Connecting an iPod

To connect the iPod, connect one end of the special iPod connection cable to the iPods dock connector.

Connect the other end to both the USB port and the auxiliary input jack located in the center console.

The USB port and the auxiliary input jack are located in the center console bin. If the vehicle is on and the USB connection works, a GM logo may appear on the iPod.

The iPod's music information will be shown on the radios display and the music begins playing through the vehicle's audio system.

The iPod's battery charges while it is connected to the vehicle and if the ignition is turned to ACC/ACCESSORY or ON/RUN.

It can also be left connected to the vehicle after the vehicle is turned off. With the vehicle turned off, the iPod will automatically be powered off and will not charge or draw power from the vehicle's battery.

A standard iPod USB cable, like the one that came with the iPod, cannot be used to connect an iPod to the vehicle. The special iPod connection cable that came equipped with the vehicle or that was made available from your dealer must be used to command and control an iPod.

Use a standard 3.5 mm (1/8 in) stereo cable to connect an older iPod model that is not supported, or if the special iPod connection cable is missing. Command and control of the iPod using the infotainment control buttons and knobs is not supported when only a 3.5mm (1/8 in) stereo cable is used.

Commanding and Controlling an iPod

An iPod can be controlled by using the radio buttons and knobs; the song information shows on the infotainment system's display. To connect and control the iPod using the radio controls, use the special iPod connection cable that came as standard equipment with the vehicle as part of the USB option.

The special iPod connection cable can also be purchased or made available from your dealer. See your dealer for more information.

Use the MENU/SELECT knob to bring up the iPod Menu and select Songs, Artists, Albums, Playlists, and Audio Books to play from the iPod.

Disconnecting an iPod

To properly dismount the iPod USB device before disconnecting from the vehicle, press the softkey under the EJECT tab on the infotainment display screen during iPod playback.
