MyLink software updates

Hi - we purchased a 2012 Chevy Equinox recently and it is equipped with the MyLink Touch Radio. I'm hoping someone here might have some insight.

I'm inquiring about software updates. I've poked around various GM sites including the 'myconnectedradio' site

and I can't seem to find a section with available updates for the radio. I've also emailed 'infotainment at gmexpert dot com' (contact at myconnectedradio site) and got a bounce back failure, so I'm guessing their mailbox is either full or no longer active.

My hope is that a software update will solve two small problems I'm seeing.

1) partial indexing of an iPod's music (not always, but occasionally). Sometimes everything will index and at other times only some will index.
2) better Bluetooth compatibility with what is arguably the premiere android phone on the market today, the Samsung Galaxy S3. It regularly disconnects and re-connects several minutes later.

Are there any software updates for this radio yet that any members are aware of? If so, where can I download it? If not, are any known as planned?

Re: MyLink software updates

Try your onstar button and talk with them about it. From what i was told if there are updates, they are automatically pushed through onstar.

I will be interested to hear about this also, DW has a G-S3 and it would be nice to know it is supported.

Re: MyLink software updates


If you push the On* button, and ask them about updates for the myLink system, they will have no idea what you're talking about. At least, the rep I was speaking with had no idea what myLink even is.

I did contact the GM Infotainment department and spoke with Kyle. As of right now, there is no way to update myLink radios. He said they are working on it, but no ETA.
My wife recently got a 2013 Nox, and there are a few extra apps she has on hers, that are not on my '12' myLink. I was hoping to update, but not yet.
Good news is, he mentioned again that they are still working on map apps

Re: MyLink software updates

Joggy, good to know...I purchased my 2012 LTZ just before Christmas at the dealership I work at and have been looking for updates. I was actually going to go into parts/service to see if anyone there knew if there were updates for the system. I will keep on the lookout, hopefully there will be updates soon. I would like to have some of the new options such as "Movie" and "Weather" even though I can access the info on my phone as well. Just a little more convenient when I'm already in the car to check it there.

Re: MyLink software updates

The GM sites for Mylink and Intellilink will be where the updates will be presented and able to be down loaded into a thumb drive. As of now there has not been any Firmware updates.

Most of the issues will have to be delt with the phone OS updates as the GM system is stationary and the phones are always changing. It is the phone makers place to address most isssues. Imagin if GM had to chase each and every phone around to fix all their issues?

The dealers will at times have to do some updates to the GM system if it is anything very complex but as of now GM will offer the updates on the web sites when they are needed or available.

Don't bother with On Star as they will never have any idea. They are apples to oranges here as this system is not their issue to deal with.

A well versed dealer is you best place to check as they will get the latest info but then again it depends on the dealer. A good dealer keeps up while poor ones remain clue less.

Might watch here as they keep up on info and these are the two best places for a non tech to watch.
