2007 Infiniti G35 Sport: Birds-Eye Nav

August 13, 2007

I try so hard to find fault with our 2007 Infiniti G35 Sport, but frankly, I keep finding more things to like about it. This weekend, I was driving through Malibu looking at houses for a possible short-term rental and rather than taking hastily explained directions over the phone, I at least partly relied on the G35's map. It includes the birds-eye function, which I think is just fantastic. It's possible that many nav systems have this function, but I am disinclined toward reading a nav-system manual that's longer than the one for the car itself.

The G's is easy to figure out, and the birds-eye view affords one a view of a slowly unfolding landscape.

Later in the weekend I needed to find a particular gas station. Again, easy selection for the map to include gas stations, and it even highlighted the station types, so I was able to find my brand at a glance. I realize this is not a new feature. But the amazingly intuitive controls showed me how to quickly and painlessly select just that: show gas stations. Fantastic.
