Digital HD broadcasting signals are
weaker than the normal signal
strength of the analog station, so
HD listening may not deliver the

listening. The radio will indicate loss
of HD signal by displaying “No HD

Root Directory
File System and Naming
The root directory is treated as a
folder. All files contained directly
under the root directory are
accessed prior to any root directory
folders.
The song titles, artists, albums, and
genres are taken from the file's ID3
tag and are only displayed if present
in the tag. If a song title is not
present in the ID3 tag, the radio
displays the file name as the
track name.
Empty Folders
If a root directory or folder is empty
or contains only folders, the player
advances to the next folder in the
file structure that contains a
compressed audio file. The empty
folder(s) are not displayed or

automatically to save the battery
power if the RSE system and RSA
are shut off or if the headphones are
out of range of the transmitters for
more than three minutes. Moving too
far forward or stepping out of the
vehicle, can cause the headphones
to lose the audio signal.
For optimal audio performance, the
headphones must be worn correctly.
Headphones should be worn with
the headband over the top of the
head for best audio reception. The
symbol L (Left) appears on the
outside bottom edge of the ear cup
and should be positioned on the

Notice: Do not store the
headphones in heat or direct
sunlight. This could damage the
headphones and repairs will not
be covered by the warranty.
Storage in extreme cold can
weaken the batteries. Keep the
headphones stored in a cool,
dry place.
If the foam ear pads attached to the
headphones become worn or
damaged, the pads can be replaced
separately from the headphone set.
To purchase replacement ear pads,
call 1-888-293-3332, then prompt

following conditions:
.
The route prohibits the entry of a
vehicle due to a regulation by
time or season or any other
regulation that may be given.
.
Some routes might not be

new roads, if roads have
recently changed, or if certain
roads are not listed in the map
data. See Maps on page 54.

.
The route might not be changed
when using automatic rerouting.
.
There is no route guidance when
turning at an intersection.
.
Plural names of places might be
announced occasionally.
If the System Needs
Service
.
It could take a long time to
operate automatic rerouting
during high-speed driving.
If the navigation system needs

Map Data Updates
The map data in the vehicle is the

process, contact the GM Nav Disc
Center toll-free phone number,
1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472)
or go to the center's website,
www.gmnavdisc.com. If updates are
needed, call the GM Nav Disc
Center. To order map data, have the
vehicle's Vehicle Identification
Number (VIN) available. See
“Vehicle Identification Number

After receiving the updated map
data, see Maps on page 54.

Database Coverage
Explanations
Coverage areas vary with respect to
the level of map detail available for
any given area. Some areas feature
greater levels of detail than others.
If this happens, it does not mean
there is a problem with the system.
As the map data is updated, more
detail can become available for
areas that previously had limited
detail. See Map Data Updates on
page 77.
Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation within the
audio, and phone applications. This
feature can be started by pressing
either the g button on the steering
wheel or the voice recognition icon
on the touchscreen display.
Most voice commands except for
voice keypad, can be completed in
a single command. If the task takes
more than one command to
complete, the first command would
be to indicate the kind of task that is
to be performed. The system will
reply prompting dialog to help speak
the necessary information.
However, not all features within
these areas are supported by voice
commands. Generally, only complex
tasks which require multiple manual
interactions to complete are
supported by voice commands.
Voice recognition can be used when
the ignition is on or when Retained
Accessory Power (RAP) is active.
See “Retained Accessory Power
(RAP)” in the owner manual.
For example, tasks that take more
than one or two button presses such
as selecting a song or artist to play
from a media device would be
supported by voice commands.
Other tasks, like adjusting the
volume or seeking up or down are
audio features that are easily
performed by pressing one or two
buttons, and are not supported by
voice commands.
Voice recognition becomes
available once the system has been
initialized. Initialization takes place
once the ignition is turned on.
This may take a few moments.
Using Voice Recognition
1. Press g on the steering wheel
control to activate voice
recognition, or press the voice

recognition icon on the
infotainment touchscreen on
the radio.
.
.
If voice recognition is
started from the steering
wheel control, the radio
displays the selections and
visual dialog content. The
commands may then be
touched or spoken.
If voice recognition is
started from the
infotainment touchscreen
on the radio, the lists and
controls are verbal and the
visual displays through the
radio. The commands may
then be touched or spoken.
2. The audio system mutes and the
system plays a prompt followed
by a beep.
3. Wait until after the beep
completes, then clearly speak
one of the commands described
in this section.
79
Prompts and Screen Displays
Press g to interrupt any voice
recognition. This will terminate
the prompt. The beep is heard
immediately, and a command
can be stated without having
to wait.
There are two voice prompt modes
supported:
.
.
Long verbal prompts: The longer
prompts provide more
information regarding the
supported actions for that voice
recognition session.
Short prompts: The short
prompts provide simple setup
and action commands.
If a command is not heard during a
short period of time, the voice
recognition process times out.
The system prompts and display
screens will adjust to reflect the
commands during the voice
recognition session.
While voice is active, there may be
corresponding buttons and screen
displays available to interact with
the system so that some of the
functions can be manually done.
Pressing any of the buttons or
displays to finish a function that was
initiated through voice recognition
will terminate the session. If the
manual functions are only partially
completed, the voice recognition will
proceed until finished.

display the screen prior to when
voice recognition was initiated.
Press the z or the circled arrow

respectively during the voice

Press or say “Cancel” or “Exit” to
terminate or go back to the

Helpful Hints for Speaking
Commands
The voice recognition application
can usually understand direct
commands of the application
and task.
An example of a direct command
would be, “Phone.” The system may
answer with a prompt of, “Say Call
followed by the number or contact
name.” The direct command for this
task would be, “Call 555-1212.”
If the phone number has been
saved as a name or place, the direct
command would be, “Call David’s
office number.”
Directed Dialog
A directed dialog is an interaction
between a person speaking the
command and the system prompting
for specific information necessary to
complete the task. Many times the
system may repeat what the person
has stated as a command. This is
done as a confirmation to make
sure the command is understood.
