Hi Cody

What about the 2013 Camaro? I can play Pandora through my iPhone5 /bluetooth but Pandora on the Inforlink is a waste. It does not show on the touch screen so I can dislike/like songs.
Right now it's in the shop because I had black screen. Hopefully a software update will fix it. My USB port had also been acting up the last couple of weeks as well.
Will we ever be able to update software via web instead of having to take the car in every time?
Thanks for you time, Patricia

Need help making my Galaxy S4 to work right.Phone is paired but wont work to my voice comands???? Please Help!!!
My issues are simular to this members.

1. I press the phone icon and say "VOICE"
2. Camaro says "accessing phone"
3. My phone then activates and the hands free *(on my phone) asks me to say a command...through my phone NOT the car speakers.
4. At the same time that my phone is asking me to say a command, my car is telling me "goodbye" and hangs up both my car and my phone.

I'm trying to get this cleared up. I have a 2013 LS without the USB drive in my car. There is no way for me to stream bluetooth audio withouth paying for the PDIM to be installed, is that correct? The website says it comes standard. What gives? Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, so if I get the PDIM installed, can I not have the steering wheel controls installed too in a 1ss or will that not work?

So here's the "funny" part: I have a european 2013 Camaro (finally received the keys two days ago, YAY!), it has the post-lifting radio (without nav): no CD slot, but usb and aux ports in the under-elbow box.
I can pair my phone with the radio to call (and recevice calls) via bluetooth and use the radio as one huge hands-free set.
But it seems there's no way for the car to be paired via bluetooth for music streaming.

Do you know what's required to get that working? Just a radio software update, or do I need a PDIM replacement?

My understanding is no PDIM upgrade for 2013

I researched this prior to spending money, what I was told by the dealer and also a Chevrolet rep on this website:
"I am sorry to hear of the frustrations. The best course of action is to work with the dealership's advice as they are certified technicians and will be able to offer the best solution for you at this time. I do apologize for any further frustration. This particular option is only available in the 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, 2SS, and ZL1 trim levels. We do document concerns and feedback such as this for further review. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to let us know!"

It didn't make any sense to me, but the unofficial answer is that Chevrolet wants to push "myLync" so they changed the radio head for the 2013 model. I didn't spent the money to test and see if this was all true.

My temporary solution has been to purchase a Bluetooth receiver that plugs into a USB charger I have in the cigarette plug in the arm rest. Works great, except that I have to control the music via the phone, not steering wheel controls.

TOMLINK, YES it has.....as was a long time ago, there was a TSB issued in 2009 right after the cars came out.

seeing as how you have a CC/CE if your car was still under warrantee, it would been replaced......however, if it not, you are on your own. but its an easy fix. Its PLUG-N-PLAY, just replace the PDIM. Here is the TSB and it has the latest/greatest HW/SW version p/n on the top.

Thanks for the reply but 2 things now:
- My warranty was up 1/1
- This is not much of a problem to me, so I can live with it.

Usually I set the files on USB to random anyway.

well I typically use a flash drive for day to day running around. but what first started as my problem, as my car NEVER kept its memory for the USB settings. every time I turned my car off, when I got back in I would have to turn the "random" or shuffle back on.....and wait till it re-initialized. to me, that was such a PITA. Then I found the PDIM thread looking for a solution.....

The cost of the PDIM isn't all that much.....and its an easy install, as its in the console. in fact there is a thread on how to access it.

you can even get one on AMAZON, and its only $85

not sure.....but why don't you go ahead and buy a decent surround sound set-up and be done with it.

So I am sorry if this has been answered... but I have looked through this thread and am not sure if it has.


I have a 2012 RS and it came with Bluetooth availability only for my phone. Meaning that music streaming does not work.

It appears that my Bluetooth phone function works through the radio and not the onstar. I have not touched the onstar buttons since I have had the car... I discontinued onstar service right after the free trial expired.

To me it looks like I have Bluetooth function of my phone only.. through the radio.

So my question is... to get Bluetooth music streaming.. what do I need to do? Get a new PDIM? I was worried about this because I did not want to get a new PDIM and then lose my Bluetooth phone capability.

Thank you all for you being a great support team!

P.S. I have to share that I am in a really good mood because a kid who was told he had incurable cancer and then was treated by me and now looks like he is in remission ( I am a radiation doctor). Kid 1 Cancer 0

I'm not clear on the PDIM, but I am clear on being highly disappointed in the audio function with my iPhone 5, and now 5S with my 2013 RS. Using the iPhone cord always connected to the car through the USB Port in the glovebox, I get about 3 out of 5 successful start ups on Pandora. When I use the Bluetooth functionality, it is about 1 in 5 successes. With the cord, I typically unplug it from the phone, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in. Still have 1 in 5 times where it starts a song from my iTunes list. I've never been able to step in the car, and have the phone kick in with the iTunes or Pandora music. I rent a lot of Ford vehicles and Chrysler 300's...those always start up with Bluetooth playing whatever I last played.

First, are software updates available at any GM dealership. Second, was it ever design criteria to automatically pick up connectivity for music where it left off?

Any insight will be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Just got the info back from my dealership that european Camaros without MyLink have no bluetooth audio streaming and no official way to have it supported.

Do I have any options on this one, or should I just buy a bluetooth headset base and connect with minijack cable into aux port?

I have a 2010 2SS if that matters.. Up until a week ago I could stream internet audio thru my system via bluetooth... However I musta messed something up cause now I can send and recieve calls via a bluetooth connection but I cant get the internet audio to link up. What gives?
BTW I used to have two paired devices showing on my phone. One for the audio and one for the phone. Now I just get one. I have tried deleting and re-pairing several times.

PDIM on 2012 Camaro 2LS

Went through a lot of trouble this week to get my PDIM installed and working, I'm hoping this information can help others.

Car: 2012 Camaro 2LS

I Installed a PDIM myself (part 22872777)

It comes with the PDIM, Harness and USB/3.5MM piece. The combined USB/3.5MM component will replace your current 3.5mm component.

I took it to the dealer and brought the installation instructions with me, it had programming instructions on the last page.

I Have the following hardware/software versions after the dealer programmed it (For $115):
HW: DB
SW: DB

This information can be found by holding down the menu button on the bluetooth audio or usb audio inputs.

I can now stream music via bluetooth and usb, and control songs with the steering wheel. I have read that there is a HW: DB, SW: DD version, can anyone confirm this? I heard that it fixed issues related to indexing and static. I haven't noticed any of these yet, but I have only tested it for about 10 minutes or so. I was considering going back to the dealer to ask if they could give me SW: DD, but I'm not sure if that exists for this part number?

Hope this helps someone.

YES there is a HW-DB SW-DD, but there is not a SW update, such that you can have the dealer update it....to have gotten the DB/DD you would have needed to install PDIM 22797218.

One of the Customer Services reps here found this PN for us here and posted it a long time ago in the original PDIM thread that was started in 2009. I had that PDIM installed in 2010 and hasn't missed a lick since.

Mine takes forever to re-index the USB drive after the car turns off/on, it's annoying. i wish i would save the index and and re-do it every time the car starts. 11.3GB of music on the drive. Sad to hear that my software cannot be updated to HW-DB SW-DD and that I'm stuck with HW-DB SW-DB. I guess I'll just have to live with it as long as I have the stock radio unit :(.

the only time mine re-index's is if I remove my flash drive. that is a rare, I just live mine in the car. no need to take it out, unless I have to load some more music on it.

Likely an issue with the USB stick you are using. I have a 64GB stick with about 40GB of music on it, and it will begin play within a few seconds.
