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

Recommended Posts

I think he potentially might be contracted by MVI to do programming to be honest. Just send him an email and he will sort you out.

I have read this entire thread and I'm still confused as hell. I have a 2014 running io5 non navi. 8" screen. All I want is to add Android auto. If I purchase this what side affects am I looking at and will it work?! Also if anyone has other insight on a cheaper way to accomplish this I appreciate it

That is the most expensive solution and one that people in this thread are attempting to avoid because let's face it, $750 is a lot of cabbage to connect your phone to your truck. It is however the easiest solution and probably 99.99% success rate if you decide to go that route.

I'm waiting to hear back, I've heard from others that he usually responds on the weekend but the site gives weekday hours so Idk. If I don't hear from him by Monday I will see if anyone has his direct email.

Yea do not go this route lol.

 

Go buy an HMI from dokus. 

Get the USB connector GM 13509942

Then buy a compatible radio module GM 84278527 or any from any 2016-2018 Silverado/Sierra.

 

It's unfortunate that programming costs as much as the actual hardware but it's our only option currently while we research more on how to program them ourselves. 

 

Total cost will be $400 - $500 (Parts will be $200-$250, programming will be around $200 - $250)

 

Hope this helps.

Bad news. I got my radio updated and nothing. Only thing I noticed is that MyLink responses a bit faster and CarPlay opens faster. So I guess now my only option is to get a radio module. Just a bit bummed out since I spent a pretty penny updating the radio. 

 

Is is it possible to get a radio module already programmed to your VIN from one of the guys?

Yes. Buy a module and send it to Chris white.

$135. Was hoping it was going to work. So it’s $200 to program plus whatever the radio cost. Man...going to wait a bit before I try doing all that

It’s a 2015.5 (had the text function) 

I was thinking it would work because the OP of the YouTube video posted in an update that he updated his radio and Siri and phone calls worked. I’m will eventually get the radio but for now I’m content with music and navigation working especially with Waze and Google Maps coming next month.

Unfortunately yes. Not sure why CarPlay isn’t working with Siri or phone calls since it’s allowing audio to come from the music apps

I just noticed that you said $200 to program the radio and HMI. So do I have to get both programmed at the same time or can I just get the radio programmed and it will be cheaper? Obviously I got the HMI already programmed to my VIN

He replied to my email that they needed both so the software will match. I also got my hmi programmed to my VIN already so that was a bummer to hear. So my $400 budget is now up to $430ish.

      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?
