To my supprise, my Terrain does not have bluetooth capabilities. Can a factory type be added? I really don't want a cheesy aftermarket, plug in the cigarette receptle style

I really like the Bluetooth feature. It's just like when FM radio first came out, I'll never have another car again without it! ;D

We've never had a Bluetooth intergrated vehicle before. Now that we do with our 'Nox, I don't think we'd buy another vehicle without it either. It is a very nice feature to have.

Yes it is but not all vehicle are created equal for bluetooth...

My Maxima'a bluetooth was terrible... the people never understand me when i was talking on it... I had to use a bluetooth headset.

The one in my Terrain is wonderful.

My wife's friend had a bad experience with a Bluetooth vehicle, too. When the vehicle was parked, people sometimes could actually hear the conversation outside the vehicle.

I was quite pleased when my onstar phone minutes ran out and I discovered that my phone was controllable through the vehicle. I had my iPhone set with bluetooth on, and the phone rang in the truck. I was not aware that it was my iPhone until I answered. I also, didn't realize that I could use the voice prompt for dialing etc. with it until this time. This is my first vehicle with bluetooth so it was a pleasant surprise.

Try a visor type Bluetooth. I used one for years and wasn't cheesy at all. Motorola makes good ones. I had a jabra that was simple and easy to use.

So you can't use the bluetooth feature in the Terrain until after your OnStar trial is over?

You can, but it was my experience that I had to dial with the iPhone and not use the voice prompts as the voice prompts where for Onstar. Now maybe there was a way around that, but I didn't check that out.

You can just use the Push To Talk button on the steering wheel and give the voice commands to call a number/name using your cell phone (Bluetooth). I don't have an iPhone, but that's how it works with other phones.

Ah OK, so it would have worked while I had the Onstar phone too. As I say, I didnt take the time to figure it out. Good info to know should I ever re-connect the onstar phone. Thanks.
