Keypass is better with 14.5, but 90% of the time, it doesn’t sense my approach. It does make unlocking faster if you don’t have the fob on you.

I recommend disabling keypass.

YOUR problems are likely caused by the android side of their infotainment system.


i suppose you have reading comprehension problems, because i never said i was using android. i am using iOS (carplay is an apple trademark and on android the equivalent is called "projection".)

Sorry. I saw “google maps announcement” and totally missed the fact it said CarPlay in your comment.

This is exactly why I have no intention of taking my Bolt to the dealer to address these recalls.

I haven't had any problems worth mentioning w/my Bolt. Taking any car to a dealer or shop is a major inconvenience to me and I'm a believer in the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

If/when my Bolt won't run and requires a repair, I'll have it taken to the dealer to fix that problem and do the recalls but only then. My hope that this will never be necessary w/in the 21 months left on my lease .

Fingers crossed. ;)

oh yeah - what i meant is that if google maps is running, and google tries to give an announcement about an upcoming direction, the software seems to handle the switching between carplay and whatever else is playing poorly.

Could you elaborate on this trick? More detail? Are those "HOME" the screen button, and "NEXT" the physical button next to the volume knob?

Thanks.

Yep, those are the buttons. If you hold both of them down together for about 10 seconds it will reboot the infotainment system - this will usually sort out any glitches in it and it can be done at any time while the car is on - even when you're driving.
