Read the following pages to become familiar with the features.

⚠ Warning

Taking your eyes off the road for too long or too often while using any infotainment feature can cause a crash. You or others could be injured or killed. Do not give extended attention to infotainment tasks while driving. Limit your glances at the vehicle displays and focus your attention on driving. Use voice commands
whenever possible.

The infotainment system has built-in features intended to help avoid distraction by disabling some functions when driving. These functions may gray out when they are unavailable. Many infotainment features are also available through the instrument cluster and steering wheel controls.

Before driving:

  • Become familiar with the operation, center stack controls, and infotainment display controls.
  • Set up the audio by presetting favorite stations, setting the tone, and adjusting the speakers.
  • Set up phone numbers in advance so they can be called easily by pressing a single control or by using a single voice command if equipped with Bluetooth phone capability.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) If equipped, ANC reduces engine noise in the vehicle’s interior. ANC
requires the factory-installed audio system, radio, speakers, amplifier (if equipped), induction system, and exhaust system to work properly. Deactivation is required by your dealer if related aftermarket equipment is installed.

Theft-Deterrent Feature

The infotainment system has an electronic security system installed to prevent theft. The infotainment system only works in the vehicle in which it was first installed, and cannot be used in another vehicle.
