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


Recommended Posts

Anyone with a 14-15 who did this upgrade using Android Auto and a Samsung phone have any issues with voice activation to ok google via the phone picking up my voice? My phone did an update and now it doesnt work. But does work with bluetooth and if I push the mic button on the bottom right of the screen. I was thinking of getting the 16 Red denali cluster so that feature would work on my steering wheel.  Then I'd have to sell my 15 Red Denali cluster.

 

It is such an inconvenience to have to reach ALL THE WAY OVER to push it. Lol.

 I have a Note 8, but I would suspect it's not necessarily as much the phone as it is the Google voice inconsistencies. I did the entire upgrade including the cluster so I could use the steering wheel controls and it worked great. Had to take the cluster out to have something reworked on it. And for the time I didn't have the cluster the Google Voice just didn't work as well as I would have hoped. So from my own experience, I would recommend anyone who does the upgrade, do the cluster upgrade or get the existing cluster programmed so you can use the steering wheel controls. So much easier

I’m sure this has been covered somewhere in the 74 pages of this thread.... but it takes a lot to go through them.....so my apologies....

 

im starting to gather parts to upgrade my 14 to be CarPlay capable. I’m going to buy a module and a 2.5 HMI and have it programmed. I can’t seem to find a good list of module part numbers that will work.  WAMS only has 4 part numbers listed on their website and literally none of the modules on eBay match up to any of those numbers. Can anyone shed light on this? I know it needs to be a U2M or U2K but there’s a wide range of part numbers with those RPO codes. 
 

im planning on using costal to program once I get parts in

The WAMS list is a best practices list so that they maintain full warranty compliance. They can work with you on fitment of other modules. Send them an inquiry on their website. They’ll take care of ya.

Did you have the cluster reprogrammed?

I started with my 14 silverado dash cluster and upgraded to 2.5 Android Auto and a 14-15 Denali cluster.  At that time, we pretty much had to get the matching year to make it work. Which meant the steering wheel controls for Android Auto would NOT work. Which wasnt a big deal. So, when I hooked everything up, I was stoked when all I had to do was say OK GOOGLE so my phone could hear it, and it worked perfectly. But since my phone updated, it doesnt respond if I have my cable hooked up. My phone also used to have android auto on it. That is now gone also.  I shot a message to WAMS, and the only way to do it from now, is to sell my cluster and find a 16 Denali "RED", not blue, cluster and have it programmed for my truck.

I have a 2014 Z71 silverado that i'm waiitng on the 2.5 upgrade to arrive from dokus, my question is about the cluster, will it only work with a denali cluster? or can I get a 2017-2018 z71 cluster and have it programmed? 

Your 2014 cluster will work, but will need to be re-programmed for the volume and skip buttons to work with Android Auto. The buttons will function as normal with the radio and bluetooth music streaming.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality relies on the newer 2.5 HMI hardware and Radio Module for it to function. In addition, it used to be, that you needed to upgrade the cluster too to allow the “press and hold” button on the wheel to interact with your phone. That is no longer the case.

I did a video showing that here -


So to get CP/AA to be fully integrated, you need the cluster to be programmed and the HMI hardware.

is that the only thing that will not work if I do not upgrade the cluster?

      Hello everyone,
       
      I just purchased a used 2018 Chevy Silverado, After doing so research I found that the cup holders in this truck are not removable unlink its earlier models. I am looking for a way to hide the cable that is coming from the inside of the centre console to my phone, that sits in the little rubber holder but I want it to be clean and not have a wire just hanging all over.
       
      I have nothing online as to any sort of way to run that cable in such a way that it is hidden. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to accomplish this clean look?
       
      Thanks for any input

      New to this forum, so please excuse my ignorance if this has already been answered. I looked to see if there were answers elsewhere, but haven't found them to all of my questions. I recently purchased a 2015 Suburban LTZ and would like to add CarPlay primarily. My questions are:
       
      1. My truck was built 3/24/15. I have seen conflicting reports that I can just replace the HMI module (upgrade from 2.0 to 2.5) vs also having to replace the box under the center console. There was some discussion that later build dates can get away with not replacing the other module. My truck does have the Text option on the MyLink screen if that helps any. Are there particular part numbers I need to retain use of the Rear seat entertainment system or do all the boxes work with it too? 
      2. Since new modules require programming is this something the dealer can do without a lot of hassle (i.e. I am adding a non-original part number to my truck. are they going to give me crap about it)? Also, are there aftermarket tools that I can use to do this? I don't have anything like that, but if I have to go pay the dealer $150 for them to program my box, I would consider just buying a scan tool system for future use
      3. As I mentioned, my truck has the rear seat entertainment system. Are there options for adding HDMI or other inputs for this system? Not sure my family will ever use it in its current config (we do almost all streaming these days). i have seen screen mirroring solutions, but my understanding is they only allow mirroring on the dash screen and not the RSE screens. Any options there? 
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Hi all, Had my 2020 LT, 5.3L, Conv package I and II (TX i.e All-star edition) for for 1 week tomorrow and I've noticed quite the oddity when using aa with turn by turn directions from G. maps. The voice reciting the directions will change from Female to Male. Sometimes even between the same sentence, i.e Male says in 2 miles, and Female says, turn right. I swear, I'm not yanking ur chains. I've seen a post about it on Google forums and Reddit and have tried the troubleshooting listed to no avail. Anyone else seen something like this?

      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!
