I just purchased mine on April 14th. All of my electronics / Siri integration seems to be working as intended.

Initially, I had Siri turned off on my iPhone (6s) for the past few months (because it would suddenly respond when I was talking on the landline in my office). During the new vehicle demo by my sales consultant, I turned it on and tried it in the vehicle and it didn't respond to my commands via the MyLink. Once I got home later that evening, I then shut off my phone and restarted it and it has worked perfectly, since. It responds almost immediately when I say "hey, Siri" and am able to send texts and dial phone numbers via voice commands.

Specifically, how is your phone / MyLink responding / not doing what it should?

This sounds QUITE bizarre!!! I'm assuming you've spoken with OnStar about this.

Here is a link for the Generation 9 OnStar user manual (this is the most recent guide for the 2018 Equinox).

Check beginning on page 16:
https://www.onstarfulfillment.com/pd...en9_Manual.pdf

One CANNOT store a "name tag" for the phone system that begins with a (phone)number. It MUST be a name.

Also check this OnStar page for "Hands-Free Calling doesn’t respond"
https://www.onstar.com/us/en/help-su...esponding.html

Please keep us posted.

I spoke with an OnStar rep On Friday inquiring whether the Gen 9 manual is the most recent one and was told "yes" (although she initially said "10" was the newest but I told her the Genia 10 manual isn't on the website).

I hope your issue is resolved quickly. Please update us regarding any progress / outcome.

I pressed the "Phone" button yesterday morning just to try it out and when I said "virtual advisor" I got "traffic" (or it might've been "weather", I don't recall). I then hung up and pressed the "Phone" button again and said "store" and it gave me "weather" (or it might've been "traffic", I don't recall).

I called OnStar when I got to the office and they said I should call them from my cellphone when I'm in my car and ask for their "Customer Tier"(?) dept. so they can potentially troubleshoot this with me.

Not sure weather this is expected from the "new & revised" OnStar services but I guess I'll find out.

In the meantime, it appears the Gen. 10 OnStar / 2018 Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment manual is only available when you buy a new 2018 vehicle as it's not available in any format directly from OnStar - per the customer service agent.

Thanks ,sounds like yours is doing the same . I received no onstar information at all .I also called Chevrolet yesterday to complain about it being out of service for 18 days .
I also pointed out ,that in the 2018 Equinox owners manual ,on page 404 ,it states to make a call say the nametag or number . How can you say a nametag when you cant store one ?
They are supposed to call me back in 24-48 hours . I will update when I get one .Thanks again for trying
