Default 2019 NX300 FSports




I recently bought a new NX300 FSports. Love how the car handles and it has plenty of power and torque.

My first mod: BeatSonic nav/dvd bypass installed today 01/04/2019
now I can use every single function while car is in motion, my passenger can relax and enjoy watching DVD too. A must do MOD.

I am definitely intrigued but this mod. How hard was it to actually install? I watched the video and it seems to have a lot of steps and Im worried I would mess something up. TIA.

The install was done in house at beatsonicUSA, took almost 3 hours. The whole front dash and center panels needed to be removed. Not a easy task, I would highly have a experienced installer do it. If you are in So. California, you can contact Erik @beatsonicusa install it for you. It’s a must mod to have!!

I actually live on the other side, the east coast. I dont have a NX yet but I am thinking about upgrading from my IS to the NX. This was just a mod I would definitely want if i did the upgrade.

I want to get this and their front camera module as well just sucks they they don't offer some type of package deal if you get both... sucks having to spend $400 on both right after spending $300 for the remote start module that lets you use the key fob w/o the stupid enform subscription...etc.

Interesting enough there is one on eBay for $100 from Russia... the description is the same as well. Just looks a little different. I'm wondering if it's not the same thing in a way just re-branded/packaged.

This one has a manual on/off and is even cheaper... Hell for $60 it's worth trying just to see if it works.

Taking apart the dash is actually quite simple. Not hard to do at all. I did it when I installed JDM illuminated cup holder inserts in my wife's NX. See picture below.

Here are 3 videos that will help you take apart the NX Dash. Note that it's slightly different if you have the larger screen but the concept is pretty much identical. There are just 2-4 more bolts at the larger screen that have to be undone before pulling out the center trim piece.

1st video that I used: This is actually from Beatsonic installing their same unit into vehicle... Follow this and you should be able to install it with no problems.

2nd Video of removing console and parts:

3rd video of some Russian dude taking more apart. Several of his steps are NOT required, hence why it's at the bottom of videos.


Our dash apart:

Wanted to ask before I ordered. You are able to read text messages and change/add things on the NAV while driving? Do you have it set to automatically enable when you turn the car on or only when you push the phone button quickly to toggle it?

Thanks,
-Nigel
