  1. Thanks for all the feedback. Might look into some deterrents. I’m thinking a huge motion activated flood light should do the trick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hey guys, Wanted to get your input on what if any sort of surveillance systems you are using for your vehicle. Long story short, some scrub broke into my truck at 5:30 AM late last week. I had left my vehicle unlocked after carrying both arms full of groceries up to my house. I pressed the FOB lock button once in my home but was out of range apparently. Cut to early morning, the thief broke in, stole a few hundred dollars worth of belongings and took off. I have security camera footage of the theft happening, and even have their location and entire days GPS points as they stole a cellphone, but the police will not do a thing as they say I dont have enough evidence to get a search warrant on the thief (despite having exact location data from the phone they stole leading directly to the house they live in). How the location data from the stolen phone is not enough evidence is beyond me, but that seems to be the common theme with local law enforcement... Sigh. I believe if I was able to provide clear footage of the thief it would be enough, but when you're filming from a few feet away in the dark, facial details aren't exactly HD. That leads me to my question. I've seen videos like THIS ONE where somebody installs an Arlo HD wifi camera in their vehicle. Have any of you taken a similar approach after a break in, or have any tips. I'm super cheesed after the break in and am trying to protect myself in the future. The blame is fully on me for leaving my door unlocked, as we watched in the footage the thief and his lookout check about 10 other cars on the block that were locked and moved on. But I would very much like to be able to protect myself and gather quality evidence in the future should this happen again. Any input is appreciated. Thanks all!
  3. Thanks for following. We will update with progress as it's made
  4. Hey guys, still working on this. Price will all depend on a bunch of factors. We're looking at options for converting the screen to HD, incorporating the old backup camera to the new system or adding the brand new HD cameras. It all takes time. As for cost, it's not going to be a cheap upgrade. It will require multiple custom fabricated harnesses depending on the type of system your truck currently has installed. I will promise you this though, I will make it a priority to get this into the hands of as many people as I can. I'm not and never have been a programmer trying to make huge profits off of you guys, I'm a truck owner just like you and I think the more tech we can upgrade in our trucks at an affordable price, the better. Wifi hotspot is working but it works with the onstar module as that's the unit that has the LTE/4G modem in it. As soon as I have updates, I'll post them. Sorry to dangle the piece of meat in front of your face and not provide more frequent updates, but I've been busy at work with some very exciting news which I will share with all of you soon. Stay tuned
  5. Not quite there yet but keep your eyes peeled to this thread and I'll release details when we have them.
  6. it will be possible. My truck is a 2014 SLE and that's the exact same truck you see this running on.
  7. It all comes down to how long. Like I said, we haven't extensively tested the modules yet. Look for updates to come but all of these things are in testing stages still. Keep posted to the original post and you'll see updates and unlocks as we discover them.
  8. Hey guys, Something very exciting to share with you. A lot of people have been interested on whether or not this 2.5-3.0 HMI retrofit would even be possible in our older generation of trucks. Well, I'm happy to say that the proof-of-concept is here for you to take a peek at Like I mentioned in the video, there are still some kinks that we need to work out. Navigation is handled in a different way on the newer HMI than the previous version, and we're still testing access to other stock 2019+ vehicle applications (onstar availability, store compatibility, wifi hotspots etc.). But I'm happy to report that not only does it work on our test bench, but it also works in my 2014 (which I think is pretty sweet). In regards to the new 3.0. Carplay and Android Auto are working as you'd expect, but they're faster and less buggy that with the old HMI's. the entire unit is just a nice face-lift and snappier to use all-around.Go test a 2019 Sierra and you'll see what I mean. We are also working on some pretty fun unlocks and features for these units as well, so keep your eyes peeled. I'm hoping to be able to offer a full retrofit kit for the new 3.0's in the not-so-distant future. There are a few things that need to be sorted, harnesses to be made, etc. to facilitate a seamless upgrade experience, but we're getting closer and closer each day and I figured it was time to share a bit of our progress. Please, if there's any questions you have post them below. I'll be happy to answer Thanks again for reading/watching. Feel free to PM me about any of your vehicle update needs. *****Q&A***** 1. Does this require the HD screen? A - No. This was done on a 2014 SLE with the SD screen. However, we CAN retrofit an HD screen into the system. 2. Will we be able to provide unlocks for this generation of HMI like Video in Motion, Rear Camera in Motion, Boot Logos and more..? A - YES. We will post those upgrades and mods here as well as to their section on the T1XX area of the forum when they become available. (Hint hint, soon) 3. What hardware is required to complete this upgrade? A - Right now, there is a fair bit going on behind the scenes to make this work, and we're still not fully at 100% functionality. These units use new HD cameras, they connect to certain components differently and use some completely different components... All of this has to be taken into account when we make a retrofit kit. So while this isn't as simple as a 2.0-2.5 upgrade, we're working hard to make it as easy as a swap as possible.
  9. I'm happy to offer this service as well. PM me.
  10. First of all, this is literally a steal of a deal. A screen, 2.5 HMI, Radio and OnStar module for this price is GREAT. This is an awesome setup for someone who wants to switch from an IO4 to an IO5 unit. Great upgrade. This is AA/Carplay enabled and is for a Bose vehicle. I'm happy to program this for the buyer. Hope that helps
  11. It gets caked in there really good because of the dust and dirt. I cleaned the plug very good first and it slid much easier.
