  1. My iPhone has the volume turned down ever time I connect to my 2019 GMC AT4. I had the phone checked and all diagnostics came back fine. You have to manually adjust the volume on your phone when entering or leaving the truck. to avoid missing calls. Spent numerous hours trying to figure this out. It works fine in my wife's Ford Explorer. So, I took it back to the dealer to find it is a know problem and GMC has no updates to fix it. Has anyone experienced this and found a resolution, as I am confident after speaking to GMC that it a program coding issue for them.
  2. I paired my iPhone 6 to my 2015 Silverado. I can receive text messages, but I cannot send a reply message or reply with a phone call using MyLink. I paired my business phone (Samsung Galaxy) and I was able to receive text messages and reply with either text message or call via MyLink. Is anyone else having issues with the iPhone and texting with MyLink?
  3. I don't know where to begin...I haven't had any OS updates for my iPhone X in over a month, the last software/firmware updates for the truck were done last Fall, so last week...the phone is hooked up via USB & Blutooth. This is normally how I have been hooking up the phone to my truck since I bought my truck over 3 years ago. If I disconnect the USB and run the phone straight Blutooth, music will play through the trucks stereo system. As soon as I hook up the USB cable, the infotainment system will display what song is being played and all related information...but you will only hear the music playing from the ear speaker of the phone. If you unplug the USB cable again, the infotainment system will want you to select the Blutooth media and the song will pick up where it left off when the USB cable was plugged in. Things I've tried... Resetting the phone and the Infotainment system for a fresh sync. Tried a different USB cable and all USB ports in the truck. Checked every setting on the truck and on the iPhone. Anyone got a clue what to do? -TheImpalaMan

  5. If you saw my comment in our Live Review of a 2014 Silverado over the last week, you know that I ran into some issues trying to listen to Bluetooth audio through my phone. I've since confirmed using some diagnostic apps that using multiple devices running Android 4.2.2 and 4.3, only the left channel is played through the MyLink system. What we can't figure out is... why?? Is there anyone else with these new trucks that has tried Bluetooth audio streaming? How is it working for you? Also, what device, OS, and OS version are you running? What version of MyLink is installed on your truck? Here Devices we tried Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2 Nexus 7 running Android 4.3 This Silverado was running MyLink software "version" 23174395 and we only heard audio from the left channel Any one with other Android and Apple devices that can try this out and let us know what happens?
  6. Hi All, New to the forum. Look forward to future discussion. I purchased a 2014 High Country yesterday. I've synced my iPhone 6 to MyLink and can use the truck's bluetooth compatibility for phone calls just fine. The issue arises when I want to play music. I have no songs on iTunes. All of my music is on Spotify. The only option MyLink gives me in terms of listening to music is accessing my phone's iPod library (which doesn't exist). If I could play my Spotify music via the bluetooth connection or the USB cable I'd be totally happy. Please help!
  7. I have had the Pandora App on the MyLink work for me twice now but I cannot ever seem to figure out how or why (or replicate it). I am using an iPhone and I was under the impression that the app did not work with iPhone but I have gotten it to work twice now. I was just going to post and see if anyone else on here has figured out how. The only thing I remember from the two times that was the same is that I had closed and reopened the Pandora App on my phone. I cannot remember if I was plugged in or BT both times, I believe I was plugged in this last time.
  8. Can anyone tell me if the iPhone x will work with the wireless charger in my 2016 2500 Sierra? How about the 2017 or 2o18 trucks?
  9. I just got a 2017 Silverado 2500 WT for work and its got the very basic radio with the small screen. No bluetooth, no nothing. I connect my phones (ive tried two) to the usb port in the center console and every song has moments that sounds like a CD skipping I have tried different sources within my phones too, its not my music. The interface lags and is really slow too. Does anyone know if a software update or anything that will fix this issue?
  10. Anyone know of a compatible charging case for the iPhone 7 Plus to work on the charging pad? All I can find are cases for iPhone 6S and older models. Thanks for any help ahead of time!
