Hey guys

i have just purchased a 2011 Cruze SRI-V
there is a greyed out Bluetooth symbol on the 7-inch color display (top right)
but I can't find the settings to pair the device. (Apple iPhone 6)
please help. I have read on a few posts here that there is a module behind the glove box. That may be my next option?
see if I can locate it.

also wondering how to find what Firmware I am running.

thanks heaps guys!

If I recall correctly, you need to go touch the "Home" icon at the top of the screen. From there go to Phone >> Phone Settings >> Bluetooth >> Pair Device. Follow the prompts and find your car in your phone's bluetooth search list. When the phone is connected, the greyed out bluetooth icon at the top right will turn from grey to blue.

Alternatively, if your car has voice command recognition, activate it and say "Bluetooth" and then follow the prompts.

The screen is not touch screen.
I have seen a YouTube video on how to do it but I do not actually have the phone setting in my config settings
No voice command either

I have a 2012 CDX with the older type screen and going from memory I just pushed the call button on the steering wheel and it said no phone connected and do I want to pair. Then I just followed the prompts.

My guess is you don't have bluetooth as the button on the steering wheel is how you answer the phone. If you have an answer button on the dash, try that and see what happens.

Sounding like it! might have to try the trick of putting the on star chip in and see what happens!
Let me know what happens, by the way where do you live, I am in Sydney.

My car came with bluetooth standard. My daughter bought a 2015 SRI-V hatchback a few weeks ago and it has the touchscreen and it works great.

The screen shot shows he has the bluetooth and phone icon. Would he have that if he didn't have the bluetooth fuction?

It also looks like the Nav version, so it might work differently than the more common non-Nav units.

The 2011 Sri-V did not come with Bluetooth, it was an add-on.

That's why it is greyed-out in the screen, and there are no buttons on the steering wheel.

So it should be as simple as purchasing a onstar chip? would it be plug and play as i have the icons on my screen already?

do you mean that you do not have the button on your steering wheel grs?

I have a 2012 MY13 model and that was the first CDX to come with bluetooth standard. I think for the Holden bluetooth to be fitted you need the right controls on the steering wheel. Ask a dealer, but I think the Holden system to be fitted would cost more than going after market.

Just found this article and no bluetooth.

No. There are lots of wires that just aren't hooked up to anything, it won't work. You'd be best off talking to a dealer about getting it upgraded, maybe that can be done. Or a specialist bluetooth and head-unit mob.

That's right, my steering wheel looks the same as yours, cruise control on the left and sound system on the right.
