The newer HDD system has a single slot player for the navigation DVD or CD, as well as AM/FM/XM (if vehicle is equipped with XM) Radio. The user-friendly, 6.5-inch LCD touch screen also makes address inputs quick and easy. The HDD is a specially designed, highly durable, automotive version of the hard drive that you have in your personal computer. It is used to store digital music and other information that you might use while you're driving. It also may include Gracenotes, which is music software that will display information about the track currently playing on your vehicle's sound system, including the artist's name, the song title, and the album title on which the song was released.

I'm not sure which vehicle you were searching for, but the 2012 Tahoe offers a 2012 navigation disc. However, the latest update for the 2009 Tahoe's is currently the 2011 navigation disc.

Updates will be posted to: GM Nav Disc Center - Program Overview or by calling the toll-free number at 1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472), 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Default okay

So, the new HDD is only for storing music? Something that any 6 year old with an ipod already can do...

How much market research led you to believe that your target demographic didn't already own an ipod?
Yea, that's what people 30-55 want. something else to load up with mp3s, when they don't even know what a mp3 is!

Didn't the MyGig do this way back in 2006?

Your only 6 years behind the competition... that's... that's... something.. right?

So... from what I understand is, someone at GM saw this page (from 6 years ago) and said "we can do that"

http://www.gizmag.com/go/6199/

then... 6 years later... they did?

From what I've read on this forum the ipod/GM integration isn't working too well...





And it's most likely a laptop SATA hard drive. 2.5" so one could rip it out and throw in a bigger one if the kindergarten OS doesn't complain.

But, thank you for elaborating, shame that this 'new' feature is so old... Can you describe for us technology provided by GM that we haven't seen for 6 years? And if you describe the burst into flames letdown of a hunchback known as the Volt I might just vomit on my keyboard... It's a plug in hybrid. Toyota beat you to it. The engine has a direct power path to the wheels. It's old school.

After using a Garmin in my RV, I'm wondering why GM continues to use a DVD based system that can't even get the voice recognition to work. Plus they'd save money. If my radio display wasn't on the screen, I'd just mount the Garmin there.

Taking it in next week (again) and leaving so they can see how when it's cold, it shows the "No GPS" symbol and sometimes doesn't even know where it is.

Maybe they pull a Microsoft and just quit supporting the "old" Nav system.

PS: I liked your first version of Post #13.

I received much of the same information already posted, but was able to get a bit more. The 2012 Navigation disc is currently unavailable for Tahoe's. The latest version of the Tahoe disc is the 2011. There is currently no release date for the 2012 Tahoe discs, however, the Customer Service Rep stated that more often than not new discs are available shortly after the first of the year. When the 2012 disc is available for Tahoe's, it will be posted to their website for purchase. Check their site periodically for updates at: GM Nav Disc Center - Program Overview

Note: The 2012 disc (part # 22827639), currently available on the site is not compatible with the Tahoe.

If there are any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

I try to keep it professional and on-topic, but sometimes even I slip.

I don't know why I bother other than my own entertainment...

I've thought many a time about creating a car site where you enter any make/model/year and I give you the info on what's wrong with the thing. I could pick anything apart.

I 2nd the whole voice thing. WAZE on my iphone can say street names... as can my friend's 6 year old child.... GM headunits however continue on with the programming equivalent of 20 monkeys glued to an etch-a-sketch.


..But I digest.

I'll attempt not to berate the customer service person for pointing out the painfully obvious fact that I can 'keep checking' the web site. I was, after all, with my 10+ years in I.T. unaware that I could, for example, but obviously not limited to, re-check a web site, and say, perhaps if that web site was even slightly useful, unlike most GM web sites, that haven't been updated since JFK was around, it may possibly, or even conceivably contain pertinent information similar to the information I may be on the web site looking for.


I mean, right?

I just got a new AT&T cordless phone for the house and it actually speaks whatever is on the caller ID. Imagine that.
