Haha. I'm not that familiar with Nokia and I actually looked it up. That was actually my first ever cell phone!



I thought to myself, hmmmm, I don't think it has Bluetooth. He's gonna be pretty disappointed.

You will NOT be able to do A2DP to the Camaro. If you'd like to use an iPod/iPhone/other mp3 player/USB drive with the camaro, you have 2 options...
1. USB plug (2ss/2lt/1lt with con pack only)
2. headphone jack (using the MP3 player controls)

Option one will use the stereo controls. This will work with both the buttons on the deck as well as the buttons on the steering wheel. Here's a video including some of it in action...


In the bluetooth menus, there's 2 options... phone and GPS. Nothing for A2DP MP3 players or phones. A2DP is a relatively new technology that isn't heavily supported.

About phone compatibility with bluetooth... bluetooth is a standard. Therefore all bluetooth phones *SHOULD* work just fine with the Camaro. Depending on which version your phone supports you may have different levels of support (actually dialing calls vs only answering, etc). The lists on Chevy's site are just the ones that they've tested and it's impossible for them to aquire and test all phones. Also, if your phone doesn't work, you may want to take it into your carrier's store to see if there's a software update for your phone. Bluetooth compatibility is something that seems to get lots of updates so there very well may be one.

If you have a question of whether your phone would work, let me know and I could look it up quick.

Actually that is not true. I work for GM and I am the engineer who designed the USB/Bluetooth interface. The A2DP connection is in a different menu and will allow you to pair any device supporting the A2DP profile.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions about the Camaro USB or Bluetooth interface.

Yea, sorry. When I tried it out at the auto show I didn't see anything for it in the menus so I jumped to the conclusion and it wasn't mentioned at all in the dealer training videos or other documents that we've seen. Thanks for the correction and good to have you on board!

And good on ya for including that in it. I certainly wasn't expecting it. Sounds like you have a cool job. It's the kinda stuff I'd like to do. IT isn't all that fun and not all that related to my major but it's a paying gig so no complaints!

And a question I've seen floating around... do you know how hard it would be to add in the PDIM/USB to the 1SS/1LT without the convenience and connectivity package? Are the wiring harnesses all there and it just requires a plugin or does the deck need to be changed or...?

This allows streaming audio from things like cell phones that play mp3's then? As long as they also support A2DP bluetooth of course. That's a nice little bonus for that I didn't expect for the Camaro's bluetooth.

No problem at all. I've been surprised how much our documentation is lacking for Bluetooth. Since this is our first A2DP implementation, I think a lot of people within the company don't really know what it means and so it's not very prominently displayed. I think with the iPhone/iPod Touch coming out supporting A2DP in the near future, this feature will really take off.

About adding it in to other trim levels, the PDIM is a separate module from the radio head unit, so in theory it would be possible to add it in. I don't know however if the wiring would be there to support it. Since we work so hard to reduce cost and especially mass, I would assume that if the PDIM is not installed, the wiring is not either. I didn't work on that part of the development, so I don't really know.

And about my job, yeah I absolutely love it. I've been with GM for a little over a year and a half straight out of college and this was my first project, so I can't complain!

The Bluetooth for phone calls is a separate module and I don't know the exact profile version for that, but it is a very standard handsfree profile that should be supported by all phones that have BT Support.

For the audio streaming, it is using Bluetooth core version 2.1 + EDR with secure simple pairing. It also supports the A2DP v1.2 and AVRCP v1.3 profiles for the audio streaming and limited control of the remote device.

Yes it is. We have yet to figure out how this will work, but the unit can be updated via the USB port.

I don't think it will work, You would need a Bluetooth that can stream Audio and I don't think this one will. Acura's can do this. Like the other guys said with the USB it's a non-issue. I know you don't like cords but you will not see it.

Trudawg, I am the engineer who designed the user interface for the audio streaming portion of our Bluetooth and I kept those type devices in mind specifically so we would support them. So yes, you will be able to use your Blutooth adapter with the Camaro system without any problems. Your Bluetooth phone will also connect at the same time without any problems.

Hey Codeman, quick question. Let's say I'm streaming music over A2DP from my Bluetooth phone. What happens when I get a phone call? Do the Headset/Handsfree profiles take precedent over A2DP?

EDIT: Also, will we be able to transfer our phonebook to the head unit? I believe that is the OBEX (object exchange) profile if I remember correctly.

Unfortunately, the way the system is architected, you may not be able to connect via A2DP and Handsfree profiles at the same time. They are using two separate Bluetooth nodes in two different modules. So, your phone has to be able to support connecting to multiple devices at once. I hear that some phones can do this, but a majority of them will not.

As far as phonebook goes, no, you will not be able to transfer the phonebook. That is coming with our next generation phone Bluetooth module. You'll have to use your phone's voice recognition through the Bluetooth system to dial your contacts or program them manually into the system.