  11. [2015 Chevrolet Silverado1500 LTZ 4WD Z71 Crew] With regard to the Chevy MyLink... Currently I am unable to get MyLink to follow voice commands with "My Media". This includes both my iPod and my Droid Maxx phone. I've tried connecting with both USB cord and via BlueTooth. Voice Commands seem to work fine with Phone and Radio commands, but I can't get MyLink to play any song, artist, album, etc. with My Media commands. It is as if MyLink cannot make the connection from what i'm saying to what is available to play even though my "music list has loaded". Both my iPod and my phone will play music just fine, I am just not able to utilize any of the voice commands. Anyone else had any similar problems? Any advice?
  12. So I purchased this Silverado back in 2014 and have had nothing but problems with the MyLink system. My biggest problem is that my phone (iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 7) all connect to it just fine 40% of the time. And the other 60% without changing setting it will suddenly connect but not recognize it as a phone, so I can not make calls or receive them unless I turn my phone onto handheld mode. I've tried talking to GM (obviously my warranty is expired at this point) but GM ran me in circles for a year and never helped me, and I can't seem to find any other info on it. I have a WT2 with the smaller IO4 Mylink and can't afford the $1,200.00 upgraded version. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Fixes tried before posting: turning off truck and restarting, turning off phone and restarting, resetting Bluetooth on both truck and phone, Forgetting and relearning devices on both truck and phone, bashing head on dashboard None seem to work and it appears to be completely random. It's been going on for the entire 3 years I've owned it and no one seems to know what to do. We even checked it on the scanner (Snap-On wireless).
  13. I just traded my 08 Sierra Denali for a 2017 Denali with All-Terrain wheels and no running boards. I have an iPhone 6s and I can't seem to get Text notifications to work and when the phone is connected via bluetooth it eats all the sounds that the phone makes for all sorts of email and app notifications, the only sound I get is if a get a call. Is it possible to have the phone paired and still hear all the sounds the phone would be making if it was not paired? To add: it does not matter if the phone or truck makes the sound, I just want to hear them.
  14. I just purchased a 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 (my first pickup) and I have what I hope is a few simple questions about the radio. 1. How can I stop the radio from turning on when the truck is started? 2. When my iPhone auto connects to Bluetooth it automatically starts playing music. Any way to stop that? Sorry for the simple questions. I’m sure I’ll have more important ones down the road (literally) lol. Thanks
  15. DISCLAIMER: This is a repost of the post I just submitted in the Technology Sub-Forum. I wasn't sure which to post to, so I submitted to both. MODS: Please feel free to delete/move either one. Greetings everyone, First off, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I'm what you would call a "tinkerer", "hacker", "maker", or "enthusiast". I'm also recently returned to the GM/Chevy Stock after taking a 12+ year detour into the world of AMC (Jeeps), and Volkswagen. I'm a father of three, and I work in the Industrial Automation Industry (I teach it). In my spare time I build or "fix" things. After repairing my 2011 Golf TDI for the "nTH" time in a year (only 60K on it and had to spend close to $8K worth in repairs, in one year, due to poor mechanical designs (A/C Failed three times (compressors and RCV, 30K, 45K, 62K), plastic radiator mount broke (killing A/C lines), DPF failed twice (32K, 58k), EGR system failed, Electrical + Window Regulators failed at 30K, I had enough of "German Engineering". I was brought into this world riding in a GM (Olds), grew up with Chevy for my entire childhood, but at 18 I bought my "first" car, a 1985 Jeep Wagoneer. I loved that Jeep, but I drove my grandfather's 1996 Chevy Cheyenne every time the Jeep was down for maintenance (I even learned to drive stick in it.) In the last 12 years I've owned 18 Vehicles (+/- 2), but just recently