GM Canada announces Maps+ The Newest App-Based Navigation Solution Across Canada

According to the J.D. Power 2021 Initial Quality Study, owners see app user experience as the third-most problematic feature of a new vehicle. The study found that users ranked remote controls, navigation assistance, service monitoring and statistical/diagnostic information as the most desirable features on an automaker’s app.

To offer a digital solution, GM Canada announced the launch of Maps+, an app-based navigation solution available across Canada, upgrading capabilities for select model year 2018 and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles, powered by Mapbox. Maps+ will be available to GM vehicles as part of select Connected Services plans as a simple in-vehicle app download. The Maps+ launch is a prime example of GM’s commitment to delivering the best in-class customer experiences throughout the lifetime of the vehicle while enabling a safer drive.
