It is recommended that iPhone® be connected by USB cable to obtain the best functionality and performance.
MyLink can recognize up to five different Bluetooth® enabled devices but only one can be connected at any time.
It will recognize the devices in the order in which they are listed on the Device List. If a device listed isn’t in the vehicle, MyLink will recognize this and immediately pair with the device that is in the vehicle.

Phone - Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
To ensure you make the most of your smartphone’s connection with the Holden MyLink system, there are a number of things you can do to keep you fully connected on the road.
 
First up, always ensure you are running the latest operating system for your phone and all your favourite apps are updated.
 
Step 2
Keep the apps on your phone updated.
 
When using apps, such as Pandora, ensure 'conserve battery' or 'screen timeout' checkboxes are disabled in the app's settings menu, this will provide a more seamless app experience.
 
Step 3
To connect either an Android or Apple phone, make sure you use the manufacturer’s genuine USB cable for the best functionality.
 
Android users may find it helpful to unpair and repair the device.
 
Step 4
Ensure you fully power off and restart your phone at least once a week. Smartphones need to be refreshed on a regular basis to purge and clean up their memory and also correct various other glitches that can affect their performance.
 
Step 5
If you have any problems with your phone connection, you might find that disconnecting the USB cable and unpairing the Bluetooth connection will help. Once you have disconnected everything, also try turning the phone off then on again before you reconnect and pair it with the MyLink system to give it a full refresh.

Software upgrades or improvements may become available during the ownership life cycle. Your Holden Dealer will be able to advise if software updates are required.
No. MyLink software updates must be performed by an authorized Holden Dealer.
Yes, please refer to your vehicle owner’s handbook for further instructions.
Voice commands need to be broken down into simple sections. For example if you want to change the radio station, say “Radio”, wait for a response, then say “Change station”, rather than just “change the radio station”.
The Holden MyLink system has highly accurate voice-control software that recognizes a list of many commands as well as most names. However, at times there could still be names or words that the system cannot recognize.
Navigation maps are stored in the system and do require regular updating to take into account new roads. To check for the availability of updated maps, see your local Holden dealer.
Your Holden is fitted with ultrasonic sensors on the front and rear bumpers to help detect objects in front of and behind the car. When an object is detected, the Parking Assist system provides an audible warning and a visual image on the Driver Information Centre (DIC) display in the instrument cluster.
The front and rear sensors are automatically activated when R (Reverse) gear is selected. After the gearshift lever is moved out of Reverse, the rear sensors switch off. The front sensors are automatically activated when driving forwards and remain on until the vehicle exceeds 11km/h.
Yes. To manually deactivate the system when Reverse gear is engaged, press the Park Assist button on the centre console. The LED light will go out, a Park Assist Off message will appear on the DIC display and the system will remain inactive until the next time Reverse gear is selected.

Important Information

The smartphones listed have been tested for compatibility with vehicles fitted with Holden Mylink by a third party under controlled conditions. Performance of your smartphone in Holden vehicles may vary in the future based on smartphone software versions and network coverage, therefore this information should be used as a guide only. If your smartphone supports Bluetooth® but is not listed on the website, this simply means it has not been tested for compatibility. However, there is a possibility that some of the Bluetooth® features may still work, but neither partial nor full functionality can be assured.

For these reasons please consult your local Holden Dealership or call Holden Customer Care on 1800 GM Holden (1800 46 465 336) if you require further information. Please note that smartphones are warranted by their manufacturer, not Holden.
