Yes, check the FAQ site, it's listed there.

What?!? That's news to me.

So, we can finally enter addresses into the NAV GPS while the vehicle is moving?

I'm not so sure about that... I don't think that there's a way to do so. I checked the faq and didn't see anything to that effect. I very well could have missed it though...

Kadonny, can you point us in the right direction... This would be huge, but I am afraid that it remains an open issue. It would be so helpful to be able to have my wife work the nav controls while we're cruising...

Uh... where EXACTLY are you seeing this in the FAQ?!?

Unless you misread the original poster, I didn't think this was possible.

Once the car is moving, the nav will "disable" certain input's (such as typing an address)... Is there a way to "bypass" this to make the Nav think the car is NOT moving?




If this IS possible, I can't believe I missed it!!!!

I think Kadonny is referring to watch dvd's while driving.

Yeah, my bad, misread the post. Sorry.

You can watch a DVD but you cannot enter addresses... VERY dumb since my passenger could be doing it (hell tie it into the airbag sensor on the passenger seat- USE TECHNOLOGY!)... Cost me an extra 25 miles of driving on tuesday!

No offense to some of you, but I HATE lawyers sometimes.. and GM has a lot of them.

Exactly. On my Garmin 2620 that I use in my other cars, it will let you disable that protection, and what's more it has a remote so the passenger can do anything to the GPS without having to lean forward. Why is it that aftermarket stuff is head and sholders above OEM stuff.

I guess those people only sue the American car makers, as BMWs, Mercedes, Acura, etc. all let you enter nav inputs while moving. I guess that's why our cars 'bong' when you do anything too.

Maybe GM just listens to its army of lawyers more than most car companies do. I can almost picture some German car executive slapping down a lawyer arguing to make the nav useless for finding anyplace while moving...

Stella Awards
The Stellas are named after 81 year old Stella Liebeck who spilled
coffee on herself and successfully sued McDonald's. That case inspired
the Stella Awards for the most frivolous successful lawsuits in
theUnited States. Unfortunately the most recent lawsuit implicating
McDonald's, the teens who allege that eating at McDonald's has made them
fat, was filed after the 2004 award voting was closed. This suit will
top the 2004 awards list without question.

THIS YEAR'S AWARDS GO TO:

5th place (Tied).
Kathleen Robertson ofAustin,Texaswas awarded $780,000 by a jury of her
peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running
inside a furniture store. The owners of the store were understandably
surprised at the verdict, considering the misbehaving toddler was Ms.
Robertson's Son.

5th place (Tied). +
19 year old Carl Truman ofLos Angeleswon $74,000 and medical expenses
when his neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Mr.Truman
apparently did not notice there was someone at the wheel of the car when
he was trying to steal the hubcaps.

5th place (Tied).
Terrence Dickson ofBristol,Pennsylvaniawas leaving a house he had just
finished robbing by way of the garage. He was not able to get the garage
door to go up since the automatic door opener was malfunctioning. He
could not re-enter the house because the door connecting the house and
garage locked when he pulled it shut. The family was on vacation and Mr.
Dickson found himself locked in the garage for 8 days. He subsisted on a
case of Pepsi he found and a large bag of dry dog food. He sued the
homeowner's insurance claiming the situation caused him undue mental
anguish. The Jury agreed to the tune of $500,000.

4th place.
Jerry Williams ofLittle Rock,Arkansaswas awarded $14,500 and medical
expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbor's
Beagle dog. The Beagle was on a chain in its owner's fenced yard. The
award was less than sought because the jury felt the dog might have been
a little provoked at the time as Mr. Williams, who had climbed over the
fence into the yard, was shooting it repeatedly with a pellet gun.

3rd place.
APhiladelphiarestaurant was ordered to pay Amber Carson
ofLancaster,Pennsylvania$113,500 after she slipped on a soft drink and
broke her coccyx (tailbone). The beverage was on the floor because Ms.
Carson had thrown it at her boyfriend 30 seconds earlier, during an
argument.

2nd place.
Kara Walton ofClaymont,Delawaresued the owner of a Night Club in a
neighboring city when she fell from the bathroom window to the floor and
knocked out two of her front teeth. This occurred while Ms. Walton was
trying to sneak in the window of the Ladies Room to avoid paying the
$3.50 cover charge. She was awarded $12,000 and dental expenses.

1st Place.
This year's runaway winner was Mr. Merv Grazinski ofOklahoma
City,Oklahoma. Mr. Grazinski purchased a brand new Winnebago Motorhome.
On his trip home from an OU football game, having driven onto the
freeway, he set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the
driver's seat to go into the back and make himself a cup of coffee. Not
surprisingly the RV left the freeway, crashed and overturned.
Mr.Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising him in the owner's manual
that he could not actually do this. The jury awarded him $1,750,000 plus
a new Winnebago Motorhome. The company actually changed their manuals on
the basis of this suit just in case there were any other complete morons
buying their recreational vehicles.

Does anyone know the actual criteria that the 'nanny' uses to allow you to enter in the address data?

I know for sure that the emergency brake must be engaged. Is there anything else? (does it actuall check to make sure the car isn't in gear, and/or that the MPH is at zero?)

If it's just the e-brake sensor, then it would be possible to engage it just enough to trip the sensor (i.e. enough to make the PB light in the dash go on), and not enough to actually engage the brake. This might let you accomplish what you want. Or you could tap into the sensor, and run a button to the dash, that would let you push the button & fool the nanny into allowing you to enter the address.

'Don't sue me caveat': What I suggest is a possible work around, but certainly not recommened. I certainly wouldn't suggest driving much with the e-brake set one click (probabaly wouldn't cause much, if any wear, but still). Worse case scenario, of course, is you do a nice set of 360's, and end up a fireball after tail-boning a jersey wall at 85 MPH and exploding , because you were to lazy too pull over to the shoulder & stop the car to actually set the address you wanted to go to.

Food for thought, or fuel for fire?

^^ e-brake doesn't have to be on, and you CAN be in gear...you just have to be stopped. So, is it pulling speed from the gps antenna?? or the wheel speed sensor?...my bet is on the GPS antenna, only because if you notice it lags a little bit, so when your in-dash speedometer says 0, the nav may still think your doing 1-3mph....theres always a lag...and I think the only way to get around it is to reprogram the nav "somehow".

I contacted them via email and was advised that they do not have a solution for the 2006 CTS-V. Really hope that changes as the lockout is a pain.

As long as there is interest they will make it, so we need to inform them of our interest in getting this made for us.

As far as I know, the IR interface on the CTS-V Navigation system communicates only with devices that use the same IR protocol as Palm devices. Any thing that use an IR communication protocol other than the Palm protocol apparently does not work. I have been able to successfully transfer data with all of my Palm devices, but since I have no non-Palm devices with an IR port, I cannot test this. However, any one who has a non-Palm device seems to be unable transfer data.

i wonder if that pin is transferable to a new nav. If i get one from the buttons bieng replaced can i use the pin on the new nav?

I've done it with a Dell Axim.
