  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Whenever I get a Weather Alert on my Nav screen, I go to see what's up. Each time, it contains warnings about "Cecil County", which I now have discovered is one state away from where I live and drive in Pennsylvania. I finally figured out what must be going on. I bought my Volt out of state...
  4. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    When I bought my 2013 Volt (Jan. 29) I asked the salesman if I would ever have to buy map updates for my navigation system and he said no, there was no charge for that. But recently here I saw posts about people paying $200 for map updates. So what's the story? Did he give me wrong...
  5. Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Found this little device a little while ago. http://www.navinc.nl/Producten?s=2580 Rather expensive, but they have full touchscreen control of an external computer. Interesting to see if US maps could be loaded on to it.
  6. 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...
  7. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    Updated yesterday the on-board navigation system on 2011 Volt 2669. Total time for upgrade 4:42. It took 3 hours to get through about 75% of disk one and the remainder of the time to complete. According to the packaged instructions the car needs to be on for the duration of the upgrade so the...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I bought me 2013 Volt on April 20th. It has been in the shop for more than 10 days on 5 different occasions with the exact same problem and to date no solution. Each time they have updated the software, rebooted the system and each time I have had to re-enter all my saved data. I depend...
  9. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm a new Volt owner and getting used to voice commands. I live in Los Angeles and wanted to run an errand yesterday. I tell the Volt, in very clear, accent-free English, "555 South Hill Street Los Angeles California". She immediately routes me, with no confirmation dialogue, to somewhere in...
  10. Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    First I'd like to say that this thread is not about whether or not to have navigation in your car. I know many people simply use their phones or tablets, and that's fine. However, some people like the built in Navigation, so this applies to those people. :D Anywho, does anyone else think the...
  11. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi there, I'm a new Volt owner and am looking for an easy way to turn voice navigation guidance on and off. I often find that I'd like to have the voice part on for some parts of a trip and off for others. The only way I've found to toggle this setting involves a number of clicks (dangerous to...
  12. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've bitched a lot about the sub-par and expensive navigation system in my 2013 Volt (see here, here and here). On the positive side, the Volt's nav display does look decisively cool in 3D mode: Zooming out shows the above view from space, complete with the curvature of earth. This is...
  13. Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    Hi everyone. I just picked up a new 2013 a couple days ago. I just found this site and this is my first post. I'm looking forward to reading every single post on this forum :D My gps nav map spins and is basically useless because of it. It spins whether a destination is entered or not...
  14. 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. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    When I add one or more waypoints to my navigation, the distance display to final destination (or to waypoint) while driving does not change. If I remove all waypoints, leaving just the destination, the remaining distance decrements as expected. It doesn't matter if I configure the display to...
  16. 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. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I have called a Volt Advisor twice now (got the same guy 2 days in a row), searched the web and this forum trying to correlate the nav map version in my 2012 (201103) with the one available for purchase on the GM Navigation Disc order page (2012 Global A High Nav Disc Part# 22827639 $199.99)...
  20. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The navigation system apparently doesn't know the meaning of the word 'fastest'. According to the in-dash nav, the 'Fastest' route to my destination will take 3 hours 58 minutes, while the 'Shortest' route will take 3 hours 8 minutes. :confused::confused: I think a software update may be needed.
