Crux BTS-GM1X Bluetooth Interface

James from Berea, KY on 9/10/2019

2009 GMC Sierra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have owned this for a couple of months now and wanted to give it a fair chance. When it works, it is great. The sound is great and streams perfectly. But it won't connect a lot of the time automatically and I have to reconnect it manually. Then there are times when it will just not connect at all, probably over half of the time. Overall a great thought out product, but in my opinion it still needs some work to get to that great performing product I had hoped for.

Pros: Sound is really good

Cons: reconnecting to device is very sporatic

Easy to install but recently it has quit connecting to my phone. Also when it does connect if I don't set my phone to forget device it will automatically connect and drain my battery. When it does work it is awesome though and was an easy way for me to get bluetooth in my truck

Pros: Easy to install, sounds good

Cons: Quit connecting to my phone

Crux BTS-GM1X Bluetooth Interface

Crutchfield customer from Nashville, TN on 8/26/2019

2012 Buick Enclave

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was a little worried when, for my 2012 Buick Enclave, it stated the XM receiver was behind the rear left quarter panel trim. I thought I would need to figure out how to remove the whole panel without breaking a clip or something else crucial to getting it re-installed. I psyched myself up to get this done, when to my surprise, I was able to access the XM receiver through the tire jack compartment. It was a snug fit but by removing the tire jack, I had enough room to disconnect the XM 16 pin cable, connect the adapter cable and get it all connected back together. The whole process took about 20 minutes and was easy enough that I would recommend this to anyone interested. I've included some pictures that will hopefully be of assistance for someone. I've only had it installed for less than an hour, but the usage directions were clear and my system responded accordingly (Seek Down to cycle between XM and bluelogic). Time will tell about the reliability but, for now, I am pleased have bluetooth in my vehicle without any visible wires.

Pros: Easy Install, Works as expected

Cons:

Great Bluetooth device to stream music and gps thru factory car radio

Crutchfield customer from Warrenville, IL on 5/9/2019

2009 Buick Lucerne

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This device does EXACTLY what it says it will. I now have the ability to stream from my iPhone with music, podcasts and GPS map directions ...all thru my car audio system using my XM radio channel. It has worked perfectly since setting it up, It was very easy to install. Is it a PERFECT product? No, two things could be improved....it automatically causes my iPhone to start streaming music as soon as I get into my car, I don't know if that is a peculiarity of the product or maybe my user error...don't know, and it would be nice to have the RDS information or song track information display on the radio screen, it's blank while using the device. overall, I love the product. It made my older car perform like a newer Bluetooth equipped car....and Crutchfield was awesome to deal with...it was my first order from them.....they have earned future business from me....

Pros: Excellent reliable Bluetooth connection

Cons: Streams music as soon as I enter the, would prefer that it wait until accessed.

Another strange experience with a Crux product (see other review). I ended up returning it, with the well-established awesome Crutchfield customer service doing their thing.

Pros: -Super easy install -OK sound quality -Plays well with GM factory bluetooth phone service

Cons: -Randomly decides to stop working -Cant connect sometimes (after using remote start, for one example) -Once it doesn't connect you are out of luck unless the car sits completely off for at least 10 minutes -Awkward integration with XM radio -Cant be sure, but I think it may have fried the digital clock on my radio, which I now am unable to set. -Beeps between songs, which I could not figure how to turn off

Can't install to all vehicles listed in the compatibility list

Tom from St. Louis, MO on 11/11/2018

2012 GMC Yukon XL Denali

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Only rated 1 star because I couldn't hook it up to my vehicle to be able to review it better. This interface appeared to be just what I was looking for my 2012 Yukon Denali. It would've been an easy install but my Denali had the Premium Navigation head unit that has the XM receiver built-in and not separate, so I was unable to hook it up between the two. I had to RMA return it to Crutchfield. If you own a 2012-2013 Yukon, Tahoe, or Suburban, check behind the glovebox to make sure you have the seperate XM receiver before ordering this! If you don't, IT WILL NOT WORK! All of the installation manuals state that the XM receiver is located behind the glovebox on these models, but don't mention that it depends on which factory radio your vehicle has. I even contacted Crutchfield's tech support and they said that if you have factory XM, it should be behind the glovebox. Nowhere is it mentioned that it may not work on some models with the Premium Nav radio (has the "i" button on the bottom right).

