INFINITI VOICE RECOGNITION
INFINITI Voice Recognition allows handsfree operation of the navigation system
and other systems equipped on this
vehicle, such as the phone, vehicle information and audio. INFINITI Voice Recognition can be used in one of two selectable
modes, Standard Mode or Alternate Command Mode.
In Standard Mode, the commands that are
available are always shown on the display
and announced by the system. To perform
operations, simply follow the prompts
given by the system.
For advanced operations, change to Alternate Command Mode. When this mode is
active, an expanded list of commands can
be spoken after pushing <TALK
> on the
steering wheel, and the voice command
menu prompts are turned off. Note that in
this mode the recognition success rate may
decrease because there are more commands available and more ways of speaking each command. Otherwise, it is
recommended that Alternate Command
Mode be turned off and Standard Mode
be used for the best recognition performance.
INFO:
. For voice recognition system operations
related to the phone, audio or vehicle
information systems, refer to the vehicle
Owner’s Manual.
. When the system language is set to
“Français” (French) or “Español” (Spanish),
the available commands and functions may
differ from those that are available when
using the system in English.
BEFORE STARTING
To get the best recognition performance
from INFINITI Voice Recognition, observe
the following points.
. The interior of the vehicle should be as
quiet as possible. Close the windows to
eliminate the surrounding noises (traffic noise, vibration sounds, etc.), which
may prevent the system from correctly
recognizing the voice commands.
USING VOICE RECOGNITION SYSTEM
. The voice recognition system cannot be
operated when the retractable hard top
is not closed (for G37 Convertible only).
Initialization
. Wait until the tone sounds before
speaking a command.
When the ignition switch is pushed to the
ON position, INFINITI Voice Recognition is
initialized, which may take up to one
minute. When completed, the system is
ready to accept voice commands. If <TALK
> is pushed before the initialization
completes, the display will show the
message: “System not ready.”
. Speak in a natural conversational voice
without pausing between words.
. If the air conditioner is set to “AUTO”,
the fan speed is automatically lowered
so that commands can be recognized
more easily.

8. The system announces, “Dial or Change
Number?”. Speak “Dial”.
. The INFINITI voice recognition system is not
limited to recognizing phone numbers of
only 7 or 10 digits. To dial a number in a
format other than the 3-3-4 digit grouping,
use the “International Call” command.
. If “Change Number” is spoken during phone
number entry, the system will automatically
request that the number be repeated using
the 3-3-4 format. In this case, speak the
area code first and then follow the prompts.

. [Use Time Restricted Roads]:
Uses any roads subject to time restrictions.
. [Use Statistical Traffic Information]:
Uses statistical traffic information that
is stored in the map data.
. [Use Real Time Traffic Information]:
Uses the latest traffic information
received via the XM broadcast.
. [Use Avoid Area Settings]:
Enables the avoid area setting.
. [Use Ferries]:
Includes the use of ferries.
. [Use Learned Routes]:
Uses the roads that are most frequently
traveled with the help of self-learning
technology.
. [Auto Reroute]:
If the vehicle deviates from the suggested route, the system automatically
recalculates a route that leads the
vehicle to the suggested route.
INFO:
. The recalculated route may not be the
shortest route because the system prioritizes roads that are easy to drive for safety
reasons.
. If route conditions are set from [Route
Settings], all sections in the route are
subject to the same route conditions even
though different route conditions have been
set for different sections in [Edit/Add to
Route].
. If [Use Time Restricted Roads] is deactivated, the system calculates a route without
any consideration of the regulations concerning the time or day of the week.
Therefore, the suggested route may include
a road subject to traffic regulations concerning the time or day of the week. When
driving along the route, always follow all
traffic regulations regardless of whether
[Use Time Restricted Roads] is set to on or
off.
. If the system cannot calculate any alternative routes, it displays the previous route.
. If the vehicle greatly deviates from the
suggested route, the system calculates a
new route.
. Statistical traffic information is based on
previous traffic data. When the traffic situation rapidly changes due to unexpected
accidents, construction work, traffic restrictions, emergencies, etc., the prediction
accuracy of the system may be reduced.
. Traffic jam information displayed on the
map screen is not statistical traffic information.
. When [Use Statistical Traffic Information] is
turned on, the system may lead to a road
where a traffic jam occurs or to a detour
even though the shortest route does not
have a traffic jam.
. Even when [Use Real Time Traffic Information] is turned on, if traffic information has
not been provided for the area, sometimes it
is possible that a detour will not be
indicated in a location where a traffic jam
occurs.
. The system may not lead to a detour if traffic
closure or a traffic jam occurs far from the
present location.
. The system calculates to reduce the time
required for the entire route from the start to
the destination. If there are no appropriate
routes, the system may lead to a route
where a traffic jam occurs instead of leading

