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.
6
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 equipped).
• 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 do the
following:
• 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.
7
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.
If the Caution screen appears, touch OK to load
the map DVD information. If OK is not selected, all
hard keys except for NAV (Navigation) and
DEST (Destination) can be accessed. Once the
NAV or DEST hard keys are pressed, this Caution
screen will appear and OK must be pressed to
load the map DVD information from the map disc.
When getting started you may set the navigation
system to your preference using various options.
To do so, reference the following topics:
Language — English/Metric
To change the language of the navigation screens,
see “Driver Information Center, DIC Vehicle
Customization” in the Index of your vehicles
owner manual.
Each time the vehicle is started and the navigation
system is turned on, the Caution screen or the
previous active screen will appear dependent on
system power off time.
8

Global Positioning System (GPS)
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’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 21.
This system may not be available or interference
may occur if the following happens:
• Signal obstructions caused by tall buildings,
large trucks, tunnels,
• objects located on top of the instrument panel,
• satellites will not send signals if they are
being repaired or improved,
• after-market glass tinting has been applied to
the vehicle’s windows.
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 52 and Problems with Route Guidance on
page 52.

Ordering Map DVDs
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 18. 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

• Seek to stations broadcasting the selected
type of programming
• Receive announcements concerning local and
national emergencies
• Display messages from radio stations
XM™ is a satellite radio service that is based in
the 48 contiguous United States and Canada.
XM™ offers a large variety of coast-to-coast
channels including music, news, sports, talk,
traffic/weather (U.S. subscribers), and children’s
programming. XM™ provides digital quality
audio and text information that includes the
channel name and number, song title, and artist
name. A service fee is required in order to receive

folder or album should contain 18 songs
or less.
• It is recommended that there is a maximum of
192 files on a disc.
• The files can be recorded on a CD-R or
CD-RW with a maximum capacity of 700MB.
• DVD with MP3 are not playable on this
system.
There are guidelines that must be met, when
creating an MP3 disc. If the guidelines are not met
when recording a CD-R(W), the CD may not
play. The guidelines are:
• Sampling rate: 16 kHz, 22.05 kHz, 24 kHz,
32 kHz, and 44.1 kHz.
• Bit rates supported: 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96,
112, 128, 160, 192, 224, 256, and 320 kbps.
• ID3 tag information is displayed by the radio if
it is available. The radio supports ID3 tag
information v1.0 or v1.1. 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.
• Maximum number of folders is 253 with a
maximum hierarchy of eight folders.
Root Directory
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.
However, playlists (Px) will always be accessed
before root folders or files.
69
Empty Directory or Folder
Order of Play
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.
Tracks will be played in the following order:
• Play will begin from the first track in the
first playlist and will continue sequentially
through all tracks in each playlist. When the
last track of the last playlist has been
played, play will continue from the first track
of the first playlist.
• If the CD does not contain any playlists, then
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.
No Folder
When the CD 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 CD that was recorded without
folders or playlists. When displaying the name of
the folder the radio will display ROOT.
When the CD contains only playlists and
compressed audio files, but no folders, all files will
be located under the root folder. The left and
right arrow buttons will search playlists (Px) first
and then go to the root folder. When the radio
displays the name of the folder the radio will
display ROOT.
70
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
When you insert a CD, the CD tab will display.
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.
If you turn off the ignition or radio with a CD in the
player, it will stay in the player. When you turn
on the ignition or radio, the CD will start playing
where it stopped, if it was the last selected
audio source.
As each new track starts to play, the track number
will appear on the display.
The CD player can play the smaller 3 inch (8cm)
single CDs with an adapter ring. Full-size CDs
and the smaller CDs are loaded in the same
manner.
If playing a CD-R the sound quality may be reduced
due to CD-R quality, the method of recording, the
quality of the music that has been recorded, and the
way the CD-R has been handled. There may be an
increase in skipping, difficulty in finding tracks,
and/or difficulty in loading and ejecting. If these
problems occur, check the bottom surface of the
