I have the 2013 Camaro and a 2014 Silverado, both with Mylink. They both have the same problem with the 4 ipods that I connect to them, 2 last gen classics, an ipod nano and an ipod touch. They all do the same thing, locking up, etc. I had a Ford Edge last year, connected the ipod classic to it, never had a problem. Also connected it to a 2009 Audi A5, same thing, no issues. GM has some serious work to do on their ipod interface.

On a positive note, copying my library to a 128gb SD card, putting it in a card reader and plugging that into the USB port works very well.

I have a 2013 2LT/RS and I use an iPhone 4S. I have about 700 songs and for the most part, I haven't had any catastrophic problems with MyLink. I've connected it a few times where it sits in the infinite "Reading USB..." or "Indexing" and nothing happens. If it happens for more than 10 seconds, I unplug it and try again. A few other anomalies now and then, but pretty content with the system. I haven't checked my version after reading this thread yet.

I'm sure some of you with problems have possibly tried these things, but figured I'd throw it out there since no one has mentioned it.

First, close all apps on your iPhone and power it off completely. Then power it back on and plug the phone in the USB port. I've had 2 issues that after power off/back on, it worked fine.

Change your cable to a true apple cable. A lot of cheap/Chinese knockoff cables support charging only and no data, or problems with connections.

Just throwing out some suggestions that it seems GM probably didn't mention. I don't use Bluetooth often other than phone calls.

Ok well get this. I have car at the dealer right now for a steering gear issue and they gave me a loaner which is a 2014 Tahoe. It has MyLink in it as well. Obviously newer version. I plugged in my iPhone 5s (which does not work in my Camaro because it takes forever to index) and it starts playing music within 30 seconds of being connected. Not only that it only did an long index the first time I plugged it in but now it does a quick index and is finished in a couple minutes each time I plug it in. It works flawlessly, actually it works like is described in the owners manual. I can access playlists, artists, etc without issue shortly after plugging in the iPhone 5s. I don't have to switch to another source before shutting the vehicle off so the next time it won't lock up on me. It also has a Bose sound system in it. Sounds a hell of a lot better than the BA one in the Camaro. I don't get it. If they can get the newer versions to work why can't they do something about ours? I will be sad after they fix my car because I am being spoiled by something that actually works!

I've had my car for 1000 miles now and the MyLink system sucks.

Constant iPod indexing, not recognizing that it's plugged in, randomly switching to navigation screens, annoying pop ups for text messages with buttons that you are not allowed to use, etc. I'm pretty irritated with the software. It's horrible at best. Sometimes the lag on a button push is several seconds. What the hell is the OS doing?

They seem to be using Gracenote software which works flawlessly in my BMW. I don't get it. The indexing thing makes no sense at all. My 2008 Infiniti worked better than this and that software is 6 years older. WTF?

GM blew this one.
