Apple Car Play and GMC Trucks

safetuGMC trucks in Thunder Bay ON are some of a long list of new and used cars and trucks that will be popping up all over the place with Apple CarPlay and most all who need a new GMC Truck in Canada are excited about this addition.  “Between real-time traffic updates, navigation directions, hands-free calling, and streaming audio services, today’s smartphones offer many features that can be beneficial while on the go.”  This, along with almost all other technology that is available in a new GMC Truck in Thunder Bay has become well sought after to a point that drivers begin to question what they did before that technology or added feature became available.

All manufacturers put their own twist on things a bit.  “GMC has a solution. Starting with select 2016 Canyon, Sierra, and Yukon models, GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system2 will support Apple CarPlay connectivity.” Apple CarPlay is designed to be used with Apple iPhones running iOS 7.1 or later, and is intended to provide the driver with a simple way to not only connect a phone to their GMC Truck, but remain connected with their music, calendar, and other personal data in a hands free way, expressed in more detail below.

“More importantly, drivers won’t need to pick up their phone in order to control certain apps. Instead, they can utilize the touchscreen, steering wheel controls, or select voice commands to control their device while keeping their eyes on the road ahead.”  We all know that tying up your hands while driving can equal disaster and total distraction.  This feature minimizes the need for that sort of behavior in your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks in Canada and also in other new and used vehicles of a wide variety of makes and models on today’s market.

Buick Cars are Not Race Cars

oil filterOlder oil filters, according to our Buick Car Service Center in Thunder Bay ON, were a bit more involved when it came to replacement, you had to retain part of the set up and put the new filter inside.  Despite the evolution of the whole throw away Buick Car oil filter, there exists a move back to the old school ways, according to our recent Thunder Bay Buick Car Service research.  “Today, there’s been a move back to the earlier oil filter design. In this system, oil is filtered through an element contained within a separate housing, because the replaceable filter element may be more environmentally conscious than a spin-on filter. Keep in mind that today’s motor vehicles require far fewer oil changes than those of yesteryear.”

There are many different types of oil filters available today for your Buick Cars in Canada, as well as many other makes and models of new and used cars, trucks and SUVs all over the world.  “Also, there are likely an equally large number of tests in which various filters are cut apart and diagnosed. The truth is, all oil filters are not created equal. The bottom line: You usually get what you pay for.”  So, much of our oil filter research done on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Canada was to determine if there actually is a quality difference in the filters and the answer is definitely yes.

To decide which one is best for your Thunder Bay Buick Car, you have to decide the process and missions for the car itself.  A Buick Car will never be a race car.  You can safely move past that aisle.  If you were driving a race car, the following would be true, “Case-in-point is a race car. Here is something that will seldom, if ever, experience cold starts (in many cases, the oil is warmed prior to starting). Oil is changed frequently, simply because the engines are inspected and regularly disassembled. Oil in race car engines was once far thicker than that found in passenger cars, but today it’s just the opposite. Racers have discovered the benefits of light oil.”
