I have finally got around to finalizing the install of the OEM RSE system for my 2016 Silverado HD. This was the only option that I wanted that my pickup did not come with so I am extremely happy this is done and so is my son! I would like to give a BIG THANKS to Anthony and John at MVI (www.gm-navigation.com) as they are extremely knowledgeable and their customer service is top notch. I purchased MVI's in-dash Blu-ray and RSE kits along with the unlocked HMI module and added their HDMI input and third brake lamp camera with switch. The unlocked HMI is definitely worth the money over a Lockpick as you have full control while in motion and don’t have to worry about the Lockpick failing as I had 2 of 2 fail in my old 2010 Silverado. MVI supplied most of the parts though I did source a few parts from the dealer as I did vary a little from MVI's kit as I wanted the RSE controls in the center console which their current kit does not yet have but was told it is on their to-do list with many other projects. Their HDMI kit requires the RSE controls as you tap into those inputs. I removed one of the cigar lighter outlets in the front of the center console and mounted the HDMI input there. If you stick to their kit, the install is fairly simple IF you have a sunroof. Once again, MVI offers great customer service in case you do run into any glitches. They are also a vendor on here as well if you did not know.

 

NOTE: ***NON-SUNROOF VEHICLES***

You do need a new headliner if you don't have a sunroof as you need the mounting bracket for the screen which offsets the screen from of the original position of the overhead dome lamp leaving ts existing hole exposed. On sunroof vehicles, the dome lamp and screen use the sunroof frame to mount to and you just enlarge the existing dome lamp hole.

Some words in all of that might as well be a fore in language for me. I started to use Mvi for radio upgrade but went Kenwood to replace work truck radio.

Thanks!! If you do this and need help on how I varied from their kit, let me know. Hopefully you have a sunroof because the headliner wasn't cheap.

Unfortunately not... But been toying w idea of adding suede headliner, so this might be my perfect "excuse".

Perfect excuse!!! I've always wanted to do that as I love the Mercedes AMGs that have the suede. You'd definitely need to post pics if you do.

 

You've probably already thought of this but if they re-wrap your headliner, you should be able to cut the hole for the screen and have them fill the dome lamp hole with that piece and you wouldn't be able to tell. If you look closely at one of my pics, image 3, you can see where the dome lamp would go on the new headliner as it's almost "pre-stamped" to be cut at the factory. At the very least, if it was noticeable, it wouldn't be more than that. I considered having my headliner re-wrapped but no one remotely close to me does that so I just forked out the money for a new headliner which cost me $687 (wholesale).

 

A co-worker had his Dodge Dakota headliner wrapped in suede when I live in the DFW area by a local shop and it was around $450 with him pulling the headliner if my memory hasn't failed me. I imagine it'd only be a little more than that for a Silverado due to size. Just remember it's a tight fit squeezing the headliner through the left rear door. An extra hand would be extremely helpful in order not to tear/scratch the headliner, especially if suede. Good luck!

Hi new to the forum here. I have a 17 denali hd and want to do the rse install with the factory gear like you did. I want the rear rse inputs as well. Already talking with mvi about the kit. How did you stray away from theirs with the rear inputs. I want it all to look like it came from the factory.

First welcome to the forum! Lots of great knowledge can be found here. Don't be afraid to share some pics of that '17 Denali. Also hopefully my emails help and if have other questions, just let me know.

BlkSS, do you have any pictures of the wiring going to the RSE?  I have a 16 with Factory RSE and I'm considering adding HDMI input, but I'm wondering how the screen is wired to the factory unit.

I can get some pictures taken as that is one thing I forgot to take pictures of.  The screen itself is wired to the disc drive along with the inputs from the rear of the center console.  There is also a blue USB type cable that connects the overhead screen, the disc drive, the dash screen and the HMI if I remember correctly.  I don't know of other options out there however the HDMI input that I used from MVI is spliced into the RCA inputs that is on the back of the console so it inputs to the disc drive.  Since the screen is 720p, you won't have true HD resolution but since they are only 8" and 9.2", it doesn't matter IMO.  What I've used the input so far for, everything has looked great.  As of 2017, GM removed both the SD card input and the RCA input and now there is a factory HDMI input and 2 USB inputs on the back of the console.  If you've thought about installing the 2017 parts and harness, I don't recommend it as there are more changes than just those for the rest of the truck but someone else may have more input on that.  Once again, you don't get true HD resolution but it gives you the input so you can add modern devices/gaming consoles easier.  There is also an area that I tapped into for the power supply on the USB port on the input from MVI which is at the connector for the console harness where it connects to the dash harness.  If you purchase the HDMI input from MVI, they will have the wires labeled on where to splice into at or at the very least come with instructions on where to splice.  I may be able to take the console apart later today and get you pictures, at least sometime this weekend.

