03-25-08, 11:25 AM
If i am right the 07 and 08 Cadillac Esclade is equipped with the Delphi Automotive Inc. Supernav navigation system.
Does someone know if this navigation integrate in system is compatible
with the Delphi Bluetooth Connectivity Device and if it is possible
to integrate this device into the szstem in the escalade using the described funtions.......
Here are the links for the Bluetooth device
Appreciate your feedback
Maybe the GM Geek will know.

that's actually very good find. I wish I could put my hands on one of those.
what I 've been told is, on the new Cadillac generation, bluetooth device will be inserted into the on star module. (may be the same one)
link from post #1 basicaly shows what Delphi came up with in general. it could be for Aftermarket, or other car makers they make product for, or who knows.
Delphi is wierd and unpredictible.

Mark do you think we will be able to retro the new bluetooth module into the escalade? It would be nice to call delphi and see what more we can find out about this piece. I'm still waiting for scosche so i'm not holding my breath anymore.

Mark, did you receive feedback from your friend the Delphi distribuor.
I mailed my inquiry to the Delphi supportline in the US and Europe as well,
will see with what they revert...
cool! it can provide audio feedback...
is this available now??
This was a great "catch" that you stumbled upon! Very timely too, just before Scosche Blue Fusion is released. I think we'd all much rather have a plug n' play product that's actually made by the same manufacturer of the head-unit.
Hopefully we'll find out an ETA on this product in the coming week.

Seems that we need a dealer in the states which is willing to help us.
Has anyone an idea ?
When the '09s coming off the line in a month or so, can the use of this box be confirmed?

Spoke with my Service Writer and after some digging he informed me that this product from Delphi will be available in new vehicles but not available for purchase. :rant2: Maybe someone else will have better luck buying this unit for install in 07's and 08's?
Yeah, that unit is going to be a commodity, and it's not like people will be pulling it out and selling it on ebay like they do the navigation units. I'm sure there's going to be a GM part number for it at some point. Even if the dealership won't do the install it seems like it will be plug n' play.
Having just bought my 08 a few days ago, I was extremely disappointed to find it had no bluetooth capability. This looks like the proper device to get it. It would be nice if it had all the possible bells and whistles.
Pretty sorry state of affairs when my motorcycle actually has a better system than this truck. I put a Garmin Zumo 550 on my Concours 14 and have a J&M bluetooth headset. The Zumo picks up my iPhone and presents me with it's phonebook, call history, yada, yada. And it pipes calls right to the helmet, the thing is easier to use and sounds better then just using the phone itself.
