Getting Started
Before you begin to operate the navigation system,
read this manual thoroughly to become familiar with it
and to understand how the system works.
DVD Map Disc noise, when entering the vehicle and
turning the vehicle off, is normal system operation.
1-4
Keeping your mind on the drive is important for safe
driving. See “Defensive Driving” in the Index of
your vehicle’s owner manual for more information.
Get familiar with your vehicle’s navigation system so
you can use it with less effort and take full advantage
of its features. Your navigation system includes not
only navigation, but also audio functions. While
your vehicle is parked:
• Familiarize yourself with all of its controls: hard
keys on the faceplate and touch-sensitive screen
buttons.
• Familiarize yourself with its operation.
• Set up your audio by presetting your favorite stations,
setting the tone, and adjusting the speakers. Then,
when driving conditions permit, you can tune to your
favorite stations using the presets and steering wheel
controls, if the vehicle has them.
• Set up the navigation features that can only be
done before you begin driving, such as entering an
address or a preset destination.
Entering a destination or alphanumeric text requires
many steps, so you can only perform these operations
when the vehicle is in PARK (P). You will notice
that touch-sensitive screen buttons leading to the
alphanumeric keyboard are dimmed out while driving.
Other functions may also be locked out while driving
and they too will appear grayed out on the screen — but
all functions are available when parked. Some functions
can be performed while driving, as long as you can
do so without diverting too much of your attention from
your driving.
{CAUTION:
This system provides you with a far greater
access to audio stations and song listings.
Giving extended attention to entertainment
tasks while driving can cause a crash and you
or others can be injured or killed. Always keep
your eyes on the road and your mind on the
drive — avoid engaging in extended searching
while driving.
{CAUTION:
Looking at the moving map on the navigation
screen frequently or for too long while driving
can cause a crash and you or others can be
injured or killed. Keep your eyes and mind on
the road and avoid looking too long or too often
at the moving map on the navigation screen.
Use the voice guidance directions whenever
possible.
The navigation system allows you to:
• Plan a route with provided turn-by-turn route and
map guidance with voice prompts.
• Select a destination using various methods and
choices.
• Receive RDS broadcast announcements.
The information in the system may not always be
complete. Road conditions such as prohibited turns,
detours, and construction zones, change frequently.
It is important to consider whether you can follow the
directions given by the system for the current conditions.

The rear vision camera system is designed to help
the driver when backing up by displaying a view,
on the navigation screen, of the area behind the vehicle
when the driver shifts the vehicle into REVERSE (R).
Once the driver shifts out of REVERSE (R), the
navigation screen will go back to the last screen that
had been displayed, after a delay.

• Shifting in to PARK (P).
• Reach a vehicle speed of 5 mph (8 km/h).
There is a message on the rear vision camera screen

{CAUTION:
The Rear Vision Camera (RVC) system does
not replace driver vision. RVC does not:
• Detect objects that are outside the
•
camera’s field of view, below the bumper,
or underneath the vehicle.
Detect children, pedestrians, bicyclists,
or pets.
CAUTION:
(Continued)
So if you do not use proper care before
backing up, you could hit a vehicle, child,
pedestrian, bicyclist, or pet, resulting in
vehicle damage, injury, or death. Even though
the vehicle has the RVC system, always
check carefully before backing up by checking
behind your vehicle.
Do not back the vehicle by only looking
at the rear vision camera screen, or use the
screen during longer, higher speed backing
maneuvers or where there could be
cross-traffic. Your judged distances using
the screen will differ from actual distances.
CAUTION:

The navigation system determines the position of your
vehicle by using satellite signals, various vehicle signals,
and map data.
At times, other interferences such as the satellite
condition, road configuration, the condition of the
vehicle and/or other circumstances can interfere with
the navigation system’s ability to determine the accurate
position of the vehicle.
The GPS shows the current position of your vehicle using
signals sent by the GPS Satellites of the United States
Department of Defense. When your vehicle is not
receiving signals from the satellites, a symbol will appear
on the map screen. Refer to Symbols on page 2-7.
This system may not be available or interferences may
occur if any of the following are true:
• Signals are obstructed by tall buildings, trees,
large trucks, or a tunnel.
• Objects are located on the rear shelf.
• Satellites are being repaired or improved.
• After-market glass tinting has been applied to
the vehicle’s rear windshield.
Notice: Do not apply after-market glass tinting to
the vehicle’s windows. Glass tinting will interfere
with the system’s ability to receive GPS signals and
cause the system to malfunction. You might have
to replace the window to correct the problem.
This would not be covered by your warranty.
For more information if you are experiencing a problem,
see If the System Needs Service on page 2-40 and
Problems with Route Guidance on page 2-40.

