Hey all,
Picked up our beautiful Z71 on Monday, Dec 28. Spent a few days getting to know her, and ordered and installed a roku stick for the kiddos in the back. All worked well on our first try.
Took a road trip to visit the parents, about 3 hours away. We started up the rear entertainment system, hoping to get some quiet time on the 4 hour drive. Less than a mile from our house, the system completely locked up! We turned the system off, unplugged the roku devices, and both screens stayed on for the duration of the trip. My daughter's screen had the youtube logo, my son's screen was black, but lit. This issue has persisted throughout the weekend. The screens do turn off once we are away from the vehicle, but every time we've tried to run the roku device again the same issue had occured. Calling the dealership tomorrow, of course, but why did we pay $2500 more for a system that doesn't seem to work reliably? Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

Welcome @Mrs. Polley

Are you experiencing this issue with the screens under any other situations?
Haven't heard of these issues yet but its likely out there.

How's the rest of your Z71 holding up?

I took it to the dealership and they claimed it was the roku stick itself causing the issues. They said they used Miracast to stream a movie with no issues. The problem with Miracast is that I can't figure out 1. which specific Miracast app to download nor 2. how to get it set up and working. Too old for this tech, apparently. We have used the Roku stick with success once now, and put a small blu ray player in the car as well that we can hook up. My best guess is that spotty internet caused the glitch the first time-hopefully no more issues. All in all I do wish we'd skipped the add on and just went with tablet mounts and/or a portable DVD system. Much cheaper and easier to use.

Otherwise, the truck has been AMAZING. So fun to drive and it handles unbelievably well in the snow.
