New PDIM Hardware and Software Available!

From the PDIM Software update thread...

20927511 N/A New software (coordinated with revised hardware) to improve USB interface (access increases from 2500 songs to 10000), applying to USB flash drives, Zunes, and other "Plays From Device" audio devices. Small improvements also made for minor bug fixes.
Since the original manual (I don't know if they updated it) stated that it could index up to 10,000 songs but in reality it could only do 2,500, I would think this should be enough to get them to replace your PDIM. I'll try asap and report back with my findings. Anyone else going to try to get them to replace it? I'd love to not to have to use this iPod and just use a flash drive instead.

I printed the TIS2WEB information, and will be taking it with me to the dealer tomorrow to have mine fixed. They already gave me a run around about my damn brake fluid res. cap that is leaking so I guess we'll see what they say when I hand them this. Of course i'll most likely hand it to them once they tell me theres nothing wrong, or that there is no fix for it.

Alright, just got hom from the dealership. After 2 1/2 hours of sitting there, they tell me, "we're ordering a new module, it will be here in 5 days."

Looked at the receipt and it shows P/N: 20893388. Its in that list on the tis2web site, i'm just hoping that its the right module with the latest update. I showed them the print out with the 20927510, and the guy was like yeah i dont know what that is.. guess well wait and see.

Please report back if this did the trick. Can you tell me if you are a 2010 or 2011 model?

Couldn't tell you. I just know they told me they perform a upgrade to the computer. If someone can tell me how to check this I would be glad to tell you what version it is

when you have the phone connected via USB, push and hold the menu button on the radio and after a few seconds you will see the HW: xx and SW: xx. The CC/CE is the old version.

I will check it tomorrow. Hopefully this tropical storm I am in the middle of will settle down and I can actually driving my car again, lol.

Unless something has changed, the Camaro doesn't put out enough power though the USB port to power it. It was tried last year before it was realized that the song limit was actually 2,500 songs.

What's a good ref to know what versions are out and what's the benefits? I have no issues with the car.

I've tried 2 USB sticks in my '10 2SS, a 16gb Duracell & a 4gb Cruzer, & neither work. When I insert it, it'll start playing the first song while it indexes the songs, but then it says that there are no supported files & switches to the CD. If I leave it in, after a while it will automatically switch to the USB input & restart indexing, but then the same thing happens. It will keep doing this until I unplug the stick.
I don't know if this will fix it, but my car's due for it's first service on the 22nd, so I'll print out the service bulletin & bring it in.
From reading this, this isn't just a software update, but a replacement of the PDIM module, correct?

PDIM update

Ok, so I just got done with the dealer installing a new PDIM. After it was all said and done, i got back in the car and immediately plugged in my iphone, and mp3 players. Low and behold, SAME hardware and software versions, and problems NOT fixed. They ordered the same part number that the car originally had. So even though its a 'new' part, the newest software was not installed in it.

I had to sit down with the service guys again and go through the TIS2WEB information with them, show them what was needed, showed them what the updates were supposed to fix and the service guy that actually installed the part was saying that CC/CE and the original part number is the latest thats out.

I beg to differ, especially if another member here reports having DA/DX and no more issues.

The service tech also mentioned that each time he tried to update software on the PDIM, that it would lock the hardware out. To this I asked, "So what software version is he trying to update the PDIM with?" Got no real response on that, and I asked if they were trying to update software on old hardware, again no response and if they had actually tried ordering the other part number, and also no response.

The information we are getting here, and seeing on the TIS website is different then what they see apparently. They have no other knowledge of any of the part numbers and software versions that we discuss here. What they are going to do, is contact GM for assistance and try to find out what software is what, what parts are what, if there is any new updates, etc etc.. and then they'll call me back.

The service was good, and the employees were respectful, no arguements or anything.. so I hope they come through with something. I mentioned the OC meet and how were all meeting up with Scott Settlemire and Cheryl Pilcher etc, and the eyes lit up like "Oh God this dude knows people." Lol.. I might mention the PDIM issue at the meet though and see if maybe they know anything or can offer any other advise on how to get it fixed.

I hope you get this figured out. I also have DA/DX and have ZERO issues. I can even pull the USB out and re-insert it and the PDIM remembers where it left off.

Can you take a picture of your radio showing the version numbers so people can show this to the dealer when they say there is no newer version.

Since none of the dealerships seem to even know what tisweb is, makes you wonder why does the site even exist and I still don't understand how is it we can access it, which should be a private gm site.
