Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: The Alpine in-dash
navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard
Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your
vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of Perfect Factory Integration Technology (F.I.T.)
packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation
packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit
seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. Perfect F.I.T. is designed to
cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior.
Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-ALT48 Perfect F.I.T.
Installation Package allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
navigation head unit in select 2007-2012 Nissan Altimas (non-Bose
audio systems only). This Perfect
F.I.T. Installation Package will not retain the factory Bluetooth functionality,
or factory SiriusXM satellite radio tuners. As always, please consult
Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.
OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-ALT48 Perfect F.I.T.
Installation Package has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select
2007-2012 Nissan Altimas perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade,
high quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to
the dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also
the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to
match the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like
appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine Perfect F.I.T.
packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and
accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.
Vehicle+Radio Harness: This Perfect F.I.T. Installation
Package comes with a vehicle+radio harness for simple installation between the
Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver and your 2007-2012 Nissan Altima. You get all the necessary
harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation
receiver in your 2007-2012 Nissan Altima. The vehicle+radio harness contains one
Molex connector which plug into your Nissan Altima's factory radio harness. On
the other end of the harness is a 14-pin connector which plugs into the
included Nissan steering wheel control interface module (KCX-SWCNS) and a 16-pin
connector which plugs into the
radio connector port on the back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver.
In addition, you will need to make three
hardwired connections between the supplied vehicle+radio harness and your
vehicle's Parking brake (Yellow/blue), Foot brake (Yellow/black), and Reverse
gear trigger (Orange/white). There is a remote turn-on lead (Blue/white) to
connect an aftermarket amplifier. There is also an antenna adapter which plugs
into the vehicle's proprietary antenna port and the standard motorola antenna
port on back of the Alpine navigation head unit; the antenna adapter also
contains a power antenna wire (Blue).
Steering Wheel Controls: The Perfect F.I.T. Installation
Package also includes a steering wheel remote interface module (KCX-SWCNS). For
2007-2012 Nissan Altimas with factory steering wheel audio controls, the
KTX-ALT48 retains the capability to control the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation
receiver's volume, source, and playback controls. There is no additional
programming required, simply plug & play. The 3.5mm connector of the included
steering wheel control interface cable plugs into the 3.5mm remote input of the
Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver.
