Was the DB/DE PDIM the original one already installed or the new one you put in? What is the part number for that PDIM?Ordered from Amazon, sharp plastic and bad back caused busted knuckles, but install was done in an hour or so. Works great on a 2013 Cruze LS (with basic stereo). Not as good as other built in A2DP systems with mfr like kia and mazda - as it doesn't auto re-connect everytime. But a quick few menu presses and you can tell it to connect. mids and highs sound the same as USB, but lows are a little less. Well worth the $90 from amazon with next day saturday shipping (and the fact its a leased car and i wanted to leave it as stock as possible - and ACDelco is about as stock as you can get!!!!) My Firmware was HW DB SW DE with stock PDIM, but everything seems to still work the same, with added A2DP.
Thanks goes out to everyone that had anything to do with this!!!!!! I had to make a quick decision when leasing the car to either jump way up to MyLink to get BT audio, or stay right where i wanted to be with the $149 lease and loose my audio. A sales person told me that it had it, just like in his Camaro... So after playing with the car for a bit, I asked him to show me... No luck, as everyone on this thread knows. Big thanks to those that took the time to take pictures and take notes and post it all here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Handsfree calling is a feature of the On-Star module, even for Bluetooth. This mod provides Bluetooth music and some control over the music player from the steering wheel controls.I saw that there were 3 people able to do this update on an LS. Two of them 2013's and one being a 2011. I have a 2011 LS and I was wondering if with this update allow you to make phone calls through bluetooth?
if im not mistaken you must have onstar to have the bluetooth function. So to the best of my knowledge no you will not be able to add this feature.Has anybody installed this on a 2012 1LTw/FL? I have the 3.5 mm plug but no USB, no onstar. Upon taking a quick glance into where the PDIM should be, I don't have one there, just a slot for it. I was skeptical about this working for me as I didn't see any hanging plugs anywhere. Is there a special harness I need to buy in order to make this work?

Correct. The OnStar module is required to make Bluetooth phone calls.So you need a subscription to onstar to make hands free calling even if you're not going through their phone service?
No. The OnStar module in the car happens to handle Bluetooth hands free calling, but you don't need an OnStar subscription to use this feature.So you need a subscription to onstar to make hands free calling even if you're not going through their phone service?
