Upgrade SD satnav to non-SD satnav

Post by Willow5 » Fri Jun 19, 2020 5:50 pm

Hi there,

Does anyone know whether it is possible to upgrade the SD satnav radio from a J11 to a non-SD radio like the 259157FW0A or FW0B? I have heard that the radios are coded to the ECU but is there anything else to consider?

Many thanks

No one has reported success. Check out the other similar topics for discussion.

Thank you @gloucester. Where are the other similar topics please? I did search before submitting my query but maybe I was searching for the wrong thing

There are quite a few but I'd have to search too - I haven't bookmarked any

Very, very interesting. The 2019 Nissan In Car Entertainment system (ICE). Or Infotainment system

Yours is Xtrail so what is the cable conversion details. We would need the wiring mod detail to check the Qashqai wiring compatibility (for differences).

What was the price of the 2019 ICE you have?

What about Nissan software updates?

But after installation, you'll need go to dealer and rewrite your keys again. And all will be ok)))

Hi @incipient thank you for sharing these details. Can I just confirm, did you previously have the older Connect unit with double buttons on the left and right as well as the SD card?

Do you have the pinout for the older headunit with SD card? So basically are you saying that there will be no damage if I connect the newer headunit to an older Qashqai?
