I spoke to an Infiniti service rep and he told me that it is true, you can't retrofit the 2007 to have the ipod integration similar to the 2008. However, he said you could do it after market. So I spoke to someone at Al and Ed's Autosound and they told me it would be around $350 for the part and installation. It would be controlled through the cd player controls, but I'm not sure how much "information" would be translated to the screen??
Here's the link:
Has anyone out there attempted this yet??

For those who've run into iPod problems, I just thought I'd toss out what I've learned with my 08 G35x w/Nav. My 8Gb 3G Nano had problems right from the start - battery drain with the car turned off and it would lock up when I disconnected it. So, I upgrade it to 1.1.3. That didn't help at all.
I also have an 160Gb Classic. With 1.0.3 on it, it works perfectly. I can leave it connected overnight without any battery drain. In fact, I haven't had any problems with it. I'm leary of putting 1.1.3 on it, so I'll probably hold off as long as I can on that.
I was kind of bummed about the Nano not working, as I was planning on keeping it in the car.

Just an update...
This morning, I drove in to work with my Nano in use. When I parked, I switched to the radio, turned the radio off, then turned the car off. After unplugging the nano, it appeared to be locked up (connected screen), as usual. I tossed it in my my bag and went on in to work. After an hour, I remembered that I needed to reset the Nano. At first, the screen still said conneected, but as soon as I pressed the center of the wheel, the now playing screen displayed. It had been playing the whole time. Apparently, the Nano isn't receiving a signal to stop/pause, so it was still doing it's thing. It looks like that is the cause of the battery drain when it is left connected. But I can't think of a way to diagnose whether the stop/pause signal is not being sent or if it's the Nano that is simply not recognizing the signal. I suspect that it is the Nano, though, as my Classic has never had a problem. I always make sure that both "locks" engage on the cable, so I know that isn't the problem, and the Nano's port is clean.
I forgot to mention in my earlier post that I have the premium package, so I'm using the dedicated iPod port/cable.
#318 of 365 Play DVD's In-Dash?
Aug 16, 2008 (4:22 pm)
I've read here that you're supposed to be able to watch DVD's on the in-dash NAV/GPS head....car in park, parking brake engaged. I'm not having any luck with this, does anyone have a suggestion?
I have an '08 G35x, with Premium and NAV.

I dont think you can watch DVD's in the dash....but you can watch movies stored on your ipod or any portable DVD player by connecting the Yellow, Red, White cables in the center arm rest...
#320 of 365 Ipod Integration?
Aug 17, 2008 (2:02 pm)
Hello all. I have an '07 G35 Journey Sedan. I noticed the 2008 models come with a better ipod integration where you can control the ipod via the touchscreen and steering wheel controls. Since it is essentially the same user interface on the touchscreen; is there any way to add the same Apple 30 pin connector integration that the 2008 model has, to my 2007 model? If not, is there any aftermarket solution which will allow to control the ipod through my touchscreen? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.
#321 of 365 2008 Infiniti G35X A/V screen does not display every time
Aug 29, 2008 (8:44 pm)
The A/V display on my 2008 Infiniti G35X fails to display on occasion when I start the car. The radio, A/C-Heater, and other accessories work, but the screen does not display. I must stop the engine and restart the car (sometimes more than once) to get it to come on. The dealer has replaced the A/V unit twice and the problem still persists. Has anyone had the same problem?

"The car must be in park with the E-Brake set for video to appear." Thanks to this post I was able to get the videos on my iPod Nano to play but this has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Who is going to sit in their car with the motor running, the car in park and the E-Brake engaged just to play a video on their Nano. Infiniti might as well have left this ability out if this is what it takes to play it.

"I've read here that you're supposed to be able to watch DVD's on the in-dash NAV/GPS head....car in park, parking brake engaged" Alang4 I want you to think about what you just posted and ask yourself. Why are you in a car, parked with the parking brake engaged trying to watch a DVD?
#324 of 365 iPod Nano 4th Generation
Oct 01, 2008 (8:23 am)
Does anyone know if the new iPod Nano 4th generation is compatible with a 2008 G35? The new Nano was released last month (September), and I'm thinking of buying one primarily for use in my G35. I called Inifiniti and they didn't have any specific information on compatibility testing for the new iPod model.
