Not sure if anyone here cares about this, but:

I assume this is just a software update for the head unit?

Might not be, may have a little something extra in the head unit to process the information.

If it is extra hardware, why did this announcement come after the 2014's have hit the streets?

I'm not sure it's just a theory. The head unit might need another processor to run the video feed to the my link? Idk I'm spitballing. I hope it's the same as the 13s. Would be great if we could integrate into this my link as well.

It's in the newer firmware. No hardware is added.

so if we decide to make this mod, this is how long its gonna take or is it just because you are testing everything. Will it be more of a plug and play after the final product?

It's taking so long because Ofer is trying to make this plug and play for everyone.

Also the radio needs to be programmed and last I heard he's trying to have them programmed so they'll be a drop in replacement and marry to your car at install.

Yep - and I'm working as fast as I can on figuring out the MyLink code. Trust me.

Awesome.. thanks again for doing all the very difficult R&D..

You for certain have one complete package sold..
Color HID,
Color HUD
AND
Complete head unit with Nav..

I should be getting my hands on the harness that is supposed to make the ZL1 gauge pack, (with the boost gauge) make the boost gauge actually work in the non OE supercharger 2SS models..

Ofer, I know your still working on it. But do you anticipate this working in a 2014 LS as a replacement for the base model head unit as well? From reading other threads there seems to be some wiring differences.

Let me know on this, i tried a ZL1 4 pack in my SS 3 of the 4 worked the boost gauge did not, so to me that said the BCM did not have the right info to send on the GM lan bus to make the gauge come on, its one of the things we are working on but no news at this time.

I was a lead heavy line mechanic for a lot of years some time back for GM and have a good friend that is still at GM, and is working on this for me..
Hope he can come through.. this is something I really am wanting in the car..
I will let you know as soon as I get either the part or the info.. hopefully in the next week or so

If you are able to add the ZL1 gauges with the boost gauge working, i am in 100%.

Ofer? Anybody? Thanks.

There might be something in the tune that needs to be turned on in order for that gauge to work? Im sure all that gauge is doing is reading off the MAP sensor, so it may get its signal from the PCM. Even on the SS, there is a section that says "Supercharger" and it just has everything 0'd out. Maybe if a value is inserted somewhere in there, the gauge my start to read the MAP? Maybe?

not according to any one that I have talked to. GM wont even discuss it and the guys doing the tunes that I have spoke to have no way to access that parameter.
Today I received the complete assembly from GM, so will have to see if it works.. fingers crossed..
