Me too. This is my 3rd Inifiniti (others g37 & q40) but if infiniti does not even offer a upgrade like Mazda has done with existing owners, then i’m moving on.

I've heard it's coming next year but I don't think it will be something we can easily upgrade the existing unit to for those of us who don't need to buy a new Q60.

That said, if your lease is up next year and you can hold off making a decision until later in the year (August/September time frame), then it might be to your benefit. We should know in the first half of the year what changes if any they plan to make (they really need something since new sales have dropped precipitously at this point).

I hope its something they can upgrade us to, but I'm thinking of just getting one of the mirroring modules for the top screen since mine is almost useless on a no-nav model....

I have seen those after market versions, but a little hesitant on buying since car is a lease.

If the screens are the same later on this year, dont see why Infiniti cant do a swap to keep the customer happy. Especially if they want my money in 2 years (on a new lease).

This is my 4th Infiniti in a row and my second (Q50S Hybrid) with this out of date, slow informant system and obsolete Nav. If it not greatly upgraded I will switch to Mercedes when my lease is up in 11 months. Don't get me wrong, I love the car and it's incredible looks and will miss it. I will probably end up with a C43.

I work for INFINITI yes all 2020 models will have both CarPlay and Android Auto. Our system is already built on an android platform. If you really want to get picky about who had it first it was KIA as a gimmick to buy their shitty cars.

The reason Lexus, Audi, and Infiniti all resisted is because we each had our own systems that already did the majority of the commands and to pay extra for mirroring didn’t seem worth it. That said the consumer wether the majority need it or not have spoken and all Lexus released this year have it as well as most Audi’s. You have to remember though Infiniti releases their new models after everyone else does. You probably won’t see our first 2020 until late Summer.

As far as swap I work on the dealership level we are all franchises and corporate will never swap after the fact. People think dealerships are making money hand over fist... we are not. With all the information available to the consumer today even with a lot of it being misinformation margins are way down.

Point is in 2017 the average profit on a Chevy sold new was $699 I’m sorry but when an average vehicle sold is $40,000 plus and when you consider a $4,000 TV sold has about the same profit it’s not like 10 years ago or say the 80s when you had huge grosses.

Without the service department and used cars there wouldn’t be car dealerships anymore. What I’m saying is big corporate Infiniti is not going to retro fit and with franchises who didn’t make that call just sold what we are given not having room for error you won’t see that happening.

This wasn’t meant for pity purely informational.

there's been a few leaked docs that said the q50 in 2020 will get android auto and apple car play. No one can confirm if its 2020 model or 2020 calender year. Either way...its worth to wait a few months and see with the 2020 coming out soon. But i agree with aaron, infiniti is not going to offer a retrofit...that doesnt help sell new cars.

Is there an easy option to simply mirror my android phones screen to the top screen in the q60? I know it will be wired, but I'm just looking for a simple and cost effective solution to get navigation and downloaded movies/shows onto the top screen for passengers.

I asked my trainer if it was best to wait for a 2020 or get a 19. He said I should wait but did not say why. I hope this is why. It's only been 7 years.... Lol

from what i understand, the current InTouch system is based on some ancient Android version (something like 2.0?), so there is no chance of it supporting Android Auto.

Ford rolled out a software update making my currently daily drive, a 2017 F150 compatible with Andriod Auto over a year ago even though it wasn't when it was built. Of course, Ford sells WAY more F150s than Infiniti does cars.
