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...

Re: 4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

Glad I purchased the extended warranty - cost to replace the 4g/Wifi/Onstar module was $1161.32 .

It's a pain in the butt to get the new one working, about half an hour on the phone with Onstar but we finally got it working.They had to provision it etc.

Re: 4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

The 4G/wifi hotspot is part of the Onstar Module. The Dealer has confirmed its bad and has ordered a replacement.

I am told its a module behind the radio assembly under the dash...

Will report once its replaced.

Re: 4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

It's just gone from bad to dead. The unit still broadcasts its SSID, but I can no longer logon. It appears to disconnect immediately and automatically. I can still check vehicle status via the onstar app. I'll presume that onstar and the 4G/Wifi use the same data service. I'll ask. Maybe the extende...

4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

My 4G hotspot is barely pulling in a cell signal. Could be a problem with the cellular modem or the antenna. I get 0.2 mbps from my hotspot while getting 100mbps from my ATT mobile phone . I suspect there may be a bad shared antenna with the radio, as reception there had suffered there too. Does any...

Re: speed limiter

Its a common feature in Europe. They have a lot of speed cameras and traps that americans just dont see coming. When I'm driving in Europe I have Waze on to inform mw what the local speed limit might be, and I use the speed limiter to ensure I don't go more that a few km/h faster than that. This way...