VIEWING AVAILABLE TRAFFIC INFORMATION
XM NavTraffic® information is a subscription service offered by XM® Satellite Radio.
This service provides real-time information
regarding traffic flow, accidents, road
construction and other incidents, where
available.
XM NavTraffic® combines information from
commercial and public traffic data providers including government departments of
transportation, police, emergency services,
road sensors, cameras and aircraft reports.
The traffic information is broadcast to the
vehicle by the XM® satellites. Available
traffic information on the route the driver

are shown on the navigation system:
* Unscheduled traffic data for example,
accidents and disabled vehicles.
* Scheduled traffic data, for example road
construction and road closures.
* Traffic flow information (rate of speed
data).

INFINITI VOICE RECOGNITION
INFINITI Voice Recognition allows handsfree operation of the navigation system
and other systems equipped on this
vehicle, in one of two modes, Standard
Mode or Alternate Command Mode. Standard Mode allows the operation of Navigation, Phone, Audio, Information and Help.
The commands that are available are
always shown on the display and announced by the system. To perform operations, simply follow the prompts given by
the system. In Standard Mode, hands-free
operation of Change map view, Route
selection and Bluetooth Audio, etc. is not
available through Voice Recognition.
Alternate Command Mode allows advanced
operations. When this mode is active, an
expanded list of commands can be spoken
after pushing <TALK
>, and the voice
command menu prompts are turned off.
Note that in this mode the recognition
success rate may be affected because the
number of available commands and ways
of speaking each command are increased.
Otherwise, it is recommended that Alternate Command Mode be turned OFF and
Standard Mode be used for the best
recognition performance.
“Alternate command mode”
(page 9-9)
INFO:
. To improve recognition success when Alternate Command Mode is active, try using the
Speaker Adaptation function available in

Operating tips
How to speak numbers
. Speak a command after the tone.
INFINITI Voice Recognition requires a certain way to speak numbers when giving
voice commands. Refer to the following
examples.
. Commands that are available are always shown on the display and spoken
through voice menu prompts. Commands other than those that are displayed are not accepted. Follow the
prompts given by the system.
. If the command is not accepted, the
system announces, “Please say again”.
Repeat the command in a clear voice.
. Push <BACK> once to return to the
previous screen.
. To cancel the command, push and hold
<TALK
>. The message, “Voice canceled” will be announced.
. Push <TALK
> to stop the voice
prompt and give the command at once.
Remember to wait for the tone before
speaking.
. To adjust the volume of the system
feedback, push the volume control
buttons <+> or <−> on the steering wheel
or use the audio system volume control
knob while the system is making an
announcement.
General rule:
Only single digits 0 (zero) to 9 can be used.
(For example, if speaking 500, “five zero
zero” can be used, but “five hundred”
cannot.)
Examples:
1-800-662-6200
“One eight zero zero six six two six two
zero zero”
Improving Recognition of Phone numbers:
Recognition of phone numbers can be
improved by speaking the phone number
in 3 groups of numbers. For example, to
call 800-662-6200, speak “Eight Zero
Zero” first, and the system will then ask
to speak the next three digits. Then, speak
“Six Six Two”. After recognition, the
system will then ask to speak the last 4
digits. Speak, “Six Two Zero Zero”. Using
this method of phone digit entry can
improve recognition performance.
INFO:
For best recognition, speak “zero” for the
number “0” and “oh” for the letter “o”.
VOICE COMMAND EXAMPLES
To use the voice recognition function,
speaking one command is sometimes
sufficient, but at other times it is necessary
to speak two or more commands. As
examples, some additional basic operations that can be performed by voice
commands are described here.
Example 1: Placing call to phone
number 800-662-6200

