Nissan Connect – ipod playback?
We are about to buy an X-Trail to replace the
Puke JokeJuke we have had for the last year.
Looking at the mid ranged n-tec model, which comes with the Nissan Connect satnav/stereo/bluetooth phone thing, but notice that unlike the Juke, the car doesn’t come with a USB socket (we leave a 32g micro stick in there with loads of music on and call it up through the connect system). There is however a jack socket.
My question is, if I plugged an iPod into the jack – would I be able to control song choice etc through the screen of the connect? – or doesn’t the jack carry that sort of data?
I know I could bluetooth, but don’t like hogging my phone memory up with music….Posted 4 years agosantacruzsiSubscriber
We have a note n tec (2010) model with Nissan connect, ours has a USB but not sure if the music would go through it, maybe it only charges devices up. Likewise with the 3.5 mm jack I don’t think it would control the connect service; similar to my own BMW when I use the jack cable. Anyway my drivel doesn’t answer your questions so if you leave me to look tomorrow evening ill repost and let you know. If the sat nav doesn’t have the memory card present ( ours didn’t ) you can buy them off ebay for about £15. Don’t pay dealer prices.Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
The Connect in my Navara has usb, Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, dvd player/cd player and hard drive that automatically records any cd you put in the slot – with gracenote that has all the track listings to tag to the album. I’m pretty certain that a 3.5mm jack will not give you any control though.
Sadly they seem to have made the Connect system considerably worse over the last couple of years though 🙁Posted 4 years agosantacruzsiSubscriber
Hello just checked the connect system;
3.5mm jack just plays audio, no controls besides volume, no “next track” etc..
If you can find a USB slot then this is fully functional with music titles etc and can be controlled from steering wheel etc..
Hope this helps.Posted 4 years ago
