I hope not. I get people asking about it periodically. I have to explain to them why it makes zero sense to pay Infiniti for a hotspot that's mounted to your car and only useful when you're in your car and it is turned on. Whereas you can go to any carrier and buy a small hotspot device that's good in your car, in your hotel room, your house, etc. They cost the same and do the same thing. Just one is portable and one isn't. So why pay Infiniti for this?
We didn't have a choice. Our 2017 came with it preinstalled. But I can see us using it since we do 4 hour road trips from VA to FL. Just buy what we need as needed. With 4 kids, we'll go through 5 GB fast.
But we'll see. Don't really need it. Just didn't have an option.
Mine also came installed with 3 months free. Seems faster than phone hotspot...? But had a 'system wide outage' over a month ago and still not working. No one answers the phone or responds to e-mails. Chat unavailable. Nissan/Infiniti knows nothing. Can't recommend that....!
