You can buy a garmin for under $100 and get free lifetime map updates, that's what I used to do in the past. I really only got the nav because it was part of the sun/sound./nav package and I really only wanted the first 2.


I'll just use google maps via carplay. It really doesn't use that much data and honestly I can use Siri and say "navigate to 'xxxxx business'" and it will pull up the address and take me there. With the built in Nav you pretty much need to know the address. I've tried using the voice commands on the built in nav and its painful to be honest.

System should *really* have a maintenance screen showing versions and dates of last download so these things can be quickly verified.

I have a paid subscription so my XM was active when the update showed up on the screen. I renewed my XM service in August from the trial period. I also have an active OnStar subscription.

One thing I found out this summer is that the in-dash nav as well as the traffic and weather apps are XM Radio dependent. I found this out when my XM trial ended and I chose not to subscribe to the package which contained the Beatles channel and a lot of other stations I had no use for. After I opted for the service I had on our previous three cars I found the traffic and weather apps as well as the navigation no longer worked. I found this somewhat confusing, in part because I often send destinations to the “myChevrolet“ app. I thought it might be OnStar related and called OnStar but they told me it was probably XM I called XM and they told me my traffic and weather in navigation apps no longer work because I changed my package from the all-inclusive package that was offered during the trial period.

gpar:

Are you saying the in dash navigation system does not work at all if it doesn't have access to the higher cost XM radio package? I had expected to lose the weather and the traffic features, but assumed the rest of the in dash Nav would work.
