Is there list somewhere?
When using search there was result of usual useless "see manual" type response - well I've checked the manual and I don't see any list of commands for without NAV cars.

I'm not sure there are any voice commands aside from the cell phone feature on non-nav vehicles. Just say "help" and see what she comes back with.

I know you don't want this answer, but: yes, it really is in the manual. I just saw it over the weekend, browsing through it after getting my new equinox last week. I think there was something like 5-6 commands, three of them are dial, call, and help, don't remember the others. But they are there.

There are a series of bluetooth commandes as well.
After the 'Onstar ready' prompt say 'bluetooth' and it will go into a speciffic menu for interacting with a paired bluetooth phone.
You'll heard a prompt like 'bluetooth ready' and if you respond with 'help' it will give you the options that go with it.
I use the 'change phones' command from time to time to switch between my phone (the default first paired device) to my wife's phone when she wants to use it for work on a trip.

After the "bluetooth" prompt you can then say "voice", and it will connect to your cell's voice commands. I'd had my blackberry for probably 3 years and never used voice commands, but now with my Nox I can dial numbers from it without copying anything into the car's directory.

I don't think you even have to say "voice". I have an old Motorola phone that doesn't really have true voice dialing, but I can put voice tags on up to twenty numbers. When I press the phone button and the little lady announces "ready" I say "call home" for example and it dials my home number, and to my knowledge it doesn't load the directory from my phone into the Nox's directory. I have never had any reason to load the phone's directory so If it does load it I don't know how to pull it up. But the way it operates may also vary from phone to phone.

I'm hoping that the voice commands will work with my Windows phone when we get our new Equinox. Ordering one soon!

With a Motorola Flip-phone (I know, 1960 called and wants its phone back !), I can say Bluetooth, then Voice, then I can say Call XXX, and it will pick up XXX's phone number from the phone's list. I suspect that you have "Home" stored withing the car's List, and it is not picking it up from the phone. Just my guess.

My wifes's 2009 Saturn Aura works with my Windows phone and bluetooth using voice. But when I do, it will dial the number, and only ring two times. If not picked up it does says something like "Call Completed" and disconnects.

Not sure why. If I manually dial the number it works fine. I can call using even names in my calling book, and it works fine, but again will hang up sometimes after only 2 rings.

A couple more commands that work for non nav voice are:

"Display ON"
"Display OFF"

Which turns the entire MyLink display on or off. I was trying to see if the "Day" or "Night" commands work but for 2105 apparently not. At least for the non Nav models.