Crux BTS-GM1X Bluetooth Interface

Crutchfield customer from Auburn, IN on 8/12/2018

2012 Chevrolet Traverse

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

When it works it's awesome and much more reliable connection than the USB cable. It works at the same time as the Bluetooth calling feature from the factory which is nice that you don't lose that feature. Install was a breeze in my Traverse. Pulled the cover where the jack is stored and the satellite radio unit was easily accessible. One note, there are a few units tucked in the same area so it was a bit of trial and error to find the right one. In my car it was the farthest from the opening. Now for the bad...Most times it automatically connects to my phone, but frequently I have to go into the Bluetooth settings to get it to connect. Several times it would not connect and I had to delete the connection and set it up again. There has also been a couple of times it said it was paired to my phone but my phone said disconnected and it would not connect. Only after turning off the car (and letting it sit for a few minutes) would it reset and start to work again. I don't have the satellite radio activated in my car so I haven't put a lot of effort to get it to work, but when I have tried to tune to satellite it hasn't worked, even the preview channel. Overall it works great just a few irritating issues to deal with from time to time.

This is a great product...WHEN IT WORKS! Two out of three times when i start my car it works great! The other times it will not connect. When I use my auto-starter it will not connect. Also Installation was very simple. I had a little trouble getting to the connector but that's not the products fault. I'm going to keep trying to figure out a solution to the non connectivity issue. Overall...Fantastic product.

Pros: Simple to install, very convenient, don't have to upgrade head unit

Cons: doesn't connect every time, that's it

Do not buy

Joshua from Machesney Park, IL on 4/16/2018

2010 GMC Acadia

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works when it wants to. I have a 2010 GMC Acadia. Installation was a pain. The instructions sent with it told me to go through the glovebox. The connection is actually by the Jack in the left rear compartment. Does not work with the remote start. Once you use the remote start you have to unplug and replug the unit. WILL kill your car battery!!! The unit and Bluetooth does not shut off with the SUV. This is a problem for 2 reasons. One, when you want to listen to something on your phone and are in range of your vehicle your phone will think it is still connected to your vehicle and won't play through the phone speakers. Two, if your phone stays connected after the vehicle is off it kills your car battery. I woke up today and my SUV wouldn't start. Before I went out to my garage this morning I had tried to play music on my phone and noticed that I was still connected to my SUV from the night before. (my bedroom shares a wall with my garage). Battery checked good and charged back up without issues, just made me late for work.

Unbelievably easy to install! Great to have map voice and streaming tunes. 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 I'd give it a 5* IF I could figure out how to stop it from linking with my phone when I walk by. Music starts playing. Second issue is that I don't get BT voice connection for phone calls. It does mute music when a call comes in.

Awesome add-on, (potential) tricky install

Guest from Chicago, IL on 3/26/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works perfectly on my 2010 Traverse. Didn't need to remove the factory radio, but hardest part for me was getting to the XM tuner connector becaue of its location in my truck. Once I got that loose, it was plug and play. Android phone is also paired with the native bluetooth system for hands-free calling. No issues receiving or making calls while streaming. Streaming stops and the hands-free system takes over. When the call is over, the streaming continues. I'm very happy with this product.

Pros: Easiest way to add streaming with no clutter on the dash, i.e. aux cables...

Cons: XM tuner location on Traverse made this install more difficult than it could have been.

This was the answer to getting rid of the aux cable connected to my phone. Works great, although, when I use the keyless start from in the house, I notice it will not pair up. If I were to just start the truck, it works every time. If you want to get rid of cables, this is what you need. It took me all of about 10 minutes to connect, and pair. what more could you ask for?

Pros: Works great. Best purchase.

Cons: Non so far, other than it not connecting when I use my keyless remote start.

Finally Wireless Streaming

William from Arlington, TN on 2/16/2018

2009 GMC Yukon XL Denali

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Performed exactly as advertised saving having to purchase an aftermarket stereo. A near factory-like integration...couldn't be happier. If you are like me, my phone is the center of everything. Navigation and music is done completely through the phone and the OEM radio is simply a means to get the sound to the speakers. Plugging and unplugging the AUX cable was 1)annoying and 2)cluttered; to the point I was close to purchasing a new radio just to get rid of the wires. Having factory BOSE and rear entertainment; the cheapest stereo would still require a significant investment in add-ons to retain all functionality. Crux BTS-GM1X Bluetooth® Interface was the perfect solution. A quick and easy install has modernized the OEM radio with Bluetooth streaming. No wires, no bluetooth adapters to charge.

Pros: Factory integration Putting unused XM to good use A2DP for nearly wired sound quality Easy install

Cons: Older Bluetooth 2.0; but no effect on sound quality.

Works really well. Only things I don't like is that it defaults to bluetooth mode when car is restarted even if the car was shut off in XM mode. Also doesn't seem to like remote startin of vehicle as a few times it wouldn't work at all until the key was cycled off then back on. Overall thought the performance is good.

Pros: Excellent bluetooth quality

Cons: Doesn't like remote starts and defaults to bluetooth mode instead of XM mode when car is shut off then restarted.

