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.

Vehicle Operations - FAQs

No, vehicle design will prevent a remote start if the transmission shift lever is not in the park position. The engine will shut down, if the shift lever is moved out of park position prior to the ignition being switched on. The vehicle must be locked prior to allowing a remote start and will shut down the engine after 10 minutes, unless the remote start is extended. In this case, remote vehicle start will shut down in 20 minutes.
Lane Departure Warning is inhibited when brakes are applied, with accelerator input, steering input and turn signal activation. If any of the inhibit scenarios occur, you will not receive a warning. The system also does not identify which lane marking is being tracked. In some situations, where one marking is not of a high enough quality, a lane departure may not be warned even though the tracking icon is illuminated on the cluster.
Voice commands need to be broken down into simple sections. For example if you want Navigation to find out where you are, say “Navigation”, wait for a response, then say “Where am I”.
The option to select alternative routes is only available when route guidance is active (selected through the destination input menu) and the route is entered while the vehicle is stationary. It is not available when the vehicle is in motion or the destination is entered via Voice Control.
Yes, for both parallel and 90 degree parking. To let the APA system search for parking spaces on the right, use the turn signal to indicate right while the APA system is searching.
No, the APA system is designed to park in parallel and 90 degree spaces only.
No, the APA system only controls the steering to guide the vehicle into the parking space. You are in control of the accelerator, brake and clutch and are responsible at all times for the vehicle so should intervene if necessary to prevent any damage.
For a parallel space, it must be the vehicle length plus between 1.1m and 12m. For a 90 degree space, it must be the vehicle width plus between 1.0m and 4.8m.
For parallel parking you should drive between 0.5m and 1.5m from the cars parked on the side of the road. For 90 degree parking, a minimum of 0.7m and 1.5m is recommended for optimum detection
30km/h. If the vehicle goes above this speed for more than five seconds, the APA search is terminated.
8km/h. If the vehicle goes above this speed, the APA system will abort and the steering control will be deactivated.
For parallel parking, it depends on the length of the space but could be between one and a maximum of 10 moves. For 90 degree parking, the system is designed to usually use three moves.
Yes, the sensors are constantly scanning while the vehicle is moving forward so the detected parking space would be offered to you within a certain distance even when the APA button is pressed after having passed the space.
The APA system will continue to offer the detected parking space up to 12m from the space.
The APA system will always offer you the latest detected parking space. So if you drive past a second space after the first one has been detected, the system will guide you into the latest parking space.
There are a number of reasons for this including excessive speed, steering wheel interference, exceeding the number of allowable parking moves, changes in the parking scene and the vehicle not being stationary during gear changes.
No, the APA system will only park in a space between two objects or vehicles.
The remote control electronic key can be configured to unlock all doors or only the driver’s door when you press the button on the door handle. To find out how to change the settings, refer to your owner’s manual or the appropriate tutorial on TechConnect.
The Sensor Key system has a manual override if the battery is weak or the remote key is not working. Press the button on the key fob to release the mechanical key and place it into the lock on the driver’s side door handle to unlock the car.
Insert the remote control electronic key into the slot inside the centre console storage bin. Depress the brake and/or clutch pedal and press the START/STOP button.
No, vehicle design will prevent a remote start if the transmission shift lever is not in the park position. The engine will shut down, if the shift lever is moved out of park position prior to the ignition being switched on.

In this case, remote vehicle start will shut down in 20 minutes.
Forward Collision Alert only works at speeds above 40kph. When visibility is low, the range for detection can decrease to 40m. This includes night time driving. If the camera is blocked by ice or dirt, or damaged the Forward Collision Alert will also not work.
Forward Collision Alert has 4 settings. FAR, MEDIUM, NEAR and OFF. You can adjust the sensitivity of the feature using the controls on your steering wheel. The setting selected will be remembered for next time the vehicle is driven.
Forward Collision Alert is inhibited when brakes are applied. Sensitivity setting should also be adjusted if warnings given are not adequate for the driving conditions eg: in traffic vs highway driving.
Forward Collision Alert may provide unnecessary alerts for turning vehicles, vehicles in other lanes, objects that are not vehicles, or shadows. These alerts are part of normal operation
Lane Departure Warning only works at speeds above 56kph. Lane markings must be present for the feature to turn on. On roads where the lane markings are of poor quality, the camera will not always be able to track the lane.
Lane Departure Warning is inhibited when brakes are applied, with accelerator input, steering input and turn signal activation. If any of the inhibit scenarios occur, you will not receive a warning. The system also does not identify which lane marking is being tracked. In some situations, where one marking is not of a high enough quality, a lane departure may not be warned even though the tracking icon is illuminated on the cluster.
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.
1. Your gap setting may not be suited to your driving conditions. In heavy traffic, a different gap setting (smaller gap) would be required compared to highway driving (larger gap). This is due to the alert being based on time to collision rather than distance. In heavy traffic, you do not always need the largest gap setting as the time required to stop is decreased due to the lower speed the traffic is moving, whereas at highway speeds, more time is required for stopping, therefore a larger gap setting would be more appropriate.
 
2. Vehicle may not be travelling above the minimum speed requirement. Forward Collision Alert is only active at speeds greater than 40kph.
 
3. If the camera is blocked by ice or dirt, or the windscreen is damaged. Forward Collision Alert will also not work.
 
4. Forward Collision Alert is inhibited due to vehicle braking. There may be instances where you have touched the brake at the instant you would have expected an alert. When this occurs, you will not receive an alert as the vehicle determines there is a driver intervention to prevent a collision.

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.
