  1. Okay I'll try again to post this question about GPS and maps and OnStar directions...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Just got back from a long road trip (the Volt did great, as usual). While my spousal unit was driving, I tried to post a question on this website using my cell phone, but, after lengthy typing, my post disappeared into the ether. So here it is again. At the start of the trip I upped for...

  3. How to determine what Map version is installed

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I recently discovered that it is possible to update the maps on the Infotainment system. NavTeq which supplies mapping for Garmin and most major auto manufacturers, including GM, offers the ability to update your maps. NavTeq is now called Here.com. Apparantly, the Big Three German auto makers...
  4. Botched Nav Radio Upgrade By Dealer OnStar RED!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Long story short -- does anyone know the exact proper procedure and codes to upgrade the OnStar module when upgrading from the old Gen 1 base stereo to the Navigation head unit? Apparently the procedure on here is missing something. (Also one of the needed cable parts has been discontinued...
  5. Smartphone Navigation and Bluetooth

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi everyone! Short-time lurker and first-time poster. These forums have been a treasure-trove of information for me since I started thinking about getting, and subsequently leasing, a Chevy Volt. Thanks for everything, but there is one thing that I haven't found--I hope this is the right...
  6. 2016 Volt - Apple Car Play

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have a 2016 volt premier which has APPLE CAR PLAY do we have a forum for car-play ?
  7. Is the Navigation option worth it?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi Folks, It's an expensive option and wonder how much better than "Maps" in CarPlay is the Navigation? I know Maps is pretty sad and a bad Apple. Some of what I am hoping to learn is if it can synch with an iPhone's contacts; how well it responds to voice requests, user friendliness, updates...
  8. "No GPS" symbol appears on dash almost all the time. 2016 model

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've had my 2016 Volt for 2 weeks now, and this is the first GM Navigation system I've owned. When I use the Nav, about 80% of the time the Nav operates with the "No GPS" advisory symbol lit. This is in sunny weather, with no mountains/trees/overpasses within half a mile of my car. The...
  9. GPS died on Volt....recovered after several days!

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I took my Volt in for a couple of recalls about 2 weeks ago. A few days later we attempted to use the GPS (No recalls on this!) and found it completely inoperative. The display shows the GPS icon with a line through it. It would not navigate at all. It had no idea where it was located. I...
  10. Navigation Activation

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    The GPS sensor is built into the ONStar system. Is it possible to either download software to display GPS navigation if you didn't pay the rediculous $1000 radio upgrade to get it initially or if you have an external GPS unit to have it display on the vehicles auxiliary screen when plugged into...
  11. MDI Calibrations

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    Hello everyone, I have a big question. Can I, as a private citizen of Australia and New Zealand, use the MDI, and ACDELCO, to calibrate my speedo? Apparently no one in Australia can do it as calibration is done in the U.S.A. Prior to shipping. No doubt at request of the local distributer...
  12. 2013 Volt - Navigation Drifts from Actual Location

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have a 2013 Volt. The indicator of where the car is located on the map is constantly drifting off or spinning around or moving in a different direction of travel. I have had the car to the dealer two times for this problem and after a week or so the issue is back again. I will take it back...
  13. Traffic vocal announcements and meteo disappeared

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Nobody at GM or the dealer knows what's going on on this one. When I purchased my Volt, for about 2 weeks, when I was going into a traffic jam, a voice told me so like "traffic jam 400m away for 4 km". IMPORTANT : I was not using the GPS. I found that feature really nice. At that time, I also...
