#9 of 17 Anybody get the bypass to work ?
Feb 09, 2010 (10:20 pm)
I would love to bypass it. Wish they would attach it to a sensor in the pax seat like the airbag so we can program on the go. Had the same problem with movment, it shuts off at about 10 mph.
Anybody done it and had success ? Want to post step by step ?

I agree! Both of my Chrysler 300C's have the same "in-motion" menu defaults that prevent nav system selections until the vehicle is completely stopped. My passenger (wife/co-pilot) is also my navigator, but I have to pull over for her to make any changes to the route program or address inputs. Stupid system! Also, the in-dash nav system screen should function with the dvd player/tv/mp3/screen in the backseat so the passenger can watch movies without having to sit in the back seat! If they want to diable the screen/menues when there is no passenger in the front seat, a weight sensor switch in the passenger seat would suffice. For the $1800 I had to pay for these systems in each car, they are not very useable. Ultimately, I would like to have continuous internet access available from the dash screen, to allow me to have access to everything without having to bother with a laptop. I also like the bluetooth connection for my cell phones, but it quite clunky when using voice commands.
#11 of 17 Nav system info is frequently wrong
Mar 14, 2010 (5:42 pm)
Has anyone else had the problem of the nav system giving the wrong information ? I can handle my house being off a few numbers or something like that but it gives my house number as one that simply does not exist. The highest the street numbers go on my road is 9 and my number is 2. The nav system says it is 64 or 72, both while sitting in the drive. Sometimes it says it cannot find the address at all! Last week it tried to send me the wrong way down a one way street (on the left) while my destination was ahead on the right. The zoo hasn't moved in about 25 years and my house is over 50 years old so the roads have not changed at all. It also occasionally sends me in a circle (yes, I'm serious) on our neighborhood streets to get out of town. Something is seriously screwy with it.
The Nav Tech disc is from 2007, car is 2009, and I want to know if replacing my system would solve the problem or is the system just reading what the disc gives it ? Anyone know?
#14 of 17 Update GM Nav Disk???
Dec 31, 2011 (4:08 pm)
Don't buy the update disk and if you do for God's sake don't get it from the thieves at GMNAV Disk.
If you take out your DVD disk and put in your computer to check the folders you'll see that the 2011 dsk has maps dated DEC2008. The maps are even older than that and I have found no difference in them from the maps in the DEC2007 dated map folder on my GMNAV Dsk that came with my then new 2010 vehicle.
They just released the 2012 GMNAV dsk update and guess what. The maps are from 2009 and they are no where near up to date with roads and addresses that were open in 2009 or in 2008 for that matter.
GM as always takes an otherwise great vehicle and then pisses off people that plunk down $50K or more by screwing up badly such details as "intentionally" selling 3-4 year old maps with a $1500-2500 in dash Nav system then trying to "gouge" customers for a ridiculous $200 for a truly feeble attempt at an "update".
GM needs to be held accountable for this scam and so far no one is except for the few of us willing to rip their thieving throats out on blogs.
We are not only customers but we bailed out this damn company with our tax dollars and we who then also pony up a huge bundles of cash to buy a GM vehicle DESERVES BETTER!
#16 of 17 Nav/Radio problem just started!!!!
Sep 29, 2012 (8:34 am)
We just bought a 2008 Enclave CX model with tow package, two sunroofs, Nav System the works about 2 months ago. It has been my wife's dream vehicle for a long time. It's been great so far to own and drive. Just yesterday she was driving it and the radio started switching back and forth from FM to XM on its own. Now it's been parked since that happened yesterday so she don't know if it still going to do that. She has some stuff to do today later but just wondering if this is a documented problem and something she can have taken care of.
On a separate issue,
She's noticed a little bit of water, after it rains, on the bottom right corner of the glovebox, and ending up on the carpet. Where should we start looking?
Please help!! I'm in the Army and I can't help my wife with these two problems as I'm not there at this time so any info that I can relay back to her would be great.
Please help! Desperate!!

We appreciate your service to our country and understand that it would be frustrating to be so far away when vehicle concerns arise. If your wife had wanted to work with a GM dealership on getting this looked into and would also like for Customer Assistance to keep track of what's going on as well, she can either contact the Buick Customer Assistance Center at 800-521-7300 or can email us at socialmediagm.com (we would need the following information along with any further details she would want to include about the vehicle situation: name, phone and address, the last 8 of the VIN and approximate mileage, and the name of the preferred dealership).
