  1. Big thanks to Phil (pgamboa) as I purchased the splice-in pigtail version of his harness back in December. Tuesday I finally received the 2018 module which had been on backorder and got everything installed that night in my 2016 Silverado. Everything works as it should as phone position is no longer an issue as it had been previously with my Samsung and it charges my phone faster than the 2016-17 module did. Last night I noticed it charges my wife's Samsung that has an Otterbox case even though it doesn't sit flush on the mat. I highly recommend this upgrade and Phil to everyone with a 2016 or 2017 with the wireless charging option.
  2. PM pgamboa here on the forum as he is Phil. Order the module from the dealer or online from gmpartsdirect.com, nationalgmparts.com, etc.

  4. If you haven't contacted Chris (whiteautoandmedia.com) of WAMS, Anthony Brush of MVI (www.gm-navigation.com) can set you up as well as they are a vendor on here. There is certain programming that Chris does for MVI. Chris is very knowledgeable but WAMS hours are only over the weekend and MVI is open during the week. I've been pleased with WAMS as they are currently working on something for me. I've also purchased a few things from MVI and have been very pleased with their knowledge and customer service. You can't go wrong with either.
  5. Check out GM's full floor liners. I love mine over either as I've had both WeatherTech and Husky in previous vehicles. My only complaint is the floor below the throttle pedal is left exposed thanks to those unintended accelerating cars back in the day. If it's strictly between those 2, I'd go Husky as the last 2 WeatherTechs I had curled badly as mentioned above.
  6. You have those "extra options" because you have the All Terrain Package, very nice pickups. On yours, have you pulled the 2 DRL fuses in the fuse box in the engine compartment? That is all I had to do on my 2010 I had.
  7. On the K2 trucks, it's BCM controlled. Chris White of WAMS offers custom BCM programming. I've been looking into sending my BCM to him but want to do a couple things first. Check out their website, http://whiteautoandmedia.com/
  8. Depending on your phone, what I've done would display your phone on the screens but you'd still have to control everything on your phone and may need additional parts, i.e. MHL adapter etc. I've been considering getting a Fire Stick or something to use with my HDMI input linked to my Wi-Fi and see if it would work seamlessly. I would like to see those setups in person. I've seen video of the android setup that Performance Diesel is preordering and definitely want it!!! Based on what you're trying to do, I didn't take any pictures as I thought this would be more beneficial to what you're trying to do as I wrapped my harness back up and you can see anything beneficial. From the 12-pin connector for the rear console controls/inputs, these are the circuits I spliced into: Pin #4 - White Wire - Right Aux Audio Pin #5 - Yellow Wire - Left Aux Audio Pin #6 - Yellow Wire - Aux Video Pin #11 - Brown Wire - Aux Audio Common Pin #12 - Bare Wire - Aux Video Common I spliced in accordingly for my HDMI input. I assume you would need a new connector for the 2017 input, but you may be able to re-pin your harness accordingly and get it working, hopefully. I'm not sure if both the USB inputs would be operation or only just one if you went that route though. I can't find any wiring info for the 2017+ controls through my resources but someone who works for GM may be able to get you some info. I would assume MVI would be able to find this info if you wanted to reach out to them. There is also another vendor on here, pgamboa (Phil Gamboa) who I'm following as he is very knowledgeable and has done numerous things to his 2016 LT. He may also be able to dig up some information on this. Hopefully this helps you and if you get it working, definitely let me/us know.
  9. Would White Auto and Media Services (www.whiteautoandmedia.com) be able to do it? They show to offer custom BCM programming.
  10. I can get some pictures taken as that is one thing I forgot to take pictures of. The screen itself is wired to the disc drive along with the inputs from the rear of the center console. There is also a blue USB type cable that connects the overhead screen, the disc drive, the dash screen and the HMI if I remember correctly. I don't know of other options out there however the HDMI input that I used from MVI is spliced into the RCA inputs that is on the back of the console so it inputs to the disc drive. Since the screen is 720p, you won't have true HD resolution but since they are only 8" and 9.2", it doesn't matter IMO. What I've used the input so far for, everything has looked great. As of 2017, GM removed both the SD card input and the RCA input and now there is a factory HDMI input and 2 USB inputs on the back of the console. If you've thought about installing the 2017 parts and harness, I don't recommend it as there are more changes than just those for the rest of the truck but someone else may have more input on that. Once again, you don't get true HD resolution but it gives you the input so you can add modern devices/gaming consoles easier. There is also an area that I tapped into for the power supply on the USB port on the input from MVI which is at the connector for the console harness where it connects to the dash harness. If you purchase the HDMI input from MVI, they will have the wires labeled on where to splice into at or at the very least come with instructions on where to splice. I may be able to take the console apart later today and get you pictures, at least sometime this weekend.
  11. Chris, Me too, with the trouble that mine has caused you guys for my 2016 diesel, you could have switched a 2016 Denali Diesel cluster to the Chevy Blue?
  12. My pickup came with Factory Navigation with Android Auto/Apple Car Play so I did not purchase that from them. However, I have purchased other stuff from them, their Bluray/DVD in-dash kit with their custom HMI programming, parts for the OEM RSE system (I varied from their RSE kit in order to add some additional things), HDMI Input and their 3rd brake lamp camera. Anthony and John are great guys and know their stuff. Their customer service is top notch. Let them know what you want and they'll set you up with what you need. Anthony's cell number is on their YouTube videos as that is the best way to contact them. They are also a vendor on here. I've had the opportunity to swing by their shop in the Denver area while I was passing through a couple times and would recommend them to anyone.
  13. If you wanted, you can upgrade your HMI to Apple Car Play/Android Auto capable. MVI can also do that for you.
  14. Yes you can upgrade to Navigation. Contact MVI (vendor on here), Anthony can get you hooked up. Their website is www.gm-navigation.com. I've added some of their other products. I highly recommend them.
