Troubleshooting
XM Travel Link services use the
SiriusXM® Satellite Signal and GPS
Satellite Signal to provide this
feature.
When the vehicle is started, it can
take up to five minutes for the radio
to receive the Travel Link services.
Acquiring Signal: Radio is
downloading the activation
information or not receiving a
good signal. Move the vehicle to
open sky and restart the vehicle.
No XM Signal: Reception is
blocked. Move the vehicle into
open sky.
Radio Reception
Frequency interference and static
can occur during normal radio
reception if items such as cell phone
chargers, vehicle convenience
accessories, and external electronic
devices are plugged into the
accessory power outlet. If there is
interference or static, unplug the
item from the accessory power
outlet.
Buick Regal Infotainment System - 2013 - CRC - 10/29/12
Black plate (25,1)
Infotainment System
FM
FM signals only reach about 16 to
65 km (10 to 40 mi). Although the
radio has a built-in electronic circuit
that automatically works to reduce
interference, some static can occur,
especially around tall buildings or
hills, causing the sound to fade in
and out.
AM
The range for most AM stations is
greater than for FM, especially at
night. The longer range can cause
station frequencies to interfere with
each other. Static can occur when
things like storms and power lines
interfere with radio reception. When
this happens, try reducing the treble
on the radio.
SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
Service
SiriusXM Satellite Radio Service
gives digital radio reception from
coast to coast in the 48 contiguous
United States, and in Canada.
Just as with FM, tall buildings or
hills can interfere with satellite radio
signals, causing the sound to fade
in and out. In addition, traveling or
standing under heavy foliage,
bridges, garages, or tunnels may
cause loss of the SiriusXM signal for
a period of time.
Cellular Phone Usage
Cellular phone usage can cause
interference with the vehicle's radio.
Backglass Antenna
The AM-FM antenna is integrated
with the rear window defogger in the
rear window. Do not scratch the
inside surface or damage the lines
in the glass. If the inside surface is
damaged, it could interfere with
radio reception. For proper radio
reception, the antenna connector
needs to be properly attached to the
post on the glass.
25
If attaching a cell phone antenna to
the glass, attach it between the grid
lines.
Notice: Using a razor blade or
sharp object to clear the inside
rear window can damage the rear
window antenna and/or the rear
window defogger. Repairs would
not be covered by the vehicle
warranty. Do not clear the inside
rear window with sharp objects.
Notice: Do not apply aftermarket
glass tinting with metallic film.
The metallic film in some tinting
materials will interfere with or
distort the incoming radio
reception. Any damage caused to
the backglass antenna due to
metallic tinting materials will
not be covered by the vehicle
warranty.

Voice Recognition: Gracenote
improves music search and
navigation by identifying bands,
artists, and albums names that may
be hard to pronounce, irregular
spellings, and nicknames. For
example, Gracenote helps the
system understand artist names like
“INXS” or “Mötley Crüe.” It also
allows the use of names like: “The
Boss,” “G.N.R,” “The Fab Four,” and
thousands of other famous artist
nicknames as voice commands to
access music. See Voice
Recognition on page 72.
The USB port will support the
following media formats:
.

Gracenote technology embedded
into the radio helps manage and

screen. If information is missing,
Gracenote will fill it in.
If the CD is not playing correctly, try
a known good CD.

rock genres in the media library;
normalization will group all those
into one rock Genre. Normalization
default is off.
Cover Art: The Gracenote
embedded database contains cover
art or album art information for the
music on the USB device. If the
music is recognized by Gracenote
and does have cover art, Gracenote
will use the cover art found in the

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
the 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.
.
Satellites are being repaired or
improved.
For more information if the GPS is
not functioning properly, see
Problems with Route Guidance on
page 71 and If the System Needs
Service on page 72.

reasons:
.
The road system has changed.
.
The vehicle is driving on slippery
road surfaces such as sand,
gravel, or snow.
.
The vehicle is traveling on
winding roads or long straight

.
The turn was not made on the
road indicated.
.
Route guidance might not be
available when using automatic
rerouting for the next right or
left turn.
.
The GPS signal is not received.
.
A roof carrier is installed on the
vehicle.
.
Tire chains have been installed.
.
The tires are replaced or worn.
.
.
The tire pressure for the tires is
incorrect.
The route might not be changed
when using automatic rerouting.
.
.
This is the first navigation use
after the map data is updated.
There is no route guidance when
turning at an intersection.
.
.
The 12-volt battery is
disconnected for several days.
Plural names of places might be
announced occasionally.
.
.
The vehicle is driving in heavy
traffic where driving is at low
speeds, and the vehicle is
stopped and started repeatedly.
It could take a long time to
operate automatic rerouting

If the System Needs
Service
If the navigation system needs
service and the steps listed here
have been followed but there are
still problems, see your dealer for
assistance.
Map Data Updates
The map data in the vehicle is
the most up-to-date information
available when the vehicle was
produced. The map data is updated
periodically, provided that the map
information has changed.
For questions about the operation of
the navigation system or the update
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 or order a new Map Update
online. To order map data, have the
vehicle’s Vehicle Identification
Number (VIN) available. See
“Vehicle Identification Number
(VIN)” in the owner manual.
After receiving the updated map
data, see Maps on page 51.
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 72.
Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation of the
