If you buy the lockpick from coastaletech DOT com and you add a bluetooth kit it will work through the factory speakers.

OK. First you need the lockpick that unlocks onstar and then you need a device like the motorola ihf-1000. The lockpick has the power feeds and the speaker feeds for the motorola to interface directly with onstar. You connect the wires(+, -, speaker) sync with your phone and you are done. Shouldnt take more than an hour. Check out the coastal website they have quite a few videos on there. If you want to just do bluetooth you would have to find power and ground and use the little speaker that comes with the bluetooth kit. Hope I answered a few questions.

I bought a Motorola HF820 wireless bluetooth car kit from web site Digital Outlet for $31.99. I found it a bit clumbersome to use. Have to turn it on and keep it charged up. Also have to turn A/C and radio down when a call comes in or you make one. But it a cheaper method and would probably work very well for some one who is in their car most of the time. Wife's Infiniti has it built in and it works very well.

I have been trying to figure out a way to integrate Bluetooth as well but the problem is that the Onstar microphone set up stinks. The quality of sound on the people you call will be affected and you would get better results with a good quality Bluetooth Speaker unit. I am extremely picky with my Bluetooth quality and just found an awesome all in one unit by an Australian company called Blue Ant. I have been using it for over two weeks and so far I love it. I have not had anyone mention a word about my voice quality. Price is around a hundred bucks. It's a very simple....and affordable option.

The Blue Ant device attaches to your visor with a magnetic clip and has a pop out microphone on one side of it. When you pop the mic out, it automatically turns on the device and it searches for a Bluetooth signal. Once it syncs you will see it on your phone and from that point on any incoming or outgoing calls connect through the device with a nice quality speaker and great quality mic. As with any Bluetooth technology it is not always 100% perfect but it seems to be the best compromise from any device I've used. It comes with both a car charger and a home charger. The cool thing is I have not had to recharge it and I've used it a lot so far. For just under a hundred bucks it really is the best and easiest Bluetooth option I could find.
