  1. Hi All, I own a 2013 Chevy Spark LS with the MyLink built in. About a day ago my Spark started having an issue where I cannot control the media in my link using the controls on the steering wheel and whenever I go into reverse I now get a message saying to "Service Rear Vision System" even though (at least to my knowledge) my Spark has never had a rear vision system built in. Another thing I have noticed is that the OnStar icon is missing from the display even though I'm subscribed to OnStar with the Guidance package and also the outside temperature value is null. I have no check engine or service lights on when I'm driving the vehicle and the cruise control and other items on the steering column seem to be in working order. Also, I can still control the MyLink infotainment system via the touch screen and its additional controls (volume, power, etc). At first I thought there may have been an issue with her fuses but I checked the relevant fuses in the cabin fuse box and they all seem to be OK. I've tried a resetting the vehicle to factory settings (MyLink > Settings > Vehicle Settings > Restore Factory Defaults). I haven't tried resetting the radio defaults yet. Any thoughts on what's going on or what other troubleshooting steps I can try? I'm very tech savy but I'm not too confident in my knowledge of the engine of my Spark.
  2. Hi? I am a person with a Korea. I am curious about the Mylink connector for nextspark 2016 Can you help me? It is a photograph of a connector.
  3. Hey Everyone! I'm a new owner of a 2015 Spark and completely in love with it! My previous car was a 2003 Accent that I kept driving since 05', so I'm getting used to a ton of these new features like Cruise Control and a working AC unit. :p I love tinkering with stuff as well, so the first thing I did was just play around with MyLink before even driving. I poked around a bit in Dev mode and found the OS running under MyLink. I wasn't sure how to exit it, so I clicked on Start > Suspend thinking it would kick me back out to the console. At that moment, I realized I messed up since putting any device in suspend mode is never the answer. :( Now the screen is black, the radio keeps playing the same station at the same volume before it was suspended, and none of the controls (like holding the power button) work anymore. I've read though the forums and understand that I need to hard-reboot the car (unplug the battery for 30mins) to fix, but is there any other way to get the system back online without doing so? I'm hoping to find something like a soft-reboot to keep my settings. :c Otherwise, it's the price to pay for touching things I shouldn't be touching.
  4. If there are any Spark LS owners out there looking to upgrade the radio to the Spark/Sonic My Link 7" touchscreen then I have some information to pass along about getting it unlocked. After trying to have the local dealer unlock it and told they couldn't get anything to work I began searching around for some of these companies that unlock the GM theft lock. After a long search and being told it was pretty much impossible I did find one guy who does this and after his researching, determination and hard work he got the radio unlocked and works perfectly in my LS. I will upload pics soon. He can be found on eBay and his website is He is one if not the only one who can currently unlock these radios and does so in a reasonable turn around time. Pass the word and thank you.
  5. Last week I took my 4 month old 2014 LS1 on a roadtrip from Florida to Massachusetts. Overall the car performed excellently the whole except for the Mylink Radio. As I left the south and approached the New England area the radio intermittently stopped showing the correct station tuned to. The display changed how it looked and would show the previous channel when I changed channels. Sound wise the channel would change (using either seek, manual tune or channel search). Once I got North of RI the problem became permanent. I was in MA for a week and the radio did not work properly the whole time. Turning the car off and back on again, the display would change to the correct frequency for what the radio was tuned to at the moment, but would not change if the channel was changed. Driving back south I wasn't paying attention to the display and just used the steering wheel switches to seek through channels until I found something I liked. Somewhere in Virginia I noticed the Mylink display was working properly again. That was 9 days ago and I haven't had an issue since then. My questions: Has anyone ever heard of something like this before? Is there perhaps a regional signal difference that interferes with proper Mylink display operation? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi, everyone , My name is Dom and I have had my Spark a week now . I am going to browse the forum for some useful tips but I do have a Question. Believe it or not I was not aware of the my link system when I bought the car so I have just the plain am- fm radio ( long story about that maybe another time Is it possible to add the touch screen after the fact or do I need to add a after market system. With everything rounded with the current radio I don't see how a aftermarket would fit very well. Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.
  7. When I connect my iPhone with a cable the audio system cycles rapidly through a connection screen as if the connection is immediately failing. The iPhone has been paired using Bluetooth. I can connect my iPad without issue. I want to connect the iPhone so the phone battery does not get drained and I can access Pandora through MyLink. Anyone know what i am doing wrong?
  8. So yesterday, I got in my car to drive home after work, and after the phone connected I changed the source to bluetooth. It started streaming extremely fast for about a second or two then it crapped out on me with this error message on the screen. The head unit indicated that the phone was still connected, even though I disconnected it and even turned the phone off, it still showed up as bluetooth connected but would not stream the phone or was I able to make any phone calls. The rest of the radio would work fine (XM FM ...) Turning the unit on and off again did not resolve. Killing the car and restarted would not resolve. After the car sat there for an hour off, I tried again and all was well. My brother just bought a new sonic with the exact same radio unit and he said his has done that twice already, and he's only owned it for a week. This is the first time mine has ever done this, and I've owned it since August 6th 2012. Anyone else experience this with their mylink unit?
