Testimonial: "I have the in dash Navigation, Radio, DVD, XM unit. The answer from the GMFORUM doesn't seem to apply here. I can get to a hidden menu by pressing the MENU button for about 10-15 seconds that shows a CALIBRATE selection but then I don't know what to do from there. There is just a blue screem with a + symbol in the upper left corner."

    My car does not have a compass in the DIC (Driver Information Center.) The compass is in the upper left corner of the navigation screen. Thanks, Lee

    Hello Lee,

    Here is the link for the 2011 GMC Acadia navigation system operating manual which supplements the owner manual.

    Thanks. This is the manual that goes with my navigation unit. On page 68 on of the possible problems listed is "the current position calibration is set incorrectly." This seems to be my problem with the unit. Now I need to learn how to get it set correctly. The manual tells me "If problems are experienced... see your dealer." I was hoping to calibrate it myself but I may be out of luck.

  • jackdo2 Aug 16, 2017

    Hello Lee, I believe the notation "if problems are experienced, see your dealer" refers to a situation when you run into a problem calibrating your unit.

    You may still be able to sort things out by following the manuals calibration instructions.

    Good luck Lee, best regards.

SOURCE: GMC Acadia Battery?

I have been having this problem after 40K miles now. I dont know if its the battery or the fact that GM, in all its infinate wisdom (NOT) decided to use a LAN system for everything in the car. This means that EVERY circuit is ALWAYS powered, whether the car is on or not. This is why, if you try to find a switchable fuse to tap into for a radar detector or Garmin you wil be unsuccessful. Also, this is why the cigarette lighters always on. Im not sure what the actual load is on the system when the car is off due to the LAN being powered, but it could be enough to kill the battery after a couple days if the alternater hasnt been run to charge it up.

i have had a radar detector hooked up for about a year now which is ALWAYS on, even when the car is off and it has finally started to take its toll on the battery, I think. The problem isnt your specific car, its the way they designed ALL of them.

SOURCE: 2008 GMC acadia has water leaking from sunroof , how do i fin the drain hose?

The drain hoses typically run from the 4 corners of the pan around the sunroof. Usually the blockage is from the top side, so open the sunroof and clean from there. Some applications require that you drop the ceiling material for access.

2011 acadia when taking foot off the gas pedal there is a knocking noise

The front motor mount and the upper engine strut mount both commonly fail. Start engine and have someone rev engine and let off while you look to see if either mount is moving excessively. The noise you are describing it is likely either or both the mounts.
