Lol. I got a 3 month trial when I purchased my PREVIOUS sts from a dealer. Still get their "offers" in the mail every month and now I don't own that car anymore.

I got a 6 month free trial but when I key press in, they say something about a weak signal & are unable to send turn by turn directions. I know my 06 STS didn't have that ability so I thought maybe the 08 didnt either.

Got it fixed! The advisor transferred me to technical support & apparently my software needed to be updated. Surprisingly, that didn't require a trip to the dealer. They were able to do it over the air. Turn by turn directions are now working! But I must admit, the nav system is way better!

I agree with the nav system being way better.
Out of curiosity, I called about functionality of using a smartphone to remote start the vehicle, check gasoline tank level, oil level, tire pressure- among others-
and was told it is not available for my 06 STS - not even with a "software/firmware upgrade".

In dash navigation is great as long as you don't live where a lot of infrastructure changes are being made. They won't offer any information on a nav disc update if you call, nor have they extended the courtesy of returning my emails. I'm annoyed with constantly driving in what appears to be big open fields. Turn by Turn is far better in that respect.
