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

Recommended Posts

I am also watching this with interest. I actually purchased a new hmi 2.5 from the same ebay seller and that should be in tomorrow. I also purchased a radio module based on the part number given earlier. The HMI should be programmed for my VIN but not the radio module. I will wait on that unless needed later. I will have to find someone to do that.
Thanks all for the info so far.

Is the part labeled 6 in this diagram the HMI module?  If it is I think the 84278527 (5 in the diagram) is the correct part number that also needs replaced. 

I'm also not seeing anyone that is selling it stating that it may need to be updated to a new VIN.

Yes and Yes. You can tell which one is the HMI because the exploded image shows a circle which represents the little fan at the top of the face of the HMI. 

 

And like I said, it doesn't have to be that exact part number. And it's because most of the people selling at are just selling them from wrecks that they don't specify a VIN reprogram.

 

Most all replacement parts require VIN programming to work, especially radio components. GM has had a "Theftlock" feature for their radios since the 90's. TIS2WEB and similar scanner tools can be used to unlock the radio modules. 

 

My seller specifically said to make sure my part number matches exactly with the one I bought (84278527). 

 

Here's another seller stating it may have to be reprogrammed.

But like I said, a subscription to tis2web with a programmer or a trip to the dealership should take care of you. 

 

I will have my radio hopefully tomorrow and will update everyone on my experience. Stay tuned.

I’ve been following this. Today I pulled the trigger on a 2.5 hmi that I found on eBay for $99+15 for shipping. Ad says they are take offs with CarPlay/Android auto that customers wanted nav. I didn’t care about the built in nav, as I like the iOS map. Sent them my vin as they program it before it ships. So, for the money I don’t see a problem. Will update when I receive and install. They had several in stock to be sold, so if anyone else in interested.

Yea man that's Dokus on eBay. He programmed a few of our HMIs. He does NAV upgrades and sells off the IO5 units. Great price on the HMI even before custom programming. Highly recommend.

 

What year are you putting it in?

I purchased a 2016 cc ltz71 8” screen, Bose that was built during the 2 month shortage of hmi’s that did not have CarPlay. Bought it used with 14k miles and was unaware of the shortage until after purchase.

Bit confusing, so you're saying if we want AA, but don't care about Nav, we just need that 2.5 hmi, and that they program it?

That’s what I’m thinking. The eBay seller stated that the ones that he was selling included cp and aa and he would program my vin to it. Mine should arrive Friday, and of course, I’ll find out and report back when I install it, about 30 minutes after it hits my door!

please do. Never once used the factory Nav. I use AA on my phone before I'd use factory nav. And at this price, seems like a no brainer to swap it

Exactly..all I car about is the CarPlay capabilities using the iOS maps.

You bet. We have different tyoes of radios in our trucks. The ones with the tiny little screens are called I03, the 8 inch without factory NAV are I05 and the 8 inch with factory NAV are IO6. That seller sells off 2.5 HMIs from customers who have a 2016+ I05 radio and want factory NAV. Any 2016+ HMI is capable of AA and ACP. I agree, it is a no brainer. Google Maps is miles ahead of GMs factory NAV and an I06 isn't needed if you have one of the smartphone projection options available.

As long as your truck is a late model 2015 and up all you should have to do is replace the HMI and get a new USB port from a 2016 plus vehicle and get a firmware update to your radio module. 

 

Attached is my original HMI beside the new one provided by the same seller you guys are talking about. It's an easy swap. You will need TORX bits however to remove your glovebox.

If that's your manufacture date then you should be absolutely fine. However, the only way to tell would be by getting your radio firmware and doing the swap.

Anybody doing this swap to the HMI 2.5 WITH Nav? I currently have nav and enjoy leaving it on that screen to see the map of the surrounding area while driving. Is it possible to take the relevant GPS part off the HMI 2.0 and put it on the 2.5? 

Whats the cheapest option for getting the HMI 2.5 with Nav and the updated programming for my VIN?

