Also, does anyone happen to know if - if I just connect the wiring and switch - the cruise control is already enabled in the computer? Do I need to get it flashed or anything?

Hello everyone... I did the same a few others here and bought my trax before realizing it didn't come with a cruise. I saw the Rostra ones, but I have items on that stick and I'd really like to have it look as original as possible. Anyone know of a kit for a 2017 that isn't Rostra? Is Flyboy still around?
You might want to check around in your area of the country for electronic specialty shops or ask the dealer you bought your Trax from, most dealers have one they use for adding on aftermarket accessories that people request.

A while back I bought a Silverado without cruise, I wanted it, the dealer had it installed at a local radio specialty shop in the area before I took delivery
On that truck they added a stalk just under the turn signal arm it wasn't factory looking but it did work well.

Later I wanted to add cruise to a Toyota Tacoma, I bought the kit at Amazon, then I bought the stock Toyota cruise handle, then the kit for the install, although low optioned Tacoma's like mine never had cruise it looked stock like the higher Toyota units.

No the dealer can not flash your car to turn on the cruise. The wires to the cruise switch are not even in the wire harness.
Three is an aftermarket cruse that will work with the factory cruise switch so that it will look OEM. The OEM switch is a 2 wire switch, It switches in various resistors to give different voltages that controller can use to determine which switch you have pressed. It is not the cheapest option out there but it will look like OEM and require no drilling or cutting of anything.

I have a 2016 Chevy Trax LS. Looking to add cruise with a factory look. Does flyboy still sell the kits for this? Can he contact me with price and availability?

Yes, they are $380.00 out the door, I can build you up one and have it ready by the 14th.
I will need to know the following.

is it FWD or AWD
is it a automatic trans
does your vin start with a K or 3,

For some reason this site will not let me PM people anymore.

Thanks,
Flyboy

I PM the admin on 12-29-2017 and this is what they sent me.
"To be able to send PMs your post count must be 15 or greater."
"You currently have 12 posts and you can send PMs to following users only:"

This must be some kind of new restriction, I have not been able to PM anyone since 10-13-2016

I guess what a lot of people don't know is this was a personal thing, not a business, I bought 3 of these cars. I picked out the blue one for me, as the salesman was going over every thing in the car, I asked about the cruise control.. he said ooh this model doesn’t come with one and by the way you can’t add anything to this car. My reply was ooh really, you hide and watch! So that’s haw it all started for me.. I put cruise control, remote Start and fog lights on mine.
