  1. Pierre, Your radio is not compatible. You need the newer 2016 radio as well. SPS updating will not give you functionality, as the hardware itself is different.

    This is so killer. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. Funny you say that, because I only ever provided you with the radio part number and $200 was the quoted price before you even got my VIN. I'm not interested in a back and forth here. If you offer a fair priced service, great. That's what this is all for. To stop people from getting completely ripped off by greedy programmers. Competition is great for everyone. To anyone who's reading this, feel free to go with whoever you'd like for programming. Have a great rest of your week, y'all.
  4. The best way to find out is to contact the seller that you're buying from and ask for the vehicles VIN. You can send me the VIN and I can pull RPO codes for you guys. I will gather some generic part numbers for you all that I know to be working. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  6. Hey guys, just wanted to point something out to you all. If you're upgrading a stereo that uses BOSE make sure the module younger came from a truck that had BOSE (RPO UQA) If you're truck doesn't have Bose, make sure you get a module from a truck that doesn't have Bose! They use different calibrations in the radios. The regular radios output an analogue signal while the Bose radios output a digital signal to an amplifier. I am working on getting this fixed so any module can be used, Bose or not, but for the time being this is how it has to work. Thanks everyone. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. Actually, the inclusion of HD radio isn't reliant on the HMI, but the radio module itself. A U2M radio is HD Radio capable, while a U2K radio is just a regular tuner (With XM). So, for example, I have a U2M radio in my truck, with a 2.5 HMI. I still have HD radio, but no pause or rewind. Just the higher quality signal.
  8. Only suggestion would be to use a different NAV app on ACP (like Waze). The factory GM NAV is completely independent from ACP or AA. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Who gave you the new radio and do you recall if it was a U2K radio? The selling feature of HD radio is the quality combined with the pause and rewind. I'll double check in the morning on my truck as I do have a U2M as my own radio and I recall the pause feature on my old 2.0 HMI but it very well may be absent from the 2.5.

  10. Hey Jim. I offer the service here at a discounted rate compared to those other guys. Feel free to PM me. Cheers, talk soon.
  11. 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.
  12. 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

    Are switches and seat memory still available?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
