Just had my 2015 GMC Denali at the dealers after waiting until I got 4200 miles on it to let things settle out. I took it in for the 'clunk' at times in the 8 speed: their response: "could not duplicate customer concern", the squeaky flapper valve in the exhaust: "could not duplicate customer concern" What the service consultant said: (it works within GM limits and they don't have a solution anyway), for the dim headlights of which they had no idea there was bulletin, but GM has no bulbs. And that the Intellilink wouldn't send the pre-defined messages in response to text messages on my iPhone 6, which they said does not work with Apple phones, due to Apples limitations. So the only thing did was they reprogrammed the HMI module with the latest updates per doc 4078565 and the service tech said he was able to receive texts and send them through Siri. But NOW: Intellilink no longer recognizes any voice commands for any of my music on my iPhone… doesn't matter if its bluetooth connected or by USB cable, or on the SD card. It responds to everything with "pardon me" and after 3 attempts it says "goodbye" It only recognizes voice commands to change XM radio stations and navigation commands. Nor can I get text messages anymore through Intellilink. The system was working perfectly before I took it in, other than it would not send the predefined texts in response to a text msg. So aggravating to take your truck in, leave it for 3 days and have it come back worse than when it went in. At times when I leave my iPhone plugged into the cable, I come out and find the battery completely drained. Has happened many times. Why would my iPhone drain if left plugged into the USB? I'm waiting for GM to get bulbs to them and I'll take it in again, but at this point I don't have much confidence in getting anything done. After driving my old Z71 Sierra with just an AM/FM radio for 15 years, I guess I was expecting too much. Anyone else have this problem with the Intellilink system and possibly any solutions?
So here's my dilemma: I have an 80GB 5th generation iPod. It has about 13,000 songs on it. MyLink can only use voice commands to about 8,000 songs, so when I need to find a song I have to scroll through a crazy long list and take my eyes off of the road more than I would like to. Plus, MyLink is slow in retrieving the selection and playing it. I have decided to use a 16GB flash drive instead and just put my most favorite songs on it instead of trying to keep my whole collection in the truck. Problem is, that some of my album artwork doesn't show up. Since my songs are a mixture of mp3 and mp4, I thought the problem was in the tag data embedded in the file. So I downloaded a tag editor that would pull the missing artwork into the file. However, this did not solve the problem. The same files still do not show artwork. Through an internet search, I found that MyLink uses Gracenote to pull in the artwork whenever a media device is plugged in or running through Bluetooth. And if the information on the file is not exactly like what Gracenote is looking for, then it won't pull in the artwork. Now, I'm pretty meticulous with my collection and it's all properly named so I don't see what the problem could be. I also read somewhere that you can turn Gracenote normalization off and it will use your embedded file information instead. But it doesn't look like I have that option in ANY menu screens. Has anyone else run into this? And if you have, do you have a good solution? I'm going to play around with it some more, but at this point, I'm running out of ideas.
