Hello All,

 

The modules appear to be the same but the label state otherwise. One is made for XM Satellite radio and the other Broadcast Receiver. 

 

Would the 13596607 radio be compatible with 13596605 after VIN change and SPS2 programming ?

 

Attached are images of the two radios.

Yes they both are the same radio and are interchangeable. The radio that states satellite is for USA and the other one is for Isreal and the Middle East market. The antenna plug colour shouldn't be an issue.

Interesting. The original radio was for EU market (Germany).

 

Do you think changing the VIN and loading calibration files per VIN for the replacement radio would work ?

 

Thanks Troy, really appreciate your help on everything!

The EU market uses the Silverbox radio, which has a different label and plug.

Yes loading the calibration files from your vin will work.

Sounds good. I will give it a try.

 

Might be different for this particular car (Corvette C7).

I have same question regarding HMI 2.0

 

Original Part # 23228497

Replacement Part # 23443747

 

Will SPS2 be able to program the replacement module with original calibration files ? Pictures attached.

 

Thanks

In regards to the radio.

 

The EU version has different RPO code:

 

EU - U2Q - DIGITAL AUDIO SYSTEM INTEGRATED TYPE DAB/DAB+/DMB-R

USA - U2K - DIGITAL AUDIO SYSTEM S-BAND

 

Almost sounds like a hardware difference, maybe that is why the antenna color is different.

 

Either way, I will try the USA radio on EU system and see what happens.

Both radios look the same with the exception of label and antenna color on the connector. See pictures above.

 

Part numbers are in fact different but trying to source EU one is hard...

 

Number of connectors is same unless you are talking about actual pinout.

 

Thanks

Quick update.

 

I programmed the USA radio with EU calibration by VIN and the radio is now bricked. 

 

I can get ECU Data but the radio no longer programs with SPS2 or DPS.

 

During DPS programming i get a negative response when command 34 is sent (request download). 

 

It seems like the radio won't enter boot to start programming. 

 

I think the operational software (ID 1) which is separate from the calibration files (3-10) is not compatible with the hardware and wont pass boot verification. 

 

Ideas are welcomed. 

 

Thanks
