To anyone else who is planning on an interior trim package that includes the 12” screen, you might consider jailbreaking an Apple device (I use an old iPhone 7 that tethers to my new device) to take full advantage of your display. It works on any Apple CarPlay enabled vehicle (to my knowledge). The Tweak is called CarBridge. I use it to stream YouTube videos, movies, etc. when traveling or waiting in the parking lot while my wife shops :rolleyes:. I think it will be great to utilize apps that may not have native CarPlay support, think Gaia, etc. Here’s a couple of pictures of it running on my current 2016 Silverado.

Awesome! I think Gaia has a native app now. The app showed up on my CarPlay recently on my 2020 Tremor. I haven’t had a chance to mess around with it though.

Well that’s good to hear! I did not renew my subscription after I sold my JK last Fall but it makes sense from their perspective.
