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.

Some words in all of that might as well be a fore in language for me. I started to use Mvi for radio upgrade but went Kenwood to replace work truck radio.

Thanks!! If you do this and need help on how I varied from their kit, let me know. Hopefully you have a sunroof because the headliner wasn't cheap.

Unfortunately not... But been toying w idea of adding suede headliner, so this might be my perfect "excuse".

Perfect excuse!!! I've always wanted to do that as I love the Mercedes AMGs that have the suede. You'd definitely need to post pics if you do.

 

You've probably already thought of this but if they re-wrap your headliner, you should be able to cut the hole for the screen and have them fill the dome lamp hole with that piece and you wouldn't be able to tell. If you look closely at one of my pics, image 3, you can see where the dome lamp would go on the new headliner as it's almost "pre-stamped" to be cut at the factory. At the very least, if it was noticeable, it wouldn't be more than that. I considered having my headliner re-wrapped but no one remotely close to me does that so I just forked out the money for a new headliner which cost me $687 (wholesale).

 

A co-worker had his Dodge Dakota headliner wrapped in suede when I live in the DFW area by a local shop and it was around $450 with him pulling the headliner if my memory hasn't failed me. I imagine it'd only be a little more than that for a Silverado due to size. Just remember it's a tight fit squeezing the headliner through the left rear door. An extra hand would be extremely helpful in order not to tear/scratch the headliner, especially if suede. Good luck!

Hi new to the forum here. I have a 17 denali hd and want to do the rse install with the factory gear like you did. I want the rear rse inputs as well. Already talking with mvi about the kit. How did you stray away from theirs with the rear inputs. I want it all to look like it came from the factory.

First welcome to the forum! Lots of great knowledge can be found here. Don't be afraid to share some pics of that '17 Denali. Also hopefully my emails help and if have other questions, just let me know.

BlkSS, do you have any pictures of the wiring going to the RSE?  I have a 16 with Factory RSE and I'm considering adding HDMI input, but I'm wondering how the screen is wired to the factory unit.

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.

I'm trying to piece things together myself. For the past year Ive been trying to source the 17 HDMI input parts and find out if its possible to retrofit. But no one seems to know. 

 

Indiwork makes a plug n play HDMI input kit and also an android box that plugs into it. I'm trying to figure out if its possible to route the video from it to the RSE. That way I can use the hotspot and my DirecTV app on the rear screen for my son to watch.  Proformance Diesel has a preorder for an android setup for the mylink but I'm not sure how it's setup.

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.

...following. In my center console retrofit and circuit observations, I noticed a 2nd Aux Input. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure what this was for... it never dawned on me that this was for RSE. So while I closed the book on a use case for this 2nd Input, I might reopen it for some use cases. Thanks for the detailed info!

      Alright so I’ve been wanting to to the 6l80 swap in my 2011 rcsb 4.8/4l60 for a while now. Not for gas mileage or anything like that, simply because I want to. I am capable of doing the swap and have a tuner, just need to know what all is needed. Thanks!

      Hello, I own an 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel Crew Cab Long box pick up, it's throwing a display message, but not giving me any codes, the message is service trailer brake system, it used to show that message and then I had it brought into the shop the second of July and they replaced the trailer break relay in the rear, had to change out some eye connectors at the fuse box. They also replaced the fuse. Worked great again from then to about a three weeks ago and this was including an 11 000km trip towing the trailer, it brought the message up again. The truck had been sitting and driven every once and a while, a bit of idling this winter as well, but no towing. so I replaced the fuse because it looked blown. After replaced it work fine again no more message thought maybe wet weather caused it. Now unfortunately now again yesterday I went to use it again and the message comes up, it was just recently used a few days ago and no message, today we have some dense fog as well as some rain. I think it only happens when it rains heavy or fog.. I am not entirely sure on that though. I replaced the fuse in the fuse box for the (ITBC) The one I changed out before to get it to work, and this time it did not work and nothing changed on the dash message still up.  I can more than easily replace the Relay without any issues, but I don't want to do that if it is just going to create the exact same issue. Any ideas on what might be causing this?
       
      Also on a side note, whenever I start the truck it puts out grey smoke until it has warmed up passed about 79-85 degrees Celcius (174F-187F), which is normally after driving for about 5 mins 10 at most or letting it high idle until that temp, it also does smoke when driving until warmed up. it never puts out black or blue smoke. Its grey, just as it is on a cold day in a gas engine. today we've reached the highest temp lately about 8 degrees Celcius and it still smoked. It never did this in the summer or fall just after it got cold. So I am just wondering if this is normal or if something is causing this to happen when it shouldn't be. Could it be something  as simple as it needing an oil change? Or also does it need a long drive at highway speed to deal with burn cleaning the DPF? I am a new owner to this pickup, and it is my first year with it so I am new to diesel's and don't know what to expect from them.
       
      Any help Is much appreciated!

      I drive a 2014 Chevy Silverado with factory 22s and 285/45/r22 tires. I plan on putting a leveling kit on it and getting some bigger tires to beef it up a little bit. Thinking about a 3” leveling kit in the front with 1” blocks in the rear. (Just running a 2” leveling kit in the front would be an option but I’ve heard you can only get 33s under there)
       
      A few questions: does anyone have any experience with a setup like this? What’s the biggest size tires I could get? (I’m assuming I could get 34s without rubbing). And also, what are everyone’s recommendations on tread width? I’m wondering if I should stick with a 285/55/r22 or upgrade to something a little wider?
       
      I appreciate any help!

      The music sounds great as usual, but the connected party is complaining of my audio (crackling, raspy, choppy) when calling via my Apple iPhone X and connected to bluetooth.  I didn't have this issue with my previous phone and other devices don't seem to have the same experience.  Has anyone else experienced this with a new phone?

      General Motors has a very tricky task ahead of it. The company needs to transition from the old Silverado and Sierra generation to the new, while not suffering a dramatic loss in sales. Despite its best efforts, GM is expecting to lose 60,000 truck sales in Q1 and 120,000 in 2018 overall. This production switch will look to many like GM is losing market share due to the new design, and many media outlets will surely report it (incorrectly) as such.

      GM's chief financial officer, Chuck Stevens, outlined the plan to Motley Fool, saying: “This is an all-new architecture. Our last three generations of truck were fundamentally of the same architecture with changes in sheet metal. So this is an absolutely all-new architecture, which requires all-new body shops. So when we take downtime at certain facilities, it's because we're either converting or constructing new body shops to facilitate this launch. And we've been opportunistic around doing that around holiday periods so that you can get extra time to make these transitions without a full impact on downtime.”

      Despite its best planning, inventory build-up prior to the switchover, and work taking place on holiday weeks, GM still expects to have about one third less production of its Sierra and Silverado in the first quarter of its new truck generation. 

      One other interesting fact is that GM’s proud pronouncements that the Ft. Wayne plant will build the new Silverado has a twist; The plant won’t be capable of doing the final finish work on many of the new generation trucks during the transition. That means that many of GM’s trucks will need to be shipped out of the U.S. in an almost complete state, then finished in Oshawa, Ontario Canada. Making even more Silverados imported trucks.
