    No. There's no way to utilize the onstar speaker/mic with your standard phone, not over bluetooth, not over anything. You can't use it without a subscription, and you can't tie it into anything except Verizon.

    Once again, this is a Car PC forum. You might have better luck checking out either a Tahoe forum or something like Howard Forums. Not that you'll get a better answer than 'NO', but just giving a heads up.

    Technically, there's a way to do a Bluetooth Headset Hack.
    He'd have to plug a BT headset to the OnStar's amp (and mic).
    Keep in mind not to cut too many original wires so that you could use OnStar as it's supposed to be used in the future.

    Examples:
    Hack #1
    Hack #2
    For Sale: Carputer (CarPC) & RCA Y-Adapter
    Newsflash: Take a look at my unsold stuff above, thanks!
    Up Next: Make an OBD to Serial cable & Redo the "MMI buttons"

    first of all, thank you to the people that tried answering my thread. 2nd, why is it that people who have no freakin clue even respond.
    Let me make it clear what i am wanting to do.

    It is possible, as many of you know......to use the onstar gps feature with your own pc/ laptop/ carputer. etc. with a fairly simple hack/ mod.

    I want to use the MIC/ SPEAKER for my own phone, by attaching/ soldering a bluetooth adapter to the onstar's phone unit. I simply would like to use the equipment in the car that happened to be linked to onstar.

    With the hacks I showed you above, you could do just that.
    All you need is a $30 BT HS, OnStar's schematics, soldering skills, and time.

    Good luck.

    Relax man, that's what forums are all about, learning from others. It's good that jahntassa participated in this form, cause he now knows it can be done...

    I think Jahntassa was going along the lines of not hacking, about keeping it the same stock stuff... You can connect just about anything to anything else by choppin it up and attaching something else to it.

    It's ok. That's why we're here. You have no clue either, why else would you be asking?
