Default Navigation Startup has changed

Owned vehicle over 1 year, LTZ model, V6 & navigation. At some point last fall, the startup sequence changed for navigation. When vehicle is started and navigation screen is accessed, I am forced to go through the startup screen with all the legal stuff. After pressing "OK" the navigation screen appears. Also, when "Destination" is spoken in voice commands, it always starts from Washington DC and the state has to be changed. Before last fall, when navigation was left on as the vehicle was turned off, the next day navigation would automatically come back on without the legal stuff. Also, my current location would be the correct state, not Washington DC, when I wanted to start a trip. Anyone else notice a change, as I can not find anything in the menu to change this status?

Wow that is weird. I have a LT2 so I do not have the Navigation. But there are others that do. Hopefully they will chime in soon.

I had to go through the startup screen with all the legal stuff when I first got my Terrain, then one other time when I had not used it for a week, other then that it just starts up.
I have not used voice commands yet, I guess I should try it out, the map has helped me out a few times but so far I always have a idea were I am going.

I continue to have the same original problem without a solution. I should have stated in my first post that it does not matter whether the unit is left in the "Navigation" full screen, or the "Radio" full screen. Upon startup, the unit defaults to the black legal screen. I can press the "I Agree" or press the radio button and the unit will become normal. If the car is turned off, and then immediatly back on, it will work. If it sits for 5 minutes or so then I have the problem. Anyone else with simular results or insight? Thanks

No idea as I have only had to click I agree 3 times in 3 months and I leave the nav screen up all the time.
Have you taken it to the dealer and had them check it out? Sounds like a memory problem, wonder if it has a battery that is used for memory that is not part of the main battery.

Hopefully you can get this figured out or worst case scenario the dealer can fix it for you.

Problem fixed by GM TSB PIO285. This TSB covers Chevy-Cadillac-Buick-GMC
Navigation systems in multiple vehicles 2010-2011. Their are 33 conditions addressed, ranging from the backup camera staying on, to clock inaccuracies. My vehicle had at least 3 of the problems. This TSB also includes IPOD sorting and playlists enhancements. All are problems are addressed through the USB port. If something seems to have changed from the way you remembered it, you may not be crazy after all.
After 22,000 miles now I keep finding ways the Nav system can enhance and entertain on trips. My biggest wish is that their was a confirmation button on the steering wheel, instead of having to lean forward to punch a button or screen list.
Also V6 on a trip is usually at around 22 or 23 MPG driving 70 to 75. Occasionally it will get 25 but I think that is when I get the rare tank of gas that does not contain ethonal. The trip computer is usually about 1 MPG optimistic.

Hi, I'm new to the site, I joined today, because I finally made up my mind to buy and Equinox!!!
My question is, do you find the extra cash for the Nav system is worth it?
I work in IT and am in love with Technology, so I think I'd love it and regret not getting it...

Thanks!!!
Megan

Here is a question for you Megan.


Do you have a smartphone or gps unit already? Personally I don't think its worth it. But I always use the gps on my droid.

Had all the TSB's installed fixed all the problems for about 3 months. The default Washington DC, losing the route when car is turned off and givint the system 'OK" every time I hit the navigation button have all come back. The dealers are puzzled and keep telling me nothing is wrong.

2010 LTZ 6 cyl about 27.5 pg on highway driving between 69 and 71 mph and usually 20 - 22 around town.

No it's not how it's supposed to work, might need to take it to a different dealer.
Might need to call GM.
