Global Positioning
System (GPS)
The position of the vehicle is
determined by using satellite
signals, various vehicle signals, and
map data.
At times, other interference such as
the satellite condition, road
configuration, condition of the
vehicle, and/or other circumstances
can affect the navigation system's
ability to determine the accurate
position of the vehicle.
The GPS shows the current position
of the vehicle using signals sent by
GPS Satellites. When the vehicle is
not receiving signals from the
satellites, a symbol appears on the
map screen. See Navigation
Symbols on page 51.
This system might not be available
or interference can occur if any of
the following are true:
.
Signals are obstructed by tall
buildings, trees, large trucks,
or a tunnel.

Infotainment System
Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation of the
infotainment system features.
Voice recognition can be used when
the radio is on or when Retained
Accessory Power (RAP) is active.
See “Retained Accessory Power
(RAP)” in the owner manual. The
system maintains a minimum
volume level.
Using Voice Recognition
1. Press b / g on the steering
wheel. The audio system mutes.
A voice prompt states, “Please
say a command.” Wait until the
tone is heard before speaking.
If there is no tone, make sure
that the volume is turned up.
While voice recognition is active,
the system displays a g symbol
in the top right of the screen.
2. Clearly speak one of the
commands listed later in this
section.
Press b / g twice on the steering
wheel to skip the voice prompt
messages.
Canceling Voice Recognition
1. Press and release $ / i on
the steering wheel control to
cancel a command, if the system
response does not match the
voice command, or say
“Goodbye” or “Cancel.”
(frequency),” saying “Tune FM
87.7” or “Tune FM” are both
valid commands.
.
When the command is
recognized, the system will
either perform the function or
ask to confirm the choice.
.
When the system does not
recognize the command, the
system says “Pardon.”
.
If experiencing difficulty with the
system recognizing a command,
confirm that the command is
correct. Try saying the command
clearly or wait for a brief moment
after the tone.
.
Background noise such as a
climate control fan positioned on
high, open windows, and very
loud outside noises, even if the
windows are closed, can cause
voice commands to be
misunderstood.
.
The system is able to recognize
commands in different
languages, such as English,
2. The system replies, “Goodbye.”
Helpful Hints for Speaking
Commands

When multiple commands are
available, choose the command
that works best for you.

Words in parentheses are
optional. For example, for the
command “Tune FM

language selected.
.
.
Black plate (74,1)
To increase or decrease the
voice volume during a voice
recognition session, turn the
volume knob of the radio,
or press the volume steering
wheel control. If the volume is
adjusted during a voice
recognition session, a Volume
bar appears on the screen
showing the voice volume level
as it is being adjusted. This also
changes the volume of the
guidance prompts.
When using navigation
commands, take the time to
become familiar with the
address. Long delays when
giving the address can result in
the system not recognizing the
address or routing to different
location than intended.
.
.
When providing the house
number portion of the address,
the system recognizes both digit
format and numerical text. An
example would be to say,
“3-0-0-0-1” or “Thirty
Thousand One.”
If the system provides
destination in another country on
several attempts, say the
“Change Country” command and
say the country of interest. The
country default is the United
States. To enter a destination in
Canada or Mexico, the country
will first have to be changed in
the system.