If the System Needs Service
If your system needs service and you have followed the
steps listed here and still are experiencing problems,
see your dealer/retailer for assistance.
Ordering Map DVDs
The map DVD in your vehicle is the most up-to-date
information available when your vehicle was produced.
The map DVD is updated periodically, provided that
the map information has changed. You will receive
two free DVD map disc updates with the purchase of
your new vehicle. Updates are necessary to make sure
that your vehicle’s navigation system has the most
accurate information available about streets/roads,
points of interest, and business locations.
The updates are provided by the GM Nav Disc Center at
the first and second anniversary dates of your vehicle’s
delivery date. About four to six weeks before those
anniversary dates, you will receive a post card from the
GM Nav Disc Center reminding you that a free update is
available. The center will request confirmation of your
mailing address either by having you contact the toll-free
number, 1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472), or the
center’s website, www.gmnavdisc.com. After verifying
your address you should receive the updated disc in
about two weeks. After receiving the updated disc,
replace the old disc in the navigation system. See
“Installing the DVD Map Disc” and “Ejecting the DVD Map
Disc” under Maps on page 2-4. Dispose of the old disc to
avoid confusion about which disc is the most current.
If you have any questions about the operation of the
navigation system or the update process, call the
GM Nav Disc Center or go to the center’s website.
If you need any future updates or a replacement disc,
because the current disc is lost, damaged, or needs
to be updated, call the GM Nav Disc Center or order
a new disc online. To order a disc, have your Vehicle
Identification Number (VIN) available. This helps
the center make sure you receive the correct and
most up to date DVD map disc for your vehicle.
See “Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)” in the Index
of your vehicle’s owner manual for more information.
Database Coverage Explanations
Coverage areas vary with respect to the level of map
detail available for any given area. Some areas will
feature greater levels of detail than others. If this
happens, it does not mean there is a problem with
the system. As the map DVD is updated, more detail
may become available for areas which previously
had limited detail. See Ordering Map DVDs
on page 2-41.

not met when recording a burned disc, the disc may
not play. The guidelines are:
• ID3 tag information is displayed by the radio if it is
available. The radio supports ID3 tag information
v1.0, v1.1, and v2.0. The radio will display a
filename, song name, artist name, album name,
and directory name.
• Maximum 32 characters, including spaces, in a file
or folder name.
• The recommended maximum number of folders is
100 with a maximum hierarchy of three folders.
• Create a folder structure that makes it easy to find
songs while driving. Organize songs by albums
using one folder for each album.
• All playlist files (.m3u or .pls) must be removed
• It is recommended that there is a maximum of
200 files on a DVD+R(W) disc.
• The files can be recorded on a CD-R(W) or
DVD+R(W)
• Copy protected WMA files are not supported.

from disc contents. Playlists are not supported.
• It is recommended that there is a maximum of
192 files on a CD-R(W) disc.
3-13
Root Directory
Order of Play
The root directory will be treated as a folder. If the root
directory has compressed audio files, the directory
will be displayed as ROOT. All files contained directly
under the root directory will be accessed prior to
any root directory folders.
Tracks will be played in the following order:
• The radio will not support playlist files.
• Order of play differs depending if the compressed
audio disc is fully scanned or unscanned. See
“Scanning Compressed Audio Disc” previously in
this section.
• When playing an unscanned disc, the next and
previous screen buttons may be required to switch
away from the current folder when quickly seeking
rather than allowing the last song of a folder to play
to completion.
• Play will begin from the first track under the root
directory. When all tracks from the root directory
have been played, play will continue from files
according to their numerical listing. After playing the
last track from the last folder, play will begin again
at the first track of the first folder or root directory.
• A scanned compressed audio disc in artist/album
modes will only play songs within the current
category. The next and previous screen buttons
will change to different artists or albums.
Empty Directory or Folder
If a root directory or a folder exists somewhere in the
file structure that contains only folders/subfolders and no
compressed files directly beneath them, the player will
advance to the next folder in the file structure that
contains compressed audio files and the empty folder
will not be displayed or numbered.
No Folder
When the disc contains only compressed files, the files
will be located under the root folder. The next and
previous folder functions will have no function on a disc
that was recorded without folders. When displaying
the name of the folder the radio will display ROOT.
When play enters a new folder, the display will not
automatically show the new folder name. The new
track name will appear on the display.

File System and Naming
The song name that will display will be the song name
that is contained in the ID3 tag. If the song name is
not present in the ID3 tag, then the radio will display
the file name without the extension (such as .mp3)
as the track name.
Track names longer than 32 characters or four pages
will be shortened. The display will not show parts
of words on the last page of text and the extension
of the filename will not display.

The DVD player is only compatible with DVDs of the
appropriate region code that is printed on the jacket
of most DVDs.
The DVD slot is compatible with most audio CDs, CD-R,
CD-RW, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD+R/RW single
layer media along with MP3 and WMA formats. DVD-R,
DVD-RW, and DVD+R dual layer media is not supported.

If playing any compatible DVD+R(W) the sound quality
may be reduced due to disc quality, the method of
recording, the quality of the video that has been recorded,
and the way the disc has been handled. There may be an
increase in skipping, difficulty in finding chapters, and/or
difficulty in loading and ejecting. If these problems occur,
check the bottom surface of the DVD. If the surface of the
DVD is damaged, such as cracked, broken, or scratched,
the DVD will not play properly.
If there is no apparent damage, try a known good DVD.
Notice: If you add any label to a DVD, insert
more than one DVD into the slot at a time, or attempt
to play scratched or damaged DVDs, you could
damage the DVD player. When using the DVD player,
use only DVDs in good condition without any
label, load one DVD at a time, and keep the DVD
player and the loading slot free of foreign materials,
liquids, and debris.
Do not add any label to a DVD, it could get caught in the
DVD player. If a DVD is recorded on a personal computer
and a description label is needed, try labeling the top of
the recorded DVD with a soft marker instead.

Fading With a Bose® Surround Sound
System (Acadia and Enclave Only)
Some DVD-Video discs only contain Dolby® Digital 5.1
(AC-3) or DTS 5.1 audio tracks and may not allow
conversions into stereo modes.
When using fade in 5.1 Surround mode, the left front
and right front speakers will fade rearward, leaving the
center front speaker unaffected until the last fade
step, then all front speakers will mute.
See “Adjusting the Speakers” under Navigation Audio
System on page 3-2 Navigation Audio System for
more information.
If the Rear Seat Audio (RSA) is turned on, the radio
disables fade and mutes the rear speakers.
When fading full rearward, you may want to select a
