If you have the HUD with built in Navigation you can obviously display the directions through the HUD.  Unfortunately, if you prefer WAZE for directions you cannot display the WAZE directions through the HUD.  However, if you set up your destination with the built in Nav first you can then go through Android Auto and also set up the destination in WAZE to display on the center digital display.  Basically , you have 2 Navigation's running at the same time.  You have the advantage of the directions showing on the HUD and also getting the traffic, hazards, police updates from WAZE.  On long trips, WAZE has saved me a number of times in avoiding major backups.

Thought I would share a picture of the GMC Tailgate Handle I added to my RST.

Nice idea. Makes those stake pocket holes obsolete.

Nice!  Where did you get it?  Do you have a part number?

I ordered the handle, bracket and bolts from the GMC Dealer and installed it in 5 minutes. I don’t have the part # but I am sure they can hook you up.54FFA4B5-CA65-4982-AD56-0437AF76FA21.thumb.jpeg.ffc9338caad580fc906fcb4b6193d941.jpeg

Picked up my Trail Boss Thursday and did a road trip to the states Friday. Cool that when you switch the units the speedometer dial and DIC convert to MPH.

 

Coming from a 2017 F150 and it didn’t do that. Only thing I miss about the F150 is the big gas tank.

 

Ohhh and I miss the console shift as well.

The truck will detect if your trailer's light is malfunctioning and tell you which to check accordingly. Another big this is the truck will automatically engage parking brake if you're loading up the trailer and rock the truck a bit.  I found this out as I was rocking my boat trailer back and forth just a little to get the wheel chock out, as I was doing this I heard the brake on the truck engaging.

Another small but nice change I noticed. On my 2016 the oil fill was a screw on cap on the valve cover. My 2019 has a filler tube that is high over valve cover and it is level so a funnel sits on it level. Much easier and less messy.  🌲🌲🌲

Do you have a picture? I would love to see this.

It actually took me a few seconds...i'm slow today. LMAO.

 

This also made me sad b/c it reminds me i'm about to drop some money to get the cam phasers replaced on my F-150 so I can get rid of it.

Your parking brake will disengage when you press the gas pedal.

Sorry IMO they're all trash. They're annoying AF in stop and go traffic or when you stop at a stop sign for two seconds and it shuts off and turns right back on again and for the 4% fuel mileage savings they say you'll get I'll pass. It's the dumbest feature they've come out with on new vehicles in a long long time...
