Title: HOW TO: UPGRADE YOUR GD-01/GD-02 TO A GD-03 HEAD UNIT STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE
Post by: VTH on August 04, 2017, 05:24:24
Hi all,

After noting the level of interest on the forum and via PM from people seeking information on how to upgrade their current head unit to the GD-03 (Android Auto/Apple Carplay compatible) I decided it would be a good opportunity to share my knowledge on how this is done via a step-by-step DIY guide.

Recently I managed to successfully swap out my factory GD-01 for a GD-03 head unit. There were several reasons I decided to upgrade my head unit to the GD-03:

•   Larger screen size
•   Visually nicer looking GUI
•   Sound quality improvement for radio, Bluetooth and USB media as well having many more options on EQ if you’re into that.
•   Android Auto/Apple Carplay compatible – This was obviously the biggest deciding factor to upgrade and one of the best features about the unit.

The installation wasn’t exactly plug and play however and it requires a few extra steps to get the unit working perfectly. 

Please note that this guide covers how to upgrade your GD-01 head unit to a GD-03, although, having looked at the GD-02 pinouts vaguely I believe there shouldn’t be a problem with following my steps to achieve the same result.



WHAT YOU WILL NEED

These are the items you will need to have ready before commencing your installation:


GD-03 Head unit

I sourced the head unit from a wrecker and I recommend getting one through this way as you will also then be able to grab yourself the AUX/USB jack assembly and USB lead which are vital components of the install. If you purchase the unit online ensure that it comes with the lead and the jack assembly. All up it cost me $215.



AUX/USB jack assembly + USB lead

It is imperative that you have these two items. The AUX/USB jack assembly + USB lead will provide the data link that Android Auto/Apple Carplay needs from your phone to the head unit. Without this you will have a functioning head unit but no AA/Carplay. You will not be able to use the existing AUX/USB jack assembly in your car as Hyundai decided to change the ports for the GD-03 which I’ll explain later.

You can purchase this online for under $10 or you can find them at a local automotive store.

This will be needed if you decide to do the de-pining of a wire from the central harness yourself in STEP 6 of the tutorial. Otherwise if you think you can’t then get a technician to do it for you



REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION STEPS


STEP 1A - Remove right-side air vent panel:

Starting at the bottom we will use the plastic trim remover to wedge it between panel and the gear box cover and then pulling the panel outwards then towards the rear of the car. Work your way up the panel until you have it removed completely. Don’t be afraid to use a bit of force. The panel is held together by clips inside.

STEP 1B - Remove left-side air vent panel:

Repeat steps in 1A to remove the left side panel.

(https://preview.ibb.co/iycyCF/DSC_1080_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/fc0wzv)



STEP 2 – Remove Ac control panel:

Remove the screws holding the AC control panel in place, there are four in total as shown. To remove the AC control panel you simply hold the top half of the unit and pull it towards the rear of the car, you will need to use a bit of force as it doesn't come off easily. After that unplug the connectors at the back and set the panel aside. This must be done to access the AUX/USB jack assembly.

(https://preview.ibb.co/k9pBXF/DSC_1094_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/g2uOev)



STEP 3 – Remove existing AUX/USB jack assembly:

This initial step is optional, but I found by doing this it helped provide more room for me to access the AUX/USB jack assembly.
To the left you will see a white-coloured clip holding the compartment together. Using two fingers pinch this clip from the back and push it towards the rear of the car until it pops out onto the other side. You can pull the bottom plastic part where my left hand is positioned to assist with this procedure.


(https://preview.ibb.co/dUvksF/DSC_1100_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/hT7bzv)

Repeat the same steps on the right hand side.

(https://preview.ibb.co/n6tK2F/DSC_1099_2.jpg) (https://ibb.co/g3E3Uv)

It should now look like this:

(https://preview.ibb.co/j0YQba/DSC_1105.jpg) (https://ibb.co/kY9ywa)

Now you have room to access the AUX/USB jack assembly. To dislodge the jack assembly you will need to press down hard on the groove on both sides of the piece as shown and then either push it towards the rear of the car or use something solid to knock it out.


