The location information (streets, Points of Interest, etc.) on a vehicle’s navigationsystem ages at a rate of 10%-20% per year. As the map data becomes out of date, thefunctionality of the navigation system declines. Offering GM customers new map updateswill ensure that the customers have the latest information for their system.
Map updates can be purchased from the GM Navigation Center in two ways:GM Navigation Disc Center 1-877-628-3472Via the web through gmnavdisc.com

Technical Service Bulletins are sometimes generated to address specific navigationradio operational or performance issues. When a navigation radio bulletin is issued,it may contain instructions to install an advanced vehicle navigation (AVN) softwareupdate with a specific part number. GM dealers must order advanced vehicle navigation(AVN) software update discs from the Nav Disc Center, as directed in the specificbulletin.
AVN software update discs are for the dealer to update the navigation radio softwareonly. They do NOT update or replace the navigation map disc that is supplied withthe vehicle. Please order these parts only as needed. There is a limited supply ofthese discs available, so dealers may only order one of a specific part number. Donot order these discs for stock. AVN software update discs can be used to reprogrammore than one vehicle.Software update discs are free of charge; dealers are required to pay for shipping.
