Exactly this.

 

 

 

 

Not necessarily.  It works for some and not for others.  I have the free 5 year Basic plan and mine does NOT let me download a route just like Thomcat's post I quoted above.

Never said that the 5 year plan lets you download a route for this you need OnStar plus the additional Navigation/routes package.....it doesn't

 

The free OnStar 5 year basic/MyChevrolet only shows a map of where your vehicles is located. What I said was that you can do a Google map search and set directions for a preset route while in your home or somewhere else using the AutoAndroid app in your cellphone, and then when you plug your cellphone into the '16/'17s vehicle's USB port and touch the AutoAndroid app in the 8" MyLink screen the route will upload to the MyLink and all the Google GPS related voice commands active through the vehicle's command sysem. Similarly all the phone's automute, dialing, contacts, and music mp3s etc accessible simultaneously through the MyLink/AA interface. A real bummer it is not available for my '15 Traverse because it's 4.6" Nav screen is for crap.

 

 

Projection icon and AA function may not be available on all trucks even with an 8" MyLink screen.........seems GM ran out of AA capable HMI modules midyear for some Silvys/Sierras and for a period of time substituted modules without AA capability and for those the MSRP sticker  showed a $200 credit for the deletion.

Thomcat:

 

I agree with you.  The second part of my post was quoting TxTruckMan who stated that through the OnStar app, with just the Basic plan, he is able to download routes from the app to the in-dash nav.  He was not talking about Android Auto.

 

Again,  I quoted your entire earlier post because you nailed it.

 

 

TxTruckMan:

 

The OnStar app is no longer supported and has been replaced by individual apps for Chevy, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac.  Lucky for you if it still works.  I say use it as long as you can!!
