I've been over those schematics a hundred times and don't see anything that looks like a mute line . (If I'm missing the obvious let know.) After searching several sites my conclusion/theory is that the Onstar mute must come across the low speed LAN. There are LAN interfaces for hands free units on other GM/Onstar vehicles so it's probably just a matter of time before there's an aftermarket solution for the gen 5 Camaro. In the meantine, I'll try using a solid state relay to shutdown the amp.

I believe you may be referring to solutions such as BlueStar? If so, the thing with that is that you lose all OnStar capabilities...but you get Bluetooth!!!

Thanks for the tip! I just finised reviewing the Bluestar site costartech.com and it seems to support a mute function (5V=no mute, <1V=mute.) However, I didn't see the 2010 Camaro listed in the Bluestar application guide. Do you know what GM LAN the Camaro using for the Onstar unit? Is it 11-bit, 29-bit or other?

IMO, the hands free function of Onstar or Bluestar is less important without other mods. The OEM microphone is poorly placed or of poor quality. I've had several people say that is sounds like I'm speaking from a tunnel and Onstar commands usually need repeating several times. It's Ok when stopped, marginal at slow speeds and unsable at highway speed for practical purposes. Sound deadening, a better microphone and mic placement would be at the top of my list for any business use of hands free in the Camaro.

The Bluestar will offer mute capability with a Passport 9500ci and that's my primary goal at this time. Thanks again.

Cool, glad to know you found the information you needed!!! I believe the person I talked to said that their GMLAN-29 kit should work in the Camaro. As always, please keep us posted on any information or work performed!

I'm not sure how this equates to GMLAN-11/29 but codeman referred to the bus in the Camaro as being GM's new "Global A" architecture.

SS Drifter, if OnStar isn't needed in your case, Bluestar should work perfectly!

Sorry to hijack this, but it is needed to be bumped! We are working on an aftermarket solution to the Bluetooth issue with a product called BlueStar 2010 from the company CoStar ( http://www.costartech.com).

http://camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57275

A group buy has been started and we need at least 10 people to get the discount! Visit the thread link above for more information. Happy Holidays!!!

I ordered these parts from http://www.oehq.com/oeparts_20842731...M%20MODULE.htm and we'll see what happens when I get this all installed. Hopefully my onstar will still be working. But as long as I have Bluetooth I don't really care.

Wow, hopefully GM won't cancel your order. I think VT2CA said in earlier posts that some of the G8 peeps got their orders cancelled and their money refunded. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I tried the same thing, and tried to order the module for my Cadillac. It was cancelled every time. Ended up getting one off of ebay.

Here is one that is the same part number you are looking for. Comes with the antenna and has free shipping.

I've yet to get a tracking number. I've emailed to customer service requesting an update. It'll probably be canceled. :(

Well I finally got a hold of the support at oehq.com and they tell me they've had this order in to gm for a while now and he puts me on hold. He comes back on the line and gives me the same spill. GM won't ship it out unless you've lost it / stolen damaged. So no go for me. Looks like I'm stuck with aftermarket bluetooth now. At least I got them to refund my money.
