If you saw my comment in our Live Review of a 2014 Silverado over the last week, you know that I ran into some issues trying to listen to Bluetooth audio through my phone. I've since confirmed using some diagnostic apps that using multiple devices running Android 4.2.2 and 4.3, only the left channel is played through the MyLink system. What we can't figure out is... why??

 

Is there anyone else with these new trucks that has tried Bluetooth audio streaming? How is it working for you? Also, what device, OS, and OS version are you running? What version of MyLink is installed on your truck?

 

Here

 

Devices we tried

Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2

Nexus 7 running Android 4.3

 

This Silverado was running MyLink software "version" 23174395 and we only heard audio from the left channel

 

Any one with other Android and Apple devices that can try this out and let us know what happens?

I honestly think it's an issue with how the OS handles the Bluetooth audio. I use custom ROMs on my phone and one build it works and the next it doesn't and then the next it's back working again.

 

Side question will audio streaming work through the usb connection for something like SiriusXM rather than Bluetooth?

 

Also, is it only music or is it phone calls as well that are only coming out of one channel?

 

I highly doubt this is an issue with the radio. My money is on the software on the phones...

We're hoping to figure it all out. Lets see if someone with an iPhone and someone with an older/different version of Android can chime in and we can compare notes.

Further deepening the mystery, tried bluetooth audio with a 2013 Ram 3500 with uConnect today. Worked perfectly.

Did you reboot the phone since you tried it in the Silverado?

I have been using my iPhone 4S running the latest version of iOS6 with the MyLink bluetooth, with no issues whatsoever. I'll have to check on my MyLink software version later, but it is whatever version came with the truck.

One suggestion though: is it possible that your phone is seeing the MyLink bluetooth as a some sort of bluetooth headset? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think when some phones connect to a headset, they only require the use of one audio channel. If that is the case, it may require a software update on the phone's part.

Where is the version info listed at for mylink?

While we're on the subject of the firmware version numbers does anyone know how these things get updates?

My software is the same ending in 395 just like everyone else.

 

I run iPhone 5 with iOS 7 beta 6 and Bluetooth audio works great like it should.

      I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. 
       
      Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best.
       
      - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock.
      - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being
      2wd.
      - Change to an aftermarket air intake.
      - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit.
      - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit
      - Exhaust?
      - How to get more performance from the truck.
       
      Anything would help,
       
      Thanks

      Heya folks,
      I have come across a 1993 chevy silverado 3500 with a swapped engine (502) I have little to no experience with cars. I've been looking at it with a mechanic who is considerably more experienced having worked on Cummins Diesels for a transport company. He's working on a truck of his own. I was trying to help him out by figuring out the firing order we've tried various ones, It doesn't appear to be misfiring but I have little experience with v8's so i'm not sure what a 502 or a 454 should sound like firing order-wise. I'd happily post a recording. Truck also has injection issues which means it needs a bit of help every time to start. It's also currently stuck in limp-mode as it will not exceed 1800rpm's. The computer has been 'tampered' with, presumably when the block was changed. It's currently with another mechanic who has a diagnostic system. 
      Basically, I was hoping someone could post the firing order of a 502 and I could check when I get her back from the mechanic.
      Thank you all in advance

      It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times.  Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process. 
       
      I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live.

      Thanks to a tip by a forum member, we now know exactly when we can start ordering a new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Or at least, when dealers can start to submit orders.
       
      So when can your local Chevy or GMC dealer get your 2019 order processed? The answer isn't one date... it's a couple. And it depends on if you want a Crew Cab or a Double Cab. 
       
      If you want a Crew Cab
      You're in luck. These are being ordered and produced first. Fleet orders start in a few days on April 26th. Retail orders through the Dealer Order Submission Process or DOSP start May 17th. Production is still undetermined with Quarter 3 (July/August/September) being listed for when the first saleable trucks will roll off the line. 
       
      If you want a Double Cab
      You're going to have to wait a few more months. Fleet orders start June 21st. The initial DOSP will begin August 16th and production is estimated in Quarter 4 (October/November/December). 
       
      If you want a Regular Cab
      You're really out of luck. All regular cab ordering and production is TBD. At this rate, don't expect any regular cab ordering or delivery at least until late late 2018 or early 2019.
