Re: Anyone know if we have new NAV disc upgrades with Birdseye view/3D? (ForceReconTrojan)

You never know but I bet it will debut with the S80 and it's new navi hardware.

Re: Anyone know if we have new NAV disc upgrades with Birdseye view/3D? (ForceReconTrojan)

The Alpine unit in Infinity's cars had the bird's eye view <i>three years ago. </i><br>After seeing their implementation of NAV, I never was impressed with anyone else's system and it was a major reason I skipped getting NAV in my R. If I had not whacked my head getting in the back seat or the coupe on the rear glass (no clearance and I am not that tall) and the fact that you had to rev the crud out of it to get it to go, I might have bought one. Infinity nailed their exterior of the coupe - it's a piece of art. They really lost me on the interior with way too much cheap plastic. <br><IMG SRC="http://homepage.mac.com/polartek/S60R/images/infinityNAV.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>- Polartek

Re: Anyone know if we have new NAV disc upgrades with Birdseye view/3D? (Polartek)

I agree Polartek, the Nissan / Infinity Nav system is WAY better from a display / control perspective than the Volvo Nav. Every time I get in the R from my '02 Pathfinder, I can't believe the difference. At least I'm not looking at it all the time, as in the Pathfinder. That would really suck. <p>But the Volvo system does have advantages...it's DVD rather than my last-gen Nissan CD based, so I don't "drive off the map". It operates much faster and you're not locked out from so many choices while driving. <p>However when we bought our Pre-Owned R, while Nav wasn't a deciding factor, it was a huge bonus as my wife and I are often travelling to unfamilliar destinations. And for those of you who poo-poo the money, when you're driving in someplace like, say, Queens, NY, do you really want to be looking at a map or struggling to read street signs? Not I.
