Just finished my radio conversion in my 05 Pathfinder R51 from Factory sat-nav/6 disc changer to double din. Was surprisingly easy so if anyone needs any help, please reply or send me a message!

Original setup:


Tools required:
Phillips screwdriver
Torx T10 driver
Trim removal kit (not required, but it helps) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-In-Car-Radio-Door-Body-Clip-Panel-Trim-Dash-Audio-Plastic-Removal-Tool-Kit/122754453633?epid=2216381289&hash=item1c94bc5081:g:J40AAOSwnHZYmgdm
Wire crimp tool and connectors

Cabling kits needed:
Steering control interface - https://incartec.co.uk/Pages/Product.aspx?P=3037
Conversion kit for factory reverse camera - https://incartec.co.uk/Pages/Product.aspx?P=4553
Antenna adaptor - https://incartec.co.uk/Pages/Product.aspx?P=3041
Steering controls output cable - https://incartec.co.uk/Pages/Product.aspx?P=2643 (will vary dependant on what model radio you wish to fit. Mine was a Sony XAV-AX100)

You will need a new radio-surround dash panel. I sourced one from a breaker on eBay who threw in the radio brackets too (also a must!). It came from a 2007 Navara.
If you have rear heating controls like I do, you may have to drill 2 holes to make the heating control unit fit.

And the finished product:


I am still working on the installation of the factory reverse camera converter. Will update again when that's complete.

Nice job! I did this in my 09 R51 too.

I haven't got my reverse camera working properly yet. I tried the adaptor cable you've got but it didn't fit any of my connections. I've got it working sort of by pluging the video feed into my AUX input on my new head unit and manually switching it over when I put it in reverse, but looks like I need to run a signal cable to the new head unit, probably from the rear parking light to trigger it when I put it in reverse.

Even so, the upgrade to a decent head unit is worth the effort.

Update: I never could get the factory reverse camera to work even with the cable adaptor kit, so I went for an aftermarket unit instead for £18:

Much better quality than the factory camera, and was a doddle to install!
