Starting July 1st here in California it will be illegal to use your cell phone unless you are hands free.
Is there a way to bluetooth into the HU or Onstar or do I need a interface device to do so?
I would like for my wife to be able to us the factory mic and speakers if possible and to be a simple install.

Any thoughts?

Pretty sure you would need a interface or another unit of some kind, or use OnStar for the phone.

I'll look into the interface.

Not sure I want to pay the OnStar fees.

I started using it in 02' when I got my 03' Escalade, and OnStar worked in places where my cell phone would not, now I use it many times a day, I am in NJ a lot and you have to use hands free.

Opt for the cheapest plan of Onstar. It is worth it. Emergency use/phone. I bought the vehicle with the consideration of that.

That is the plan I have. :)
