The automaker's new infotainment system, dubbed InTouch, also debuted in the dashboard of the new sedan. The system uses two touch screens to split the load. Infiniti thinks it will be easier to use and more intuitive. What do you think?

This looks much better than Cadillac's CUE system and the dual screes make sense as opposed to what Honda did with the new Accord's dual screens. The flow is also very organic instead of the afterthought that is the screen in the Mercedes CLA.

the way that technology is going i saw this coming. Seeing all the smartphones and tablets with touchscreen was just the first of it. Now touchscreens are even on fridges. This will help from wear and tear of conventional buttons. Usually theres white lettering that tend to wear off after alot of use.

I think I like it. I can definitely see the advantages of having one screen constant and focused on one thing and then having another screen that lets you navigate through other options. I think this might be the way of the future and it seems to be making its way through the Japanese automakers' design.

It also allows for better ergonomics where your fingers can stay low operating the screen and operating the dial near the shifter and your eyes can stay high on a navigation screen instead of having to keep your eyes and fingers high on the same level of height.

Im not sure if it has a feature to download apps but it does have a google calendar. So they are trying to make it nice system to incorporate convenience as well. And although this might be expensive but if it had internet service that would be great too.

I'm a little concerned.

Firstly, I noticed that there are no more buttons on the door for 2-person memory seating as seen in the current model.

I'm gonna assume that the memory seating options are now being controlled via the InTouch System...? I guess we'll have to wait to find out exactly all the things the InTouch system will provide.

I will cry if they took out the memory steering/seating.. :(

I would assume its safe to say they didn't get rid of the memory seat settings. Since it looks like there are different "profiles" that each profile would include not only the driving dynamics but also the memory seats, steering wheel, and mirrors. I'm sure there is a way to personalize each setting so that its read every time you enter the car via the key fob, kind of like the G37, but more advanced.

Seems a bit like overkill to me. Do we really need more screens? I feel one should be enough. I guess I'll have to wait until there are hands on review or I get to see one in person.

If they really want to try something new, they should try implementing an hud on the windshield. I remember seeing one company trying it out but can't think who it is right now.

I believe you're talking about BMW. From my experience they were the first to do this. When i went car shopping in 06, I remember seeing the E60 BMW M5 with heads up display, as well as the M6.

I agree that Infiniti should add the HUD that is found on BMW models. They also should include Apple's eyes free technology to help control the apps a driver is not distracted.

Where will we download apps from? Blackberry (RIM) or Apple? I've read the InTouch system is from RIM.

I think Infiniti thought it through before actually making it. It makes sense though to have a screen specifically just for the temperature control and one for media so you dont get too mixed up and buttons are a thing of the past. Just look at blackberry they even went full on touch screen. So with the trend now its only a matter of time till every one follows.

Nope. Nissan did it with the Bluebird (the name in Australia and New Zealand, forget the name in the US) in the 90s.

Nissan Bluebird (U13) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It wasn't very good from the reviews I read at the time. I recall one review called it an "unnoticed reflection in the windscreen".
