    Nav System 2014 CTS Sedan

    Does anyone know the correct procedure to add custom POI's to the Nav system on the 2014 CTS Sedan? The Infotainment System manual " Part No. 23127537 B Second Printing" on page 75 explains how to create a CSV file to import. The example is incorrect and I have experimented with different formats too no success. I have talked with the customer assistance people and the only answer they could give me was to build my route in MapQuest and upload it to OnStar and then use virtual advised and eNav to down load it. This is very inconvenient and slow, OnStar only lets you have 5 destinations at a time and saving and renaming them in the Nav system is not friendly.

    How about using the phone app to send it to vehicle, then saving that info?

    The OnStar solution won't work, because it only accepts uploaded destinations, not routes which include waypoints. And like the OP said, you're limited to 5 destinations per OnStar account, no matter how many vehicles you have on the account.

    I actually think it's useless, because you could just speak your destination to your onboard nav and it will figure out your route in a matter of seconds and take you there. Why go to the trouble of going online and using the cumbersome multistep process of sending your destination to your OnStar account? I suppose there are people who can't speak, but they can just enter their destination manually without On Star being in the way.

    I like the nav system and I especially like how you can pick something or someone out of your phone contacts list and it will navigate you there. What could be simpler.

    But there's one thing I don't like and they really need to improve it, and that's the very vague map itself. The roads are well presented, you see them easily, but the rest of the map is just an opaque shadow that's hard to see and doesn't give you much information anyway. When you're traveling you want to see where you are and what's around you, not just the roads. Imagine buying a paper map and all it had on it were the road outlines and nothing else. That would be one crappy map!

    Hi Jhduca. I tried this today for the first time and it worked well. A lot easier than going through OnStar, but it seems again that you just get to a single destination, no way to create a route.
