    It does pay to be on good terms with the dealer(s) in your area. They can be a valuable resource.

    No, I am not a dealer, work for one, GM, or anyone in the auto business; never have been. I just know that people are more likely to be pleasent and helpful with friendly and honest people. And I don't advise anyone accept less than what they feel is right. It's possible to be insistent and still be nice about it.

    If they didn't really do anything for that $130, maybe they would activate a new unit for free or a lot less. It certainly doesn't take them much (as long as you have proof of purchase & ID.)

    Re: navigation issue please help!

    Okay so I got bored today and inserted a music CD inside the DVD ROM and this is what I got
    20130623_141342.jpg

    And whenever I put the map dvd in it displays "please insert map DVD" now if the dvd rom is broken it wouldn't have recognized the music CD as a non-map DVD now would it?

    Also, i did a little research about the firmware update and someone mentioned that in the new firmware update the MRC settings are located at the top of the screen, as you can see mine is still located at the bottom right hand corner.

    now I'm starting to believe that my local dealership had no idea about the update, and they charge me 130bucks for nothing. what do you guys think about this?

    The setting for MRC used to be buried in another area not on the main config screen. so you must already have the firmware update.

    Have you tried an alternate map disc?

    Pull the fuse to the Nav or just reset the whole car.

    Next time you get bored, go for a drive. If that doesn't help, apply WOT.

    No I haven't. I have no way of getting my hands on one without buying.
