Default Navigation License Key

Hi, I just bought a used 2014 Infiniti Q50 from a repo auction. The car was missing the navigation SD card, maybe the previous owner took it or something. So I bought a new SD card from a local authorized Infiniti dealer. I popped the SD card in, and its asking me for a license key. I asked the Infiniti dealer what it was, and they were unaware. They charged me $125 for 1 hour of tech support to figure it out; which I agreed to. After they inspected everything, they told me I need a new navigation unit, and it will cost me $5300. I refuse to believe that. There has to be a license key available. Its not like the screen goes blank for them to assume I need a whole new navigation unit. Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I also have no idea what is needed, but I do know this: I would NEVER go back to that Infiniti dealer again, without first having a sit-down with the dealer's owner or manager. Pure B.S., in my opinion.

Ask if you can test on of their SD cards into your car see if it works

license key is usually with the sd card. put it in the pc and open the folders with notepad you should see it listed or when you go to the website for the update.

It may be encoded in one of the files there that makes it locked to specific Nav ID. IMO, unless you're an experienced individual in that area (hacker?), just buy it from HERE website. I've been seeing them offer $30 once a year, thus $109 + $4 shipping (+ tax if applicable) would be the lowest price.

I wish it were that cheap. I live in the UK so need the euro version. The quote from infiniti for the SD was £400. A shocking amount. The license key is in the SD somewhere, as there is no data connection. I keep looking at options.

I wonder if the map in the link below is the latest Augest update? Apparently they get updated in Aug?

The SD NAVI cards don't come with the license key printed on them that I've seen. When you buy a NAVI SD card from a reputable source, you have to provide the NAVI ID that is stored in your car's OS. The SD card is then programmed with your NAVI ID and sent to you.
