  1. Yeah it can actually support a TON of USB devices, but I think most people are fine with the 5 provided lol. Powered is essential or you could cause strain on the HMI if too many devices are using it.
  2. Anker is a solid 3rd party cable manufacturer and in my eyes superior to OEM Apple and android cables. Never had an issue with them and they happily carry the proper charge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No your usb will be fine. You want to just make sure it’s 2016 or newer. They changed wireless charging kids but the usb is the same model from the 2016 and up. If you’re talking about a Silverado/Sierra here the new usb will contain only an aux cord and 2 USB ports as opposed to the setup with the SD card from the earlier 2.0 HMI model equipped vehicles. The ports are compatible from many models of vehicles made in 2016 and there are decent deals to be had on them. I have a bunch as well. I’ve used both 2.0 and 3.0 usb drives in them, they both work but you’ll obviously retain 2.0 speeds. Also, I noted in an earlier post the new units actually output around 2.5 amps while charging. I suspect this is to combat the fact the phone is doing more processing while in CarPlay/Android Auto mode but I haven’t taken a reading from my old SD card slot from my 2014. Regardless, always nice to have a quick charge If anyone has any other questions please feel free to keep posting them and I’ll do my best to reply. Also feel free to send me a PM regarding any other upgrade related specifics if you’d prefer to ask a few questions. I’m always happy to help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Test drove an AT4. They have front cameras. zoom in on the grille.
  5. Just got our IOB test bench. Stay tuned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Didn't even realize that, Frank but that's an awesome feature. I hated selecting a new app on the phone and carplay closing my music. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just wanted to remind you iPhone users to update to IOS 13! It's a totally new skin for carplay and looks great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Thanks for following. We will update with progress as it's made
  12. 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
