  1. New Pro-4X Cummins Diesel?

    2016+ Nissan Titan Reviews
    In my experience, Titans lose value about as fast as Rams, mostly because there’s so much wheeling and dealing on new ones. But if you get a healthy discount on a new one, the depreciation shouldn’t hurt so much. I’d still bet the Titan does better than the Ram, depreciation wise, at 5, 10, and...
  2. 2019 Titan Tow and Moving Adventure

    Titan Towing & Hauling
    Interesting. My old 2015 Titan Pro4X got about 7 mpg, towing a 6600 lb (loaded) travel trailer. Same trailer behind my 2017 Pro4X, I got 9 mpg on the same roads. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Retain factory USB with aftermarket head unit

    A little research seems to indicate this is a common connection on Nissans. The Rogue cable that terminates in that connector is 24018-1VK0A. It’s a $70 harness, so I wouldn’t buy one just to cut it off, but knowing it’s common across a lot of models says a quick trip to the U-pull-It might reap...
  4. Retain factory USB with aftermarket head unit

    I don’t recognize that 4 pin connector for the aux port. Seeing the Nissan male side would tell you more than seeing the female side alone. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. 2017 Radio Software Version

    My 2017 factory RF head unit was suffering from random reboots and overall sluggishness. I had it reset and updated to current version, which is version F220. Was told (and software update confirms) that 2019 stereos with CarPlay and AndroidAuto are totally different hardware, which makes sense...
  6. 2019 Radio swap

    Update from Crutchfield seems to indicate harness has been successfully tested with RF systems. See update towards the end. 2018 Titan SV Aftermarket Stereo...
  7. After Market CarPlay Adapters

    It’s definitely NOT a software update. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. 2018 Pro4x CC poor Fuel mileage..??

    2016+ Titan General Forum
    I’ve got a 2017 Pro4X with 30k on it and your numbers are close to mine. I’ve seen 11 mpg on a tank that was 100% urban stop and go and have never gotten better than 19 mpg on the highway. That said, I live and work at 6,000’, which probably knocks 1-2 mpg off my numbers. In fact, the truck’s...
  9. 2017 Radio Software Version

    The 2019 Titan has Android Auto and Apple Carplay. I don't believe the old radio sets are backward flashable to add that functionality, but I'll be inquiring in a couple weeks, as my headunit has started spontaneously rebooting and dropping bluetooth audio streams. At the very least, I'll be...
  10. NissanConnect Services

    The app is buggy as hell, but I pay for the services. I've integrated the remote start with my Amazon Echo so I can say "Alexa, ask Nissan Connect to start my Titan.", which is very nice when it's zero outside and I haven't picked up my phone yet. More usefully, I ski at least once a week in...
  11. Want a 2018 Pro 4x but SCARED of Tranny Problems?

    2016+ Titan General Forum
    I had some hesitation issues in my first year of owning my 2017 Pro-4X, but I’ve had the transmission software updated and haven’t had any issues since. I’m now at 27,000 miles. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. How to: Grease the leaf springs to prevent squeaking

    Titan FAQ & How to Area
    Spiking an old thread with some new (to this conversation) info. The issues related to grease on 5160 leaf springs is, to the best of my knowledge (reinforced by insights from my FIL, a metallurgical engineer) are not chemical or specifically related to petroleum based lubricants. The issue...
  13. Extang Trifecta 2.0 Tonneau Cover

    Appearance & Body
    I have the Trifecta on my 2017 Pro-4X and it’s been OK, at best. Significantly more water intrusion than I had with the Bakflip I had on 2015. It also has a tendency to “walk” forward, despite being tightened down almost enough to strip the threads. The only things I can say in its favor is that...
  14. Want a 2018 Pro 4x but SCARED of Tranny Problems?

    2016+ Titan General Forum
    I’m at 16k miles and had the most recent transmission software update at 10k. Minimal issues before the update and no issues at all now. Averaging 14.5 mpg in city cycle and bouncing off the 20 on road trips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What was your reasoning for going either SV, SL or Platinum?

    2016+ Titan General Forum
    Good for you. Now I’m kind of mad. I spent time with the configuration tool online and didn’t see that it was possible and the dealer confirmed it wasn’t possible. And since it made sense based on what I’d found online, I didn’t pursue it further. [emoji36] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
