  1. Has anyone tried this yet? I set up an appointment Friday to have the firmware in my stereo updated and will be ordering the 2.5 HMI module tonight to see if this actually works.
  2. Has anyone recently had issues with AndroidAuto not connected to their phone? I've tried three different USB cables (all which charge the phone), reinstalled AA and removed all Bluetooth connections and reconnected the phone. I suspect AA recently updated and now we are waiting on GM to update the infotainment system. When I touch AA on the screen it says, please connect a phone with AA app installed. 2019 Silverado RST with 8 inch infotainment, connecting a Samsung S8 with AA version 4.4.592344. Yes, it had been working before, and one of the cables I tried was the one it previously funct
  3. Hi all, Had my 2020 LT, 5.3L, Conv package I and II (TX i.e All-star edition) for for 1 week tomorrow and I've noticed quite the oddity when using aa with turn by turn directions from G. maps. The voice reciting the directions will change from Female to Male. Sometimes even between the same sentence, i.e Male says in 2 miles, and Female says, turn right. I swear, I'm not yanking ur chains. I've seen a post about it on Google forums and Reddit and have tried the troubleshooting listed to no avail. Anyone else seen something like this?

  5. I purchased my truck in February of 2016, and used Apple CarPlay from day one, and never had an issue. Fast forward two years to an Android phone. I plug in, expecting the same easy set up as my work truck (2018 Silverado), and nothing happens. I was confused, as I remember when I bought the truck it was advertised as supporting Apple Carplay/Android Auto. After checking through several forums and MyLink version numbers, I realized it needed an update. Called the dealer and set an appointment, but when I arrived, I was told this was a "customer pay" update, (if I remember correctly, as of Apri
  6. Android auto has stopped coming up in the console display on my 2016 Silverado.The app comes up on my phone when I connect to the USB port but will not display on the console, the phone does charge though. Google search says replace the cable for the phone, that didnt work. Took it to the Dealer and they have no idea either. Any help would be much appreciated!
  7. Hey, love this site, new owner of a TrailBoss custom and wish I would have gotten the LT with more little bells and whistles, but I was too cheap! Now I'm trying to manipulate as many functions and additional features as possible. I'm replacing the center console thanks to this site, now I'm trying to get text messaging from my limited infotainment. Any ideas? I'm anxiously hoping for many!! Thanks guys?
  8. Yes, you did indeed read that correctly. You can now have all of the proper steering wheel controls inside of Car Play / Android Auto without having to physically upgrade your cluster. This service will still require you to ship your cluster in (and of course we will turn them as fast as humanly possible) or you may choose to source a used one as these are plentiful and honestly pretty cheap! Just make sure you get with us prior to purchasing a used unit to make sure everything matches as it should as there are many different types and combos such as red/blueish green lighting, Z71
  9. Alright... let me take a deep breath... I just bought a 2019 Chevy Silverado Custom Trail Boss. I am having an issue with my 2019 Chevy MyLink infotainment system and its integration with my Note 9 since the Android Pie update. The issue: When I receive a phone call through Bluetooth OR Android auto, I am able to answer the phone call but... The ringer will NOT stop ringing on my infotainment system. The only way I can talk to the person on the other line is by picking up my phone and disabling it from the infotainment system (this did not happen at all on the previous software
  10. I wanted to let everyone know about a new product we are now offering for the I0B work truck vehicles. We can now offer a navigation solution to these vehicles and at the same time give you the ability to add more camera functionality and HDMI input for video solutions. This particular vehicle has been somewhat ignored by most manufactures out there as far as solutions go, but I think you find this one to be pretty slick. What I have really noticed about the I0B system is that the screen resolution and clarity is WAY better than the 8" touchscreen (in my opinion). This not only opens up a who
  11. Hey, everyone! New to the forums here -- my name is Chris and I just picked up my 1st Suburban yesterday; a CPO 2016 LT w/Luxury package, Sun & Entertainment, wheel upgrade, etc. Loving the truck so far, just one minor issue. I am unable to get the car to recognize my Pixel 3 XL and launch Android Auto. Before anyone asks, yes -- I have the AA app installed. I've done my due diligence before posting, scouring the web for hours now, to no avail. The USB works in charging my phone, but the car just won't launch AA. I was able to connect my wife's iPhone and CarPlay launched immediatel
  12. Hey everyone, I've been meaning to post my experiences with Android Auto in my 19 trail boss. I have a Pixel 2 XL phone running the latest version of Android OS (v.9 with Dec. security patch) along with the latest version of Android Auto (v.3.8.584564). I also have the latest version of Chevy Mylink installed on my truck. So I have been experiencing random android auto app closes while listing to Spotify or using Google Maps for navigation. I have tried troubleshooting the problem by switching usb cables, which I am using type c, wiping my "managed cars" from within and
  13. New to GM lineup... Coming from another brand (Ford with Sync) I was used to receiving semi-regular updates for the software... Does GM put out updates for Intellink? If they do is this something that only dealers can update? I looked on the GM owners sight and couldn't find any info. Thanks
  14. Hey all I have been looking on the forum for info about upgrading the factory io3 base radio in my 15 Sierra 3500. It's a work truck so I don't want to go crazy. I was looking at the pioneer 4200nex and 8200nex. I really want to keep it looking factory without hacking up the dash. I'm looking for some feedback from anyone currently using these radios or any other better head units that have nav and Bluetooth or Android Auto without spending more than $1000. Thanks for any advice!
  15. Hi, I just recently picked up my factory-ordered 2016 Silverado LT with the IO5 8" MyLink unit. The Android Auto integration works quite well except for one major problem namely that I can't always get Android Auto to launch when I connect my phone (a Nexus 5X). After some fiddling around, I've discovered that the only way that I can get Android Auto to launch reliably is to connect the phone after I've started the truck but before the Bluetooth connection is established. If I connect the phone after the Bluetooth connection, Android Auto attempts to start on the phone but then stops
  16. Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president, Buick and GMC commented on the system, saying, “Providing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility ushers in a new era of staying connected in a convenient manner." Apple Car Play is rolling out sooner and will be available in many markets in the fall.
  17. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9/28/2015 Those 2016 GMC Sierra Canyon and Yukon owners who have the available eight-inch IntelliLink system will have Android Auto installed by their dealer starting in March 2016. The only change required will be a software update. Google Maps, Google Now and the voice interface with Google form the backbone of this new system. A wide range of Google Apps such as WhatsApp will also be compatible. A single button on the steering wheel will enable users to use voice commands to operate the Android Auto system. Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice p
  18. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3/1/2016 General Motors rolled out a series of press alerts today letting owners know that Android Auto is now available.

  21. Apple's CarPlay and Google's Android Auto is software that allows certain functions and apps from a driver's smartphone to be projected and controlled from a vehicle's in dash infotainment system.
