  1. It’s called Scanner Radio in the Apple App Store. There are probably others that support CarPlay as well but this works really well for me.
  2. Hey guys - I saw someone ask about the OTA update, was wondering when it would arrive. Popped up last weekend for me(Western NY), took about 10 mins. I think this is the second OTA update since I installed new unit, no issues at all. Wireless CarPlay continues to work flawlessly and one of the favorite upgrades I've done. Thanks WAMS Some stuff that I'm also enjoying using wireless CarPlay. Alexa app - uses the trucks hotspot so now I can run my smart home from anywhere without touching my phone, music etc. You can pick the steering wheel button as the wake for Alexa so thats pretty cool too. It's cool when I'm leaving the driveway and hit the button to say close the shades, lock the doors or turn some tunes on on for the dog. I still use Siri for music so having both is nice. Alexa on a road trip can also provide some laughs with all the random sh*t we ask her. Also installed a scanner app on my phone which popped up on the truck in carplay mode. Awesome, now I can tune into the local fire department dispatch or any other as it finds my current location and presents a list of available Fire/EMS/Police channels. Nice to know whats going on when you hear sirens - always support your local FDs, especially the volunteer ones! I know we'd all like a bigger screen, but with the right setup and apps this system has been really good. All the map apps like Waze, Google Maps, etc all seem to work really well, the interface is really functional. Think I'll be keeping this truck until the second model year with supercruise comes out.
  3. i believe two OTA updates occurred after I installed the new module. No issues at all. (Adding the Alexa app has been most useful).
  4. Nice write up! I'm sure it will benefit others looking to do the same
  5. Took a little road trip, about 650 miles there and back, all highway cruising along at 72ish as I wasn't in a hurry. Gotta say I really like this truck. Adaptive cruise control was made for this kind of trip, really works quite well. my setup - 20' High Country with a GM 2" lift kit, Bilstein 5100's all around, adjustable up front. I've got the GM CAI and recently installed the Borla touring cat back. 285/65 BFGs. No drone, wooo! no drone detected - so happy with that purchase. 19mpg round trip. not bad. Got home and gave her a hand wash, and finally cracked open the Adams Graphene Tire dressing, so far I'm liking the blackness without high gloss.
  6. I did the same thing when I put the tonneau cover on. That compartment where the switch ends up appears to stay really dry with the pocket covers in, but I wrapped those wires too just in case.
  7. I don't think they designed the kit with that hole in mind, it's just pure luck that it fits. The cable provided was designed for the user to drill a hole, so I was super happy being able to make it fit the hole that was already there! I'm really curious to find out which accessory fits into that hole, there are two other small holes near it as well. Perhaps a tool track system ?
  8. Just shave the tab on the side of the switch, then you dont have to mess with the metal or coating on the hole.
  9. if that thing could double as a floatation device..they'd really be on to something. It looks funny, but I bet it works if it doesn't blow away.
  10. My buddy installed it today, and you were correct - the Borla touring is exactly what I was looking for. No apparent drone on the highway, no strange sound effects cruising through town going 35 either. When it's time to get on it, it doesn't disappoint, delivering a rich full reminder that it's got a pair under the hood. I think the CAI adds some cabin sound too, and cat-backs amplify that just a tiny bit more.
  11. Good deal - I'm not sure what gauge that wire is, but it's a beefy one! glad you got it setup, it's a simple mod that should be a factory standard feature. I also like supporting a small business here in the good old USA, a couple of hiccups along the way is no big deal when I look at it that way.
  12. When your wife buys you truck parts for your anniversary, you KNOW you found the right girl! Congrats!
  13. Yep, just switch to the opposite instructions and you'll be fine - I did the same thing, bought a multipack on amazon
