  3. CarPlay, OnStar 4G LTE, WiFi and Signal Strength

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    In my Gen1 volt I had a dashboard mount for my iPhone, and I plugged it into power only, not into the USB connector (I put my music on a USB Flash drive and left that in the car, so my music was always there). With my iPhone mounted up on the dash, signal strength was good. I'm now driving a...

  5. Bluetooth popping

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I get a popping sound when playing anything over Bluetooth for about the first minute or so after my iPhone 7+ connects. Then it goes away. The position of the phone in the car doesn't seem to make any difference. Is anyone else experiencing this, and do I just have to put up with it?

    I have an iPhone 5 (running iOS 7.1.2) paired to my 2014 Volt with navigation.
