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. Before driving:
.
.
Black plate (4,1)
Become familiar with the
navigation system operation,
hard keys on the faceplate, and
touch-sensitive screen buttons of
the navigation system.
Set up the audio by presetting
favorite stations, setting the
tone, and adjusting the
speakers.
.
.
Set up the navigation features
before beginning to drive, such
as entering an address or a
preset destination.
For vehicles with phone
capability, set up phone numbers
in advance so they can be called
with the press of a single button
or a single voice command.
{ WARNING
Taking your eyes off the road too
long or too often while using the
navigation system could cause a
crash resulting in injury or death
to you or others. Focus your
attention on driving.
{ WARNING
Avoid looking too long or too
often at the moving map on the
navigation screen. This could
cause a crash and you or others
can be injured or killed. Use the
turn-by-turn voice guidance
directions whenever possible.
Buick LaCrosse Navigation System - 2011
Black plate (5,1)
Infotainment System
Use the navigation system to:
.
Plan a route by selecting a
destination using the various
methods and choices.
.
Follow turn-by-turn instructions
and map guidance with voice
prompts, when permitted by
traffic laws, controls, and
conditions.
.
Receive RDS broadcast
announcements.
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
5
changes, it could suggest using a
road that is now closed for
construction or a turn that is
prohibited by signs at the
intersection. Because the system
uses limited information, always
evaluate whether following the
system's directions is safe and legal
for the current conditions.
When the navigation system is
turned on, a screen might appear
with the information below. Read
and acknowledge the information it
contains.
If the Caution screen appears, touch
OK. If NAV or DEST are pressed,
this Caution screen appears and OK
must be pressed to access NAV and
DEST functions. See instructions
later in this section.
Set preferences or delete
information from the navigation
system using various options.

Ordering Map DVDs
The map data in the vehicle is

available when the vehicle was
produced. The map data is updated
periodically, provided that the map
information has changed.
For any 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. For any
updates or replacements, call
the GM Nav Disc Center or order a
new disc online. Have the Vehicle

available when ordering to ensure
the correct and most up-to-date
DVD map disc for the vehicle is
sent. See “Vehicle Identification

Voice Recognition
Using Voice Recognition
The navigation system's voice
recognition allows for hands free
operation of the navigation system
and the audio system features.
Voice recognition only works if the
map database is installed in the
system.
1. Press and release the g
steering wheel control button.
The audio system mutes, and a
beep is heard. A voice prompt
stating, “Please start speaking
after the beep” might be heard.
If the radio is off, the only
commands would be Hands Free
and Help.
Navigation voice commands are not
available until the I Agree button
has been selected.
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 index of the vehicle's
owner manual for more information.
If there is no beep, make sure
that the voice volume setting is
not turned down. See Configure
Menu on page 74 for more
information.
While voice recognition is active,
the system displays a g symbol.
2. Clearly speak one of the
commands listed later in this
section.
Canceling Voice Recognition
1. Press and release the $ i
steering wheel control button to
cancel a command, or if the
system response does not
match the verbal command.
85
2. The system replies, “Voice
recognition canceled”.
Pressing any other radio or
steering wheel control, other
than the volume knob or the
volume steering wheel control
button cancels the session.
3. Press and release the talk

button to restart the voice
recognition session.
Helpful Hints for Speaking
Commands
.
When a multiple command is
available, choose the command
that best works for you.
.
Words that are in brackets are
optional. For example, the
command “Radio [band] FM”,
saying “Radio FM” or “Radio
Band FM” are both valid
commands.

Infotainment System
Words that are separated by a
( / ) mean there is a choice of
using a word on either side of
the slash. For example, the
command (CD/DVD/Disc) [help],
you can say “CD [help]” or “DVD
[help]” or “Disc [help]”.
.
When the system recognizes the
command the system will either
perform the function or ask to
confirm the choice by clearly
saying “yes” or “no”.
.
When the system does not
recognize the command, the
system issues an error message
such as “pardon” or “command
not recognized”. The system
could also say, “voice
recognition canceled”.
If experiencing difficulty with the
system recognizing a command,
confirm that the command is
correct. Try saying the command
clearly or wait for a brief moment
after the beep.
.
Background noise such as a
climate control fan positioned on
high, open windows, and very
loud outside noises, even if the
windows are closed, can cause
voice commands to be
misunderstood
This system is able to recognize
commands in different
languages, such as English,
French (Canadian), and
Spanish. The system only
recognizes commands based on
the language selected.
To increase or decrease the
voice volume during a voice
recognition session, turn the
volume knob of the radio,
or press the volume steering
wheel control buttons. If the
volume is adjusted during a
voice recognition session, a
Voice Volume bar appears on
the screen showing the voice
volume level as it is being
adjusted. This also changes the
volume of the guidance prompts.
