Does anybody know if the new 2011's come with the updated software or will I have to take it in to get it updated?

You will either have the DA-DX or the DB-DB. If you don't have the DB-DB you will need a new module.

I think it will largely depend on when the car was built. Mine was built at the beginning of 2011 production (7/20) and I had the CE/CC or whichever it was, but it was the old numbers.

I just got the PDIM kit from Tonkin Chevrolet installed and I have no issue with my IPOD. It plays fine and I can sequence through.

I just had my car serviced for the paint chipping around the rear spolier. and while they had it there I asked them to check the radio as the Ipod would not connect to it. They replaced the module and software and it is now a DB/DB service mgr said that was the latest version and it works great now it is much faster when indexing much better overall.

If you get the latest PDIM (PN 20985421), it will have the latest software in it. Your HW/SW code will be DB/DB.

I have the parts guy I purchased my PDIM kit (for my 1SS) swearing that the DA/DX PDIM in the kit (which only works with 2010) is also the "latest" as well based on his numerous conversations with the internal GM parts supply people he's had over the past couple of weeks. I have no reason to doubt him at all.

Is "HW ID" DA the new design or not?

I know that it's being claimed that "HW ID" DB is the latest, but what is "HW ID" DA?

That post (at least to me) does not fully explain whether P/N 20927509 DA/DX is the new design or not. That post is very good in showing what HW/SW ids are associated with each part number.

I might also state I've not had any problems with P/N 20927509 PDIM and my iPhone 3G (iOS 3.1.2).

What the part's guy I've been working with has stated, that all of the PDIM kit inventory was cleared and any newly shipped and installed PDIM kit will have the "new" design PDIM in it, but as we've seen it has P/N 20927509 DA/DX.

Does any "HW ID" starting with "D.." mean it's the new design (2nd generation) PDIM?

HW IDs:

C.. = Original design (1st generation PDIM)
DA = Only works with 2010 Camaros (2nd generation PDIM???)
DB = Meant for 2011 Camaros but seems to work on 2010 Camaros (2nd generation PDIM)

Whats the difference between the versions? Anything or is it just a case of people wanting the latest version just to have it? I have an LS and will be buying the PDIM and also wheel controls soon to put into my car.

I did explain this in the post. The 20927509 is not the latest version/design. I do not know the differences in the versions and designs.

Sorry, but haven't followed the entire thread.

Does DA/DX or DB/DB fix the static on iPod Classics? Seems to go away with disconnecting and reconnecting USB cable. GM put out a TSB on this, yet?

Make sure you have version DB DB and if you don't, get your butt back into the dealership and get them to fix it!

OK, I have been following the PDIM threads for a while. I am taking my car in for NY Inspection, so I am going to have them, hopefully, change out the PDIM or at least order the new one. There are times where my iPhone 4, my G/F's iPhone 3GS, an iPod will work and then there are times it just won't work at all. One afternoon, it totally locked up. I mean, no matter what device I plugged in, it would not see it. Weird. Took a few hours of not plugging anything into the USB port before it would see any device again. My question is, does anyone know what PDIM version they might replace mine with? Should I wait to see if the latest one that are replacing the 2011s with will go in my 2010?

Thanks
