Sorry for the "Rookie " question but how do I update the firmware?

Mine doesn't show the version you say. I don't see an option in the settings for UPDATE FIRMWARE.

Is it something you think we could ask the dealers to flash? I assume if it's a newer firmware version that works then yes, but they likely wouldn't downgrade us to an older firmware version.

No I don't think that is a good idea. We setup the JB4 firmware so it shows MAF temps to everyone now, to avoid confusion. And we'll work on sorted out charge air temperature for everyone. Just be aware when evaluating different intakes what you see on IAT doesn't match the temperature of the air entering the engine.

Make sure car is off and ign is on, connect to Jb4 via BT Mobile app. Go to settings tab on the bottom right. Then under the list it should come up "Firmware Update".

When it takes you to the message board - select the N20, Mini, MB, Q50/Q60 Group. Then select the top Thread “Infiniti Q50...” - it will bring up the first post in the thread (you will see the BMS Q50 photo.)

Scroll down to the second post - just below the videos - there are four JB4 files to select from - pick the one on the bottom JB4_Q50_OBDII_3_T1.hex

Is this the latest firmware as that post is over a year old?

The higher the number on the firmware, the newer it is. You can check your existing firmware version in the "read only" area of the JB4 interface/user adjustment tab. V3 is the latest one posted a couple weeks ago.

50// is the Q50/Q60, 3 is the firmware version, and //5 is the JB4 board type. So you're on V3. We also make subtle changes from time to time that won't show in the firmware version but are labeled as T1-T99 in the firmware.

Report from the field:

Valeted my Q50 for lunch and put the JB4 into Map 4. The effect was noticeable enough for the valet to ask me what was wrong with my car!
