Q: How do I know if this upgrade will work for me?
A: You will need to have the IOS (Mid Level) Radio without navigation (With an SD Card Slot) or the IOT (Up Level) Radio with Navigation. This kit will NOT work on IOR equipped vehicles. This kit also will NOT work on a 2019 If you have 360 Degree Surround Vision (RPO UV2). If you are confused as to which version your vehicle has you can check the QR code on your build label to see which radio you have this is generally on the Driver or Passenger Door Jamb / B Pillar area or the glovebox. Scanning the QR code will show all of the option (RPO) codes look for code IOS or IOT if you have either of these keep reading if you have IOR stop now as your vehicle is not compatible.
Q: How can I tell which Audio Type I have?
A: Use the same instructions as above and scan the QR built code and look for RPO UQA (Bose) or UQF for Base.
Q: Will this work on a 2014-2018 K2 Platform Vehicle?
A: No this is only for 2019 and 2020 T1 Pickup Trucks.
Q: What Market/Region does this upgrade support?
A: At this time these are designed for the North American Market ONLY.
Q: How do you know which options I have?
A: We will configure the unit using the factory build data associated with your vin for options 360 cameras (for 2020), Trailering app etc.
Q: It’s really plug and play?
A: Yes the unit arrives ready to go and pre registered with GM for infotainment feature continuity and plug and play simplicity. The ONLY thing you’ll have to do if you happen to have an active XM account will be to call them and tell them the new radio ID to transfer service over.
Q: Does this kit include the map database?
A: Yes it sure does!
Q: How hard is the install?
A: Pretty easy if you take your time and have basic Automotive knowledge. The unit resides below the glove box so you must remove the lower insulator under the glove box, remove a small inverter, possibly unplug a harness to move out of the way then unplug the old unit release it from its mount then install the new unit. We are over simplifying it here but its really not a bad install, just need a good small automotive pick, a 10mm socket and some patience. You can click HERE for the installation instructions to see what you’re in for!
Q: What changes are necessary to facilitate installation into a 2019?
A: For 2020+ GM introduced a separate WiFi Antenna that the 2019’s are lacking. This antenna is primarily used for updates however with heavy hotspot load the unit can also start using this additional antenna in conjunction with the internal one to keep everything running properly. The good news is that while the OEM version is very hard to mount we have found a suitable inexpensive aftermarket version that in testing works just fine for this application. You can source that unit on amazon by clicking HERE. The other change you need to be aware of is GM changed the camera architecture slightly as well in 2020+. This means if you have a UVB (single rear view camera) equipped truck you must also replace this camera as well; 270/360 Camera systems are NOT SUPPORTED ON THE 2019; Don’t buy this if you have a 2019 With Surround Vision. This camera can be found from many online parts retailers, your local dealer etc and is very simple to swap out. The part number for the UVB Camera is 84884484.