(https://preview.ibb.co/iFHkba/DSC_1106_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/dzvGhF)


Unplug the connector from the jack assembly. You will note how the existing AUX/USB jack assembly has only one large port that essentially powers both the USB and AUX. The new AUX/USB jack assembly you will be installing is different in that it has been split into two ports; one for AUX and one for USB. The GD-03 head unit rear ports also differentiate itself from the GD-01 and GD-02 by separating the USB functionality from the A/B and creating its own port. This is why it is important you source the new jack assembly for this to work. Getting the AUX to work will require some extra work (possibly an adapter) but since I don’t plan on using the AUX I’ve decided to leave it alone and only focus on the USB for Android Auto/Apple Carplay and USB media.

(https://preview.ibb.co/iVHkba/DSC_1112_2.jpg) (https://ibb.co/hhFGhF)



STEP 4 – Install new AUX/USB jack assembly

Simply take your new AUX/USB jack assembly and fit it into the slot that is now vacant. Plug USB lead into the rear and then loop up ready to connect it to the head unit later. Re-position the two white-coloured clips back to its original place.

(https://preview.ibb.co/j71NNF/DSC_1116.jpg) (https://ibb.co/kXuywa)



STEP 5 – Remove existing head unit

Remove the screws holding the existing head unit to the console. There are four screws in total as shown. Slide it out and then unplug the radio cord and the A/B connectors as shown (remove everything that is plugged into the head unit).

(https://preview.ibb.co/ird59v/DSC_1129.jpg) (https://ibb.co/cB8iwa)



STEP 6 – De-pin A9 (reverse cam) wire from central harness terminal

This step is essential if you own a GD-01 head unit WITHOUT reverse cam, although, I believe all GD-01’s do not have reverse cam anyway so either way if you own a GD-01 you will have to de-pin the A9 wire from the central harness terminal to have the head unit working correctly. Someone can confirm this but users who own a GD-02 WITH reverse cam I believe this step is not required at all and it is simply a matter of plug and play. Users who own a GD-02 WITHOUT reverse cam this step may/may not be required. If you are one of these users it might be best to first plug all the connectors in and test the head unit to see if it’s working. If you are having the same issue as I did re: the head lights then do this step.

The issue I encountered when I originally installed the head unit was that when any of the car head lights (parking lights, head lights, high beams etc…) were in the OFF position the display would switch to the reverse cam (even though I don’t have reverse cam) screen and you would not be able to navigate out. Putting the car into P, D, or N also did not make any difference. However, when the head lights were in the ON position the reverse cam screen would no longer show and I could use the head unit freely with no problems. After comparing the pinouts for the GD-01 and GD-03 it was evident that the A9 wiring (reverse cam) for the GD-01 was not in use (N/C not connected) However it was somehow still feeding voltage into this.

Picture of the reverse cam (I don't have a reverse cam) being shown on the screen:
(https://preview.ibb.co/fbvJUv/DSC_1138.jpg) (https://ibb.co/g8Wspv)

The solution was to de-pin the reverse cam (A9) wire from the terminal.

Before you do this you need to first make the decision on whether you are confident enough to perform this yourself after reading the steps. If you are not confident your next option could be to get into contact with a local technician specializing in car/audio installations and ask them to do this for you at a minimal fee, it is a 5 min job for them if you remove the head unit yourself. Your other option is to cut this wire if you don’t think you’ll ever be installing a reverse cam.
Disclaimer: Please do step 6 at your own risk and I am not responsible for any damages that may result from this.


