I'm having trouble "Store"ing a 10-digit (long-distance) number in bluetooth in my 2011 Camaro 2LT, it cuts me off after saying 7 digits. Does anyone know how to store a 10-digit phone number?

Update - I figured it out, say a 1 before the 10-digit no. (this is somewhat strange since a 1 is not necessary when dialing a cell phone, but whatever works).

I have the 1ss without the usb connection. I want to use my ipod, so how do I accomplish this? Do I need to purchase the PDIM? I saw steering wheel controls on a website and was wondering how difficult this addition would be? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, you need to purchase the PDIM.

You have two options, either install the PDIM yourself or have the dealer do it.

In both cases the dealer will need to "program" your radio to recognize the PDIM.

Here is the DIY thread for installing the PDIM http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77662

Here is the thread for installing the steering wheel controls (which also need to be programed by the dealer) http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73511

I'll see if I can do some searching around, maybe there is a service bulletin listed somewhere for it.
Can we purchase the new PDIM hardware and swap with the old unit. Or does the radio/bcm need to be updated as well?

I think the new unit may will need to be programmed. If you have problems with the PDIM(radio screen freezes, steering wheel controls lock up, ipod disconnects etc) take it to the dealership and have them replace it under warranty.

Help with MyTouch4G

I recently had the pdim module installed on my 1SS. I now have a AUX option as I toggle through the source options but I can't get anything to work through the USB port. Should I have a USB option after AUX or are they one in the same? The USB port charges my phone, and lights up various flash drives and iPods I've plugged in but nothing different appears on the radio. Just Aux Input on the screen. Could the dealer have programmed it incorrectly?

DOes anyone know if it possible to call handsfree to a contact on the phone? I can say "dial" and then the number, but I would like to say "home" and have it dial the number associated with that name in the phones (iPhone) address book.

Something I just discovered that would be useful in the FAQ's at the begining of this thread is that my USB stick wouldn't work formatted with NTFS. I reformatted to Fat32 and it worked. Hope this helps someone else.

I have to take my car back to get the USB installed but I have a question that the dealer couldn't answer for me. Is the PDIM just the module or is the USB part of the PDIM?

I really want the USB which I thought I was ordering when I told them to get me the PDIM but then I read a post on here last night that said the PDIM was just the module that allowed the steering wheel controls. If the USB is included then I'm in good shape but if the USB is something I'd need in addition I need to make a call . Thanks for any info

The PDIM is a module that has a USB port and a Bluetooth radio for streaming audio. It is separate from the steering wheel controls.

Provided the dealer ordered the correct PDIM accessory kit, it will have all the parts needed to add the USB port in the center armrest console.

Awesome. That's exactly what I wanted. I really tried to do my homework and was 100% on that until I read about the steering wheel control BS on here yesterday. That and the fact that the dealer didn't even know what the PDIM was because he had never been asked for it on it's own (minus the connectivity package as a whole) made me nervous. Looks like I have a call to make tomorrow.

Thanks man

Press the phone button on the steering wheel, then say "bluetooth" then "voice" then after it says "accessing [phone name]" say "dial [contact name]". With mine you sometimes have to say "dial [contact name]" twice.

Anybody know what the deal is with the PDIM lately? My zune worked fine, but after pulling it out to add/update music it continues to index - I left the car on acc for the afternoon and it never finished indexing... I have the 120G newer Zune. Is this what happens when there are too many songs?

Is the 2500 limit on actual songs, or folders i.e. artists/albums?

Can not find any sources that can confirm, not that it makes much of a difference @factory grade they are still crap speakers. Have Boston Acoustics Premium speakers in Camaro and Jeep Overland, and Pioneer system in Cobalt SS, none of them are on par with just a basic $60 set of aftermarket Pioneers, Kenwoods, etc. Sad really, could do so much better, all you really get is the locations so you don't have to figure out where to mount those new tweeters etc.

Confirmed Sansa Fuze+ 8gb with 8gb micro sd works great, and cheap.

My iphone and radio wigs out sometimes as in just won't play like everything is frozen on my 2011 2SS. I can still do stuff on my phone while its plugged into the car, but no audio even though it says it is playing. Should I take her in for the PDIM update?

Is it plugged into the USB or Aux jack? I get random but rare freezups with my USB drive.

Okay, I ordered the pdim installed it. Asked dealer to program for me. Said they did it. Plug in Android - nothing. Plug in iTouch - nothing. When they are plugged in, they can both charge.

Brought it in second time and they replaced the radio. They said this should fix it. Long story short they said it didn't work, iTouch disappeared (claimed honest mistake, told me to call back Monday), and the Android still can't be recognized.

Is this anything other than a failure to know how to program the computer properly? Any way to eliminate all other variables (bad PDIM module, bad wiring job)?

Phone Controls on Steering Wheel

I've only had my car for a month, so maybe I'm missing something here. I thought that if you wanted to use the OnStar system to make a call, you press the phone icon on the rearview, and if you want to make a call using your paired cell phone, you press the phone icon on the steering wheel. When I press the phone icon on the steering wheel, it goes to OnStar Hands Free Calling, not my cell phone...device is properly paired and recognized, and bluetooth is active.

The bluetooth system in the Camaro has two different systems that will connect to stream your audio (owners manual section 7 page 16) and the bluetooth phone connection as well (section 7 page 21). To use both of these systems you would have connect to both or one or the other. I would try going back through and repairing your phone to the phone portion of the bluetooth system. If that doesn't work you can always get the vehicle checked to make sure it is pairing properly to the correct features. I hope this helps you Kimber.
