Dudes and Dudettes,



I searched through the forums, so please excuse my newbie self if this question has already been addressed. I know from reading the forums that the standard radio is less than great. However, does anyone know who the manufacturer is and what the model number is? I have a 2018 Trax LT with the standard radio setup. Just trying to do some research to see what its specs and capabilities are.



Thanks!

That looks close to my 2018, but the physical buttons at the bottom are different. I am new to the board so excuse the attachment size!

I found this in Wikipedia:


"MyLink a.k.a. Intellilink is a telematics system/infotainment system offered by General Motors vehicles starting in the 2012 model year. It is offered in all GM brands aside from Cadillac, who uses their exclusive CUE infotainment system. The MyLink name is used for vehicles under the Chevrolet and Holden brands, while the Intellilink name is used for Buick, GMC, Vauxhall and Opel. MyLink systems are manufactured by three companies for GM, Panasonic for most MyLink models, LG Electronics for the unit equipped on the Chevrolet Sonic, Chevrolet Spark, Chevrolet Trax and Vauxhall/Opel Adam, and Bosch for Cadillac's CUE system.
The system is based on QNX real-time operating system and voice recognition software from Nuance.[1] It allows users to control online services through apps, like Pandora Internet Radio or Stitcher Radio through voice commands or the touch-screen interface. The car is able to access online content via a smartphone with a 3G data connection connected through Bluetooth.[2] Users are also able to control their phone wirelessly via the same interface. MyLink also integrates OnStar's services (Advanced Automatic Collision Notification, roadside assistance, vehicle diagnostics information, live advisors, and turn-by-turn navigation).[3]"

Yeah, that's the infotainment model so I can't help you since it's different.

Manufacturer Part Number: 42481577~179527807LKQ

I replaced my MyLink this week with and aftermarket radio. Still ironing some issues but I like it. My power connector is different than yours.

This is my new unit.

Me too, especially for the back-up camera

GM appears to be sourcing the head unit from LG for the 2017+ refreshed Trax. The same unit is used in Sonic, Spark, Cruze, and lower trims of Malibu and Equinox.

It’s pretty tightly integrated to the rest of the vehicle. In addition to mundane stuff like the steering wheel controls, the stereo incorporates the settings menus for the entire car, including OnStar. It also has the external temperature display, moving guidelines for the backup camera, and is the noisemaker for the turn-signals. You’re going to lose functionality if you replace the factory head unit.

I thought I would lose the external temperature display but it's still displayed in the corner.



If I would lose OnStar I think I'd actually be happy.:nerd:
