Audio and Visual - FAQs

MyLink supports most smartphones and MP3 players that can be plugged in via the USB port in the centre console storage bin. It also supports many different brands of USB flash drives.
The infotainment system supports song file formats including .mp3, .wma, .wav and .acc name extensions. Many iPod® and iPhone® models are also supported and for a full list refer to your owners’ manual.
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 recognise 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 recognise this and immediately pair with the device that is in the vehicle.
Simply access your settings to see the list of different paired devices. Scroll through the list to find the device you’re looking for. Alternatively, you can also press the “Push to Talk” button and say “Change Phone.”

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.

Phone - FAQs

There can be a number of factors that may influence the performance of your infotainment system when your phone and the myLink system are connected. We recommend you watch our 'Top Tips for Phone Connectivity' video tutorial located under the 'Phone' tab of this page to ensure you're getting the best connection between your device and the system as possible.
Most phones are compatible. See www.holden.com.au for details of compatible phones. Refer to the tutorial section of this site for more information.
 
You can find a compatible phone list at www.holden.com.au in the vehicle owners section or a helpful link is provided on the home page of myHolden Connect.
Check your mobile device operator’s manual for information on how to switch on “discoverable mode”. Once you have done this, follow the steps in the myHolden Connect tutorial.
If your phone fails to pair successfully with the system, turn your phone off. After a few seconds, turn it on and restart the pairing process.
Slowing your speech down can assist. Wait for the beep before you start speaking, avoid long pauses and speak in a moderate volume.
Text messages are only displayed on the screen when the vehicle is travelling slower than 8km/h.
Siri is available on some Apple iOS products and can be used in an “eyes free” mode through the Voice Control system to make and receive phone calls, select and play music, read out and compose text messages, and more. Please refer to the Apple website for further information. www.apple.com.au
 
Yes, if you are making a phone call. When plugging in a compatible Android phone for the first time to use Android Auto, the system will automatically initiate the Bluetooth pairing process, to make it easier to set up. If you have already paired Bluetooth, there will be a “Bluetooth Connected” pop-up.
Yes. In your vehicle’s infotainment system, go to 'Settings' and then change your 'Android Auto' settings.
Yes. In your vehicle’s infotainment system, go to the settings and then disable Android Auto. You can turn Android Auto back on at any time again.
Please verify that you followed the instructions on getting started with Android Auto. Make sure that Android Auto is enabled in the settings of your infotainment system and connect your phone with a factory-provided USB cable. After connecting, certain device settings may need to be confirmed on your phone. Verify that your infotainment system’s date and time settings are accurate.
In order to use this technology, your phone must be USB tethered. This also allows your device to charge while it’s in use. For best performance, use your device’s OEM/factory-provided USB cable. Aftermarket or third-party cables may not work. Note: When using Android Auto, you will be prompted to Bluetooth-pair your device upon plugging it in to the USB port.
No. The phone’s display is disabled once you launch Android Auto.
Compatibility with Android Auto is a functionality of the embedded myLink infotainment system and is not a separate feature, so it carries no additional cost. Some apps that you access in the vehicle through the compatible phone may enable in-app purchases or use your phone’s data, which could impose additional costs, especially when roaming. That includes music streaming apps and navigation apps, for example.

Your Holden is fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter as part of the exhaust system to help reduce emissions. To prevent clogging of the filter, the system periodically goes through a self cleaning process however under certain conditions such as stop/start city traffic it may not be able to complete the process.
 
Step 2
If this occurs, a “Diesel Partic Filter is Full Continue Driving” message will appear on the Driver Information Centre display in the instrument cluster. To clean the filter, continue driving until the message extinguishes which may take up to 30 minutes. Turning the engine off while the message is displayed will prevent the process from completing.

If you are not receiving Side Blind Zone Alerts, check the feature is not turned off through the radio customisation menu. If the feature is on, ensure the rear bumper is clean of any dirt or mud as this can prevent the alerts from activating. Any damage to the rear bumper where the radar is located can also cause false or no alerts.
Side Blind Zone Alert will not report an object if the difference in speed between your vehicle and object of interest exceeds 16kph. If your vehicle is being overtaken, you will not receive an alert if the difference in speed is 65kph or greater.

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.
