I want to connect my 2015 encore to my phones hotspot so I can update my software, but can't find the place in the car to see my phones hotspot and where to join the network.

Please advise.
Thank you

Do you mean the vehicle software?
You cannt update it through your phone.
Yes to update my software and navigation. I want to use connect my encore to my hotspot on my phone. I do not have the 4glte option on the encore. Buick/gmc says it can be done.

Ok, look in your 2015 owners and Intellilink manuals and then look in the 2020 manuals. Good luck.

You can only update the 2015 Navigation via USB port. No other option on their site, you pay and they send you a USB key. No use updating now, last version is 2018 and are sold out, you will have to wait for 2020 version.

The 2021 update for my 2019 Encore was on sale for $106.50, including tax and free 2 day FedEx shipping. I took advantage of the sale and bought the upgrade. It installed without issues.

Is there anyone who thinks GM Navigation is better than Android Auto Google Maps?

I haven't used the GM version at all since I use my smartphone for navi. And of course map updates are free. My guess is GM will discontinue its own exclusive Navigation system in the near future.

Not bad, still should be free.
So now that you paid that will you get your future updates free?

How did you find out about the sale and is it truly attached to your vin?
