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

Recommended Posts

For anyone interested I believe I will have the ability to do programming very soon. I have made quite a bit of progress and hope to have the reprogramming method refined and ready within the next few weeks. Please stay tuned. You won't wanna miss this ;)

Sounds good and good luck. I’m hoping that you’re able to just program the radio and it will work instead of having to also reprogram the HMI along with the radio.

I`m hoping that will be the case as well. I`m waiting on some hardware to come in. I will commend the people offering the programming, it is certainly not easy. There are a lot of hurdles to get over and there is quite a substantial initial investment for everything that`s required.

 

I`m just waiting on a few pieces of hardware to make their way up to the great white north and by the time I have them I should be able to finish my testing. I will continue to update the forums with my progress. Thank you all for following along!

In the case that both need to be programmed together I`ll be happy to offer the viewers of this thread a 2 for 1 programming for their patience.

 

I too have a dokus programmed HMI so I`ll be able to tell without a shadow of a doubt if both units need to be programmed together or if we can program the radio independent from the HMI. Cheers!

Don’t recall if this has been mentioned, but I stumbled across this by accident. So the three obvious ways of summoning Siri do not work (home button, touch screen button, and steering wheel). I did discover by total accident tonight that “Hey, Siri” does work. I get the audible chime, but still no voice feedback. I can say “Hey, Siri give me directions to work” or “Play some metal” and it works, albeit a little slow. I will experiment some more tomorrow to try and determine how far that can work and what mic (phone or truck) is being used. 

 

Also adding to that, about a week ago, Siri turn by turn played through the sound system for one short trip. I got excited, but haven’t been able to duplicate that since, but it gives me hope. Today, it would lower the music volume at every turn, but no directions were audible.

I think I may have the solution to the no audio issue. It seems that Apple CarPlay has THREE volumes. One for Siri, one for Navigation and the other for music or maybe that was Phone. Let's start with Siri. Do something to make Siri reply to you. Try to make it something that will make her talk for awhile. WHILE she is talking, turn up the volume on the radio. It must be exactly when she is talking. If you don't get it just right, you will be changing the radio volume, not Siri. Another suggestion is to adjust the volume controls on your phone. In navigation try the same thing. I have also read that there is a setting in Apple Maps for audio. The settings if I remember are: No Volume, low, medium and loud. Someone else solved their issue by resetting the phone while connected to Carplay.

 

All this applies to Android Auto too.

 

The problems I have been reading in this thread are issues across the board with many other brands. It is issues with Carplay and Android Auto. NOT isolated to our trucks.

 

Do a web search about this and you will find pretty much the same. I used Siri no volume Carplay as my search terms. I don't have time right now to expound on this right now. Gotta run.

Well I installed my dokus HMI. No problems there. However the USB port that I purchased must not be compatible with AA. I have the projection icon, but when I plug in and turn on AA, I get nothing. At least it was only $20 for the port.

Woody, what was the part number of the usb connector you purchased. Also, do you have Android auto installed on your phone? You need to download it. A lot of people think it will just work when they plug it in like carplay does.

What trim is your 2015? Do you have a center console? What cable are you using, OEM, aftermarket cable? What kind of phone do you have?

 

Let's try to get this solved for you.

It is a LT. I have the jump seat console. That is the USB I replaced. I used an oem and an aftermarket cable. I have a Galaxy S7 edge. My phone worked with AA in my mother in law's Buick, so the only thing that I can think of is that I bought the wrong port. Or does the battery need to be disconnected and reconnected?

Your comment didn't go unnoticed! Just doing a bit of research on the subject, and while YES, AA and ACP do have different volumes based on the task at hand, the problem most certainly lies in the module not being compatible rather than there being a software issue. 

 

I ran some tests to check out the fixes in THIS THREAD that I found when I Googled the issue you suggested. 

 

Unfortunately none of them worked. Furthermore, to be more convinced it's the module and not the device, I can unplug my phone and plug it directly into another car that has AA and everything runs and plays fine, I'll unplug it and put it into my truck, and nothing. I tried adjusting the volume knob during a song, using the steering wheel paddle volume controls, Spotify volume controls, android volume. Nothing.

Looks like we need to hold out for the radio module programming.

Nope you have the proper receptacle.

 

2 things I can think of. First verify the time on your radio is correct. If it's not, Android Auto will give you an error. 

 

Second, if the LT without the console has a secondary USB plug (I'm unsure, I haven't worked on that model yet), try plugging the device into that. I was able to get AA to show up in projection at the very minimum using the stock USB plug. If there isn't another USB plug, try swapping back in your old USB plug and test. 

 

Some other things to try - Get an iphone and plug it in to see if carplay shows up. I'm sure you know someone with an iphone.

 

Also, is your phone charging when you plug it in. Does the aux input work? Can you play audio over a usb stick?

 

Keep us posted.

