GMC CARPLAY AND ANDROID AUTO ENABLED FACTORY SYSTEM

MVI is proud to offer the factory GMC Apple Carplay and Android Auto upgrade for your new 2014 – 2016 GMC Truck or SUV.

We utilize only Genuine GM parts to make this GMC CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade possible, so we offer the ultimate factory solution that most other companies can not offer. Many aftermarket systems often create more headaches than solutions, why not stick with the factory systems that were designed for your vehicle as we have your factory solution right here!

The factory GMC CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade will consist of a new HMI Module, Radio Module and USB Hub for the center armrest. The newly supplied HMI comes with the upgraded 2.5 processor which will also enhance the overall performance of the factory MyLink Infotainment System. This is definitely a noticeable difference to the way the system responds to touch, and this difference alone makes the upgrade worth the investment in your vehicle. There is some changes with how the steering wheel controls will act with this upgrade, so please make sure to read the note regarding the steering wheel controls below.

In order to perform the GMC CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade, you will need option code IO5 or IO6. For more information on how to determine which option code your vehicle is equipped with, please message MVI.

STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS NOTE

 

This GMC Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Upgrade will bring some changes to how your Steering Wheel Controls act, WHEN and Only When plugged in and using CarPlay or Android Auto. When plugged in and using CarPlay or Android you will NOT be able to Activate Siri or Google Assistant via the Voice button on the steering wheel. There will be an icon on the touchscreen to activate either phones voice features, or you can simply say “Hey Siri” or “OK Google” and not touch anything. This also deactivates the voice button to answer phone calls, however there is an Answer and Hang-Up icon on the touchscreen when the call comes in. The back of wheel buttons will still work to raise and lower audio volume and track forward and backward on your music library, for iPhone. Android phones act differently and from what we’ve seen, most older Android loose those buttons all together, and we have seen a couple instances with the very newest Android phones. Each Android model acts differently and we have no control over which phones do what. Your steering wheel controls will function just like they do know when your phone is not plugged in and using the CarPlay or Android Auto interface. So, for example; If you get into your vehicle and just have your phone in your pocket or purse, or laying on the console; all of your steering wheel buttons will function as they do now.

There is a fix for the steering buttons for the GMC Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Upgrade, that consists of replacing the instrument gauge cluster (speedo, fuel, tach etc). This is not a cheap upgrade though, so if interested in retaining full functionality of the steering wheel controls, please message us using the chat feature in the lower right hand corner, and we’ll be happy to explain further.

PLEASE NOTE

If you currently have Factory NAV you will need to select the I06 option above or you will lose the Factory NAV all together. When upgrading to the GMC CarPlay and Android Auto System you are changing out your existing NAV module and adding the newer module. 

Due to current backlog of consignment modules – we are not offering consignment resell of old modules at this time. Please Feel Free to Message Us for Details.

NEW MAPPING INTERFACE NOTE 

Gm did make some changes to the GMC CarPlay and Android Auto Mapping interface when they launched the new system in 2016. They are very minor changes, but worth noting:

  • The map icon is now just an arrow, you can no loner set it to be a car or truck image.
  • The very top portion of the screen is no just blackened out with a compass in the middle. It is no longer a sky background that emulates the weather.

These are hard changes made by GM and can not be changed by MVI. It is also worth noting that the Pause/Rewind Feature on Sirius XM was also removed.

I ordered the in-motion with SMS feature & the smartphone adapter for my 2015 Yukon. It is a awesome extra on my vehicle. Anthony was very helpful to me and his customers service is outstanding. I would recommend his products to anyone who is looking to add upgrades to their vehicles. Awesome product plus awesome customer service, you will never find better! Thanks Anthony for all of your help.

I am an owner of a 2015 GMC Sierra. Unfortunately the truck did not have Apple CarPlay. Did a lot of research which resulted me into buying the conversion from MVI. Installation of the modules were simple thank you to the directions given and video on YouTube. Apple CarPlay worked amazing but the voice / speech recognition through the vehicle and weather application did not work. I emailed Anthony and Nick from MVI and it was amazing how fast their response time was. Did some diagnosing as directed and resulted in a warranty replacement. MVI sent both modules but said to replace a certain one and try it. Well I did exactly what they said and it worked!!! I had an excellent experience and would recommend this company to everyone!!! If you are on the fence for whatever reason I hope this review pushes you over the edge to do business with this company. These guys stand by their product. Thank you for all the help and getting me to the place where I needed to be!
