: Google Maps from phone to speakers

03-24-13, 11:36 PM

I have a 2013 SRX luxury w/out nav, so I was interested in being able to use my phone's navigation with the car over bluetooth. I have attempted this with no success using an iPhone 5 (both Google Maps and Apple Maps). On the phone it shows Cadillac Cue as the connected bluetooth device for reading the directions, but nothing is coming through. I have yet to try this with an android device.

Any ideas? Is this not possible? Or am I not doing something right within CUE/the phone.

Do you have the CUE update? It won't work without it.

Yes the dealer gave it the update when we got the car (I know because i have the updated weather icon and siri integration).

I tried it once with my andriod phone and with CUE audio set to bluetooth. It worked ok but I couldn't listen to music at the same time, just the driving directions. Bert

You can listen to your Google Maps navigation over Bluetooth. One your phone is paired via Bluetooth, make sure your audio is set to play from Bluetooth device and all audio coming from the phone will play through the vehicle speakers.

Ahh ok I think I know what you mean now, change the source the same place where I would switch between FM, AM, XM etc.

Change Media to Bluetooth. You can actually listen to Pandora at the same time, and your phone should turn down Pandora for your navigation application to give new directions. With media on Bluetooth, any audio from the phone plays through the car. I just tried it out with Netflix today. Nothing beats the rear seat entertainment system in the 2013 SRX, but if you don't have that, this works just fine.

Oh wow, thanks for the tip, since I was actually hoping to do something like that if we happen to decide to not renew our onstar subscription.

Many people prefer Google Maps over OnStar. I feel the turn-by-turn directions are all the same. At least the smartphone app is free.
