Hallo,
I read somewhere, that if I want to use satellite radio with original audio system I have to have this system pre-wired from factory. How do I recognize, if I do have this or just a regular audio? I do have Pathfinder LE with 9 speaker BOSE radio + factory navigation. I want to hook up XM receiver, does also anybody know where to get one and do I need to use original factory receiver?
Thank you Michael

I'm pretty sure that all Nissans 2004 and up come pre-wired for satellite if the Bose system is installed. My 2003 Murano w/Bose did not come pre-wired even though there was a "SAT" button on the radio. But, people were buying the harness for the FX-35/45 and pre-wiring the Murano with Satellite.

I would be surprised if yours isnt pre-wired already. Ask the dealer. They should know.

There is nothing special about the Armada Head unit. Have to ask the dealer about Pathy. It is the Satellite Receiver that is what is added (plug and play, no mods necessary). You can go to Nissan and ask them to put it in. Cost is $400 option. Designed to be controlled through your factory unit, just hit the mode button to cycle through your options (CD, DVD, AM/FM, Satellite). Can get XM or Sirius. I have Sirius and love it. Listed to the Philadelpia Eagles put a woopin' on Cincinnati the other night from Florida. Can't do that on XM.

If you have your own XM receiver you can just buy the PAC AAI-NIS auxillary adapter and that will give you 2 aux inputs and you can use one for ur XM and the 2nd for mp3 player...

the PAC unit plugs into the back of your radio into the SAT plug and you can just hit the radio button to get to the SAT channel to listen to whatever is being played thru the aux input...

i also have the navi in my LE and i just use 1 for my iPod i don't spend enough time in my car to get sat radio...
