Does anyone know if a bracket other than the windshield suction cup for a Garmin is out there. I have a Ford work truck and one fits in the console like it was made for it. My Sierra has nowhere in it to balance it. I hate putting it on the windshield.

With you on the windshield suction cup mounts, their adhesion can be iffy at times.. If you're not against having your Garmin sit on the dash there are bean bag mounts that sit on the dash, stay right where you put it and you can easily adjust your Garmin to any angle you want. Picked one up for the last Garmin I bought maybe 5 years ago. Best Buy didn't have them where I purchased the Garmin, picked up the bean bag mount on Amazon, E-bay probably has them too.

      See a lot of questions asked about this and not a lot of set info on the upgrade.  Hope this helps even anyone trying to set it up.
       
      **READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH ALL VIDEOS PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING PURCHASING OR INSTALLATION**
       
      Apple CarPlay / Android Auto functionality is not supported in any 2014-2015 (Many 2016) Silverado/Sierra’s. This is due to neither application being available from Google or Apple when these vehicles being built, therefore not an available option during these model years. The following instructions are designed to simplify the process as much as possible.
       
      Three things are required for this upgrade (ONE) Radio Module, (ONE) HMI Module, and (ONE) USB Hub 2016+.
       
      Search around for the modules, they are available for purchase from many different locations. EBay, totaled vehicles, junkyards, or other various websites to find them. AGAIN, if the part numbers are not listed below DO NOT purchase them.
       
       It is highly encouraged to not try and cut corners with purchasing part numbers of modules not listed as they cannot be flashed to work properly.
       
      **DISCONNECT THE BATTERY PRIOR TO INSTALLING FRESHLY UPDATED MODULES**
       
      TOOLS REQUIRED:
      Trim Removal tool
      10 mm Socket
      7 mm Socket
       
      PARTS REQUIRED
      USB HUB P/N 13519224 (BLACK) P/N 13509943 (WHITE)
       
      HMI Module
      USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH NAVIGATION. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N.

      Once acquiring the parts you can now send them to be flashed. These modules will be flashed to your VIN and will then be plug and play. Copy the link and follow the prompts.

      If you have followed all the directions up and to this point, select yes for hardware match. You can chose if you would like the maps updated on your NAV if you so choose. You will be emailed your order number from WAMS, this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. You will be required to ship your parts either FedEx or UPS, they will not accept packages from USPS. You will need to write your order number on the box to ensure your order is properly handled. Turn around is approximately one week from shipment to return. ONLY ship your (ONE) Radio Module and (ONE) HMI Module. Maintain your USB Hub.
       
      Once you have received your parts from WAMS you can begin installation. Disconnect your battery prior to installation.
       
      To install the radio module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2MYuuyqLrs. For the purpose of this install start the video at 1:00. Stop the video at 2:04, the radio module is visible with a green connector on the far left. Simply begin disconnecting all of the connectors plugged into the module, once all are removed you can slide the module out of the dash. It is retained only by the tension of the cables plugged into it. Replace with your new module, you can now continue the video and finish putting the dash back together. Stop the video at 4:10.
       
      To install the HMI Module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFe2gwlOsD4. Stop the video at 2:00. The module being described behind the crossbar is what you are replacing. Remove all connectors, the module is retained with a plastic clip on top. Installing the module along with the glove box, is self explanatory.
       
      Take note of the plastic tabs on the sides of the USB Hub you are preparing to install. Those tabs can be depressed with a dental pick and gradually removed out of place. Once removed, disconnect the harness and reconnect. Installation is now complete. You can now reconnect your battery and start your vehicle. Initial start up might take a few seconds to initialize, and temperature defaulting to 32 degrees is normal. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay require hardwire connection, so to test functionality it needs to be connected to the newly installed USB hub.    
       
      MVI Inc (https://www.gm-navigation.com/) offers kits and other customization options if the above is not something you feel comfortable acquiring on your own.
       
      Hope this helps, should be pretty cut and dry. There might be other methods, but this was the cheapest I discovered. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

      Quick how to and review of the Cab Over America wireless cab lights.
       
