Chevrolet MyLink† and Gracenote use song information from the device to fill in the blanks on screen. But Gracenote needs to start somewhere.

The Gracenote More Like This feature uses the music database that is installed in your Chevrolet MyLink system. If a song is released after you purchased your vehicle, it will not be in the music database, so Gracenote cannot create a playlist.
No, Gracenote is technology embedded in the Chevrolet MyLink† system only; it will not fix any missing information on your MP3 player, USB drive or iPod®/iPhone®. However, as long as the information on your device doesn’t change, that information will be in your Chevrolet MyLink system every time you get in your vehicle.
Chevrolet MyLink and Gracenote use song information from the device to fill in the blanks on screen. But Gracenote needs to start somewhere. If the artist and album information is missing, then Gracenote may not find an accurate match to fill in missing information on screen. Make sure your music on your device is up to date and accurate.
Gracenote does its best to fill any voids in your music collection’s information. However, there are even some artists or album covers that Gracenote may not be able to find because information was missing from your music files. If cover art is not available, images of the artist or genre will be displayed in its place.
This is perfectly normal. Once a device is connected, Gracenote starts working immediately to index the song list and assign voice tags. While this process is happening, the Gracenote logo will pop up on the screen, letting you know that the technology is working. The length of the indexing process will depend on the number of songs on your device.
Gracenote assigns digital voice tags so you can access artists, albums and genres just by saying their name. However, some new or less popular artists may not be in the Gracenote database. And there are times when several artists sing different versions of a song or two artists may have the same name. In this instance, Gracenote will show you a list of possible matches. Select the one you want to play.
No. Gracenote is available on the 2012 Volt, 2012 and 2013 Equinox, 2013 Volt, 2013 Cruze, 2013 Camaro and 2013 Malibu and Malibu Eco. It is not available on 2013 Sonic and 2013 Spark.
Chevrolet MyLink† has high-accuracy natural voice recognition technology; however, there are some things that could interfere with the system understanding your command. Highway speeds, open windows and high fan speeds are just some of the possible things that could interfere with Chevrolet MyLink understanding your exact commands. Voice recognition with background noise is extremely challenging. To remedy this, close all windows and reduce the fan speed to a minimum and retry issuing your voice command. If this still doesn’t work, it may be because you’re speaking too soon. Wait for the beep, then pause a brief second before saying your command. This gives the microphone time to open and prepare itself to receive the speech signal.
Because of our speech patterns, sometimes we tend to run a string of numbers together, so they may not be as clear as they need to be. You can greatly increase the accuracy of the number by slowing down and properly enunciating each number. For example you can say, “Dial 5 5 5 1 2 1 2.” If this still does not work, you can use the Digit Dial voice command which allows you to speak numbers one at a time or in groups. For instance, you can say, “Digit Dial” and Chevrolet MyLink will instruct you to enter one number at a time. This is the most accurate way of dialing via Natural Voice Recognition.
To take advantage of all the features Chevrolet MyLink† has to offer, a smartphone running an iOS†, BlackBerry® or AndroidTM platform is required. Most Bluetooth-enabled phones† are compatible with the Chevrolet MyLink system, but some features may be limited.

However, at times there could still be names or nicknames that the system cannot recognize. The more you use the natural voice recognition feature, the more the system will recognize your speech patterns and accent, making the system more accurate.
