A few things are deleted on this car , can you tell me if the dealer can update the radio to install factory Nav . they seem to remove a few things for rental companies , Navigation is one . I have a 2016 LT 2LT package . thanks . Scott
Factory navigation isn't standard on a 2LT. So, in a nutshell the dealer isn't going to do anything about it. There are companies that sell that feature for $1000. In the age of smartphones and Waze factory NAV isn't all it's cracked up to be.
It is a different head unit but the factory Nav in my 2015 SS(different car yes) which is built in permanent not OnStar seems to be deliberately made crappy to upsell onstar, besides insurance quirks like not allowing address entry while moving. If I am using Nav my wife is most often in the car and wants to enter addy but she can't till I stop.
It is cumbersome to navigate, it gets screwed up by a few hundred feet if the car is started under an obstructed skyview like say under the canopy at a gas station, updates are like $175 as I hear it.
I honestly like our 7yo Garmin Nuvi with the under 5" screen better.
The only possible redeeming features I can find with it are the ability to control the volume from the steering wheel and that it lowers radio volume when the voice nav begins to speak, otherwise I think I would have gladly paid an extra $100 for the car to get a regular radio instead of the infotainment GARBAGE.
My 2015 2LT was also a from a rental fleet. I bought it as a CPO from my dealer and it's been a wonderful car. It only has Nav feature through OnStar, but to get the Nav feature, OnStar said it would cost me $387 a year. No thank you. I have a Garmin GPS with FREE lifetime updates, a 6 inch screen, and it can be placed anywhere I want to see it without looking away from the road. I WIN.
I just bought an identical car (2016 rental 2LT) yesterday. If you have an iPhone or an Android phone, FORGET THE FACTORY NAV! Use the nav built in to your phone! It's WAY better than any factory nav, and it always is up to date. I made sure to get the Android Auto function updated into the radio before I left the dealer yesterday.
I like the route I chose for my LS, installed a Nexus 2013 tablet, Waze, google maps and other endless apps. No real complaints. Going to mess with Alexa and or Google assistant for voice commands later this week when I have time.
