**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A SERVICE FOR YOUR FACTORY MODULES AS THEY ARE NOT CAPABLE OF CAR PLAY/ANDROID AUTO OPERATION. YOU MUST SOURCE NEW TO YOU MODULES (WHICH MAY BE NEW OR USED) FROM THE LIST BELOW OR CHOOSE FOR US TO PROVIDE YOU FACTORY NEW HARDWARE**
This service allows 2016+ HMI and Radio modules to function properly in an older 2013-2015.5 IO5 / IO6 HMI equipped GM vehicle as well as an IO4 when utilizing a customer supplied 8″ screen.
You may choose to supply your own hardware and save some money (Please confirm part numbers before ordering this service or any hardware with our “best practices” list below) OR we can supply a set of BRAND NEW (not factory seconds or used/salvage/second hand) units to you. If we supply the units they carry the full factory warranty as well as our limited warranty.
In addition to the HMI and Radio modules the only other thing you’ll need is a 2016+ USB hub that goes in your console to replace your non compatible older version. This is the USB module where you plug your devices into that has two ports and likely an SD Card reader these vary by console style. Generally the part number for this unit is 13519224 and can be found many different places online including Amazon.
Other modules outside of the “best practices” list may be able to be utilized but you may not get all of the features, have features that are not compatible with your vehicle or may hamper future upgrades. If you are truly unable to find any of the modules listed below drop us a line from the “Contact Us” tab with what you are able to locate and we can go through what (if any) detriments you may have.
We here at WAMS do not recommend and will not participate in doing an HMI only upgrade. We recommend a minimum of a properly retrofit programmed HMI and Radio module. If you desire a full OEM proper Car Play/Android Auto experience you will need to replace the HMI, Radio AND Instrument Cluster (Or opt for our UDD cluster upgrade) to gain the use of steering wheel controls and Siri/Google voice commands otherwise you will be pressing the screen constantly; this is a great time to consider a Denali Cluster upgrade.
If you have a 2016 that was built WITHOUT Car Play/Android auto please Click Here for a specific product just for those applications!
If you are ordering a navigation HMI but do not have factory navigation please note you will need to provide a GPS antenna or factory onstar signal splitter and cables. We can help you source these if need be!
There are other unique HMI and Radio programming options as well available as custom orders via an email quote.
Please make sure you disconnect the battery from the vehicle before reinstalling your freshly programmed modules. While not required this minimizes the possibility for damage or DTC’s.
