I have address book and some other personal/sensitive information stored in the car computer.

Would it be possible to lock/secure it during service/maintenance?

Hi mprasetya. I don't know of any way to temporarily secure information stored in the info-tainment system of your QX60. Also consider the personal data stored in the on-board Event Data Recorder or "black box" if you are ever in an accident, e.g., accurate time/date of occurrence, speed of vehicle, % of throttle applied at the time, braking, even who was sitting where (sensors are under your seats). All of this and much, much more is downloadable by investigators and insurance folks. Kinda fun to ponder the ramifications!

don't think so

I don't think you have too much to be worried about in terms of the address book.

They wont be browsing through your address book

In terms of personal info.

Why keep it in the cars system?

The downside is that insurance might make it a requirement to make sure the black box is reading at all times, leaving you with no choice but to use it.

Straight answer = no.

What could you possibly have stored that's so sensitive? It doesn't copy your address book unless you force it to. It doesn't associate addresses with names. Some people consider their "home" address sensitive because some idiot on the interwebs told them that if their car was stolen the thief could have the car take him to "home" if home is programmed into the Navi and he could expect home to be vacant since owner doesn't have a car. However, said idiot on the interwebs forgot that in the glovebox right next to the navi, there's a registration with your home address on it. What's the diff?

You can delete all the data out of your Navi system if you want to. I do it all the time on used cars that customers trade in.

That is true.. Either way they can trace the car back to the owner if they wanted to.
Registration is just sitting there afterall.. And if not. You plates are also registered to a name and address.

You can't lock the nav system but If it is just the address book that you are worried about you can transfer it to a usb stick and delete your book in the car and then when you get it back from service you can load them back up...

To do so you would go to "settings"
"navigation"
then select "address book"
and scroll down to "transfer address book"
and then select "download to usb" or download from usb"

We do this at our dealership so our customers when they get new Infiniti's so don't have to re-enter all the addresses in there new car...