This is the wire (A9) you will need to de-pin from the terminal. Black and yellow striped wire that is part of the A connector:

(https://preview.ibb.co/gvQA9v/DSC_1148_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/knu3Uv)


To de-pin the wire, you need to pry the guard back (grey part) on the underbelly of the terminal. This would then allow you to pop the lever back for you to de-pin the wire. Use the smallest pick you can find and insert into A9 hole and force the pick upwards you should then be able to slide the A9-wire out from the back. Then tape the wire up. I’ve tucked it away under black tape as shown here:

(https://preview.ibb.co/k9H7pv/DSC_1150_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/fPnU2F)

(https://preview.ibb.co/n8QGhF/DSC_1139_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/nkGNNF)

(https://preview.ibb.co/fk4sNF/DSC_1167_1.jpg) (https://ibb.co/e6U3Uv)



STEP 7 – Plug all connections into the GD-03 head unit

Once you have de-pinned the wire it is time to re-plug the connectors into the GD-03 head unit. Plug the radio lead, A/B connectors and the USB lead into the rear of the head unit. You will also now be able to test the head unit. Switch on the head unit and test that it is powering on and functioning correctly.

(https://preview.ibb.co/ikhAba/DSC_1132.jpg) (https://ibb.co/nbB3wa)



STEP 8 – Put everything back into place!

First start with slotting your GD-03 head unit into place and screw back in the nuts that you took out (x4 nuts). Next do the same with the AC control panel and screw it back into place (x4 nuts). Then re-insert the air vent panels back in.

This is an awesome guide, can't wait to do it. Just a quick one - I read somewhere this might not work with GD premium models with Navigation already installed? Is this correct?

I guess it should be possible :undecided: though you would likely require a GD03 head unit with satnav (if there is one :undecided:) as the unit fascia's are a different fit between the non and included satnav version, someone with more knowledge in this area will hopefully add their thoughts.

Thanks for the quick response mate. I don't believe the GD03 came with Sat Nav as it would just use the maps on your phone (I remember reading this somewhere but it may not be correct).

Here's a pic of mine which looks like it might work (hopefully). (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171010/07491e3d8da0a8adb2c1d507ff703782.jpg)

All I can say is that when asking wreckers for a GD03 unit they always asked with or without Satnav

If you look at the lower section of your unit fascia it is a different shape to the non Satnav models.

Ahh I see what you mean. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll do some research to see if there's a fascia that could make it work.

They’re out of late 2015 to 2016 models and have no CD player, they also have a sticker on the back of them which says GD03 :)

Can you just buy one of these headunits from eBay and it will work or is there some sort of radio code or pin that needs to be input? I notice that some sellers are mentioning there are no radio codes and the unit may need a Hyundai dealer to unlock.

No code was required when I upgraded the GD01 to a GD03 unit, easy change over :)

Thank you so much for posting this. Your step by step photos and instructions are brilliant! I'd love to do this, and upgrade my head unit to have Apple Car Play/Android but all those instructions leave me terrified. Might have to be nice to the husband and sweet talk him into it...  :D

I'd like to try it myself, and learn something new, but to be honest, it's a tad scary  :lol:

If I can't obtain a head unit from a wreckers, can they be purchased from Hyundai? Or anywhere else?

Again, thanks so much for this.

It's good that you would even consider trying it yourself. By all means ask your local dealer, but from our experience things like replacement Audios are way overpriced from most car companies. That is why we recommend buying a secondhand one on line or from a wreckers. Usually an aftermarket one from a reputable brand like say Kenwood, Pioneer or similar would be better and cheaper than a factory one from the dealer. But, they may prove me wrong.  :cool:

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the motto of all car dealers is "Gouge, gouge, gouge", so I'll try the wreckers first and see what I can find.

Works like a dream (with exception to the AUX port, as this is not connected).  Has anyone worked out how to get the AUX connected?  Is there a harness you can connect to the old connecter that connects to the new one?

Mine's not that model so I don't know of adaptor harnesses but if I had to do that, I'd build my own adaptor by investigating pin-to-pin continuity. A multimeter, a length of old computer ribbon cable and a soldering iron would do it.

Great work on this diy!

Does all the steering wheel controls still work fine?
Does apple car play connect via USB?
Really not fussed with the aux, but was there anything that needs to be done/modded similar to the pin removal?

It all works as VTH has explained, steering controls work and Apple Play/Android Auto functions via the USB connection.

