How-To: Update Chevrolet MyLink Radio to the latest version (US)

This thread is for anyone who is looking to update the software for the factory MyLink radio in their Cruze. The update files have been uploaded from my own ACDelco SPS subscription. Please read the post and the instructions carefully, as well as the TSB linked for important information before applying the update. 2013-2016 US Cruzes with this radio should be able to read this update and apply it. As for navigation units, I cannot confirm or test that this update works on one even though the TSB mentions it can be applied. Please check the thread; someone may have posted whether it worked for them or not.

If you are having issues with your MyLink system or want to be up to date you can download and install the update using a USB drive below, currently the latest version is from Sep. 2016. The TSB can be found here, 15-NA-081. It has useful info inside it in case something goes wrong, etc. If you don't have 84009432 Version E0.11.1F.40 in the Software Version Information screen, under Radio Settings, then you should be able to install this update.

Directions to update the system are included with the update, please read them carefully. Have fun updating if it works! If your radio is already up to date you will get a message on the radio asking if you want to apply the update again. Leave a comment if you need help or have a question.

IF YOU HAVE A NON-COLOR RADIO, OR YOUR MYLINK DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE ABOVE, THIS UPDATE WILL NOT WORK ON YOUR RADIO!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKED RADIOS, YOU ARE DOING THIS UPDATE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND KNOWLEDGE!

As of 10/27/22 I no longer own my Cruze and therefore while I'll try my best to answer questions I may not be able to help on certain topics. I also do not have access to a SPS subscription, so I cannot upload any future updates if there are any.

Can you upload for a 2013 with navigation, the file you link is non nav

@KENSTV123 have you tried applying the update? I looked in SPS and I think the updates are universal, at least it shows I can apply it to navigation and non nav units. Try it out and let me know the results, otherwise send me a pic of your radio

Ok, reason I asked for it was the last time I had paid access on SPS there was listings for the firmware with or without Nav, this file is probable a feature update and not the firmware which I think you need a scan tool to apply
I didn’t need a scan tool to do the update just a usb drive. There is a programming section for the radio but that might be where the scan tool is needed. And for the usb updates it shows me a list of different radio codes it can be applied to. SPS uses techline connect software now, which may be why things have changed

I know this post is a bit old but I just ran across it. So I did this tonight on our 2014 CTD and had no problems. It looks like the software in the file is from the 15-NA-081 update/campaign that GM put out in 2016. Wife had been complaining about her iPhone disconnecting from the head unit and not wanting to pair back up without removing it from the list and starting over. Apparently this software fixes that and some other issues. I don't have navigation.

List of fixes for this software from GMs TSB


If you don't have 84009432 Version E0.11.1F.40 in the Software Version Information screen, under Radio Settings, then you should be able to install this update. I just followed the directions included in the download. I also used a battery charger to keep the voltage up, I always recommend using one for any software updates in vehicles regardless of what is getting the update.
thank you so much for this info! I updated the post with the TSB PDF and some other things but finally after a few months someone actually tries it which I really appreciate. I doubt GM will release another update for these radios anyway so even if this post is old nothing will probably change lol. But I hope it fixes your pairing issue

*also, hopefully you don't mind but I did copy and paste what you said about the sw version info screen into my post to help others out

Anyone test this on the Nav systems, yet? I take it it doesnt include a map update?

Only issue im having with my radio is when I play from a USB stick, it switches to radio sometimes for a few seconds then back. No idea why it does that. Any idea if this update would fix that? [emoji868]
According to TSB it fixes issues with the nav system but I have no idea if it works on one. Probably best to put the update on a USB drive and see if your radio recognizes it. If the files aren’t valid or compatible the radio shouldn’t let you update. The USB issue your having might be fixed by this update but I see no mention of it in the TSB anyway.

As for an actual map update I'm sure it doesn't include one. That’s where you need an actual CD. If it did I’d imagine the update would be a lot bigger in size but it’s only 1.5GB.

Well, put the stick in the USB port and the car tells me "No music files found". LOL [emoji868]
On the radio you have to go into the settings/config menu > radio settings > software versions menu > update radio software and it should read your update files.

I believe this is in the instructions, but the radio won’t automatically see it at first until you go to those menus

Man while I wish I knew what that meant, all I can really say it's probably not compatible. I sold my Cruze last week so I can't pull up SPS and see if there is a separate update. I thought I remember seeing the updates as cross compatible but I don't think I was able to choose a radio unless I'm mistaken. For now I'll assume it doesn't work on nav units unless someone else tries. I'm really sorry about that
