2011 Chevy Cruze: Navigating the Nav. System
November 26, 2010
During my recent road trip to Las Vegas and back in our new 2011 Chevy Cruze I put the sedan's navigation system to test, using it more than a dozen times. It never proved to be anything but easy to use and accurate.
First of all it found Las Vegas. But it also made it easy to find food along the way. Once in Vegas I used the Cruze's nav system to find an ATM, several hotels and a few restaurants and bars. Sometimes I chose to input the exact address. Other times I went by the name of the establishment. Either way it worked great, never steering me off into the land of frustration.
The only functional oddity about the Cruze's system is that is shares some buttons with the car's sound system. For instance, it asks you to push the sixth preset button on the sound system to set a destination and start the route guidance. Once you get used that (and the fact that it isn't a touch screen like you'll find in most other GM cars) it works wonderfully.