is recommended for improved recognition.
“How to speak numbers” (page 9-14)

limited to recognizing phone numbers of
only 7 or 10 digits. To dial a number in a
format other than the 3-3-4 digit grouping,
use the “International Call” command.
. If “Change Number” is spoken during phone
number entry, the system will automatically
request that the number be repeated using
the 3-3-4 format. In this case please speak

10. General system information
FEATURES OF THIS NAVIGATION SYSTEM
ROUTE GUIDANCE
The main features of the INFINITI Navigation System are visual guidance and voice
guidance in selected map coverage areas.
Utilizing a network of GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites, the INFINITI Navigation System tracks the location on the map
and navigates to a preferred location.
Once the destination is set in a map
coverage area, the INFINITI Navigation
System will calculate a route from the
current location to the destination. The
real-time map display and turn-by-turn
voice guidance leads the driver along the
route. These features can be especially
helpful when driving to unfamiliar locations.
The system may be unable to set a
destination and/or calculate a route when
the destination is outside the map coverage area. Additionally, voice guidance may
not be available if the destination is
outside the map coverage area. For more
information on how to set a destination,
refer to section 4.
PLACES OF INTEREST (PLACES) DIRECTORY
The INFINITI Navigation System offers an
extensive places of interest (Places) directory in map coverage areas. This directory
includes a wide variety of destinations
ranging from gas stations, ATMs, and
restaurants to casinos, ski resorts, shopping centers and businesses. A point of
interest can be searched by category, name
or phone number. After selecting a destination, the INFINITI Navigation System will
calculate a route to that destination.
The Places directory has many uses. For
example, the directory can be sorted by the
various types of restaurants near the
current location. If an ATM or gas station
is needed, the INFINITI Navigation System
can navigate to the closest preferred
location.
For more information on how to use the
Places directory, refer to section 4.
ADDRESS BOOK
The Address Book can store up to 300
locations from map coverage areas into a
personal directory. This is especially useful
for frequently visited locations, such as
clients, relatives and friends. The Address
Book function allows easy access to
frequently visited locations when setting
them as your destination.
For more information on how to use the
Address Book, refer to section 6.
AVOID AREA
The Avoid Area function sets areas or
freeways that the INFINITI Navigation System does not include in the suggested
route when calculating routes. For example, if a freeway or area that is always
congested with traffic.
For more information on the Avoid Area
function, refer to section 6.
XM NavTraffic® INFORMATION
When available, the XM NavTraffic® Information broadcast may help to avoid delays
due to traffic incidents. Traffic jams, roadwork, closed roads around the current
location, etc. are represented graphically
on the map by icons depicting the nature
of the event. Incidents on the route are
automatically brought to the attention
when they are approached.
The XM NavTraffic® Information feature, via
the guidance mode, may help to detour
around traffic problems. For more informa-

tion on the XM NavTraffic® Information
feature, refer to section 5.
BirdviewTM
VOICE GUIDANCE
To make a detour due to traffic conditions,
the Detour function calculates an alternative route. The INFINITI Navigation System
can calculate a route using secondary
roads that will return to primary roads
after a specified number of miles.
Two map types, the 2D (Plan View) map
and BirdviewTM (3D) map, are available in
the INFINITI Navigation System. BirdviewTM
map displays the map from an elevated
perspective. In BirdviewTM map, it is easy
to recognize an image of the route because
it provides a panoramic view over a long
distance.
Route guidance is provided through voice
and visual instructions. Voice guidance
announces the appropriate directions
when approaching an intersection to turn.
For more information on the Detour function, refer to section 5.
For more information on BirdviewTM map,
refer to section 3.
AUTOMATIC REROUTE
When detecting a deviation from the
suggested route, the INFINITI Navigation
System will automatically recalculate a
new route to the destination.
For more information on the Automatic
reroute function, refer to section 5.
DETOUR
For more information on voice guidance,
refer to section 5.

