Radio Reception
Frequency interference and static
can occur during normal radio
reception if items such as cell phone
chargers, vehicle convenience
accessories, and external electronic
devices are plugged into the
accessory power outlet. If there is
interference or static, unplug the
item from the accessory power
outlet.
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 occur when
things like storms and power lines
interfere with radio reception. When
this happens, try reducing the treble
on the radio.

Global Positioning
System (GPS)
The position of the vehicle is
determined by using satellite
signals, various vehicle signals, and
map data.
At times, other interference such as
the satellite condition, road
configuration, condition of the
vehicle, and/or other circumstances
can affect the navigation system's
ability to determine the accurate
position of the vehicle.

Problems with Route
Guidance
Inappropriate route guidance can
occur under one or more of the
following conditions:
.
The turn was not made on the
road indicated.
.
Route guidance might not be
available when using automatic
rerouting for the next right or
left turn.
.
The route might not be changed
when using automatic rerouting.
.
There is no route guidance when
turning at an intersection.
.
Plural names of places might be
announced occasionally.
.
It could take a long time to
operate automatic rerouting
during high-speed driving.
.
Automatic rerouting might
display a route returning to the
set waypoint if heading for a
destination without passing
through a set waypoint.
.
The route prohibits the entry of a
vehicle due to a regulation by
time or season or any other
regulation which may be given.
.
Some routes might not be
searched.
.
The route to the destination
might not be shown if there are
new roads, if roads have
recently changed, or if certain
roads are not listed in the map
data. See Maps on page 46.
To recalibrate the vehicle's position
on the map, park with the vehicle
running for two to five minutes, until
the vehicle position updates. Make
sure the vehicle is parked in a
location that is safe and has a clear
view of the sky and away from large
obstructions.
If the System Needs
Service
If the navigation system needs
service and the steps listed here
have been followed but there are
still problems, see Problems with
Route Guidance on page 70.
Map Data Updates
The map data in the vehicle is the
most up-to-date information
available when the vehicle was
produced. The map data is updated
periodically, provided that the map
information has changed.
For 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 updates are
needed, call the GM Nav Disc
Center or order a new Map Update
online. To order map data, have the

“Vehicle Identification Number

After receiving the updated map
data, see Maps on page 46.
Database Coverage
Explanations
Coverage areas vary with respect to
the level of map detail available for
any given area. Some areas feature
greater levels of detail than others.
If this happens, it does not mean
there is a problem with the system.
As the map data is updated, more
detail can become available for
areas that previously had limited
detail. See Map Data Updates on
page 70.
Voice Recognition
Voice recognition allows for
hands-free operation of the
infotainment system features.
Voice recognition can be used when
the radio is on or when Retained
Accessory Power (RAP) is active.
See “Retained Accessory Power
(RAP)” in the owner manual. The
system maintains a minimum
volume level.
Using Voice Recognition
1. Press b / g on the steering
wheel. The audio system mutes.
A voice prompt states, “Please
say a command.” Wait until the
tone is heard before speaking.
If there is no tone, make sure
that the volume is turned up.
While voice recognition is active,
the system displays a g symbol
in the top right of the screen.
71
2. Clearly speak one of the
commands listed later in this
section.
Press b / g twice on the steering
wheel to skip the voice prompt
messages.
Canceling Voice Recognition
1. Press and release $ / i on
the steering wheel control to
cancel a command, if the system
response does not match the
voice command, or say
“Goodbye” or “Cancel.”
2. The system replies, “Goodbye.”
Helpful Hints for Speaking
Commands
.
When multiple commands are
available, choose the command
that works best for you.
.
Words in parentheses are
optional. For example, for the
command “Tune FM
Buick Encore IntelliLink Infotainment System (GMNA-Localizing-U.S./Canada-7639742) - 2015 - crc - 7/14/14
72
Infotainment System
(frequency),” saying “Tune FM
87.7” or “Tune FM” are both
valid commands.
.
When the command is
recognized, the system will
either perform the function or
ask to confirm the choice.
.
When the system does not
recognize the command, the
system says “pardon.”
.
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 tone.
.
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.
.
Black plate (72,1)
The system is able to recognize
commands in different
languages, such as English,
Canadian French, 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. If the volume is
adjusted during a voice
recognition session, a 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.
When using navigation
commands, take the time to
become familiar with the
address. Long delays when
giving the address can result in
the system not recognizing the
address or routing to different
location than intended.
.
When providing the house
number portion of the address,
the system recognizes both digit
format and numerical text. An
example would be to say,
“3-0-0-0-1” or “Thirty
Thousand One.”
.
If the system provides
destination in another country on
several attempts, say the
“Change Country” command and
say the country of interest. The
country default is the United
States. To enter a destination in
Canada or Mexico, the country
will first have to be changed in
the system.
Voice Recognition Help
To enter the help playback session,
clearly speak one of the help
commands.
Help: The system plays back more
specific help commands such as