      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?

      I wanted to let everyone know about a new product we are now offering for the I0B work truck vehicles. We can now offer a navigation solution to these vehicles and at the same time give you the ability to add more camera functionality and HDMI input for video solutions.
      This particular vehicle has been somewhat ignored by most manufactures out there as far as solutions go, but I think you find this one to be pretty slick. What I have really noticed about the I0B system is that the screen resolution and clarity is WAY better than the 8" touchscreen (in my opinion). This not only opens up a whole world of new opportunity for the I03 trucks, but it now gives the current I0B user more possibility.
      I'm eager to get some feed back and what everyone's thoughts are on this. As usual, I wont be in here a ton, but I will make a point to try and check in at least once a day for a while to participate and answer questions.
       
      This first video was made kind of on the fly and with very little time, however it does show the new pieces capability's. I'm really hoping to get a more detailed video put together in the next couple weeks showing more.

      I have a 2016 GMC Sierra capable of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and have been playing with CarPlay now for a little while. Yesterday I borrowed a friends used Android to test Android Auto. I'd be interested in your opinions and I will share my experience.
       
      I have had iPhones for years now. I am deep in the eco-system as my home and work computers are also OSX. Switching is a daunting thought considering my iCloud Contacts are well curated and my Google Contacts are like the wild wild west. I digress.
       
      Generally I have some gripes. CarPlay and Android both require USB and Bluetooth connection to the head unit which is confusing, is USB not enough? I doesn't seem like I could, for instance, connect a secondary Android device for Android Auto that is connected to WiFi via my phone or the car's 4G connect, and have my iPhone connected to the Bluetooth for Siri or even just for phone calls. I would be completely fine with sacrificing the Siri integration from the iPhone if I could get bluetooth audio for phone calls. Maybe I am not doing it right, if you have figured that out let me know. The touch screen is great for a truck head unit. I don't expect anything near what one would get on a new smartphone and I have heard the processor on this newer head unit is faster than the older models which is much appreciated when navigating interfaces. Also, the audio quality for phone calls is superb. Coming from a few year older GTI, people that don't even know I've upgraded don't ever notice I am on the road talking to them anymore. Spot on.
       
      After playing with CarPlay I can say that Apple Maps is much nicer to look at than the standard navigation. Apple hasn't convinced me that it's Maps application is ready for the prime time though. IMHO after reading countless articles and having iPhones back when Google Maps was default -- they never should have gotten into the Maps game. That is arguable, and should, theoretically, get better as they are in development of a car. Phone integration with Siri is fantastic as well. Spotify on CarPlay is a delight to look at. Again miles away from the Media interface on the IntelliLink.
       
      Android auto -- wow. Whereas it's obvious Apple too the iOS idea with big icons -- and it works on the head unit -- it looks like Google went from the ground up. They took their material design philosophy and applied it to the head unit interface. I have to say it is impressive. Overall the user interface is gorgeous to look at. Navigating around to the different areas, Music, Navigation is a breeze. Ok Google mic is always in the top right corner. Icons are clear. Minimal buttons when not needed. Intuitive controls. If it sounds like I am not giving Apple credit here, they have a system and it works. It's worked for years on my phone so I get that. This is my first intro into the new design of Google's apps and I have to say I am staggered. Google maps on the IntelliLink is a marvel. Incredibly smooth. Design refined over years of Google Maps owning (IMHO) the directions arena.
       
      My conundrum is with the whole USB/Bluetooth situation. Android Auto for certain does not work unless you have it connected via USB & bluetooth. Therefore it's not like I can keep an older Android without a cellular plan in the glove box just for Android Auto and still have any integration with the iPhone 6S. That is a huge bummer. I would have no issue buying even a used Android with a cracked screen since I don't need the screen. I'm in a touch position here because of how nested I am in the Apple world and how attractive having Google Maps on that 8" screen. I don't think there is anything else better to look at on that screen.
       
      What is your experience? Have I missed anything?