I'm trying to piece things together myself. For the past year Ive been trying to source the 17 HDMI input parts and find out if its possible to retrofit. But no one seems to know. 

 

Indiwork makes a plug n play HDMI input kit and also an android box that plugs into it. I'm trying to figure out if its possible to route the video from it to the RSE. That way I can use the hotspot and my DirecTV app on the rear screen for my son to watch.  Proformance Diesel has a preorder for an android setup for the mylink but I'm not sure how it's setup.

Depending on your phone, what I've done would display your phone on the screens but you'd still have to control everything on your phone and may need additional parts, i.e. MHL adapter etc.  I've been considering getting a Fire Stick or something to use with my HDMI input linked to my Wi-Fi and see if it would work seamlessly. 

 

I would like to see those setups in person.  I've seen video of the android setup that Performance Diesel is preordering and definitely want it!!! 

 

Based on what you're trying to do, I didn't take any pictures as I thought this would be more beneficial to what you're trying to do as I wrapped my harness back up and you can see anything beneficial. 

 

From the 12-pin connector for the rear console controls/inputs, these are the circuits I spliced into:

 

Pin #4 - White Wire - Right Aux Audio

Pin #5 - Yellow Wire - Left Aux Audio

Pin #6 - Yellow Wire - Aux Video

Pin #11 - Brown Wire - Aux Audio Common

Pin #12 - Bare Wire - Aux Video Common

 

I spliced in accordingly for my HDMI input.  I assume you would need a new connector for the 2017 input, but you may be able to re-pin your harness accordingly and get it working, hopefully.  I'm not sure if both the USB inputs would be operation or only just one if you went that route though.  I can't find any wiring info for the 2017+ controls through my resources but someone who works for GM may be able to get you some info.  I would assume MVI would be able to find this info if you wanted to reach out to them.  There is also another vendor on here, pgamboa (Phil Gamboa) who I'm following as he is very knowledgeable and has done numerous things to his 2016 LT.  He may also be able to dig up some information on this.  Hopefully this helps you and if you get it working, definitely let me/us know.

...following. In my center console retrofit and circuit observations, I noticed a 2nd Aux Input. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure what this was for... it never dawned on me that this was for RSE. So while I closed the book on a use case for this 2nd Input, I might reopen it for some use cases. Thanks for the detailed info!

      Hey Forum,
       
      Regarding the oil drain plug on the 2014 5.3L, is anyone using aftermarket magnetic plugs?  What about a magnetic oil filter sleeve, or both?  Just curious because last weekend I changed the fluid in my front & rear differentials, and transfer case - all of which have magnetic plugs on them.  However, none of of them have filters so, I assume adding a magnetic drain plug or filter sleeve would not make much difference since that is what the oil filter is for.  Again, just curious to see everyone's thoughts!

      Chevrolet announced prices today for the new 2019 4500 HD Chassis Cab medium-duty truck. Prices will start at $48,465 including the $1,495 destination charge.

      “These new Silverado chassis cabs are a great addition to our lineup because we can now offer small businesses and large fleets a truck that can be upfitted to do many jobs including construction, utility and landscape work, tow truck operations, first responder calls and more,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “Chevrolet was obsessed with making these Silverado trucks easy to upfit, drive and own.”
       


      Chevy says the ultimate Chevrolet Silverado is the 6500HD, which is similar in size to the 4500HD and 5500HD but is rated to 22,900 pounds GVWR. “Bucket truck builders, fleet managers and many other customers told us they face a dilemma when their GVWR needs exceed 19,500 lbs.,” said John Schwegman, director of Commercial Product and Medium Duty at GM Fleet. “Some pay for expensive aluminum bodies to save weight so they can stay with a Class 5 chassis. Others may spend $10,000 or more to purchase a larger truck with much more GVWR than they need. The Silverado 6500HD gives them capability and protects their bottom line. It’s a great solution.”

      Here are the features of the new 2019 Silverado medium-duty line:
      -The Silverado will be available in 2WD and 4WD and will be powered by a Duramax 6.6-liter diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft. of torque and Allison transmissions with a Power Take Off (PTO) option.
      -The frame is designed with one-piece straight rails with no rivets or brackets on top to interfere with the mounting of custom-made bodies. There are no obstacles to work around helping to save time and money during the upfit process.
      -More frame lengths are offered compared with key competitors, which can help customers specify the exact truck to suit their needs.
      -The truck is designed to be easy to service, with a clamshell hood and a wheel cut of up to 50 degrees that can give technicians better engine access than trucks with conventional hoods.
      -Optional equipment includes a twin-tank fuel capacity of up to 65 gallons, a factory-installed air suspension and a full suite of available connectivity, including OnStar, Commercial Link and a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot.
       
      Look for the new Silverado medium-duty trucks at any one of Chevy's 400 commercial dealers late this year.
