Will this fit on the "SE" trim level?

This link says it fits the "S" trim. Wondering if it will also fit the "SE"

I have the 2006 SE, 4x4, Bose sound system, square coin tray on top.

here is the link.

Now.... where can I find a tan one? All I see are Graphite,steel and black.

Thanks.

PS... What about painting one? Think it would just peel away when it gets hot?
PSS... What about buying a black one? Think it would look cheap?

Regardless of the color you get, these do not look cheap. They are textured like the rest of the dash & really look good. A big NO to painting it, mostly because it would probably just crack and peel off fairly fast.

That's up to you. When I first started reading about these things a few years ago, I was saying the same thing to myself. Then again, I already have a GPS for backpacking that I've mounted in the Pathfinder, so I never considered paying that much for a housing & a car GPS. But, I ordered one of the docks for a 2011 Xterra last week because I'm going to put in a car GPS unit on that. I'm impressed with how well the dock is made-certainly goes with the dash. Now I'm considering getting one myself for the Pathfinder.

Post a picture of your dash if you can. I can't remember which model year it started, but there are 2 docks out there. The one I just purchased for the Xterra was a lucky find, as Nissan isn't getting supplies of these from the mfr anymore, although I don't know which later model vehicles this affects.

Is there anything different between the 06 and the 08 as far as the docking unit?

999q5-ku003 is the part number for a beige docking unit. I ordered it and the parts guys are asking me if I still want it because my VIN reads its a 06 and the docking unit is for an 08.

I don't know if there are any differences, or what those differences might be, but I'd imagine something has to be different between the two part numbers. If your parts place will accept a return, then by all means try it out-you don't have anything to lose.

Would a Garmin 200 series fit in the docking station? It's not a wide screen.

I did some looking around and the exact parts number on other sites works for 2005-2008 Pathfinders.

I went on Edmunds and looked at the interior of the 06 and the 08 and the pics they put up had what looked like the same change pocket above the radio.

I proceeded with the order and will see where we go from there. What I think is "different" is the color. On 06' the interior was called "desert", on the 08" its called "cafe Latte".

They look pretty close so I am going for it.

From what I read the unit will work on the 700 series Garmin only. Where the "difference" is, is with the plug. the 200 and 700 series plugs are different.

Doesnt seem like it will work for the 08 SE.
The S dash is 3 part where the SE is 1 part on dash

Didn't the dash change on the 08 and up? I think so, but not 100% sure...

anyone know who still has this part? all the dealers I've contacted said that it's discontinued. I've heard that Suzukiparts.com has one that will fit but it's meant for the Equator and will match the 09 Pathfinder. I have the 2007

Thanks

Type in search engine:

999q5-ku000 - Entire system (housing and Garmin nav) years 05-08
999q5-ku001 - Dark gray color-years 05-08
999q5-ku002 - Steel color-years 05-08
999q5-ku003 - beige color-years 05-08
999q5-kv001 - black color - yeras 09-11

You will get multiple hits for most of them. This is what I did to loace the 003 (beige) color.

I then went onto Ebay and bought a Garmin 750 for 50 bucks.
