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.
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.
6
• 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:
{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.
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.
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.
When getting started, you may set the navigation
system to your preference using various options.

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 accurate 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.
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 55 and Problems with Route Guidance on
page 55.

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 20. Dispose of the old disc to avoid
confusion about which disc is the most current.
56
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 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.
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 56.

Navigation Audio System
Notice: Before adding any sound equipment
to your vehicle, such as an audio system,
CD player, CB radio, mobile telephone,
or two-way radio, make sure that it can be
added by checking with your dealer. Also,
check federal rules covering mobile radio and
telephone units. If sound equipment can be
added, it is very important to do it properly.
Added sound equipment may interfere with the
operation of your vehicle’s engine, radio, or
other systems, and even damage them.
Your vehicle’s systems may interfere with the
operation of sound equipment that has
been added.
Notice: The chime signals related to seat
belts, parking brake, and other functions of
your vehicle operate through the navigation
system. If that equipment is replaced or
additional equipment is added to your vehicle,
the chimes may not work. Make sure that
replacement or additional equipment is
compatible with your vehicle before installing
it. See “Accessories and Modifications” in
the Index of your vehicle’s owner manual.

Radio Data Systems (RDS)
The audio system has a Radio Data System (RDS).
RDS features are available for use only on FM
stations that broadcast RDS info. With RDS, the
radio can do the following:
• Display station name
• Display messages from radio stations
• Display song title and artist name
This system relies on receiving specific information
from these stations and will only work when the
information is available. In rare cases, a radio
station may broadcast incorrect information that
will cause the radio features to work improperly. If
this happens, contact the radio station.
While the radio is tuned to an RDS station, the
station name will appear on the display with
the frequency.
Touch the Info screen button on the band menu to
receive information the selected radio station is
currently broadcasting.

CD Player
Remove the navigation map DVD from the slot
and return it to its case. Insert a CD partway into
the slot, label side up. The player will pull it in.
There will be a 12 to 15 second delay while the CD
is read, before it begins to play. When the
player begins to read a CD, the Disc Check in
Process message will appear briefly to remind you
of the delay. When the map DVD is reinserted
and read, the DVD Check in Process message will
appear briefly to remind you of the delay.
If the ignition or radio is turned off with a CD in
the player, it will stay in the player. When the
ignition or radio is turned on, the CD will start
playing where it stopped, if it was the last selected
audio source.
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 CD. If the surface
of the CD is damaged, such as cracked, broken,
or scratched, the CD will not play properly. If
the surface of the CD is soiled, see “Care of Your
CDs” in the Index of your vehicle’s owner
manual.
If there is no apparent damage, try a known
good CD.
Notice: If you add any label to a CD, insert
more than one CD into the slot at a time,
or attempt to play scratched or damaged CDs,
you could damage the CD player. When
using the CD player, use only CDs in good
condition without any label, load one CD at a
time, and keep the CD player and the loading
slot free of foreign materials, liquids, and
debris.
Do not add any label to a CD, it could get caught
in the CD player. If a CD is recorded on a
personal computer and a description label is
needed, try labeling the top of the recorded CD
with a soft marker instead.
