    Probably has to do with the street level value of the area. Some side streets out in the rural areas aren't even shown on the map as I travel and CT isn't really rural. So addresses aren't listed everywhere either.

    So since the map isn't detailed enough, it doesn't let you add an address it doesn't have.

    What disc are you using.. You may need to get an updated disc.. I just got the latest one and before that I could not use the nav directions because recent on ramps and off ramps were not included on the old disc.. How new is you home?

    I put a Garmin in my ESV because the GM GPS is the biggest piece of junk.

    It is to bad GM couldn't have Garmin build the units for them.

    I have 4 GPS's and the GM is the worst by far!

    Are you saying the house number is not listed ? The system usually has a number range ie1-10000)? and your number does not fall with in the range or you are unable to pick house number? After you enter the street name it should give you a choice between house number or nearest cross intersection? You have to pick house number if that is what you want.
    I agree the GM system is lacking in all areas. My 2003 Accord's system is light years ahead of my 07 Lade's, even with the newest disc available.

    I totally agree, I hate this thing so much I am thinking of selling my truck. GM has made it nearly impossible to replace the unit with a decent looking aftermarket kit. I am looking into custom but by the time I do all that it may not be worth the $. I wish GM would wake up!

    I was in a prototype Taurus SHO this past winter , Ford has the entertainment center wrapped up nice . watched a live storm front w/ better graphics than cable TV . The car wasn't half bad either

    I live in the woods in upstate NY half the year, and the nav system and disc for my 10' shows the dirt roads around my house, my 08' and 09' does not do that, of course I do not know if it show the paved roads correctly, but was pretty amazed to see the dirt roads show up. My BMW has the worlds worst Nav system

    what you can do is while parked at your house, mark and save it. it will show the nearest registered road to your house.