      I downloaded Apple IOS 13 beta, the good news CarPlay for Spotify is much improved it now shows album covers, kind of cool. The bad news even with the 805 update and IOS 13 it still turns down the ringer to zero if you have adjust with buttons turned on. It also still changes the volume control. I now wonder if this is a GM problem or an Apple problem. I hope someone fixes it, I just almost missed a very important call.

      Hello All,
       
      I just bought 2017 sierra with the 7 inch touchscreen that advertisted as compatible with apple Carplay and Android auto. For whatever reason myself, the dealer, and the GM infotainment support can't figure out why it isn't working with apple. We can get the radio to work with Android Auto and connects right away as it should so I think that confirms that the USB port is not faulty and is correctly transferring data. I am using an Iphone 8 IOS ver 12.4 with the factory cable in good condition(no fraying of the cable) and have confirmed that the phone cable combination works in my girlfriends 2017 Chevy Cruze. We have also tried it with different cable combinations and different IPhones.
       
      Occasionally when an Iphone is plugged into it a message will appear on the radio saying "Playback Source is not available" and I have attached a picture of the message.
       
      Just a quick rundown of things I have tried to help with troubleshooting:
      Made sure that the Apple Carplay is on in the settings of the radio. Double checked that "press home for Siri is enabled" Double checked that the screen time settings weren't preventing carplay from working forgot phone in bluetooth settings and re-paired it. factory reset of radio tried different Iphones (IPhone 6, IPhone 8, IPhone XR, IPhone XS) tried different cables (and confirmed they all worked in the 2017 Chevy Cruze) Made sure the phones worked with Apple Carplay in the 2017 Cruze. tried all USB ports in the truck.  
      Appreciate all the help

      Hey everybody,
       
      Just wanted to check in again and let you all know about another exciting service we're happy to be offering... The Denali Cluster Upgrade!
       
      Many of you have requested this upgrade and I'm happy to report we have successfully completed the mod.

      If you're interested in this, you'll need to know a few things.

      Acquire a new or used GMC Denali cluster. This can be a Sierra or a Yukon cluster. (Please note: If you buy your cluster 2nd hand, DO NOT plug it into your vehicle.)
       
      Diesel/Gas: The cluster will need to match some aspects of your current vehicle. For example, if you have a gas spec vehicle you'll need to find a cluster that has an RPM gauge that goes to 6000rpm. If you have a diesel spec vehicle (2500, 3500) you'll need to find a cluster that has an RPM gauge that goes to 5000rpm. Both shown below.
       


      MPH/KPH: We can do BOTH USA and Metric market clusters. If you live in the USA, you'll want to get a cluster that has a speedometer that goes up to 140. If you live in a metric country, you'll want a cluster that goes to 200. Both options shown below.
       

       
      COLOR: If you have a GMC and you want to keep your RED color theme, you'll want to find a 2016 GMC Denali cluster. If you have a Silverado, have done a blue conversion, or have upgraded your HMI to the newer blue theme and you're looking for a BLUE gauge theme, you'll want a 2017-2018 Denali cluster.
       
      Android Auto/Carplay: For all of you Android Auto users wanting the use of your volume and track selection flippers back, this fixes it!!! once installed you'll once again have access to your flippers. This also allows for the long press of the voice button on the steering wheel to activate Google Assistant as well as Siri for Apple Carplay.
       
      Year Matching: There has been a lot of talk that all modules that are installed into the vehicle need to be of the same year. After extensive testing we have found this to be mainly false. As long as the modules are of the same generation you should be A-OK for the install. That means if you have a 2.0 HMI vehicle (2014-2015) you can use a 2014-2015 Denali cluster. If you have a vehicle with a 2.5 HMI (Carplay Enabled, 2016-2018) you can use any 2016-2018 cluster so long as it matches your vehicle specs as mentioned above. And if you have a 2014-2015 and would like to upgrade to a blue themed cluster while adding Android Auto / Carplay, we are more than happy to facilitate the upgrade all at once.

      Please reach out to me if you have any questions or are interested in getting this mod done to your own vehicle. Thanks for watching and enjoy the demo.

      Has anyone recently had issues with AndroidAuto not connected to their phone?  I've tried three different USB cables (all which charge the phone), reinstalled AA and removed all Bluetooth connections and reconnected the phone.  I suspect AA recently updated and now we are waiting on GM to update the infotainment system. When I touch AA on the screen it says, please connect a phone with AA app installed.  2019 Silverado RST with 8 inch infotainment, connecting a Samsung S8 with AA version 4.4.592344.  Yes, it had been working before, and one of the cables I tried was the one it previously functioned on.

      First time poster. Have a 19 Trail Boss LT and when connected to CarPlay get a notice that says “access to contacts limited” but I can see my contacts behind the notice.  Then randomly it will work and I have access to my contacts.  I have attached a picture of what I see. Anyone else experienced this?  I have used multiple cables and it occurs on different phones.