GUIDE UPDATE - USB CABLE

I did the upgrade from a GD-01 earlier this year and was able to get complete functionality without the USB port assembly and cable. Here are my results in case anyone is in a similar position.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

If you have a GD-03 compatible USB assembly but no cable buy a 5 pin USB cable for 2mm pitch header like this one
(https://image.ibb.co/nQe3yS/usb_2mm_2mm_1x5.jpg) (http://pcpartsandcables.com//product_info.php?cPath=28&products_id=123)
(note standard USB headers are 2.54mm and will not fit into the port at the back of the GD-03)

or

If you do not have the GD-03 USB assembly you can buy a pre-made cable like this one
(https://image.ibb.co/jsEgk7/usbafem2mm.jpg) (http://pcpartsandcables.com//product_info.php?products_id=54)

or

If you are feeling adventurous you can follow my directions and make your own cable.

Start with a spare USB A female socket and a 4 or 5 pin 2mm pitch jumper header cable. I had some spare 5cm grove connectors which were perfect.
(https://preview.ibb.co/jYXvCn/gv5cm1_01.jpg) (https://www.iot-store.com.au/products/seeed-grove-universal-4-pin-buckled-5cm-cable-5-pcs-pack)
 
The pin out is standard for the USB protocol so:
Pin 1 - VCC - Red
Pin 2 - Data- - White
Pin 3 - Data+ - Green
Pin 4 - GND - Black
Pin 5 is the shield - I only had a 4 pin header so I can confirm it will work if this isn't connected.

Cut the ends off both cables and join (I had to move the pins around in my grove connector so that the colours lined up better).


STEP 4 – Install new AUX/USB jack assembly

I don't have a GD-03 USB assembly but if you do you just need to plug the 5 pin cable in. Looking at the keying on the cable it appears at pin 1 is closest to the centre (nearest the AUX connector), pin 5 is toward the edge.

If you have an older USB assembly you will need to pull it apart. I originally tried to salvage it by hacking the existing cable and connectors but there were issues with the ground and which appears to be in common with the AUX cable so I simply removed the circuit board and hot glued the female socket in place. Easy and elegant.

(https://preview.ibb.co/fGcvCn/IMG_4616.jpg) (https://ibb.co/ei1Nsn)

Put everything back in the housing once you are done.


STEP 7 – Plug all connections into the GD-03 head unit

Once you've run your cable to the back of the GD-03 unit plug it in with pin 1 closest to the antenna socket.

Plug everything else in and you'll be good to go.

Once again to VTH, your a legend for your guide to change gd01 with gd03, thanks to Stanvac wreckers again, upgraded the gd 01 to gd 03 as the 01 stopped working a couple days ago making my 2.5 hour round trip to work and back very boring , half hour to install and heaps better sound quality...
I just wanted to say that the part number tag was still attached to the USB lead I got, could come in handy for anyone who is looking.

Mine does this occasionally as well, thought it might be the lead though changing it had no effect.

It sounds similar to the interference we used to get on radios when the distributor capacitor needed replacing but as we don't have dizzies anymore and it doesn't happen when using the radio I'm guessing it's possibly interference induced through the usb modules connection or module to head unit lead connection :undecided:

I am thinking if that occurs because of the aux which is not connected to the radio therefore there the aux/usb assembly is not grounded?
Also when I switch the radio on, a pop sound comes out of the speakers once before it starts playing

I don't think AUX would have anything to do with it as it's a completely separate line :undecided: there's no interference when using maps, only music which is very odd and only happens now and again.


I'll have to experiment further, maybe having the phone to close to the usb connection might cause some Wi-Fi interference :Dunno:

Firstly, a big thanks to VTH for the awesome guide. I picked up a GD-03 last week from Stanvac to replace my faulty GD-01 (all sounds ceased working about a month ago).

Installed it today. Mostly seems to have gone well. The inbuilt Radio / Bluetooth / USB work great (yay sounds again!).

