2013 Infiniti JX35: Top-Down Cameras A Big Draw
November 16, 2012
We've blogged a few times about the top-down camera system in our JX (here, for instance), so I won't bother you with the details. But having used it a couple times, I do find this feature to be quite valuable. It's one of those things where you didn't really know you wanted it, but once you start using it, you like it a lot.
This is especially true on a large-ish crossover like the JX. I frequently drive my daughter to her elementary school, and the parking lot is cramped and crowded with kids and SUVs during pick-up and drop-off times. With the JX's cameras (top-down and rearview), the parking experience becomes definitely easier.
I'm not saying this is a necessary feature. But for all the poor parking jobs and tentative, multi-point back-outs I see of SUVs in the school lot, I can see it being a big draw to somebody who uses his or her crossover SUV for lots of errard running.
