If you’ve considered buying a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, this news will apply to you. For the 2012 model year, GM has cut the price tag of the Cruze’s optional navigation system, which will come with a touch screen interface and improved screen resolution compared to the unit in the 2011 model, to a mere $995.
So, how was GM able to bring the price of the navigation system down while improving it? By swapping the 10-gig hard drive-based system for one using SD storage. Unfortunately, a side effect of the switch results in the discontinuation of the ability to pause/record live radio.
The new nav option will be available on any 2012 Cruze 2LT, LTZ and Eco due out later this month.
