I have finally got around to finalizing the install of the OEM RSE system for my 2016 Silverado HD. This was the only option that I wanted that my pickup did not come with so I am extremely happy this is done and so is my son! I would like to give a BIG THANKS to Anthony and John at MVI (www.gm-navigation.com) as they are extremely knowledgeable and their customer service is top notch. I purchased MVI's in-dash Blu-ray and RSE kits along with the unlocked HMI module and added their HDMI input and third brake lamp camera with switch. The unlocked HMI is definitely worth the money over a Lockpick as you have full control while in motion and don’t have to worry about the Lockpick failing as I had 2 of 2 fail in my old 2010 Silverado. MVI supplied most of the parts though I did source a few parts from the dealer as I did vary a little from MVI's kit as I wanted the RSE controls in the center console which their current kit does not yet have but was told it is on their to-do list with many other projects. Their HDMI kit requires the RSE controls as you tap into those inputs. I removed one of the cigar lighter outlets in the front of the center console and mounted the HDMI input there. If you stick to their kit, the install is fairly simple IF you have a sunroof. Once again, MVI offers great customer service in case you do run into any glitches. They are also a vendor on here as well if you did not know. NOTE: ***NON-SUNROOF VEHICLES*** You do need a new headliner if you don't have a sunroof as you need the mounting bracket for the screen which offsets the screen from of the original position of the overhead dome lamp leaving ts existing hole exposed. On sunroof vehicles, the dome lamp and screen use the sunroof frame to mount to and you just enlarge the existing dome lamp hole.
As the 2017's are starting to become more common we are seeing more and more owners comment on the fact that GM deleted some their favorite features. The big one is the ability to play video at ALL from USB regardless of vehicle state; in fact if you have ANY 2017 GM Vehicle that uses the "Next Gen" HMI based system this ability is gone. Gone also is the Pandora application which apparently many of you used in lieu of Car Play or Android Auto. GM did add one feature however which is finally the release of the new "App Shop".... which has... three.. yes three apps in it. Onstar at Your Service, Glympse and the Weather Channel. The good news is we've addressed all of these concerns and the solution is now available for purchase! Thats right the new 2017 spec version of our famous HMI unlock now includes adding video playing BACK into the HMI in park AND in motion as well as additional video formats. It also includes the Pandora application as well just in case its something you liked to use and as always the rest of the HMI motion locks are removed as usual, navigation, configuration, etc etc now with the addition of App Shop in motion! Please contact Anthony via text to place your order as supplies for the 2017 unit are VERY limited.
