Hands free Cellphone For GMC

My 2010 GMC truck did not come equipped with the hands free cell phone controls. It did come with OnStar. OnStar would sell me service for my phone, but I wasn't interested in paying them for it. So.......

Found this device called BlueStar II sold by Costar Technologies. They make a replacement module that replaces the OnStar with their device. It uses the mirror and/or steering wheel controls and allows you to pare your cell phone(s) and other blue tooth devices to it. Works real well so far. I want it just for the phone as I have no need to hook an I-Pod etc up to it. Local GMC dealer charged me $50 to install it for me which required some removal of dash panels and then removing the OnStar module. Install the BlueStar and then re-assemble the dash parts. If you don't have the back problems that I do you could do it yourself in under an hour.

Anyway, just figured I'd pass along the info for those that don't have any Bluetooth in their GMC TV's.

Nice find. Kudos to the GM dealer on not raking you over the coals for installing it.

How strange my 2010 1 ton dully was capable of linking my phone to the truck. You must have bought cheaper model. Mine was a LTZ. Later RJD

Small town living at it's best!. I use them for all of my service and sales for years now. They treat me right so they get my business.
