    DIY Bluetooth A2DP (Bluetooth Audio Streaming)


    So after reading and doing some research I've been itching on the idea of having factory Stereo Bluetooth aka A2DP. In the forum post on this site http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/36-el...adio-pdim.html the user bojangles talks about his issues with USB and how he was able to get the dealership to install the PDIM from a Camaro. Looking further I want to avoid the dearlship at all possible. I then got in my 2012 Cruze LTZ/RS and checked the FW/SW and luckily I have the latest according to the forum post DB/DD.

    Looking on the internet and the forum the PDIM GM#22797218 is the PDIM from a Camaro and is the latest according to the forum post on the Camaro website. AMAZON has it currently for under 90 bucks, I ordered it and took apart my dash and after poking around for about an hour I finally found my current PDIM which is very conveniently located. Today the Camaro PDIM will come in, point being is hopefully since my FW is up to to latest it should be plug and play and work like a charm. (fingers crossed) I can't be certain poking around on the Camaro forum the people who have installed PDIM's never had one to begin with and they didn't have the latest and had to have theirs flashed. This is why I say this is a test, Will update and post a how to if it works along with the location of the PDIM.


    UPDATE: WORKS LIKE A CHARM


    Simple Guide to install

    I already had DB/DD installed prob will work for you too as long as your radio is at this FW. If not I'm not sure how this will work out for you. You might need to go into a dealership to update then you can preform this mod. I take no responsibility for anything about this guide it worked for me doesn't mean it will work for you or your car wont randomly explode because you installed a factory feature not available to the cruze lol.

    1. First you need the New PDIM GM#22797218, along with a flat head screwdriver and a 7mm socket

    2. Detach the passenger kickpannel that is under the center console like so. (It just pulls off but be careful)

    3. Detach the silver/golf ball trim that around the shift-nob

    4. Remove the 2 screws on each side of the change holder

    5. Sorry for the pics couldn't get a better one but kinda underneath after you remove the change holder you'll see the PDIM.

    6. Ok back underneath the passengers side kick panel you removed earlier you'll also see the end of the PDIM I used my hand and pushed it. FYI their are some clips holding the PDIM front where we removed the change pocket.

    you'll see it start to come out.

    7. After pulling it so far I let if fall down so it exposes the back of the PDIM

    8. Here we have the PDIM

    9. All you do now is replace it with the new one and your good to go. FYI the USB cord is hard to get off you need to put a flat blade in-between the metal clip you do not press down on the metal clip to remove you press up by putting something in-between.

    Are you sure your Cruze already has DB/DD? I think you should have DB/DB. 22797218 should give you DB/DD. Also, you'll get the added benefit of A2DP .

    If you do have DB/DD already, could you let me know the part number for your ORIGINAL PDIM?

    THANKS!

    limited360, this adds an additional antenna to your car, so effectively you'll have one connection to the "Phone call" bluetooth, and the other to the "Audio Streaming" bluetooth.

    You'll see two connections on your phone.

    No longer own a Cruze and still help where I can, message me anytime, for anything.

    What's the sound quality of this compared to hooking up directly via a USB flash drive or the aux cable? From what I've heard, bluetooth audio streaming isn't anywhere near as crisp.

    I listen to Pandora mostly so quality isn't perfect to begin with anyways, but I've been wanting A2DP since it will basically make my phone fully hands free.
