  1. I read your post but I am not having those issues. I have just a single front cam. I’m currently still having the static discharge after truck has shut off. My hard wire kit only has one power wire that I ran to the ACC fuse of the heated steering wheel. I am wondering if this is my problem of only having one positive/power wire instead of two power wires like other hard wire kits. My two thoughts that I am debating are: 1. Changing The current hard wire kit back to the constant power of the garage door button. 2. Getting a new hard wire kit that has three wires with the two power wires and running one to the accessory fuse and one to the constant power fuse. Right now the dash cam is recording while I am driving. It is not recording in parking mode or motion sensor mode. I am pretty sure from the directions that those two modes need the constant power fuse. A couple pics showing it on the passenger side next to my valentine V1 radar detector:
  2. Nice truck. Congrats. I like that color too. Sharp Enjoy it.
  3. Posted this on the other thread but was wanting to get some more opinions here. Will take some pictures soon when I get a chance. Hardwired the dash cam to passenger side garage door button fuse today. It took several tries but finally got the garage door button to work but had some static over the radio and the parking assist button would flash on and then off while sitting in the truck with it off. I don't like any of that of course but wanted to get some opinions.
  4. So I tried this today with a Rove 4k dash cam. I am not sure that it is correct. I definitely don't want to mess up my truck. Here is my experience and questions/concerns. So I have the dash cam positioned on the windshield. I ran the wire up by the bracket around the rearview mirror, tucked it at the top headliner over to the pillar, down behind the weather stripping and into the fuse box area. I disconnected the negative first. I finally got the kick panel off which was harder than I thought and found a place for the ground wire. I used the fuse that was mentioned by OP for the garage door opener which is always on. I didn't realize that the orientation of the fuse mattered. I tried a few combinations of the two fuses in the same spot but turned around. After each time, I reconnected the negative terminal and checked things. 1. the camera powered up but garage door button would not work. I turned the truck fuse around but left the add a fuse in the same orientation and tried everything again. 2. the camera powered up but garage door button would not work again. Finally after turning them 3-4 times, finally the camera powered up and the garage door button worked. But I noticed a couple things while sitting in the truck reading the dash cam manual. 1. I heard static briefly over the radio and the parking assist button briefly flashed on and then went off. After the first and second fuse switch, the parking assist button did this cycle several times. After the last time when I got the garage door button to work, the parking assist just flashes once and then done. 2. Normally when the truck is on and I turn it off then open the door the radio shuts off and if I close the door again there's a horn honk letting me know the key is still in the truck. This is hard to explain but it is no longer happening or working that way now. I am going to watch it for a day or two and see what happens but was wanting to get others opinion especially if you have already done this. Thanks for any tips or comments.
  5. I second Proclip. They’re pricey but very sturdy.
  6. This is the one that I got from Advanced Auto Parts for $10-15. It works pretty good for reception from what I've noticed so far. I actually use either CarPlay from my iPhone or use the trucks iHeart radio app. Since mine was hitting my garage door too, this is more for function and aesthetics.
  7. Here is my Proclip iPhone mount. They are a little expensive. I have had a couple but so far they have held up really good. Until we get wireless CarPlay, I will continue using this iPhone holder and mount from ProClip. It seems to be pretty sturdy. No problems with my knee or leg hitting it. It stays put and holds the phone securely. Just get in and slide the phone down and it "clicks" into the cable at the bottom. Where I have it placed currently, very minimal blockage of the buttons behind it. I don't use the trailer brake or the lane keep assist. It does very slightly block the first seat warmer button on the left. Of course this is only when the phone is mounted. I have not done any work yet to hide the wires. I have been lazy. Hope this helps someone else looking for a phone mount.
  8. Is that the competition in the background? any Friday night truck pulls between each other out front? haha
  9. Yes. I love mine and honestly I bought because of this plus many other reasons. I had a lot of these features coming my '16 Yukon XL Denali so I knew what I wanted. The one thing that I wanted that was missing was the 360 Surround camera view. It is amazing especially with this big truck. I didn't think that I would like the HUD at first but now it is weird not having on other vehicles. (first world problems) It does not mess with my vision and my eyes don't have to travel that far to see my speed. I don't use the LKA and I really don't like it. I changed the setting to the beep instead of the seat vibration but I leave it off and never turn it on. I might try it again on this truck to see if I change my mind. I agree with several of the posters about getting it. Once you do, you will not regret it and it will be hard to ever go back. My recommendation: Yes get it.
  10. Not really a feature but noticed that my radar detector restarts every time the truck goes into Auto Start/Stop if I forget to turn this off when I get in. It is kind of annoying. Has anyone else noticed this as well?
  11. Finally got my White 2020 AT4 about 3 weeks ago and love it. Just getting around to adding some photos.
  12. If you need the extra USB ports, I would suggest a small USB hub 2-4 ports on Amazon.
  13. Here are the new wheels. Fuel Blitz Model D675 18x9 +20mm offset - Updated Now I have to find a place to get rid of the factory wheels. I just installed the ProClip mount for my iPhone today so I have not taken a photo yet. Will try to take some this weekend and update.
  14. Here are few photos of the bed cover from GMC and installed by the dealer. I had them throw this in on my deal when I purchased the truck. It is a Hard Tri Fold. It is pretty flush. It leaks a little in the front corners but I took it back to the dealership to fix the latch. It does not give me full access to the whole bed. It folds up two panels from the tailgate and latches next to the back of the cab. Or it will fold one panel back from the cab towards the tailgate to give me quick access to the front of the truck bed near the cab. It also has a keyed lock near the cab on the driver side. Just got this installed within the last couple of days. So I am still working on the seal and water leakage. I understand that it is not 100% waterproof but was hoping to get it pretty close. I can see a small gap on the driver side front corner near the cab. I just don't know what to put there yet. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
