One of the most infuriating things ever is that in my 2009 Tahoe you can't enter a destination while moving. I guess you're supposed to come to a complete stop in the middle of a highway and do the thing, holding up all traffic?
In my 2013 S and the wife's 2018 model 3, you just use the GPS.

What's it going to be on the ipace?

In our 2002 Jaguar S-Type you need to be stop to enter destination. Maybe Jaguar has changed it? Especially with Alexa voice built-in?

Yes, my 1998 Lexus has the same 'safety' feature, and it is infuriating. The I-Pace manual contains the following warning, which implies that you CAN enter destination while moving, but shouldn't. Hopefully, this is the case.

"WARNING
Do not adjust the touchscreen controls, or allow the system to distract the driver, while the vehicle is moving. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death."

Either way, this should not be a problem with Android Auto navigation.

I do know that our GM cars do not require stopping for navigation.
You push the button without taking your eyes off the road and ask them to download routing data to your car. Our 2009 CTS-V had this so I'm not sure why your Tahoe does not.
I don't even really to know exactly where I'm going since I'm talking with a human who knows where I'm at. "I need directions to the nearest pier" works.
With the Tesla, you must take your eyes off the road to see your driving instructions.

I was looking at an electric scooter (for one of the kids to commute to their summer job). it has a clip on the handlebars for your phone, using Bluetooth and all that it then "talks" to Google Maps or whatever and when you come to a junction the turn-signal-lights, in the ends of the handlebars, come on. Seemed pretty cool to me (so long as you don't decide "I know a better route" ...)

Sorry ... normal service can now resume :)

Seeing as how a lot of new infotainment systems can now be controlled by voice, I'm hoping these kinds of restrictions will become less common. Luckily since the I-Pace supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you should be able to utilize Google Maps, free of the navigation systems safety measures.
