    I don't use the Garmin in my CTS but the Garmin gives me an appreciation of what could be if GM brought their system up to that standard.

    Well my 2013 update went on fine. After doing the software updates in the beginning, dont forget to select the DISC tab to see install of NAV map. Install took the usual time and based on my traveling it took about 3 days. One enhancement I want to check on is when you have the screen split and setup for viewing map and audio - to see if this setup lasts across engine starts. Always slightly annoying to have everything setup only to lose it when you stop for something and turn the engine off and then back on - and see the wrong display. I did also see a slight GPS bug travelling down a highway - said to turn left at fork - well there aint no fork - but after passing the bogus turn, it continued on correctly. I did as well have to send directions twice from Onstar mobile app. Nothing about trip/dest came up after first attemp. Possibly caused by car being in garage or maybe because I used remote start(which does not start radio). Having keyless ignition makes install more tedious as you cannot leave window open and turn car off - let update continue using RDS function - then reach in a restart car. You of course have to open door and put foot on brake. Which stops the update momentarily.
    So now where's Gracenotes? And wonder when next update will come out now that they are off the regular spring update.

    Do you lose all your stored addresses when you update? Right now it's on sale for $159.99. Also, when you update, can you just put the disk in (in your garage), put a battery tender on the car, and go watch TV for a couple hours? Or do you have to sit there and watch for "prompts"? Thanks

    Even $159.99 is too much in my book.

    You dont lose any stored directions/routes, but you need to review your CONFIG setup for Sound, etc., as the software resets some of the configurables settings. No -you dont have to sit and watch - no prompts - just hate running the car so long so I take breaks and use the 10 minute RDS feature after car is turned off and sometimes run it using accessory mode, keeping an eye on the battery charging gauge.

    Don't have to turn the engine on. Just turn the key 1 click toward you and the power stays on. I installed the whole DVD in less than 2 hrs.

    I just ordered it figuring it will probably be the last update offered for this generation CTS. I have an early 2010 CTS with a 2009 version of the map. Based on the 2014 prices I've seen for the new CTS I think I'm going to keep my 2010 longer. I did order a new 2014 Jeep Wrangler though. They are more fun than the CTS .

    My last update took me over 80 attempts at installation. That's why I am reluctant to get this one. My other voice is telling me the same thing: this is the last one.

    Based on what others have stated here plus the discounted price tells me that this may in fact be the last update for our cars.

    Yes, it will be my last update. I am studying the option of iPad mini mirroring my iPhone for Nav and all other features.

    Any definite reasons to think GM would not continue updates for at least a few years since they're still selling the car this year? Not that it matters that much to me since, to the extent I depend on GPS, I use far better apps on the iPhone/Pad. I just wouldn't like to see GM abandoning component support on a current, or near current, model. I know they have to supply parts for the duration of any outstanding warranties, but software support is an interesting question.

    Re: New 2013 NAV Disc Update - no problems/newer maps

    Thanks for the reply. I may put the disk in and put a battery charger on the car. I can't believe GM doesn't give you any directions with this. I had to dig out the manual and search for it. Is it that hard to put in a slip of paper telling me what you guys just did? This is my first Caddy and maybe the last!

    ----------

    I got my disk installing now. The manual says to " enter your authorization code", I found out that means "password" . I turned the ignition on and put a battery charger on. Was 8% done when I came upstairs to do other things. Hope this works. I wish these car companies worked a deal with Garmin where you could update with a thumb drive or something simple. This is why I didn't get the GPS built in on my new Equinox.
