#45 of 83 2010 Equinox HDD problem
Sep 06, 2011 (1:29 pm)
The first problem I had was with the time display, the time shown was approx 10 to 15 mins more than the current time. I would set the time and after awhile the time was 10 to 15 mins fast. I took to the dealer and they updated the software and it cleared the problem. After that I am having a problem with the HDD FAV presets. When I add items to the playlist FAV it works ok for a day or two then the Playlist FAV resets and I loose all the songs I saved. The same thing happens with the Albums FAV, the Artist FAV and the Genres FAV. The radio presets are working ok. I took it back to the dealer and they tried another software upgrade, problem still there. I went back to the dealer and they replaced the radio, that didn't fix the problem.. Has anyone seen this problem and maybe a fix for it?
#47 of 83 08 Equinox Stereo with Bluetooth
Sep 23, 2011 (6:48 am)
I have an 08 Equinox and want to know if it's possible to buy a model factory stereo that DOES have bluetooth and install it into my car so I can have bluetooth. Not sold on ONSTAR and think it's a waste.

Anyone knows what pioneer stereo is compatible with the audio of chevy equinox 2006?
#49 of 83 2012 Equinox, 30GB iPod stops working
Nov 30, 2011 (4:20 am)
I bought a 2012 Equinox. It has the USB plug for my 30GB iPod. I've been able to use it for a few days...I can control it through the stereo...love it. However, the past two days, I plugged it in, and was listening to podcasts on a playlist for 10 minutes or so, and it just stops mid-podcast. The stereo screen is frozen, and my iPod says it's now safe to disconnect. I don't know what could have caused this. There's no problem with the iPod, as I use it all day at work.
Any ideas? Software refresh at the dealer?
As a side note, the bluetooth work great with my BlackBerry.
Thanks in advance!
#50 of 83 2012 Equinox phone book issue
Jan 21, 2012 (8:22 pm)
Had the EQ for week now. Still getting use to everything. We have 3 diff smartphones-all are recognize by the Bluetooth and paired up fine. Phone book occasionally shows up for my husbands iphone4g- phone book pops right up for my daughters LG vortex......but the most important phone-mine-HTCThunderbolt-no phone book at all. I seen on the GM website that my phone is not check marked for this feature, but was not a feature for the iPhone and my daughters phone wasn't even listed.....so, so much for the website. My question...anyone have a Verizon thunderbolt able to use phone book feature?
#51 of 83 2012 Equinox oil leak
Feb 02, 2012 (9:11 am)
We recently purchased a brand new 2012 Equinox LS. The minute we drove it home we could smell a burning/hot smell...we assumed it was just because it was brand new. However, after a longer drive one day we brought the car back and it smelled really awful. We checked the oil and it didn't register...we put carboard underneath and oil was pouring out. We took it to our local garage and they had it a week, replacing the rear main seal and galley plugs. So after 1000 miles the engine and transmission had to be taken out to fix this problem. Now a week later, we will be returning back to the shop because it is still leaking. We've spoken with GM about what is happening and they aren't a lot of help. Is anyone having this problem?? Did your garage know how to fix it??
#52 of 83 What do I have?
Feb 20, 2012 (8:36 pm)
We just purchased a used 2011 Equinox 1LT from a dealer. The sales person was totally clueless. How can I tell if I have the standard radio or the premium? I can see a microphone in the ceiling over the drivers seat and there are phone controls on the steering wheel. When I go to the phone on the menu is says "not available". Am I looking for a bad fuse or does this thing not have bluetooth? It does have a USB connection in the console which works great. I really need bluetooth however so if it is not included (what extras actually come with 1LT?) I need to find a way to add it. Is there a place to punch in the VIN and find out what was actually installed on this vehicle?

I have a 2012, but i assume you will have the same set up, you have to go to the bluetooth menu first and pair your device. (which if its a current gen android device you will have to DECLINE the phone book integration on the phone pop up or it will continuously connect and disconnect)
