  2. How to display traffic on map

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have a 2015 Volt with nav and the Sirius XM trial. How do I get the map to show where traffic slowdowns are, regardless of whether I've programmed a destination. I want to see the green/orange/red roads that shows where traffic is tied up as I'm driving along.
  3. Nav system problems-system hangs?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    So, 2014 Volt, 3.5 months old, ~4500 miles. In the last 4 days, the Nav system has hung up with a frozen screen and no activity. First two times the screen said "Navigation Initialization". Turning the car off, opening the door and leaving (to go to work, home, Etc) "fixed" the problem...

  5. NAV going in circles

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    2013 volt here. Yesterday my in dash NAV is literally going in circles, cannot find center or position. This happens with or without a destination in progress. If I put a destination, it can't figure where I am so it says make a left turn...make a right turn...and so on. Looking at it is like a...
  6. Navigation System Gone Berserk

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    The nav system in my 2013 Volt has had a mental breakdown and is giving me one as well. The map on the display has taken to doing 360 degree turns while I am driving. As soon as it goes upside down, it thinks I am going in the opposite direction and gives me directions to get back on track...
  7. Can dealer disable NAV from Volt?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This NAV is driving me nuts. It wants to continue my 2week old destination every morning. Every morning it initializes for 2 minutes at start up. It's messed with iPhone integration and then asks to continue my weeks old destination. I'm really sick of the NAV as a whole and only tried that...
  8. My 1st question: What if you just like to listen to .... silence?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I love my new Volt but I do have a question: No doubt this is a dumb question, but I haven't found an answer for it: I like to have the NAV running on the center console screen while I drive, but normally I don't like to have the radio playing. (I know I'm odd, but I'm fond of silence in the...
  9. 2013/2014 NAV Points of Interest

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Do any of you know if the 2013/2014 Volts with NAV have "Charging Stations" listed as a point of interest? :confused:
  10. 2013 Nav not accepting input

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Has this happened to anyone else here? I've searched the forums and couldn't find a post related to it. In my 2013, every so often the nav will stop accepting input. For instance, yesterday, I started driving, pressed Destination, Points of Interest. Then I stopped the car, put it in park...
  11. '13 Volt NAV just gets worse and worse

    Totally Off-Topic
    I've noticed things changing with my NAV unit to the point that I only select it to see just what's changed since last time. It no longer remembers my 'home' location and fails to show speed limits of the roads I travel, but today - It stopped showing me anything at all.. Come on - This...
  12. Could Any of You Test This for Me?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    On my 2013, I can lock-up (freeze) the center stack, at least the navigation portion of it, on demand. It unfreezes once you turn off the car and wait a minute or two. Here are the steps if any of you would be nice enough to attempt to reproduce it... Press the "Destination" button (the...
  13. My Volt's been updated with new NAV RADIO software

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    My 2013 Volt has just been updated with the most recent software. Some of which isn't even released to the general public just yet. When my dealer was stumped on my issues 1-5 (see below), they contacted the system engineers in Detriot and the engineers decided to have my dealer download a...
  14. Nav System Waste of Money

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    For any of you reading this forum who are considering buying a Volt, DO NOT waste your money on the navigation system. I refused a number of Volts to wait for one with a nav system and it is the worst waste of $2,700 I have ever made. My system does not know the names of major roads, calling...
  15. Nav System Disappointment

    Totally Off-Topic
    I waited longer for my Volt (2013 bought 6 weeks ago) and paid about $2,700 more for the navigation system (as it was part of a package), and I am very disappointed in it. When I leave home for a destination in consistently takes me on a longer route to both of the two highways I take. I mean...
  16. Has Your Navigation System Ever Gotten Stuck?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I only have had my 2013 Volt with MyLink/Navigation for two weeks and my nav system has gotten stuck twice on the "Calculating route..." screen. I can display the radio, climate, and config screens, although I can only see the outer edges of those screens because of the "Calculating route..."...
  17. Software bug in nav map

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have a 2013 Volt and in this vehicle and my prior vehicle, I have always switched the displays to the metric setting. In my Volt everything now displays in metric with one exception--the speed limit of the current road that is displayed on the navigation map. It still shows MPH although...
  18. Navigation Volume Settings?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    As a new 2013 Volt owner, I'm trying to figure out the volume of the nav guidance. How do I control the volume of the guidance while I'm talking on my phone via Bluetooth? When the voice comes on, I am unable to hear my caller and my caller can hear the guidance. I tried adjusting the two...
  19. Navigation Map Errors

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Who does the map updates? I have two major highways in the Toronto area that are marked on the nav system as closed. They are not. There is construction, but they are not labelled as being under construction. It shows them closed. This does not give me confidence if I am driving in an...
  20. Comparison of center controls on 2013 with Nav

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Thought I'd share a pic of the center console controls on the 2013 with nav from my owners manual: Comparing it to the owners manual from the 2012: 1. Top row is the same 2. Fav button is replaced with Phone on 2013 3. Tone button is replaced with Info on 2013 4. Radio/Band is replaced with...
