Taking your eyes off the road for extended periods could cause a crash resulting in injury or death to you or others. Do not give extended attention to infotainment tasks while driving.

This system provides access to many audio and non-audio listings.

To minimize taking your eyes off the road while driving, do the following while the vehicle is parked:

  • Become familiar with the operation and controls of the audio system.
  • Set up the tone, speaker adjustments, and preset radio stations.

For more information, see Defensive Driving on page 9-3.


Contact your dealer before adding any equipment.

Adding audio or communication equipment could interfere with the operation of the engine, radio, or other systems, and could damage them. Follow federal rules covering mobile radio and telephone equipment.

The vehicle has Retained Accessory Power (RAP). With RAP, the infotainment system can play even after the ignition is turned off.

See Retained Accessory Power (RAP) on page 9-18 for more information.

If the vehicle has a base radio it is included in this manual. See the infotainment manual for information on the connected radios, audio players, phone, navigation system, and voice or speech recognition.

There is also information on settings and downloadable applications (if equipped).


Theft-Deterrent Feature


TheftLock® is designed to discourage theft of the vehicle's radio by learning a portion of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

The radio does not operate if it is stolen or moved to a different vehicle.

Chevrolet Captiva's infotainment system boasts several advanced features designed to enhance convenience and security. One such feature is Retained Accessory Power (RAP), which allows certain vehicle systems, including the infotainment system, to remain operational for a brief period after the engine is switched off. This feature enables occupants to continue using the radio, power windows, and other accessories without needing to restart the engine, offering added convenience during short stops.

In terms of security, the Captiva's infotainment system incorporates a Theft-Deterrent Feature aimed at deterring theft and unauthorized access. This feature typically includes anti-theft codes or immobilization technology that requires a valid key or access code to operate the vehicle's systems. It helps prevent unauthorized individuals from starting the vehicle or accessing sensitive data stored in the infotainment system, enhancing overall vehicle security and peace of mind for owners.

Understanding and utilizing these infotainment system features effectively is crucial for Captiva owners to maximize their vehicle's functionality and security. It's essential to familiarize oneself with the RAP feature's duration and limitations to avoid draining the vehicle's battery unnecessarily. Additionally, following proper security protocols, such as activating the Theft-Deterrent Feature when parking in unfamiliar areas, can help mitigate the risk of theft or unauthorized access to the vehicle.
