I tried connecting my iPhone 6 to the Bolt for the first time the other day, wanting to try out the navigation function. Although I didn't go much further than watching the map on the dash screen, (using the iPhone's native mapping app) it appears like it'll work well.
I laid the phone on the dash, so it had a clear view of the sky, with the top of the phone pointing forward. Seems to me that's about optimum. However, there was nothing keeping the phone from sliding right off the dash.
What do others do to use the phone for navigation? Am I on the right track, or am I overthinking things? I understand that one can use Google Maps and Wayz apps also, is that true? Do you program your destination strictly by voice?
FWIW: I have had my Bolt for 13 months/18000 miles and love it more every day. My only real complaint is the seat(s). It's quite gratifying to see how well thought-out the car is, particularly the controls. Except for the "shift lever", that's not so good.
