I HATE not being able to use the navigation while moving. To correct this Nissan faux pas, I want to put a switch on the VSS wire of the navigation unit, but I'm not sure if I have the correct wire. On a different thread, baseballfanz said that it is the wire: "white with red...pin 28 on the M95 plug" but I don't know where the M95 plug is?? So, attached is a picture of the Nav unit backside. I want to put a switch on the W/R wire connected to the harness but don't know if that is correct.

A better option would be to splice into this wire under the display panel. Does anyone know which wire to splice??? Attached picture shows a possible wire to the Nav unit. Pictures would be much appreciated.

I tapped into the wire at the back of the nav unit under the passenger seat - it was easier to get to. When I get a chance, I will look at my setup and see if you found the right wire.

Edit - Yep, that looks like the right wire.

So all you have to do is put a regular toggle switch inline? If so then why do i see all of these kits for sale for like 30-50 bucks? Are they really selling a 50 dollar switch?

I've heard from others that the switch is all you need, and it makes perfect sense. Switch off when you want to program in a destination, then switch back on to allow tracking of your mileage, speed, etc.

See this link: .infinitifx.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=39&
(I don't have 15 posts and can't post links???, so add the "www" to the front of the link)

Now I just need to confirm the wire before snipping away!

k thanks i got it now, i think the kits that i saw make it where you never have to use a switch. It just totally takes it out so you can input information at anytime without the truck in park and without turning a switch off then back on.

Reviving this thread. I am ready to install a switch but want confirmation about the correct wire and location to cut. I have searched 4 different forums w/o a definitive answer.
Top candidate: White wire w/ red stripe on back of Nav unit under pass seat, on M95 plug, pin 28 (where ever that is)..

Need to confirm wire and exact location.

looking at the picture taken from under the dash it seems it would be the same wire.
I may cut this wire under the pass seat and see if it works. If so, Ill install a SPST switch. If not, Ill mend the wire and post the results. Anyone see a downside to this experiment?

Not unless the passenger seat doesn't stop ticking after you cut the wire........ :fktardxpl

I'm surprised BBF hasn't been in here yet to answer this. Hey BBF! You out there?

Actually, it looks to me that the white/red wire under the dash is a thicker awg than the white/red wire under the passenger seat. Plus a "signal" wire, such as the VSS, is just that............a signal wire! So the wire doesn't have to be that thick, like the one pictured under the dash.

Did this mod this am before church. Works great. Fast, easy mod. Hardest part was proving that I had the correct wire before cutting. I have an 04 CC, LE. The correct wire (VSS wire) is the white w/ red stripe wire that goes into the grey plug in to the back side of the nav unit under the front pass seat as pictured below.

The 04 plug and wire location are different that those Ive seen posted for Armada, some older Titans, etc.

I bought a tiny toggel switch and mounted it in the corner of the space in the center console (passenger side of the space- across from the swing out cup holder). See Pic. The switch is so amall it tucks into the corner well, and the normal position is to towards the passanger, so if it gets bumped, it will most likely be towards the default position anyway. I feel like this will work well and be out of sight.

Pulled the dvd player/ console bin out to run the wire and mount the switch. Easy install from there. Used a link here for center console cooler to get the idea. Also, downloaded the manual from Nissan for 20$. All downloaded and saved except the "engine control" files kept timing out. Ill try again tomorrow.

Coo........thanx for the pic, clean work too. I think if/when I do this I'll make the switch completely inconspicuous. I'll mount it somewhere inside the arm rest console since I wouldn't need to hit the switch THAT often.
