#221 of 230 Input so cumbersome!!!
Feb 05, 2011 (9:27 pm)
Just bought a 2007 G35 sport coupe. Love the car! So far...hate the navigation system. What am I missing??? Do I really have to scroll around w/ the little joystick and click each letter or number? And I have to be uber careful to push exactly straight down as I click down for it to actually "enter". As far as I can tell there's no voice command input. Does anyone have any suggestions??? Technique tips??? I'm seriously thinking of taking it out just to gain more storage...
#222 of 230 More tips please...

Also with my '07 G35 Sport Coupe...
1) It stinks that I have to pull over and stop (especially since it takes 10 minutes to input an address). I understand the safety issue, but I often have a passenger who could put the information in while I'm driving.
2) Can it do a "search along"? I can't find it. Like a gas station or Five Guys on the way to my destination.
Thanks--as a newbie, any information would really be appreciated.

#225 of 230 Points of interest

I have a '06 G3 Coupe with navigation, etc. Recently while on a trip I needed to find a hospital in an area 400 miles from home. Imagine my surprise upon finding out that the nav system does not consider hospitals as points of interest or a searchable item. BTW, E911 was of no help in locating a hospital either, but they did send an ambulance.

I've said for some time that the nav system needs to have a dedicated button with a red and white cross on it that will find the nearest hospital and/or ER, and give you instant directions and a pop-up to dial its phone number.
Eventually one of these car companies will figure out that they need to partner with Google to provide this type of info...maybe one of them is already doing it?

I have a 2003 G35 and the Nav started going on/off without any consistent explanation. Been like this for 18 months. I once took out the Nav and took a look at things internally but decided to leave it be. It then worked consistently for 2 months but went back to its old ways of working and not working and remains an enigma. Its off more than on. Curious to see if anyone found the root cause.

There are two pieces of info on this.
1) The motor does not recognize it is all the way up.
You can trick it by pushing down about a half inch when it is about 1/3 of the way up, it may take you a few tries to get the hang of it. Eventually it works - free "fix"
2. Infiniti issued a service bulletin

Hey... just checking if anyone had any suggestions regarding the Navigation not powering up. I have a 2001 Q45. I can hear the disk however, the display not coming on really makes it hard to adjust the AC.
