  1. 2019 Navigation SD Card Error - SD card has been removed.

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Every time I start my 2019 Volt, I'm getting an error on the SD Card reader down in the center console. I eject the SD Card and re-insert it and the error goes away. This started happening about 2 months ago and is starting to be annoying. How can I fix this issue?
  2. 2011 & 2012 Volts, Navigation data only available thru 2016!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I just discovered that maps updates only go up to 2016 data for 2011 & 2012 Volts (https://gmnavdisc.navigation.com/product/Catalog/Catalog_Chevrolet_Volt_2011/GM-North-America-Map-Update-DENSO-Global-A-v.2016/sku/23286275/en_US/GMNA/USD). Only up to 2017 data for 2013 Volts...
  3. 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...

  5. 2012 Volt Map Update/Nav Update

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi All, just got off the phone with GMNavDisc people, I was going to bite the bullet and buy the GM - NORTH AMERICA MAP UPDATE - DENSO GLOBAL A - V.2016, but they said it went live in October of 2015. I decided not to pay $179 for maps that are already almost 2 years old (probably more since...
  6. GEN2 Navigation glitch

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I had an interesting glitch on my 2017 Volt today. I left my smart phone at home so instead of using Waze I started to use the in-car navigation. I should have immediately known that there was a problem when it told me that my normal 1 hour commute was going to take only 22 minutes. I then...
  7. How is Navigation?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm strongly considering purchasing a used Volt, probably a '14 or '15. I've seen comments that the Navigation isn't worth the price, but used cars with nav are much cheaper than if I were to add it to a new car. For those of you with Nav, how is it? I currently use a Garmin as I like it...
  8. Fifty Ways to Talk to Your Volt

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Well, maybe not fifty, but so far I've counted three ways to use voice to interact with my 2015 Volt. I haven't tried voice commands for all systems; I'm mostly interested in navigation and phone commands. Can you help me sort out which type of voice commands I should concentrate on. This is...
  9. Sirius XM sub needed for nav traffic?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    My Sirius XM trial ends January 27, and I'm probably not going to renew. Will I lose traffic re-routing on the in-dash navigation when I no longer have the SXM? Is there any compelling reason to pay for SXM if I don't care about the radio stations?
  10. First Time Poster - Looking into a Used Volt (prob 2014)

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Hello all, I've been lurking anonymously for years on here and am finally in a position to getting a Volt. I'm seeking some rough Guidelines on a 2014 Used Volt from the community. I'm likely going to be getting a Volt through Carvana and I've read they sometimes don't have everything listed...
  11. where do i put my phone?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I just got my 2015 Volt, and after driving a Honda Insight, and two Priuses for the last twelve years, it's a change. I've always had nav before, and i didn't buy it for the Volt, partly because Volt owners don't seem impressed with it, and partly because, in recent years, i have relied more on...
  12. XM Radio Is On, but no sound. Stays on when car is off, but grayed out, HELP!

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My son accidentally pressed the red SOS OnStar Button today. After that, it seems that our radio will not work. The screen is on and actually stays on after the car is off. You can't hear anything through the radio and when you try to press buttons on the menu,everything seems greyed out. I...
  13. 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...
  14. Any experience in HDD replacements for the mavigation unit?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Dear all, The HDD in my navigation unit is apparently playing up: - navigation only starts after a while (ca. 10 min), showing a local map correctly - navigation is very prone to blocking the software, when trying to introduce a new location - I cannot record any mp3 to the HDD. Did anyone...
  15. "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...
  16. Has your center stack ever rebooted or become unresponsive while driving?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    There have been numerous threads about problems with the Volt's center stack controls and display freezing up, locking on the "initializing" screen, and rebooting whilst driving the car. My anecdotal observation has been that this seems more common in 2013 Volts equipped with navigation. This...
  17. 2014 With Frequent Center Stack Crashes (Nav/Bluetooth related?)

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I had a 2012 for 3 years and had zero problems with the infotainment system. My 2014 I've had for 3 months and have already had the center console lock up about a dozen times. It's always been due to using Navigation, and I suspect Bluetooth is involved too. Is anyone else having these...
  18. WTB '13 or '14 Volt Premium with Navigation

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I am based in Northwestern Illinois. I am not in the mood to haggle with GM dealers in my ZIP and am looking for: 2013 or 2014 Premium WITH Navi and Charging accessories. 1. Preferably in Grey or Black 2. Please let me know if there are sellers here in the NW Suburbs of Chicago? 3. Please...
  19. 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...
  20. Calculating Route... modal stays up - 2014 Volt

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    So yesterday I got the center screen stuck on "Calculating Route" even though the nav system clearly had finished as it was giving me guidance through voice and the driver display. Being a modal message, it completely blocks the nav/center screen (or anything else on the center screen). I found...
