In the instrument panel, the vehicle information screen always displays a gas icon (I'm guessing is distance to empty), the 4x4 mode, and outdoor temp.

Two issues I'm having with my screen... On the trip odometer page, there are 4 things showing: Under the Average column it has MPG and MPH. Under the driving column it has something with miles, and some sort of clock? What is that column supposed to be indicating? This YOU TUBE video says its time driven since last reset and also distance to empty. I just filled up my tank and the distance to empty says 150miles on this screen. (Yet, it says 388 miles) on the top bar of the vehicle information screen. Also, when they say "last reset," what does that mean? The last factory reset, or the last trip reset? I've reset both trip A and trip B, and the information shown on the odometer display from the vehicle info screen has not changed or reset, it still remains that same. I've even reset fuel economy through the nav, but that has no change on the vehicle info screen on the instrument panel.

Secondly, I've put about 170 total miles on the car so far and would expect to have about 250+ miles left on the tank, which is what the car was appropriately indicating. Today, I parked on a slight hill and when I turned on the car, the distance to empty said 400 miles all the sudden and the gas gauge was on full. I figured it was because the gas was leaning on the sensor. After driving for 15 minutes, the fuel gauge needle finally stabilized, but distance to empty stayed just under 400. Anyone else see something similar?

I was a little worried about the gas part, so I went ahead and filled up the tank again. We're now indicating 388 and full tank on the needle gas gauge. *sigh*

When on the "info" screen that has all the various MPG, avg speed, etc measurements you can hold down the "next screen" button for 2 seconds and it will reset all of those. It's something I do at every fill up so I know how I did on MPG each tank.

The owners manual is wrong. I had a long talk with Nissan consumer affairs. The advanced drivers display in the pathfinder does not show audio information nor caller id info like the display in the Altima.

What was the result of your long talk? Are they going to fix it? Its also advertised on the website along with a picture that says "Hands Free Text Messaging." How do I do that?

ps. seems like a software update could get this done

They apologized, said the owners manuals were printed before vehicle was finalized and send me a $250 gift card. I'm still not happy as the radio info and caller id on the advanced display were features i wanted and was told that the vehicle had prior to purchase.

My dealer only said it was a miss print in regards to the audio being available on the dash info screen. He never said anything about an update or if it will ever be available.

That is what I was told as well by my dealer and Nissan but this was back in early November. I am curious if there really is an update.

That information would have been great to know before I bought one without navigation but not a deal breaker.
