If you have on star. Hold button down, when it prompts you, say: dial 5165551212. It will repeat the number and display it on the dash... Your owners manual should have a list of all the commands...

I believe there are two different systems at work with commands.....On Star commands, and internal voice commands. If you are referring to the internal voice commands, I think you need to press and hold the "SRCE" button until you hear a beep, then you can use other commands such as Navigation, Radio, etc. I made a little "Cheat Sheet", and laminated it, to use because I can't remember what to say, or how to say it. I have copied the commands I have used below. Maybe this can help you?

Be sure Nav/Radio System is On: It can be on any of the available options: Radio, Navigation, Sat Radio, etc

Voice Commands (Press and hold: “SRCE” button on steering wheel until you hear a beep, then state one of the following commands:

“Navigation Go To” (Voice Tag) example: Lisa, Dad, Home, etc.

“Navigation Help” opens system to assist with navigation commands

“Voice Help” opens list of Help commands that can be used


Radio Commands:

“Radio AM” chooses AM band

“Radio FM” chooses FM band

“Radio (frequency) AM” chooses frequency for AM (example: 1220, 1240, etc)

“Radio (frequency) FM” chooses frequency for FM (example: 97.4, 104.7, etc)

“Radio Help” opens system to assist with radio commands

CD, DVD, MP3 Commands:

“CD”, “DVD”, “Disc” selects a CD, DVD, or Disc that is currently loaded

“CD”, “DVD”, “Disc” “Track” (one, two, three, etc) system selects that specific track

“CD”, “DVD”, “Disc” “select next folder”, or “select previous folder” selects next or previous folder if one is on the disc

“CD Help”, “DVD Help”, “Disc Help” opens system to assist with CD and DVD commands

“Aux”, or “Auxiliary” selects the Auxiliary device when one is connected

The navigation system's voice recognition allows for hands-free operation of the navigation system, audio system, and OnStar® features. The DVD map disc must be installed in the navigation system for voice recognition to work. See "Installing the DVD Map Disc" under Maps . Voice recognition can be used when the ignition is on or when Retained Accessory Power (RAP) is active. See "Retained Accessory Power (RAP)" in the Index of your vehicle's owner manual and for more information.

To use voice recognition, do the following:

Push and hold the SRCE (source) steering wheel control until you hear a beep. The audio system, if on, will mute.
Clearly state one of the commands listed on the following pages.
Helpful Hints for Stating Commands
• When a multiple command is available, choose the command that best works for you.

• Words that are in brackets are optional. For example, for the command Radio [band] [select] FM, stating Radio FM or Radio select FM are both valid commands.

• When the system recognizes the command the system will:

- either perform the function

- ask you to confirm your choice by clearly stating "yes or no"

- issue an error message such as "System does not recognize this command" or direct you to "Please start speaking after the beep"

• If the system is not yet ready, the system may state "System is checking the disc. Please wait.".

• To cancel a command or if the system response does not match your verbal command, press and hold the talk symbol button. The system will reply, "System will cancel the voice recognition".

• If you experience difficulty with the system recognizing a command, try saying it more softly, and wait for a few seconds after the beep, or you may just try saying it again.

• Background noise may cause voice commands to be misunderstood, including airflow noise from wind.

• To use the voice recognition system, the map DVD must be loaded.

This system is able to recognize commands in three different languages. The system will only recognize commands based on the language selected from the Driver Information Center (DIC). See "Driver Information Center, DIC Vehicle Personalization" in the Index of your vehicles owner manual.

Voice Recognition Commands
The following list shows all of the voice commands available for the navigation system with a brief description of each. The commands are listed with the optional words in brackets. To use the voice commands, refer to the instructions listed previously.

Voice Tag Commands
The following are voice tag commands you can access by clearly stating the commands exactly as they are written. You may have up to 40 voice tag entries for destinations.

Navigation go to [destination] (voice tag), navigation select [destination] (voice tag): These commands instruct the system to select a destination saved under the voice tag you have stored. When a destination is requested using a voice tag, the system will state, "Press or say cancel if not correct". To cancel this voice tag destination, using voice recognition, push and hold the (talk) steering wheel control until you hear a beep, then say "cancel". If you are not currently driving on a route, the system will automatically create the voice tag destination as the final destination. If you are currently driving on a route, the system will automatically create the voice tag destination as a waypoint. Up to three waypoints can be created.

From the address book entry information page, press the Add Voice tag screen button. The system will respond "Name Please?".
