Infotainment System
Overview
Read this manual thoroughly to
become familiar with how the
navigation system operates.
All functions are available when the
vehicle is parked. Do the following
before driving:
.
Become familiar with the
navigation system operation,
buttons on the faceplate, and
touch-sensitive screen buttons.
.
Set up the audio by presetting
favorite stations, setting the
tone, and adjusting the
speakers.
The navigation system includes
navigation and audio functions.
Keeping your eyes on the road and
your mind on the drive is important
for safe driving. The navigation
system has built-in features
intended to help with this by
disabling some features when
driving. A grayed-out function is
not available when the vehicle
is moving.
.
Set up the navigation features,
such as entering an address.
.
Set up phone numbers in
advance so they can be called
easily by pressing a single
button or a single voice
command for navigation systems
equipped with phone capability.
{ WARNING
Taking your eyes off the road too
long or too often while using the
navigation system could cause a
crash and you or others could be
injured or killed. Focus your
attention on driving and limit
glances at the moving map on the
navigation screen. Use voice
guidance whenever possible.
Buick Regal Navigation System - 2012
Black plate (5,1)
Infotainment System
Use the navigation system to:
.
Plan a route.
.
Select a destination using
various methods and choices.
.
Follow turn-by-turn route and
map guidance with voice
prompts, only if permitted by
traffic laws, controls, and
conditions.
.
Receive RDS broadcast
announcements.
5
Always be alert and obey traffic and
roadway laws and instructions,
regardless of the guidance from the
navigation system. Because the
navigation system uses street map
information that does not include all
traffic restrictions or the latest road
changes, it may suggest using a
road that is now closed for
construction or a turn that is
prohibited by signs at the
intersection. Always evaluate
whether following the system's
directions is safe and legal for the
current conditions.
After acknowledging the start up
information, the NAV (Navigation)
and DEST (Destination) functions
are accessible. Information can now
be entered or deleted, and other
functions accessed. See
instructions later in this section.
When the navigation system is
turned on, a screen may appear
with information that must be read
and acknowledged before accessing
some navigation features.
When getting started, set your
preferences or delete information
in the navigation system using
various options.
Every 50 times the vehicle is started
and the navigation system is turned
on, the Caution screen appears.
After reading the caution, select OK.
If OK is not selected, all control
buttons except for NAV (Navigation)
and DEST (Destination) can be
accessed.

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

When the vehicle is not receiving
signals from the satellites, a symbol
appears on the map screen. See
Navigation Symbols on page 38.
