2017 Silverado Lt2 z71 with 8in infotainment. I just switched from Android to Apple. Very seldom had problems with android except Samsung s10+ would make random phone calls. Apple is a different story. iPhone 11 pro max. Started with IOS 13.1 and now am up to 13.1.2. Does not like me starting the truck with the remote. Must times it’ll take several miles before CarPlay will start. Sometimes not at all. Doesn’t matter if I put key in ignition before or after I connect the phone. I’ve also tried several different lengths and types of cables. Also which ever usb plug doesn’t matter. Though I did have a music usb thumb drive connected in the glove box. Removing this may have helped. Still troubleshooting that one. Also Bluetooth will disconnect when CarPlay starts. Though that was one of the fixes in 13.1.2. Not very impressed with Apple. At least it don’t make phone calls on its own like the s10+ does. Programmers are getting sloppy these days. While I’m here. Why is it google maps will show a satellite image on the vehicle screen and Apple maps does not? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
I've had my 2017 Silverado Crew Cab for a year. I'd occasionally notice a vibration at highway speed. I figured, big tires... OK. This would happen with my Hummer H3 too. Installed aluminum rollup tonneau cover last night (GM PN; 19333082). On my way to work this morning the ride was noticeably smoother and a bit quieter. I'm wondering now how much of the shaking was due to cross wind affect on the open bed.
Tell you what GM. It's a pretty car. Take a stock Blazer to Moab and run the trails with the Hummers or the Jeeps. Then run the Rubicon. If you still have a vehicle left after all that, I'll consider buying one. Because when I can I do like offroading and need a trail worthy rig. And if you haven't figured it out I'm not a Jeep fan. I want a vehicle I can take off the lot, go directly to the trails without doing 10k worth of mods. And then drive it home at the end of the day. And if I decide I want to stay the night I want to be able to put the back seat down and be comfortable.
Here's the concept that would have been a heck of a start.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hummer_HX#/media/File:Hummer_HX_NY.jpg
Look's like a Mazda CX5. Needs a V8 and better towing capacity. Also needs a ZR2 version I can take off-roading in places like Moab UT. Come on GM you have enough cross-overs. Make something I can take out all day and then drive home. But with enough actual flat area in the back so I can sleep if I decide to hang out to just watch the stars. Biggest things I hated about my H3 was the back seats would lay flat and the lack of go when I stepped on the peddle. GM you dropped the ball with Hummer. Time to step up and do it right.
When backing up into a parking space at work I have a habit of putting the truck into reverse while it's still rolling forward. I've done this in 3 trucks with 4L60 transmissions. Drive each well over the 150 k Mark. Never had a transmission failure. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
Yes. You can tell by RPO code and by how your underhood fuse box is set up.Go to www.gmupfitter.com and look through the technical bulletins for your vehicle. But I believe if you were set up for this you'd already have the switch installed. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
Did you make sure they reset the oil life clock (for lack of a better term) when they did the first oil change?
I don't know enough about the Silverado yet. But the Hummer H3s with side air bags would do this. Most owners will pull the fuse before offroading. If yours is a Z71 you can remind them its designed, and advertised as off roadable. Also a lawyer might be a good idea too. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
