Plenty of tech on tap in the 2018 Infiniti QX60

Cars
[MUSIC] Welcome to a deep dive into the technology of the 2018 Infiniti QX 60. No there is a lot to like about this Infiniti, but there is so much to be concerned about. So let's start with the in touch infotainment system. Everything is controlled here on this center stack with a set of buttons and a dial. There's no control here on the armrest like in other vehicles. But it is a touchscreen. However there's a little bit of problem with ergonomics right. I'm a pretty tall woman and this screen is so far away I can't even reach it without moving forward. Plus this little dial here, it doesn't stick out very far from the dodge. So, you really have to pay attention to make sure that you got a good grip on it. This dial can move up and down but it doesn't necessarily correspond to an up and down movement of the highlight on the screen. So, let say you wanna get from the first tile on the first row to the first tile on the second row Actually get to scroll through all of the icons and it takes a lot of attention you really have to take your eyes off the road in order to this. But the worst part about in touch is there is no Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. [SOUND] So you gotta deal with the native nav system well it's not that bad it's pretty easy to enter your destination and the map is I mean accurate it gets you where you want to go but. The graphics are just really old it's just not very fresh. The system needs a reboot and stat, and when I go into the apps button here, I see I've got a tile for Apps Garage. And when I press that it just gives me all the other apps that I had on the previous screen just in a list form. So it's like why is that button even there? But one of the coolest things is that it does have a driving performance app And this is really more of a family hauler, but hey, you want to see your g-forces and your steering angle? That's cool. Fuel consumption? Yeah, sure, that's there too. Hey, why not? It's kind of fun. When you go into your info pages, you've got every. Everything you need to know about fuel economy and even an eco-driver port. Look at that. 70 out of 100, a solid C student. Go me. And then into settings here, you can customize everything about the in-touch system, but I didn't notice a weird thing about Bluetooth. You have to connect it twice, once for your phone and then once for your audio device. It's just a weird little quirk. And then, in status, you've got your audio on the top and then you scroll through to have navigation, HVAC, or fuel economy on the bottom. But where the QX60 really shines is when it comes to driver's aids. Now of course it's got adaptive cruise control. It will follow a lead car, even bring you to a complete stop and a pause, but after that, you're gonna have to reengage the system by flicking the button here on the steering wheel, does not work with the accelerator pedal. And it's got a really cool feature called distance control assist, which is kinda like Half of adaptive cruise control and that it keeps a designated distance between you and the car in front of you. Now while you're driving in the city, some people might take advantage of that and swoop on in and cut you off. But, when you're in stop and go traffic, it really is awesome. But one of the coolest things is that you can customize how you want your driver's aides to appear and then just turn them all on Off at once. So you can go into the little menu here, if I want my lane assistance on or off I can just select it here. And then, once I get all of the settings right, I can just click this button on the steering wheel and the way that I've configured them will turn on and off. So there's no fumbling around Every time you go on the [UNKNOWN] is also right here in this button. [UNKNOWN] has been around for quite sometime so I'm sure you're going to get an update in the future only [UNKNOWN] at that point we'll have a new in type system. But for now, great [UNKNOWN] bad [UNKNOWN]
