Dealer is clueless. It literally takes 10 mins after talking to tis web to give them the authorization code. Once they have that they add the new calibration to your cluster and the A11 radio unit. Then all the dealer has to do at that point is hook up the MDI 2 an go to SPS an load the new calibrations to the cluster and A11. They MAY have to do a USB File transfer for the a11. Depends on if you already got the OTA update or not. The longest part is them getting them to add the calibration over the phone. I added the nav instructions for you guys to print out and take to the dealer so they have them and dont have to scratch their heads wondering what to do. Silverado Navigation.pdf

If you are in Dallas I can help you add the Factory nav for less than that. I added it to my 19 Silverado and it works great. Also speed limit shows in the cluster now. You can buy the SD card online daily cheap. I found mine on ebay for 99$ and they included the activation code required to add the calibration to your truck. I have the MDI 2 so I upgraded the calibrations myself. took just a few mins.
I bought a 19 RAM Limited in July. I owned a 13 RAM since new and loved it. My 19 was nota good truck. Loved the features but once you get passed those its just not a good truck. Leaks and electrical issues noises and clunks. I bough an LT 19 Silverado and love it. the 5.3 to me drives way better than the 5.7 Hemi and I get 17-20 MPG in my Silverado without effort. My ram would be great to see 11-13MPG. I had the 36 gallon tank in the RAM and I was glad for that but Have not felt the need for a larger tank in my Silverado because of the better fuel milage. I was glad to get our of m Ram and I only got a Silverado because it seemed like they were giving them away. Lots of incentives and I actually really love the Silverado. I have really been enjoying it a lot. I added the OEM accessory navigation to it. Works great. I don't really get into what's better because all brands have issues. I had a 13 no issues. I had a 19 and nothing but issues. I will keep this Silverado for a few years and see whats out there then. For now I am enjoying the truck and my family is also. They say I am not so up tight about them being in this truck because its not a fancy. Cloth seats not leather. The chevy app works night and day better than the RAM app. It would never work or be so slow it was useless. The chevy app once I hit start its started. Really nice plus the ram did not have LTE wifi it had 4g. The chevy LTE wifi is great. RAM may overtake GM in the number 2 spot short term but I can't see it being long term a lot of unhappy RAM owners right now with all the issues
Chrome can be painted reliably. You have to scuff it a bit and make sure to use a good Epoxy primer. I am debating on paint my chrome bumpers. Regardless of how well they are painted they will chip. The factory ones do. I really wanted to paint mine but it sure has been nice driving and not be worried about chips. If you paint then your best bet is to have paint protection film applied. The cost starts to add up quickly. Eventually the painted bumpers if you drive a lot and do not protect them start to look bad. My 13 Ram looked terrible when I traded it.
JD214 replied to matt32's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMYou're welcome. I just happen to be searching through this forum. Saw this thread then was on the Chevy tech site and saw this. figured id help you guys out. Its a shame they keep this stuff secret though. Should be readily a bailable to the owners. Instead they keep it secret on their internal tech site.
If you try to buy only an SD card you'll get no where. Once the tech is able to have support authorize the updated calibration files they have to refresh your cluster and radio module. Then the nav will function as if it were shipped with it. If you buy an aftermarket nav Kir from one of the normal people it will not be the same. The radio modules are now all in one and contain the sat radio and Onstar and wifi where the old ones were just change the HMI and have nav. Also if you replace just the radio module the cluster won't work as it would if you buy the nav upgrade kit. The official nav kit comes with SD card and the authorization code. You'll have to pay .5 or 1.0 to have the programming done depends not he relationship your dealer has with you.
