I'm looking to buy a 09 CTS EQUINOX TORRENT VUE G8 GEN 8.0 BLUETOOTH ONSTAR COMM MODULE VCIM 25990227

Is there anybody here that is running this vcim or another Bluetooth vcim with the gmx550. Do they work together ok. I'm looking to pull the trigger and buy this vcim but I'm curious about whether the lock pick I have will give me trouble.

Thank you for the input.

Do I have to have the vcim programmed after I swap them out?

I don't care about losing onstar. I don't use it. I just want the Bluetooth to work.

GMX550 will work with the new VCIM without flaw. You can be listening to you iPhone on the GMX550, get a phone call and it reverts to the VCIM like it should.

To use the new VCIM's Bluetooth no programming is required. It's simply plug in play, with the obvious exception of pairing your phone and the Bluetooth. If you want to keep OnStar the programming will be required and it's hit and miss if that will work.
