OBD Genie Nav Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the OBD Genie nav upgrade kit? If so, what are your thoughts on it?


I'm looking at getting it to 1, upgrade my IOS to have OEM navigation and 2, to active HD Radio. OBD Genie told me that it would activate it on my truck since it didn't come from the factory with it (HD Radio credit on the invoice).

My understanding is that trucks were coming without HD radio due to the chip shortage. Read: your truck is missing some physical hardware component for HD Radio. I could be wrong, but I’m assuming whatever OBD Genie is, it’s just a software change and that won’t help you.

That's what I thought as well about the hardware not being there. However, I asked them on one of their Facebook pages and they said that it would activate the HD radio.


Honestly I don't really care about the HD radio as much as I do the OEM navigation. I was just curious if it would apply the HD radio feature as well.
