Global Positioning System (GPS)
The navigation system determines the position of your
vehicle by using satellite signals, various vehicle signals
and map data.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) locates the
current position of your vehicle using signals sent by the
United States Department of Defense GPS satellites.
While your vehicle is receiving signals from these
satellites, GPS will not appear on the map screen.
However, at times, other interferences such as
the satellite condition, road configuration, the condition
of the vehicle and/or other circumstances can interfere
with the system’s ability to determine the accurate
position of the vehicle. This is when GPS will appear on
the map screen.
The system may not be available or interferences may
occur if any of the following are true:
• Signals are obstructed by tall buildings, large trucks
or a tunnel.
• Metallic objects are located on the dashboard.
• Satellites are being repaired or improved.
• Aftermarket glass tinting has been applied to the
vehicle’s windshield.
Do not apply aftermarket glass tinting to the vehicle’s
windshield or place metallic objects on the vehicle’s
dashboard. Glass tinting and metallic objects will
interfere with the system’s ability to receive GPS signals
and may cause the system to malfunction.
If you are experiencing a problem, see Vehicle
Positioning on page 2-34 and Problems with Route
Guidance on page 2-34 for more information.

If the System Needs Service
If you are still experiencing difficulty with the
navigation system after reading this information,
see your GM dealer for assistance.
The map DVD in your vehicle is the most up-to-date
information available when your vehicle was purchased.
The map DVD is updated periodically, provided that

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
