UPDATE: For those of you using an inferior operating system iPhone, you have almost all features available. Siri, texting, song selection, volume paddles, cluster display, steering wheel song switching all work. Android Auto will safety lock in a music app if you are making too many reqs in the app while in motion. I'm unsure about iPhone. PM me with questions! Cheers all.
So, a per my understanding, that's a feature that is pre-baked into Carplay and Android Auto. I haven't had much testing with Carplay, other than it works and it's paddle volume control and cluster audio display work as well. Send me a PM with a typical scenario of when it locks up and I'll verify if it does it with this upgrade. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
I have. It does not bypass the integrated GM voice. I believe upgrading the cluster to a newer 2016+ model will solve the problem, but to me it's a negligible upgrade. Just saying "OK Google" seems to be just fine for me. Pressing the mic button on screen is also functional.
There are workarounds that will be much cheaper than that. Just give me some more time and I'll point you in the right direction. But for the time being, no paddle volume control is available.
Quick and dirty video from an old phone. Thank you everyone for your patience and following along. PM me for inquiries, I'll have pricing available shortly
The Radio is responsible for all things MOST. It is the MOST Bus master. It is kind of like the middle man between every module who uses a form of media on board. It also has hardware in it, like an XM receiver, AM/FM tuner and HD Radio module. As for what the EXACT change that happens in the HW between a 2014 module and a 2016 module, I can only assume it's either a calibration set in newer modules to allow ACP and AA to work properly or a physical change in hardware. I don't have a concrete answer for you unfortunately.
That's what I'm trying to figure out! I have a strong feeling the module I have is defective, however I need a second one to test against to make sure everything is working out as it should. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
The HMI can be updated to an older build with red accents but you will have older software and the circle icons. It's your choice! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
Correct, if it bothers you that much. Personally I'd prefer to have the updated interface.
Color combos in what aspect? The colors on the screen? For the most part, everything you see on the infotainment screen is handled by the HMI. From 2017-2018, GM scrapped the red color scheme and made everything chevy blue, regardless of if the truck was a sierra or silverado. That's why in the new screenshots the scheme is blue. They did this with backlighting and cluster colors as well.
For anyone following along I am once again waiting for parts. I was having issues with the radio module I had originally ordered. A new module is on order and should be installed and ready to go by the end of the week. Once I have full audio for everything I will make a post here, signalling we're good to go! Again, thank you so much for your patience in this. I appreciate it!
I 100% agree with you. The camera is garbage quality. I suspected the same as you and even removed my camera from the tailgate, cleaned everything and reinstalled it. Garbage quality. As for an "HD" upgrade, if you want to keep things factory you're pretty much SOL. The camera sends a signal over a single component wire. I'm not sure if you can even buy higher quality sensors to drop in. The screen isn't even a high definition display, but even if we could get a SD upgrade that wasn't so awful I'd take it. If anyone has an aftermarket option or has any info regarding upgrading the current version I would also love to hear it! Thanks.
