To see whether your phone is compatible (not all are), you can find out at:
It appears that the 2010 Max isn't in the mix yet, but try the 2009 and see what it says.
Regarding the iPod/usb issue - when you plug your iPod into the usb port, it should automatically be recognized by the car, and the Nissan logo should display on the iPod screen. You might need to cycle through the Disc-Aux button on the radio until you see iPod in the top left of the display, but it should do that automatically. If not, you should take it into service and have them look at it. It truly is plug-and-play. Here's a link to the Quick Reference Guide (go to page 10):
#11 of 136 Dual Panel Moonroof
Oct 05, 2009 (9:09 am)
Can the Dual Panel Moonroof be opened, or is it fixed? The web site says that the moon roof covers are powered, but makes no mention of the glass itself being able to be opened.

The rear glass panel panel is fixed. When you press the switch the cover over both open and then the front glass only opens.

THANKS! Just to verify, by open do you mean "tilt" or fully open similar to other standard moonroofs? Looking at the roof, I'm worried that you can't fully open the front glass because it doesn't look like there is anywhere for it to go.

The front panel of the dual moonroof does fully open. It slides up over the rear glass.

The sunroof does both. It opens (front half) overtop the back half. It also just tilts up to "vent". Very smart those designers.
#16 of 136 Nissan/Infiniti and DRL
Oct 28, 2009 (4:06 pm)
does anyone know why Nissan/Infiniti are one of the only US automakers that doesn't have daytime running lights on their vehicles? it just doesn't make sense to me because almost everyone else (Honda/Acura, Toyota/Lexus, GM, Audi, VW, BMW, Volvo, Subaru, Mercedes) has some sort of daytime running lights; in Canada, DRLs are required and Nissan/Infiniti has to wire those vehicles for DRL so why not just join with the rest of the US auto manufacturers and add them as standard? I really like the new LED DRLs Mercedes and Audi is putting on their lineups! what is your thinking and opinions on DRL and why Nissan/Infiniti vehicles don't have them?

I've never found the benefits of DRL (improved visibility of oncoming vehicles during hazy conditions) to be worth the effort or the fact that those lamps will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. That said, they certainly are the last of the mohicans in this regard, especially given the Canadian requirements. In the end, it is surprising that they aren't standard, but at the same time I in no way miss having this feature on my Nissan.

agreed, I don't miss not having DRLs on my Maxima but at the same time I ran into a problem with not having them; I live in NJ and its a state law to have your lights on when your wipers are on; I have an Acura with DRL so if its a cloudy rainy day I don't have to worry about putting lights on since I have the DRLs that are on all the time;
a few weeks ago, it was pouring rain here and I was out in my Max; it was raining pretty heavily but during the middle of the day its not dark enough outside to trigger the automatic headlamps so you would have to manually turn the stick to turn on your headlights; well of course, I forgot this and since the car has no DRLs I was driving with no lights on and sure enough I got pulled over by a NJ trooper and luckily he didn't give me a ticket but he reminded me to have lights on when its raining;
being I have another car with DRLs and now one that doesn't have DRLs you can forget pretty easily to not turn your lights on when its raining; suffice it to say the state trooper was a nice reminded and I will never forget that again when it comes to the max!!!

I just bought a new 2010 and must say it's a great car, I traded my 2004 SL in for it. The thing is, I miss the 6 pack cd player and the 60-40 back seat fold down,,another thing was the trunk cargo netting in the old one, they had plenty of choices. But all in all this 2010 is a real nice car, it turns better, not as much leaning in curves, no pulling at the steering wheel when powering up, a lot better looker too. I had a new grille installed and some painted pin stripes and moved the Maxima logo to under the rear tag, windows were tinted heavy in the back and light in the front. I bought the premiem Pkdg. on the SV model,,I didn't want the Nav. system because I can buy a cheaper portable unit and take it with me when I travel, and don't have to pay a dealer to upgrade it also, when the car is traded I keep it with me for the next maxima!! I also bought the new color "Crimson Black" which reminds me of the old Caddy's "Black Cherry". Now to buy a set of chrome wheels to set it all off would make this unit "CHERRY"!!
