I have seen several videos of Volt reviews and they seem to have Pandora as one of the menu choices on the Home menu screen. I don't have that. Am I missing something or does it simply not come on a LT trims?

Thanks

I had it on my Premium until Android Auto was installed. I don't know why it disappeared.

Pandora is one of the supported Apps with Apple CarPlay and I believe this is also true for Android Auto. You have to install Pandora on your phone and setup a Pandora account. You can access Pandora when your phone is connected via a cable to one of the two USB ports in the compartment located in the center of the dashboard area below the infotainment screen.

By default Pandora may be found on the second CarPlay screen. With the latest version of iOS and CarPlay you can specify the location of the CarPlay apps on the car's infotainment screen.

From what I understand, the infotainment system used to have Pandora (in the 2016 model and 2017 prior to CarPlay/AA). Once those options were introduced, Pandora was removed from the stock infotainment system.

My MY 16 had Android Auto when I bought it (used, 1 year old) and it also had the MyLink Pandora app that operates via Bluetooth. I know that the MY 17 MyLink is slightly different so they may have removed Pandora in favor of AA and CarPlay, but I know mine has both.

Our one year old 2017 LT has Pandora on the home screen but it only works thru the Onstar wifi. Without the Onstar wifi you use Pandora on your phone with bluetooth or Carplay/AA. Car came with Carplay but never has had Android. Pandora on home screen is much more elegant looking than the Carplay version. Have you looked at both pages of the home screen?
Edit: Removed reference to third home screen (Gen 1 only).

Your car has apps for gas prices and showtimes? Is that only in 2017?

My Pandora did not come with a 2017 Volt!

"Does Pandora Come With A 2017 Volt LT?":confused:

I have Pandora but it did not come with a 2017 Volt at all. I am still waiting since 2010 for my Volt!;)

Interesting. I'll install Pandora on my Android and see if it pops up when I connect the USB and AA starts.

Thanks

i have a 2016 and it does have Pandora on both the home screen and in Android Auto
The one on the Home Screen is through Bluetooth and the one in AA is only while connected by USB
There is a pic of the button on the 2017 volt mylink page Here

I've noticed the MyLink systems that do have Pandora also have a second page to scroll to...my system only has a single page...I can't scroll left or right.

My 2017 premier does have Pandora on the screen without any connected phone, along with a second page.

Maybe the reason that you have Pandora on the main screen is that your Volt has Navigation, optionally SiriusXM Traffic and Weather subscriber-based service. It may be bundled.

I don't have Navigation or Weather on mine, but I have Pandora. I have XM, but I never subscribed to it as I have a smartphone.

Well I installed Pandora on my phone but there is no Pandora icon on the MyLink at all. No second page either.

I do have XM for 6 months I believe but no navigation other than OnStar Guidance.

I do not like the Android Auto interface at all. As soon as I plug in my phone to the USB, it goes to an AA screen on the phone and I cannot get out of it. I have turned of "auto launch" but it still launches it on my phone. A lot left to be desired. The AA icon does appear on MyLink but doesn't launch until I select it.

i have navigation but am not currently subscribed to XM

this is the default functionality as set by google since the whole point of AA is to replace the in car displays and not use the phone while driving

on the phone, if you hit the recents button then home it will take you to the home screen and be usable

Nope, my car has AA/ACP and I still have a standalone Pandora icon on my screen (and it works)...

Same here. My apps include:

Audio Phone Projection Nav
Settings Energy Pandora Weather

And on page 2:

Text Onstar Traffic

How does this compare to a non-Nav car? Or perhaps one that does not have the Bose audio system?

2016 non-Nav (I have the option for OnStar Nav but I don't pay for it), non-Bose. I have Projection (AA), Pandora, Phone, Text, Nav, and OnStar.
