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

Recommended Posts

I’d have to tell the dealer it’s my truck, my $150, just do what I ask.

Well the only reason I went there is because I dropped off the wife and kid at a store and that dealership was nearby. I’m definitely going to a different one next week. 

All good. I'm just patiently waiting on your results. I think I have 2015.5. I have the text message icon.

How much did it cost to swap

My 14 Sierra has the HD radio stations. Even after I updated to the 2.5 module (17 Silverado), I still have the HD radio.

The one thing I did lose with the 2.0 to 2.5 upgrade was the ability to pause & rewind music.
How much did it cost to get the new module?

Do people think the 2019 module might be used on the 2014s?

You still have the 2.0 HMI just an updated version. I’m on the last process of completing the project which is getting the radio module updated. 

 

Thanks.  Looks like we have the same truck, so I'm (not so) patiently waiting to see how it goes for you.

Ok..I received my eBay 2.5 hmi from dokus223 yesterday and just finished installing. Works as promised. So far I haven’t found anything I’ve lost, with the exception pausing and rewinding songs, which I never used. Siri hears me and responds, phone calls sound great and I now can use my iOS maps on screen. Happy customer!

What year was your truck? It could be a big help if you would be interested in pulling your radio module so we have a better idea of the build date cutoff for radio modules that work out of the box.

 

Thanks and congrats.

Also, for anyone concerned, my 2014's radio module that didn't work was manufactured in June 2014 GM P/N: 13592804

I'll add my 2014 P/N next time I get a moment to pull the dash open. I'm not ready to give up on this yet.

My truck is a 2016, with a June build date if I recall. I’ll surely pull my radio and get the build date off it. Maybe help someone down the line.

Did you not have a 2.5 HMI previously? Were you in the shortage?

Ahh sounds good. Yea, let us know a part number when you can. Removal is easy. a 7mm socket and a gift card to pry off trim was all I needed.

I did the MVI route so the cost was higher, $900+.
My truck originally came from Canada and it didn’t have the Pandora & weather apps.
So aside from CarPlay, I was able to add Pandora, weather, and texting apps by going to the 2.5.

The biggest PITA of it all was dealing with Sirius/XM and adding services that my radio didn’t originally come with. For some reason, they can’t seem to understand that these modules get swapped out, so if the VIN no longer matches the original radio ID, they become extremely difficult to work with.
It took several escalated phone calls to get the XM services that I wanted added. Even the regional XM manager was being difficult & insinuating that I may have stolen the module from another vehicle or that I was up to something illegal.
It certainly was not as simple as providing the radio ID & telling them what subscriptions you want... at least not in my case.

How would XM even know what your vin was? 

 

Did you attempt to swap over your subscription and then they flagged you or did you try to start a new sub on the new radio ID?

I believe the radio IDs are assigned to a particular VIN right from the get go. (I had to give MVI my VIN so it could be programmed to the 2.5 module.) 

I had a previous trial subscription to XM before my upgrade. At that time, I had requested the Travel Link package & they told me that my radio was not compatible. After I installed the MVI module, I had another free trial with everything for about 3 months. After it had expired, I called XM to renew the subscription and again to add the Travel Link package. Again, they told me it wasn’t available for my vehicle. I gave them the new radio ID & told them that I’ve been receiving Travel Link for the past three months. They told me that’s impossible, that my new radio ID was for a 2017 Silverado & that my current vehicle was a 2014 Sierra and therefore was not eligible for the package that I wanted. I told them that I swapped modules & that’s where they just couldn’t comprehend any further.

They said the modules can’t be swapped as they are assigned to a particular VIN & won’t work in any other vehicles. I told them that the module was reprogrammed to my VIN. They disputed that as their records show (again) that’s its assigned to a 2017 Silverado and again, I explained that it was reprogrammed to my 2014 Sierra VIN.

The back and forth continued through several phone calls & was the ultimate perpetuating mess that resembled the movie Groundhog Day.

I also had a few different dealerships try renewing my subscription to no avail. They gave me the name of the regional XM rep and said that he could get this going. He was of zero help and only had questioning that was short of a criminal interrogation.

