**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.

    Just got my new equipment today. installed it and it’s awesome. I now have a more updated system than before. The service they provide is amazing. It’s also much cheaper and better recommended than there competitors. Overall very pleased with the product and will be buying more upgraded parts for my 2014 Silverado

    WOWZA! I just installed this kit (along with a Denali Cluster upgrade and USB port*) in my 2015 GMC Sierra and am blown away. The folks @ WAMS are total rockstars…answered my 15 million questions quickly and waited patiently as I gathered my funds…when I finally completed the purchase, turn around time was communicated upfront and everything arrived in less than a week! Admittedly, this upgrade wasn’t cheap, but well worth it. After reviewing a few YouTube videos (PGAMBOA) on the process of switching everything out, it was easy to complete the necessary steps. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service and product. NOTE: The Denali cluster can be sourced from WAMS, but the OEM USB port needs to be sourced elsewhere — I bought mine on eBay.

    Fast service, just got the android auto update for my 2014 sierra, answered a ton of questions I had, sent them the modules, and had them back a week after I sent them off. Everything works great and I would recommend them to anyone.

    cannot say enough about this company. made the mistake of dealing with an outfit in canada that i found on the forum. those shysters sold me used hardare and even after multiple issues kept trying to fix the hardware rather than just replacing it. for $50 more I got BRAND NEW units in the OEM packaging here and a full warranty. beware others trying to advertise based on price alone its not worth it.

    The responsiveness and service WAMS provides is top notch. Emails answered in minutes, order received in less than a week and functionality upon installation was as advertised. After going without CarPlay in my 2015 Tahoe for a few years, this upgrade is heaven-sent. Did along with the Denali cluster upgrade and the two work together seamlessly. All features, including steering wheel controls, work as they should. Can’t recommend enough!

    I purchased this upgrade because I wanted the Radio Programming / Unlock Services. They have an installation video online that made the install go very quickly and easily and it was nice to get a first-hand look at the product in the video before purchasing.

    I had to email them with a technical question and the support team at WAMS quickly responded back to me with an answer to all my questions. Everything was straight plug and play took me 25 minutes to do the complete install.

    I highly recommend WAMS to anyone looking to upgrade their 2014 Chevy Silverado. – Phill in NJ.

    When I bought my used 2015 tahoe with the 8″ screen I was disappointed to find out that it did not have andriod auto and further more that it was not something that I could go through the dealership to upgrade. After a little searching I found that WAMS provided exactly the service I was looking for at a reasonable price. I was able to source the parts needed for the upgrade on my own to save some money. Turn around time from the time I shipped the package to be programmed to the time I got it back was less than a week. Customer service at WAMS was always fast at getting back to me with my questions prior to the sale. Even after the sale they continued to respond to my questions extremely fast. Could not be happier to have android auto on my Tahoe. Thank you for providing this service. Would definitely recomend WAMS to anyone looking to upgrade to android auto / carplay.

    I love this upgrade. I have had WAMS do a few things for me in the past and they have always been the best. I have even emailed them with questions, thinking it will be the next day before I get a reply, but they have responded within minutes. Will continue to use WAMS. ( saving up to get the Autosync)
