Aftermarket head unit

Anybody have an aftermarket head unit installed. I'm looking at the Pioneer AVIC-X930BT and wondering if it's going to fit fine and if anyone has run into any installation problems. I'm not tech savy so I will have a stereo installer do the job but, want to make sure it will look good. Any feedback is much appreciated.

I am pretty sure thats the unit I have in my Z. I had it installed and everything right down to the steer wheel controls work great. I am just not sure how it would work in a G. What year do you have and do you have nav right now? If you want to see mine in the Z just let me know. So far I really like the unit.


Edit: That is the unit I have in my Z and in looking at my G I am just not sure how it would work.

Umm, yeah....everything is integrated into that screen.

Think about it--climate control temps, fan settings, radio station...

Anything can be done with money but what you're talking about is very likely cost prohibitive for most G owners.

They don't make a dash kit for the g37.

I've asked multiple shops on what I could go with, but because our stock unit is in l Ike 3 pieces there isn't anything that would work.

Remember, this is coming from multiple custom car audio shops.

Well that's not the news I wanted to hear. Any other options for my G? It's a base 2009 sedan so it doesn't even have Bluetooth which is killing me.

I wonder if you can swap a HU from a premium or nav package. I would look into that.

I know Modme was able to swap his pre 2010 HU to the newer 2010 HU.

I've been on a few G forums a while now and owned a 2nd gen since they came out.
There are no good aftermarket systems that can replace the OEM setup.
This might be something that interest you.

Yeah, but it's $400 before you even buy another H/U... WOW!

And it looks butt ugly. Looks like they modeled it off of a car 15 years older.

Lol not even that... look's like a Nintendo NES controller




Even that one look's better...

There is some impressive engineering behind the idea but the design is a big letdown...

2010 G37 Stereo VS 2013 G37 Stereo

Can someone tell me what if any differences there are in a 2013 G37X stereo Vs an older 2010?

And can you take a 2013 stereo and install it in a 2010 G37?

Hahaha! I actually think the NES controller looks better. I wish there was a good aftermarket option, but pretty tough to do when everything is integrated like that.
