Help! I have a Pandora app icon on my entertainment system in my new 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT. It's worked perfeclly for the last month and now I'm getting this message: "connecting...waiting for coverage..." and it never connects. Any ideas or remedies?
mod edit: changing title for clarity
AGREED! I have been trying to understand this as well! we were listening to Pandora on our trip and all of the sudden it stopped working and said the network connection error. we thought it was just a bad signal. many vehicle restarts and conversations with onstar later and still no solution! they keep saying to use it through the cell phone but it makes no sense it was working! what is the app for if it doesn't work that way?
I have this exact same issue with Pandora. I just bought a pre-owned 2017 Silverado and was psyched to have Pandora built right into the entertainment system. The dealership gave me 3 free months of wifi which I verified works on ever other app, and my phone connects to it and shows a full signal. Pandora was working for about a week then would randomly lose signal and give the "no internet connection" error message even though the truck's wifi is working fine. I tried to remove and re-install the app and now it won't even re-install in the truck. Please advise
I am having the same issue on my 2015 Chevy Suburban. Pandora was working perfectly fine when I would connect my phone (iPhone 12 Pro Max). It just stopped working a couple days ago. Anyone know how to fix it?
I have the same issue in a 2018 GMC sierra. Was working fine until about 2 months ago. But I do notice that internet connectivity through Onstar LTE is very bad. Using my laptop connected to truck's wifi, I'm getting packet loss doing a simple ping to google.com.
I am having the same issue, app says signing in waiting for coverage. I tried logging out and logging back in. Taking the app off my chevy and putting it back on. But nothing works. My wifi is on and connected to my phone.

I've used the built-in Pandora app on two GM vehicles, one a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, and now on my 2019 Chevrolet Volt. Each of these vehicles have done this sporadically. Typically at least once every two weeks or so. When it happens Pandora's built-in app does NOT recover no matter what you do until the vehicle sits off completely for at least 15 minutes. I've had this happen even at times the 4G LTE for the vehicle is showing full bars even at vehicle startup. The Cruze had this issue as far back as 2018. I've had this happen on my Volt as recently as just this week. I can also verify when it refuses to work, I do still have WIFI coverage for the vehicle as I can use the Pandora app on my cellphone and still use my car's hotspot with no issue. So this is either a Pandora app issue on GM vehicles, or some kind of integration with the data stream that flakes out regularly. About 95% of the time this happens, it won't work as soon as the car is started and never recovers. I have had about 5% though where it'll be working fine, then suddenly stop playing a song and move to the "waiting for coverage" never to recover. It's especially annoying when I'm already driving and sometimes on an hour+ drive and it just refuses to work so I have to dig my phone out of my pocket and launch the app and stream from my phone instead. I hope this can get fixed and this information is helpful!
For the last year in my 2021 GMC Sierra, the Pandora app has worked flawlessly. It was working fine yesterday, however, this morning I received a message, "connecting...waiting for coverage" and the app never loaded during my hour commute to work. I do have GM's Hotspot service. Is there a fix for this issue?
Hi @alan21e! Thanks for posting to community.
Can you confirm the name of the GMC data plan that you are currently using in your Sierra? Thanks!
@alan21e Are you referring to the Connected Vehicle plan for $24.99?
To clarify, GMC requires specific data plans in order to stream content within the vehicle. For example, GMC Maps+, Amazon Alexa built-in and in-vehicle apps, like Fox Sports and Pandora.

Yes, but I purchase it at the annual price vs monthly price. My annual plan expires in May, and I will renew.
My plan includes the following:Available Wi-Fi® Hotspot
Thanks for clarifying, @alan21e.
I can remove the GM connection with your Pandora account from my end and have you run through the set-up to see if that will help.
If you'd like to try this, let me know.
