    Default Bluetooth pass through for 2013 MyLink - 2014 MyLink has this

    In the past there have been no software updates for new features available to later model years. Will the same policy apply for the 2013 Volts? Will the new bluetooth pass through that was removed from the 2013 MyLink and now added back in for 2014 be available via a software/firmware update? Is the hardware NOT compatible reason going to be used again? Isn't an upgradeable MyLink system a feature that was sold to us?

    2014 Volts with MyLink HAVE Bluetooth pass through enabled in when holding down the voice command button on the steering wheel for 2 seconds.

    As far as we know, no upgrade will be done on any Volts.
    If for some reason GM discovers a bug in the system, then they will issue a patch for that bug like the one concerning the blutooth connection from a cel phone that would empty the 12v battery once the car was shut off.
    Others have had a patch for absent heating in cold weather on 2012 models. I've had this problem but was not aware of the patch. I will have to get this one.
    Still old GM habbits die hard.
    If other companys start updating cars over the air, GM will have no choice but follow.

    Ford sends out infotainment upgrades via USB drive or over the Internet to be loaded on a customer's USB drive. Tesla does them over the air via cellular or, now, WiFi.

    Dear every other carmaker: This isn't rocket science.
