The navigation works great as does the hands free Bluetooth system.
Display screen a “must-see feature”
Premium adds “Bose audio system with two subwoofers”
The 2010 Nissan GT-R comes in two different versions, Base and Premium, which differ only in equipment and options. Just two options and two accessories are offered on the GT-R for 2010. There's a Cold Weather Package, Special Super Silver Paint, an iPod interface, and special floor mats. Base GT-R models now get 20-inch smoke-finish RAYS forged-aluminum wheels, while the Premium model gets a "near black" metallic wheel finish and nitrogen-filled run-flats. Premium models also add heated seats and an upgraded Bose audio system with Music Box hard-drive storage.
Overall, the GT-R offers a decent equipment list, with some creature comforts that won't make this coupe feel so edgy if you don't want it to. Edmunds points to the navigation system, "with a 30-gigabyte hard drive, 9.4 gigabytes of which can be used for audio storage."
The GT-R’s navigation and gauges deserve special notice. The GT-R’s display allows users to customize those screens, and the automaker even hired designers who worked on the Sony PlayStation's Gran Turismo game to design the interface. A “must-see feature,” according to Cars.com, the navigation screen hosts “a total of 11 screens” that “give more information than I've ever seen in a production car, starting with the mundane oil temperature and pressure, turbo boost gauge and fuel economy, and ranging up to steering angle, acceleration and braking in percent, AWD torque distribution, and lateral, acceleration and braking g-force.”
Although toys and comforts aren't the point of the 2010 Nissan GT-R, it has plenty of them.
