  1. Depends how much you drive if you’re mostly using Spotify. I use pandora and the 1 gb wasn’t ever enough. I normally hit that in a few days if i was driving local. I have the unlimited plan now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Move the relay that powers the high beams over to the low beams. Test. Sounds like a relay went out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yes you need to hold down the lock button to fold the mirrors in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I agree as well lol. Love it. You can hear a slight change in tone in v4 mode but it’s very minimal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I can’t say much for the voice command. I just don’t use it and prob never will. The unit has favorites button so it’s 2 button pushes to call the few people I ever need to call and music wise I just shuffle all the time and skip whatever I’m not in the mood for. As far as pairing I suppose you mean after the initial pairing when starting the vehicle. It’s not instant but I would say it’s faster than the factory system. Have i timed that? No. Alpine has their boot up screen just like the factory and it seems to be connected when the system pops up. For thefactory system it seems to sometimes take it a few seconds after the boot up to connect again. As far as functionality wise goes I’ve put that radio in to 3 separate vehicles that were all technologically dated. So I can’t say that I did or didn’t lose anything. However alpine claims that you lose nothing but the 5 USB ports. If you get the bose add on module they’ll replace the 3 USB port with a single usb port. You’ll also lose the rear cam lines that move. my biggest complaint with it lol. It gives you standard lines with the choice of removing them if you’d like. To my knowledge those are the only two loss in functionality that you lose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the alpine 7” equivalent. Brain wise it’s the same radio. I can’t say anything bad about it. Currently have the x110 sra on layaway right now. Maps have always taken me exactly where I need to be and I travel all over the nation for work. Out of the box it won’t have video in motion. Add a pac TR7 inline and it will If you go with the alpine you’ll need the nose add on otherwise it won’t function correctly. I can’t speak for the mvi. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Alright so you're pushing 750watts to a MAX 600 watt sub? You need to know the RMS of a sub and match that up to your amp. Otherwise you're just over powering it right now. So assuming they are SVC there's no way to keep 4 ohms. It will be forced to go down to 2 ohms. Now you said the amp does 1500 at 2 ohms. The best solution is to find an amp that will put out the right wattage at 2 ohms. Otherwise you're going to blow them pretty fast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. As far as the wifi goes. I'm outside my trial time for the onstar and just have the basic plan that they give for free for the next 5 years. I pay 20$ a month for unlimited wifi access supplied by ATT. it's nice to have it bc I have a regional cell service provider and have poor services in some of the areas thta I go. Soon I'll be changing providers. But that's all I use onstar for. That and the phone app. It's also on the Apple Watch as well. Congrats on your new truck!
  9. Not enough information here to make a fair assessment. You don't want the amp to run at 2ohms. Why? If the sub is already being pushed the full 750 for one, the added sub would need another 750 watts additional in order to not underpower both subs. Underpowering can fry a sub just much as overpowering. The question is are you wanting just to run at 4 ohms for the SQ? If so you need to buy an amp that will run 1500watts at 4ohms. Or are you just trying to match the power the subs need? In thta case you would need to wire down to 2 ohms. But of course this all revolves around is your subwoofer a dual voice coil (DVC) or is it a single voice coil (SVC)
  10. It just helps you slow down. You can turn it off by holding the trailer haul button down I believe for I think 7 seconds. But you have to do it every time you turn the vehicle on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Truck started leaking couple weeks back. Finally brought it into my body shop place. Apparently the glue on the back glass came unglued and formed a nice lil channel for water to get into the cab. Body shop had replaced the back glass so they're fixing it for me and sending it to get the headliner cleaned Also installed the pro clip phone holder [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I love my WT. I haven't noticed any scratches or such and have had them on for the past 8 months
  13. Depends on your radio if you want video in motion. I think the kenwoods all you need to do is fround the parking brake wire. Alpine you have to use a module like the PAC TR-7. Pioneers are kinda hit and miss. I believe the older units you can ground out but the newer ones require a module. I've been out of the installation world for a couple years so I can't say 100% for pioneers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'll answer what I can... there's a lot of questions up there lol. As far as wiring your speakers in the past while using 9conductor ive wired it Radios harness to the amp Amp to the metra harness (or whatever harness you're using for the factory side) It's twice as much wire but a lot cleaner. Utilizes the factory wiring. Now if you're wanting the absolute best performance out your speakers you would run all new wires. As far as cutting the factory harness on the speakers. That's totally up to you. In resistance views, the less connections made the better. I myself cut mine and go straight to the speaker. Unless you plan on putting the factory speakers back in just save the few bucks and cut em. Speakers. The soundstage is really for the driver. It's your truck. Typically you would want components in the front coax in the back. As for your remote turn on wire I tapped into the ignition wire at the BCM so that when the vehicle is in accessory it won't turn the amps on. You shouldn't need any rca splitters or wire converters if you're doing everything aftermarket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
