My 2011 Vert now has a new PDIM, dealer pulled one from another car on the lot and replaced mine. IPODs are working fine now. The original PDIM was a dud, charged the ipod and worked for a flash drive but could not actually link the ipod to the audio system.

So from what I've read I should be able to take my 2011 into my dealer and get the
new 20985421 PDIM unit for free with the newest DB/DB software on it?

Also, will this update make a USB flash drive remember the Random setting after the
car is turned off?

i feel I am going to have a hard time getting to get my dealer to replace my original PDIM unit that came with the 2010s, even with the new 2010 unit. They only want to do a SOFTWARE update, which mine already has. I think I will just purchase the DB/DB unit for my car and replace it myself.

Ok, this thread is everywhere and a bit hard for me to follow just jumping into it. My question is, I just bought the PDIM for my 2011 LS from GMPartsHouse. Will this be plug and play to where I can install it or will I have to go to the dealer to have them do something to it? I read a few posts and some of them mention plug and play but I'm not sure if they mean the add on is or if people replace existing PDIMs are. Thanks for the help!

EDIT *** Also there was a thread on here about the PDIM that on the firts page they had a copy of something from GM that outlined what had to be done etc. anyone have that still? I was going to print it out and bring with me incase I had to go to the dealer but I cant seem to find the thread now.

So from what I'm reading is that I can take my 2011 2LT with DA/DX (20927509) to a dealership and they will replace it with the DB/DB (20985421) under warranty? What should I say to the dealer to avoid any confusion?

If your car didn't come with a PDIM, you'll probably need to have a dealer flash your radio so that it will recognize the PDIM. If you already had a PDIM in your car, you can just install the new one (PN 20985421), and it should be plug and play. There is software in the radio head unit and the PDIM. The latest PDIM hardware will come with the latest PDIM software already installed. As long as the radio head unit is programmed to recognize a PDIM, you're good to go.

If your're having issues with your DA/DX, tell the dealer about your problem and tell him you need DB/DB (PN 20985421). Because you have a 2011, it should be covered under warranty.

The PDIM adds USB port and Bluetooth for streaming audio.

If you want Bluetooth for hands free phone then you need an Bluetooth enabled Onstar module.

No streaming is sufficient. Thank you. If I did want the OnStar module for Bluetooth calls I'd need To continue OnStar correct? Also is that easy upgrade or no?

The bluetooth works regardless of your Onstar subscription. In order to use the Onstar phone with minutes you would need to continue anOnstar subscription.

SummoneR is correct. You need the OnStar module to make bluetooth calls with your cell phone, but you don't need the OnStar subscription unless you want to use their hands-free minutes to make your calls.

It's a very easy upgrade. The OnStar module is located behind the passenger-side dash, just above the glove box. All you have to do is remove the glove box to gain access to it. Even if you don't currently have a module, the wiring harness is already there, and you just buy the part and plug it in.

I don't know which, if any, of the GM parts retailers have it, but you'll often find them for sale on eBay. There is one thing you should know about the modules. Both the 2010 and 2011 modules will work in your car, but only the 2011 module will allow you to access the phone book you have stored in your cell phone through the radio head. I don't know if that's important to you or not. You can still store numbers to be recalled through voice commands with either module.

Good luck.

And yes, it is called the OnStar module.

Are there sitll 2 different PDIMs? 1 for C & C and 1 for normal cars? If so would I need to spend the $$ for the C & C version?

Yes, one is for cars that have the system already installed; you just buy the module. The other is the kit which includes the module and cable to add the system. Verify this but I believe this is how it works.