Android Auto works... with one issue. All interactivity works, I can speak to the google assistant and ask it to navigate to places and it shows the map etc. However, ANY audio from the phone is horridly distorted, be it helpful Google lady telling me where to go, or music / youtube videos played on phone. The distortion is somewhat reminiscent of the old days when you had a noisy distributor interfering with radio.

I've tried different USB cables. Later I'll borrow the wife's phone and try Android Auto with hers. Just wondering if anyone had the same issue?

Edit: I'm not the only one with my specific phone model (Oppo R7s -  :link: Android Auto - Audio issues | Oppo R7 Plus (https://forum.xda-developers.com/r7-plus/help/android-auto-audio-issues-t3442980)). Hmmm

Edit2: Ok definitely a software issue (phew, means I didn't break anything installing it myself). If I use Black Player to playback a variety of MP3 files, any files with sample rate of 44.1 kHz suffer the same distortion issue, whereas 48 or 96 kHz do not. Not sure what I can do from here.

Make sure your head unit is running the latest firmware provided by Alan in reply 7  :link: HOW TO: Upgrade GD-03 head unit to current release with Android Auto support (https://www.i30ownersclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=44244.msg450497#msg450497)

Thanks Craig, Dazzler,

The head unit already came with the latest firmware (as per that link)... I think.. will check.

My wifes Galaxy S5 worked without distortion however, so it is likely an issue with my phone. Sigh

Craig, I'll have to dig through my spare parts bin to see if I have any ferrites handy. I don't think it would be an issue with EMI being a digital signal over the USB, but crazier things have happened. It kinda feels like a software issue (likely given that Oppo have their own UI layer on top of the standard Android stuff).

Wow thank you so much for this guide, the radio died on our 2013 i30 active not long out of its 3yr warranty.  Picked up the GD-03, cable and socket for $165 from the wrecker.  Fantastic.

I just trimmed the wire, instead of removing it from the plug, seems to have accomplished the same end.

I did indeed sign up just to thank you.  So once again, thank you very much for this.  Great write up and the pics helped enormously with the job.

First Off, great guide, thank you!!!!

I just purchased a GD-03 from a wrecker in Aus, but will be attempting to put it in my 14 GT (US i30). Talking with some of the guys in the elantra gt/i30 facebook page, I was able to source this image of the aux pinout, that I'll attempt to wire into the main harness. Also I think.... to be clear think... that the santa fe aux/usb plug PART # 961202W500 comes with an extension cable for the dash that would work for this connector (TOO bad we just need the cable). I should be able to chop-off the end for a quick splice. Thoughts?

If you do not have the GD-03 USB assembly you can buy a pre-made cable like this one

Thanks for your post Samgregory. I'm in the situation of having a GD-03 and the wrong usb/aux assembly (wrecker just pulled one from an early 2015 i30 and won't refund it)

Just to confirm, can you use a single-row (1 port) of a USB motherboard header to female USB cable? Such as one of these?

Edit: I now realise what you mean by pitch - the cables i mentioned are probably the traditional 2.54mm pitch and won't work. They need to be 2mm pitch, I understand. I'm now looking at  :link: Panel Mount USB Cable Assemblies (http://www.l-com.com/usb-panel-mount-usb-cable-type-a-female-panel-mount-to-female-5-position-2mm-pitch-housing) (since pcpartsandcables seems to be down) edit2: l-com want $50 USD for shipping for a $10 cable (shipping isn't calculated on their website - they email you after and ask for shipping)

I have bought some "seeed grove" cables from the iot website and will cut a usb extension cable instead. Probably 2-part epoxy it into place.

I popped the heatsink off the back of the GD-03 unit and it looks like it would be really easy to solder directly onto the mainboard where the USB socket is.

CONFIRMED. I GOT AUX TO WORK, at least in the american elantra gt - non sat/nav. This should theoretically work for the i30 as well.

