Navigation Systems: Where Exactly Are We Going?
One in every five car purchases ends up being a GM product. With that sort of gravitas, the automaker has developed a wealth of information regarding its drivers’ habits. 

The automaker recently opened its vault of information just a little bit to show us where people are seeking directions to via the OnStar system. In July alone, GM delivered nearly 2 million route destinations to its OnStar subscribers. Of those 2 million, the most popular destination ended up being ... drum roll, please ... Wal-Mart. 

That should come as no surprise. The ubiquitous blue-box is the largest retailer in the country, after all. The rest of the list is interesting and telling as to how people use an on-demand service like OnStar and perhaps other navigation systems. One can surmise from the bank, hotel, fast-food and coffee inquires that OnStar is mainly used for road-tripping, because you should know where those are in your local community. Check out the full list, then tell us in the comments what you often use your navigation for.
