  1. Hello, I've done quite a bit of searching on this topic and can't really seem to find a fix. Was wondering if anyone could help me out here as it's starting to get annoying. In my 2014 Chevy Silverado, my options to connect a new phone to bluetooth are greyed out. It doesn't let me click it at all. Another thing that is maybe just coincidence is my onstar seems to not be working either. There is a red light instead of a green one on my rear view mirror. Every now and then it'll go green for 2-3 seconds, and then turn to red. Not sure if this has anything to do with the bluetooth.
  2. It’s been 3 month since I took delivery of my new 2019 Chevy Trail Boss and really hate that when I use the phone to call out the person on the other end can’t hear me. This is the same whether the Apple iPhone is connected to car play or via Bluetooth. Also same problem when I initially called on star to set up service. They couldn’t hear me. First thought it was cell phone reception but was not the case. First time the dealer replaced the mic over the drivers side but this didn’t fix the problem. Updated latest software updates and this too didn’t fix the problem. Took it back to Chevy dea
  3. This is pissing me off. I've never been able to get my contacts to load to my truck infotainment system. 2019 truck, 2019 phone... You would think it would not be rocket science. Flash forward to yesterday, so we have completed outfitting a new 2020 2500 diesel WT (with the plain jane WT radio). The chief said all the officers can pair their phones to the truck if they wish. What do you know? It takes just a few seconds to pair and completely download my contacts to this bare bones radio. WTF GM??? Issue an update or whatever to my radio so I can use my flipping phone!!!
  4. Please help I have been to the dealer multiple times in the past few weeks for my 2019 Chevy Colorado. They are struggling to fix this issue and no one really knows how to fix it. It keeps saying the SD card for Navigation has been removed when it hasn't been. I have an iPhone X latest update. The bluetooth comes and goes too when the navigation does. Bluetooth for phone calls will work but music won't play and I have even tried my moms older iPhone and it still does the same thing. The dealership has replaced the SD card, the whole front USB port, and the radio system unit. It still did it to
  5. Having issues with booth the Carplay function and Buetooth software in 2016 Silverado Z71. Started with the Carplay function no longer connecting. The carplay app no longer shows on the MyLink display screen nor does the vehicle mylink connection show on the iphone 8 plus device. The phone does an endless search for a vehicle with carplay.. Have tried new IOS USB cable and still no connection. The voice activation feature works when connected but only for phone calls. No other media or apps within the iphone show on the Mylink display screen. Then the automatic bluetooth concection st
  6. I connected my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy 6) to my 2017 Sierra 1500 SLT without issues when I got the truck. Contacts sync'ed and other Bluetooth functions worked fine. A couple months ago, I factory-reset my phone. I deleted the phone on the truck's display an re-paired Bluetooth. Speakerphone and Bluetooth audio work fine but I noticed soon after that it would no longer let me use voice prompts to dial outbound calls via contact names. Turns out, the contacts won't sync. This worked fine before with the same truck and phone. The only thing that's changed is the phone is now e
  7. 2000 miles out of warranty my vcim suspiciously shorts out about 2 weeks after being at the dealer to fix an antenna issue (mouse chewed thru it). I am told it will be $1200 to repair/replace the vcim. What are my alternatives if I don't care if I have Onstar but still want navigation and bluetooth capabilities? 2016 Chev Silverado LTZ. 38000 miles
  8. If you saw my comment in our Live Review of a 2014 Silverado over the last week, you know that I ran into some issues trying to listen to Bluetooth audio through my phone. I've since confirmed using some diagnostic apps that using multiple devices running Android 4.2.2 and 4.3, only the left channel is played through the MyLink system. What we can't figure out is... why?? Is there anyone else with these new trucks that has tried Bluetooth audio streaming? How is it working for you? Also, what device, OS, and OS version are you running? What version of MyLink is installed on your truck?
  9. Hi All, New to the forum. Look forward to future discussion. I purchased a 2014 High Country yesterday. I've synced my iPhone 6 to MyLink and can use the truck's bluetooth compatibility for phone calls just fine. The issue arises when I want to play music. I have no songs on iTunes. All of my music is on Spotify. The only option MyLink gives me in terms of listening to music is accessing my phone's iPod library (which doesn't exist). If I could play my Spotify music via the bluetooth connection or the USB cable I'd be totally happy. Please help!
  10. I have a 2016 Silverado 1500 crew cab with the I05 radio. Took it to the dealer for pairing issues and they replaced the HMI and updated firmware support from 3B020 to 4B012. This solved the pairing issue that I was experiencing of having to repair the device every time I entered the vehicle. Now I found that if I am on a call when entering the vehicle The call will go muted and I have to hang up and recall instead of the call transferring in the truck. (Even though it use to before the update.) Took it back to the dealer they seem to think after talking to the GMC engineer it is a software
  11. Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum. I want to add Bluetooth to my 2008 Chevy Avalanche ltz. My Avy has OnStar and factory navigation, rear entertainment, and xm radio. I want to add Bluetooth by swapping out my existing OnStar VCIM with one that has Bluetooth. Can anyone tell me if this is doable and if it will work. Please advise. Thank You.
