No problem with video on YouTube. Took less than 30 minutes to be up and running. Now l need to learn the software.
I love that this product gave me an option to upgrade my infotainment system. The video for installation was really helpful. There are two things I would recommend for an update:
1) The video show or describe better wire routing and that all wire ends be labeled.
2) Add double sided tape to affix the external speaker or find a way to remove the need for having the external speaker.
Thank you for the review and suggestions to update our process. We will forward this to our developers so we can improve our process. We really appreciate when customers leave an informative review; it really helps us improve and provide a better customer experience. If you need anything please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Have a great day!!
This is probably the most quintessential upgrade for your Pathfinder. The instructions on the youtube video were extremely helpful and I got the system running on my 2019 Pathfinder within 3 hours! Once you set up your mobile phone as the primary device for Android Auto or Carplay, the screen automatically switches to CarPlay or Auto. It feels pretty seamless to be honest :-). Here are some pros and cons:
- Carplay/Android auto on your Pathfinder! It almost feels OEM like
- Switching via the back button on your steering wheel works like a charm.
- Backup camera switches relatively seamlessly!
- Volume UI shows how much you can adjust your volume as you adjust the knob or press the volume switches on your steering wheel
- The external speaker can be a bit quiet if you have your radio set to anything other than 'iPod' (e.g. - fm, sirius). Would be great if there were a firmware update to make it louder.
- You have to switch between the OEM Ui to properly adjust Climate control. It's not too bad, but would have been a nice to have to easily adjust temps from the Carplay view.
- I kind of wish the center infotainment directional pad or wheel could still be used. Maybe a firmware update or a upgrade module could be in order somewhere down the line :-).
Overall, although the unit is a bit pricy ($599 + tax), you are definitely getting what you paid for. You can think of it as adding an extra "smart" infortainment package to your vehicle. They also have reasonable payment plans thanks to the Shop app. I'm just super happy to futureproof my SUV for years to come :-)
I had been looking for a while for solutions to replace the stock Nissan Pathfinder radio. Nobody seemed to have a system to replace it. Did some Googling and reading and voila - UNAVI to the rescue!
The install went very well. The video install is excellent, with one minor exception. Undo your negative terminal so you don't have power and have to listen to the dinging the WHOLE video. lol
Teardown went suprisingly very easily thanks to the video. It was the quickest of the four parts.
The video then takes you through a bench session where you tear the screen apart to apply the daughterboard application. Pay close attention to the cable routing towards the end. That held me up for a bit. Overall, this part was about 30% of the work.
The third phase, the reinstallation of the screen and routing of all the cable isn't too terribly difficult - again thanks to the videos. Pay careful attention to routing of the cables in the right directions. This part too was pretty simple thanks to the video.
The final phase, is putting all the car back together and testing the stereo. Controls are pretty smooth for the most part once you figure out how to get to the airplay/carplay screens and back to the native controls.
All-in-all it was a pretty easy process thanks to the great installation video.
Thanks for a great producct!
Installation video spot on. Install went smoothly. Great to have Apple Play in my 2020 Nissan Pathfinder as I have become accustomed to it in my Nissan Maxima. Not exactly OEM but close enough. Just have to get used to toggling back and forth from my OEM screen to Apple Play screen. One issue is the volume on the external speaker is very low. Have not figured out if there is a setting to increase volume on it yet. Hoping I will not have to relocate that speaker to an external location so It can be heard.

What is the OEM-integrated
Nissan CarPlay Retrofit System?
Our Nissan CarPlay(Android Auto) product line caters to people wanting to add Apple CarPlay or Android Auto without the enormous expense to purchase a new car with built-in OEM CarPlay.
Our mission is to ensure all technology features from the factory are retained.
UNAVI is dedicated to the development and US local service of our simple Plug-n-Play installation, repair, and technical assistance by the industry’s professionals via our Nationwide Dealer Network.
No Need to Waste Your Time and Money! Buy Real Local Service and Trust!
ANYTIME, you could buy cheaper CarPlay/Android Auto retrofit products from the largest online stores than Unavi.
However, the biggest issue with these cheap products is their quality or A/S is poor because of almost shipping from China. At the very worst, you can never take to refund or exchange despite defective issue.
They are too far away from you. Even at this moment, so many customers who made the wrong choice are fall in exhausting and painful.
BE CAREFUL CHEAP ITEMS
Most all online stores and marketplaces are flooded with cheap and low-quality aftermarket Android Auto / Apple CarPlay products that ship from China.
Many customers fall victim to the extremely low and discounted prices offered by these vendors.
To make things worse, many of these customers try DIY installations since many professional shops turn down installation inquiries for these types of low-grade products, knowing that there will be issues associated with them.
Some are lucky. There is a chance that these customers find a friendly vendor, a good discount, and also get good customer service. Sometimes, the installation process goes smoothly and the product doesn’t have any issues. Truth is, most of the customers that buy online from these vendors end up with bad service and a bad product, leading to writing negative reviews and wasted time.
While these discounted products are attractive due to the low prices, often times, they are defective from the get-go. They have an unstable connection to your smartphone, which leads to freezing, re-booting, or just a dead unit. This is due to bad quality control measures.
Sometimes, the product does work as advertise but after using it for some time, problems may start to come up after a week or a month of using it. To make matters worse, it is sometimes very difficult to get technical and warranty support from the vendor.
DON'T BOTHER WITH FAKE SUPPORT
Vendors from China are known to simply throw in a single sheet of paper with instructions that aren’t even in English or written in poor English.
There is no real troubleshooting offered for simple issues and problems.
The reality is that these vendors have never been on the front lines. They’ve never been to an American install shop to witness the process that installers go through to ensure a successful installation. They are not here to really see the problems US customers encounter with their products. Their return policies are so limited so getting a refund or exchange is very unlikely.

※ Android Auto features Google Assistant
Maps ; Let your iPhone show you the way.
The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. And now with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions, and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favorite restaurant, or looking for nearby gas stations.

All your music. Beautifully arranged.
Access all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car's built-in controls. Search by artist, album, or song. See what's playing and what's up next.

※ Available Spotify, Pandora, etc.
Messages ; Reading & writing is now listening and dictating.
Siri can read, reply, and send text messages for you, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. Just say "Siri, tell Blair I'll be there in 20 minutes," and it's done. CarPlay can also play audio messages through the car's speakers or external speaker.
Calendar ; Stay on top of your day when you're on the road.
A Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you're on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tab to get directions or dial in, using your car's speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