I acquired the extension cable from a santa fe to the usb dock, that I assume runs to a lower point on the console. Part #961202W500. Removing the female end connector I was able to connect the cable and its 8 wires to the needed connections with the existing 16pin connector via t-tap connectors, and connected the male end to the 96120A5100 usb aux connection.  :link: Amazon.com: Ginsco 120 Pcs/60 Pairs Quick Splice Wire Terminals T-Tap Self-stripping with Nylon Fully Insulated Male Quick Disconnects Kit: Home Improvement (https://amzn.to/2tQazLP). This allows me to remove the HD-03 in the event that I want to add back the stock radio and without directly cutting the 16pin harness.

Just matched up the connections from the new to the old. It only works if you have the USB, as it provides power for the aux connection.

Hi,

I’m trying to complete this on a 2013 wagon with a GD-01, at the same time I’d like to install a rear view camera as it didn’t come with one, I’ve found one that goes directly into the provision for it on the trunk release.

My question is, being a standard video input would that work for this? Am I better of getting an aftermarket stereo instead?

The GD -03 unit has options for the rear view camera that functions with the factory emblem cam, I don't know what connection is required though :undecided:

The option I went for was to have The Car Kit Company come out and install a revision mirror rear view camera  :link: Reversing Cameras | The Car Kit Company (http://www.thecarkitcompany.com.au/products/reversing-camera.html) , I prefer this option as you're generally looking at the rear mirror anyway when reversing and you don't need to take your eyes off the mirror to look down at the head unit.

Originally I was trying to avoid the mirror route but I think there’s too many variables with an aftermarket head unit keeping all the existing functions as factory I.e the USB, the microphone etc but think I’ll just get the mirror thanks for that I am curious to know how much it cost you as I plan to DIY it relatively cheaply

I have a 2014 elite with navigation. Can anyone confirm that I will need to get a gd-03 unit from a vehicle with navigation or are they all the same?

Pictures all seem the same for the gd-03 models so I wasn't sure

Thanks
Matt

Same here but 2012. I thought I can have Apple Carplay OEM unit but the more I read, the more disappointed I get.

As mentioned in my reply to your message, the units are a different shape.

If the later version satnav units have Carplay then that might be an option for you, the units should fit (dont quote me on it) though I'd expect there might be plug differences which a car audio shop could rectify for you if unable to do it yourself.

The other option is to get a third party unit fitted and matched with a new fascia from aerpro.

Hello everyone, new member here.

I'm about to do this DIY but had a couple of questions first. Firstly thank you to VTH for the amazing and detailed DIY notes.

My question is about the auxiliary and cable assemblies. Anyone from Australia know where to buy the two parts online, or in Sydney? I'm having trouble with the international sellers previously posted.
The part numbers i'm after are (or perhaps there are alternatives?):
- Cable: 96595 D3000, or 96595 A5000
- Auxiliary: 96120 A5100

Thanks everyone! Love the community here.

Hey everyone, just signed up as I'm looking at getting a 2015 i30.

I'd love to do this upgrade, but would prefer the AUX to also work.

Since the A/B plugs going onto the GD0-03 head unit are the same as the GD-02, I was thinking could you install a GD-03 head unit, keep your original AUX/USB component and simply de-pin the USB pins from the A/B plugs that go into the GD-03 and redirecting them into the USB specific pins/plug next to the aerial plug?

An aweseome chap posted the GD-02 pinout in another post:  :link: GD-02 Pinout (https://www.i30ownersclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=35248.0)

Does anyone have the GD-03 Pinout?

Only issue I can think about is if some grounding is shared, but I can potentially think of a few ways around that.

EDIT: Found a picture of the GD-03 Pinout

Fantastic guide VTH - I'm enquiring about a new head unit for my 2012 i30.

With regards to pin outs, I'm presuming with exception to the USB and AUX, the head unit is just literally a plug in swap over?

The GD-01's did come with reversing camera in the Premium line up (and IIRC the next option down from that), and from what I can gather online, the GD-03's certainly had SAT Nav in that range (at least in the Premium option).

There were satnav units though they were not allocated GD-0”model numbers, supposedly the units were built/supplied by another manufacturer hence their slightly different shape on the lower fascia.

