OnStar and Google have reached a deal that will let OnStar users search for and find places using Google Maps and send those destinations to the Turn-by-Turn Navigation service in their vehicles.

OnStar eNav will be available on Google Maps at the end of June. Users can access the destinations at any time and get OnStar directions to the destination from wherever they are.

"eNav is a perfect solution for subscribers who like the flexibility of being able to use Google Maps to plan their trips in advance, but without the hassle of bringing printed maps into the vehicle," said Nick Pudar, OnStar vice president of new business development.

"The eNav feature of our Turn-by-Turn service allows drivers to keep their eyes, hands and minds where they need to be – on the road."

The Google Maps option will be available on all current Turn-by-Turn capable GM vehicles starting with the 2006 model year and will also integrate with OnStar Destination Download to send destinations to the vehicle’s screen-based navigation system.

Last month OnStar and Google introduced mobile mapping and location functions for the Chevrolet Volt electric car that uses the Google Android Platform.

    BAD BAD idea. I know I’m not the only one who’s been mislead by Google maps. OnStar has always been more reliable.

    Why does everybody ride Google like the goddamn village (global) bicycle?

    Will there be any sort of customization done or will this point to a different database of Google Maps?
    What I mean is will a Google & OnStar search return act like it does now and provide results based upon the most center point of a city or will OnStar and Google talk to each other and get a result that is based on the vehicle location and get the closest search result?
