How does the navigation system work?
The Navigation System receives signals from Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites and sophisticated vehicle sensors. A powerful computer then analyzes this data to pinpoint precisely the vehicle's location.
In addition, the navigation system's DVD contains an immense database of maps, plus millions of points of special interest (POI).

The navigation system map coverage in the following Infiniti vehicles includes the 48 contiguous United States and Canada. Note: If your vehicle model was not listed below, or manufactured after the model year listed above, your navigation system map coverage includes the 48 contiguous United States, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii:

Why do I need to buy a new map update?
In your neighborhood and around the world, roads, streets and highways are constantly changing. Regular map updates include critical, fresh details about the road network. With a new map update you can know that you have the latest information available for your GPS navigation system, providing you with more-accurate routing and a more enjoyable navigation experience.
When will the next update be available?
Map updates are usually released in the fall of each year. For the latest news on release dates, please consult with your Infiniti Retailer, or check back on the web site.
How can I tell which navigation system CD/DVD version I am currently using?
The map version for CD and DVD updates is located on the CD/DVD inside your navigation system unit. To obtain this number, carefully remove the CD/DVD, and note the version number (Ver: xx.xx map) near the bottom of the CD/DVD label. The map version for HDD updates is available from the navigation system unit menu. The version number is formatted as xx.xx map.
What is the price of a new or replacement map update?
