You only get onstar free for one year and I believe the turn by turn nav is a separate cost from the reg onstar. not sure if anyone researched it but it was mentioned in earlier posts that onstar was teaming up w/mapquest for the turn by turn. dont know bout you but many people expressed the dislike of mapquest because they give wrong directions. i can personally say that mapquest sucks and they are behind the times of updating their information. Plus w/the blind spots behind the vehicle w/o the nav system you will not have the back up camera.bug2323 said:is navigation worth the cost when with buick you get onstar that can tell you directions :help:
The Onstar directions pkg is actually $299 to renew. With the 3k nav you are also getting an updated speaker and radio as well as the backup camera. Also, the nav system includes 2 free annual updates on the street/POI info.GreginMD said:I think it is if you have the budget. GM's nav system works well and has several cool features. The auto re-route and route preview modes are fantastic. It's simple to use and very precise in it's directions. The street names and exit numbers I've heard called out so far have been pronounced perfectly.
OnStar, at $200, a year is probably the better value compared to the $3k nav system. You could also buy one of the many portable (stick to the windshield) type of navs for just a few hundred dollars.
it figures w/the price gas you men should be the first in line for the nav system always driving around in circles cause ya dont wanna ask for directions.... :angryfire: really gets on the ladies nerves hehehehehehe ;D hno: :sosad:coopermine said:I want it simply due to poor visibility when backing up. $4000 Entertainment Package 4 sure is alot of money for a little bling. I do not need navigation since I am a MAN and don't need directions but i need the backup camera.
:rofl: my sons are my gadget men... they can work any electrical item i bring around hehehehehehe they are 13 and 9.coopermine said:Oh I forgot to mention the other reason for getting nav is that, the Enclave will be my wife Car ;D nothing much to say.
I get a call almost once a month to find an alternate route, when she gets stuck on the freeway. I hope the Nav system will be easy enough for her to use, otherwise I will be just wasting money :banghead:
