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

So the radio module would have to be done after install and can't be flashed to your VIN? And then my XM subscription will still be linked to my truck? So I'm at $224 plus whatever the dealer charges me.

It can all be installed at the same time. And no, you'll have to move your current XM subscription (I believe) to the new radio ID. It's located on the label of the module. Like this.

Just call XM and they'll gladly move your sub. 

 

And honestly, the real money here comes from the insane cost that dealers charge for programming fees. Up to $150 an hour. And god knows they'll take their sweet ass time. 

 

As for getting everything programmed to your VIN, the seller of the I05 radios will do that upon sale, and we are still waiting to confirm whether or not the reprogram is necessary for the radio modules. I will update tomorrow.

 

Good luck.

I believe dokus will flash the radio modules, too.  He originally quoted me a price of $299.

 

Also, my dealer cut me a deal on my first radio update and only charge me $60, so at $224 plus getting lucky at the dealer you're already at $284

He quoted me $130 for a flash if I provided the module (which is ****ed because the entire HMI I got from him cost less and came with the flashing service). 

 

I'm hoping I can program myself with the VCX Nano and all will work well.

Yeah, sorry, that was confusing.  When I initially talked to him about the HMI, he quoted a price to me to purchase the radio module from him flashed to my VIN at $299.

I guess I'll see what the dealer says then. At $284 I'd be very comfortable doing this, I set a $400 limit for Android Auto after seeing companies charging $750. The screen mirroring intrigues me but I'm a budget person

Keep in mind, that $60 was a cut rate from my dealer.  We've bought a lot there and he's interested in the HMI swap himself.  Like @th3magpi3 said, it could be in the neighborhood of $150.

That's why I'm saying if you can find one on eBay programmed to your VIN already for around the $284 price, you might want to go that way.

I'm sitting pretty at $217.92 USD for the radio, USB and I05 HMI modules shipped (within the USA).

 

Tack on an extra $114 for a VCX Nano and a $40 subscription to TIS2WEB and you're at $371 all said and done (plus you get the knowledge and ability to program the truck yourself). A dealer will charge close to $150 if not more to replace both modules and program them. I like to do things myself so I opted for the self programming.

 

If the radio module doesn't need to be programmed to the VIN, and our HMI's come pre-programmed, you're sitting at just the flat cost of around that $200 - $250 range, which isnt bad at all. Cannot believe what the guys at MVI and Digital Dash Solutions charge for their upgrades. I know they use new parts but even still. Insanity.

I'm forever on conference calls in the vehicle and coordinating resources in the field so not having full functionality isn't an option for me.  I'm actually hoping to get texts read back to me so I can be that much more productive while on the move.

Exactly the purpose of android auto and apple carplay. You can speak your replies as well. 

 

Also, with the upgraded 2.5 HMI you get access to the Intellilink texting app, which isn't too bad either.

Dude! Calgary, hell yea! Go flames. (Just read your bio lol)

 

As for your question, I just spoke with the seller. an I06 NAV HMI is going to suck for your wallet (Especially with the shit USD-CAD exchange rate).

 

The seller charges $699USD for a NAV HMI. vs. the like $100-$150 charge for the I05 non-nav. 

 

When was your truck assembled. Any idea? 

I'm originally from BC! Where in BC are you? (take the smoke back)

Not sure when the truck was assembled, I bought it December 2014.

I know my dealer well enough to get a straight answer and I'm comfortable bringing my truck to them in whatever configuration makes it fastest for them and cheapest for me. Even at $130-150 for a flash I'm under budget and I can be slightly more confident it was done right. I'd buy the software myself but only if I knew I could make money with it.

Out on the island!

 

I know man, red sunsets the last few nights. 

 

Yea, looks like you'll need the radio upgrade as well. Not just the HMI and USB.

I did the upgrade about three weeks ago. Same results as everyone else. Purchased 2.5 HMI from the same seller. In a 2014 Silverado, had to update USB port, CarPlay works 90%. Siri and I do not hear each other, no voice call audio when connected to CarPlay. I saw the original YouTube poster updated the radio firmware to solve the issues, but I noticed he is in a 2015. I had an appointment this weekend to have the radio module firmware updated, but after reading through these replies, and am going to cancel and see what others report.

Hmm, in my 2015, it will read the texts to me. Hows this different in the 2.5?

      Android auto has stopped coming up in the console display on my 2016 Silverado.The app comes up on my phone when I connect to the USB port but will not display on the console, the phone does charge though. Google search says replace the cable for the phone, that didnt work. Took it to the Dealer and they have no idea either. Any help would be much appreciated!

      Yes, you did indeed read that correctly.
       
      You can now have all of the proper steering wheel controls inside of Car Play / Android Auto without having to physically upgrade your cluster. This service will still require you to ship your cluster in (and of course we will turn them as fast as humanly possible) or you may choose to source a used one as these are plentiful and honestly pretty cheap! Just make sure you get with us prior to purchasing a used unit to make sure everything matches as it should as there are many different types and combos such as red/blueish green lighting, Z71, All Terrain etc

      Hi everybody!
       
      As some of you may know, I've been working hard to help the lovely members of this forums program some of their vehicles to add unique and exciting features to their trucks and cars.
       
      Well, I'm happy to announce a project I've been working very hard on over the last few months. Welcome to Coastal Flash!
       

       
      Final_Short.mp4
       
      We have been spending countless hours taking the time to develop new products and features for our line of vehicles and add them all to an easy to use marketplace for all members of the forum to enjoy.
       
      We're happy to offer free shipping on all kit purchases across North America and also are happy to provide phone support to anybody who purchases our services. Plus, we will beat any price quoted by our competitors on kits and programming services. It's not about being the cheapest, but about making these upgrades more affordable for the average user. The entire reason this market was formed was because we felt the current market was monopolized and overcharging for their services. Coastal Flash is here to put an end to that.
       
      Currently, we offer:
       
      Both 2.0-2.5 HMI Carplay/Android Auto kits & Programming Denali Cluster Programming and Upgrades Video in Motion Unlocks Rear Camera in Motion Unlock & Harness Custom HMI Boot Animations and Splash Screens Amplifier repair Late 90's - mid 2010's Radio Linking and Testing Navigation Updates Custom Reverse Engineering Services And many more services...  
      So please, if you are interested in getting any of these upgrades done to your vehicle, I encourage you to take a look at what we've been up to!
       
      Feel free to take a look through some of the upgrade threads posted here on the forums and look at the reviews some customers have been leaving for our services. I think their words speak for themselves. 
       
      I'm also very open to ideas or suggestions from forum members of what you'd like to see installed into your vehicles, so feel free to send me a PM or an email and let me know what mod you'd like to see done next. Nothing is too big or too small.
       
      I'll be consistently monitoring this thread and updating it with new services and discoveries as we make them available.
       
      Oh, and one more thing, we're offering some special discounts for Black Friday and Cyber Monday so feel free to stop by, take a look around and save some cash on that new upgrade you've been wanting to get.
       
      Thanks for stopping by and thank you to everyone who has shown us so much encouragement and support over the last year as we've gotten our products and services tuned in. I can't wait to show you what else we have in store for you in the near future 😉
       
      Talk to you all soon...
