Cool I probably need to do mine too...last update I did was in 2016, took about an hour and 15 minutes.mazz wrote: ↑Sat Mar 14, 2020 5:35 amI just received a map update for my 2013 M37x. Installation went smooth, although it takes over 2 hours while car is idling to complete the 4 or 5 DVD install. It was about 160 bucks. I haven't taken it for a drive yet to see what the updates are all about. I assume some local roads and HWY and ramps are added with many new points of interest. After 6 years I think it's worth a couple bucks to keep that part current. Still enjoying my 2013. I recently looked on line at used 2019 M37 and they are under 30k. For the most part I guess mine would be 15k. Not much changes and most of the depreciation is out of mine.

I could choose a location using either Google Maps or Apple Maps and everything was there on the Altima touch screen. I don't know about the rest of you, but I would be willing to pay to upgrade our electronics to native functionality with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. I've tried two of the USA Spec add-on systems in my M35 and found it to be less than satisfactory - there were always compromises with both the USA Spec systems and the Infiniti systems. Toyota is selling retrofit systems - why can't Nissan? https://9to5mac.com/2019/04/29/carplay- ... 2018-cars/
I hooked mine up to a battery charger and put ignition in ON position (engine stopped). Have done two map upgrades this way and works great, saves gas too.
Awesome!!! I will do that too. right now the update is at the $150 regular price so i'll wait a little. I see the $99 promo at least twice a year. during the Summer and Winteremm3seven wrote: ↑Sun Mar 15, 2020 5:08 pmI hooked mine up to a battery charger and put ignition in ON position (engine stopped).
