Don’t see your smartphone?

New phones may have been released since we last tested for compatibility. If your phone is not on this list, you may still be able to pair and connect your phone and use limited functions.

 

  • First, make sure the software on your smartphone is up to date.
  • Then, work through the pairing and connection steps.
  • If it connects, you may be able to use select functions through the infotainment system.

Notes:

  • The functions available through the Bluetooth connection may be limited. Not all functions may be supported by your smartphone or by the vehicle’s infotainment system.
  • If your device is powered on after the vehicle is running, you will have to manually reconnect the device to the infotainment system from the handset or vehicle. GM recommends that while in the vehicle this device should not be connected to other devices such as headsets at the same time.



Q&As

My vehicle tries to connect to an old phone.

Delete the phone that is no longer in use from your vehicle’s paired devices list.

Why can't I make a Bluetooth call?

There are several factors that may affect your Bluetooth call performance. A problem may be caused by your phone’s or vehicle infotainment system’s software. Be sure you have the latest software version for your phone. If you’ve updated your phone and are still experiencing Bluetooth calling concerns, try deleting your phone’s pairing and then pairing it again.

My phone won’t automatically connect to Bluetooth.

Select the phone or vehicle you’d like to connect. In most vehicles, you can only have one active Bluetooth connection at a time when your vehicle is on. Check your phone’s and vehicle’s paired devices lists to see which phone is active. The system defaults to the last paired device used in your vehicle. If that device isn’t active, it goes down the list of paired devices until it finds one that is active.
