#12 of 21 No P-Bass on my radio
May 08, 2010 (5:25 am)
I just tired your instructions Jim, and there is no P-bass on my radio (2010 HET GLS). I was also told by the dealer that the factory made some mid course changes during the 2010 year, in that the current ones don't come with an ash tray, and put in a second power plug instead of the lighter. Perhaps the P-bass option was removed as well? We use our ash tray as a coin holder. What do your cars have instead of the ash tray? I'm feeling a bit slighted!!

Interesting. Mine does have the ashtray and lighter, with a 12vdc outlet on the other side of the ashtray. I would have rather just had the two 12v plugs.
The radio thing is odd. That is an outside supplied item and I would think it strange that they would make a swap in the early portion of the production year, unless my radio is a late '09 and yours a true '10?
I will go back and read my message about the p-bass. I know it is not under the Audio menu, but on the second screen of set up options. Just noticed that you have the GLS and mine is the SE (old sports car habits die hard!). I wonder if that is the difference on the radio?

It's a bit confusing that they don't include the P-Bass with the other audio controls (Bass, Mid, Fade etc.). It has its own section in the set up menu. I did find it, and it does make a nice difference, even without a true subwoofer. Maxx - take another look and make sure it's not there?

I've done it over 10 times. The owner's manual, as Jim described, does have the P-Bass listed as the option after Temp (C or F). However, when I scroll through, there is just blank spaces after Temperature. The manual also does say above the picture of the radio (if equipped), so I'm wondering if there are two different models. My stereo sure looks like the picture in the owner's manual.
Instructions: with the radio on, hit the Setup button. Scroll down using the radio knob. There is nothing after Temp, so my GLS clearly does not come with it, and the ET brochure says nothing about having it on the SE. What is SDVC by the way?
My GLS with Preferred Package and Bluetooth is a 2010, and was assembled in June 2009. It must have sat on the dealer's lot for quite some time. Again, my dealer told me that they took out the ashtray and lighter on the later 2010 models.

I'm stumped, Max. But I hope you're enjoying it anyway!

Yes, very much. My color and package were only one of eight in the country, and we were able to find a local dealer who would trade with another dealer 5 hours away, AND drive our car back for us. That's 10 hours of headache I did not have to incur. thanks for all your feedback.

Speed Dependent (or Determined) Volume Control
Raises and lowers the volume based on the speed of the car. GM has had that in the Delco/Bose radios for years. Nice feature.

My GLS is a basic model, no preferred package or bluetooth (although I do have the Ipod cable). It does indeed have the P-Bass option, however. I didn't realize that until I read this forum. Glad I did, as it does make a difference.
Regarding the ashtray and lighter - I have neither. I do have the storage compartment that takes up the space where the ashtray would have been, and I have a second 12v outlet where the lighter would have been. No problem for us, since we are non-smokers, though. Mine was made in Feb 2010, so maybe somewhere along the line they made the changes.
#21 of 21 iPod reborn
Nov 02, 2011 (10:18 am)
I had an older iPod Nano that sat in a desk drawer for more than a year as the iPhone became my combo phone and music player. After getting a 2012 Touring SE that included the iPod cable, I grabbed the Nano, plugged it in, and have been using it exclusively for music ever since. It just plays, and plays, and plays...
I've had the car a month and haven't repeated a song yet. I also like the fact that I can control many of the functions right from the steering wheel and that all iPod functionality is available on screen once you master the front panel controls. This is a pretty nice sound system for a relatively inexpensive car, and I think it gives a far better presentation than I'm used to in a vehicle of this class.
Now I guess I should try the CD player.
