Hey Guys,

Just picked up my Q50 a couple of weeks ago. Overall I really really like the Car.

What prevents me from loving the car is the waiting:

1) The InTouch boot time (Feels like at least 60s for all the apps to Load). I realize I can start driving right away and come back to it a couple of minutes later, but would rather not have to.

2) Slow Responsiveness to touch actions. I always see/feel the InTouch system lagging about a second behind (i.e. between menus, when using the nav system touch screen, when shifting to the backup/front cameras).

I'm not sure if it's a matter of software optimization, or if Infiniti chose a CPU that was way too underpowered. Does the NAV access speed suffer because the maps are stored an SD card?

If they could ramp up the intouch experience so that it feels as responsive as say, an iPad, that'd be awesome.

Welcome to the forum Mark.

This has been a topic reviewed many times here on the forum. A lot of us wish the inTouch would be faster and more responsive. Maybe over time this will change with updates and feedback from consumers.

Other than that, glad to hear you are enjoying your Q50 like the rest of us.

EDIT: Just to add, I think the atom processor was a bad choice on their part during design. But that's just my opinion.

That will never happen unless they complete start over on inTouch. It is seriously the slowest and laggiest system out there.

Thanks!

I'll continue to cling to the small hope that maybe the programming is just really inefficient and they can improve the intouch experience with later firmware updates.

If they did use a low powered intel atom chip, that kind of sucks (if that is indeed the bottleneck). I doubt infiniti would have killed their margins (or the MSRP) if they spent an extra $50 on a much better CPU. I'll wait for the first crazy person to take the system apart and report back what happens when you overclock it :).

Maybe when the Infiniti Apps kick in, it will be possible to update the firmware without having to go to the dealer.
