Default GM I03 Radio Install Time

No Joke, over 2 hours to flash an I03 base radio, 15 Silverado. If you go home at 5:00 PM don't start this job at 4:45. Make sure you laptop is plugged in or a really good battery.

Yeah it looks like your laptop battery is low in the screen shot. Before paying for a sub and doing it , you might want to make sure everything is up to speed on your end with your internet provider with a speed test of your internet connection.

The 14 meg download only took a few seconds, I think termites are carrying the bits on their backs to the radio inside the pass thru 3 cable.

wow that is a long time. I had to program every module in a 2017 f-350 and thought a hour to do all was long. we might have to think about charging different with these longer programing times.

Lol, You would think if newer radio had a USB port you would be able to copy the programming files to a USB storage device and just plug that directly into the radio and not need a damn Jbox at all.

correct.. thats how a lot of Italian car radios do it. most modules are programmed through the obd port. but the radios are updated by files on a usb flash dongle. works pretty quick too.

It's really not accurate to call anything on a vehicle a radio any more. It usually takes 4 or 5 modules working together to make a radio. A receiver, a user interface (dials, buttons, or touch screen), a display screen, a digital processing module that determines which media is on the speakers or display screen, and a CD or DVD drive and maybe a an amplifier. The instrument cluster can get involved in all this also as well as GPS and a seperate digital receiver. Vehicles have become cell phones or media hubs on wheels. This was the actual receiver that I replaced.
