>> Infinity's known for putting technology up forward in their cars. So let's check the tech in the M35 Sport. [ music ] First we're gonna go to our map. Our car has been optioned up with navigation. Our screen is very large. It's set a little bit back into a well which gives it some shielding from ambient light and sun glare. Graphical rendering quality is pretty good. It's not current generation, it feels last generation. Look at those jaggy lines along side that there, that's a pier right there and around the font there where it says Bay Bridge. I mean, it could be better and clearer. And we only complain about this because the sharper the text the easier it is for your eye to digest it at a glance and get back to looking at the road. Destination entry on this vehicle is pretty straightforward. In fact, overall I like the menuing on this car. It just seems intuitive even if you haven't spent much time with it. You go to street address, you hit enter. The big knob here is the Infinity version of iDrive and of course they would prefer not to have that comparison. The actually on screen keyboard is ABCD, not cordy. It does move along very quickly though and I found it was not too difficult to get this system working. Sometimes you use the rotator, sometimes you use the compass buttons. But all in all, you can move pretty quickly through this guy. So let's get entertained. Our car has the big Kahuna. We've got the major league Bose system on this one and it's got 14 speakers. The Bose Studio Sound System. Now that same Bose Studio surround sound is 5.1, so you say ah, does that mean it plays movies. Well it does, but it also plays DVD A, DVD audio disks. That drive is in here in the console and you retain the one up here which is your 6 disk in dash changer for MP3, WMA and audio only disk. And of course, we have AM and FM and Satellite radio. Your choice of either one. Onto the iPod category. There is no iPod adapter available on the Infinity from the factory. However, if you do get the rear seat entertainment system, which our car has, you get a jack field which lets you plug in a patch cord to a standard headphone jack. So that's okay. As part of the technology package, the most basic one, you get the rear view monitor camera. Put the car in reverse and you get one of the more sophisticated back up cameras. Not only does it show you distance of red, yellow and green markers how far away you are, but it also gives you an orange colored line that shows your trajectory. This is an Infinity thing that is actually quite useful. Now as I mentioned, we have the optional rear seat entertainment system back here in our little butterscotch world behind the front seat. So let's check out how it works. Here in the console we lift this door and we find a black velvet bag with black tassels like something out of a Transylvanian whorehouse. Inside there are the wireless headphones. There are two pair of these included. That's how you listen to what's on the rear seat system. To get the monitor down, you take out the remote, hit the button and down comes an 8 inch diagonal size, quite generous, matte finish display. And as we showed you earlier, you can watch a DVD movie from the changer in the console or you can watch or listen to what's on an auxiliary jack. So where's the jack? Let me show you. That lives right here, behind the console. You've got a set of RCA's. Red and white for audio of course and also a yellow one for basic quality video. So let's price out our M35 Sport. The car begins at 44,000 and change. On top of that, 1600 bucks for the aero kit. On top of that about 600 bucks for the Rosewood trim. Then 2900 for the technology package, which largely gets us a better stereo, navigation, rear view camera. All in, 54,000 dollars. ^M00:03:22 [ music ]