Hi Plasticphyte - I also have a 2012 i30. It is literally plug and play with the GD-03, but you do need to de-pin the reverse cam as per VTHs instruction. I just did it a couple of days ago because my GD-01 headunit stopped producing sound suddenly. Took me around 40 minutes because I took my time (I'm not a mechanic/electrician by any means). I reckon it would take me closer to 20 minutes next time now that I know how rough I can be with the trim. It is so good having sound again! Thanks again VTH!

As an update from my post above - I ended up ordering the Auxiliary jack and wire harness from  :link: Parts Hyundai | Factory OEM Parts Discounted | Online Dealer (https://www.partshyundai.com). They've been shipped but haven't arrived yet. Will post how it goes!

@Skoobij If Plasticphyte has the premium unit as his signature suggests then it's not plug and play as a GD-0" unit as I previously mentioned wont fit a satnav vehicle.

Thanks CraigB! Didn't notice the signature! I think I misunderstood the post. In that case my post above is just another success story of a GD-01 to GD-03 conversion. :goodjob:

Hi aanastasiou4 - My line of work is in no way mechanical/electrical so I may have stated the parts incorrectly. I am referring to these two parts which make up the USB/AUX input and the USB connector that go from the USB/AUX to GD-03 headunit:
- Auxiliary Jack: 96120-A5100
- Wire Harness: 96595-D3000

Thanks VTH for the great guide.  I replaced the GD-01 head unit in my 2014 on the weekend and it is working great.

In case anyone else is interested I had trouble getting a USB cable as the wrecker supplied the head unit and AUX port but cut all the cables!

Hyundai spare parts told me the USB cable was part of the main harness and couldn't be purchased seperatly and the main harness was AU$1500!

I managed to order the USB cable (96595-A5000) from Four Green (https://www.fourgreen.com) for much less (US$12.62 + postage), however a few days later they told me they didn't have the part and gave me a refund.

There is an alternative KIA part (96198-3W000) which both Four Green (https://www.fourgreen.com) and Korean Auto Parts (http://www.koraps.com) have in stock.

While researching the cable however, I discovered I could order the connectors and make the cable myself.

The connectors are GT17 Series (https://www.mouser.com/pdfdocs/HiroseGT17Brochure.PDF) from Hirose and are made up several components which include:

Housing -  GT17HS-4S-HU (You'll need two of these)
Insulator - GT17H-4S-2C (You'll need two of these)
Outer terminal - GT17HS-4S-5CF (You'll need two of these)
Centre terminal - GT8-2428SCF(70) (You'll need eight of these)

It might be a good idea to buy a few extra in case you mess up the crimping.

I ordered all these parts from Digi Key Electronics (https://www.digikey.com.au)

For the cable I used a shielded USB cable, the specific cable used in the Hyundai part is "DUSUNG E203693 AWM 2725 VW-1 80C 30V Low Voltage Computer Cable", however if you can't find this cable any shielded USB printer cable should work just fine.  Look for AWM 2725 on the cable and you should be fine. 

I happen to find some of the same cable used in the genuine Hyundai part and used a 45cm lenght which was enough to reach with some slack for ease of install.

Using some wire strippers, crimping tools and tweezers it took me 20 minutes of steady hands (the center terminal pins are tiny) to make up the cable.

(https://preview.ibb.co/gDuEQU/IMG_20180909_123527.jpg) (https://ibb.co/i1wiKp)

(https://preview.ibb.co/ctZ3Kp/IMG_20180909_125432.jpg) (https://ibb.co/kjFokU)

As I mentioned earlier the wrecker cut all the cables and sent me the cut off ends so I also have the plug with some wires that go into the AUX port. 

I'm working on making up an adapter that will allow me to plug the cable in my car to the new AUX port.  I'm currently sourcing the connectors from GD-01 AUX port (96120-A5000) so I don't have to cut up the one I have to get the plug, but I'll keep you all posted if that turns out.

Does anyone know if you can get an extension cable/part for the B plug that goes into the head unit? Or know the male and female part numbers so I could build one, similar to Todd?

I'd like to try re-routing the USB pins without messing with the original cables.

