I'm sure it's HD.

I don't have custom themes- that's in the HMI. The radio is a separate unit.

Hmm didn't know that you would keep the HD radio.
Did the 2014 have the radio dvr like capabilities where you could pause, rewind and ffw live radio or XM? The 2015 did and the 2016 doesn't. Do you have that capability now? You should have also gained texting features you didn't have before.

Yes, the 2014 had radio DVR, which is missing in the new unit. I was warned about that before upgrading.

There is a new text message icon that wasn't there before.

Apple Car Play

Seems faster overall since the CPU in the HMI module is supposed to be faster.

2014 Impala owner new to the forum. I just want to thank you all for great information and ask for a little more. I would like to upgrade my car to have the newer features like integrated gps and carplay, but with more of a budget in mind. Most places you can buy the kits it is around $1000. From my understand you need a 2.5 HMI, a new radio module, gps antenna diplexer, and replacement usb port for the center console.

Does anyone have model numbers for the hmi and radio module? I have found some for the 2.0, but not the 2.5. I will have to send it to someone to be programmed to my vin, but if I can find it in a salvage yard or somewhere similar I can save some money.

Thanks

Garage
Reviving an old thread. Where is the radio module located in a 2015? I have gotten three different answers from three vendors: behind the 8" screen, in the trunk and under the glove box. Can anyone confirm location?
