Hey everyone,

Did some searching and i can't find anything on this. I have a 2011 Chevy cruze without the navigation radio.

I realized that there is a navigation option on the speedometer screen (option 8 when scrolling down). I have a trial of onstar and used the navigation once, but didn't care for it since you can't silence it (kept cutting off my music though i could see the directions). I wanted to know if there was any way to use a third party device to show up on the screen?

Thanks,
Ben

It is NOT 3rd party compatible, the software code in the car would actually have to be manipulated or open sourced to a company which Chevy is not going to do. It also opens up a world for hackers to manipulate door locks etc if they get access to the code and break the hash encryption.

with the navigation equipped vehicles the speedo screen displays the turn directions when set to "navigation",or at least it does on my sri-v,however the OEM nav system is somewhat less accurate than the nav system in our BMW

In the non nav MyLink models you can have it on both the DIC and the touchscreen(via OnStar). Haven't tried it in a nav MyLink Cruze yet.






On the ATS and CTS, they have some sort of open source ability but haven't researched it since it didn't pertain to us.

Doesn't Mapquest have an option where you can send/download directions you get from its website to your car's Onstar nav system?

Via the OnStar website and Remotelink app, yes but it's Bing. A few times it got me "close enough" but I mostly press the blue button and get my moneys worth while I still have it.
