Add seamless Wireless Car Play, Wireless Android Auto, Factory Navigation and HD Radio to your IOS or IOT equipped 2019 and 2020 Silverado or Sierra with plug and play simplicity!
This WAMS exclusive upgrade includes a brand new radio module custom programmed to your vehicles specific content AND more importantly it’s pre-registered on the GM Back End for plug and play simplicity and 100% OEM operation including all OnStar functions, App Shop etc! If you have a 2019 more parts will be necessary to ensure 100% OEM operation; you can find that information detailed in the FAQ section.
Please make sure you read through the ENTIRE description / Q&A section so you understand what this upgrade entails and if your vehicle is capable of it.
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) Navigation Radio currently for this system to work. It will NOT work on IOR equipped vehicles. 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.
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, 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.

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 do not seem to have any issues with the new. 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.
