How To Use The GMC Hummer EV Auxiliary Switches: Video4
General Motors has released a video instructing GMC Hummer EV owners on how to use the vehicle’s programmable auxiliary switches.
This video is part of a running online video series called ‘Declassified’ that’s intended to inform viewers on the new GMC Hummer EV Pickup’s various options and features and how to get the most out of them. Not coincidentally, the video series has debuted just as customer deliveries of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup are ramping up.
The auxiliary switches in the GMC Hummer EV allow users to customize up to six touchscreen buttons within the vehicle’s ‘Off-Road’ menu page through the infotainment display screen. Users can select the button icon from a list of various icons (including some rather humorous ones that take potshots at the competition) and enter text to name the button what they please. The buttons can be used to control auxiliary light bars, winches and more. There’s also a setting to have the custom auxiliary buttons displayed on the right-hand side of the infotainment system’s home screen, giving the user easy access to the controls they are set for.
As some GM Authority readers will already know, the GMC Hummer EV features an advanced 13.4-inch infotainment display and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, both of which utilize Google’s Android Automotive OS. This operating system is new for GM and will enable it to integrate its Ultifi platform into future vehicles – a connected software platform that will bring more over-the-air updates and in-vehicle subscription services to GM products, among other advantages. This advanced infotainment system also leverages the video game-derived Unreal Engine to deliver crisp digital graphics and animations.

Do you need a class D license to drive this truck …. it’s 9000 pounds. .. and do you have to be a millionaire to by it.
Same curb weight and GVWR class as a Silverado 2500.
However, a Silverado 2500 diesel crew cab is worse in licensing because it’s over the 26,000 lb GCWR limit… you may need a CDL. This isn’t an issue on the Hummer EV.
I’ll admit I haven’t used this, but it seems clunky. The problem is when people use aux switches for warning lights like highway construction vehicles. You often need to leave them on while the vehicle is parked. A tow truck driver needs to turn flashing lights on as they pull up to a scene.
On the old way, you have a physical switch you can instantly hit. This way, you got to turn on the car, wait until the infotainment system starts up, open the right page, and then hit the button. Even better when you’re wearing thick gloves.
These programable features should show up in most new GM Vehicles.
