2011 Murano S - Upgrade base radio to OEM Bose/SAT/NAV

I just purchased a 2011 Murano S with pretty much no upgrades. The radio is a base system; orange screen, no sat, no NAV, no Bluetooth, no Bose, no RCA/USB input. Just a basic AM/FM, 6-CD with an AUX 3.5mm input.

I want to upgrade the AV using OEM equip. Nothing against aftermarket, but I want to keep everything looking original. The end result is hopefully a Bose system, Bluetooth (for Android streaming), color screen and steering control panel. SAT would be nice, NAV would be nice but neither are required for my needs.

I know I'll need a new deck, screen, antenna, and control panel(s). What I don't know is what the part numbers are for the new deck (and any other parts) and whether or not I will need to install additional wiring or if everything is already stubbed out on the "S" model. Maybe someone has a parts list for all of the audio components in an "SL" or "LE" model.

Any advice for me? Or is this a fools errand?

Thanks,
~brent

Welcome and Congratz! You are not alone. This will be a costly journey with many components as you hinted. You'll need to replace all of your speakers. You'll have to add a center speaker, (2) in the cargo pillars, trim pieces for the cargo pillars, Bose amp, Bose sub, head unit, LCD, steering wheel controls, etc... Very long list. All dependent on factory harness being there too. At the end of the day, it's very cost prohibite to go down this path. There are many more robust aftermarket solutions for a fraction of the cost that include HD radio, BT streaming, hands-free calling, video/DVD playback, GPS nav, smartphone app support and more. You're in a unique situation that you can at least explore an aftermarket option. I have the factory non-Bose option with color LCD and can't go aftermarket because of the climate control integration.

If you do go down this path, start by getting a copy of the service manual so you can study the system and harness diagrams to get a better sense of the level of effort. Good luck and please share your progress and/or findings as you go along!

OP, good stereo with a sub is at a good price these days and it's an easy fix without losing some OEM stereo features. bazooka has a quick harness release if you need the full cargo rear on the go.

Portable Nav is less than $99 for 5" or 4.3" with lifetime map.

sat usage may drop like a CD being taken over by smartphone.

Just BT can be had for $6 without the stereo upgrade.

For videos, passengers can bring their tablets but only one can connect to BT.

That's one expensive undertaking, if it's even possible. I think the cheaper route would be to trade for a model with the options you want. Sorry there's no simple remedy.
