I had my onstar replaced under warranty. They did part 1 of the program, and I had to do part 2 (they should have done it).

Part 1 is the dealer programs the new onstar unit to the radio.
Part 2 is you use the button for onstar then give them your vin so the subscription is activated.

Any update to this?

really looking forward to dropping the funds for this. Drove a buddy's 2011 Mustang GT/CS last weekend, and the GPS was a blaring feature in my eye that made me a little jealous that my camaro lacks.

Thanks!!

Yeah, I checked out the MyLink on a newer Camaro just the other day and I'd love to have one. Wish this were a top priority for someone with the time and money to get it done. We all know how busy 2SSRS is!

In order to make this a top priority, i need service manuals that have the info right, as stated before the new manuals are worthless, if you look at the connecters for the XM there the same as the 2010 ones, but there are wires in the 2013 harness that are not in the service manuals, so it make's it hard to find where they go to and from.

I ordered a 2010 dash harness now to see whats going on, the 2013 harness is on a table in front of me 10 Hr a day.

It's just a shame you're a 1 Man Army. I wish I were near you because I'd have no problem helping you out, physically anyway.

No. The Mylink navigation is separate from OnStar - so if you have the Mylink with Nav you can cancel the OnStar

The suspense is killing me !

If the difference between Nav and non-Nav is the entire head unit, then could someone with MyLink & no Nav add this feature by replacing the head unit and adding a GPS antenna, or is there more to it than that?
