Bluetooth (Overview)

For vehicles equipped with Bluetooth capability, the system can interact with many cell phones, allowing:

- Placement and receipt of calls in a hands-free mode.
- Sharing of the cell phones address book or contact list with the vehicle.

To minimize driver distraction, before driving, and with the vehicle parked:

- Become familiar with the features of the cell phone.

Organize the phone book and contact lists clearly and delete duplicate or rarely used entries.

If possible, program speed dial or other shortcuts.
- Review the controls and operation of the infotainment system.
- Pair cell phone(s) to the vehicle.

The system may not work with all cell phones. See Pairing in this section for more information.
- If the cell phone has voice dialing capability, learn to use that feature to access the address book or contact list.

See Voice Pass-Thru in this section for more information.
- See Storing and Deleting Phone Numbers in this section for more information.

WARNING
When using a cell phone, it can be distracting to look too long or too often at the screen of the phone or the infotainment (navigation) system. Taking your eyes off the road too long or too often could cause a crash resulting in injury or death.

Focus your attention on driving.

Vehicles with a Bluetooth system can use a Bluetoothcapable cell phone with a HandsFree Profile to make and receive phone calls.

The infotainment system and voice recognition are used to control the system. The system can be used while in ON/RUN or ACC/ACCESSORY. The range of the Bluetooth system can be up to 9.1m (30 ft). Not all phones support all functions and not all phones work with the Bluetooth system. See www.gm.com/bluetooth for more information about compatible phones.
