Infiniti G35 Navigation System

The 2007 G35 seems to have a significantly upgraded nav-system. It is hard-drive base, and includes traffic monitoring and voice-recognition control of the navigation, radio, and climate systems. It also tells you which precise lane to be in for freeway navigation.

Is the navigation system in the 2007 G35 more advanced (and have more features) then the system on the 2007 M35/M45?

Below is a description of the 2007 G35 nav system from someone's review: "The Navigation Package consists of a GPS-based system employing a 30GB hard disc drive (which displaces the in-dash, six-CD changer to the trunk and contains a 9.5GB partition for user-recorded audio tracks); MP3-capable compact flash media slot (also used to copy audio to the HDD and update the map database); lane guidance, which preps a driver for a left or right exit ramp from a freeway; voice recognition for climate control, audio and navigation; and a three-month trial subscription to Sirius or XM satellite radio, the latter including real-time traffic information where available."

  • Yes the above poster is correct. The hard drive is available on ALL models of the 07 G but it comes with the Navigation package, not the premium package.

    The Bluetooth in my 06 Coupe sucks. Had to turn it off and go back to using the phone direct, (but may use my bluetooth headset soon.)

    Wonder if the problems have been solved with the 07 model.

    Roll
  • The dealer seemed to have misplaced my Navi Map-DVD upon delivery of my new 06 6MT. SHe said she will see if the 07 cd works. does anyone know anything about this? wouldn't it be just an updated version? thanks
  • rollbarrollbar Posts: 297
    I just got notice via the mail that the new version is out. Yes it will work and would be preferable to the now outdated 06 version.

    Changes include updated roads and points of interest the later of which is the major change according to the notice I got.

    Roll
  • Anyone know if the trunk mounted 6 CD changer (Nav package) can play mp3s ?? The dealer I spoke with said it could not do this.
  • kring5kring5 Posts: 144
    it can not. he was correct.
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    Did they tell you what the cost of the update would be?
    Does Infiniti offer details on what's being updated?

    I have an 06 MDX and the 07 Navi update is $185.
    Their website offers details on what states/areas are updated and I thankfully found that I don't need an update this year.

    Hi all.. I'm pretty new to this, so please excuse me if I'm asking a weird question. I have a G35 2004 and the navigation was working just beautifully! Now it won't power up...I had a problem initially with my key starting and I had infiniti replace the problem, all was good, but now the last week or so, I have no navigation. Could it be from the same problem? Or is this a common thing with Infiniti? I just wanted to know before I get to the dealership... Can anyone help?
  • Does anyone know how to delete selected address from the previous destinations; I don’t want to delete all, just a few. It looks like I have to do a reset and clear them all. I cant figure out how to delete one or two..
  • The 3D Building Scale (birdview) doesn't seem to work in the Charlotte market. Has anyone else had issues?
  • mgm53mgm53 Posts: 1
    I have the same problem with a 2003 g35-the nav system went intermitent then would not power up-did you find a solution?s
  • kring5kring5 Posts: 144
    It only works in Major city downtowns. doubt Charlotte is big enough (no offense) but it's for New York, LA, DC, Chicago, etc..

    Ok, who knows how to hack Infiniti's 07 G35 nav system so that an address can be input while driving?
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    This can be done through voice command while driving.
    No hack is needed. :confuse:
  • sizarrosizarro Posts: 7
    Unfortunately, the G35's voice recognition (even after spending 20 minutes training it) is somewhat unreliable. It gets the command right about 40% of the time while driving (likely due to road noise) and maybe 60% while at idle.

    Trying to recite an address, which can be lengthy, is likely to be a frustrating adventure...
  • desidoggdesidogg Posts: 26
    Hi.... I had trouble with this also but IT IS POSSIBLE. When you are in the adressbook, you have to dig through all the menu options once you have selected the specific entry (when your car is not moving) and there is one for delete entry.

    If you still have trouble, send me a mesg and I will go look at my G35 for the exact key sequence.

    Has anyone come up with a may to play video on the Nav screen of the `07 sedan while the car is moving?

    Has anyone had any luck converting from XM to sirius with the Navigation option? My dealer is telling me that XM is integrated into the Nav unit and cannot be changed to Sirius... True?
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    The car can be ordered with Sirius instead of XM.

    I prefer Sirius but went with XM to get the Nav Traffic as well.

    XM is included with the Nav package, but Sirius is an option if you choose.
  • kring5kring5 Posts: 144
    Scottm123 So................. is today the day?
  • sprinkler13sprinkler13 Posts: 436
    Here is another thing to consider...is it really worth the trouble to find a way to convert everything to Sirius considering the fact that the two companies will be merging by the end of the year. I too would rather have the Sirius in mine, but since XM is already integrated and I like the Nav Traffic, I figured it wasn't worth the hassle since it should only be a few months before we get the benefits of BOTH systems ;) Just my two cents.
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    Today is the day!
    Picking it up at 5pm.
    I have my folder here on my desk with all necessary paperwork, and I'm sportin' my most comfy of pens for signing, and even brought my trusty tire pressure gauge. :shades:
    Brought my camera with me too, even if the wife think's I'm completely nuts.

    "Kring5" is a fairly unique name, so I assume you're Kring from the 'other' forum...?
    I'll be posting some pics there, hopefully tomorrow.

    And before Pat comes and attacks me... I know, I know... I can post pics here as well. :P

    I had the exact same thought and hope for the same outcome... I just think it may be more than a few months, but let's hope it's a short wait!
  • sprinkler13sprinkler13 Posts: 436
    I just hope that it happens before the next football season...as much as I like having the MLB package, I'd much rather have NFL and NBA :blush:
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    Having the wife's car today with no sat at all, (traded it in tonight) I had to listen to the Red Sox spanking Seatle on FM.
    Boy, I do NOT miss those FM days. :P
  • jsarrettjsarrett Posts: 5
    Maybe someone can clarify. In order to get the traffic with the NAV you must have XM, correct? Now does the real time traffic require a full xm subscription? Can you just get a traffic subscription? I have XM in my other car, but I do not think I need it on the G with the hard drive and flash card.
  • sprinkler13sprinkler13 Posts: 436
    I'm pretty sure that you can get the navtraffic as a stand alone option...it is just cheaper when bundled with xm radio service. It's like $3 per month as a bundle or like 8 or 9 per month by itself. But don't quote me on it.
