Has anyone tinted their windows with the nav system and had issues with Nav signal? The owners manual specifies that the rear window should not be tinted or it may interfere with the navigation system.

The Corvette manual has the same warning about the Nav signal and many, many of us owners have tinted our windows with absolutely no problems. Best advice is to use a ceramic based tint as it is non-metallic. Both my C6 and my '04 CTS have Nav and both have tinted windows. I'll be getting my '08 CTS windows tinted soon and I am absolutely not worried about Nav problems.

:cheers:

The navigation antenna for the radio system is mounted under the dash, similar to previous years. The traffic navigation antenna is mounted on the top of the front windshield.

From what I can see as long as you don't mess with the windshield you should be fine.
