    2011 ctsv iPhone connection?

    I have an '11 ctsv coupe with the stock iPod connector that came with the car. It won't play anything off my iPhone 4s (pandora,aol radio, etc). Is there anything I can buy that will allow the radio to recognize my phone? When I hook up the phone it says searching, then goes to xm radio mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
    Ron

    Re: 2011 ctsv iPhone connection?

    do you not have any music on the 'ipod' part of the phone?

    i've heard sometimes that if there's nothing on the 'ipod' that it will not connect correctly

    ...

    there's another way to get it to connect with no songs on it but i forget what that is... it's in another thread started by someone just like you who couldn't get their phone to play pandora

    I would also like to know how to play music from my iPhone in the car. I tried once on the trip home from the dealer, but got frustrated and never tried again.

    Re: 2011 ctsv iPhone connection?

    1. Music has to be on the phone
    2. Music needs to be *playing* when you plug it in

    Try those two steps first. If that doesn't work, then there may be an issue with your head unit or the USB/audio port in the center console.

    Do you have the factory wire connection? You need that

    Re: 2011 ctsv iPhone connection?

    Agreed....I bought an Ebay version that didn't work. I finally got a GM cable and now my iPhone music plays and is recognized on my AUX input. I get playlists and everything else. Pay the difference for the factory cable.

    I didn't have music saved on my phone, but after I added a few songs from iTunes, I opened pandora on my phone, plugged it into the factory cable and it works! Thanks for the help!

    Buy it from Chris or Luke....my dealer wanted $20 more for the cable than what Luke sold it for (including shipping!)

    Chris, where can I go to order from you? I too made the mistake of ordering one off eBay, and it doesnt work.

    Also, on a more random note. I have heard people say on here that you have to post on comments before you can private message. Does anyone know how many messages it takes before you have the ability to private message?

    Thanks
