    Very interesting. I just picked up a 2009 nissan armada, and it also has the color information screen, but does not have DVD, rear camera or NAV. I'm thinking of trying to tie something into the screen, but honestly don't know what modules i have and don't. Looking at the wiring diagrams on alldata, it apears i likely have the av control module, but not much else.

    So, do you have notes on you're pinout experiments that might help me get a head start?

    I did notice in my investigations of the wiring diagrams, that at least in my 2009 vehicle, the display unit (screen) actually looks like it has both RGBS and COMP inputs. Just a matter of figuring out how to tell it to switch inputs I guess.

    I have just purchased a 2006 Nissan Teana 3.5 JM and have started looking around for some solutions to the Japanese computer interface. I have maximum admiration for your work! Would love to try it but really don't have the tech know-how to make all that come together!

    I have figured out how to pair my phone to bluetooth using this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqp2wsTPUPM, but wanted to ask you how to go about setting up an audio aux input for the system. There is a TV/AUX button on the console (left of the white buttons in your first picture) and when I go to aux with this button I see a picture of an rca cable (or similar). I'd like to set up a 3.5 mm jack input (to use an ipod etc) that becomes live when I press that button. Any ideas how I'd go about that?

    Inside the drivers arm rest is a cable with a strange connector which I suspect may be an input point but don't know for sure (photo below).

    Thanks in advance, Malc

    Hi macl12. I explored trying to make this from that cable (and another 1 that was in my armrest) but to no avail. In the end I got into the audio cable from the DVD ROM unit in the glove box and tapped in there. The issue there is that that it also carries the BT audio for the phone so I am unable to have both. Have a look at the attached pic from the (unreadable for me) manual. This page is from the chapter on phone connection and bluetooth. There must be a way to use the aux in otherwise why is it there?

    I responded yesterday with an image but it has yet to show up on the forum. I'm pretty sure this connector is to connect to a phone for use as a modem / handset connection. I have the Japanese manual which has a pic it connected to a phone in the chapter on Bluetooth.

    I tapped into the audio feed that came from the DVD Rom in the glovebox. This was quite simple but was at the expense of other audio coming from there too - IE the Bluetooth audio so I can't have both.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you

    Thanks for the reply - I was left wondering if my post was going to be published too!
    In the meantime I have come to a solution that I'm pretty happy with. The guys who installed a stereo in my previous car were able to add a small box with a usb port, sd card slot and* jack into my glove compartment. As I understand it; the box interfaces with the CD changer port & software (which is great because my car came with no CD changer set, just a CD & MD player on the console) and as a result I can play music from all three inputs on the box with the added advantage of controlling the first two inputs with the track changer/volume on the steering wheel and keep the bluetooth function. I now have a working CD/MD player, 3 Aux inputs and bluetooth - all I ever wanted! The aux in from the jack is a little difficult to navigate through the CD changer interface as it requires moving backwards and forwards through some japanese menus but it's there if I really need it. The box has no part numbers on it & I forgot to get the manual from the guys who installed it - apparently it was all in Chinese anyway.

    Once again thanks for helping me to think outside the box - it really helped with my conversations with the guys who kitted me up. Cheers, Malc

    I am desperately looking for these connectors as well, do you have a link or a name i could search for?
