Anyone have any idea what the over the air software update was? What did it do?

When did it push out? I haven't seen any updates on my Infotainment system up to, and including, 1/9/2021 (since whatever update I installed back in June of 2020, I believe, unless it installed something on its own that I didn't catch).

Mine was yesterday, car wouldn't completely power down until it was installed. Very bothersome. No idea what it was for though.

If you are prompted, there should be an option to select for more info / details, and it should tell you A) what specific software build is being pushed and B) what the updates are intended to address.

Yes, something happened yesterday with one or more program updates that prevented my car's accessories from shutting down. You would turn off the power with accessories on and open the door as always, but accessories stay on. Yet, Chevy says they will replace the radio tomorrow (?)

My question was specifically around the comment that the radio was being replaced. Is there an open service order on the car and that's what the dealership is doing? Wasn't sure where that comment came from.

As far as the car just sitting, don't sweat it. It will get the update pushed down to it (if it's available) when you bring it out in the Spring. Different hardware gets different updates. So the 2019/2020 cars would likely get something a little different than the 2016-2018. And then there's the variable of WHICH system is in the car.

Some of the truck owners have been getting updates pertaining to bluetooth, climate control, and SD Card read error issues.

lol... Never had an issue with that myself as I was never one to jump in with both feet on day one of a rollout. Plus, the phone carriers were so slow in bringing their OTA updates out that I would typically have a new phone before it would happen.

I do know that there are a couple of truck owners saying that their experiences got worse with the specific update they received but I don't remember any of the specifics (model year, hardware, update build, etc.).

Youíre lucky.

Last one was a Note 2 that after an update it wouldnít charge. Android blamed it on Verizon & Verizon blames it on Android. Luckily I had a policy on it so I just got the money for it. Had I not had that I would have been screwed out of a 6mo old phone.

Now imagine this happening to a vehicle out of B2B warranty. Would GM still replace it? Inquiring minds be inquiring.

Do they push software updates OTA for cars that are out of warranty? I know that you can't get software updates on other vehicles that don't support OTA once you're out of warranty unless you want to pay for it...

Exactly why I prefer to review updates before loading. My motto, if itís not broken (or I donít know itís broken, or wonít use that feature) leave it alone.
