A client recently came to us looking for a way to safely use his phone while driving his 2015 Nissan Altima. We talked with the client about the different ways that could be accomplished. After narrowing down the best radio for the client we scheduled the appointment for his Nissan Altima Android Auto upgrade.
Mitchell1 Software Saves The Day
We have recently subscribed to the Mitchell1 ProDemand service for vehicle wiring and repair. This service gives us access to wiring diagrams and exploded views of 100’s of automobiles. For this Altima we were able to use the ProDemand service to determine the proper wiring for the steering wheel controls interface. Typically this wiring information is provided with the steering wheel interface, but this 2015 Altima was not listed. A quick look through the ProDemand software helped us verify the proper wiring.
Backup Camera Interfacing
The client’s small factory screen served as not only the radio for the car but also the display for the factory backup camera. The client had asked us about possibly retaining the factory backup camera. Thanks again to our ProDemand software, we were able to determine the correct wires to us for interfacing the new radio with the factory backup camera. The ProDemand software also alerted us to a changing in voltage for the camera system. The client would now be able to see the view from his camera on the new, larger screen.
Nissan Altima Android Auto Features
The component of this installation that the client was most concerned about was the smartphone integration. Thanks to the new Kenwood radio, the client would now had handsfree control of his phone. And exciting new feature too is the addition of Waze to the Android Auto suite. Now the best smartphone navigation software would be at the control of the client’s voice. In addition to navigation, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Spotify and hundreds of other apps are now available.
