Hi All,

I have a 2006 Model Nissan Note SE, looking to upgrade the stereo, it currently has one of the very old one disks stereos. it has a little cubby above it to store things like wallet / phone etc.

I am wanting to change the stereo to something a little bit more up to date, sat nav and bluetooth would be perfect!

Its also the fact my current stereo won't play discs I burn with my computer which is extremelyfrustrating!

However I would be okay with just bluetooth but ideally I would like the nissan connect system.

I am aware I need some sort of new head unit to replace the current one ( where the vents are in the middle of the car )

basicallywhat I am trying to find out is there a quick way of changing it into a Nissan Connect system. I'm not very confident with cars and this nissan note is my very first car ( im only young! )

Is there any after market system that is easy to fit / get someone to fit it that will work with what I want?

Thanks you all in advance for helping a newbie :)

Have a look at the search function here and there are loads of threads on changing to a new head unit/ upgrading to Connect.

there are plenty of threads on the forum there must be 20+ threads on the connect alone

The basics are in the how to's (speakers and stereo removal)

the note has either a double din or single din slot so ant aftermarket stereo will fit with the exception of the early 6 disk unit what uses a different size surroundEdited by: flash22

Looks like a really nice unit and one distinct advantage over a Connect (for old farts like me who love cricket) it has Long Wave!!!

I don't like pony incar stuff it trades of the brand name but a lot of the technology is very out dated some of the low end units are based on 20 year old designs

nigel. the standard radio in the facelift note has lw, mw and fm the connects proper name is the Nissan lcn (Low cost navi)tbh the only way to get the lw and mw is to get a dab interface or an old Roberts radio like thay had back in the 40-50's

Or, when I had my 6volt Dafs a ruddy great Grundig 'Yacht Boy' radio jammed into the parcel shelf with a modified battery compartment to take a feed from the car battery. HiFi it wasn't but the radio was cheaper than an inverter at the time.

I have one of the 3900s in The Other Car

The USB player is flawed, and won't recognise most of the tracks on a large memory stick. Sony are deaf to any complaints from customers, there are a fair few threads about this model.

Stick to small capacity memory sticks and mp3 files on CD and it is fine.
It will work with an iphone4 if you don't mind the cable coming out of the front. I think the bluetooth audio works after a fashion, but I never use it as it is a good way to flatten the phone battery.

However the bluetooth hands free works very well on the iphone, it supports whatever protocol it is where it gets the phonebook off the phone by itself.

I've got to say I have been playing about with it all afternoon and I'm very impressed.

The one touch answering when your getting a call is flawless.

And the ability to play Audio from Bluetooth to the car stereo is perfect for what I want. No messing the A2DP profile works perfectly and it's excellent.

I don't think I will ever do the data cable method or USB stick.

I'm pretty sure I can charge my iPhone off then stereo another feature the connect doesn't have. Perfect for long journeys.

All in all a well worth upgrade for £100. Now to get the windows tinted :)

But then yours doesn't do navigation

Be careful if you do - the police around here have been having a field day recently with their 'tint-ometer'

And in west London too. Spotted a guy pulled over on the A4 last week who was being watched peeling the tint film from his windows.

b pillar back you can have you what you want tint wise, there isn't a tint that will be legal on the fronts, the darkest tint you can have is the standard Nissan glass (ntec+ and tekna)

don't forget the little back side windows

The stereo head unit shown in the link only has a 4 speaker capability whereas your 2006 Note SE should have had a 6 speaker system. How did you wire it up, did you keep the steering wheel function aswell?

Thanks in advance of any responses.
