: 2008 escalade nav screen tilt

11-03-11, 05:13 PM
This is my first post.....hello to everyone.

Just had my factory nav/radio system replaced under warranty. When the wife picked it up, she calls and says the screen is sunken, and not tilted forward flush with the dash. Maybe I'm an idiot, but I don't see any tilt button to adjust the screen anywhere?

Any ideas?

New ones dont have that feature anymore.

well then the dealer must have broken it when installing. the screen is actually straight up and down. the top of the screen is flush with the trim piece, but there is a 1" gap at the bottom. the screen should lay at an angle with the bottom of the screen tilted forward.

Thanks for you help anyway

I thought tilt was '07 only but maybe if yours is an early production '08 it might tilt?? If so, the button is to the right of the volume knob. It is a verticle button that is about 1/2 inch long with arrows. The tilt on mine is only about a 1/2 inch so since yours is about an inch they may have damaged it. Sorry I don't have a better discription but I'm not with mine right now. I hope it helps!!

Didn't you guys press every button after you go the truck just to see what they did? :cool2: That is like the first thing I did the entire drive home.

This questions has been answered many times I know by me, as said I like to have every button figured out before I leave the dealership, and to make sure everything is working. :)

Guys I have a 2011 Escalade and have that same button but it doesn't seem to do anything. What is that button used for on the 2011's?

I don't have one on my 2010, 2011 or 2012's, I thought my 09' was the last that tilted :confused:

Welcome to the forum! Did you talk to the dealer about this yet? If it is something that they messed up they should fix it. Let us know what you find out.

Just picked up my new baby, 2011 sts and it had the tilt button where they said, to the rite of the volume.

Too bad this is NOT the STS forum. Revive the dead on your side of the house. ;)

Well for what it is worth, the Nav unit used on the escalade pictured looks exactly like the Nav unit used in the 2005-2011 STS (well physically anyways, looks like its running a different OS ours has a STS Bose Studio Surround splash screen at boot).
AFAIK the Tilt button works on all STS models, even replaced ones... not sure why they would remove that feature for the Escalade.
Oh yeah, wait it does make perfect sense since its GM after all ... the 2002-2005 Deville/Seville with OEM Nav had a tilt button but it was only enabled for Export models, yet domestic versions were still labeled 'tilt' under the eject button ...

2009 was the last of the nav tilt button.
