  1. The Secret to Playing Music From a USB Flash Drive is...?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    [EDIT/UPDATE: So it looks like the Volt disliked the exFAT filesystem I'd originally formatted the drive with. I have reformatted as NTFS, reloaded 19GB of the original 69GB of music, and it works fine, with the drive showing up on the display as (correctly) 128GB. Initial indexing was < 60...
  2. Any way to re-seed shuffle play on USB playback

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I am surprised that this issue has lingered in the Volt infotainment software as long as it has. The short version of the problem is that the music in a USB playlist is shuffled once when you select "Shuffle", but never again thereafter, so you are left listening to the songs in the exact same...
  3. USB music stick malfunction

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Since I bought my 2013 (two years ago) I’ve used the same USB stick which contained all my music. A few times I’ve re-synced the stick with my PC as I’ve updated my collection. I use Windows Media Player 12 (Win 10) to transfer the music files and SyncPlaylist to sync the playlists (playlists...
  4. audio quality - bluetooth vs cord

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm still considering getting a used gen1 volt and saving a ton of money instead of getting a tesla model 3. I was shocked to learn that teslas don't let you play audio through USB from your phone, only via bluetooth, since bluetooth audio quality isn't as good as USB quality. Can gen 1 volts...
  5. USB ports. Why so under powered? 0.5A output in 2016???

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I was reading on another site that the USB ports in the gen 2 volt only put out about 0.5A and I tend to agree. When I am talking on the phone with it plugged in I gain about 1 or 2% charge in 30 mins. When I am using google maps it actually loses power. Why would Chevrolet bother putting in...
  6. 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.)"...

    Mostly happy new owner of a 2016 Black Mosaic Premier. Two weeks tomorrow! :cool: However am experiencing the following: Aux Input. Issue occurs w/two different iPod Classics: One 80GB (loaded w/2K+ ALAC files) and the other 160GB (loaded w/12K+ AAC files). When using the aux input am...
  8. USB and Apple Carplay

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    So I have had the 2016 Volt for about 3 weeks , I have used apple carplay with a amazon certified usb cable . Just recently the apple carplay stops working , sometimes it works and i go to hit play for a song on the touch screen and it looses connection. I have replaced the cable with my apple...
  9. Media not always accessible on USB flash drive, if phone connected by Bluetooth

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I never know, when I start the 2017 Volt, whether I'm going to be able to access the music on the USB flash drive or not. Sometimes it works, sometimes the Volt doesn't recognize the flash drive (even if it was in use, when I last turned the car off). If I turn off the phone's Bluetooth -...
  10. Using audio with iPhone 6 in my 2012 is really pushing my buttons

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hello all, I recently bought a used 2012 (no nav) and like the car very much - except for the iPhone connection to the audio system. I have an iPhone 6 (iOS 9.02) and the bluetooth connections only enables pure phone features - no music at all. When I plug in the USB it immediately acts as an...
  11. usb mp3 drive shuffling issue

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    weird situation I've been noticing: I have a usb stick plugged into my 2016, with roughly 3000 songs on it. In the audio menu, i have Shuffle set to On. It will play through a bunch of songs, maybe 100 or so, and then start repeating that same group of songs, in the same order. There are many...
  12. Recent iPhone update to iOS 8.4 broke USB connectivity

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2012 Volt, and the only thing I ever listen to through the stereo system is music or podcasts from my phone. I plug directly in via USB...which is typically very slick. However, since I've updated my phone (iPhone 5S) to the latest OS (iOS 8.4), this functionality no longer works. If...
  13. TPMS, "No Remote" connection Issues

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    TPMS Reporting "--" psi Has your TPMS started randomly showing the tire warning light and showing "--" for one or more tire's pressure reading? It could be RFID signal interference. Do you have a 12V power supply plugged in to the power port? Or, it could be an issue with the Remote Door Lock...
  14. USB Switching Device

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Just wanted to let everyone know that I recently purchased a USB switching device/hub that allows 4 things to be plugged into the USB outlet and has separate switches so you can choose which one is "on" and read by the Infotainment Center. So far it seems to work very well. I've got a 2.0 USB...
  15. USB drive placement

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I use USB for most of my music and like that the USB plug is hidden away in the center console. The problem is that the USB plug is so high up and in the way that whenever I want to put something into the console I'm afraid of smacking it and possibly breaking the flashdrive. I was using a...
  16. Solved: Make music playlists on USB to play in correct sequence

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    After 4 days in my new Volt, I just had to master this music on USB flash drive thing. Then I read that it likes to rearrange songs? Hmmm. Why would I want them in alphabetical order? So I did some tests... Note: I use Linux on my home computer not MS Windows. 1. Music formats: Can it read...
  17. Can't connect my Android Phone via USB

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi guys, I can't seem to get my Android to connect via the USB. It doesn't charge or read any files. Bluetooth, aux or car charger via the old cig lighter port all works. Just the usb, nothing happens when I plug it in, no message from the car or my phone... is there anything i'm missing?? Any...
  18. iPhone 5 connectivity is crap!

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    GM - please fix this. Incoming calls do not go to hands-free and force me to pick up the phone and activate the cars audio system to receive the call. Further, when connected via USB, the audio from an incoming call is combined with whatever audi source I am listening to (CD, Radio, etc).
  19. Solution found- playing music from iPhone/iPod touch when plugged in via USB

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    One of the things I really don't like about the Volt's interface is the iPod integration. There is no way to search or jump to a letter or anything, so if I have my iPhone plugged in (3,000 plus songs), and I want to hear a song that starts with "P", I need to scroll for a good 5 minutes to get...
  20. iPod audio stops playing

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I have 2011 Volt#639 and am delighted with it. There's a minor problem that has become more annoying. While listening to the iPod through the USB port, the audio will just stop. It doesn't fade down like on an incoming phone call or using the voice prompts, it stops abruptly. The time...
