"Finally, the Quick Stop function, as it is programmed is utterly useless. In theory, you're supposed to be able to go to the Quick Stop menu while you're driving on the freeway (this function is allowed while driving) and with the touch of a button find nearby gas stations, fast food restaurants, ATM's, etc. This would be a terrific feature, if it worked! The Quick Stop function does find the nearest locations, but invariably they are behind us by up to 20 miles. We go on many road trips and while traversing hundreds of miles, there's no way in the world that we would ever consider backtracking unless we were plainly desperate for gas. It would be nice if Infiniti allowed the owner to plug in a preference for only those locations that are ahead of the car."
Quick stop is totally diffrent from what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the POI option if you pres the destination button. Say I'm looking for the closest TARGET or WALMART.... When you go to type it in....Theres a unhighlighted option on the left of the screen that says" NEARBY"....I was only able to use that option once....I don't even remotely recall what i did to make it work that one time.
The only other way to look for locations nearby is to type in the state/city you're in and the name of the place. Which takes much too long for me. PLUS it doesn't even give you a distance est. from where you are..like the quickstop menu....
ANd since you brought up the quick stop menu......Is there any way it can locate more than 5 diffrent places at a time? Mine usually stops searching after the first 5 found............Unlike the POI search which keeps searching.
