Interesting question. Anyone with a 2011 and C/C should be able to answer that quickly. If someone doesn't, I'll be sure to post that result here after I install mine.

I'm going to say yes, and this is because I can plug my iPod in and it works. iPods use an MP4 format for storing songs.

I think my "1,2,3" post (#375) above is a good summary based on Gene's reply- or lack thereof saying any of it was wrong.
.
.
What you get is the latest round of fixing compatibility issues with various USB hardware (iPhones/iPods, Zune, etc).
.
.
The cost shipped to my door was just under $130.
.
.
The next question you're bound to ask is how hard is it to install. There is a detailed installation thread here somewhere- it didn't look that hard at all honestly.

Everything in your summary is correct.

Go to this post (there is probably some info that will be useful to you):

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...06#post2753806

From there, you'll find a link to the detailed installation thread.

Just wanted to confirm that DB/DB is the most recent hardware/software combo released as of this point in time? Just checked my car and that's what it came with.

As far as I know it is, I haven't seen anything posted that there is something newer.

I'm a recent new owner of a 2010 2SS and this PDIM thing really stinks. Every time I start the car back up the radio does not remember the folder the USB was playing. It will pick up the song where it left off but the next song it plays is completely random. There appears to be no rhyme or reason. LOL. Also I have to keep turning random back on. Pretty lame. Hopefully they will TSB this issue for us 2010 owners. I'm subscribed now

You'll starve to death waiting on that TSB. Unfortunately, if you want your PDIM to function properly, you need to buy the latest 2011 PDIM (PN 20985421) and install it yourself.

It's not right, but that's the reality of the situation.

Yup, I gathered that after reading the entire thread :-) I'm a good newb!!

I'm torn between saving that money on an aftermarket head unit though...not crazy about the Metra kit. Figured if GM ever fixes the problem then I'll get it taken care of free in the mean time

The sad thing is that the system actually works quite well when you have the updated PDIM.

So now I actually can ask... Ship mine yet?
Thanks for your business. Please send me an email or give me a call and I'll check on your order for you.

Ok so I'm completely baffled by this. I had the PDIM module my 2011 replaced under warranty in December 2010 and after replacement it showed DA/DX. After still having issues I decided to buy part number 20985421 because I was tired of the multiple trips to the dealer. I received the part yesterday and installed it and guess what the module in my car that was showing DA/DX had part number 20985421 on it as well. I still installed the one I had just received and amazingly enough it now shows DB/DB and the indexing is improved and shuffle on/off is now available. Can anyone explain why the same part number would have a different hardware version? The markings are identical expect for the last 2 digits of what I'm guessing is the serial number.

I can only guess that the earlier serial numbers were programmed with the old software. They probably upgraded the software without making any physical changes to the PDIM, hence the part number remained unchanged.

Just a guess.

At any rate, congratulations on solving your issues. It certainly makes using the USB port much more enjoyable, doesn't it?

Now I am confused. I have a 2011 made in Aug and the codes are as follows:
Holding the Menu/Select button causes
HW ID: CC
SW ID: CE
to be displayed.

My software was updated about a month back so it should be up to date. But neither start with a "D".

Are the codes different for the 2010 and 2011s?

That's because you have an earlier PDIM (even though your car is a 2011). Updating the software in the old PDIMs will not bump you up to the "D" codes.

You need a new PDIM.

No.

The good news for you is that you have a 2011. If you're having USB issues, all you have to do is take it to the dealer to have your PDIM upgraded under warranty.

It that is true, I wonder why they did not update the PDIM when I took it in last month? The software update did seem to fix the issues I had. Don't know if I need to ask for an updated PDIM.

I just called the dealership and they said there was not new software or hardware for the PDIM and had no idea what I was talking about. They were like you can talk to the parts dept, as I was it covered under warrenty and they said no.. Great, lucky I dont only get problems once in a while.. they also said they checked GM to see if there was any bulletin on it and they said they could not find anything....