For my GMC Acadia, it's actually pretty smart. My phone (Android) recognizes the Bluetooth as headphone only with no mic. So, it uses the mic on the phone.... Say if you need to use voice commands on your phone or using Siri. If you currently have Bluetooth phone capability on your car, it reverts to the phone on your car. Meaning, your phone connects to BOTH Bluetooth devices simultaneously. The only thing that I don't like so far, is that if you have multiple devices, there's no way to switch when both phones are in the car. You have to disconnect from the phone that it's currently connected to. FYI, in an Acadia, the xm module is in the rear panel where the tire jack is located. Not the easiest install, and the instructions and master instructions did not help. I had to look through forums to find out where the module was. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this.

Note: Crux BeeLine series BTS-GM1X installs at the factory XM satellite radio tuner location; there is no need to remove your vehicle's factory radio. Your vehicle's factory XM satellite radio tuner will be retained and continue to fully function properly.

Bluetooth Music Streaming: Thanks to built-in Bluetooth 2.0 with support for A2DP, you are able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps (using SBC codec only) from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or portable audio player to the Crux BTS-GM1X and your vehicle's factory radio. There is no music control or song/artist information on the factory radio; this will still need to be done from your Bluetooth source device. You can also use Bluetooth to hear navigation voice prompts (factory radio and adapter must be in Bluetooth mode). The adapter will only pair to one device at a time.

Notes: The Crux BeeLine series adapter does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone communication. However, Bluetooth audio streaming will pause when a call is received on your phone and then resume when you hang-up.

Magnetic Vent Mount: The Crux BTS-GM1X comes with a magnetic vent mount for your smartphone. The mount works with most air vent configurations found in today's vehicle's - including horizontal, vertical, and round air vents. The vent mount includes a magnetic device cradle and comes with a self-adhesive magnetic plate which attaches to the outside of your smartphone or inside of your smartphone case. Once the magnetic plate is installed, simply hover your mobile device over the cradle and it will quickly snap into place and remain there. You can quickly remove it too. The mount's ball-and-socket mechanism allows you tilt your smartphone up or down, turn it left or right, and rotate it 360-degrees. You'll be able to mount your device in a vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) orientation.

USB Port: A Mini-B USB port is located inside the casing. This port is provided for uploading firmware updates to the adapter.

To keep my factory radio and add blue tooth [ F  Apr 08, 2018 ]
A
Looking for a cost effective means to stream music. It was important to keep the OEM factory/look and avoid AUX chords. I've tried Bluetooth adapters for the AUX jack, but still ran into situations where I'd have to keep them charged up. Ultimate plan was to create a seamless experience for my wife. Hopefully this integrated solution will accomplish this. [ William  Feb 07, 2018 ]

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up research on your specific vehicle model and see if this will work correctly. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
Can you use the existing mic from the Onstar system or are you required to use the one provided in the box?
[ spencer  Jan 22, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
The one I received did not include a mic in the box. This device is more to stream music, not to use it for phone calls.
[ John  Jan 24, 2018 ]
A
It uses the mic on your phone. It only acst as a blue tooth speaker system for your phone. Radio must be kept on on the assigned channel to work.
[ Steven  Jan 22, 2018 ]
A
For my GMC Acadia, it's actually pretty smart. My phone (Android) recognizes the Bluetooth as headphone only with no mic. So, it uses the mic on the phone.... Say if you need to use voice commands on your phone or using Siri. If you currently have Bluetooth phone capability on your car, it reverts to the phone on your car. Meaning, your phone connects to BOTH Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
[ ROY  Jan 22, 2018 ]
A
I know you can use the phone mic, but I have never used the onstar one. As far as I know they one and the same. I don't recall an extra mic in the box.
[ Kris  Jan 22, 2018 ]
A
This model does not come with a microphone in the box. Bluetooth functionality remains the same through your existing system and microphone.

Will I still be able to listen to xm radio too, or does the Bluetooth replace that?
[ Tyler  Dec 27, 2017 ]

A
You will still be able to listen to XM radio. You switch between Bluetooth and XM using the seek button.
[ David  Mar 12, 2018 ]
A
Press on the seek button on your radio until it beeps and it will switch between XM and Bluetooth.
[ Kris  Jan 22, 2018 ]

Your vehicle's factory XM satellite radio tuner will be retained and continue to fully function properly with the Crux BTS-GM1X Interface installed. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

Q
Do I need an active XM radio subscription for it to work? I have the XM tuner, but my XM service isn't active.
[ Supertech427  Dec 13, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
No it does not need to be active. You just need the option because the device plugs into your XM receiver not your factory radio.
[ John  Dec 15, 2017 ]
A
Your XM tuner does not need to have an actual subscription. The tuner must work however !! Your only adding this too the wiring portion of the system.
[ David  Dec 15, 2017 ]
Q
Does this unit work in conjunction with the factory Bluetooth or is it independent from the factory one? Will the steering wheel controls work with changing streamed music tracks?
[ Jeff  Nov 30, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you specific details on compatibility and/or installation.
