  1. I upgraded my system through MVI but I have factory Nav also and use Android Auto with Waze. I love Waze when it comes to navigating through traffic. I don't know if Car Play on this system uses Waze or not. I just installed a Pioneer AVIC-7200 NEX radio in my son's Pathfinder and his Car Play does use Waze...
  2. I have a factory nav module and I06 2.0 HMI module for sale for $300 plus shipping. IO6 Radio and HMI 2.0 Modules were removed from my 2015 Sierra SLT - Factory Navigation, XM Satellite Radio, Weather & Traffic subscriptions available through SiriusXM. Includes USB Module/SD Card Reader that resides in the center console. May be a plug-n-play upgrade from IO5 trucks. Harnesses not included.
  3. Christmas is coming Bump.... Still for sale. Factory Navigation, XM Satellite Radio, Weather & Traffic subscriptions available through SiriusXM.
  4. I went through MVI and bought the Linkswell system which gives you up to 6 cameras: https://www.gm-navigation.com/shop/2014-2016-gm-360-surround-and-blind-spot-camera-system/. I was doing a Nav Radio updgrade at the same time through MVI and it just made since to get everything through one source. Overall I'm happy with it but I'll say during the day the video quality is what you'd expect but at night, any light seems to flood the cameras and makes seeing anything meaningful is difficult. Can't say how any other cameras/systems are. I did have a problem with the module which MVI replaced right away and have not had any problems since other than my front camera has gone out twice. MVI replaced it once and I just put another one in without contacting them. I also purchased two of the wireless backup cameras from ADC Mobile: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/rvc-w2/. I have a 36' Pontoon Boat Trailer and 16' Enclosed Trailer, so wiring in the receivers to Linkwell system was easy. Linkswell System here too: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/multi-camera-interface-for-gm-vehicles-w-8-screen/ I do not have a three camera view if that's what you are looking for. Another consideration, there are other camera systems out there that will give you a birds eye view/split screen view. I don't have any links handy, but you can search for them. The customer service from both vendors is excellent. Let me know if you have other questions.
  5. I ran Toyo Open Country AT2 in that size before I put my level kit on my 2015 Sierra with aluminum arms. Had no problems. After I leveled it, I went with LT285/60R20. About the only run I get is at full lock in reverse. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Level and wheels

    Your ride will be worse with 20" wheels. You really should consider keeping a 18" wheel. I have the factory 20" wheels on mine and I like the wheels but when you put an LT tire on or run a lower profile tire, the lower sidewall really affects ride comfort. If I didn't have a spare wheel that matched my other wheels, I might consider another set of wheels when I replace tires.
  7. Torn on mirrors! Need help

    They look better when the truck has a little more lift and bigger tires... I added a 1.5" Body Lift and LT285/60R20 tires and they look so big on mine now... You can't beat the improved visibility they provide. I tow a 30' Pontoon boat and a 16' enclosed trailer; and I struggled even with mirror extenders on the stock ones. My mirrors are folded in the picture but you get an idea of difference in height between a stock height truck and mine with a 2" Level and 1.5" Body Lift....
  8. I don't have any experience with the Falken tire, but I'm running a Cooper Discoverer AT3 (LT285/60R20) currently and other than the weight of the tire, I've been pleased with it's performance. Going from a Toyo Open Country P275/60R20 to the LT tire made for a stiffer ride but the overall traction has been good in all conditions I've encountered. I tow a 30' Tri-Toon up a steep ramp and they do better than the Toyo's do. I rarely have to use 4WD, where as with the Toyo's it was a given that just getting out of the water I needed 4WD.
  9. Not to hijack the OP’s thread but is the ride improvement worth the cost of the lift kit and other components? I want to do the lift, im just a little apprehensive about spending that much....
  10. I’ll add to what some have already said but provide my experience. I have the Bilstein 5100’s at the stock setting with a Zone 2” Level Kit. The Bilsteins ride much better than the Rancho’s that came on my Z71. When I went from a P metric tire (P275/60R20) to a LT285/60R20, the ride is noticeably harsher. Nitto Grappler G2 is also available in a P metric size for certain sizes. I’m debating about going with a CST lift and 35” tires, or taking out the Zone Level kit and raise the 5100 up to max lift and then going with Nitto Grappler G2 305/55R20 XLS which is a P rated tire. Rim diameter and tire weight play a significant factor in ride quality.
  11. I have a Factory Nav module, HMI 2.0, and the USB/SD Reader for sale after upgrading mine in my 2015 Sierra SLT by MVI. I'm asking $300 for the whole package. It has the last map update (2017 version)...
  12. Price reduced to $300.00 plus shipping from 30102. Christmas is coming....
  13. Thanks for the clarification. I replaced my bulbs, ballasts, and igniters along with the plug... The lights seem to work fine, but I still have the b2575 & b2699 trouble codes. I cleared them and they came back.... Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Just to clarify, you do mean cut it off the relay harness not the headlight side is that right? The reason I ask is its difficult to find any information on the connectors. They all seem to be interchangeable between 9006 & 9012... Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
