if it is an apple device you can get a lead to plug into the three av outlets behind the armrest and into that device as i used to do it with my ipod. should work with any device really aslong as it has the correct connections and you use the aux on the radio

The Muranos didn't come with Bluetooth stereo until the 2011 model year. Prior to that, it was only hands-free phone. My Android cellphone doesn't have a headphone jack, so I use a little RF dongle with the usb-c headphone adapter that came with my phone. The dongle I use is made by Scosche, and sells on Amazon for under $10.

Can you pass the link? I'd like to look at this please.

If you have a device that uses usb-c instead of a 3.5mm audio jack, an adapter will be required. The adapter came with my phone, but Amazon sells them also.

Hi, I recently bought a 2010 Murano LE AWD and I too could not play music! The 2010 models do not provide an AUX jack, the little hole to plug in an audio phone plug and allow you to attach a Bluetooth receiver. BUT, it does have INPUT JACKS for entertainment devices. They are behind the center compartment facing the rear seats(flip up little door). My Murano was designed to be used with the old iPods by plugging into a wire provided in the middle compartment, NOT the newer iPhones. The 2010 Murano does have Bluetooth, but only pairs for hands free phone use, NOT MUSIC! HERE IS WHAT TO DO: 1) Purchase a Bluetooth receiver. Many are available for less than $20. 2) purchase a stereo RCA to phone plug cable(2 feet). Plug the RCA cable into the white(left) and red(right) audio input jacks previously mentioned. NOT THE YELLOW VIDEO JACK! Plug the other end of the RCA cable into your Bluetooth receiver and follow the instructions for pairing your iPhone. Repeatedly, press the DISC-AUX button on the audio console until AUX appears on the navigation screen. You're now all set to listen to music from iPhone!

There is an adapter for apple products that goes from the old to new lightning. You plug the large (old style) into the existing hard wired connection and then you have a lightning connection to play your music. Only drawback is it won’t charge at the same time.

I have a similar setup BOSE system but, w/o Nav, BT or the iphone connector. I installed this and I'm able to play music, make calls, etc.

I have a 2012 Murano SL and it does have the AUX cables. I purchased the RCA cable to Lightening connector/dongle but when I plug it into my phone to play Spotify, all I get is a thumping noise coming from the speakers.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Fm transmission degrades audio
In theory, FM radio can transmit about 50-15Khz and perhaps 50 dB of dynamic range (info from Quora.)

Whether you actually get that performance depends to a great degree on the equipment and setup used in broadcasting.

BUT.............................

What receiver and speaker equipment are you using to listen? Unless you have invested $$$ in stereo gear, the chances are hear that you won't hear much difference. If you have invested more and have really high end sound, then a cabled connection will beat ANY wireless connection.

And beyond that..........................

Are you listening to compressed MP3 music?? If so, you're already stepping on it really hard.

So let's consider the "intervening variables" when just saying "X degrades sound."

RCA is analog, lighting is digital so it won't work.
I just order these 2 things from Amazon.
BT dongle with BT 5.3 and 2 microphones,and aux to rca splitter. Mount box near start button and run aux on floor back to rca plugs. I may drill hole so rca cables come out of rear storage box to plugs.
$32 Total.
Good luck
