INFINITI Q50 Technology Systems
Where do I find my apps?
Apps are listed inside 'App Garage'.
My apps are taking a while to download to the vehicle. Is this normal?
It is normal for the Infiniti Smartphone Application to take several minutes to download apps to your vehicle. If downloading is taking longer, check to ensure that the phone is properly paired to the vehicle.
How often do my Infiniti InTouch features, including GPS, need to be updated? Does an update cost anything?
Future system updates will be announced when available, but are not required to access new Apps.

The onboard Map database can be updated at an additional cost. Try using Infiniti Connection search services to check for places that may not be available in the onboard map database.
If the system is running or responding slowly, or freezing, what can I do?
Infiniti InTouch uses an operating system like those found on many computers, tablets and cell phones. Like these devices, sometimes programs do not respond immediately and this may temporarily delay system use. In most situations, simply waiting a few moments longer should be sufficient for the pending operations to complete. The system can be easily reset if it temporarily does not respond to commands or freezes. Simply push down the Audio Power knob for at least 5 seconds. The system will turn off and restart.
It takes a while for the system to start-up before I can use audio, phone, navigation, app features, etc. Is this normal?
Due to the large number of features and capabilities that the Infiniti InTouch system needs to load on start-up, it may take a minute for all functions (such as Apps) to be available. The system will display “Now Loading All Apps…” during this time. During the start-up period, hard button controls for audio and climate will become available before startup is complete.
Can software updates be downloaded directly to the vehicle, so I don’t have to go to the retailer?
The software required to upgrade the system is very large and requires that the system be set to a special installation mode. Updating at your Retailer ensures that the integrity of the software update files is intact and completed.
How do I know what software level I have in my Infiniti InTouch?
Please visit your retailer and they will check your InTouch software version and inform you whether you need an update or not.
How long will the initial software update take and how much will it cost?
The initial update will take approximately 2 hours and will be free to Q50 owners. A service appointment is recommended with your preferred dealer.
Will I need to visit the retailer for future upgrades, including new Apps?
It is expected that you will only need to visit the retailer for major system updates. After the initial upgrade, future new Infiniti InTouch Apps updates will be distributed through your phone’s app store (Google Play for Android and App Store for iPhone).
What happens if I don’t get the software update? Will my car stop working?
Your car will continue to operate. However, this upgrade is recommended for your continued enjoyment of your Infiniti Q50 and its next generation information technology system. Without this upgrade, the Infiniti InTouch system will continue to function, but you will not have access to these new features, or any performance enhancements included in the upgrade.
