- Over 130,000 new points of interest files added such as attractions, accommodation, gas stations, ATMs, and other business addresses

- Now comes with over 8,000 restaurants and places to eat on your routes which are easily searchable
- Nearly 6,000 gas stations have been updated so you will never run out of fuel
Every single car and vehicle model that comes with GPS can use the new HERE navigation DVD (the most popular being the Infiniti G37 navigation update). Here’s a list of all the cars which can take the new map upgrade disc – please note, if your model does not appear on this list then it is still worth clicking the banners on this page as HERE are continually adding new map updates for Infiniti GPS systems.

How to Install the New Infiniti Navigation DVD 2017
Once your new disc arrives you will need to load the new maps into your GPS disc slot. This is not always located in the dashboard which can be confusing for some drivers. Please refer to the list below which confirms exactly where you need to load your new DVD to. You will need to eject the existing disc. When you place your new Infiniti Navigation update disc into the drive you will be prompted via on-screen instructions on what to do next – just make sure you do not lose the serial number which came with the disc as you will need to enter this into your console to install the new maps.
Your disc drive will be in any of the following locations:
- Slot on control panel
- Under front passenger seat
- Upper part of glovebox
- In trunk upper left
- Lower glovebox
- In display unit
In very rare cases you will need to take the car to an official dealer in order for them to install the new Infiniti Navigation Updates for you.
Overview of the Infiniti Navigation System
If you are thinking about installing the GPS into an existing car, then you might want to know a little bit more about the GPS and how it works. It offers turn by turn directions, superb mapping, lane guidance, clear voice commands and even a database of business addresses and POIs. POIs are Points of Interest files and essentially are a database of useful destinations. For example, if you are on a long drive and need to find an ATM it will show you the nearest ones. POI categories include items like places to eat, accommodation, tourist attractions, hospitals, parking and much more.
Infiniti GPS Update – Video
Still not sure whether to update your maps? Here’s a short video overview that we put together which shows you exactly how much money the new Infiniti Navigation DVD can save you in the long-run as well as what’s included with the latest software disc.
As you can see from the video, buying update is more than just getting new maps. You will also have a positive effect on the environment and save money on fuel – because the knock-on effect is that you will be driving less miles each year. There really is no better time to update than now, especially as the new upgrade has recently been released for this year – so what are you waiting for?
Below is a graphic that shows just how much money you can save – as you can see it compares very favorably to the cost you might incur should you buy a brand new portable GPS such as a Garmin or TomTom.

“Driving daily as part of my job, I need to have the most reliable maps available. Not only that, but I frequently need to make pit stops – my Infiniti Navigation System has been updated with all the restaurants and gas stations that I need to make my life easier – I recommend the DVD update 100%.” – Jim Clifford (Seattle, WA)
“Three years ago I ended up getting lost on route to an annual work conference , despite having a GPS built in to my Infiniti G.
