Having just bought a secondhand Primera 2.2 dCi SX yesterday, I was looking into this last Saturday.
The Nav system was designed by Xanavi Infomatics Corp of Japan : http://www.xanavi.co.jp/
Xanavi seem to be a cooperative of Hitachi and Nissan.
They licenced a Trimble chipset for it - Trimble have been in the GPS game right from the early days.
It appears to be quite a good system - but the DVDs are quite expensive - although they do appear on Ebay.
As it turns out, I have the colour screen but not the built in satnav - would have needed a 2 months later car to get it but negotiated a reduction based on this.
I'll be putting my Garmin i3 into the vehicle - at least I can easily have the latest camera and other POI info that way.
These guys look useful for connecting into the system :

I am considering a Nissan 2.2 Dci SX which mwntioned in a recent message. Can you tell me what is wrong with the installed system and leading to requests for upgrades?

My 2.2dCiSX was maufactured a month or so too early to have the SatNav as standard.
There's nothing inherently wrong with the Nissan built-in system though. You can't add cameras and additional POI - but that's the same for any built-in type. You get whatever comes on the DVD.

Hi know this an old one but just bought 04 almera tino with built in nav, and it's rubbish, or I can't work it, can't even put a post code in it, does anybody do a software update for it, which you can download onto a dvd, and make it more useful