CURRENT VEHICLE LOCATION
DISPLAY OF CURRENT VEHICLE LOCATION
This navigation system combines the data
obtained from the vehicle (by gyro sensor)
and from GPS (Global Positioning System)
satellites to calculate the current location
of the vehicle. This position is then
displayed throughout route guidance to a
destination.
using GPS signals.
Receiving signals from GPS satellites
The reception of GPS signals can be weak,
depending on the environment. Vehicles in
the following areas/environments may not
receive GPS signals (indicator color: gray).
. Areas with numerous tall buildings
WHAT IS GPS (Global Positioning
System)?
GPS is a position detecting system that
uses satellites deployed by the U.S.
government. This navigation system receives radio signals from three or more
different satellites that orbit 13,049 miles
(21,000 km) above the earth in space, and
detects the position of the vehicle by
utilizing the principle of triangulation.
Positioning adjustment
When the system judges that the vehicle
position information is not accurate based
on vehicle speed and gyro sensor data
calculations, the system will automatically
adjust the position of the vehicle icon

10. General system information
WHEN GRAY ROAD IS DISPLAYED ON
MAP
. When you are driving on a road
displayed in gray after the vehicle has
deviated from the suggested route
during route guidance, automatic rerouting may not start immediately.
. The navigation system does not provide
route guidance for roads displayed in
dark green. Therefore, if the destination
is set on a road displayed in dark
green, the enlarged map display will
return to the ordinary map screen at
some point on a suggested route that is
near the destination. Also, voice guidance will stop at some point on a
suggested route that is near the
destination.
. Places information and street names
near roads displayed in gray may not
be contained in the map data.
ROUTE CALCULATION
. There may be cases that carpool lanes
are included on a suggested route
when the automatic rerouting function
is activated, even if the “Use Time
Restricted Roads” is turned off.
“Setting conditions for route calculation” (page 5-25)
. The navigation system does not provide
route guidance for roads displayed in
dark green.
. If the destination is set on a dark green
road, the enlarged map display will
switch to the ordinary map screen at
some point and suggest a route that is
near the destination. The distance and
direction to the endpoint of the suggested route will be displayed in the
lower right corner of the screen. Also,
at this time, voice guidance will announce, “The route to the destination
includes roads through incomplete
map areas. Voice guidance will not be
provided in these areas”.
When approaching the endpoint of the
suggested route, voice guidance will
announce, “Entering the road with
incomplete map data. Use the direction
arrow and distance information to
proceed to your destination.”
To reach the destination, refer to the
map screen. Always follow actual roads
and regulations and drive safely.
. The suggested route may not be the
shortest, nor are other circumstances
such as traffic jams considered.
. Because of the inevitable difference in
road conditions and circumstances
between the time you use this system
and the time the information was
produced for the map data, there may
be discrepancies in roads and regulations. In such cases, follow the actual
information available.
. During route calculation, the map will
not scroll, however the vehicle icon will
move with the actual vehicle’s movement.
. During route calculation, buttons such
as <ZOOM OUT>/<ZOOM IN> (if so
equipped), <MAP>, <DEST> and the
INFINITI controller will be disabled.
. In some cases, after the calculation is
complete, the calculated route may not
be immediately displayed.

