AT&T has announced plans to terminate its 2G network coverage on December 31, 2016. What will happen to my Infiniti Connection access on December 31, 2016?
AT&T is an independent third party and changes to cellular networks provided by independent companies are not within Infiniti’s control. Technology in this area is constantly evolving and like other devices that rely on 2G network coverage, once the 2G network is terminated, Infiniti Connection will not function unless equipment replacements, upgrades, or alternative 2G network coverage are available at that time, which Infiniti cannot guarantee. We are exploring alternative network solutions for Infiniti Connection service options, and although we don’t have anything to announce now, if and when we do we will advise customers. However, Infiniti is not responsible for associated costs that may be required for continued Infiniti Connection operation due to cellular network termination (including equipment upgrades, if available, or roaming charges on alternative networks).
Infiniti Q50 Technology Systems
How often do my Infiniti InTouch features, including GPS, need to be updated? Does an update cost anything?
Future system updates will be announced when available, but are not required to access new Apps. New App updates will be able to be downloaded automatically using the connected smartphone during the subscription period and are included in the subscription cost. The onboard Map database can be updated at an additional cost. Please call customer service and select option 5 to get pricing on a new database. Try using Infiniti Connection search services to check for places that may not be availabe in the onboard map database.
If the system is running or responding slowly, or freezing, what can I do?
Infiniti InTouch uses an operating system like those found on many computers, tablets and cell phones. Like these devices, sometimes programs do not respond immediately and this may temporarily delay system use. In most situations, simply waiting a few moments longer should be sufficient for the pending operations to complete. The system can be easily reset if it temporarily does not respond to commands or freezes. Simply push down the Audio Power knob for at least 5 seconds. The system will turn off and restart.
Can software updates be downloaded directly to the vehicle, so I don't have to go to the dealer?
The software required to upgrade the system is very large and requires that the system be set to a special installation mode. Updating at your Retailer ensures that the integrity of the software update files are intact and completed.
How do I know what software level I have in my Infiniti InTouch?
Please visit your dealer and they will check your InTouch software version and inform you whether you need an update or not.
How long will the initial software update take and how much will it cost?
The initial update will take approximately 2 hours and will be free to Q50 owners. A service appointment is recommended with your preferred dealer.
What happens if I don’t get the software update? Will my car stop working?
Your car will continue to operate. However, this upgrade is recommended for your continued enjoyment of your Infiniti Q50 and its next generation information technology system. Without this upgrade, the Infiniti InTouch system will continue to function, but you will not have access to these new features or any performance enhancements included in the upgrade.
Is SiriusXM All Access available on all vehicles equipped with satellite radio?

Does my navigation system update automatically?
A map update is not automatic. However, it is easy to purchase the latest update. You can order your map update online at the Infiniti Navigation Store, or by calling 1-888-362-8837 Monday - Friday 8am - 8pm (EST), and Saturday 10am - 6pm (EST).
How often should I update my map?
To keep your navigation system performing at its best, it is important to update your map every time a new map is released. That’s because up to 15% of roads and points of interest change between each map update release.
Why is a map update important?
A map update helps your navigation system keep up with a changing world. Each year, thousands of new miles of highway are added across the U.S. At the same time, roads change, there are new addresses and subdivisions, and businesses and stores open and close. That makes a map update essential for traveling with confidence.
How does a map update save time and money?
Your vehicle’s navigation system is designed to improve your route efficiency. Taking it may help save you valuable time and reduce fuel costs. Driving more efficiently can also help minimize wear and tear on your vehicle. A map update can help your navigation system perform as efficiently as possible, which may also help you save time and money.
How do I install my map update?
Once you receive your map update product, simply follow the easy instructions that are enclosed.
You can order your map update online at the Infiniti Navigation Store, or by calling 1-888-362-8837 Monday - Friday 8am - 8pm (EST), and Saturday 10am - 6pm (EST).
What are the points of interest on a map update?
Points of Interest, or POIs, are important destinations that you should know about as you travel. Some POIs are landmarks or interesting places to visit, such as state parks. Others are exciting destinations, including restaurants, shopping and golf courses. POIs also include essential services, such as ATMs, gas stations, parking lots and pharmacies. It is important to note that there are thousands of POIs added between each map update. In addition, many POIs close or change their locations, so it is beneficial to have the latest map update information.
How can I update my Navigation data?
All updates are available at the Infiniti Navigation Store.
