I don't remember reading it anywhere, but most already know that the radio has a pause feature, but I found out the other day that if you pause it before turning the truck off, it will save it up to like an hour or so.  This might already be common knowledge.  I use it all the time as I listen to a lot of sports talk radio and I will pause before I have to run into the store quick or drop my daughter off at daycare. Then when I get back in the tuck, I can pick up where I left off and then skip through the commercials for awhile depending on how long it was paused.

I read all 29 pages of this thread...  here's what I would like to know:

Several people in here have mentioned how to turn Grade Assist Braking OFF.  I want to know how to turn it ON in my 2016 Z71

 

I drive in rush hour traffic down a significant hill daily.  I'd love for this feature to be able to be activated the same way I count with the low speed hill climb...   But sadly I don't see a way to do this.  I'd love to be able to be rolling at 20-35 mph down a grade in traffic and set the grade assist to that speed going down the 1.5 mile hill instead if constantly hitting my brakes.  Shifting into manual helps some, but by no means does it do what the grade assist.. but ONLY on hot days (I think brake temp factors into the equation).  I wish someone had a sequence to activate it on my commute daily!

 

Have a good day all.

Stay safe.

Lane change signaling. Tap, three clicks and off. Just found it after five years. LOL

And when you’re in tow/haul it goes 6x then off.

I'm pretty sure my 2012 Silverado did that, even my 2009 Pontiac G5 might have. In fact I don't think I've had a vehicle newer then the G5 that hasn't done that.

Holy crap!  THANK YOU.  I will try this tomorrow.  This is not in my manual, but I will definitely give it a try!  THIS is what this forum is all about!

I believe this feature was only for 2014-2015. I think when they added Android Auto and HD radio they removed the recording.

I don't know if this has been reported but I just discovered that I when I am listening to a podcast through Bluetooth I can tap the left paddle to skip forward and back without having to tap the screen.

Recently discovered with my Amazon Echo, I can say "Alexa...tell Chevrolet to start my truck"
I, then, get a response asking for my PIN, once I speak to the Echo with my PIN, it responds "Starting your Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab" and, then, the truck starts up.

Also, I can say "Alexa... tell Chevrolet to stop my truck" and get a response "Stopping your Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab." and, it stops.
Kinda cool, I think! :)
