Bluetooth

I know that bluetooth will control your cellphone but this is what i want to know. i bought this thing for my ipod that makes it bluetooth accessible. Will the bluetooth in the car work with this, or it will only connect to my cellphone

From what I've heard, the bluetooth is only available with the "convenience & connectivity" package which also gives you a usb port to plug your ipod or other mp3 in to. So using bluetooth for your ipod would be pointless really.

The bluetooth in the car will support any device that contains specific bluetooth profiles. The most basic being the headset or handsfree profile which most phones have to allow for phone calls.

More sophisticated phones will have the object push profile which allows the transfer of contacts to a car's bluetooth system.

I just checked out the site, gm.com/bluethooth, and the Camaro is not listed on the drop down. Used Corvette and, dog gone it, my phone isn't list. Oh well. But, my wife's "chocolate" is. She'll be happy!

Former rides:

1966 Chevelle (1971 to 2007)
1970 Chevelle (1974 to 1991)

Next Ride: 2010 2SS/RS Red Jewel Tint Black Rally Stripes 20" Polished Wheels

I think you will find once you get the Camaro and plug your ipod in it is way easier (and safer) to use the steering wheel and radio controls to run your ipod. Trust me. I have one vehicle that allows this and two that don't. I find myself extremely distracted in the ones that don't.

I think you mean A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile). Both end devices have to support it.

Wow, great information here.

Corathlete, do you have a good web site to help me learn about integrating phone/mp3 players into car audio systems?

Thanks again everyone.

Considering the USB port is inside the center console you'll be able to just hook up the MP3 Player up and close the console. No cords showing.

I'd much rather use the steering wheel controls than the MP3 Player itself.

+1...you can control it without taking your hands off the steering wheel the way it's already configured. As far as I know the current bluetooth set up in Chevrolet vehicles only supports phone calls.

Thanks again everyone.
Here is a press release with a little more information:

"General Motors has announced that it will begin offering optional radios in its 2009 models that include USB ports that can be used for media devices such as the Apple iPod.

The radios will let users play music and charge their media devices without the need for special car adapters. The USB ports will be identical to those found on personal computers.

Currently three models have the radios but the company says at least 5 new models will be getting them for 2009. Those that currently offer them are the Chevrolet Cobalt, HHR and the Pontiac G5. The new models will be the Pontiac G6 and Solstice, the Saturn Sky and Aura, and the Chevrolet Malibu.

Making the offering even more interesting is that you can navigate the libraries of your media devices using the radio's controls and electronic displays making browsing much easier than using the actual device."

Here are some other resources relating to hooking up ipods in your car that are worth a look:

Looking through the features of the Bluetooth offered from GM, I think we're looking at the Handsfree and Headset profile.

Headset will provide very basic functionality. Pickup and hangup.
The Handfree profile will allow the display to show who is calling, voice dialing, etc.

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

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 might try the G8. It uses a head unit from the same manufacturer

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.

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...?
