Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual: 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 systemmaintains a minimum volume level.

Using Voice RecognitionPress 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.

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 RecognitionPress and release $ / i on the steering wheel control to cancel a command, if the system response does notmatch the voice command, or say “Goodbye” or “Cancel.”The system replies, “Goodbye.”Helpful Hints for Speaking CommandsWhen multiple commands are available, choose the command that works best for you.Words in parentheses are optional. For example, for the command “Tune FM (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 askto 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 thecommand is correct. Try saying the command clearly or wait for a brief moment afterthe tone.Background noise such as a climate control fan positioned on high, open windows, andvery loud outside noises, even if the windows are closed, can cause voice commandsto be misunderstood.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 languageselected.To increase or decrease the voice volume during a voice recognition session, turnthe volume knob of the radio, or press the volume steering wheel control. If the volumeis adjusted during a voice recognition session, a Volume bar appears on the screenshowing the voice volume level as it is being adjusted. This also changes the volumeof 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 addressor routing to different location than intended.When providing the house number portion of the address, the system recognizes bothdigit format and numerical text. An example would be to say, “3-0-0-0-1” or “ThirtyThousand One.”If the system provides destination in another country on several attempts, say the“Change Country” command and say the country of interest.Voice Recognition Help
