Infiniti is bringing a new generation infotainment system to the market, aimed at 2020 models such as the Q50, Q60, QX50 and the flagship QX80 SUV.
According to the Japanese automaker, the new HD twin-screen InTouch system will improve the driving experience as well as connectivity, as you can now connect up to seven devices thanks to the Wi-Fi hotspot function.
“Connectivity on the move is more important to drivers than ever – it allows them to keep up-to-date with the latest traffic information, while passengers can stream, surf, video call and more at their leisure. Having listened to feedback from our customers, we have vastly improved the system’s features, intuitive use and functionality,” said Infiniti exec Eric Rigaux.
“It was important for us to offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard in our new models to allow the majority of drivers to connect their smartphones to the car. The latest INFINITI InTouch with dual screens makes in-car connectivity easy and informative, meaning drivers and passengers can enjoy the benefits intuitively while driving.”
The new tech also allows for over-the-air updates, which include maps. The updated sat-nav system will also give drivers detailed real-time traffic information, dynamic rerouting based on live traffic conditions and “seamless turn-by-turn directions.”
Furthermore, models that feature Infiniti InTouch with Navigation also get 3D maps, Street and Satellite view imagery and Destinations by Google. Other improvements include a better interface powered by a faster processor, while the new Bluetooth module allows for easier pairing. Meanwhile, the new HD microphone can deliver better voice quality during calls and voice commands.
