For that matter the red and green as well.

If so, this may be the issue i am having with the sterring wheel commands.

Thanks, Mike
Same, yes, in the sense that the wires are routed through the factory bluetooth adapter, to the steering wheel. They're not the same as in a "Y-split" going to both devices. If you leave the factory bluetooth adapter installed, it'll still intercept those buttons presses. If you just remove it, it won't route through it. You have to solder the in/out wires at the bluetooth harness to route the signal from the steering wheel to the headunit.

One of them is slightly shorter at the top. (The Nav one)

If u install the wrong one, you will either end up with a slight gap, or the lid for the storage above it wont close flush.

Heres my car. I installed a nav trim but my car doesnt have a nav. I was left with that gap above which I later covered with some aluminum trim that I customized.

Have an 04 g coupe. I ordered the jdm double din kit it should be here in a day or two. Iím gonna be installing a Pioneer AVH 2400nex. Will I need the universal outer trim for this set up? This unit has a the dvd/cd so the screen moves, also where are others putting the Bluetooth mics? On the dash or routing them up by the visor or mirror?

I put my mic right next to the ignition. People had no problem hearing me!

Cool. I wasnít sure where to put it. If that worked out then no reason for me to run it up near the mirror or sun visor. What head unit did you go with?

Appreciate the reply.

This thread is a big help. Shout out to the thread starter

No problem, I had the AVH x2700BS buy pioneer.
As for the trim, if you bought trim if you got the JDM DD kit then you should be cool. There will be a gap in the headunit and din, you'll need those faceplate covers. ($5-$10) on amazon

Just got the jdm double din in the mail today. test fitting. When Iím done and it looks like this Iíll be satisfied. Any tips on adjusting the PAC ROEM piece to get good sound from the Bose? Turn up the sound and turn the screws until it distorts then back them down?

G35 Coupe 6Speed MT with Bose/Brembo/Nav
How much is still valid?

I see the post was originally started quite a few years ago, I'm curious what exactly still is usable, or if new upgrades have been released so we no longer have to modify things so intensely. I assume the JDM and Metra are all the same still in modification but more so the other parts of the install I'm referring to. I'm not sure what head unit to go with either so a little guidance there would be awesome. I'm leaning more towards the JDM double din rather than a Metra since I do have the navigation and Bose. I'm aware I'll have to desolder and resolder the LEDs and swap button. The head unit I was looking at seems outdated even it itself. There is however quite a few options I desire out of the HU. I'm not to concerned about a DVD player integrated although it would be nice. A backup camera option however is a must, might not be installed at first but later for sure. I had heard rumor of new android chipsets that work with OBDII bluetooth scanners as well. GPS definitely is a must as well as wireless tethering to use with my phones mobile hotspot. Voice controls dont matter much although a microphone is a must. Gesture controls dont matter much either but I do need steering wheel controls. Amplified Data Interface to keep the stereo on until you open the cab door would be nice as well. I seen the shopping list from OP listing a few I would need but also seem a bit outdated.

Single zone climate, no nav
I have a unmodified 2006 G35 Sedan with single-zone climate and no navigation. I want to DIY install a 2din JDM and I found a seller who is offering it with a dual-climate AC controller for cheap. Question is - can I install a dual-zone AC controller in my single-zone car? I don't necessarily need the dual-zone to work. I just want to make sure that the pins will fit and the dual-zone button won't fry the car's board or something like that.

G35 sedan w/ too much money in mods
You'll be fine with the install, it won't cause any issues. Congrats, cheap deals on the JDM faceplates are becoming more and more rare.

The shopping list is still completely usable, there haven't been any real major changes since Scosche brought out their DDin trim kit a while back, otherwise, the parts listed are the same. They don't need to update things for old cars, they just keep them around.

There are some headunits that don't require the steering wheel adapter anymore, but they're still the exception, rather than the rule.

Just about any android phone since 2005 can connect via an ELM327-equipped bluetooth adapter with Torque or similar apps. GPS on the headunits is generally a waste these days since phones have better, constantly updated maps with traffic via stuff like Waze. The stereo itself doesn't know when you open the door, and our cars don't keep power to the accessories with the car open, so you'd need to wire up a timed relay to the door sensor to get that type of function on the radio.
