  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. 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 version and it was glorious). The ringer will also never turn off even after the phone call is ended. The only way I can turn the ringer off while driving is by turning it down (cannot switch back to radio to continue listening to music, which is very aggravating), so I am sitting in silence for the remainder of my trip... unless... I pull over on the side of the road, shut my vehicle down for 2 minutes to let the computer reset and start it back up. This issue does not occur on my work iPhone either... I thought that it might be an issue that chevy's infotainment support team could solve... It seems that it is not their issue because it only happens to android Pie software version phones and not any others. I call Samsung... do everything you could think of to troubleshoot this issue (finally factory reset my phone completely only to NOT resolve the issue). Samsung seems to believe that I need to send my phone in for a repair (even though it wasn't happening with the previous software version). Chevy thinks I need to just wait for a new software update for Android Pie... but I hate waiting because it is a very aggravating issue and love my music! Is ANYONE else having these same issues? Is there a solution that anyone can think of? I would like to just revert back to the previous software version and forget about it, but I am not sure of the problems that may cause...
  3. 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 whole world of new opportunity for the I03 trucks, but it now gives the current I0B user more possibility. I'm eager to get some feed back and what everyone's thoughts are on this. As usual, I wont be in here a ton, but I will make a point to try and check in at least once a day for a while to participate and answer questions. This first video was made kind of on the fly and with very little time, however it does show the new pieces capability's. I'm really hoping to get a more detailed video put together in the next couple weeks showing more. As always...please feel free to TEXT me with any questions. 919-995-9523
  4. 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 immediately. I tried a couple different cables and even tried all the "developer options" tweaks that I read about online. I ordered a couple of different USB-A to USB-C cables built to 3.0 spec just to be sure cables aren't the issue, but other than that not sure what I can do other than waste 1/2 at the dealer to see if they can figure it out. I really don't want to have to do that. Help, GM-TRUCKS.com, you're my only hope!
  5. 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 android auto, I also have tried factory resetting my phone completely without restoring from a backup. Some days are better then others for how long the app will display without randomly closing. When this problem does occur I can usually just select "Android Auto" on Mylink and the app will launch again, sometimes. I wasn't sure if there are any other daily Android Auto users out there having the same trouble as me on their trail boss? *Edit: I also experience audio issues in AA every now and again. I will plug my phone in and play a song through Spotify using AA and the audio's volume will be lower then the FM radio. I've tried making the adjustments using my phone's volume buttons but it doesn't result in a change through Mylink. I unplug the USB cable and plug it back in and like magic the audio is much louder. **Edit2: The audio issue I mentioned in my previous edit is no longer happening to me. I suspect a recent Chevy MyLink update resolved that. I ordered a factory USB type-c cable from Google Store and I am awaiting it's arrival. I'll post back with my results. I'll update my post with additional info when I get the chance. I appreciate any thoughts or solutions. Thanks!
  6. 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
  7. 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 April 2017?) and it would cost me ≈$50 to regain the functionality I purchased with the truck. Anyone else have this issue, and if so, what was the result?
  8. 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!
  9. 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. If I connect the phone before starting the truck, Android Auto sometimes launches but often doesn't . What I don't know is whether the problem is with the phone or the truck. Has anyone else come across this problem? If so, is there a solution? Any information greatly appreciated.
  10. 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 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.

  12. 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. The updates are available for 2016 model year GM vehicles that were prepped to accept the upgrade. The way it works is you take your Chevy, GMC, Buick, or Cadillac to the dealership and they will perform a software update to enable the Android Auto functionality. Android Auto will allow users to access Google Maps, Google Now, and to speak with Google. The system also allows, as GM puts it, "Access to the growing audio and messaging app ecosystem that includes WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify etc." We wish the upgrade availability list was simple, but it is not. Here is the information we have by brand from GM regarding which vehicles can be upgraded. Note that some vehicles already have the Android Auto system. Call your dealership if you are unsure of your car's compatibility. Note that Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or higher. The system also requires that the phone be connected to the vehicle via the USB cable and ports. It does not work via BlueTooth: 2016 MY Chevy Vehicles with the 8-Inch MyLink Infotainment Eligible for the Android Auto Software Update: Malibu (Excludes Limited), Impala, Volt, Camaro, Camaro Convertible, Corvette, Corvette Convertible, Colorado, Silverado, Silverado HD, Tahoe, Suburban 2016 MY Cadillacs: All vehicles with Cadillac CUE with the exception 2016 SRX. XT5 and CT6 new models come equipped. 2016 MY Buicks: Regal or LaCrosse model equipped with an eight-inch IntelliLink system 2016 MY GMCs: Canyon, Sierra and Yukon models equipped with the 8-inch IntelliLink system

  15. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 5/28/2015 Chevrolet has announced that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comparability will be coming to 14 models for the 2016 model year. 2016 Silverado, Silverado HD, Colorado, Tahoe, and Suburban owners will all be able to take advantage of the screen sharing features by the end of the model year. 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. Both of Chevrolet's infotainment systems will work with CarPlay and Android Auto for 2016. The 7-inch system will work with both standards at the start of production while Chevrolet will offer owners of the 8-inch systems the ability to upgrade later in the year. The 8-inch system will only be compatible with CarPlay at the start of production and will gain Android Auto compatibility with the update. Unfortunately for current owners, 2015 and earlier system cannot be upgraded and will never work with CarPlay and Android Auto. That said, don't worry. We'd have to imagine that aftermarket upgrade options will be in hot demand for this new bit of tech. We also expect a similar announcement from GMC in the near future. Stay tuned! 2016 Chevrolet Models that will be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 7-inch MyLink Spark Cruze Malibu Camaro Silverado Silverado HD 8-inch MyLink Cruze Malibu Impala Volt Camaro Corvette Colorado Silverado Silverado HD Tahoe Suburban
