Interesting.

GM sent me a questionnaire about this feature asking what I thought about various layouts and nomenclature. This wasn't that long ago, maybe a month?

Sidebar - Does the Bolt have NAV? (yes, I know it's been said it doesn't) Watch this commercial, freeze at 1:01:

It for sure doesn't have built in nav. It uses the nav in your phone and displays on the screen. I've sat in one and played with the controls...I'm sure about this.

Not a loss in my opinion. I have the Nav on my Volt and almost never use it since Android Auto is so much more superior! Likewise with XM for music; Pandora (and others) are much superior (and free)!

Depends on where you drive, I suppose. If the CCS network ends up in remote places like the Tesla supercharger in Tonopah NV (facilitating cross desert travel), you can be driving for hours and not have any cell signal. Not sure how many tiles Google can download on your phone, but I would feel better with some built in maps. Otherwise gotta go old school and keep paper maps handy.

And I hate having to stick a Garmin on my dash with all those cords when I have a perfectly good LCD built in. I like to keep my cars streamlined when possible.

What Garmin and the other GPS manufacturers need to do is to come out with Android Auto compatible models so you can just plug them into the USB port like your Smart Phone and let them use the car's touch screen. A model like that wouldn't need its own screen, so it could even be cheaper and therefore more competitive.
