Re: Saw new recall on mychevrolet today

N172127150 is still in my view of my.chevrolet.com... in fact it still says incomplete even though it was (supposedly) done yesterday. i guess there's no way to know.

Re: Saw new recall on mychevrolet today

dumb question though - is there any way for the service dept to diagnose this problem in advance? meaning that when they do the software update do you think they are also directed to test the pack for weak cells? The diagnosis happens when you use the car. If the software detects a problem, it will...

Re: New Software 14.5 installed by Dealer

ok - same behavior... google maps announcements are cut off while listening to radio (audio switches to carplay while announcement is already in progress) , but on the plus side the google maps audio never stops playing after thrashing a few times, as it did in the original version that was shipped ...

Re: New Software 14.5 installed by Dealer

Re: New Software 14.5 installed by Dealer

i went in today for an unspecified radio software upgrade and the "better warning for pack imbalance" upgrade today. indeed 14.5 is now installed on my MY2017 bolt. i had installed 14.4.2 myself and i guess owing to the new software being > 14.4.2, no one complained or noticed that it had ...

Re: AppleCarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Issues

also how did they get to version 14 on a product that is only a couple of years old??? As a developer, I always assumed that version numbers didn't have a cost. Increment for any excuse. Of course, I usually didn't get to roll the major number, only the minor number. right, i mean the major number ...

Re: AppleCarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Issues

i agree that it is bad; the thing takes so long to switch between radio and carplay when google maps is trying to make announcements that usually the announcements are cut off and not intelligible. i never try to use any other app but apple music to play music in the car and believe it or not the 14...

Re: Google Pay on Apple CarPlay

i suspect that google would have to explicitly code for carplay and probably have not done it? maybe they are not interested, same with the way they stopped supporting apple watch in google maps.
