Our Pioneer bluetooth receiver special is one of the most popular packages we sell as it's an affordable way to add safety, connectivity, and improved sound quality to your vehicle. While the package does cover the basics for the majority of vehicles, some vehicles need extra work, modules, or other install related parts to get the radio to function properly. We've done a number of Nissan Elgrands in the past (Elgrand 1 & Elgrand 2) and are familiar with JDM vehicles, but this one had a slightly different radio and didn't run a factory double din setup. Because of that, the factory radio bracket could not be reused and we weren't able to cut out the radio to fit either as the radio controls span across the center console. We did find an aftermarket dash kit that was made for this car in Australia, however with shipping that dash kit was over $300 and would drive our customer over budget.
Instead, we custom mounted the Pioneer single din radio on the lower cubby of the center console which has roughly a single din mounting size. The benefit of this is the interior retains a factory look and the radio is completely hidden. Since it's a bluetooth receiver, the driver does not even need to interact with this radio to control music playback. The factory backup camera is not affected as that system works separately. The radio we installed was the Pioneer MVH-S322BT, our best-selling single din radio. It offers handsfree calling and wireless music streaming. It also has a front mount USB and aux port for additional convenience and connectivity.
