How much does your dealership charge as a reference for future considerations? TIA.
I'd very much like to know that too. I'm at DB/DB with a 2011 built 12/10. Since the DB is the software version can it just be a simple Tech-2 update to bring it to DD? The only issue I've been noticing is that the bluetooth icon on the screen showing connection to my phone seems to indicate it is sporadically connecting/disconnecting.

If it's the same as it has been up to now, as long as the first letter of the hardware and software codes match, the PDIM will accept the update.

That would be DA/DX and the answer is no. The key is the first two letters (hardware); you have DA, latest is DB. DX is the last update for the DA module...

Dealer got my car today and I told the service writer about my problem with the PDIM.
Nice lady but she didn't even know what the function of the USB port was or how it works I had to explain it to her. I made mention of what I have found out on this thread and that a 2011 PDIM was the best fix. She says "well, I don't think we can do that but I'll have my tech2 guy look at it". What info should i shove down her throat so I don't have to do over again and get this fixed the first time.

You could try telling her that another dealer installed part number 22797218 under warranty in a 2010 Camaro based on PI0055B. Dunno if that will help but my dealer had no problem upgrading the module for me.

At the very worst, since they will most likely be replacing the PDIM module, but with a DA hardware version, ask them if you can pay for the DB module and have them cover the install/upgrade part (labor) under warranty.

I would still push for part 22797218. Its DB and my dealer did it under warranty.

If they will only agree to DA then, yeah, at that point offer to pay for DB.

Wow that is awesome thanks for the pdf!

I just got a call back from the dealer saying they tried the update but that didn't work so they are going to overnight a new PDIM module. She did say that it may not be a 2011 PDIM and that the 2011 PDIM would cause problems to my computer or radio or sensors in the car or something like that, thats what the tech told her. So I made mention of this thread and the information on it but still she acted like it wouldn't be a option but she said she put everything I said about the info I got off this forum in the notes. So we will see what happens tomorrow. Maybe I'll hit them with this PI0055B

What is the difference between the DA/DX and the latest? What improvements were made? Currently my DA/DX works very well, and my only disappointment is that I must wait for it to index every time I start the car. Other than that, it stays on random and remembers the last input I selected. If there is no major improvement over the DA/DX, I will just wait until there is a significant change and ask for the upgrade then.
