Re: I had a full aftermarket sound system installed. Major improvement!

I don't crank it that loud very often ... but when a good song comes on sometimes you just gotta do it! Besides, only Guns n Roses songs really hurt lol.

Re: I had a full aftermarket sound system installed. Major improvement!

I'm pretty happy with the Bose system. It sounds very clean for a stock setup. I have a $4k system in my FJ Cruiser so I know what a great system sounds like. The Bolt's Bose system doesn't even come close at extreme volumes, BUT it still sounds pretty decent. It doesn't HIT like my FJ does, but it'...

Re: Help me understand how regen works

According to my limited understanding, when you lift your foot off of the accelerator, the electric motor goes into generator mode (I assume there is some software that controls this?) and starts generating electricity, which goes back to the battery. This works because the rotor (magnet) is being ...

Re: Pics of your dashcam installed

The Bolt is an excellent vehicle for part-time Uber driving so I can't believe I'm the only one doing it. If you're considering doing it PLEASE use my referral code. We will both receive a $50 bonus. MATTB61882UE Referral amounts and minimum trip requirements vary from city to city so we may get a ...

Re: Pics of your dashcam installed

Terrific explanation of your use of a dash cam and Uber; thank you for this information! See, if I had a dashcam I could have posted the video. Did you have posted a "disclosure" notice anywhere on the exterior or interior of your Bolt EV warning the Uber passengers of such video/audio re...

Re: Poll for which Bolt improvements matter most to you

How about a basic "Homelink" garage door opener like my last 6 cars (98 M3, 02 CTS V, 07 Prius, 08 Prius, 06 Cayman S, 12 335is. I personally never enable / configure "Homelink" garage door opener on any vehicle - it allows anybody that breaks into the vehicle when at my house t...

Re: Pics of your dashcam installed

My previous experience with dashcam was great. It saved me some hassle when a branch bounced off my hood while I was driving. I was on a country road with no witnesses, so it would have been just my word on how the hood got dented. Thankfully I had the dashcam and my claim was "investigated&quo...

Pics of your dashcam installed

I'm looking at buying a dashcam in the very near future. I have a BlackVue DR600 in my FJ Cruiser. Love it, but I need a passenger-cam (second IR camera) in the Bolt for Uber driving. Everyone loves the Bolt btw. I hear "it's like a spaceship" at least 4 or 5 times a night. The blue light ...

Re: Controlling Music On USB Memory Stick

Oh man the GUI on searching for songs on a memory stick sucks. It's hard enough to find a song but trying to find ANOTHER song after that is really annoying. Once you go into a folder, getting back out is terrible because you basically have to start over at the top directory. Very bad design IMO. Fo...
