Does anyone have a full list of voice commands available for the XLR? I have a very partial list but I know it includes "Find Italian Restaurant" and similar items.

Also does anyone know where the video/audio aux inputs are located?

Thanks! It is tough without seeing a car to figure these things out...

:yawn

Just to finish out the topic, attached is a partial list of the XLR OnStar voice commands. These came from the OnStar FAQ:

TAKE A BREAK

Hopefully if I've missed any of the OnStar voice commands, it is a small number of commands.

A few notes from using the voice recognition system and some hints I have received:

1) The voice control system "learns" by repeated use of the system. Everytime you issue a valid voice command the system learns the speaker's dialect and accent. There are no special voice training commands, instead the training is just by using the system.

2) Use the exact phrase or word in the "Nav/Radio manual" only. The system is very picky on what is allowed. If the exact phrase/word is not used, the system will respond in random ways.

3) Speak clearly and accentuate words as specified in the OnStar voice command hints. These can be found in the OnStar manual that came with the XLR. While I am discussing the "Nav/Radio" voice recognition, the speaking hints in the OnStar manual apply to both systems.

4) Wait for the beep before speaking. This is very important and the time until the beep will vary slightly.

By following the four hints above, I am at very close to 100% accurate voice recognition. It is really a nice system but some user training is required.
