Exclamation 2020 QX50 - Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

Looks like the 2020 QX50 comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Wonder if they will enable 2019 owners to update their infotainment software.

Probably not.

I actually reached out to infiniti to ask this question. one of the reasons why I bought this car is that they said that they were going to do a software update to add it to the 2019s. I also have a note into my dealer who said they don't know yet

So I spoke to Infiniti and as of now they are not updating the software to add Android Auto or CarPlay - this really stinks.

I filed a compliant with Infiniti corporate and will keep on asking my dealer.

I spoke with Infiniti corporate and they said they do not believe that they will be updating the software in the car to add Android Auto or Apple Carplay. This really stinks and annoys me more than anything.

I know that I was spoiled by owning a tesla but this just seems like a really easy thing to do via a software update.

That’s odd. I called Infiniti and they said an update for ACP for the 2019 model will be released this December. It would make sense since the 2020 model is the exact same system. Nothing changed

I'm reading and watching.. this thread.. I desperately want an update as my bluetooth paring is finicky at times however I know it's unlikely to happen for us 2019 owners..

I sent an email from the Infiniti Owners site to their Consumer Affairs department. They responded:

"Please be advised at this time we have no information on if or when a Apple Car Play update will be available."

I hope your source had more current information.

I just purchased a 2019 QX50 a few weeks ago. I also own a 2018 Q50. On the Q50 forum many members claim there will never be a retrofit or update to Apple CarPlay or Android for models made prior to 2020.

Jeffpeds - that sounds about right to me. they gotta have a reason for all of us to go out and buy the NEW 2020 now..

IMO, they already know what features will be added to the 2021, 2022, 2023 offerings but they hold them back so there is "a little something" new/better about the newer model.

Great points. Hopefully a retrofit will be available down the road. Not holding my breath though.
