Hey all, I was wondering if it is possible to take a factory touchscreen radio out of a different year titan or possibly an aramada, and put it in my titan sv (2012). I was hoping it would just be a simple swap out instead of getting a new harness and bezel. Thanks in advance, Trevor

by my memory the touch screen radios in armadas have a separate screen and silver box portion. the CD mech is lower than the screen, below the big controller knob. I don't think that will fit in a 2012 titan bezel.
what does you 2012 radio look like? as I recall that year has a single bezel that comes down around the hvac controls. if that's not right and you have a bezel that has an opening for their rectangular radio (tall as 2DIN but wider), then yes, it should be possible.
the basic functions would work. the devil would be the details. Audio EQ might not sound right. steering wheel controls may not map correctly.etc...

I have been told by others that it's possible, but not easy. Much cheaper/easier/better to just get an aftermarket radio if you're looking to go that route.

Is there a place to find OEM radio part numbers to see which ones are compatible with one another?

I don't know if all, but I think the touch screens are Rockford with a separate amp. For instance my Rockford touch screen in mine only has low level outputs, the amp takes care of the high level outputs. So in theory you would have to purchase the amp and wire it in as well. I agree with what was stated above, go aftermarket. In 2013 they changed to a single plug.

I've been considering aftermarket for awhile just can really pin down a radio i want. Yes, my truck has the double din in it. Also does anyone know all of the harnesses I would need to make sure that the steering wheel controls, and the bluetooth mic that are already installed still work? I know it isn't really a big deal to have them, but I would like to keep the use of them if possible.

Steering wheel controls can be used with most aftermarket HUs using an adapter, ASWC is one from Axxess. How effective depends on the radio, I have a Pioneer and only vol up/down works.

The aftermarket HUs come with a built-in mic or an external one that plugs in. The plug-in one on my Pioneer works well. The OEM mic has an unusual configuration and I would not attempt to use it with an aftermarket HU - just use the one supplied with the new radio.

There a few posts on here you can look through, but the blue tooth will probably come in the aftermarket deck rendering the vehicles useless. The steering wheel controls can be hooked up with an adapter from PAC audio, or similar equipment. I've heard varying results of full functionality.
