Hi,

Does anyone know if the 2016 PIUs had Bluetooth capability without actually having the whole Sync system? Ran into a salvage 2016 PIU that has the same style radio as a civilian version with Bluetooth that I have been in. What I would hope to do is swap it out with the radio in my 2015 PIU that does already have the microphone in the headliner. Somehow I have a feeling it isn’t just that easy though...

Thanks

11-15 have different electrical systems to 16-19. Sync however might be the same, if its the 4.1" screen.

SYNC has nothing to do with the radio (ACM) itself. They are separate hardware.
