Has anyone sucessfully connected the PAC black box IR transmitters to the steering wheel controls? Everything I have read says that the Xterra's steering wheel controls will not integrate with the normal PAC black boxes which take resistor/switch inputs and converts them to an IR signal for the new deck.

I like my fingertip controls but want to slim that double DIN unit down to a single DIN with a video display.

If I can't get them to work I'll pull the darn things out and put a flat panel one the left side of the steering wheel.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not exactly sure what you are talking about with the IR transmitters, but I installed a Pioneer AVIC-Z2 NAV System and used a PAC SWI-PS for the steering wheel controls. They work for the most part now, I just have to go in and reprogram them every once in awhile.

The IR transmitter is how the PAC "talks" to the AVIC.

How about one of these? http://www.pac-audio.com/products/productsCatagory.asp?mmSearch=Steering Wheel Interface

I know I've seen a few of the first gen X's using them with good results.
Not listed as Xterra but under Frontier/Xterra - for some reason Crutchfield says that the PAC interfaces don't worth with the next generation Xterra's. Here PAC stated they do:
