Questions about Nissan Navigation Systems

A satellite navigation system or an automotive navigation system uses a GPS navigation device to provide detailed directions to the driver. The unit is preloaded with maps that feature a comprehensive road database. The Nissan navigation system boasts an up-to-date database that contains the latest roads, points of interest and updated addresses. Listed below are questions on various Nissan navigation system issues that are answered by Experts.

Why is the navigation system, backup camera, radio controls, and ac heater controls not functioning on a 2005 Nissan Armada LE ?

In most cases this happens when there is a faulty body control module or a problem with the wiring. To check this remove the trim panel under the driver’s side dash, then the steering wheel column under cover and check the BCM wiring on the right of the steering column. Make sure that you have clean and tight contacts without broken pins. If after checking all the wiring the problem still persists then you need to connect the vehicle to a scan tool and check the BCM for faults. The scan tool will help you isolate the BCM fault and you can replace the part accordingly.

What would cause a 2006 Nissan navigation system to be completely blank?

The navigation system has its own control unit and can perform a self-diagnosis to determine if there are any issues with it. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. This will do a hard reset of the system and may bring the navigation system back to life. Sometimes there are so many frequencies in the air, while receiving on one, it may collide with another and knock out the screen and keep you locked out. You can also check the fuses that are inside the vehicle and under the hood near the battery. You need to pull out the unit and see if it is getting power and ground. The unit may have shorted out and failed internally.

Can a touch screen navigation system be installed in a 2010 Nissan Murano S?

For that particular model one will not be able to remove the dash screen and install a navigation system. The factory navigation system is different and the dash harness and control units are different and will not switch over to the Murano. Also, there are no aftermarket units like the factory unit that will fit into your Murano.

How does one update a Nissan navigation system when moving to another country?

To update a Nissan navigation system replace the DVD that is located under the passenger seat and call up any Nissan dealership and order a new disc for that particular area.

Why does my Nissan navigation system not show my location?

Usually if you have 3D view it changes the settings. You need to go into setting, select navigation, and scroll all the way down to reset the settings back to default. Once you complete this, the issue should be corrected. If this does not work, there could be a problem with the antenna. The antenna reads the satellites to determine the position.

Driving with an updated Nissan navigation system will ensure that you save time taking unnecessary detours. If you are experiencing problems with your Nissan navigation system you should contact an Expert.
