Carplay / Android Auto HMI Upgrade Kit
$550.00 – $700.00
This plug-and-play package will include everything you need to upgrade your current factory stereo system to a newer Apple Carplay and Android Auto enabled factory system. Please see vehicle compatibility list tab to see if your vehicle can be upgraded. Most Global A GM vehicles can be upgraded.
We offer both non-navigation systems (I05) and navigation systems (I06). Please specify which one you’d like at time of purchase. If your vehicle currently does not have factory navigation but you’d like to upgrade, please also ensure you purchase the required antenna to facilitate the new hardware, as your current setup will not have a GPS antenna installed.
Package contents include 1 x HMI 2.5, 1 x Receiver Module, and 1 x USB Port
As an added value for purchasing the package deal, upgrades and unlocks are offered at a discounted rate (selectable via dropdown boxes on this page) and shipping across North America is FREE!
***Please note, as of 20/09/01 we only have stock of WHITE USB ports for kits. We have stock of black USBs in our USA warehouse available for an additional charge which will ship separately.
Will this upgrade retain my steering wheel controls?
Yes and no. Depending on your type of phone (Apple/Android) you may or may not retain some steering wheel functionality. For Apple iPhone users, your volume and track selection steering wheel paddles WILL work. For Android users, your track selection and volume paddles WILL NOT work. In both cases, the steering wheel button for “Long Press for Voice Assistant (Siri/Google Assistant)” will not work. However, saying “Hey Siri/Hey Google” or pressing the buttons on screen will still work for using your smartphone’s assistant. You will still retain paddle controls for all other applications other than Android Auto (ex. volume during FM playback can still be changed via paddles). For 100% functionality of the steering wheel buttons in both systems, you will need to install a 2016+ cluster. This also is required to retain verbal turn by turn directions using factory navigation when upgrading to or retaining an IO6 2.5 HMI kit We offer both programming and full kits, which can be found HERE.
Will I retain my SiriusXM Satellite Radio service?
The new kit comes with a new receiver, which means a new SiriusXM Radio ID. Once the new kit is installed, simply tune the radio to SiriusXM channel 0 and the new receiver ID will be displayed. A simple phone call to SiriusXM or an account change online will re-activate your existing service on the new receiver included with the kit.
Can I upgrade my non-navigation (IO5) system to a factory navigation (IO6) system?
Yes. You will need an antenna or splitter added to your purchase to enable GPS satellite reception to the new unit, but the system will work in your vehicle. Alternatively, if you have a factory navigation (IO6) system, and you do not wish to keep factory navigation in favor of using Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze through Carplay or Android Auto instead, you may purchase an IO5 kit.
NOTE FOR GMC CUSTOMERS ONLY – Please indicate in a note whether you would like to retain the 2014-2016 RED theme for the infotainment system or the newer 2017-2018 BLUE theme. All orders for GMC vehicles will be sent with the original RED theme unless otherwise indicated. If you opt for the BLUE theme, please note this will also change the coloring of the theme on your stock UDD cluster to a BLUE background.
