I just bought an '05 Pathy SE 4x4. I don't know what all the standard bells and whistles are. But the steering wheel has the volume/station controls. But, per the "Certified Pre-Owned" paperwork, the factory system was not working. So they had an audio shop install a single-height Pioneer CD unit (with the cubby/holder space below it). OK, the sound and all is OK. But they didn't hook up the controls from the steering wheel. Our Xterra has them and love the controls. So I want to add this to the Pioneer, OR replace it with a full size model (that fits the full space).
I looked on Crutchfield, but it asks if it has the Bose system or not. I have no idea. Looking on various microfiche sites (like CourtesyNissan.com) I don't even see a type of stereo for my year that only fills that space. The ones listed have a NAV screen and controls all down the console, not just at the screen area. On my console, everything below the system "pocket" is standard climate and other controls. So I'm hoping someone can help me out here.
1. Any idea WHAT system my Pathy had?
2. Are there any add-on parts that I can add to use the steering controls to the Pioneer (or where to point me to start finding out)?
3. Any suggestions as to what full size system would work with the steering controls?
a. Would at minimum like: Bluetooth, MP3/iPod, CD/CD-R. After that depending on price I'd consider NAV/GPS and/or DVD.
Thanks for any help!!!
