2013 Infiniti JX35: Frontup Camera

July 18, 2012

infiniti_jx35_frontup_display.JPG You've seen our longterm 2013 Infiniti JX35's bird's eye-view and sideview displays that form parts of its Around View 5-camera system, but we haven't shared this yet. It's the JX's frontup camera, just like a backup camera except nose-mounted. Yup, that Crown Vic you see above is in front of the JX, not behind it.

Whaaa?

All this technology proliferation, so much complexity, grumble grumble whinge grum- waitasec, this thing is handy. Where has it been all my life?

The display blinked on automagically as I was creeping forward during a parking maneuver. This big SUV has a large, proud nose that makes it difficult to accurately judge the location of the front bumper, and this camera takes out all the guesswork.

No more parking by braille. In theory, at least. It's still up to the driver to apply the necessary attention (and skill) to execute a clean parking maneuver, but the camera makes it so much quicker and easier.
