|How did you install it?|
|Well, after lots of debate about whether the usaspec ipod adapter will work for the 2003 model, with 6 cd in dash changer, bose and factory navigation (it is listed as working with 2004-2006 models on their website), i took the plunge and bought the adapter, PA11 – NIS.|

Even though it is not listed on the website, and has the FM/AM button instead of the RADIO button, the unit works flawlessly. Instead of hitting the radio button to get to the ipod, you hit the CD6 button, and the radio displays "CD Changer." The ipod plays through the speakers and is controlled by the buttons on the radio. Hitting the CD6 button again goes back to the in dash cd changer, and it works like normal. Even though it says it requires a dealer cable, it does not - it comes with everything required for installation.
Bought it on ebay for about $110 - totally worth it in my opinion.

|Hi, great to hear it works. However, can you clarify if you have a USA car or UK car please? I have a 05MY, bose system without the sat nav fitted and I am not sure if your system is the same as mine. Would you be able to descride the connections at the back or better still, do you have a picture of it please? Thank you very much in advance.|
|I have a US model 350Z, bose system without the nav (but with the subwoofer). It sounds like yours will work if it is the bose system with a CD button, and as long as you don't have XM radio. Sorry I don't have any photos of my radio, but I think there may be some in other related 350z-tech topics. (search for 'usaspec' topics with images)|
Hi,I found a picture of the back of the bose unit, I think it is a USA one and it has 4 sockets for connection. I have just taken my dash apart and had a look at mine and it only has 3 sockets, the bottom right one is blanked out. I understand there is a 12 pin male plug on the USAspec kit. I do not think I have the female connector for this.
Could you describe if you used ALL the connections with the USAspec kit please? Thank you.
