    I am at work right now but I will plug in the bypass and obd genie again and see if anything changes. I may just go to the dealer and have them reinstall the fobs when it gets cold out. Been thinking about installing an alarm as young kids in my area seem to enjoy breaking into peoples vehicles...

    Yeah the red light flashes, don't have alphaobd yet maybe time to get one. Will try what MannyHen said too and unplug the battery. Not a huge deal breaker for me just would be nice to have remote start for the winters so I have plenty of time till then to figure it out.

    Just finished installing the harnesses and handles and now I do have passive entry. Thanks again Swifty and all the other guys on here for your help. I do have one issue though. My key fobs no longer work? Is that the tradeoff of this upgrade or do I need to do something to get them working...

    When I left the dealership they told me that my radio was throwing codes because it was not the original radio that came with the truck. I purchased and installed a 12 inch unit from infotainment that has worked without issue as far as I can tell. All the features worked with no problems what so...

    I will have to go to another dealership. I did pretty much what you said already and even showed them this thread and how others had successfully accomplished this addon. Talked to the service manager as well and showed him the same thing and they refused to believe that it was something that...

    So I'm at the dealership now trying to get the vehicle restore since Swifty was able to add the code to my truck previously. First the tech tells me that code GXDA was attempted to be added to my truck and that is failed. Then they tell me the vehicle restore won't work because the handles are...

    8.4 to 12.1 screen

    Yes, I was still on the free trial until last week, but all radio functions were working fine. The only thing is you don't get the guardian service like someone else mentioned earlier in this thread as they state you need additional software and hardware. Looking in their website...

    8.4 to 12.1 screen

    It is a pricey option but I did purchase this radio from infotainment and everything was plug and play and took only about 30-40 minutes to install. Have had for sometime now and haven't had any issues with the system at all. (P.S. my wife bought this for me as a gift lol).

    Finally 12.1 radio upgrade is here!!!

    As far as I can tell everything is OEM and similar to that of the 8.4 OS. Here is a picture of the NAV information not sure if this helps or not. With the holiday weekend I haven't had much time to play around with all the features and settings just yet.
