    2006 SRX Turn-by-Turn Nav

    I recently bought an SRX and it came with a 3 month On Star trial. I like the OnStar features but if I can't take advantage of the turn by turn directions sent to Nav unit, I don't think I'll subscribe. Does anyone know why they aren't able to send directions to the navigation unit? As it is now all I can do is record them as they read the directions to me. Then just play back. If there is a fix that anyone knows of please let me know. Thank you in advance.

    That was then, this is now...

    The OnStar technology installed in our generation SRX's is about 2 generations behind in technology to the current version of OnStar Systesms. the NEW SRX is able to receive data blocks from OnStar downloaded directly into the Nav Unit. But ours is not.

    No - - the communication buss in our SRX's can not handle an upgrade to the latest Onstar - and neither can our current Nav Unit.

    We will also never be able to unlock our doors with an IPhone OnStar App - - but you can call OnStar and they can open your doors.

    Now, if you are getting the "Connections and Directions" plan... Onstar will "Talk" you though with driving instructions in-sync, while you drive.

    In my personal opinion :: The cost of the plan is ridiculous, for what you get! So I do not have it - in fact I dont' have OnStar turned on at all.

    Get a Garmin Nuvi - - it does what you want to do.

    Thank you. I am now sure that I will not be subscribing to OnStar. Thanks for the info.
