Infiniti has developed a new-generation infotainment system for its key 2020 models. With the 2020 model year updates for Q50, Q60, QX50 and the flagship QX80, owners in selected regions will have access to an array of new functionalities.
The HD twin-screen system, which keeps the name ‘Infiniti InTouch’, will improve the driving experience and keep motorists better connected while on the road.
Eric Rigaux, general manager of product strategy and planning for Infiniti Motor Company, said, “Having listened to feedback from our customers, we have vastly improved the system’s features, intuitive use and functionality. 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.”
With Infiniti InTouch, vehicles with Navigation become a wi-fi hotspot, with up to seven devices able to connect at any one time. InTouch also enables drivers to complete over-the-air updates, including maps, when connected to their home wi-fi network. The updated navigation system will also keep drivers moving with detailed real-time traffic information, dynamic rerouting based on live traffic conditions, and seamless turn-by-turn directions.
InTouch also features an improved interface with the adoption of a new, faster processor for an enhanced user experience for drivers. The new Bluetooth module allows for easier pairing, prioritized connection and higher stability between the user’s smartphone and the vehicle, while the newly adopted HD microphone delivers better voice quality during phone calls and voice commands.
