Radio Reception
Unplug electronic devices from the
accessory power outlets if there is
interference or static in the radio.
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 also
Buick Regal Infotainment System (GMNA-Localizing-U.S./Canada/Mexico6081499) - 2014 - CRC - 11/18/13

occur when things like storms and
power lines interfere with radio
reception. When this happens, try
reducing the treble on the radio.
Cell Phone Usage
Cell phone usage, such as making
or receiving phone calls, charging,
or just having the phone on may
cause static interference in the
radio. Unplug the phone or turn it off
if this happens.
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.
If attaching a cell phone antenna
to the glass, attach it between the
grid lines.
{ Caution
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.
{ Caution
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.
15
Multi-Band Antenna
The roof antenna is for OnStar®,
SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and
GPS (Global Positioning System).
Keep clear of obstructions for clear
reception. 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 signal for a period of time. If the
vehicle has a sunroof, and it is
open, reception can also be
affected.

Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation within the
navigation, audio, phone, and
weather applications. This feature
can be started by pressing either
the g button on the steering wheel
or the g on the touchscreen display.
However, not all features within
these areas are supported by voice
commands. Generally, only complex
tasks that require multiple manual
interactions to complete are
supported by voice commands.
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.
In general there are flexible ways to
speak commands for completing the
tasks. Most of them, except
destination entry and 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 to be performed, like
“Navigation Destination Entry.” The
system replies with prompts that
lead you through a dialog to enter
the necessary information. For
example, if a destination for route
guidance is needed, say
“Navigation” or “Destination Entry.”
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.
Using Voice Recognition
Voice recognition becomes available
once the system has been
initialized. This begins when the
ignition is turned on. Initialization
may take a few moments.

control to activate voice
recognition, or press g on the
infotainment touchscreen on the

.
If voice recognition is
started from the steering
wheel control, the

If voice recognition is
started from the
infotainment touchscreen
on the center stack, the
selections and visual dialog
content are displayed on
both the center stack
display and the instrument
cluster display.
2. The audio system mutes and the
system plays a prompt followed
by a beep.

Helpful Hints for Speaking
Commands
Voice recognition can understand
commands that are either naturally
stated in sentence form or direct
commands that state the application
and the task. Most languages do not
support natural language
commands in sentence form.
For those languages, use direct
commands like the examples shown
on the display.

Infotainment System
For best results:
.
.
Listen for the prompt and wait
for the beep before saying a
command or reply.
.
Say “Help” or look at the screen
display for example commands.
.
Voice recognition system prompt
can be interrupted while it is
playing by pressing g again.
For example, if the prompt
seems to be taking too long to
finish, to speak the command
without waiting for the prompt to
complete, press g again and
wait for the beep.
.
Black plate (62,1)
Speak the command naturally,
not too fast, not too slow. Use
direct commands without a lot of
extra words.
Usually Phone and Audio
commands can be spoken in a
single command.
For example, “Call Dave Smith
at work,” “Play” followed by the
artist or song name, or “Tune to”
followed by the radio station
number.
.
Navigation destinations are too
complex for a single command.
First, state a command that
explains the type of destination
needed, such as I want
directions to an “Address,”
“Navigate to an intersection,”
“I need to find a Place of Interest
or POI,” or “Directions to a
Contact.” The system responds
with requesting more details.
After saying “Place of Interest,”
only major chains are available
by name. Chains are businesses
with at least 20 locations. For
other POIs, say the name of a
category like “Restaurants,”
“Shopping Malls,” or “Hospitals.”
Most languages do not support
natural language commands in
sentence form. For those
languages, use direct commands
like the examples shown on
the display.
Direct commands might be more
clearly understood by the system.
An example of a direct command
would be “Call 248–555-1212.”
Examples of these direct commands
are displayed on most of the
screens while a voice session is
active. If “Phone” or “Phone
Commands,” is stated, the system
understands that a phone call is
requested and will respond with
questions until enough details are
gathered.
If the phone number has been
saved with a name and a place, the
direct command should include
both, for example “Call Dave Smith
at work.”

Using Voice Recognition for
List Options
When a list is displayed, a voice
prompt will ask to confirm or select
an option from that list. A selection
can be made by manually selecting
the item, or by speaking the line
number for the item to select.
When a screen contains a list, there
may be options that are available
but not displayed. The list on a
voice recognition screen functions
the same as a list on other screens.
Scrolling or flinging can be used to
help display other entries from
the list.
Manually scrolling or paging the
list on a screen during a voice
recognition session suspends the
current voice recognition event and
plays the prompt “Make your
selection from the list using the
manual controls, press q BACK on
the faceplate, or press the Back
screen button to try again.”
If manual selection takes more than
15 seconds, the session terminates
and prompts that it has timed out.
The screen returns back to the
screen where voice recognition
was initiated.
The Back Command
Say “Back” or press q BACK on the
faceplate, or press the Back screen
button to go to the previous screen.
If in voice recognition, and “Back” is
stated all the way through to the
initial screen, then “Back” is stated
one more time, the voice recognition
session will cancel.
Help
Say “Help” on any voice recognition
screen and the help prompt for the
screen is played. Additionally, a
pop-up displays a text version of the
help prompt. Depending on how
voice recognition was initiated, the
Help pop-up will either display on
the instrument cluster or the
63
infotainment touchscreen. Press the
Dismiss button to make the pop-up
go away.
Pressing g while the help prompt is
playing will terminate the prompt
and a beep will be heard. Doing this
will stop the help prompt so that a
voice command can be used.
Voice Recognition for the
Radio
Some audio screens have a voice
recognition button (g) to launch
audio voice recognition. If the voice
button is pressed in a radio screen,
the voice commands for radio and
media features are available.
“Switch to AM”: Switch bands to
AM and tune to the last AM radio
station.
“Switch to FM”: Switch bands to

Handling Large Amounts of Media
Content
It is expected that large amounts of
media content will be brought into
the vehicle. It may be necessary to
handle large amounts of media
content in a different way than
smaller amounts of media. The
system may limit the options of
voice recognition by not allowing
selection of song titles by voice at
the highest level if the number of
songs exceeds the maximum limit.
There are no restrictions if the
number of song files and albums is
less than 4,000. When the number
of song files connected to the
system is between 4,000 and 8,000,
the content cannot be accessed
directly with one command like
“Play <song name>.”
The restriction is that the command
“Play Song” must be spoken first;
the system will then ask for the song
name. The reply command would be
to say the name of the song to play.
Similar limits exist for album
content. If there are more than
4,000 albums, but less than 8,000,
the content cannot be accessed

directly with one command like,
“Play <album name>.” The
command “Play Album” must first be
spoken; the system will then ask for
the album name. The reply would
be to say the name of the album
to play.
Once the number of songs has
exceeded approximately 8,000,
there is no support for accessing
the songs directly through voice
commands. There will still be
access to the media content by
using commands for playlists,
artists, and genres.
The access commands for playlists,
artists, and genres are prohibited
after the number of this type of
media exceeds 4,000.
The system will provide feedback
the first time voice recognition is
initiated if it has become apparent
that any of these limits are reached
during a device initializing process.
