  1. Hey Magpi3,


    I have a 2015 3500hd ltz with bose and navigation. I don't have carplay and hoping to get it by swapping HMI. From what I understand so far, if I want to keep my navigation I will need a i06 NG 2.5 HMI and usb. Can you let me know what all I need?


    Thank you for the help!

  2. Chris is right. It all comes down to personal preference. I'm not the biggest fan of the factory maps and am fine using Google maps. Even in areas of no cell service you can pre-download that map area and the GPS in your phone will still navigate you. If you wanna keep your IO6 an IO6 go that route. If you live mainly in an urban areas and want to just use carplay/AA go for IO5 and save a few bucks. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. No stress. Just figured I'd point it out that if it's a 2016 you don't need the radio done. Just the HMI.
  4. Might want to do a bit more research. Not saying you're wrong but I've done plenty of swaps for people who have the 2016's and only the HMI is needed to be programmed. The radio does not need to be touched. If @Goinovr has any more questions he can also reach out to us at Coastal Flash and we'd be happy to assist.
  5. You bet. Visit coastalflash.com and look at the rear camera in motion kit. It will allow you to view the camera for 25 seconds but you'll need a harness and some programming (part of the kit).
  6. Great job on the mod. And go flames go [emoji123] Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Re seat the square connector on the back of the screen. Unplug it and plug it back in. Ensure all wires are firmly pressed into their connector and see if the issue persists. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Do the volume knobs work? There are 2 Lin bus connections on the square connector on the back of the screen. One is responsible for the audio volume knobs and button controls and one is responsible for the touch screen. If the volume and buttons are working then there's an issue with the touch screen Lin connection. Try reseating that connector and seeing if the touch screen starts functioning again. The fact that it was working for a few weeks tells me it could be not seated properly. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Hey man. I would absolutely check your LVDS connections (blue USB on HMI, black USB on screen) as well as the black connector on the back of the 8 inch screen as that is what's responsible for the LIN bus communication for touching the screen.
  10. Should easily be able to help you rig something up. Send me a PM or contact me at coastal flash. Link in my signature. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Just wanted to show off a mod we recently did for someone in Germany who imported a Sierra overseas! We were able to enable DAB radio, European radio frequencies and enabled all languages. We have done a few mods for people with GM vehicles overseas - pretty cool to be able to see these different options available for vehicles from different regions.
  12. Yeah I believe Phil Gamboa may sell the camera harness. You can get the tailgate camera from eBay for a decent price. I can also help you out with programming should you need it. Good luck! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Yep you absolutely can sell them on eBay. I always recommend my customers do it if they want to make the cost of the upgrade to Carplay/AA even more affordable
  14. Hey Scott - We supply both of these kits. Please check out https://coastalflash.com for all of our pricing
