When the device is connected with USB and Bluetooth the Bluetooth Audio feature is disabled.

Chevrolet MyLink can recognize up to five different Bluetooth-enabled devices. It will recognize the devices in the order in which they are listed on screen. If a device listed isn’t in the vehicle, MyLink will recognize this and immediately pair with the device that is in the vehicle.

I paired my phone and it’s playing music but I can’t see any information on my screen?
MyLink supports AVRCP 1.3 profile. This allows you to pair your Bluetooth-enabled device and see all of your song information on your Chevrolet MyLink screen. However, certain devices, like the iPod/iPhone utilize AVRCP 1.0 (iPhone 4S supports audio information with AVRCP 1.4), and while the music will play over the speakers, information about the current song playing is unable to transfer.
Can my older Bluetooth phone work with Chevrolet MyLink system?
To take advantage of all the features MyLink has to offer, a smartphone running iOS, BlackBerry, or Android platform is required. Most Bluetooth-enabled phones are compatible with the MyLink system, but some features may be limited.
Why won’t the system recognize my USB?
In most cases, the Chevrolet MyLink system will have no problems recognizing your USB drive. However, there are some instances where software on the drive may conflict with software in the system. If this happens, simply use a different USB or try formatting your USB drive before you use it.
Why won’t the Chevrolet MyLink system index my music from my USB?
We recommend that there are no other files on your device when playing music or downloading any data. Any other files could interfere with the system properly indexing your music. We recommend that your USB thumb drive be formatted before loading music and pictures. Some USB thumb drives have special security or encryption software; this software may prevent the device from being recognized. In addition, the system might not support that format of device (i.e. Microsoft Zune).
What different USB devices does Chevrolet MyLink support?

Why is there missing information on my iPod/iPhone/USB Now playing screen?
MyLink and Gracenote use song information from the device to fill in the blanks on screen. Gracenote needs to start somewhere so if the artist and album information is missing from your device, then Gracenote may not find an accurate match to fill in missing information on your screen. Make sure the music on your device is up-to-date and accurate.
Does Chevrolet MyLink save all songs to the hard-drive?
No, Chevrolet MyLink only allows you to access music through your connected/paired device. The system has built-in memory, but not a hard-drive. The integrated memory is used to store the list of the songs on your connected device this way the system will remember the list every time you connect that device.
What file formats are supported for songs and playlists?
Chevrolet MyLink supports a large variety of song file formats, including MP3, WMA, and AAC. It also supports the following playlist files M3U standard and extended, iTunes, PLS, WAX, ASX and RMP.
Why can’t I find my playlists?
Make sure your playlists are in the supported format. Your playlist will not work if the music in the list is not on the connected device.
Why can’t more like this create a playlist for the song I am listening to?
The Gracenote “More Like This” feature uses the music database that is installed in your MyLink system. If a song is released after you purchased your vehicle, it will not be in the music database so Gracenote cannot create a playlist.
What is Stitcher?
Stitcher (and TuneIn) is an internet radio application that is loaded on the MyLink system under the Smartphone Link menu. Stitcher will also need to be loaded on compatible smartphone to enable this feature thereby allowing internet radio to play via MyLink.
*Please note that cellular network data rates apply
Why can’t I add a program as a favorite, change to the next Stitcher podcast, or use thumbs up thumbs down keys?
Some Stitcher stations may not support certain features, which is why the icons are greyed out or in active. If you cannot change to the next pod cast you may be at the end of a station list. Select another Stitcher station from the menu to continue listening
How long does it take to acquire my stations?
Depending on the quality of your connection, it may take the MyLink system about 30 seconds; once acquisition is complete, you’re ready to listen to your show.

Please make sure the iPhone has the latest Stitcher app, the phone is unlocked and no apps are running in the foreground (you can see home screen)

When Gracenotes fills in missing information, does it go back on my device that way?
No, Gracenote is technology embedded in the Chevrolet MyLink system only, it will not fix any missing information on your MP3 player, USB drive or iPod/iPhone. However, as long as the information on your device doesn’t change, that information will be in your MyLink system every time you get in your vehicle.
Why was the information on my playlist not complete?
MyLink and Gracenote uses song information from the device to fill in the blanks on screen. But Gracenote needs to start somewhere. If the artist and album information is missing, then.Gracenote may not find an accurate match to fill in missing information on screen. Make sure the music on your device is up-to-date and accurate.
Why is there no album art for my song?
Gracenote does its best to fill any voids in your music collection’s information. However, there are even some artists or album covers that Gracenote may not be able to find because information was missing from your music files. If cover art is not available, images of the artist or genre will be displayed in its place.
Why does Gracenotes logo pop up and down on my screen when a device is connected?
This is perfectly normal. Once a device is connected, Gracenote starts working immediately to index the song list, and assign voice tags. While this process is happening, the Gracenote logo will pop up on the screen, letting you know that the technology is working. The length of the indexing process will depend on the number of songs on your device.
Why Couldn’t Chevrolet MyLink find my artist/song?
Gracenote assigns digital voice tags so you can access artists, albums, and genres, just by saying their name. However, some new or less popular artists may not be in the Gracenote database. And there are times when several artists sing different versions of a song or two artists may have the same name. In this instance Gracenote will show you list of possible matches. Select the one you want to play.
Why Does Chevrolet MyLink not understand my command?
Chevrolet MyLink has high-accuracy enhanced voice control technology, however, there are some things that could interfere with the system understanding your command. Highway speeds, open windows and high fan speeds are just some of the possible things that could interfere with MyLink understanding your exact commands. Voice-recognition with background noise is extremely challenging. To remedy this, close all windows and reduce the fan speed to a minimum and retry issuing your voice command. If this still doesn’t work, it may be because you’re speaking too soon. Wait for the beep, then pause a brief second before saying your command. This gives the microphone time to open and prepare itself to receive the speech signal.
