  2. Custom Audio Cue Sound File

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    Hi all, New to the forum and new owner of a 2018 Chevy Volt. So far I love it and I'm still trying to see what all I can play with safely. Had a question regarding the infotainment system and/or Mylink. I've been doing a lot of searching online but it seems like there's not too much...
  3. Bricked MyLink

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Yesterday evening I got into my car to a completely black MyLink/infotainment screen on my ’17 Volt. No graphics, no sound, no signs of light. I tried resetting with a quick power down of the Volt before I left the parking lot and also by pressing and quickly hanging up the OnStar button (I’ve...
  4. MyLink: Changing default to Folder View

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hello Volters, I'm a bit frustrated with MyLink. I have music files organized by folder in USB and never have problem with two other cars that I've used. But with this MyLink, the default always go to song name which doesn't serve me well. When the "Just the two of us (Grover Washington Jr.)"...
  5. Instaling HD-Link IW03GF on a non-MyLink Volt

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Recently there was a thread which described the installation of a unit which would allow mirroring of a cell phone as well as adding front and rear-view cameras without reprogramming of the radio. The unit is stated to be compatible with Volts having the MyLink radios. However, since the...
  6. MyVolt, MyLink, RemoteLink issues for a year or more, no help from GM or OnStar

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    All: I'm wondering if anyone has experienced similar problems, and what they were told. I've had issues with MyVolt, MyLink, and RemoteLink for over a year now, and the answers I'm getting from GM and OnStar aren't adding up. I leased a 2013 Volt for two years in 2012, and aside from...
  7. MGA (or MGB?) bearing went out, and I feel fine..

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Usual story: engine compartment whine, changes with speed, grinding nature... The dealership took care of it in only 2 days, under warranty, gave me a free loaner car (2014 Malibu). The only thing they didn't do was charge my battery before pickup. It was great service, not really all that...
  8. Adding NAV in the mylink

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Has any one replaced there Mylink to one with NAV in it? looking to get it done soon.
  9. USB # of mp3 File Limitation?

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    MY2014 Volt: Apologies if this has been beat to death already, but does anyone know what the maximum # of Mp3 files that the system can handle/index/play? I have a 128GB Flash Drive that it appears is maxing out what Mylink can handle (no clue why?!). It seems to just pick and choose what it...
  10. Volt Repeatedly Calls My Own Phone Number

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I have an iPhone 5 (running iOS 7.1.2) paired to my 2014 Volt with navigation. Everything works as expected, but several times just after startup, I've had the car spontaneously try to call my own cell phone. The fan slows down, the radio mutes, the screen in the center stack says it's calling...
  11. 2012 VIN Number Magic?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Looking a buying a used Volt, seems like a 2012 Volt would be the best bet. I was wondering if there is any VIN number magic that could tell me if the Volt comes with the MYLink radio? From what I've read only some of them came with that radio.
  12. Replace a 2011 Volt Stereo with a late 2012 or 2013 to get MyLink

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hey Volt Peeps, I just bought a used 2011 Volt last was a great deal and I bought used because I couldn't utilize the tax benefits to their full extent...also didn't want to rely on IL to send me the 4k. I am so pumped to be part of the group. I have already gotten over 42 miles per...
  13. New Software pushed to 2013 Volt?

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I've been having intermittent issues with the Navigation system, iPod connectivity and MyLink freezing on me for 2-3 minutes over the past 2 weeks of ownership. I called my Volt adviser and they had me schedule an appointment with my dealership to check for software updates. This morning, I...
  14. New MyLink for existing Volts ?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Apparently there is a new MyLink in the 2014 Impala's that is getting rave reviews Any chance this will trickle down to 2013 Volts as an update ?
  15. 2012 MyLink comments (possibly relevant to 2013 Volts)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've seen various reports that MyLink will be standard in the 2013 MY. If so, I'm going to guess that the 2012 MyLink package is just going to become the standard non-navigation system in 2013. Otherwise, the NRE cost of the 2012 system wouldn't make much sense...I don't know how many 2012's...
  16. MyLink RPO question

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Hi guys, I have a Volt on order and I'm confused about the RPO codes for MyLink. A printout the dealership gave me (produced on-the-spot I believe -- and this was last Friday) states that MyLink is ordered, RPO code UP9. However, I went to track the order via and...
  17. MyLink photos

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Here's a bunch of screen shots of the MyLink system in the 2013 Bu... Under internet radio, there are a bunch of empty slots, maybe something more to come in the future.
  18. MyLink SMS/Text Message Alerts Not Working?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm using the MyLink app on my Android based phone. I've setup the alerts and receive them just fine via email. I don't receive any of the alerts via SMS however. I've entered my phone number and carrier in the mobile app, but no joy. Anyone else seeing this issue. My carrier is Sprint in case...
