Hey everyone! I just got my 2021 Satin Steel AWD Trailblazer LT on Thursday! I am loving it so far! I did have a few questions though.

1. I hate the gold Chevy Bowties, especially on grey. I think the RS Black bowties would look awesome on this. Has anyone replaced them? Did you do it yourself? Easy or difficult?

2. I don't have a "user's" icon or a "Apps" icon on my infotainment screen. How can I get those? I was told I need to go to the dealership and have them update it?

3. Is there a way to set sirius so that you can choose genre's of music, instead of scrollng 100's of stations to find what you're looking for?

Thanks for the help! :)

Welcome!

1. A few people on here have made threads where they black out the bowties, either via paint/plastidip or vinyl. I think amazon and ebay have vinyl kits to black them out as well.
2. Those are unfortunately only part of TB's that have the "Technology" package. Apps can't be added to the standard ones. (You aren't missing much though, there's like 5 apps.)
3. Not sure on that one I didn't utilize my trial at all.

Thank you so much! And thanks for the reply!!
I did see that you can buy the replacements from chevy.com. I've banked up a few rewards points for accessories so I was thinking of purchasing through there. I was thinking amazon though, for the steering wheel bowtie, since that isnt available.

Another question. Can you add wireless charging? Mine didn't come with it.

It seems like there's a lot for me to still learn about this vehicle! This is the first time I've ever owned a brand new car :) My last vehicle was a Kia Sportage and the motor seized up on me. That's when I decided I've had enough of driving other people's junk! :)

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Trailblazer! Great color choice. The blacked out emblems would look great with Satin Steel.

No one here has tried adding it for sure. It is build right into the center console cubby. Aside from buying a wireless charging pad and plugging it into the USB, I don't think it would be a task worth undertaking to try to install the OEM one.

Also, the OEM one is more of a battery tender. It charges SO slow. Especially when the phone is in use. I actually find the car as a whole sucks at charging anything. I've tried every outlet and it's slow no matter what.

So i was having issues keeping my Google Pixel 5 charged. Wireless charging couldnt keep up and the even with a USB-C cord it wasnt gaining much ground. Phone would also get really hot. So this week i had to make a 6 hour one way road trip and back. what i ended up doing was disabling Wireless Android auto, using a USB-C cord and placing the phone face down in the cubby. I ran Waze the entire trip and got to my destination with 100% batter and it wasnt hot.
I have a magnetic case on the back, so it shouldnt even engage wireless charging and that shouldnt be the issue. and even though i always use a cable i still suspect that something in Android Auto was still draining the phone with wireless function turned on.
Wireless Android Auto is nice if you want to leave the phone in your pocket, but i have found that on long trips it has random disconnects and wont reconnect, so i have been in the habit of using the cable anyway.
