  • 04 Titan Install

    2 weeks ago I traded in my 04 Nissan Frontier. I have another family member coming along in 3 months and the Frontier just does not provide the room needed. I was worried about taking a beating on it trading it in but as luck would have it, I took no beating whatsoever. Helps to have friends

    So now to the new vehicle, an 04 Nissan Titan KC 4WD SE. Sweet! but I have been missing my car computer so I finally got it installed last night.

    Same deal as with my Frontier, just a mid-level Kenwood Excelon and the digitallww in-dash housing Lilliput.

    The computer is a P4-1.8 using a Shuttle FB51 Mainboard, 512 Ram, yada yada that I have mounted in a custom enclosure under the driver's seat being powered with the Opus 150.

    The computer is running Windows XP. I use Frodoplayer as my front-end for playing MP3's & XM Radio. For navigation I am using iGuidance 2.0.

    Here are some pics, I apologize for the quality but for some reason inside the garage in the dark I can not get this thing to focus (go figure!).

      I am embarrassed to admit but I purposely did not take any pics of the truck because it is dirty! When I get into daylight I plan to take some better pics of the system and of a clean truck. I'll post them here when I do post.

      Thanks,

                  So you guys know, I did post a new message with much cleaner pics but back to the question. I did not take any pics of the computer because it is simply a 11" x 14" x 4" aluminum box with some wires coming out of it that is under the driver's seat. It is nothing special although it is clean looking.

                  Thanks to Nissan's design, there is a plastic piece that goes from the seat to the floor on the door side so you cannot see under the seats. The only access is from front or rear, made the install very easy and no one knows it's there except for me.

                  I suppose I could snap some pics of you are really interested.

                      The In-dash housing is the manual type.

                      Here are some rambling thought of the in-dash housing..................

                      If you have limited space, the in-dash housing is a no-brainer. If security is an issue and you want your install to look a little less obvious then the in-dash housing will help a tad.

                      The biggest plus of the in-dash is the ability to pivot left and right. This has proven to be invaluable to me as I get to view my screen "head on" and glare is rarely an issue. On the other hand, had I owned this vehicle in the beginning, my install would not have required the in-dash housing as I could have used the shroud that the Nissan Titan uses for their 7" navigation screen and mount the Lilliput screen in that.

                      I would like to convert to the stock look but the fact that it pivots is holding me back, I really like that feature. Most likely I will do that when the in-dash breaks. It will break, I have already had some issues due to using the vehicle off-road. In no way do I hold digitalww responsible, I am sure it is not intended to be used like this!

                        oh i also like the In-dash housing preferably manual type since you can pivot it left to right. in fact as soon as i get my new screen i'll convert it to an in-dash/manual.
