Audio issues updates
When last we spoke, I was the proud owner of a pre-owned 2010 Traverse, which had previously been a rental unit. In some cases, as mine, the rental units are ordered (for some asinine reason) without OnStar, XM radio, or Bluetooth!
I'm still the happy owner of the Traverse, which really has had no problems other than a flat tire! I have, however, made changes to compensate for some of the items deleted from the rentals order list.
First was adding satellite radio. I had installed an ISimple gateway and Sirius tuner that works through my standard radio and is mounted invisibly in the radio bay. I've had Sirius subscriptions for some time and prefer it to XM, so I'm happy. All functions and displays work thru the standard radio, including steering wheel controls. As an added bonus, it includes an IPod connection so I now have @ 40GB of music, etc. from my IPod!! Audio entertainment problems solved!!
I just had installed a Parrot CK300 Bluetooth module along with a P.A.C. Blu-GM29 adapter to run the Parrot thru factory radio and controls. The BestBuy installer guys are still working out the kinks, but this has solved my bluetooth issue. Now I just have to worry about the government outlawing ALL use of cellphones while driving - whether hands free or NOT.
That's about it for now!!
