    Did you have to update your software as well, or did installing the new USB port allow your carplay to work? Thanks!

    Did not have to update my software as it came with version 2.0 from the factory. It was truly just a part swap and then it worked.
    I am still learning how to use it but I'm surprised at the voice text and how simple it is to use. I'm having trouble finding apps that are compatible with CarPlay and will need to do some more research but the ones that display work fine.

    So after researching carplay for a little bit I guess we are limited with what you see on the screen so far. CarPlay is an app interface with Snyc3 and has limited apps available. Using Siri seems to be the best feature, Google maps can play in the background (audio only) but you have to set up destination on the phone first. iOS 10 has made some improvements like allowing you to rearrange the displayed apps on CarPlay screen and even taking a few of them off which really just removes them from the Sync view screen.

    It's an interesting feature that will only get better in my opinion, I hope our Sync3 is upgradeable because I would hate to see it outdated before I finish with my truck!

    Rolled 7100 today in my truck, no problems just trouble free miles. If the weather stays nice I'll get it washed and waxed this weekend.
    Reading about others with issues on their trucks... nothing to report on mine.

    A little bit of Texas for y'all!

    So last night on the way home I got stuck behind some jackwagon in the inside lane (IH35) and when I finally was clear to go around him in the center lane I had to punch it. It was dark so I couldn't see the full extent of it but I put out some light black smoke, I thought of carbon and unburned fuel when I saw it in the rear view mirror.

    Have any of you guys experienced this? I'm not too concerned but I do notice carbon on the little chrome exhaust tip.

    Are you tuned? If not, the stock tune tends to run a little rich. It's normal, some aftermarket tunes do so as well. Usually the canned tunes.

    Not tuned, I understand why they are running it rich with DI it kinda needs it. Just mildly surprised to see it with so few miles on the engine.
    I'm ok with an occasional Italian tune up.
