No. and welcome to the forum, neighbor!

I say no because bluetooth is fully functional in my retrofit previously discussed on this thread.

The "NEW" modules available from Sellers Auto Sport have dried up (understandably, Pontiac is no more) and the few verified-compatible part number onstar boxes are very rare these days and when they do show up on ebay, they usually command a high price.

What has ended is what some believe is Onstar being able to mate a retrofit bluetooth-enabled onstar VCIM box to a 2009.1 car and have all the onstar features and functionality retained.

Onstar is different than bluetooth.

Kooks LT's, SOLO HFC & Mach Unbalanced with J-pipes, SLP Tips.
Livernois tune, VCM, FE3's, full Holden blue gauges conversion, iphone on display. Daily Driver FTW
The ZEPCOM G8 was SOLO's test mule

Bought 3/30/2009, retired 7/18/2017 at 136k miles, still strong. Been a great ride, she will be missed!
