Hello All,

I just recently bought a 06 White Titan SE CC and it's my baby! Best truck I have ever owned! So it has the rear sensors, adjustable break and 6 disk changer but no Nav. I will be honest, I have read through a lot of post in this section of the forum and a lot of it goes over my head(sorry) :(

My questions are: 1) Seeing as I am begining to realize that I like the look of my cd/radio/mp3 the way it is (havent seen any aftermarket in the titan that really impressed me, then again I haven't seen that many aftermarket installs at all either!) Can a guy go and get a factory nav and "hook" it up. Does my unit that I currently have support it? And if so where would a guy get one of these. I have seen the website that someone posted about modifiying one so the screen can be used with dvd, but I figure first things first. And if anyone has anynice pics of aftermarket units installed with screens will you please post some or direct me to where I can see some on a Titan?

Thanks in advance to everyone for your quick responses to my noob questions!

With enough money, anything is possible. But as BB mentions, it's too integrated into other systems in the truck to just be a simple plug and play type thing. Your best bet is an aftermarket HU that is Nav capable to have a really clean look. Going with that option, you can have your Nav, Satelite and backup camera all in the new HU. Search around and you'll find some examples of some who have done all of that. Good luck!

Honestly, Nissan's NAV is about the worst there is. Honda's is number one for me on ease of use, etc.

I would suggest getting an aftermarket NAV. A few people have gotten the bezel and used an aftermarket nav and screen in there, you might want to look into that.

If you want to have the factory nav look get a Clarion N.I.C.E. and install it into the factory nav housing. I did that and it looks like OEM. Plus, I get Sirius and MP3 capability. I tied mine into the AUX port and it sound clear. Actually I only keep it on the Sirius and don't listed not regular radio. Some others on TT and CT have done this install.

Guys... I CAN"T thank you enough!!! This is EXACTLY what I was talking about and this is the route for me I do have another question though...
In this pic... (It wont let me post the pic... it is one of the pictures from one of the links that BlackBeauty added. the cd button only shows "CD". On my truck it shows "cd/dvd" does that mean I could play dvds if I hook up something like this in my unit or would I have to get that special converter or is that just for the factory Nav units?

Also what does OEM mean? and is the "Bezel" the whole center plastic piece that holds the screen and around the radio? (again sorry for the noob questions!)

And lastly (for right now) what would I need a lap top in my fricken truck for??? or would I not need that? I should hope not... will it still work with out it?
I just want to say thanks again.. This is the exact smooth clean look I want to go for!

The CD/DVD is for the DVD that is installed in the center console when you purchase the rear seat entertainment system. Your radio should have a little earphone symbol on the far right, as well, right? That would control the wireless headphones that operate in the rear cabin area only.

If you plan on going the route of the Clarion N.I.C.E. do a search. There are severl links that have a lot of information on how the install was done. Also, check club titan for some installatoin information. For the most part the work is pretty simple and takes about a half day to complete if done properly. Keep in mind, you will have to purchase the factory navigation housing and trim your radio bezel down slighly for a clean fit.