  9. Chevrolet Spark Gets a New App for Maps <br> <br> Segment-exclusive MyLink system adds GogoLink navigation via owners' smartphones <br> <br> GM MY LINK FORUM - Its in-your-face colors already make the 2013 Chevrolet Spark hard to lose in a crowd. Now it will be even harder to get lost while driving the Spark and the Sonic, thanks to available GogoLink. <br> <br> GogoLink is an embedded smartphone application that delivers full-function navigation – including live traffic updates – through the vehicles' MyLink infotainment system. It was introduced today and is expected to be available in the fall. Consumers can test-drive GogoLink for themselves at a special kiosk in the Chevrolet exhibit the New York International Auto Show. <br> <br> <object width="837" height="472" id="AOLVP_us_1535166954001" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param'>"></param><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><param name="flashvars" value="codever=1&publisherid=1612833736&playerid=61371447001&stillurl=http%3A%2F%2Fserve%2Ecastfire%2Ecom%2Fmedia%2Fntw%2F313%2F98%2F987919%2D8285623%2D1280x720%2Ejpg&videoid=1535166954001"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true" bgcolor="#000000" width="837" height="472" name="AOLVP_us_1535166954001" flashvars="codever=1&publisherid=1612833736&playerid=61371447001&stillurl=http%3A%2F%2Fserve%2Ecastfire%2Ecom%2Fmedia%2Fntw%2F313%2F98%2F987919%2D8285623%2D1280x720%2Ejpg&videoid=1535166954001"></embed></object> <br> <br> "GogoLink gives Spark and Sonic customers cloud-based navigation and live traffic alerts projected on the vehicle's seven-inch, high-resolution touch screen for a great value," said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet marketing director for small cars. <br> <br> About 90 percent of expected Spark and Sonic buyers own smartphones, Landy said. "This technology is typically found on cars costing far more, but next-gen customers are accustomed to being connected. By using a smartphone app, Chevrolet found a smart and safe way to provide navigation." <br> <br> GogoLink navigation includes: <br> <br> - Emergency information such as police, fire and the nearest hospital<br> - Thousands of points of interest<br> - Local Search via Google<br> - Where am I? locator<br> - Live traffic functionality provides crash reports and lane closures, and with alternative routes<br> - 3-D maps<br> - Ability to store native maps to the customer's smartphone, giving them access to locations and turn-by-turn directions even when phone signal quality is poor. Many GPS-enabled apps do not do this.<br> <br> <br> Because GogoLink navigation will become available after Spark goes on sale, the first Spark models sold will require a simple update at the dealer to accommodate the app. GogoLink pricing will be announced later. <br> <br> MyLink is standard on 1LT and 2LT versions of the Spark, as well as the Sonic LTZ and upcoming Sonic RS model. MyLink is available on Sonic LS and LT models. On Spark and Sonic, MyLink operates by integrating the owner's compatible smartphone and stored media – via Bluetooth, plug-in outlet or USB – with the radio. This lets owners enjoy simple, safe and personalized connectivity while their smartphone is safely stowed. <br> <br> MyLink is simple to use: The owner selects from options projected onto the touch screen: Audio, Pictures & Movies, Telephone, Smartphone Link and Settings. Each menu selection takes the user though a list of easy-to-select functions. <br> <br> MyLink-equipped Spark and Sonic models will launch with two apps: Pandora internet radio and Stitcher Smart Radio. When owners with these services connect their compatible smartphones via Bluetooth or by plugging in, they can access these and other functions: <br> <br> - Personal playlists of stored music<br> - Hands-free calling with Bluetooth-enabled voice activation from the customer's smartphone when the steering wheel button is depressed. (Visit for a list of compatible smartphones)<br> - Ability to project video via USB while the vehicle is parked<br> - Ability to project a photo album in "slideshow" mode via USB while the vehicle is parked, with the last music selection playing in the background. Once the vehicle is moving, a single photo is viewable.<br> <br> <br> A four-passenger, five-door hatchback, the 2013 Chevrolet Spark goes on sale this summer, the smallest entry in the Chevrolet passenger car lineup. Though compact, Spark offers more passenger and cargo room than other mini cars such as the Fiat 500, Smartfortwo and the Scion iQ. Equipped with the 1.2L four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission, Spark is expected to offer very competitive fuel economy. <br> <br> In addition to MyLink, Spark is equipped with 10 standard air bags, standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control, and is the only car in its segment with a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and the safety and security of OnStar. <br> <br> The performance-oriented 2013 Sonic RS will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. A five-door hatch, it's the only model in its segment to offer a turbocharged engine – a 138-horsepower (103 kW) Ecotec 1.4L. Other performance attributes include a sport-tuned suspension and unique exterior and interior treatments. All other Sonic models are on sale. <br> <br> Chevrolet MyLink functionality varies by model. MyLink on Sonic and Spark RS does not include integrated voice recognition or Gracenotes capability.
