Why pay extra for navigation?

I was kind of bummed when I found out the car I scooped up didn't have navigation. Then I setup android auto and now I'm glad I didn't waste the extra $450. Honestly what's the point? For what I need it works perfectly and I can tap the mic button and speak the location and it finds it without issue and sets up the route perfectly.

For those still building please look into it because it works like a gem to me. Unless you just want the extra writing on the build sheet.

The Grand 2022 List of New Thread Topics that Should Be Outlawed

- Oil
- Camaro sales vs competitors
- Catch cans: yes or no
- GM Navigation vs Android Auto/CarPlay/Waze



(as to what the point of factory nav is, there have been many threads about that already: it is integrated into the infotainment, the DIC and the HUD, which some, including yours truly, prefer—and I have wireless AA plus proper wireless charging in my car, so it isn't just idle talk)

You are probably right this would have been one of the one times I didn't search. Coming fresh out the car and using it it just jumped out my thoughts.

Totally understand, and I'm always happy to discuss these with open minded people, and I have no trouble accepting that some, like you, see the $450 as money down the drain. It's just that such threads tend to devolve into "you're a moron if you pay for factory nav when you can just use waze and google maps", "GM would have added a catch can if it were necessary, you're an idiot for messing up the engineers' design" etc. mud wars instead of giving consideration to each other's experience and preferences (sigh).

With AA and Maps option to see faster paths.. factory nav sits idle. BUT it's a good backup if for example .. you forget your phone, cable stops workings.. etc.


It's another things MANY people look for.. so when listing for sale "factory nav" - ticks a box.
