Replacing 2.0 HMI module with 2.5 HMI module to add CarPlay/Android Auto to 2014-2015 Silverado

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried this yet?

 

 

I set up an appointment Friday to have the firmware in my stereo updated and will be ordering the 2.5 HMI module tonight to see if this actually works.

I did this, since my 2016 was one of the trucks that had the $200 rebate for having the old 2.0 hmi and no apple carplay or android auto.

However I went through these guys, https://www.gm-navigation.com

It's a little pricey, but the hmi is already programmed with your Vin and whatever options you want. And mine works great, the only glitchy thing I've ever encountered is the pandora app on my home screen can be finicky, but pandora plays fine through android auto so whagevs.

From what I am seeing it's a little more friendly to iPhones just swapping out the HMI.  I'm taking a chance, will just upgrade what I have to to get it to work.

Mine was less than that. But yeah, I paid extra for a no hassle plug and play. I suck with electronics, so I was willing to pay extra for it to be easy.

Yeah, if I'm going to drop that much money I'm going to gut it and replace it with aftermarket.  Those guys look like they offer a good service and I know a lot of people here are happy with them but I don't want factory Nav and I won't pay a premium for it.  I just want Carplay added.

Module arrives Wednesday.  Had the truck in the shop on Friday and got the radio software updated to try and alleviate any potential issues there. 

If I can get the module in Wednesday night I'll definitely update, good or bad. 

Only roadblocks I see right now is I have the old USB ports in my console (with the SD card slot), some guys have had to upgrade to the new USB ports.  That said, the guys that have had issues with the old ports were on android which apparently requires more bandwidth than Carplay.  I'm on iOS so I'm hoping for the best.

I hope it works as I want to add CarPlay to my 15 especially with iOS 12 adding Waze and Google Maps. I seen some listings on eBay that offer the 2.5 module without GPS and USB ports already programmed to your VIN for like $600. If it can be had for cheaper that will be great

The third party Nav apps coming to iOS is what finally lit the fire under me. 

 

Also, don’t pay $600 for just the HMI module. Look in the comments of the YouTube video. There’s a guy listed there selling them for far cheaper than that.

Alright, Ladies and Gentlemen. 2.5 HMI module arrived today and I swapped it out. It takes longer to get the glove boxes out than it does to swap the module. 

 

The bad news, everything except Apple CarPlay works. It just doesn’t detect the phone. That said, I have not yet upgraded the USB connector in the armrest. That will now be my next purchase to see if that makes it work. 

 

If if that doesn’t, the next thing is apparently the radio module and I have been told that is relatively reasonable in price too.

I think it will work with the USB connector based on the comments on the YouTube video. It seems that the people having problems are with Android. I’m going to order the HMI and USB connector

Keep in mind, my truck is a 2014, non-Bose, non-Nav. The people that this has worked for on iOS, from what I’ve seen, are in 2015’s. I’m prepared to ultimately spend whatever I have to to make this work, I’m just trying to logically get to that point as cheap as I can.

      Android auto has stopped coming up in the console display on my 2016 Silverado.The app comes up on my phone when I connect to the USB port but will not display on the console, the phone does charge though. Google search says replace the cable for the phone, that didnt work. Took it to the Dealer and they have no idea either. Any help would be much appreciated!

      Yes, you did indeed read that correctly.
       
      You can now have all of the proper steering wheel controls inside of Car Play / Android Auto without having to physically upgrade your cluster. This service will still require you to ship your cluster in (and of course we will turn them as fast as humanly possible) or you may choose to source a used one as these are plentiful and honestly pretty cheap! Just make sure you get with us prior to purchasing a used unit to make sure everything matches as it should as there are many different types and combos such as red/blueish green lighting, Z71, All Terrain etc

      Big thanks for the push from our dealer network and fantastic customers like you guys!

      Hi everybody!
       
      As some of you may know, I've been working hard to help the lovely members of this forums program some of their vehicles to add unique and exciting features to their trucks and cars.
       
      Well, I'm happy to announce a project I've been working very hard on over the last few months. Welcome to Coastal Flash!
       

       
      Final_Short.mp4
       
      We have been spending countless hours taking the time to develop new products and features for our line of vehicles and add them all to an easy to use marketplace for all members of the forum to enjoy.
       
      We're happy to offer free shipping on all kit purchases across North America and also are happy to provide phone support to anybody who purchases our services. Plus, we will beat any price quoted by our competitors on kits and programming services. It's not about being the cheapest, but about making these upgrades more affordable for the average user. The entire reason this market was formed was because we felt the current market was monopolized and overcharging for their services. Coastal Flash is here to put an end to that.
       
      Currently, we offer:
       
      Both 2.0-2.5 HMI Carplay/Android Auto kits & Programming Denali Cluster Programming and Upgrades Video in Motion Unlocks Rear Camera in Motion Unlock & Harness Custom HMI Boot Animations and Splash Screens Amplifier repair Late 90's - mid 2010's Radio Linking and Testing Navigation Updates Custom Reverse Engineering Services And many more services...  
      So please, if you are interested in getting any of these upgrades done to your vehicle, I encourage you to take a look at what we've been up to!
       
      Feel free to take a look through some of the upgrade threads posted here on the forums and look at the reviews some customers have been leaving for our services. I think their words speak for themselves. 
       
      I'm also very open to ideas or suggestions from forum members of what you'd like to see installed into your vehicles, so feel free to send me a PM or an email and let me know what mod you'd like to see done next. Nothing is too big or too small.
       
      I'll be consistently monitoring this thread and updating it with new services and discoveries as we make them available.
       
      Oh, and one more thing, we're offering some special discounts for Black Friday and Cyber Monday so feel free to stop by, take a look around and save some cash on that new upgrade you've been wanting to get.
       
      Thanks for stopping by and thank you to everyone who has shown us so much encouragement and support over the last year as we've gotten our products and services tuned in. I can't wait to show you what else we have in store for you in the near future 😉
       
      Talk to you all soon...
