Bluetooth "not available"

I recently bought a 2011 Equinox 1LT and advertised bluetooth capabilities. When I got home and started figuring it out it appears to be unavailable. I go to Phone Settings and tells me "not avaiable." I do have a smartphone with bluetooth. Am I out of luck getting it repaired (I do have full warranty) or is it even repairable? Thanks.

Says its for a 2010 but same concept for the 2011.
My guess if you go through the same setup as video and your phone still cannot pair, try another phone or you don't have one try from the place u bought it, i am sure the salesman has a phone u can try.

That video would be great if I could even get that far. Bluetooth isn't even an option when i go under the Phone Settings, just says "not available"

Re: Bluetooth "not available"

If it does not give you the option unfortunately may not be installed on your model. I may be wrong.
Did you buy it from a chevy dealership? Does it still have a warranty on it? You might be able to take it into them just to confirm.
When was your Nox born? It will tell you on the little silver sticker in your door panel. It will be just a month and year. That way you can confirm the models came with bluetooth or not. Tough to say. But it sounds to me that it is not available on your nox.

Re: Bluetooth "not available"

From my surfing the internet on this issue, im thinking my car must have been a rental or fleet vehicle. In that case the car wasnt ever equipped with bluetooth/onstar...etc to save money -___- its a shame, really. I do have warranty on it still so i might take it in and confirmed. Until i do that, would installing the after market onstar enable my bluetooth? Ive read getting that will "revive" the bluetooth and you dont need a subscription to it?

Im just kinda erked by this situation because my nox was advertised with bluetooth. but then again its my responsibility to check that out before i purchase :/

Advertised by the dealer for this particular vehicle, or generic Nox ad?

It has Bluetooth but I believe it is only through the mirror speakeror you could do what my wife did and get a back up camera too

It plays Bluetooth through the car speakers has A2DP and FM trans mitter to the radio. Back up camera turns on when back up lights go on. It is a cool mirror the only down side is it needs recharged but I am sure a hardwired solution could be done.
