Forget the GPS
By mherzen on
Vehicle2012 Infiniti G Sedan G37x 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 7A)
ReviewThis has good to great handling, very quick acceleration, superb braking.
Front seats do not support the hamstring properly, so somewhat uncomfortable.
And, the ride is very stiff, so you will feel every bump - not for everyone.
My biggest complaint, tho, is the GPS.
You pay all this money for this device, you expect it to reliably choose the shortest/best route.
This one does not (and I have compared it to others).
It frequently gives bogus instructions to change your route, when no such change is necessary or desirable.
My complaints to Infiniti have been met with the usual shrug - canned, meaningless responses.
My advice: us your cellphone - no map updates needed, & traffic incl
Best FeaturesHandling, acceleration, musicbox (ability in 1212 model to put your CDs on its internal harddrive), a feature now gone, due to copy protection worriers.
Worst FeaturesGPS! It is, as currently designed, close to useless. Infiniti needs to fire their software company and go with a known commodity, some standard GPS maker (like Garmin, Tom Tom, or other). In fact, however, stand-alone GPS units are becoming obsolete, with development of cellphone technology. And, the cellphones have maps that are continually up-to-date (no hassle and expense of map updates) and traffic (no hassle and expense of Sirius radio). The minuses: smaller screen, and not built-in (but, incomparably less expensive!)
