Answers to Most Common Questions about IntelliLink in Your Verano


The IntelliLink system in your Buick Verano puts you in control of infotainment, your smartphone functions, and more. While the system is very straightforward to use and gets great ratings, it is normal to have at least a few questions regarding it. Whether you are just getting started with IntelliLink or want to work out the finer details of how it works, the following information can help you.

What Is Included in IntelliLink?

If you are completely new to Buick IntelliLink on your Verano, then you may be wondering what features it includes. The system gives you access to all the information and entertainment you could possibly want. Depending on how you configure your Verano, your IntelliLink system will play music from the AM/FM radio, SiriusXM radio, CD player, USB inputs, and auxiliary audio inputs. You control everything through a high-resolution touchscreen that is in full color. You also get access to Bluetooth for hands-free phone capabilities and audio streaming, enhanced voice recognition, and your self-created radio stations on Stitcher and Pandora.

What Do I Need to Use SiriusXM Radio?

There are a few common questions regarding playing SiriusXM Satellite Radio on your Verano’s IntelliLink system. You will not need to connect your smartphone to the system to use this feature. But it still is a good idea to take advantage of other IntelliLink features. You do, however, need a subscription to use SiriusXM Satellite Radio. This subscription is highly affordable, and you should get a free trial with your new Buick Verano.

How Many Phones Can Connect?

With a family-friendly vehicle like the Buick Verano, there are likely to be multiple drivers. Because of this, most people want to know whether you can pair multiple devices to IntelliLink. Not only can you pair multiple devices, you can actually pair as many as 10. This can include your smartphone as well as any other device with Bluetooth, such as a different cell phone or your iPod Touch.

Is Internet Radio Free?

Since Pandora and Stitcher are part of the IntelliLink experience on your Buick Verano, you may wonder whether you have to pay for these. The good news is that using Pandora is completely free. However, you will have to pay for data, and you can pay if you want to get rid of ads.
