Heads up Display Chevy vs. GMC

Recommended Posts

I have a 2019 GMC Denali Ultimate.  I believe I have the most up to date software in 803.  I was at my Chevy dealership with a friend and he was driving a High Country and I noticed the Heads up Display showed audio information and other information when changing channels, etc.  My Denali does not do that and I wondered if anyone else knew or saw that the same?  Not to say this bad, but would the Silverado have additional features the Sierra would not?  I can't believe the Denali would not have "all" the possible features considering one is paying more for it, but from what I have seen, this information is not shown on the GMC's.  I have brought this item up previous as those features are shown on GMC's website when advertising features of the Sierra and mentioned it to my dealer but they say there is no way they can find out from General Motors.  Can anyone confirm if their Sierra/Silverado shows audio information on their Heads Up Display?  Thank you in advance.

I have a chevy High country and it doesn't show any audio info in the heads up display. I think GM is bad about not making all of the truck with the same software.

If you change the song with the steering wheel, it should show up on the hud. 

 

Edit: I have an AT4 and that's when it shows up on the HUD for me. Also had a 2016 Camaro and the HUD worked the same way.

I would guess that the truck on the lot had an older software version.  I believe people mentioned that feature going away a few software updates back.  Not sure why they took it away but 803 shouldn't have it

My HC will show the station in the HUD when I use the steering wheel controls like previously mentioned.

Is there a way to add the HUD to an LTZ?  I already get the red light notifications on the windshield.

Agree.  Our 2018 Yukon works the same way but can’t understand the irregularities and inconsistencies with GM.  As I see it if the High Country and AT4 have it then the Denali should as well.

My LTZ also works this way.

And for some reason my LTZ doesn’t. I feel like we’ll never get to the bottom of this...:smash:

Never has worked on my AT4. Before or after the version 803 update. I did finally find out that turn info from the Nav would show up so I guess it's not a total bust. If I remember correctly the GMC site was listing the tach as being part of the HUD at one point. Don't know if thats still listed on the site or not.

It does still show listed on the website.   Those that have the audio line showing on HUD how long have you owned your truck/what is the build date?   I wonder if there was some update at the factory and if it is something the dealer can flash?

My best guess is it was a reverse update at the factory and they took it away. The one guy I know who has radio displayed on HUD has an 8/18 built HC. Mine is a 10/18 and has never had it radio up there. The other trucks I’ve seen it on were from guys who were also early adopters and probably early build trucks.

My LTZ show audio when you use the steering wheel buttons to change station or song.  Display doesn’t stay on, show for short time when you hit button.  It is a 1/19 build.
