    We have a Spark and the software is loaded into the My Link system of the car. You have to purchase the BrinGo app after the trial is over for $59.99 and it works via a USB port in the car. Didn't think it worked on any other car besides the Sonic and the Spark. Theirs is why they offer the Nav in the C7 as an option. That dealer should pay for your purchase if they gave you false information.

    Sadly, the dealer quoted me 1995.00 to add nav into my C7 after the fact. A huge downer, so I'm living with my iphone 5s nav for now. Tried the Nav from OnStar which is OK (750 for 3 years) but it does not have a nice visual map to support it. Hopefully, GM will get a clue and think about the kind of very valuable app dev that could happen if they'd let the higher end customer (The engineers who've afforded a c7 and want to play) get the unlocked software to use the system properly.

    As I work for GM, I can't give the "how to" directions on developing software for the MyLink system. But a little time on Google will get you the info you need. There are already people developing various apps and adding features to the MyLink systems. Hint-Look outside of the Corvette world for this info.

    Great discussion... I'll be watching this tread closely as I have the same situation. No Nav. I have found the OnStar directions to be helpful and it even recalculates when I leave the route.

    Keep us posted!

    Crawler- if you work for GM, I'd appreciate an expert word here.

    If CHEV offers nav on a car, will they ever participate (not what an owner can hack) in offering a service like map streaming with video to the chev display ?

    I haven't been privy to any such info unfortunately. I'm a Chevrolet Sales Consultant and just have made a lot of friends that are deeper in GM than myself. I can ask the question. But, I don't know that I'll be able to get it to the person that has the answer.

    This was an interesting thread which occurred (and ended) a few days before I joined the forum.

    Some of us which have to deal with outrageous traffic in areas with multiple parallel freeways must have access to real-time traffic databases, or NAV is useless. At this time, I use Google Maps on my smartphone. I hope GM allows some way to access Google Maps with real time traffic layer overlays. Will the new in-car 4G LTE connectivity allow this without a hack?

    I love my car but I absolutely hate the mylink system.

    • I cannot generate an XM icon on the dash (can only access via steering wheel controls).
    • Music browse feature won't sort or go to next song when a specific song or artist is selected (it just keeps replaying the selected song).
    • I cannot play digital media (video) unless I encode it to a specific size and bit-rate then trick it into playing it.
    • USB drive randomly is not found (I have to unplug/replug for it to register when this happens). I initially thought the usb input was the problem but it occurs in all three usb inputs.
    • Subwoofer is set 50% louder than it should be (though this is a personal taste using only the bottom quarter of the slider doesn't seem smart unless this is intended for 16 year olds).
    • The navigation is awful (50% of the time the directions are wrong on freeways and main streets) and it will only recalculate after getting 50% closer to the destination. This feels like a nav system from 2004.
    • The OnStar service is a joke (I know the new business model is to suck as much money out of customers without the customer using your service but the lack of options/features for their subscription model is just awful).
    • Locking the nav system, for all users is just stupid (seriously, this should be an option that can be disabled. How can my passenger not enter an address into the nav while I am driving?).
    • When linking to my phone (either via blue-tooth or cable) there is no option to search or see information (song title, artist, etc). Just click next and hope!


    I pretty much just use my phone's googlemaps, on audio, for most navigation that I need now. If I find a dealer that can rip out the mylink and replace it with a half-way decent head unit that offers current gen navigation, music options, and interfaces with the car, I will be doing it. To reiterate: As much as I love the car I hate the mylink system = ].
