Re: HD Surround Vision

Its been that way since 2017. The car you see in that view is like an icon, or sprite, its a generic car shown by the computer not actually seen by any camera. The other camera views like front and rear parking camera can see your actual bumper, hence it being the correct color. To some degree Chevy...

Re: Seat swap update - need an expert in airbags

Its a little odd, the experience from one forum to another. I'm also active on the Delorean owners boards. There are only a few thousand Deloreans out there - but I'd venture there is some similarity to the the owners of both vehicles - maybe we trend a little technical - maybe more engineers than c...

Seat swap update - need an expert in airbags

I'm happy to tinker with the car to try to fix its shortcomings. I came up with the foam trick for the seat bottoms (but didn't post the video), swapping the sunvisors for the telescopic ones, and I've experimented with electronic pest repellers until I found one that's kept the mice out of my front...

Re: Charging at Electrify America

I went to an EA site in San Diego yesterday, and it failed miserably, on two levels. First, the chip readers in the pay stations don't work, but when swiping the card the card does read so eventually I figured that out. Yes the charge cords are too short, barely long enough to reach the the plug on ...

Re: Reoccuring Rodent Damage

This happened to my Bolt twice, in the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018. Both times they got into the front bumper area and started eating the wiring harness. The first time I took it in the service manager knew immediately that it was rodent damage by the way - that ought to tell you something. Both...

Drop in Seat replacement

It appears that the 2017 Bolt and the 2017-2019 Volt use the same seat base /slider track assembly #13514824. This strongly implies that the seats from a late model Volt will drop right into a Bolt. I have ridden many times in a 17 Volt and the seats are worlds better. You can head to your local Car...

Re: Can anyone confirm using the 2019 seat cushion in a 2017?

Funny, I was looking at this same approach and was about to post what I found... So, both the Bolt and the Volt 2019 use the same seat frames. They use different foam pads and different seat covers. It would appear that one could order foam pads and perhaps seat covers and significantly upgrade the ...

Re: Do you have 4G? - Need some data please

Appreciate you testing it - that's as fast as my onstar ever gets, Ususally when its above 3 or 4 mbps, my apps (usually Waze and NPR or Pandora) have enough bandwidth.

That t-mobile speed is pretty awful - hope its usually better than that.

Anybody else willing to check?

Do you have 4G? - Need some data please

I recently had my onstar/4G unit replaced under the extended warranty, even though it works its still painfully slow. To check my connection speed I have downloaded the SpeedTest app from ookla (Apple and Android available) and I log into my wifi with the car running but parked. I run the program an...