purchased my first GM in all that time. A 2009 Chevy Suburban LTZ (fully loaded). And I gotta say, I feel like Jake "Joliet" Blues (Blues Brothers) when he "got the message" during the Sermon w/ James Brown. I have never loved a truck so much, at least as an adult. Even with all it's problems. I bought it used, 2 owners, 138K. In the first week and a half I put 1500 miles on it just to "get a feel" for it. Big surprise, the dealer lied/hid a bunch of problems, (intermittent start, faulty air suspension sensors, faulty A/C Blender Flaps, and a few other issues that did not present during the test drive, but showed up less than 24 hours after leaving the lot). Even with all the issues, they still don't overshadow the benefits of this truck. I truly am smitten. This brings us to the topic at hand. Like I said earlier, I like to "fix" things, and the very first thing I found wrong with the truck (besides the mechanical problems), was the input/output opitons of the UQA (Denso DW468100-6601) and lack of Bluetooth + A2DP in the On* VCIM. Also, the Rear Seat Entertainment + Rear Audio Controls only allowed for RCA/Composite Video inputs with no Steering wheel controls, keep rubbing me the wrong way. I understand that this vehicle is 2009, and A2DP was not common in vehicles until 2010/2011, as well as the whole "Connected Car" Infotainment sectors were still pretty niche markets. It doesn't change the fact that in the last few cars I've had, they all had A2DP capability, which I became addicted to. I hate wires in the cab, and I hate distractions while driving. So I sought out a way to fix that. Much to the disapproval of my wife, in the first week I had the head unit torn apart down to the last PCB, the center console was in the garage, and for the last 2 weeks we've been having to commute 300 miles a week with no music. That all changed today. The truck is full reassembled (for now), and it's pretty much back to stock. The only permanent change so far is replacing the rear 12v Aux Output to a dual 5V USB port for the kids' iPods. My workbench however is littered with prototype RGB/TTL + ARM CoMs, deadbugged TI VD231 Transceivers, ESP8266s and an Old 3G T-Mobile USB Dongle.... Eventually, it's all going to be built in to one PCB. Over the past two weeks I've managed to rig up a system that allowed me to stream audio (Pandora) and Video, as well as have steering wheel controls of the Audio, all using the stock head unit and wiring harness. Here comes the feeler. Would anyone be interested in a kit that allowed all of the above in almost any 2006+ GM vehicle? I did some rough cost analysis, and to hit good Benefit-Cost Ratio, I would have to sell the units for about $100 +/- $10 + S&H. That's at a low quantity of 50 units, and about a 45 day lead time once orders are placed. I'm almost done with the CAD work on the PCB, and I have enough parts on hand to build 3 "complete" prototypes. I'll post a video soon, once I get back from a trip this coming weekend. I did a quick search of similar products on the market but wasn't really able to find one that did everything I can do, but if anyone knows of something that can do the same thing, please let me know. I don't want to duplicate efforts or hurt another potential entrepreneur. I basically just wanted to say hello, and pop the question while I had some free time (and was riding the excitement of my own personal breakthrough). Oh, and one last thing. Once the items are finalized/produced, I am going to release the entire source code, schematics, and build-instructions as open source hardware. Either GPLv2 or BSD. This way, anyone else who wants to build their own, or improve on my design, can. I'm only keeping it semi-secret at the moment to protect a potential marketability avenue. Anyone who is in my field could probably build the same thing just going off the current description and a basic understanding of automotive communication protocols. Thank you, and have a great day.
  16. Hoping someone has had the same issue and can help me fix it. I have an issue where even if I am listening to an FM station or XM radio it switches to my iPhone music anytime I unlock my phone to look at it. This is very annoying as I have to switch back every time only to have it switch back the next time I unlock my phone.
