With out posting a book, I'll give you brief instuctions.

Go to your nav screen. You should be able to click on the button next to the checkered flag on the right side. Enter Road Atlanta. You'll get as far as Road A before the selections come up. Move the right knob until you see Road Atlanta and push it in. In about 30 seconds you'll have your directions.

While on NAV screen push in the right knob and your set up options will come up. If you want verbal guidence, select guidence.

Addresses are a little trickier but easy once you get use to it. PM me if you have any questions. I'll give out my phone number and you can call me if you want.

The NAV system can find hotels, ATMs, food, whatever you want. Even a specific type of food closest to you.

Be aware that you can only program the Nav, or make programming changes, if the car is stopped. If it is moving, you will not be able to access the necessary information for programming. Another "improvement" brought to you by the Trial Lawyers of America.

Hi... When in Atlanta you might want to check if Caddy has something special for us, like parking etc. I went last year and parked near the Corvette people. Check with Atlanta's dealers, I think one is Henessy. Good Luck.

Better yet, buy a PDA. Use the PDA program to make your travel list while sitting comfortably at your computer. Keyboard entry is so much nicer. Then download to the PDA. Take the PDA to your V, sit down and transfer via the infrared window. Take care. The NAV computer requires viciously precise IDs. Road usually requires 'RD', North East must me NE......

I noticed the owners manual say this works with a "Palm"...I have a Dell PDA that doesn't use the "Palm" software...it uses windows so will it transfer from non "Palm" PDAs?

So that actually works? I've tried it with my Treo 600 (palm os) and it never works. I haven't gotten to the part about worrying about format, they never seem to recognize each other.
