  1. A couple of weeks ago my voice commands stopped working to dial phone numbers by names in the directory. It will dial numbers if I call the numbers, it will find streets in navigation, but it won't pick up names in my phone directory. Anyone else having this problem? It answers back with "Pardon" or "who would you like to call".
  2. We sell these magnetic cell phone mounts at our car audio shop, and they are the best. I have them in 3 of my vehicles, and are fairly inexpensive! I can’t upload more pics, but it comes with a couple different sizes of magnetic ‘stickers’ that you can attach to your phone or case, or even sandwich it in between the phone and case like I do, and it will still stick to the mount. I always use adhesive promoter from 3M or an equivalent product (like you should ALWAYS do when applying 2 sided tape to any install), and it provides a super strong hold, even at -30- plus 40 Celsius. Just wanted to share a great product that a lot of people don’t know about. I hated having to operate CarPlay and having nowhere to keep my phone. They also make vent clip styles, and mounts for portable GPS devices as well.
  3. I have a 2016 Silverado 1500 crew cab with the I05 radio. Took it to the dealer for pairing issues and they replaced the HMI and updated firmware support from 3B020 to 4B012. This solved the pairing issue that I was experiencing of having to repair the device every time I entered the vehicle. Now I found that if I am on a call when entering the vehicle The call will go muted and I have to hang up and recall instead of the call transferring in the truck. (Even though it use to before the update.) Took it back to the dealer they seem to think after talking to the GMC engineer it is a software issue in the update that has disabled it. They have the same truck on the lot with an I05 radio. They made sure the phone would transfer the call getting into the vehicle with no issues. Then they applied the updated software and same thing happened the calls will no longer transfer to the vehicle. Anyone know of a fix for this or a way to roll back the software as they say they are unable to load previous versions. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
  4. Is there a cheap way to upgrade existing mylink with one that has apple car play? All of the ways I've seen are over $1000.
  5. [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?
  6. 2016 Silverado, Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 Phone connects to truck via bluetooth every time with no issues. When receiving a call, it will always ring thru the truck and display on the cluster & myLink screen but SOMETIMES after answering the call volume will be out of the phone speaker only. During this time, the call will still show active on both displays and the radio volume will be silent. Look at the phone, it shows connected to bluetooth and no matter what I do on the truck or phone I cannot get the volume back to the truck. The hangup button on the steering wheel will still end the call. Once the call is ended, the radio volume comes back. Same issue when making a call, again, the issue is intermittent. Doesn't matter if I make the call from the phone or using the voice commands, audio has reverted back to the phone on occasion both ways of making a call. I always answer/end calls with the buttons on the steering wheel, the phone always connects to the truck, and the call audio problem is intermittent with no obvious cause. Anyone experience this and have a fix?
  7. 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).
  8. I noticed on when using my bluetooth phone with my 2015 2500hd CC that phone pairs up nicely and works great after first turning it on. However after some time has passed without using, it won't dial, no audio passes as I can dial number on the phone while bluetoothed and truck shows it is connected and I can read my contacts from the truck. Also I never get any text messages at anytime. This same phone and my 2010 GMC Sierra never had a problem. Any suggestions ? Thank you Ken
  9. 2015 ltz z71, normally the truck will read or display text from my phone just fine, but when I get group messages or media, it will read through all of the coding of the message, for 5 minutes. Does anyone else have this problem? I have an android phone, maybe I need a new text app?
  10. I am having an intermittent issue with the bluetooth in my truck and curious if anyone else here is having/had a similar issue. I have an Android phone that is paired with the bluetooth system in the truck. I am able to make and receive nearly all calls as expected. Occasionally during the phone call (both inbound and outbound) the call will drop from the truck speakers/head unit (radio comes back on thru the speakers). If I look at the phone the call is still connected and if I change the output source on the phone from bluetooth to speaker or handset I can hear the caller again. I can not transfer the call in progress back to the truck. The person on the other end has no clue what happened. I thought that maybe the bluetooth connection is lost, but the indicator on the phone is still lit and after hanging up I can immediately make a new call via the truck system. Hope that makes sense, anyone else experience something similar??? **Edit....my truck is going in soon to have the seat frame replaced and I will see what they say... TIA Mark