Ultimately, it took Anthony from MVI to call the XM automotive division & tell them to basically just activate the signal & don’t ask any questions.

I’ve since had my service disconnected a couple times & it’s about a hour long phone call with about 2-3 different reps to get it working again.

It’s a big time ass ache anytime I have to deal with XM & I absolutely dread it.

 

ETA: apologies for the word wall.

      Having issues with booth the Carplay function and Buetooth software in 2016 Silverado Z71.  Started with the Carplay function no longer connecting. The carplay app no longer shows on the MyLink display screen nor does the vehicle mylink connection show on the iphone 8 plus device. The phone does an endless search for a vehicle with carplay..  Have tried new IOS USB cable and still no connection.  The voice activation feature works when connected but only for phone calls.  No other media or apps within the iphone show on the Mylink display screen.
      Then the automatic bluetooth concection stopped.  Once the bluetooth automatic connection stopped all music and other media source from the iphone stopped.. I can manually delete the bluetooth connection and manually connect each time i enter and start the vehicle.There is on iphone option as a media choice on the menu with in the MyLink system.  I have been to the dealer twice and they tell me its my iphone with out checking the mylink softwared or checking of updates.    
      I have reset and disconnected all mylink features and bluetooth connections in the Iphone. i have done a network reset on the iphone.  I have reset or rebooted everything I can with in the iphon except for a hard reset which will completely reset the iphone back to original settings.   I have been to the Apple store and had them double check if there is any issues with the Iphone.  All software is up to date there are no restrictions set on the iphone side.  
      I have searched the internet for nay issues with Iphone and MyLink software.   There have been some connectioning issues since the last IOS 12 update,  I have done everything suggested to resolve these issues to no avial. It has to be an issue with the MyLink software.
       
      Was hoping someone has a solution or suggestion before returning to the dealership.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I've been meaning to post my experiences with Android Auto in my 19 trail boss. I have a Pixel 2 XL phone running the latest version of Android OS (v.9 with Dec. security patch) along with the latest version of Android Auto (v.3.8.584564). I also have the latest version of Chevy Mylink installed on my truck.
       
      So I have been experiencing random android auto app closes while listing to Spotify or using Google Maps for navigation. I have tried troubleshooting the problem by switching usb cables, which I am using type c, wiping my "managed cars" from within android auto, I also have tried factory resetting my phone completely without restoring from a backup. Some days are better then others for how long the app will display without randomly closing. When this problem does occur I can usually just select "Android Auto" on Mylink and the app will launch again, sometimes. I wasn't sure if there are any other daily Android Auto users out there having the same trouble as me on their trail boss?
       
      *Edit: I also experience audio issues in AA every now and again. I will plug my phone in and play a song through Spotify using AA and the audio's volume will be lower then the FM radio. I've tried making the adjustments using my phone's volume buttons but it doesn't result in a change through Mylink. I unplug the USB cable and plug it back in and like magic the audio is much louder.
       
      I'll update my post with additional when I get the chance. I appreciate any thoughts or solutions.
      Thanks!

      I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 1500.  The truck has factory installed radio, navigation, touch screen etc.  I am told I already have the I06 module, so why don't I have carplay?  And why do I have to buy another I06 to add carplay?  can't I just do a software update?

      New to GM lineup... Coming from another brand (Ford with Sync) I was used to receiving semi-regular updates for the software... Does GM put out updates for Intellink? If they do is this something that only dealers can update? I looked on the GM owners sight and couldn't find any info.

      Thanks

      I purchased my truck in February of 2016, and used Apple CarPlay from day one, and never had an issue. Fast forward two years to an Android phone. I plug in, expecting the same easy set up as my work truck (2018 Silverado), and nothing happens. I was confused, as I remember when I bought the truck it was advertised as supporting Apple Carplay/Android Auto. After checking through several forums and MyLink version numbers, I realized it needed an update. Called the dealer and set an appointment, but when I arrived, I was told this was a "customer pay" update, (if I remember correctly, as of April 2017?) and it would cost me  ≈$50 to regain the functionality I purchased with the truck. Anyone else have this issue, and if so, what was the result?
