Android Auto or CarPlay will let you run current maps from your phone -- instead of the trucks nav -- for no extra cost.I've got a 2018 3500HD D/A. Just got an email with an offer to upgrade my GPS maps for $99.99, supposedly a $60 saving. Is there a cheaper way to get this done or do I have to bite the bullet if I wanna upgrade the maps?
Kind of like the GPS on Harleys … the whole system is junk IMOMy 2020 gmc maps are junk. Took me to the wrong location the other day. I had to end up using my phones google maps to get to where I was going.
I hope Waze can show in that screen soon, Carplay is the way to go. Has traffic, up to date info, etc, etc, etc...This is a shot of the new CarPlay with iOS 13. Apple updated their map app so it's pretty decent now. My go-to is still Waze. There is good functioning with maps, phone, texts and music apps. I like the new CarPlay.
Note. The song shown is Jason Boland's Telephone Romeo. That is not Jason Boland calling me. :wink2:
I am also not at all impressed with the GMC GPS system. Wrong direction, inability to locate significant towns, missing roads that have been in existence for years. I have used a separate Garmin or just my phone.My 2020 gmc maps are junk. Took me to the wrong location the other day. I had to end up using my phones google maps to get to where I was going.
When we travel & have to rent a car we normally take our Garmin since the rental car is cheaper if you don't get one w/navigation. Well, we just got back from a trip where we took the Garmin to use. Rental car didn't have any built in nav as expected, but it also didn't have a 12v plug in the Garmin could use (i.e. no cigarette lighter receptacle)!! First time I've seen that in any car (our rental was a 2019 Buick Enclave). The rental did have a carplay app so we used that & all was good.I use a Garmin GPS, the updates are free
