Topics I've Started

Radio to phone issues

30 March 2017 - 12:00 PM

Trucks a 17, phone is a IPhone 5s, both new in December. At first all was well, I liked the projection. Then that stopped working, now the Bluetooth is getting slower and slower auto connecting. I'll sit in the truck when I first start it, waiting for them to connect, finally I give up. And it won't even try to connect while I'm driving.

Oil change next month, I'm wondering if the truck needs a update.

iBoard running board woes

14 March 2017 - 06:42 AM

They seem to be sturdy, I did paint the brackets before install.
Poor design on the hangers, the front right is a two piece because of the def tank, but my box clearly states 1500.
There is one bolt that holds the two pieces together, the bolt will act as a hinge, I complained and they sent an entire bag of 5 hangers and the hinge.
You could weld the two pieces together, but it's the principal. I'll post pics later.

Apple car play problems

08 March 2017 - 07:41 PM

I figured it wouldn't last long, the Apple car play worked great for about a month, still using the same cable. Radio doesn't recognize the phone, it does display the Bluetooth symbol, and calls work, but I really enjoyed the full projection options.
The other problem is the volume is always too low to hear, so I'm bumping the volume up at the first call each time I plug it in.
I'm sure GM blames Apple and Apple blames GM.

Tailgate lift assist

Does the factory offer a spring loaded tailgate?
I see people raving about the DeeZee lowering gas shock, but the torsion bar I saw installed on utube looked like some guaranteed rust holes in the near future.
What other options are there?

Does tow/haul button = max towing cap.

My truck has the tow haul button on the shifter, haven't checked the sticker on the door frame yet, and randomly wondered if that was a accurate giveaway.
