The PDIM adds USB port and Bluetooth for streaming audio.

If you want Bluetooth for hands free phone then you need an Bluetooth enabled Onstar module.

No streaming is sufficient. Thank you. If I did want the OnStar module for Bluetooth calls I'd need To continue OnStar correct? Also is that easy upgrade or no?

The bluetooth works regardless of your Onstar subscription. In order to use the Onstar phone with minutes you would need to continue anOnstar subscription.

SummoneR is correct. You need the OnStar module to make bluetooth calls with your cell phone, but you don't need the OnStar subscription unless you want to use their hands-free minutes to make your calls.

It's a very easy upgrade. The OnStar module is located behind the passenger-side dash, just above the glove box. All you have to do is remove the glove box to gain access to it. Even if you don't currently have a module, the wiring harness is already there, and you just buy the part and plug it in.

I don't know which, if any, of the GM parts retailers have it, but you'll often find them for sale on eBay. There is one thing you should know about the modules. Both the 2010 and 2011 modules will work in your car, but only the 2011 module will allow you to access the phone book you have stored in your cell phone through the radio head. I don't know if that's important to you or not. You can still store numbers to be recalled through voice commands with either module.

Good luck.

And yes, it is called the OnStar module.

Are there sitll 2 different PDIMs? 1 for C & C and 1 for normal cars? If so would I need to spend the $$ for the C & C version?

Yes, one is for cars that have the system already installed; you just buy the module. The other is the kit which includes the module and cable to add the system. Verify this but I believe this is how it works.

So at the end of the day, as long as I can get the steering wheel switch/harness, the PDIM, and somehow find the OnStar bluetooth module Ill be fine?

I just had a very bad experience with my local dealership. I purchased a PDIM and sterring wheel controls from Tonkin Chevrolet and installed them myself. After the install I went to Parks Chevrolet to have the programming completed.

Now the bad experience begins. I was the second upgrade they have done, so I felt good about them completing the upgrade. I sat in the waiting room for two hours before the tech admitted he was having trouble. He came back 30 minutes later to let me know that he was wrapping it up. An hour passed and he had not returned and at this point I have been at the dealership 3 1/2 hours on a program that should have only taken one hour. I asked to speak to the service manager and after explaining my situation he spoke with the tech and relayed to me that during the programming a great deal of issues arose.

By situations they meant that they screwed up my car. The braking system was effected along with the Stability Track. After 30 minutes they returned with my car and told me that it was completed. I paid and was on my way, but by the first light I realized the IPOD did not work. I was beyond upset.

After speaking to the service manager once again I explained that I would return on Monday to complete the programming. I returned and after two hours my car was completely finished. Very bad experience. Make sure that the techs know what to do before you trust them with your car. I pays to ask a great deal of questions.

I'm playing on Tis2Web; got through the VIN screen, then the RPO, and then it asks me for a hardware part number from the GM scan tool or the label on the controller. The dealership is trying to tell me there's no newer software, but I have a 2011 with the C version hard and software. What hardware number do I put into the Tis2Web to get the correct printout to show them?

Do they have a 2011 car on the lot that you can test your USB device on? (Make sure it's DB/DB) If your device works correctly in the 2011 then put pressure on them to fix yours under warranty since it's broken in your car.

Other then that

Buy the 2011 PDIM module?

I did that, but they are telling me that the TAC representive is saying I have the latest and greatest HW/SW for my Camaro. They will not do anything for my car, at least, under warranty side of things. I just might have to buy the DB/DB module and install it myself. Just kind of lame, I would have taken the DA/DX under warranty, but they will not do that either. They told me that they wanted me to leave my iPhone (with my personal and work's confidential information on it) with them so they can test it. What I don't get, is if there is new hardware for the 2010 becuase of this issue, why is it not being replaced and why are they telling me that CC/CE is the latested version for my car?

So after an unenlightening conversation with the service writer, and then the service manager, they are telling me that my 2011 which is showing the CE version actually has the PDIM 20985421 already installed, and "the only thing that TIS told us is that there will be a module eventually, but it's not released yet."

Short of pulling my car apart to get to the module and check the part number myself (because I don't believe them) is there any way to see what part number is installed right now? My current plan is to just go pick up my car tomorrow, prove to them that the vert sitting on their lot has a later version of the software, and probably take it to a larger dealer in another town that might be more useful.
