Intellilink MyLink Open Source Software, Apps, etc

Recommended Posts

Just remove unit from behind glove box and ship it to them. Think you need a 7mm nut driver and the wait took about 8 days for me in Florida.

Can this one mirror the screen on the phone? I did some research on these a few weeks ago and found one that streams the exact phone image, which would allow the display of Google maps as well as email, youtube etc...

I've got an aftermarket pioneer receiver in my Subaru and it will allow most all apps to be displayed and used on the screen in dash with their app radio stuff. I have used google maps, iTunes, pandora, escort radar live, and waze on it without a hitch. It utilizes a cord of some type, so the phone must be plugged in for it to work. Really hoping something like this can be done in our trucks as well!

I'm sorry, I live in LA and drive a lot of places, but I just don't see $600 in utility to have my phone mirrored on the truck screen. I don't use NAV more than maybe once a month. I don't text in my truck. I don't need to read text messages in my truck. I don't need to use my phone to start my truck, since my remote works fine. I'd rather have a new high grade stock for one of my shotguns than any of this stuff.

I've had a deck that allowed me to mirror and used arunchained on my android phone. The novelty was cool, but it was really not needed and grew old. Not worth all the time and money I invested into it. So long as I can play anything on the deck off of my media devices I'm fine with that.

The CUE/Intellilink systems are based off the same core programming that Apple uses. Don't hold me to this but i think it's Linux based. Working for a dealer I can tell you there are far more issues with Android phones and functionality than there are Apple products. However, I do know that in order to get "full" functionality with an Apple product they tell you it should be connected to the vehicle via usb. I've played around with my system quite a bit and found that to be true. I still run into issues at times and just like a computer a simple reboot or restart of the system and try again usually gets things working again. It's not perfect but it's way better than some other car manufacturers systems.

I was just at my dealership the other day and asked for a MyLink update. They told me none is available, and they don't get a lot of people asking.

I've found that there is a delay switching tracks and XM channels with the steering wheel. Using the touchscreen/radio buttons seem to be faster.

I've long wondered why I can't add a source (My iPod, an SD card, etc.) as a favorite on the bottom. You can only favorite songs (who really does that?) and albums. If I want to pan quickly between an XM channel and what I was listening to on my iPod, I have to keep hitting the media button over and over again. Seems a stupid oversight.

The XM weather map is pretty useless if I can't zoom in any closer than the entirety of New England.

Lucky for me I'm a software engineer with embedded skills and I could probably crack the module open and tinker with all this stuff myself. I just haven't desired to rip apart my new truck just yet.

Oh, and they did have a page for doing MyLink updates via USB. I think it was for the Malibu or Cruze, and they pulled that page down. Also stories are indicating that the GM App Store is having "issues" and this makes me seriously doubt we'll ever see it hit the light of day. If it does, it'll be years from now and conveniently won't support our vehicles. Roped in on a promise and then realizing it's a lie. Thanks GM!

The weather info is through XM I'd imagine.

It is with subscription

Gm abandoned the gm app store idea and went with Apple and Android car play. There will not be apps to add to a 2014/15 intelilink radio

That would be something if apps could be made available not through GM... Just look at how Android has changed computing... When the iPhone was new, androids were more or less a joke as competition. Open source turned them into what it is today!

Well, there a bunch of viruses for Android but it is open source....

a bunch ??? Maybe one case ... and it was fixed the very next update... it was more like a system breach than a real virus.

      I have a 2005 Sierra 1500 with a blown gt5/g80 and a 2004 Silverado 1500 parts truck with a gt4. Just wondering if everything would be the same if I were to swap them or not

      Just wanted to post on here, as I have seen no less than a thousand posts with questions about the 6L80E, specifically about the power threshold of a stock unit. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab Standard Bed stock 3.42 gears stock drive shaft stock 20" rims/tires 6.2L fully forged top/bottom end "Armageddon Twin Nagasaki's" (GT3582R's) e-boost 2 gauge Z06/LT4 fuel system 365lph in-tank Armageddon fuel pump QTP exhaust cut-outs and laid down 965rwhp/850 rwtq on a mustang dyno with 18psi on 116 race fuel (cut-outs open). I say all of this because the stock transmission detonated the 4-5-6 shaft (intermediate hub) near the splines. I took it to a "race shop" that said they would upgrade as much as they could; and was told at the time, there were limited aftermarket parts available for the 6L80E. This was mid 2018 with less than 10K miles on the truck and about 500 miles on the engine/turbo build and I discovered that was not entirely true. I drove the truck after their work,  with "spirited road driving" while the roads were wet no less. Long story short; they f'd me and I detonated the 4-5-6 stock intermediate shaft again within 100 miles and no traction at all. They apparently replaced all parts that were broken with stock parts! Moving on, I took my truck to a different shop and researched my a** off and found PATC Transmissions. I had a warm and fuzzy after speaking with them and ordered the Phoenix Level 4 Master Rebuild kit among a few other minor accoutrements and re-tuning of my TCM by Mike from Century Automotive. It is now APR 2019 and I am about 1 1/2 weeks away from having the my billet planetary gear mailed to me; for the new, more reputable shop in my area to install all of this PATC bada**ery. If anyone is truly interested, I will post new info once I put the new Phoenix Master Rebuild kit through the ringer with the full weight/horsepower/torque of my particular application...I hope this helps if there are some lost souls out there that may be headed down the same long. hard. road. of a "full send" like myself! Please post if you have questions/comments/concerns; as I have "been there done that and forgot the t-shirt" with the L86/6L80E so far.

      Got my SLT ceramic coated. The product is called QP-ON. Turned out pretty good! Debating getting 3m wrap on the front end. So expensive!

      Sold my 2015 Silverado a few weeks ago and bought a new GMC Sierra SLT with the z71 package and the 6.2L v8! 
      Had the camper shell moved over and sold the Silverado to my dad.
      It's been a great change so far. Nicer interior so my wife and daughter enjoy it. It's much quieter with the active noise cancellation, and the thing just SCOOTS! 

      My 5.3 that i had before was modded and would move pretty quick but this 6.2 just puts it TO SHAME.
      Installed an AFE Momentum GT Intake on it a few days ago and it's even better.
      Just cracked 1000 miles over the weekend and it's already better on gas mileage, ride quality and everything in between than the silverado was. 

      Very excited for the modifications to come. 
       
      Looking to add some fox coilovers to all 4 corners in the next week or so, which will level it out and lift the front end.
      Will then upgrade to 10 ply tires, probably a good bit taller than stock. (thinking about cooper at3 XLT's currently in probably 275/65R20 or 285/60R20)
      Then planning to put airbags on the back for towing. 

      Still undecided on exhaust setup, but will plan to do that and probably tune it in the future as well. 
       
      Anyways, heres a pic of the truck when i picked it up. i'll post some pics of the intake after installation as well.

      First post but following for a while now, I was wondering if anyone on her has done, or has seen a set of aftermarket Silverado headlights in a Sierra? I have a 2012 Sierra and I like the look of some of the Silverado headlights a lot better than the ones I have now, just want to change it up a bit and was wondering if anyone new if they we able to just be bolted in normally or if there was a conversion to make it possible?
