2018 Navigation
 
We have about 1500 miles on our 18 Murano and love it. We've used the navigation a bit but have a long trip coming up and was wondering how those in the know believe it will do. I've seen much criticism of the older system but hope the 18 with updates will work well.

Some vehicles allow you to utilize the nav on your phone and show it on the touchscreen. Does that work with the Murano? I'd prefer using the built in nav if it is up to date and works well.

I have a 2018 and navigation is so so. It works and the display between the gauges is nice but I use the Apple CarPlay on long trips. I struggle to get the Nissan system to find many poiís and end up using the phone. I really like Waze when I am on the interstates.

Choosing the correct options when you set up the nav will help with getting you there. Our Murano likes to follow a path that rarely agrees with my wife's phone (Here and Google). We have gone down some unusual paths following the factory nav, but been steered wrong by the phone apps, too. Helps to be retired and willing to take the road less traveled, so to speak

Thanks. That's kind of what I expected and I'm anxious to hear others comments. I assume yearly updates will help keep everything current.

I think they happen every 2 to 3 years at a cost of about $150 per update

I use Google maps via USB connection on my 2018 Murano. Works great. First, need to D/L Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. Also, more versatile for calls, texts etc than Nissan Connect. Give it a shot.

Has anyone figured out how to find street names on the navigation?

I've had a few times, most recently a few days ago when I did a long trip and could not for the life of me find the street in the search. The street is called Rue Saint Bonaventure. I tried it so many different ways but no luck. So I ended up using my phone l. Then when I was finally on scene I noticed that our navigation spells it St-Bonaventure.

You would think if it shortened Saint then it would use St.Bonaventure and not the " - " in between.

Anyway, I've had this happen a few times where the navigation is different then google maps or the actually street name. It wont let you guess a name in the ballpark, as it only allows for accurate spelling according to its system.

Any workaround?

Nope. The other day I wanted Highpoint Rd. System could not produce that address. So then I tried High Point Rd and met with success.
So no interpretation capability in the system
