Re: Wireless CarPlay adapter

Yes, I got one and it works. I also upgraded the wireless charging module in my 2017 so that my phone charges while it is connected wirelessly. There's a FB post about this and supposedly the CarLinkit dongle works too, but I wouldn't know which one since there's at least 2 that I can see. I'm prett...

Re: Bike racks

I bought a Highland SportWing. The design has changed, and it's no longer possible to get the riser shank. It's too bad, as the bike rides low -- the tires on my road bike (700) were 5" off level ground (with the hitch being 9 1/2" off the ground). Hence, it can no longer be recommended f...

Re: Bluetooth Delay for Google Maps

There is a lag in the Bluetooth on the Bolt. Assuming this is hardware and not software, the only way to fix it would be if Map Apps like Waze and Google would implement a tone, followed by a 1/2 sec to 1 sec delay before speaking.

Re: New owner...Looking for some hitch info ..

There’s a bunch of info about hitches. Some of us who bought the Curt hitch ended up replacing it with the Drawtite hitch.

Re: Bike racks

The "bounce" appears to be the characteristics of the rear suspension. As soon as I get some free $$ I want to look in to some sort of dampening for it - be it new shocks/struts or otherwise. If you find a good resolution I'm sure we all will love to investigate it. Hard to rest your head...

Re: Self-sealing tires vs spare tire options

I've never had good luck with slime for holes as major as a screw hole. One time, I put slime in a tire not knowing what object had punctured it. I found and removed a 9mm bullet, and there was no chance the goo could plug that hole. It just barfed it all over my garage floor. Tire shops repair tir...

Re: Bike racks

I just pushed down on the wing on my car and while it squeaks it doesn't deflect very far with 10-15 lbs pressure. I'm personally in favor of a $100 hitch and a hitch rack for bike storage. Why bother with the Curt hitch and stabilizing straps when you can get the Drawtite hitch? That hitch is desi...

Re: Self-sealing tires vs spare tire options

Any particular year of S10 I should be looking at? I have access to a local auto salvage and jacks and spares are probably the things they have plenty of from wrecked or otherwise damaged cars. Most spares never get used. 95-05 S10, Envoy, Bravada, Jimmy. Just compare it to the picutre. As long as ...
