How to Reset GMC IntelliLink


When you purchase a new GMC vehicle from Virden Mainline Motors, your Virden driving experience will be greatly enhanced by GMC IntelliLink – an innovative connectivity suite that allows for compatibility with your smartphone so you can make phone calls, stream your favourite music or podcasts, and more while you’re on the road. In the rare case that you start running into issues with your IntelliLink system, you may need to know how to reset GMC IntelliLink. Virden Mainline Motors provides step-by-step instructions in our guide down below.

What Is IntelliLink?

First, let’s look a little further into what the IntelliLink system is capable of. This intuitive connectivity suite was first integrated into the 2012 Terrain SUV, and has since remained a staple in all GMC models as it allows Birtle drivers to safely make phone calls, stream music, and more, all hands-free. How does it work? IntelliLink can connect to compatible Apple or Android smartphones via your in-vehicle touchscreen, allowing you to access your favourite apps and features on the go.
