I paid this guy 60.00, sent him my vin number and he sent the file to write to the apim, using forscan. The sync3 has more lines of code and will not work correctly without it. Otherwise, you need asbuilt file from Explorer that has same features as yours, but came with sync3.

Hi Joe,
I did not yet change the USB Port but have updated the Fakra Style GPS Antenna. The USB port and GPS are giving me warnings on startup but when i acknowledge they go away. The GPS as a result works perfectly, so just need to get rid of that message. The USB however, will work with android auto (after I changed my USB settings on my phone in the developer settings) however there isn't enough juice provided to actually charge my phone.
The updated usb, takes power from the harness that you unplug from the old hub. It only uses the 12v power and ground from the harness via a pigtail. Notice in picture, only red and black are taken from harness that has like 6 wires.

Yeah that's the one I ended up purchasing. I thought about it more and decided not to splice into any wires.
