Map Update Madness

I could have driven on a 110 mile road trip or gone to watch a full length motion picture at the local movie house. Instead I spent 110 minutes sitting in my QX60 like a dope in my driveway with the engine running the entire time feeding 5 disks into the nav system. Infiniti really? You put yourself out there as a premium brand yet you pull this on your high end customers.

How about using a faster processor and input/output USB or other solution that doesn't require blowing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere for almost two hours? Also if you want us to type in a License Key per the 31 step instruction manual then call it a License Key and not a Activation Code on the packing slip.

I hope this update is worth it because it probably will be the last one I do.

Fords do the update over wifi so it can be done in the garage

Wont do any of us any good since we are Infiniti owners. CarPlay would resolve this issue but then the map update company would not make any $. I purchased mine for $161, came to my senses, and returned it without installing it. If I need accurate instructions I'll just use my iPhone but prefer the convenience of using the Navigation system in my $53k vehicle. Just sayin'

Step 20: "Turn on the engine" (for third time, the first two times is to fool with the Bluetooth setting)

Way too many steps for an update. Infiniti should find a way to shorten the update process.

Because if you don't, the car will shut itself down after 10-15 minutes, or the battery will die. You can turn off the battery saver feature in vehicle settings (center display between speedo and tach). But if you turn off battery saver, you'll probably kill the battery in the time it takes to do the upgrade.

Thanks for the clarification.... sounds like it's going to be a fun experience.

You could turn off battery saver and hook your battery up to one of those battery chargers. Then no gas used.

I'll let you try this first - let us know if it works. One mistake and the update shuts off in the middle of a disk operation and then you're cooked.
