Default 2018 Chevy Silverado Z-71

After a long wait, and a lot of grief from my friends, I've finally started on my build. Here's the patient...a 2018 Chevy Silverado Z-71 quad-cab. If I had kids, I probably would have opted for the crew cab, but I prefer to have a longer bed. With the bed extender, I can carry a full-sized sheet of plywood laying flat in the bed.

Here's the HU that I'm installing:







I had a helluva time getting everything soldered, because my tip was burn up to the point that I couldn't even tin it.


I didn't have another one on-hand, so I had to order a replacement...and here it is

The DMH-C5500NEX has an 8" capacitive touch screen, and Metra just released a dash kit specifically for it. It's one of the best looking kits I've ever seen:





As you might have noticed, this unit has a separate screen that connects to the hidden radio box via a data cable. This means I didn't have to hack up the dash to get a double-din to fit.

I did have to take apart half the dash to run wires, though. Here's the pigtail that plugs into the steering wheel clockspring harness


Everything is controlled via a iDataLink Maestro RR


Here she is all buttoned up and playing


More to come...

Wow the Metra dash kit an Pio HU look great! Really interested to get your feedback on that solution with the Maestro kit. Any chance you can retain/use some of the factory USB ports?

Seeing as how I don't really know for sure, it's hard to answer that question. I have several options available right now.

I've got a couple of wrinkles I need to iron out...backup camera not working, screen keeps reverting to a previous screen, etc. I'm thinking it's something wonky in the Maestro, I'm going to investigate further tonight. One of the big disappointments with this radio (besides a lack of wireless CarPlay) is that it only has one USB port. I've got a mountable extension, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to do a custom center console, so it will go there.

Most head units let you install a USB hub on them, may worth testing it.

PS. Just searched here and apparently Pioneer doesn't allow USB hubs on their units. It's a shame.

Default Re: 2018 Chevy Silverado Z-71

I was having issues with the system...backup camera wasn't switching on in reverse, and the system would periodically flake out to where it would automatically revert to the phone screen. I could press another button, it would change for a split second, then go back to phone. It seemed to work fine when I started up the system, but hitting the turn signal the first time would cause it to spaz out.

I fixed the backup camera issue...I'm slightly colorblind, especially between blue and purple, so I had the blue/white wire from the Maestro hooked up to the purple/white of the radio harness, and vice-versa. It's working fine now.

I pulled the Maestro, re-flashed it, and it seemed to be doing okay until I tried adjusting time alignment while sitting at a drive-thru. It didn't change screens on me, but I lost most (but not all) steering wheel controls. I pulled into a parking spot, rebooted everything, and it worked fine all the way to work. As long as it doesn't flake on my while driving, I can deal with not making adjustments without restarting. I'm going to try a few more troubleshooting ideas before I start a thread on the Maestro's forum.

This is one of the reasons I didnt want to do the aftermarket headunit. The best way if you want to keep radio and xm perfect is to just use the jl fix 86.

Well, truth be told, CarPlay would sometimes mess up with the factory radio, also. If I left the phone in the truck while getting out to run a few errands, it would eventually freeze up the radio control.

I use the 7 inch version of this radio in my car. The signal it puts out is very strong and clean. Everything else about the radio is below average. Very slow interface and only one USB with no support for USB hub. I am very happy with the sound quality however. I love that Metra faceplate. It looks like it belongs in your truck. I used the NAV-TV in my Silverado. The signal is as clean as any aftermarket radio with no hic-ups. I was able to retain all 5 USB ports.
