My 2016 Impala allowed me to make phone calls and change audio sources through my steering wheel controls also utilizing the DIC in the cluster. My 2022 LT LTD is missing this feature and it's bothering me. I see others with phone and audio controls in their Trail Bosses, but my DIC only goes three screens deep with no phone or audio option.
Is this a microchip shortage omission, or is it because the dealer didn't order a technology package when they ordered my truck?

I just push the steering wheel button to make calls or send texts on my 21 LT TB?

My steering wheel button controls only my phone. My 2016 Impala used to have a built in assistant separate from my phone. A press of the "speak" button would prompt a response of "Say a command or say HELP".

If there is no cell phone in the truck this button does nothing.

So basically, it appears GM has eliminated the built in assistant and turned over all voice controls to Android auto and Apple car play.

I was sure I saw a trail boss somewhere that had audio controls and phone controls in the DIC screen. Mine does not. (See pic) Just Home/Info/Settings.

Compare this screen grab from a youtube vid of a 2021 Trail Boss DIC. This one has Home/Info/Music/Nav/Phone/Settings.

So my truck is missing Music, Nav, and Phone.
