2014-2018 GMC/Chevy T-Style Radio Compatibility Questions
Below are some of the most common questions we receive about compatibility between our T-Style radio and your GM truck.
What year GMC Sierra’s or Chevy Silverados will your T-Style radios work in?
Our GEN IV (and GEN III) radios are both labeled for 2014-2018 GMC/Chevy trucks. However, 2019 2500 and 3500 trucks WILL work with our radio. If your dashboard matches the style/shape of the 2014-18 trucks, our Linkswell T-Style radios will work in your vehicle.
What features will I lose from my factory Radio?
We do not retain:
- SiriusXM Satellite Radio
- myChevrolet App OR myGMC App
- Fan speed turning itself down when on a phone call
- Rear Entertainment (OEM DVD Player and screen)
- Factory Microphone
Will your Android radio work with my iPhone?
Yes. Our radio does run Android Apps and Android, however bluetooth and PhoneLink both still work seamlessly with your iPhone.
Will my Heated seats, cooled seats, or heated steering wheel still work?
Yes, we support your heated/cooled seats, and heated steering wheel.
Will my audio still sound as good as my factory radio?
Absolutely. Our radio outputs 4 x 45 Watt power to all speakers, giving you strong, quality audio.
Will I need any extra adapters to get the system working in my truck?
If your GM truck has a BOSE audio system, you may need additional adapters. We do not retain factory navigation, and adding it on afterwards is optional.
My Denali truck doest have silver trim, it’s more of a metallic brown. Will this look good in my truck?
Of course. Some customers stick with the silver trim, however we do have a pewter colored trim piece set you can optionally purchase with your Linkswell radio, to match your Denali’s unique trim color.
Will the T-Style radio retain my Steering Wheel Controls?
We do retain Steering Wheel Controls, all except the Voice Command button on the Steering Wheel. (Where you press it and can talk to the radio to have it do things for you)
Will the T-Style radio retain my Sirius XM Satellite Radio?
We do NOT retain SXM Satellite Radio at this time. We are working with SXM to get our radios Sirius XM Ready. As of now, you will only be able to stream XM via internet, either though your mobile phone, or on the radio itself.
