OK...this is a question I'm asking for a buddy. It's his wife's brand new car...

Any of you audio guys know if it is possible to wire in an iPod to a base-model 2008 Nissan 350Z stock radio?

It is base...stock....single CD in-dash, with no changer. The Nissan dealer is telling them there is no way to do this without upgrading to the stock unit that includes the remote cd changer.

IDK. Maybe one of y'all do...?

Just clarifying his links for you.
I'm not up on my nissan radio stuff, but couldn't the radio have the changer input, without having the changer? I don't see why Nissan would have a different radio specifically for the changer :shrug:

Taken From Product Info said:
CD Changer Port: The adapter uses the factory radio's CD Changer port so if the vehicle has an existing outboard CD Changer it must be disconnected.
Kind of makes it sound like it would work on a vehicle without an external changer :shrug:

not usually, if it doesn't have a changer/SAT/AUX button, 9 times outta 10 it won't have the input

^^^^^^^^Agreed^^^^^^^^

Yep.

This seems to be the issue he's run into.

I told him to hit up the local pick & pull yards for an upgraded factory unit which has the (seemingly) req'd input.


Oh, well. Thanks for y'all's thoughts. Personally, I think he's out of luck w/o changing the head unit. The shitty part of the deal is the salesman told him that it'd be no problem to put the iPod cable on this particular radio. Guess he either didn't know, or was simply bullshitting to make a sale.
