Any route suggestions made by this navigation system
may never override local traffic regulations, your
own judgement, and/or knowledge of safe driving
practices.
Disregard route suggestions made by the navigation
system if such suggestions would; cause you to perform
a hazardous or illegal maneuver, place you in a
hazardous situation, or route you into an area you
consider unsafe.
DVD Map Disc noise, when entering the vehicle and
turning the vehicle off, is normal system operation.
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.
1-5
{CAUTION:
The system uses limited information, you must always
evaluate whether following the system’s directions
is safe and legal for the current conditions.
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.
You should always be alert and obey traffic and roadway
laws and instructions, regardless of the guidance from
the navigation system. 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.
1-6
Each time the vehicle is started and the navigation
system is turned on, the Caution screen may appear or
the previous active screen will appear dependent on

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.

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 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 2-8.
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 2-41 and
Problems with Route Guidance on page 2-41.

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.
If you have 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. If you need any
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.
2-42
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.
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 2-42.

when recording a CD-R(W), the CD may not play.
• 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.
• Create a folder structure that makes it easy to find
songs while driving. Organize songs by albums using
one folder for each album. Each folder or album
should contain 18 songs or less.
3-14
• 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.
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.
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
File System and Naming
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.
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.
Order of Play
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.
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.
Preprogrammed Playlists
You can access preprogrammed playlists which were
created by WinAmp™, MusicMatch™, or Real
Jukebox™ software, however, you will not have editing
capability. These playlists will be treated as special
folders containing compressed audio song files.
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.

DVD Player
If Disc Read Error appears on the display and/or the CD
comes out, it could be for one of the following reasons:
The player can be used for CD, MP3, DVD audio, and
as a DVD video player.
• If a disc was inserted with an invalid or unknown
format.
• If the map DVD disc was installed into the CD slot.
See “Installing the Map DVD” under Maps on
page 2-4 for more information.
• It is very hot. When the temperature returns to
normal, the CD should play.
• You are driving on a very rough road. When the
road becomes smoother, the CD should play.
• The CD is dirty, scratched, wet, or upside down.
• The air is very humid. If so, wait about an hour and
try again.
• There may have been a problem while burning
the CD.
• The label may be caught in the CD player.
If the CD is not playing correctly, for any other reason,
try a known good CD.
If any error occurs repeatedly or if an error cannot be
corrected, contact your dealer/retailer.
3-18
With the ignition on, insert a DVD partway into the slot,
label side up. The player will pull it in and the DVD
should begin playing. While playing a DVD, the
navigation system is available. If you insert a DVD with
the system off and the ignition on, it will start to play.
This feature will not operate unless the vehicle is
in PARK (P).
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,
DVD+R/RW media along with MP3 and un-protected
WMA formats.
If playing any compatible DVD 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.
Playing a DVD
There are three ways to play a DVD:
• Once a DVD is inserted, the system will
If there is no apparent damage, try a known good DVD.
automatically start play of the 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.
• If you are on a map screen, touch the
DVD screen button.
• Press the AUDIO hard key, then touch
the DVD screen button.
O(Power/Volume): Press this knob to turn the
system on and off. Turn the knob to increase or
decrease the volume of the audio system.
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.
If an error appears on the display, see “DVD
Messages” later in this section.

Voice Recognition ............................................4-2
4-1
Voice Recognition
The navigation system’s voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation of the navigation system,
audio system, and OnStar® features. The DVD map
disc must be installed in the navigation system for voice
recognition to work. See “Installing the DVD Map Disc”
under Maps on page 2-4. 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 your vehicle’s owner
manual and for more information.
To use voice recognition, do the following:
1. Push and hold the g (talk) steering wheel control
until you hear a beep. The audio system, if on,
will mute.
2. Clearly state one of the commands listed on the
following pages.
Helpful Hints for Stating Commands
• When a multiple command is available, choose the
command that best works for you.
• Words that are in brackets are optional. For example,
for the command Radio [band] [select] FM, stating
Radio FM or Radio select FM are both valid
commands.
• When the system recognizes the command the
system will:
− either perform the function
− ask you to confirm your choice by clearly
stating “yes or no”
− issue an error message such as “System does
not recognize this command” or direct you to
“Please start speaking after the beep”
• If the system is not yet ready, the system may state
“System is checking the disc. Please wait.”.
• To cancel a command or if the system response
does not match your verbal command, press and
hold the talk symbol button. The system will reply,
“System will cancel the voice recognition”.
4-2
• If you experience difficulty with the system
recognizing a command, try saying it more softly, and
wait for a few seconds after the beep, or you may just
try saying it again.
• Background noise may cause voice commands to be
misunderstood, including airflow noise from wind.
• To use the voice recognition system, the map DVD
must be loaded.
This system is able to recognize commands in three
different languages. The system will only recognize
commands based on the language selected from the
Driver Information Center (DIC). See “Driver Information
Center, DIC Vehicle Personalization” in the Index of
your vehicles owner manual.
Voice Recognition Commands
The following list shows all of the voice commands
available for the navigation system with a brief
description of each. The commands are listed with the
optional words in brackets. To use the voice commands,
refer to the instructions listed previously.
Voice Tag Commands
The following are voice tag commands you can access
by clearly stating the commands exactly as they are
written. You may have up to 40 voice tag entries for
destinations.
Navigation go to [destination] (voice tag), navigation
select [destination] (voice tag): These commands
instruct the system to select a destination saved under
the voice tag you have stored.
When a destination is requested using a voice tag, the
system will state, “Press or say cancel if not correct”.
To cancel this voice tag destination, using voice
recognition, push and hold the g (talk) steering wheel
control until you hear a beep, then say “cancel”.
If you are not currently driving on a route, the system
will automatically create the voice tag destination as the
final destination. If you are currently driving on a
route, the system will automatically create the voice tag
destination as a waypoint. Up to three waypoints can
be created.
