You press a button located on the rearview mirror and this puts you speaking with a live operator. You then give the operator the address, or the operator will help you find an address or point of interest. They are quite good. When you finish with the operator,(it doesn't take very long) the directions are sent electronically to the car and the directions are called out by an automated voice, similar to a GPS or Nav system. The voice give adequate warning of upcoming turns and gives street names. The directions also appear in script on the vehicle information system located by the speedometer, which is a good place for it. The only drawback is that you do not have a live map- you just have the voice and script. I found it to be fine in comparison to the Nav system in our Buick and a Garmin GPS that I have.
