Hi all, I have current model GU ST model which has CD/Tuner but has a button for CD stacker - this has made me wonder if there is a spare input in the back somewhere for the 'stacker' that I assume comes with the upper models. So before I pull my dash apart looking, I was wondering if anyone knows if this plug exists and if so.. can I plug my MP3 Player into it???
Please don't go into describing alternatives like FM transmiters for MP3 players etc.. already do that.. just hoping to reduce the 'devices' I need to play my tunes..

Cheers all..

My Ti has the factory CD stacker located on the drivers side/rear corner , in the pocket located there.

Note though: Mine is a 98 Ti , not sure what the current ones have , or located.

Hi I had the same idea for mine so I went to Nissan and asked and he said yes but I would have to buy a genuine Nissan player for it {surprise surprise} in the end it was 3 times cheaper to go to Strathfield Audio and have them install a brand new Pioneer MP3 than it was for Nissan,
it's always the same when it comes to dealers, thier parts are always way over the top, go your own way, good luck,
Dave

Nissan is full of crap, any stacker should fit in there, factory stereo is made by clarion and it will just use the standard stacker plugs. Go down to your local car audio place and they will help you allot better than what Nissan can

Yeah , dont ask Nissan.

Mine has never worked properly.

Went to the local Audio place. Price for a Clarion Unit was about 1/3 of the Nissan price.

Ended up not bothering , because we dont use it much anyway.

Hi Coyote,
I think you mean an i pod or similar don't you??. if you do then there is a adaptor cable that you can purchase to fit most cars that uses the same cable thatis used for the cd stacker. No need to pull dash apart. Cable usually is around $80. I was about to source one from JB hi fi in Wantirna Melbourne. Not sure abour SA. This is eay to do and you just select CD stacker button on you original deck and wha- la, you have it. The original Nissan deck is pretty averag though ( sound wise) but if your budget is tight it will certainlly do. Hope that helps.

Have current GU ST Ute and I replaced the CD Player with Eclipse MP3 Player - cost about $600 fitted with upgraded speakers plus tweeters at back of door mirrors. Seems a lot but can play CD's MP3's with out all the finicky hang on bits. Can fit about 160 songs to a CD, so don't need stacker. If u can afford it definitely the way to go mate. Probably not what u wanted to know but thought I'd put in my 2 bobs worth. Very happy with this set up.
Cheers
