Question about Car Audio & Video
My problem is that when you start the 07 Nissan Armada, only four of the 14 characters appear. As suggest by one of you techs, press the DVD button before shutting the vehicle down and the next time you start the vehicle, all of the characters will appear. I have had the display replace 3 times, the XM unit once and the main head once. Nothing changes it's operation.
I have suggest to Nissan that they replace the entire unit with the upgraded navigation unit. That has a different display head and I haven't heard of any complaints on the unit.
So far Nissan hasn't came up with an acceptable solution or explanation. So, it is time to try plan B.
The present radio I have has AM/FM/XM/ 6 CD changer and the DVD equipment.
It is possible to change the existing unit for the upgraded nav unit while maintaining everything that I already have.
Is the wiring there for the upgrade? Can they use the existing head unit and just changing out the display unit?
If the head unit, display unit and the nav unit added, will the 6CD changer and teh DVD unit still work? Or does the whole system have to be changed out?

You're not going to like my answer.
This is a known issue with the Nissan Factory Installed XM radio. Well, known by their upper tier techs at least. And they have no fix for it. It's a defect in the firmware programming. There is a work around. Always have it set to CD when you turn your car on. Some owners have reported that, if it's set to CD first, and then switched to XM after the car is running, it continues to display 16 characters.
I know that's a pain in the neck, but it seems to be the closest thing to a solution there is, short of replacing the whole unit with a different model.

There is an obscure setting for 'AUX' on/off that is hard to find unless you know what you're doing or looked in the manual. Typical Pioneer for ya.
