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.

On 'automatic' (the default setting), Navigation takes you by a quicker, less congested route, where available, without requesting re-route authorisation. To switch the feature on or off: press NAV, touch Nav Config, touch Traffic Management Settings, select either Auto or Manual, touch Back to save settings.
When listening to Navigation voice guidance, you may have adjusted the volume for this using the VOLUME dial (quicker than going through the NAV/Config screen menu). When the voice guidance ends, the audio source volume takes priority and may need re-adjusting.

In many circumstances the Navigation system will continue to guide you along a mapped route, using various vehicle sensors and map data, until good GPS reception is received.
