    Take a look at stopshop... they should have a plug and play option that integrates nicely with your standard vehicle controls... alternatively google and try and find on ebay...

    - GPS Navigation
    - 6.2" touch screen
    - USB & SD/MMC port
    - dvd/mp3/mp4/cd playback
    - am/fm radio
    - bluetooth handsfree
    - built-in and external microphone
    - front and rear camera input
    - steering wheel control smart match
    - AV output
    - AV Input
    - remote control
    - 65w x 4ch

    Everything works including the steering controls and rear view in reverse (I had to fit that too, the Pathfinder did not have one, that was R300 for the camera). It has been going now for a year, I only have one issue, it does not have RDS.

    For R2500 I am happy. If you buy something else with the same features, it will cost you R5000 plus another "Link Cable" that may cost another R1000

    I had a pioneer avh 2750 that came with the cables to fit to the steering wheel controls, reverse camera etc. it was a really nice radio until it stopped switching on. Luckily Makro refunded me even though it was out of warrantee because the agents took so long to give a quote on repairing it, and the not switching on was a common fault for that model. There are nice pioneer double dins for about R4000, but things like navigation are extras.

    The one Malcolm has looks like a really good deal, otherwise you can go to https://www.planetworld.co.za/?term=...my=product_cat and spend quite a lot more.

    No, I got the guys at Gauteng Radio in Jules Street Malvern fit it for me. Cost me about R500 to fit. I think most fitment centres can do it, it is very much the standard fitment these days

    Any issues with the Bose speakers? I am wanting to swap out my 6cd changer for a touchscreen with backup cam, but I keep reading conflicting things about Bose speaker compatibility. Did your PF have Bose? If so, was it an issue?

    My Pathfinder came standard with Bose speakers and a Bose amplifier. No problems swapping out the standard crappy Nissan radio for the one above.
