Default Thanks, Country Boy

I'm trying it now. Who would have ever thought we'd be upgrading the software in a pickup truck? My dad would just shake his head.

++1 on that. There were a few things that I assumed we would get that I guess only US models get.

What I'd love to see is an Android replacement for uConnect... Doubt that would ever happen though. I'd love to be able to tether the truck to my phone... Google Maps on the 8.4 inch screen would be SOOOOO sweet.

I'd love to see Apple release it's iron grip just a bit, and allow the iPhone to work with UConnect for the messaging (texting). I think this would be a nice safety feature.

1. Yes, it can receive and read text messages to you. You can reply with boiler plate texts.
2. No idea, I'm an avid Android user.

Here are a couple features I found...

Lane Change Signal - Just bump the turn signal switch and release for 3 quick blinks! Great for lane changes...

Tip Start - Turn the key to start and quickly release. The truck will continue to crank the engine and start on its own (assuming you have a key and not the push button start)

Nothing Earth shattering but cool little features!

To my fellow Canucks, I'm just waiting to see exactly what Rogers is going to offer with the NAV system. We can only hope it is comparable with our U.S.A. friends, however we all know that their true name is Robbers.

Back to topic: Not exactly a tip/trick with the equipment but for the Sirius/XM when your trial runs out, always refuse the first offer to renew, maybe even the second offer.
