General Information

I
GM vehicles equipped with a Bluetooth system can use a Bluetooth-capable cell phone with a Hands
Free Profile to make and receive phone calls.
I
Not all phones support all functions, and not all phones are guaranteed to work with the
in-vehicle Bluetooth system. For phone-specific instructions and compatibility information go to
www.gm.com/bluetooth.
I
The Bluetooth system uses voice recognition to interpret voice commands to dial phone numbers
and name tags.
I
When using the in-vehicle Bluetooth system, sound comes through the vehicle’s front audio system
speakers and overrides the audio system.
I
Use the audio system volume knob, during a call, to change the volume level. The adjusted volume
level remains in memory for later calls.
I
The system can be used while the key is in ON/RUN or ACC/ACCESSORY position.
I
The range of the Bluetooth system can be up to 10 meters.
