  1. Do you have the Android Auto app installed? If so, do you have a 2016? Initially, they were shipped without the ability to connect to Android. There was a dealer update that added the functionality. You would need to get the update from your dealer. If you’re still under the 3/36, it should be free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'm with the majority here... It's a truck. SE or not. That said, I'm waiting for the powertrain warranty to expire on mine before I get anywhere near a tune or anything that touches software or hardware that's difficult to replace.. If it isn't easily reversible (with an thought to "can I do this on the side of the road before it's towed to the dealer...") I don't do it for now. I'm very warranty conscious, but others aren't. If you've got the cash to cover something not being covered, I don't see what the problem would be.
  3. I’m in Wisconsin and have the stock Goodyear’s. When there’s fresh snow on the road, I usually turn on auto. Nothing in the bed or anything like that, but I live in the boonies and have to get up to 45 pretty quickly. There’s a blind hill next to my road, so I can’t just take my time getting up to speed. Once I’m up to speed, I usually turn it off. If there’s 6in or more, I may turn on 4-hi only because I’m not likely to hit dry pavement. This is my first RWD/4x4. I’ve had FWD up until now. I absolutely love this truck. Gets around great. I’m sure the G80 helps a little bit when it’s in 2wd too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The only steering wheel controls that are supposed to work with CarPlay are on the back of the wheel. Volume and back/next. That’s how it is in my 16 with CarPlay from the factory. You can still go into the menu in the DIC and choose music, but that’s not technically going through CarPlay, I didn’t think. As an aside, when I have CarPlay going, the back/next buttons are VERY delayed. Hit next to skip a song. Wait a little bit... if you don’t get impatient like me, it eventually changes. Otherwise you end up hitting it again and it switches songs twice, in the same interval. So change it, wait 5 secs, hit the button again. Wait 5 more secs, it finally changes, then 5 secs later, the second skip goes through on a song you wanted to listen to. Volume doesn’t seem to be affected. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Looks like they're getting rear air vents! Even with the jump seat.
  6. I’ve not used aftermarket LEDs, but with HIDs, the relay kit would be the next step. Basically, all they do is hook your lights directly to the battery and use the original harness for a signal to turn them on. That should minimize your problem, I would think. That said, I wonder how big of a voltage drop we’re talking about. And if it’s happening at the headlight harness, is it happening at the battery too? If it is, the harness may not help. Beyond the slower start with the old battery, did you notice any other symptoms? I would guess if you were running halogens, they would at least dim or something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hey, glad that worked. Probably something I would do in the summer, but I think I’d probably drop it off for the dealer to fix with the weather being this cold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. You’re correct. I05 does not have navigation. i06 does. You may also want to pay attention to the age. The 16 model added some speed, and the ability to use CarPlay. I don’t know the specifics, but you may have more research to do. Maybe make sure you can drop it in your truck too. I thought these were tied to your vin somehow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I use an app called Road Trip. Sounds pretty similar to Fuelly. I keep everything for the truck in there. Fuel, oil, tires, etc. as far as I know, it’s only for iPhone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It is often true that a service advisor is a commissioned position. Depends on the dealership. As for the brake fluid, I would follow the service schedule in the manual. It's called for every 5 years.
  12. If that’s your build sheet and window sticker, it sounds like something is wrong. I06 is most definitely what you’re looking for if you want nav without CarPlay or onstar being required. Is it possible the nav icon is on a second page of apps, by chance? If you have I06, I’d be talking to my dealer right away. The RPO is the same for a high country as an LT. if it has i06, it should have navigation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I turned both systems off and was doing 2wd and 4wd donuts without trouble. I wasn’t really paying attention to the speedo, though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have a 16 in Wisconsin, and it has been tough to turn the past few days. Even seems harder to get in gear. Been a while since it’s been this cold without the TV talking about vortexes and such. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I think weathertech offers wheel liners, if you’re really wanting the plastic ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
