    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    Geez, I'm afraid to even ask if you can plug an external hard disk with my music collection into the SRX USB drive. I might bring down the wrath of the whole forum on me.

    Seriously, what is the difference between a thumb drive, hard disk, and an iPad? They are all storage units and should work equally. If the iPad is not recognized as a storage unit, then there must be something in the iPad blocking the connection and it's usually the power charging system. I've seen this with the iPad and other mp3 players. Even though they have USB jacks, they will not charge because they are expecting more milliamperes through the USB.

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    Welcome BL, to our Forum. we have very nice and extremely helpful members here, but sometimes the pot boils over a little. But make no mistake, any one of us would jump into the fire to help another member, if it came down to it. So stay tuned......

    TexasStation and rest, as for the Ipad or any computer on the dash, I also think that most folks lack the disciplin to drive safely with it onboard. I am firmly against such distractions up front and hope more laws are passed to stop them from working, while in motion. Sure some will invest in the tech to bypass such restrictions, but the less-wise, younger, naive drivers life (or mine!) may be spared. And don't ever get in an serious accident while using one. The CIVIL liability will backrupt you.

    I am a recovering techno junkie and use it in my work every day, but gotta let yas know, I'm worried more than ever when I get on the road these days. PJ1520's story is so sad. Sorry pal, for your loss. Technology always will be a 2 edged sword. I value you all.

    Peace. Thx for listening.

    I have used the iPad app to start the car; it's a 2011 SRX. What I would like to know is, does anyone know how to reset the measurement values from metric to Imperial. FYI, the app is terrific, but GM needs to open it for cars built before 2011. Thanks, all.

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    i think gm officially supports 2010 models and has said they will get it working for 2009 as well (and maybe 2008, i can't remember)...
    but that's probably as far back as they will go
    the onstar hardware changed around then and i don't think it's either technically possible and/or financially prudent for them to do more than that

    If you set the instrument cluster to US units, the ipad app should follow on the next sync. The app has been recently updated to RemoteLink version 1.2(349); it was fomerly called MyLink. Try upgrading if you haven't already done this. There is no setting within RemoteLink to change units. Hope this helps!
