of these steps.  I found that unless step 5 & 6 were done quickly the car would not recognise the key fob at step 7. I hope this helps someone.
    • Wiring for Audio in a 2004
      By victord683 · Posted
      Hi folks   I am putting in Pioneer Z5250BT head unit in my 2004. When I was removing  the 10 pin plug from the factory Bose unit it came apart and all the wires went everywhere (Shit!) . I thought it could too complicated to put them back in order.  When I have looked at other sites  to work this out the wiring they refer to doesn't match the colours that are in wiring harness.    I have the following wires   orange, red, Grey, Blue/White (larger wire which I assume is main power), red/blue, white, pink/black, Green. There is also a small Blue/White wire on a single plug. There is a separate line Green/white which is with the antenna and I can assume is for the power antenna. I need to know what these wires are and where they go on the 10 in plug. I have the Aeropro wire harness to plug into the 10 pin plug. I just need to get them in the right order,. Can anyone help?    Thanks
