Overview: The USA SPEC PA15-INFI interface connects a compatible
iPod to select Infinity and Nissan audio systems. Its on-board software translates
commands from your factory radio's CD-changer or Satellite Radio controls into
commands the iPod understands. This interface enables the iPod to coexist with
your factory system and provides a line-level input to your audio system for
optimal sound quality. Please consult the
Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.
iPod Charging: The iPod's internal battery is charged whenever
it's connected to the PA15-INFI; charging stops automatically 30 minutes after the
ignition is turned off or the iPod is paused.
iPod Compatibility: The PA15-INFI is "Made for iPod/iPhone"
compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features when connected
to a compatible Nissan or Infinity factory radio (as of 3/4/2015):
|iPod/iPhone Model||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Head Unit||iPod/iPhone||Song/Artist Text||Track Info |
- *Requires Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).
- Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality
results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to
reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If
this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software
update is available.
Controls: There are two modes of controlling your iPod:
- Folder Mode: access three folders
(Playlist, Artist, and Album) on your iPod from
your factory radio
- Direct Mode: all the controls
on the iPod are unlocked, giving you total control
remotely; the radio still has basic controls; track
up, track down, fast forward, and fast reverse
App Streaming (in Direct Mode): Direct mode also lets you
listen to the sound from your iPhone's downloaded music apps (such as Pandora,
iHeart Radio, SiriusXM, etc.) through your factory head unit & speakers. You
will continue to control your iPhone's apps & view song/artist information from its touchscreen.
Note: Your iPhone will need an active Data Plan account
with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. You will also need
applicable music service accounts.
iPod Text: The Artist name and song title text can be displayed
on the radio when using the Folder control mode.
Auxiliary Input: In addition to the iPod input on the PA15-INFI
there is an auxiliary input (RCA) for use with another source, such as a DVD system,
satellite radio, etc. This aux input can be used with or without the iPod connected.
Vehicle Compatibility: This interface enables your iPod to
co-exist with the factory navigation, CD changer, Satellite Radio receiver, and
DVD system of many Infinity and Nissan vehicles; please check the Crutchfield
Vehicle Selector to confirm compatibility.
