My wife has had a 2016 QX60, since new. We have had a unique problem with the GPS navigation screen in the past six months. It has been inspected by two different Infiniti dealerships, with the problem not being resolved, as they "could not duplicate the problem". This is in spite of providing screen shots on her phone as to what was actually taking place on the GPS screen.
This is only occurring on lengthy trips lasting approximately three hours or more. Initially, the detail on the screen begins to disappear as far as streets, scenery etc. This is eventually followed by icons gradually disappearing (miles to destination, speed limit etc). Finally, we are left looking at a blank screen with only the vehicle icon and one road being displayed, even if we are in a city with multiple roads. Then the vehicle icon freezes completely. We are unable to program anything further at that point.
Turning the vehicle off and on does not correct the problem, unless the duration is longer than a few minutes (fuel stops etc). Once this problem initially occurs, it seems to reappear much quicker the next time (45 minutes as opposed to three hours).
On our last trip, the system rebooted on its own while driving. We hoped that the problem was solved, but it returned an hour later.
Obviously this isn't something that I can repair myself, but I'd like to be able to point the technicians in the right direction, as they seem unable to find any previous examples that match our problem.
Thanks.

I’m having virtually the same problem with my 2016 QX60 as kplange with the nav system and other screens. Very frustrating and Infiniti’s been telling me for over a year that they’re working on it. I didn’t pay this kind of money for a product with a manufacturer’s defect that they can’t seem to be able to fix.

The master unit was replaced under warranty in my QX60 but that did NOT fix the problem. On the first long drive after replacement, the exact same problem happened. Still nothing from Infiniti about a solution. Getting tired waiting.

Still no resolution

UPDATE: Infiniti replaced the master AV unit again this week and the identical problem continues. This is the second replacement. They have no idea what is causing this system failure. It's a "Let's try this" and see what happens. At their request, my iPhone was unpaired and my Garmin GPS was removed to see if these non-Infiniti items may be triggering the problem. This made no difference. I took photos of the various screen so that a record of the issues I encounter could be passed on and has been. They now want to have "one of their people" take the veh. on a long drive to see if the problem happens with one of "their people" driving. This will happen Monday coming.

Hi. I had a similar problem a couple of weeks ago. 2016 we just bought a couple months ago, on a long trip of around close to 3 hours the screen did the same thing. We made a stop for maybe 10 minutes and upon turning the car on again it went away. this was the second trip of around 3 hours, first time didn't do it

Sounds like a software issue to me. Have them give you the latest Nav DVD and reload the software. Don’t use the disk that came with your car. See if that helps

Hi I bought a 2017 fully loaded Qx60 from our dealership last night. This morning within 5 minutes of driving my daughter to school the NAV screen started having horrible lines in color.

The screen didnt work lots of fuzzy lines flickering and going up & down like a tv or computer monitor going out.
Radio volume would not go up or down
Defrost couldn't be adjusted

Once I turned the car off it went back to normal.

Anybody else experience this and how did Infiniti fix it.

I am concerned this could be an electrical issue.

2017 QX60 40k miles

Any insight will be appreciated.

Tex

I had that problem on our JX. Were on a 10,000 mile cross country trip and it did that same thing in Virginia. It happened several times when we were near Federal compounds like the FBI facility. Once we left the area the problem went away. The same thing happened when we purchased one 2016 QX60. It did the same thing on 4 occasions and has never failed again even on extended trips.

Problem continued for me, anything around 2.5 hours or more and screen freeze occurred and happened regularly and consistently at that time interval. Lucky for me after car off 10 minutes or so would be back to normal.

On two occasions took video and pictures and upon seeing it they got approval to replace unit. I just recently had my unit replaced under warranty. The guy at the dealership said it was an issue that was recognized and supposedly fixed. Next long trip will see if that is actually the case. Hope it is.

2016 QX60
Had the same problem where after 2.5 hours or so map on screen would disappear until basically had almost a blank screen
The whole system was just replaced under warranty
First long trip less than a week after replacement and ... same thing happened
Not happy, to say the least
