  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. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 1500. The truck has factory installed radio, navigation, touch screen etc. I am told I already have the I06 module, so why don't I have carplay? And why do I have to buy another I06 to add carplay? can't I just do a software update?
  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. I have a 2016 GMC Sierra capable of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and have been playing with CarPlay now for a little while. Yesterday I borrowed a friends used Android to test Android Auto. I'd be interested in your opinions and I will share my experience. I have had iPhones for years now. I am deep in the eco-system as my home and work computers are also OSX. Switching is a daunting thought considering my iCloud Contacts are well curated and my Google Contacts are like the wild wild west. I digress. Generally I have some gripes. CarPlay and Android both require USB and Bluetooth connection to the head unit which is confusing, is USB not enough? I doesn't seem like I could, for instance, connect a secondary Android device for Android Auto that is connected to WiFi via my phone or the car's 4G connect, and have my iPhone connected to the Bluetooth for Siri or even just for phone calls. I would be completely fine with sacrificing the Siri integration from the iPhone if I could get bluetooth audio for phone calls. Maybe I am not doing it right, if you have figured that out let me know. The touch screen is great for a truck head unit. I don't expect anything near what one would get on a new smartphone and I have heard the processor on this newer head unit is faster than the older models which is much appreciated when navigating interfaces. Also, the audio quality for phone calls is superb. Coming from a few year older GTI, people that don't even know I've upgraded don't ever notice I am on the road talking to them anymore. Spot on. After playing with CarPlay I can say that Apple Maps is much nicer to look at than the standard navigation. Apple hasn't convinced me that it's Maps application is ready for the prime time though. IMHO after reading countless articles and having iPhones back when Google Maps was default -- they never should have gotten into the Maps game. That is arguable, and should, theoretically, get better as they are in development of a car. Phone integration with Siri is fantastic as well. Spotify on CarPlay is a delight to look at. Again miles away from the Media interface on the IntelliLink. Android auto -- wow. Whereas it's obvious Apple too the iOS idea with big icons -- and it works on the head unit -- it looks like Google went from the ground up. They took their material design philosophy and applied it to the head unit interface. I have to say it is impressive. Overall the user interface is gorgeous to look at. Navigating around to the different areas, Music, Navigation is a breeze. Ok Google mic is always in the top right corner. Icons are clear. Minimal buttons when not needed. Intuitive controls. If it sounds like I am not giving Apple credit here, they have a system and it works. It's worked for years on my phone so I get that. This is my first intro into the new design of Google's apps and I have to say I am staggered. Google maps on the IntelliLink is a marvel. Incredibly smooth. Design refined over years of Google Maps owning (IMHO) the directions arena. My conundrum is with the whole USB/Bluetooth situation. Android Auto for certain does not work unless you have it connected via USB & bluetooth. Therefore it's not like I can keep an older Android without a cellular plan in the glove box just for Android Auto and still have any integration with the iPhone 6S. That is a huge bummer. I would have no issue buying even a used Android with a cracked screen since I don't need the screen. I'm in a touch position here because of how nested I am in the Apple world and how attractive having Google Maps on that 8" screen. I don't think there is anything else better to look at on that screen. What is your experience? Have I missed anything?
  5. I don't know how many 2016 trucks are out there, but I was curious if anyone else was having issues with choppy audio playback from Apple Carplay. If I have my iPhone plugged in via Lightning cable, the audio playback is extremely choppy, and it doesn't get any better with time. Also, the CarPlay apps will take several seconds to respond to any touch, which effectively renders the feature unusable. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? I know the feature is brand new with the MyLink system, but I'm surprised at just how buggy it is. It's not a huge bugaboo for me, as the Bluetooth works fine, so I figured if I get nothing here, I'll bring it up at my first oil change. -I have the 40/20/40 bench, and I am utilizing the USB port in the flipdown console -Pandora plays just fine when connected through the same Lightning cable in the same port -Have tried multiple Apple and other certified Lightning cables -Currently running iOS 9.2 on my iPhone 5s -Have cleaned my Lightning port on the phone to no avail -Have 2.2GB free memory on the phone -The music I am attempting to play is stored on the phone I have yet to try another phone, but if anyone has any other ideas or similar experiences, I would appreciate the input. Thank you.
  6. So my truck is at the dealer to have the radiator replaced under warranty, in relation to a TSB. I always get a loaner vehicle from my dealer and this time they gave me a 2016 Sierra SLE All Terrain. Nice truck, not quite the SLT All Terrain like my 2014. Well this one has the updated Intellilink system with Apple CarPlay. So I have been testing it out and playing with it. Few reactions right off the bat: 1. The latest MMI system is SO much faster than my 2014. Going between menu's is so much quicker. With my 2014, there is a noticeable lag when pressing a screen option. GM must have upgraded the hardware to include a better processor. Should have been the case in 2014, but live and learn I guess. 2. Backup camera seems to be a lot crisper than my 2014. 3. Apple CarPlay add's some nice features, I would see myself using it. But when it interupts my music to read off a text message, I get annoyed. Hah And finally here is a short video I made of the new MMI system. Enjoy.
  7. As I'm sure many of you folks are aware, they're adding a "projection" option to the 2016 Silverados and Sierras within Mylink/Intellilink. Do any of you know if it would be possible to add these features to a 2014-15 Silverado via a software flash, HMI swap (as some people already do to upgrade to nav), or other means? Any info or insight would be appreciated. I don't care much for factory navigation, but having Google Maps on my truck's display would be awesome.

  9. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 9/24/15 Chevrolet is using the State Fair of Texas to take the final wraps off of the newly refreshed 2016 Silverado.

  10. 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
