Aux plug for a 2005 Altima?

Hey everyone, new to the forums. Just bought a 2005 Altima 2.5S. I know someone here makes a plug for some Altima models, but I don't think that one will fit on mine.

What's the best option for getting music from my MP3 player to the car without replacing the stereo?

That won't work:

then you'll probably have to go with an FM transmitter. Other option is replacing the factory head unit with an aftermarket

There is a hardwire FM transmitter i got from either Amazon or Crutchfield from Scosche. Scosche FM-MOD02 Play your iPod®, satellite radio, or portable music player through any car's FM radio at Crutchfield.com

Basically plugs in between antenna and radio, self installed in 5-10 minutes and has switch to interrupt between FM antenna and the transmitter. Set it to the selected channel, turn on the switch, works PERFECT. no static, searching channels, etc. I would say its your best bet to keep the factory look or not empty your savings on a new stereo.

The radios have A/B/C...i set all of C to the channel it needs so its easy to get to from the steering controls (if you have them).

I use this: Pac AAINIS2 XM Sirius Satellite Ready Infiniti & Nissan Factory Radios

That's connected to my stock unit and hidden under the center console. A Y-cable is connected to it and extended out to the cabin. I use it every time I drive to connect to my iPhone.

How difficult was the installation? Do your steering wheel controls still work? Is there an installation guide? Thanks!

i bought a nissan ipod interfacing kit online. ran about $200 3 yrs ago so they might be cheaper now. i love it. it takes some getting used to but you can run through playlists and artist etc from the stock deck controls. the steering wheel functions still work as far as track skip and volumn. the only thing is the nissan inteface doesn't charge the newer ipods since they changed to a 5v charging system. i had to buy an adapter from radio shack for $20 and it charges just fine now.

if you're lookin for just a standard 3.5mm aux line then i'd say try the first one. its only 30 bones and let us know if it works. like most manufacturers, nissan doesnt make distinct radio HUs for specific cars

On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd say it's a 4. It just requires removal of the radio to plug the wires in the back.

My steering controls don't work to change songs. I can still change volume and switch inputs though.

The adapter comes with instructions.
