    I received mine, today, and installed it, a few minutes ago. It does take longer than suggested (94 seconds!), but I was being extra careful.

    There are only two wire bundles in my '09 Silverado; one for the light switch, and one for the DIC. I did need the key to pry the light switch out, but I managed to avoid hurting myself.

    One complaint, though: the packing material (ExpandOS) tends to create some dust, and actually marred the finish on my panel. It's not horrible, but, if the plastic panel was wrapped in something, it would fare better during shipping.

    All in all, a great upgrade, a great deal, and great service! And, it comes from the best (and my favorite) place in the whole wide world, the home of the Cowboys NFL football club, Dallas, Texas!

    Thanks!

    very nice. i just don't understand why it doesn't just come with it from factory if you just need to activate it........... still don't get it. it would be a HUGE selling point even on a WT. when i got my LT i thought it would come with it but didn't, but factory sells it as an option in Canada for like $700 in a package. but buying the truck and spending $79.99 is a great deal. thanks. real nice find!

    Does anyone know if this adds the outside temp to the vehicles inside display like on some Silverado's?

    On my '09 Z71 LT, it added "instant fuel economy", which shows the current mileage. This can be misleading, because, when coasting downhill at ~65 mph, it shows 99 mpg! It also added average fuel economy, which I suppose is an aggregate average of overall mpg. My '05 Dakota allowed me to reset this statistic, which lets you compare fuel economy from one tank to another, or under different conditions, over the course of a tank, or several tanks. Anyone know how to reset the average economy? The DIC also gives you "miles to empty", but I'm not sure how accurate it is. It starts complaining about "low fuel" when it's still showing ~50 miles to empty, but I haven't tested to see how far it will really go!

    The DIC also added current tire pressure readings, which is mostly what I wanted it to do. It added an interface to change some functions, such as the length of time the lights stay on after locking the doors (0, 1 minute, or 2 minutes, I believe), the conditions under which the doors will unlock after turning off the engine (when shifted to "Park", when key is turned off, or when key is removed from ignition, I think), whether or not the horn will beep when you lock the doors with the remote, and how the door locks respond to the remote keyless entry (whether one, or both, doors unlock).

    I'm pretty sure I already had temperature readings and the compass before adding the DIC, so I can't say whether these functions will be added by the switch.

    got mine today for my 07 1500 LT 5.3 L. lots more options with the DIC and i think it was well worth the money. its cool to see how it changes to V4 mode when you set the cruise. but then you keep pressing the button and you see that you get only an average of 16 mpg. i ordered it from www.gmpartsclub.com with no problem and shipping was fast.
