Not sure what you are talking about.

You don't have to call Onstar to use the navigation. The navigation has nothing to do with Onstar.

The only thing I can guess is if your calling Onstar is you don't have the navigation option.

Really not sure........
Doesn't something not functioning correctly devalue the car?

ask yourself if a dealer will give less trade in value on a my link car than a non my link car...I doubt it...but only a judge in lemon law litigation can tell you for sure....

I haven't heard of anyone else who specifically had this problem. There can't be many, I believe, or else, I'd get some responses. If I am one of the few with this specific problem there must be a fix for it. I'm determined to pester the c*** out of my local dealer until they come up with the fix. My SM said something about changing out the whole radio this time. Would have saved Chevy some time and money if they did that in the first place.

I too have the same issue, changing the radio won't fix it. For me, I can look beyond the MyLink issues but I understand how some can't.

Maybe that's why Chevy doesn't have a fix for it. Most don't care about it. Don't you folks feel that you paid an enormous amount of $$$ for these vehicles and everything should work as designed?

Yes I do but to me the minor MyLink issues just don't bother me enough to make a big deal about it. Hopefully one day they'll be a fix, if not I'm just not that concerned or bothered by it. But again that's just me, and some things that bother me may not bother others.

nyrfan...I understand your position. Probably there some things about our cars that might bother you more than it bothers me. We all have our pet peeves.

I too have the no radio info in the HUD occasionally, the fan not displaying the correct speed....these are no biggie for me...but I now have the no rear camera parking symbols...this is a bit of an annoyance... But I will wait till my 1st oil change is due to have them try and fix it.

I don't understand you guy's reluctance to have GM fix parts of your very expensive purchase that don't work properly. If everybody that had these issues raised a stink about it, maybe they'd try harder to find fixes. It's beyond my ability to reason that GM would sell something that wasn't thoroughly tested and had fixes ready for any and all problems. But guess they aren't the only auto company having issues with touch screens. Apparently Ford makes GM look like geniuses. Maybe if my car had 662 hp, the touch screen wouldn't bother me as much.

So today was the 1st time my fan speed showed 0 while it was on, then I turned the car off and restarted and it was back to normal. I also have the radio info not showing on the hud occasionally. Hopefully it is only a software glitch and eventually chevy will have an update for it.
Twice I had the hud disappear, but reappear if the blinker was on or if I changed songs, then blank out again. I will bring these issues up to the dealer at my 1st oil change also.

I would bet this is a bug with all my link in the camaro...I would expect a fix in the future. Not the worst bug IMO....still much better than fords my sync...give it some time...I have faith.

I am the ultimate pessimist. I'm guessing when it comes time to trade my Camaro in, the issues will not have been resolved.

I agree...due to the the handsets getting upgrades, it'll be whole new set of problems in 6 months....they are chaising their tails...and until GM designs the ipod, the phone and everything else that connects to it, there will always be minor problems...and obviously that wont happen....We will all live with a few things that are not right...fine by me....

here's what i mean from a honda website - and before you say " my problems are not with phones, it's with mylink XXXX feature" - it's all the same...look at this gobbledegook:

What flavor of Android do you have on your SII? I have the same thing. Gingerbread worked perfect but then the over the air update of Ice Cream sandwich broke the Bluetooth on the SII. It will work you don't let it sync the phone-book. They changed the way the phone-book operates with Bluetooth in that version of android and had a lot of issues with it. Check your phone when it's connected under your Bluetooth settings and it will probably say Audio connected but phone disconnected to the Honda.

The Jelly bean update is out but they are not pushing it over the air on a lot of phones so you might have to go through Samsung Kies to update it.


[insert pic of man blowing his brains out here]

Biggest my link pet peeve: listening to my ipod and having to hit the menu 2 -3 times (yes it beeps) before it activate the menu list....dangerous when driving...

I agree we will always have some issues with devices connecting and playing nice with each other....but these problems from the op are correctable and have NOTHING to do with devices.

But my issues occur whether or not I am using my smart phone. I don't see a "connection" no pun intended.
