Today we drove our Volt 121 EV miles and 2 gas miles. We are still at 89% EV miles so far (lifetime).
We are enjoying android Auto mapping on the big car screen running for a fast cell phone is great.
It pauses the music to tell the directions the resumes it after.
I no car Nav systems do this but Android Auto was not extra cost and works better than any build Nav system I have used. You can use Waze or google maps.

We have a place at lake Hartwell and it is 55 miles away.
My wife drove home yesterday and made it 55 miles with a couple miles left over with AC running the whole time.

Very sweet to drive this far on solar power way. Maybe someday I will get solar out there.
The meter charge is like $30 out there and you can't offset it. Crazy expensive power out there.

This new Volt is so comfortable we have been taking it on longer trips. We have 9,500 miles so far and not one issue with it.
