    I'm a little sceptical myself. I'm guessing that if it were that easy, the GM engineers would know that. I'm also guessing that GM would love to have all those OnStar subscribers back. But I'm definitely looking into it.

    Re: 2000 Dts On Star

    OK so I tell you what. I'll do the same thing I did for AJ. I'll be the guinea pig and I'll stake my car as a test bed. If you works then you'll have me to tell everyone that it works, it can be done and GM is wrong.

    So when do we start?

    i wanna see conclusive tests.
    rbd has a bt onstar conversion for cellphones that untilizes the onstart mirror and buttons and uses your existing plan, phone and minutes.

    So i dont see a need for this but i still wanna see proof.

She actually told me that it was impossible! The fact that we were speaking to eachother was impossible! I have photos and I still need to take it to the dealer but I did make duplicates in the wiring harness and I have a bunch of onstar modules antenna wires mirrors etc.. also the nav screen changed into a keypad and stores phone #'s and it asked for the whole # not one digit at a time. Is anone still interested in this ? I think I've made some progress.
    I thought all phones nowadays came with standard bT. Dont they?
    Anywayz...My 02 dts came with stock nav and the anlalog onstar. It too changes to the keypad touch screen when i press the onstar button but cant speak to Onstar Ops. Just that recorded Demo voice.

    Since its not active i cant dial anything...

    You said you upgraded to the gen 6 digital onstar-
    How did you get the parts?
    You mentioned Impossible-
    Does that mean your not registered or paying and have the services for free or just that your car isnt suppossed to be able to upgrade to digital but did?
    Becasue if thats the case then im game

    Not all phones are blue tooth. I have a top of the line Nextel i930, it has IR but no blue tooth, and it's not the only one.

    Actually, I don't really see the point of blue tooth.

    Re: 2000 Dts On Star

    As far as I can tell, the only pieces that would need to be changed are the cellular transceiver and the through-the-glass cellular antenna. It looks to me like the same Motorola transceiver module used in Motorola's original bag phones, car phones, analog flip phone car kits and cellular based burglar alarm panels, etc.

    I believe that someone should be able to adapt a CDMA transceiver to the Motorola 25-pin harness interface. The interface was in heavy use for more than 15 years (I saw it for the first time in 1983.), so the knowledge must be out there.

    Re: 2000 Dts On Star

    When we first researched the problem we found that there is no single module. The cellular parts are scatted throughout the car some of which are integrated into other costly components. So it's not a cut and dry swap this with that scenario.

    As I said previously. If it were even close to easy they would allow us to upgrade them. There is no upgrade path for cars prior to 02.

    no one asked GM to pay for it. We were told that there is not way at any cost to upgrade the system.