  17. After upgrading to IOS 9.2, I am having issues with text message notifications and phone contact lists (mainly the favorites). I was fine with the original release of IOS 9 and this phone, and all features worked perfectly, but I have just now realized that after upgrading to IOS 9.2 I am having issues I was not having before. Background: 2015 Silverado LTZ with 8" My Link w/ Nav Phone: IPhone 6 running IOS 9.2 When I first got my iPhone 6, which was running either IOS 9.0 or 9.1 (not sure what it had to start), all phone --> truck features worked perfectly. Siri eyes free allowed me to dictate text messages to my phone, ask minor siri questions, control my music app on the phone etc. I would also get new text message notifications on the MyLink screen when I received a new text message while in the truck and I could have the truck read it back to me. I upgraded to IOS 9.2 and after just noticing the other day that when going to the phone directory in the console screen, I can no longer see my "Favorite" contacts list though it still shows me my recent call list and my entire contact list. Frustrating issue #1. Now I just noticed that when I get a new text messages I am no longer getting the text notifications on the truck's screen like I used to. I confirmed the Bluetooth settings for the device are correct; the allow notifications setting is enabled as is show favorites. I have also tried forgetting the MyLink USB device and repairing my phone but it did not resolve my issues. Anyone else having issues with IOS 9.2 on your iPhone, and if so, have you found a fix for it? Very frustrating when you update your phone to get better security and they break core features, especially when these features affect my ability to enjoy my trucks features. I had been loving how seamlessly all my phone/.truck features had been working and I'm really bummed this is jacked up now. IOS 9.2 is the latest version of IOS available so I can try upgrading to another version to see if that resolves it. Help! Thanks folks.

  19. This isn't really that difficult to do, but I thought I would post some pics of an iPhone mount/charger that I installed today. It seems to be a pretty unique product made by a company called Fuse Chicken. The model I used is the Bobine Auto: http://www.fusechicken.com/products/bobineauto It holds its form to some degree already, and it seems very tough. The metallic color seems to match the accents of our interiors. I used a USB extension cable which I routed from inside the console to right underneath the cupholders. I may drill some holes in the console to make it more hidden later, but I didn't want to modify anything right now. There is a nice wire channel that runs along the sides of the center console on the inside, and that is where I ran part of the Bobine cable. I then ran it straight up next to the USB panels in the front. There are two adhesive clamps that add some stability. I drove around with it some tonight, and it seems to hold fairly well. I prefer the iPhone's navigation system as compared to the stock system, and this allows me to glance at the map and at notifications and alerts without really taking my eyes of the road for long.

  21. I am enjoying the new truck but I have a problem with MYLink and my IPhone 5 and it's applicaitons. I noticed the other day when I got a text message on my phone (IPhone 5) while driving my truck the other day I never heard the phone give me a text message ring. It did however vibrate as it is programmed up to do both at the same time. At first it thought this was no big deal as I really don’t care if I get a text message while I drive because I don’t text and drive at the same time. Today I wanted to try out how the navigation on my IPhone 5 worked with the new truck and it left me very disappointed. I first tried Google maps then I tried the IPhone own map product and they both reacted the same. What I found out was that once I put in a location to navigate to it would show me my route and it would show me each turn I needed to make however the IPhone voice turn by turn was silent. That is correct I never heard any instructions on when to turn. So, I tried a couple of things and one of things I tried that made it work was to turn off the Bluetooth on my IPhone then I got voice commands telling me when to turn. This is unacceptable as I need both to work together not separately. Next I tried having my phone connected by Bluetooth and changing the connection to media. Then all of a sudden my Google Maps voice turn came thru the system with no problems. My text sounds came thru and it seemed as it all worked. However once I changed the source back to FM, AM, or XM Google map voice and text message tone no longer worked again. I am surprise that Chevy (MYLink) have not found out about this problem earlier and would have a fix out to the public real quick. Then when I was on vacation I was talking with my sister who has an 2013 Impala with MyLink and a Droid phone she was having the same problem. Really...why can't Chevy (MYLink) get this bug fixed?
  22. When I plugs In my iphone to USB it don't show the album picture just says iPod in the square that's there
