I have a 2013 Volt with MyLink....anyone have an idea if a late 2014 or 2015 radio will work in a 2013? They are *mostly* identical, with the only change being that the late 2014/2015 have Siri Eyes Free.

I know it's an 'iffy' to go from no my-link to my-link....but can't find any post for someone who's swapped two radios from mylink vehicles.

Is Siri Eyes Free even attached to the radio? If I google the radio on eBay....the radio implies it fits with any year from 2013-2015, but not sure how accurate that is.

I appreciate anyone's thoughts!

I don't know the answer, but are you upgrading because yours is broken or because you want to add the Siri feature?

The second option, in particular. Current radio works fine. However, with the announcement of Amazon's Echo Auto, paired with the phone mirroring I have with the HD-Link I recently installed, the echo may prove a lot better of a change!

From what I read, it can open map apps for directions on the phone - which will mirror to the car's screen.

My understanding is that they are plug-compatible, but you need to get programming done to change the VIN marriage.

Yes. I put a 15 nav in my 13 so I'd have the text interface. Send it to Chris white at white auto media before I stalling it and he will set you up. He's a member here.
The only anamoly I have seen is I lost the ability to select faster level 1 charging. Not an issue since I never charge on 120, might not be an issue on the non nav unit
