Can anyone help me out.. I have a 2009 Titan and a buddy is gonna hook me up with his OEM head unit w/nav from a 2017 Titan. Does anyone know if wire harness is the same and if it would fit in the dash?

2017 to 2009... They are not remotely close to being swap able. You are better off to get a 7 inch 2 din pioneer or similar head unit.

I agree with SDF1 would not work nor be worth the hassle of trying. A low cost double din radio from a reputable manufacture that has Apple car play and android auto would be a good choice. That would give you NAV.

I have a 2015 Pro-4x and have access to a 2014 SL head unit. Mine doesn't have Nav but the SL one does. Would that be a direct swap or easier to go Double DIN aftermarket?

You'd need to install a GPS antenna for the nav to work. Also (not sure about that year) some of the nav head units house the actual GPS/Nav computer in a remote location and not built into the display itself. On my 2012, it's actually a DVD player mounted under the passenger seat!.

It really doesn't make much sense upgrading your outdated Nissan tech to slightly-less-outdated Nissan tech. You'd be much better off going with an aftermarket head unit. Easier, cheaper, better... I'm currently in the act of scrapping my top-of-the-line (for 2012) Rockford Fosgate Nav system to install a modern Android touchscreen head unit.

I see what you’re saying and I was leaning that way as well. The SL head unit was free out of a parts truck so the swap was gonna be free... looks like I’ll have to break out the dollar bills. Preciate it!

I understand the attraction of a free upgrade. I'm a card-carrying Cheap Bastard myself. But sometimes it's worth the money to just get better equipment. I've been chronicling my head unit upgrade in this thread: Android Head Units
I finally have all the parts and I plan on doing the installation this weekend. I'm really looking forward to having current technology in my Titan!
