Although not an option from the factory, Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is now something you can add to your 2020 Silverado, Sierra, Blazer, and/or Camaro.
Two weeks ago we reported the exciting news that White Automotive and Media Services was working on an upgrade for 2020 model year trucks that didn’t come from the factory with wireless Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Today, we’re letting you know that upgrade is online and officially for sale.
What is this upgrade and what is WAMS?
This upgrade will allow you to use Wireless Android Auto / Apple CarPlay on vehicles that did not come with this feature from the factory.
WAMS is an independent company that offers factory options after vehicle purchase. In this case, they have sourced the replacement module required, custom program the module to your specific vehicle, and setup GM’s backend communication so that the upgrade integrates with your truck as if it was baked in from the factory.
Which vehicles can get the Wireless Android Auto / Apple CarPlay Upgrade
Right now, WAMS is selling upgrades for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado, 2020 GMC Sierra, 2020 Chevy Blazer, and 2020 Chevy Camaro. 2021 models already have this feature. Only IOS and IOT infotainment systems can be upgraded. Unfortunately, base IOR systems are not compatible with this upgrade.
2019 model year vehicles are still under development as they are missing some of the required equipment. WAMS is working on overcoming this problem in the future.
How much does the upgrade cost?
WAMS is offering this upgrade for 2020 Silverado and Sierra owners for $749. Blazer owners can get in on the action for $699. Camaro is similar to trucks at $749.
The upgrade includes navigation if you don’t have it already. Full integration into GM’s backend for a seamless upgrade, and HD radio on Blazer.
How do I get wireless Android Auto or Apple Carplay In My Silverado or Sierra?
Head on over to WAMS and choose the right package for your model vehicle. WAMS will program a brand new radio module for your vehicle’s VIN and features. That’s right, this upgrade includes a brand new radio module with a new one year warranty out of the box. Once WAMS ships that module to you, all you have to do is install it under the glove box area, replacing the stock module that you will remove.
