Navagation feature question

Hello to all,

I just found out that for some reason when playing my radio I can't get to the "My Link" navagation system using the buttons jus to the right of the panel.

The only way NOW I can get to it is to go through the screen/panel.

Since I recently had a service could the button feature been eliminated by GM as an update??

In addition I can't access the weather,movies,gas feature from the screen although my "Travel Link" account is active.

Taking all this into account did I do something too the panel without me realizing OR is my Nav system on the fritz??

Thanks,

mailclerk

I cannot imagine some sort of live patch update would disable features.

Will more likely be a warranty or full replacement scenario. If you're out of warranty, understand that the dealer cannot repair the product thereby making their diagnostic service ($130) a 100% complete waste of time and money (scam). Replacement units are in the $700 range, or you can go the entire radio swap route and pay Gen5DIY or the Dealer to reprogram the VIN.

Snowman,

Thank you for your reply. I have an appointment with my dealer to have a look at it. So we'll see what happens.

What is Gen5DIY??

No, obtaining an aftermarket myLink from a source outside of a Chevy dealer is considered a hack and not supported by GM.

Most audio professionals will not endorse this route as it is cost prohibitive compared to a true aftermarket radio from Kenwood/Alpine/Pioneer that will offer far superior sound quality and options at or below the myLink hack.

Smoman,

I went to the dealer and they performed an update to the radio/My Link.
All is well now and running better. It just costs about $215.

Good to hear, cheaper than a system replacement.
