2017.5 Radio in 2016

Is it possible to do a simple radio swap? I know where a 2017.5 is at (junk yard) and would buy the radio to put in 2016 if it is an easy task. I want the Carplay and newer maps, but I am unsure if this is possible.

Very interesting. Probably would work as long as the harness is the same. Some folks have been doing this with the maxima: https://maxima.org/forums/8th-genera...carplay-6.html

I've been reading more about the Maxima swaps and am almost 100% positive this is going to work. The radios they are using appear to be the same as ours with different dash trim, so if they can swap, we can too! I'll update you guys this evening once the radio arrives and I get it installed.

It's a success! Everything works as expected, including feeding song info to the speedometer cluster.

Is there a specific part number we should be looking for at junk yards to ensure that this is a 2017.5 model with carplay?

You installed yours in a 2016. Do you have any information as to whether it would work in a 2015?

I am 99% certain it will work since the 2015 and 2016 appear to use the same radio.

Hi Serpentor, thanks for the information. But I got a question. How did you know you found a 2017.5 head unit? Did you do a search on the VIN number? Or was there another way to tell the radio is from a 2017.5? Thank in advance!

Two quick questions.

Is yours a stock radio or Bose setup?


Did either your radio or the replacement radio have navigation? EDIT Sorry I forgot that you mentioned that you wanted updated maps, me bad


Answers will help others make the decision.


Thanks and have a great day.

The seller (auto recycler) stated it came out of a 2017.5. I trusted him based on reputation. Others may want to check the VIN of the donor vehicle first.

Mine is the non-Bose system. I see no reason for the swap to not work for the Bose guys, though. Just make sure the 2017.5 radio that you get comes from a car with the Bose system.
