Wink How do I update Navigation maps?

Hi,

I recently purchased a 2007 G35x. It came with Navigation. At that time, I thought it was DVD based navigation. But the Infiniti dealer told me (over the phone) today that its a hard drive based system. How can I check? He also told me that I need to buy a code from navteq for $99 and then take te care to the dealer for them to activate it for about $100.

Is there a "easier" or "cheaper" way to update the map?

Regards
Nick

I think that's the proper method for updating the navi.

i have an 07 coupe and it was DVD based. THe DVD is located above my glove box for me. Check to see if it's there for you. If not, then you probably have the hardrive version and yes that's what you need to do. don't know if there is a cheaper way...

the 07 sedans are different from the 07 coupes. he has the internal hard drive while we have the dvd-based program. either way, it's relatively expensive...

The first gen G35s used a DVD navigation system and those disks were $200.

no, you have to order the new dvd from that company. i can't remember the name of it right now but it's on your dvd. they're expensive though...i think somwhere in the ballpark of $200 or so.

I too would like to update my 07 G35 but would like to do it myself. I can't find how to do it in any of the Infiniti service manuals that I have and I thought I had them all. Does anyone know what you need to do this?
