Just bought a CPO ‘19 ESSENTIAL. So far so good. Rides nice and quiet. Good power. Wishing it had CarPlay. Came with InTouch Select Services… is it possible to upgrade to Premier? Worth it? This is my 2nd Infiniti. Also own a ‘15 QX60.
Congrats on the new ride! I also have the 2019. With the InTouch services app, I can remotely lock and unlock my doors and that’s basically it. Sometimes it takes forever to do it so I seldom use it but can see how it can come in handy. I believe you’re able to upgrade on the app. There doesn’t seem to be much benefit in upgrading IMO. I feel like the InTouch services and the interface was/is a poorly executed, half-baked idea. It came on much older cars and they haven’t improved it much today. I guess the stolen car locator could come in handy. In my case, my car already came with GPS tracking installed by the dealer I purchased it from so I can see where it’s at anyways.
As far as CarPlay, there is a pretty good solution by Unavi for $650. I meant to purchase on Black Friday when they were doing a $99 installation special but it totally slipped my mind so I guess I’ll have to wait for the next sale.
Thanks for the reply bro. I have owned 4 Bimmers and the MyBMW App is similar but has more features included with the basic (and only?) plan. I would like to unlock the remote start feature thru InTouch, and the ability to send destinations to Nav. This last feature may placate my desire to add CarPlay. Maybe not. 😜
I have been researching and obsessing on rhe Unavi. Their US HQ is close to my home in OC. I missed out on the end of year deal also. Christmas bankrupted me. I will keep an eye on any sales!!!