10. General system information
. Waypoints that have been passed will
be disregarded by rerouting calculation.
. If you scroll the map while the suggested route is being drawn, it may
take more time to finish drawing.
. If waypoints are set, the system calculates multiple routes between waypoints sim ultaneously, and the
following may result.
— If one section between waypoints cannot
be calculated, none of the route will be
displayed.
— The route may not connect completely at
some waypoints.
— The route may require a U-turn close to
some waypoints.
. Route calculation may not be completed in the following cases.
— If there is no main road within a range of
1.5 miles (2.5 km) from the vehicle, a
message saying so will appear on the
screen. Try recalculating when the vehicle is closer to a main road.
— If there is no main road within a range of
1.5 miles (2.5 km) from the destination
or waypoint, a message saying so will
appear on the screen. Try setting the
location closer to a main road.
— If the vehicle is too close to the
destination or if there are no roads to
the destination, a message saying so
will appear on the screen.
— If it is impossible to reach the destination or waypoints because of traffic
regulations, etc.
— If the only route to reach the destination
or waypoints is extremely complicated.
— If the destination, current vehicle position or waypoint is within the “Avoid
Area”.
— If a part of the route is included in the
“Avoid Area”.
. The following may occur when the route
is displayed.
— If you calculate a route on a main road,
the starting point of the route may not
exactly match the current vehicle location.
— The endpoint of the route may not
exactly match the destination.
— If you calculate a route on a main road,
the system may display a route from
another main road. This may be because
the position of the vehicle icon is not
accurate. In this case, park the vehicle in
a safe location and reset the vehicle
icon, or continue driving to see if the
position of the vehicle icon is automatically adjusted before recalculating the
route.
— There are cases in which the system
shows an indirect route to reach the
destination or waypoints, if you set them
from stored or facility information. In
order to correct this, you must be careful
about the traffic direction, especially
when lanes with different travel directions are shown separately, such as
interchanges and service areas.
— This system makes no distinction between limited traffic control and total
control (blockage). It may show an
indirect route even if the road is usable.
— Even if the freeway preference is set to
OFF, a route that uses the freeway may
be suggested.
— Even if the ferry preference is set to OFF,
a route that uses a ferry line may be
suggested.

NOTES ON VOICE GUIDANCE
REPEATING VOICE GUIDANCE
. Voice guidance is activated only for
intersections with certain conditions.
There may be cases that the vehicle has
to turn, but voice guidance is not
provided.
This function is available throughout route
guidance, from the time after the route
calculation is completed until the vehicle
arrives at the destination. Push <VOICE>.
Voice guidance will be repeated.
INFO:
. If <VOICE> is pushed when the vehicle is
deviating from the suggested route and
when the automatic reroute function is off,
voice guidance will announce, “Proceed to
the highlighted route.”
. If <VOICE> is pushed when the vehicle is
going in the wrong direction, voice guidance
will announce: “Please make a legal U-turn
if possible.”
. Voice guidance in this system should
be regarded as a supplementary function. When driving the vehicle, check
the route on the map and follow the
actual roads and traffic regulations.
. Voice guidance contents may vary,
depending on the direction of the turn
and the type of intersection.
. The voice guidance timing will vary
depending on the situation.
. When the vehicle has deviated from the
suggested route, voice guidance is not
available. The system will not announce
this. Refer to the map and recalculate
the route.
“Recalculate route” (page 5-22)
. Voice guidance may not accurately
correspond with road numbers and
directions at freeway junctions.
. Voice guidance may not accurately
correspond to street names at freeway
exits.
. The displayed street names may sometimes differ from the actual names, or
“UNKNOWN STREET NAME” may be
displayed.
. Voice guidance is not available when
the [Guidance Voice] is turned off.
“Turning voice guidance ON/OFF”
(page 2-25)
. Voice guidance will start when the
vehicle enters the suggested route.
Refer to the map for directions to the
starting point of the route.
. When approaching a waypoint, voice
guidance will announce, “You have
arrived at waypoint 1 (2, 3, 4,...).”
Voice guidance will switch to the next
section of the route. When voice guidance is not available, refer to the map
for directions.

at the destination.
. Voice guidance may be partially operational or inoperative due to the angle of
roads at an intersection.
. Because freeway lane information is
available only for approximately 7,000
major freeways in North America, it is
not possible to display information for
all junctions and exits.
. Freeway exit information may differ
from the information on the actual exit
signs.
. Because it is not possible to consider
data concerning roads that are seasonally available or unavailable, a route
may be displayed that does not match
the actual traffic restrictions. Be sure to
follow the actual traffic restrictions
while driving.
. Canada and Alaska contain many roads
with incomplete map data. As a result,
when searching for a route, the route
may include roads with incomplete
data. In regions where road data is
not complete, voice guidance may stop
for long periods of time. Be sure to
follow the actual traffic restrictions
while driving.
