  1. Cell phone not ringing in car

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    Hi! I have connected my cell phone to the car via bluetooth. However, for some reason, my phone does not ring thru the cars speaker system. I have looked thru the owner manual and have not found the answer. I will see the person's name who is calling, however, it does not stay on the display...
  2. HVAC & Phone Calls

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi, Has anyone discovered a way in the Gen 2 to disable the lowering of the HVAC fan speed when a phone call is received? I reviewed the settings and options and couldn't find anything. Thanks,
  3. Bluetooth Phone Connection rings and broadcasts voice at half speed

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I have a 2017 Volt Premier. This may be an unusual problem, but sometimes, most likely when I've first started driving, I'll make a cell phone call through the radio, and the person's phone is ringing at half the speed and pitch as normal, and when they answer, the speed of their voice is also...
  4. Hook phone to external antenna

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    My 2014 volt doesn't have the option for LTE. So was curious if anybody attached a normal phone to the external antenna. It would be nice to get some use out of it for an old cell phone. I have a plan for my iPad and plenty of archaic phones to rig up to the car itself. It could theoretically...
  5. Fifty Ways to Talk to Your Volt

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Well, maybe not fifty, but so far I've counted three ways to use voice to interact with my 2015 Volt. I haven't tried voice commands for all systems; I'm mostly interested in navigation and phone commands. Can you help me sort out which type of voice commands I should concentrate on. This is...
  6. 2017 Volt fan speed reduces during phone or directions

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I know this is one of those 1st world problems, but, I am new, and just want to learn, so I appreciate your indulgence with this question. With the Air Conditioning on and the fan speed at a fast/high speed, the fan speed reduces when directions are being given or if the phone is engaged. I...
  7. Air conditioner fan stops when using the phone

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Is it normal for the fan to stop (or go really low) when you are using the phone? My wife said it might be to help with the clarity of the call? Unfortunately, I use the phone a lot while driving and the call was 45 minutes and it got HOT!!!:mad: Any clues?
  8. Modding wireless phone charger to fit in above-dash compartment

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I just purchased a new 2014 Volt two weeks ago and one of the things I liked about the interior was the small compartment above the dash. It looked just the right size to fit a wireless charging pad for my phone, and combined with the power outlet I figured it would be perfect. Unfortunately...
  9. Smartphone mount solution

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    First of all, I've searched various threads and I'm going to preface this post by asking not to reply with "why do you need your phone mounted with bluetooth" posts. Bluetooth isn't perfect, and I don't have navigation. I couldn't find a solution I liked. I like it to be close to my hand for...

  11. iCloud compatibility

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    With Apple's recent release of iOS 5 and iCloud I have noticed a problem accessing my music on the Volt's touchscreen. It seems that iCloud songs which appear normally in the iPhone playlists do not appear on the Volt's touchscreen. You can see and select all of your iCloud music on the...
  12. Bluetooth Handsfree Calling is Clumsy, Slow

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    I love my Volt, but I do have one complaint...using my iPhone to make handsfree Bluetooth calls is painfully slow and clumsy. From the time I press the button on the steering wheel, until my phone actually begins to dial, it takes no less than 25 seconds of waiting and answering prompts. Onstar...
  13. Poll: Favorite mobile device of EV drivers

    Totally Off-Topic
    Howdy – this is my first time posting, finally as a PHEV/EV intender! After lurking through a slew of green car forums for the past few months, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of threads regarding mobile phone interoperability for the new generation of PHEV/EVs. I’ve also been keeping...