      Link to parts: https://caboveramerica.com/
       
      The parts: For just under $400 you get a set of 5 battery powered wireless cab lights.  Each light consists of 4 parts; the aluminum mounting plate, rubber gasket, LED/PV panel module, and the top lens.  The top lenses can be had in clear, amber or smoke.  In our case, we went with smoke. 

       
      You also get two remotes to control the lights.  Overall the quality is high and what I would expect from something in this price range.  You also get some small lenses that can be place inside the cab lights to change the lights to amber while still using a clear or smoke outer lens.  Lastly you are given a Cab Over America tape measure.  We laid the tape out but ended up using a tape measure for all measurements. 
       
      The install:
      First step was to decide on how you will be playing out the lights.  We went with the two edge lights and 3 concentrated in the middle.  Others may go with the even spacing all the way across, completely up to you. Here's a test fit. Also shows you the clearance with the shark fin.  Remove the two nuts, lens, LED, and gasket so you are just left with the aluminum bracket with screw posts.  It was easier to measure and mount the brackets without all the extra parts.  We also bent the brackets a bit to fit the counter of the roof in the location they'd be installed.  Here they are laid out in position.  Wipe down the front 10" of your cab with Isopropyl alcohol. This is to prep the surface for better adhesion. Starting with the cab light nearest to the shark fin, measure 4.5" up from the windshield and 4.5" from the rain gutter to the front stud.  This will locate the front mounting post.  The rear post of the drivers side cab light should also be 4.5" from the gutter. Using a marker to make temp markings so when you remove the tape backing you can guide the bracket into position.  Remove the tape backing, heat up the double stick tape, and install using your guidelines. Repeat for the passenger side light. Find the center of the windshield, measure 4.5" straight back, this will locate the front stud of the center light.  Make sure the mounting bracket is straight and mark guide lined with a marker, remove tape backing, heat up the tape, then install. For the side center lights, we offset the lights 7.5" from the center light centerline.  Measuring 7.5" from the center light's stud to the side light studs we were able to locate the side lights. Both the front and back studs of the side cab lights are 7.5" from the respective studs on the center light bracket.  After all the metal brackets were installed the rubber gaskets were reinstalled, LED modules installed, and the lenses were screwed down. Last step was to sit back and enjoy the lights.  They look great with the switchback mirrors!  
      Here is a video of the install if you don't like reading!
       
      Thanks!

      New to the forum and thought I would inquire if anyone has some advice in regards to a starting problem I am having.  Thank you for reading this.  
      For starters, the SUV is a 2009 GMC Yukon XL SLT 5.3L SFI Flex Fuel (120K miles and oil change light is on, changed oil but have not reset light indicator as I have been playing with starting issue).
      For the last few weeks it has had a strange intermittent starting issue.  When you turn the key to the acc position the battery reads correctly and matches my meter with all electronics working.  However, when I would turn the key to the next position (ignition).  It would just click.  So I would turn it off and then retry with no luck starting.  When held in full ignition position it would click and click and then start.  as long as you held it in place for a good 5-10 seconds. 
      I checked the battery again and ran tests on it.  Brand new battery and no issues. 
      I checked battery cables and grounds with no red flags.  
      I removed the starter relay and jumped 30/87 and confirmed the starter itself has no issue.  The starter kicks on and sounds good.
      Yesterday, I went to start it with a fully charged battery and it would only click.  Doors would try and lock and unlock during the process but it would not start.  
      I got out of the vehicle and locked the doors.  use the FOB to remote start and the vehicle started with no issues.  
      I got into the SUV and tried the key, and it started right up.  Started it a number of times with the parking brake on, parking brake off with no luck in recreating the problems.  However, I feel that it's only getting worse with no real answers and no way to recreate the problems or how to solve.
      Which is why I am here.   I have googled quite a bit and read a number of posts here, but no real solution.  So I am hoping someone can point me in the correct direction. I love troubleshooting but this is bit annoying.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
