: Downloading Routes From Mapquest/Google

02-15-11, 11:06 AM
Some GPS units have the ability to download routes generated in Mapquest or Google Maps into the GPS. Can this be done for the navigation system in a 2011 SRX and, if so, where can I get the instructions?

You must have the Directions and Connections Plan or be in your trial period with OnStar for this to work. It is not part of the OnStar Safe and Sound Plan.

I'm sorry that I was not clear in my original post. I was not talking about the OnStar system but the onboard GPS navigation system.

The directions are downloaded from OnStar into the Nav system in the SRX. You look up the directions in Google Maps or Mapquest. Otherwise, there is no way to get them into the Nav unit.

I was not talking about using OnStar for turn-by-turn directions.

Did you read the instructions I posted?

Thanks, stevec5375. I do not intend to use OnStar after the free period. I was hoping there was some way to bypass using it.
