Well to reprogram the PDIM the radio has to see it first, which is what they can't do. I'm gonna go to them one last time just asking to update the software on the radio and hopefully that will help the radio to identify the PDIM then i can reprogram the PDIM.

They're following the instructions?

Those techs at that dealership seems to be pretty bad. Its not that hard to do. There are several people on this forum who has had this done with no problem. Have you tried other dealerships?

Updates: FINALLY got the PDIM working!!!! BT audio streaming working, ipod connected and working, the only thing it won't read for now is my flash drive saying files not supported (troubleshooting as we speak).
But they couldn't get the steering wheel controls to work, on another post talking about the controls someone mentioned that he went to a dealership about 30 miles away, guess i'm gonna try going there today to get it working.

UPDATE: Flash drive was working fine, there was one album that had a playlist and album artwork which when i deleted all other songs were recognized right away so i guess that was the problem.

installed my steering wheel controls and PDIM this weekend. I took it to Rosner Chevy in melbourne fl (for people familiar with the area) yesterday my steering wheel controls work fine my PDIM charges through the usb port but does not seem to connect through anything else. Took it back to them they told me that the part I purchased is defective and/or not compatible with my 2010 LS now i'm pretty sure from reading on here that it is definitely compatible with my car. They also told me that it is supposed to be plug and play and there is no way to reprogram my radio to get it to work. How valid is this. Does anyone know of a place I can go that can do it for sure in this area.

After leaving my car with the dealership for a full day, they were unable to get my PDIM to work. I'm positive it's just a programming issue.

CallmeMacc -- it's not valid - the steps listed in the PDIM instructions specifically say you have to reprogram the radio (step #17). Insist they follow the instructions and it shouldn't be a big deal.

This is from one of the previous pages - I copied and sent it to my dealership tech:

"All they have to do is connect your car to the tech tool and talk to the GM mothership where your car information is stored. They have to navigate to the info about your options and under your stereo/sound/entertainment section they check that you now have a PDIM installed. They then just need to update your radio with this information so, the radio knows you now have a PDIM and voila... you should be in business."

Well it appears the dealer wasn't able to program the radio with the right settings. He says I needed a serial number which tells gm which rpo to add to my car. So he was picking and choosing off of the factory radio tunes...

Once they do program the radio, how do I do the Bluetooth streaming audio feature? Is there a setting under aux that will say Bluetooth?

Yes brought it to the dealer and had it re programmed. Only thing I don't like is it has to index every time you start the car.

Apparently it's been correct for the past few weeks - I just couldn't figure out how to access the bluetooth menu to connect my phone. I had to click the "Menu" button while in the Aux Input area to then connect my phone to the bluetooth. Streaming bluetooth rocks now that it's working!
