Visia reversing camera & head unit

Post by yeoman » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:26 am

My wife has a 2016 Visia and I would like to fit the Nissan juke reversing camera (or an aftermarket one) and connect it to a Kenwood double din head unit. Can anyone tell me the following:-
1. is the Visia wiring loom the same as the Tekna's
2. Anyone fitted a reversing camera.
Many thanks
Greg

If you look at the headunit connector then you should see if the wiring is there.

I recently upgraded my son's micra from a simpler headunit to the satnav connect1, mainly to use bluetooth for music, but it was the cheapest option, about £100 for a nissan headunit and most of the rest was plug and play. It might be easier than you think if you fit a nissan headunit.

I already have the Kenwood unit so was hoping to use it. The Connect 2 units that were an option seem expensive (at least the ones I've seen).

Do you have a photo of the loom connectors to the headunit, there are drawings that show the connections, you can see if the rear video line is there.

Hi yeoman . If your Kenwood doesn't fit there are connect 2 units on eBay starting at around £220 upward and the SD card around £35 which I have
Just a thought. 😀

Hopefully the Kenwood unit will fit, its a double din unit. I will have to buy a wiring adaptor to convert the Nissan loom and antena lead. If there are issues with the Kenwood unit I'll get the connect 2.

Quick update on my double din unit saga, I have managed to get hold of a Connect 2 unit from a 14 plate Juke but it is not a straight swap, the original stereo is smaller so the Connect 2 unit will not fit the dash surround trim. To get the Connect 2 unit up and running, apart from figuring out what wiring needs adding for the OEM reverse camera i believe the following parts are required:-
1. GPS antenna - approx. £40-50 pre owned
2. USB/Aux. connector & wiring £32 (aftermarket parts)
3. Reverse camera £40-50 pre owned
4. Bracket back door - this part has the mounting cut out for the camera (will have buy complete rear tailgate boot release handle trim assy) £30+ pre owned
5. Dash surround trim for Connect 2 £25+ pre owned
To fit the USB/Aux. socket the dash will need a hole cutting in it.

It is certainly cheaper & easier to fit the Kenwood double din unit & an aftermarket reverse camera, accepting that I wont have satnav.