  12. The music sounds great as usual, but the connected party is complaining of my audio (crackling, raspy, choppy) when calling via my Apple iPhone X and connected to bluetooth. I didn't have this issue with my previous phone and other devices don't seem to have the same experience. Has anyone else experienced this with a new phone?
  13. 2016 Silverado, Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Phone connects to truck via bluetooth every time with no issues. When receiving a call, it will always ring thru the truck and display on the cluster & myLink screen but SOMETIMES after answering the call volume will be out of the phone speaker only. During this time, the call will still show active on both displays and the radio volume will be silent. Look at the phone, it shows connected to bluetooth and no matter what I do on the truck or phone I cannot get the volume back to the truck. The hangup button on the steering wheel will stil
  14. Hello everyone. We've got a 2007 Chevy Avalanche I had converted to RHD and I'm in the process of adding Bluetooth to the factory radio by installing a new Motorola IHF1000 I found on Kijiji.ca, and a PAC Audio BLU-GM29 from Amazon. Unfortunately the BLU-GM29 did not com with the connection harness for the Motorola, but only those for EGOTalk and Parrot Bluetooth kits. But PAC Audio used to pack all three harness in the box. If anyone has had experience with what I'm trying to do, I'd appreciate any information on the wiring diagram of the Motorola cable, tagged "MOTO2SPLIT".
  15. I have a 2016 GMC Sierra capable of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and have been playing with CarPlay now for a little while. Yesterday I borrowed a friends used Android to test Android Auto. I'd be interested in your opinions and I will share my experience. I have had iPhones for years now. I am deep in the eco-system as my home and work computers are also OSX. Switching is a daunting thought considering my iCloud Contacts are well curated and my Google Contacts are like the wild wild west. I digress. Generally I have some gripes. CarPlay and Android both require USB and Bluetooth con
  16. I noticed on when using my bluetooth phone with my 2015 2500hd CC that phone pairs up nicely and works great after first turning it on. However after some time has passed without using, it won't dial, no audio passes as I can dial number on the phone while bluetoothed and truck shows it is connected and I can read my contacts from the truck. Also I never get any text messages at anytime. This same phone and my 2010 GMC Sierra never had a problem. Any suggestions ? Thank you Ken

    This is a Bluetooth obd2 scanner that I am trying out. It allows for real-time monitoring of my sensors.
  18. I just purchased a 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 (my first pickup) and I have what I hope is a few simple questions about the radio. 1. How can I stop the radio from turning on when the truck is started? 2. When my iPhone auto connects to Bluetooth it automatically starts playing music. Any way to stop that? Sorry for the simple questions. I’m sure I’ll have more important ones down the road (literally) lol. Thanks
  19. Hey all I have been looking on the forum for info about upgrading the factory io3 base radio in my 15 Sierra 3500. It's a work truck so I don't want to go crazy. I was looking at the pioneer 4200nex and 8200nex. I really want to keep it looking factory without hacking up the dash. I'm looking for some feedback from anyone currently using these radios or any other better head units that have nav and Bluetooth or Android Auto without spending more than $1000. Thanks for any advice!
  20. DISCLAIMER: This is a repost of the post I just submitted in the Technology Sub-Forum. I wasn't sure which to post to, so I submitted to both. MODS: Please feel free to delete/move either one.

  21. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/30/2016 Radar detectors have been used by automotive enthusiasts for decades as a tool to prevent unintentional speeding (and tickets). With the rise of connected smartphones, internet connections everywhere, and cheaper full color displays, this consumer electronics segment has been ripe for innovation. I’ve personally driven with a radar detector for over two decades. I’ve seen crappy and expensive detectors alike and there’s a big difference between the two. So, when I had a chance to test drive the new high-tech Beltronics GT-7 Rada
  22. hi - for sale a bluetooth vcim module. if you have a 2010 and under truck and would like to add eom bluetooth, this is the unit. $205 shipped priority two day shipping.
  23. Hello I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm posting in the right place. I have a 2015 3500 hd sale with 6.0 I have the 8" display with nav. It is my work truck so time in the truck I use to make calls. Every time I make or receive a call the radio stops working obviously but when I end the call the radio never turns back on and I have to manually hit a stationary play. I am well rounded with Bluetooth as my Audi Q5 and my Isuzu dump truck have it but typically when I end the call the music resumes. I hope there is a setting that I am missing. Thanks in advance!
  24. I have my Motorola Droid Maxx paired up to my 2015 Sierra Denali. When my phone receives a text message it will sometimes show a bunch of random letters and symbols, and then the text message contents right at the end. Haven't been able to pinpoint what's happening, not sure if it's my phone or the Intellilink system. Anyone else have this issue or something similar? The code didn't match any know codes for GM, so I'm thinking it's related to my phone?
