How To: Pair Your Bluetooth Device With GMC IntelliLink

Our new GMC models come with high tech features to keep the Fort Wayne area connected and always ready on-the-go. The first step to maintaining a connection with your loved ones and your entertainment is pairing your Bluetooth devices to your car. This process is simple and will just take a few minutes.

Before You Begin...

There are a few things you need to do on your phone or device. You will need to enable Bluetooth and make sure it is active. Also, your phone needs to be discoverable, which means it can be found and recognized by other Bluetooth systems looking for devices to pair with. If you have any questions on how to locate your Bluetooth, we suggest you check your phone's owner manual, as this can differ from phone/software. Once you have this all started, grab your keys and head outside to your vehicle!

Time To Pair!

It's up to you if you want to pair your phone by using either voice commands or through physical infotainment system controls.

If you are pairing your phone with voice commands:
  • Press the Push to Talk button on the screen, and say "Bluetooth." The system will respond by saying "Bluetooth ready."
  • Wait for the beep, and then say "Pair."
  • The system will respond with "Please start a search on your Bluetooth phone."
  • Search for possible Bluetooth connections on your phone or device. Select your vehicle from the available options.
  • You will be asked to enter a 4 digit code, which is displayed on screen, or to confirm a 6 digit code displayed on your phone matches one displayed on the radio.
If you are pairing your phone with radio screen:
  • In the controls located in the center of the instrument panel, just below the screen, push either the "CONFIG" or the "Phone" button
  • Using the control knob marked "MENU," select "Phone Settings" on the screen.
  • Select "Pair Device (Phone)."
  • The display screen will then prompt you to start a Bluetooth search on your phone, and provide a four-digit pin.
  • Start the pairing process on the cell phone.
  • Locate and select the device named after the vehicle Make and model on the cell phone.
  • Follow the instructions on your cell phone to enter or confirm the PIN shown on the vehicle's screen.
  • If prompted by the phone to accept the connection or allow phone book access/ download, select always accept or allow in order to utilize contact dialing within the vehicle.
If you are pairing with the IntelliLink with 7" Color Touch Screen/ 8" Color Touch Screen:
  • Press the "HOME" button
  • Touch the "Phone" screen icon, or press the phone button
  • Select the "Search Device" option on the touch screen menu.
  • Select the device you wish to pair from the touchscreen menu. If it does not show, make sure Bluetooth is enabled and the phone is discoverable.
  • If your phone supports Simple Secure Pairing (SSP), it will pair with the phone.
  • If your phone does not support SSP, you will be asked to enter or confirm a code which will be displayed on the infotainment screen.
  • If prompted by the phone to accept the connection or allow phone book access/ download, select "Yes," "Always accept," or "Allow" in order to utilize contact dialing within the vehicle.

Of course, if you experience any issues or confusion, we can happily pair your phone before you leave the dealership with your model. Just talk to our sale staff and we'll do it for you. On the other hand, if you already left, you can contact us at (877) 748-4017 and we can walk you through it.
