I don't disagree. I'm in the same situation myself. Coming from a car that had only wired CarPlay to one with wireless is a big plus for me. But I can understand the criticism. Considering the J12 has pretty much every bit of car tech Nissan could throw at it, and goes up to close to £40k, you'd just have thought they'd have modernised the look of the interface (and made it a little more responsive).

To be honest, I don’t pay a great deal of attention to the digital cockpit as all the information I need is projected onto the windscreen via the HUD, which displays: current speed, drive assist information, steering assist status and any warnings pertaining to speed limits and emergency braking.

Apple CarPlay is my default choice on the Connect screen which also connects to my Apple Watch with haptic feedback and sounds for directions when using Apple Maps as the SatNav. :)

The graphics are far better than my previous Qashqai’s and other cars I’ve owned/seen.

When I use Apple CarPlay, with the Connect screen, it’s just the same as looking at my iPhone.

The digital cockpit graphics are clear enough and the information is legible.

Carplay/Android doesn't really count as the car is just mirroring the phone screen. The criticism is against the car's built-in interface and in-built sat-nav, which just look old and janky compared to a lot of what is currently available. The digital cluster (while perfectly good enough) also doesn't look as slick and modern as most other cars which offer one).

I'd have to say that digital display looks rather a mess with the various icons liberally sprinkled all over it. Could they not have lined them up at the top or the bottom?

This one from the internet looks a lot clearer:

It will probably receive an overhaul with the facelift model in a few years time, just enough to tempt people to buy the new version? ;)

Just noticed the USB ports have mood lighting too, albeit briefly :o ;)

You can charge your AirPods via the charging case on the wireless charging mat - compatible equipment required though ;) :geek:
