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

Recommended Posts

I just ordered the USB module. Theoretically it will be here Saturday.

I always thought the upgrade had to be programmed to your vin, I have no use for nav which most of them want to sell you, I just want Android Auto. If I buy a 2.5 module and usb port this will be plug and play?

It has to be programmed to your vin otherwise it won’t work.  Digital dash Solutions is where I got my CarPlay HMI.

Supposedly, the guy I ordered it from on EBay programmed it to my VIN. 

 

If that that ends up not being the case, this forum, YouTube and eBay will know the truth.

Read through the YouTube comments. It seems that if your truck is a 2015 or newer your odds are much better. 

 

It it does appear the android requires a little more bandwidth than iOS, but the upgraded 2015’ or newer seems to be able to handle it better.

I think you’ve gotten an error message if the HMI wasn’t programmed to your VIN. I think you’re right on having to have at least a 2015.5 model in order for CarPlay to work. Anything before that, the hardware probably can’t handle the phone projection correctly

It is crazy to me that in the course of 3 model years they changed so much with just the radio. I would love to have android auto or mirroring but I'm at the point where if I keep adding stuff from the 16+ I might as well have just bought one. Anything over $400 is going to be a hard pass for me when it comes to this radio.

Wait this out with me. If I have to go full tilt I will have spent:

$115 for the HMI, delivered

$24 for the USB, delivered

~$299 for the radio module if I have to go that far. 

 

That's far better than the ~$600-700 I would have had to spend to replace it all with aftermarket. 

 

I'm into this truck for two or three more years so this is worth it to me.

I went ahead and ordered the HMI and USB connector for my 2015.5 

It should get here Thursday. I will provide an update after I install it. Hopefully all goes and  I don’t need to get the radio updated but if need be I’ll do it.

Ok, so I received the 13509942 plug today, plugged it in, plugged my phone in and...  it worked! (kinda)

 

I have music, I have maps, i have SMS (kinda).  Siri is muted.  The interface activates and the line squiggles, she can hear me, but she apparently has laryngitis.

 

Here's the disclaimer, I'm running the beta of iOS 12 on my phone.  I don't want to revert because I've been on it for a while and I would have to go back to my most recent backup from like 2 months ago.  Too much data loss for me. 

 

Right now I have what I wanted out of Carplay.  I can still listen to music and apple maps shows up on the screen.  

 

Once iOS 12 officially releases and the new version of Carplay releases with it, I'll assess the damage then and proceed accordingly.

 

*EDIT* Forgot to add, since Siri is muted, she reads your SMS messages to you, so it all works you just can't hear what she's saying.

Glad it worked it out for you (sort of). I

will post an update of my experience once I install it. BTW how hard is it to replace the USB connector. Any tips?

If you have the armrest jump seat, take the rubber insert out of the plastic cupholder piece and take the 4 screws and the plastic piece out.  There is a USB plug and a 10 pin plug, the 10 pin is tied off inside pretty short and you wont be able to connect it without removing the cup holders.  The rubber piece just pulls out, it doesn't feel like it will, but t does.

When I posted that earlier, I was home with my 4 year old daughter and didn't really have a chance to hammer on it and see what worked and what didn't.

 

I was able to take a drive tonight and the only thing that doesn't work is Siri talking to me, there's just no audio.  Siri can hear me, and can do what I ask her to do.  I asked for directions to the local grocery store, there are three of them, three options popped up and I chose the one I wanted.

 

That said, the only thing I currently don't have is Siri reading my text messages to me.  That's probably a deal breaker for most but I don't get many texts, and I really don't care if I can't hear them while I'm driving.

 

I started this to get two things, the apple music interface on my truck stereo, which I got, and apple maps, which I now have.  If Siri ever graces me with her voice in my truck, it will be a bonus.

      Sorry my prices kinda going up as these parts are not cheap trying to find a cheaper source but my price is going up as I’m paying more for them now too. HMU maybe we can work on something thanks. Please verify that the parts are what your vehicle needs and will work before purchasing thanks . Selling as a set will not split up sorry  and you will need to have the hmi and radio module programmed before installing to work with your vehicle

      I’ve been reading up on how to upgrade my infotainment center to include Apple CarPlay, but I’m wondering if any of you can tell me the exact parts I need to purchase. I have a 2015 Yukon. I know I need the IO6 2.5 HMI module, but I’m not sure what part number. I have found multiple different ones on eBay that look just like what I need, but they each have different part numbers. I’m not sure if they are all interchangeable. Also, do I need a new radio module and USB port for this to work?

      Hey, love this site, new owner of a TrailBoss custom and wish I would have gotten the LT with more little bells and whistles, but I was too cheap! Now I'm trying to manipulate as many functions and additional features as possible. I'm replacing the center console thanks to this site, now I'm trying to get text messaging from my limited infotainment. Any ideas? I'm anxiously hoping for many!! Thanks guys😎

      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
       
      Jacob
