    That sucks. When I first did mine, it was like yours, but after a couple of minutes of panicking, it updated itself, and worked great.
    Maybe in Nebraska there isnt as many towers to update (I dont know anything about how the satelite systems work) and you just need to give it more time, or take it to a urban area.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    Thank you sooo much for this awesome tip!!! My husband cut my wire on yesterday. I can't tell you how many times in the last 5 years that I have had to pull over so that I or my passenger could set the address for navigation. This feature is wonderful to have but we have to treat it just like texting, don't do it while driving, allow the passenger to.
    Thanks again,
    J.

    They must have changed something in 2006 to prevent this hack from working.
    Oh well. Glad its working again.

    This is indeed a great hack.
    I am very glad it worked for you.
    Did your NAV screen stop updating for a while like some others after you cut the green/white wire?
    I remember mine did this too but it started updating 5 minutes after I started driving.

    Mike, maybe try to cut the wire again, but this time drive the truck longer.
    Leave the wire cut for a day or 2 if u can live w/o the nav working that long.
    If it does not start working after that long, then you are out of luck.

    I would give it one more try.

    Once it starts updating again after the wire is cut, it never stops again.

    Let us know if you have the screen update problem after you cut the wire.
    If so drive the truck around until it starts again.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    My NAV screen only took a few minutes to update, as a matter of fact, we didn't even notice anything but a little blink.
    Thanks again for the tip.
    I am glad that I have found this site!

    Press the emergency Brake
    Put the truck in the lowest gear
    Tilt the steering wheel all the way down
    Gently pull off the dash bezel by hand starting in the upper left corner and work your way to the radio
    Work the bezel off around the wheel and set it aside.
    Now, only 3 screws hold in the radio.
    Unscrew them and the radio slides right out.
    10 minute job.
    No tools are required to remove the bezel.
    It just snaps on.

    I can give it another shot. I drive it about 20 minutes the first time. it did update 1 time and then froze up again and the GPS light stayed lit the entire rest of the drive. Then we went into dinner, came out and probably had another 30 minutes of drive and park time in it. 1 more update and froze up again. I then hooked the wore back up and within 2 minutes it was back to normal.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    I guess you could hook up a switch to open/close the wire.
    Open to enter addresses
    Closed to make Nav screen update.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    I'm assuming this is the touch screen version right?

    I've got an '03 with a Delphi unit, and it's touchscreen. Will this work for me too?

    I don't want any issues with the nav system.

    Does it still show you how long until you arrive at your destination?

    I just checked for the 2003 Escalade and YES, it is the same wire on that year radio.
    Connector C2, Pin E
