2022 CT5 V Blackwing
I just got a new 2022 CT5 V Blackwing with the PDR option.

Problems is that there is no PDR/SVR ICONs on the Infotaintment screen.

There are SD cards in both slots by wheel (256GB) and trunk (8GB).

Trunk SD card is recording and I can play videos on my laptop.

Do I need to load the PDR software/application?

Am I missing something else?

Thought I'd try here before going to the dealer.

Thanks in advance.

Configuration:
- Wave Metallic
- Sky Cool With Jet Black Accents
- 10-Speed Auto
- Carbon Ceramic Brakes
- Performance Data And Video Recorder
- Ultraview Sunroof
- Parking Package
- Driver Assist Package
- 19" Satan Graphite Dark Finish Wheels
- Sueded Microfiber Steering Wheel
- Interior Protection Package
- Cargo Net

I hate to ask the simple question but are you scrolling all the way to the last page on the infotainment center?

Wrong SD card?
The application should still be available and tell me that there is no card inserted or the format is wrong or it can't recognize it, etc ...

Going to try taking both cards out, erasing the stuff on the 8GB and reversing where they are.

Also, user manual/book merely states "press PDR icon" to get started. Also, says card reader is in glove compartment. That;s where is's at on my C8 Corvette (traded in on Blackwing). So user manual is not up to date.

I am sorry, but in the computer world we would say this sounds like a PEBKAC issue. I am guessing that you haven't discovered that the infotainment screen allows you to swipe.

I had to Google that one brother!

problem exists between chair and keyboard

PEBCAK, one of many terms used in Internet chatting, stands for "problem exists between chair and keyboard," meaning it's a problem in user understanding or behavior rather than something wrong with hardware or software. The term is sometimes used by help desk people since it's a common class of problems.

That did it!!!!

You learn something new every day.

Thanks again for your help and a trip to the dealer (would probably been some eye-rolling there).

Sometimes you overlook the obvious.

Great first experience on the forum.

I have no excuse.

I worked in IT in higher education for 35 years.

From IBM mainframes thru Internet Security.

As they say: Good thing it wasn't a snake/Can't see the woods for the trees/.......
lol I want to say something about "those who can't... " but I will refrain. We all have moments... This was yours lol

Your dealer must be terrible if they didn't spend time with you to show you the basics of the car.