Its not easy identifying the connectors used unless they have some kind of marking on them.

The USB cable connectors had a manufacturer and model stamped on them so they weren't to difficult to find.

The other connectors, like the connector for the AUX port are a bit harder to identify.  I did find a marking on the plug on the back of the GD-01 AUX connector "KET" which turns out to be a manufacturer Korea Electrical Terminal (http://www.ket.com/kr/product/feature-search.ket?categoryCd=CA01). 

The problem I've found is if you can identity the the connector, the suppliers usually have a minimum order amount, sometimes in the thousands of units!  However you can sometimes get around this by asking for "samples" which they will send you for free  :)

@Skoobij If Plasticphyte has the premium unit as his signature suggests then it's not plug and play as a GD-0" unit as I previously mentioned wont fit a satnav vehicle.

I do still have my 2012 i30 Premium. I've been able to find a lot of what appear to be the "standard" head units fitted to the Sports models on eBay, but unfortunately not been able to find one from a Premium model. I'll probably have to physically scrounge through a wrecking lot to find something (I suspect the Premium models will be a bit harder to track down as they're not likely to have sold in as large a number as the "lower" end models).

Failing this I'll likely end up finding a third party head unit and install that instead. As much as I'd love to trade in for a new i30, I can't justify going through all that financial responsibility again! Paid my car off now and I rather like having that money back in the bank again! :)

It seems to be fairly common. Most likely done to make extracting the goodies a quick affair rather than fussing about with properly removing the units with all cabling intact.

Cant say I've heard of anyone else receiving their cables cut in half, it wouldn't make extracting the units easier either because the unit and air con panel have to be removed first to gain access to the USB/AUX module and the cable simply unplugs, cutting the cable is just a foolish mistake or done on purpose by some numbskull and should be replaced at the wreckers cost :disapp:

Hi Guys

I picked up a mint GD-03 unit and a new AUX/USB jack off eBay last week to replace a dead GD-01.

Afterwards, I mistakenly ordered the USB cable from Four Green who have not responded to my any of my emails even though I ordered and paid for the original (96595-A5000) cable. Absolutely useless company. DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM!

I'm considering ordering the replacement part (96198-3W000) from Korean Auto Parts... has anyone ordered from them? or going the DIY route from Digi Key Electronics like the previous poster did.

Great forum!

GD-03 stereos are an Australian unit supplied on certain 2015/2016 models, your unit appears to have the same fascia shape so it should fit, others in Europe have fitted our model so I'm guessing radio bands will be compatible.

You could try contacing Stanvac  :link: Contact Us (http://www.stanvac.com.au/contact-us) via email and see if they will post to the UK, you'll need to ask for the - GD-03 head unit - usb module and connecting usb cable.

The car has just come out of warranty so no problem there. Some of the navigation models do have car play/AA in the UK, but they are expensive even used units I have seen for £600.
The GD-03 sounded like the perfect solution but they are not easy to find. I will keep looking for alternatives see if anything pops up.

I meant issues with the GD-03. If you go to the trouble of switching it over then it has issues. Long way to send it back and get issues sorted.

I would be hesitant buying something electronic and used from the UK to put in my car in Tassie.

There should be an aftermarket (brand new) option available. Not sure how price would compare though. :cool:

I purchased the Gd-03 unit from Australia and I live in Cyprus which is an EU country. I have not been facing any issues with it except from carplay’s music playback which is a fault in iPhone’s software (will be fixed in the coming iOS updates)!

Yes, I had the exact same as yours and the new one is just plug and play except from the camera wire which you will have to disconnect it! I bought it from an Australian seller on ebay (ultimatejap is his ebay name). He has many of them as he told me and he ships worldwide so, give it a shot!

I have just had a quick look at there feedback and I see a couple of GD-03 units being sold recently.

Seems like they are cutting the end of the wires
I didn't see any reviews mentioning their cutting of cables :undecided:

Hi All

First post. I purchased the GD-03 head unit last week from ultimatejap in Smithfield via ebay and it came quickly and well wrapped. $215AU shipped but ebay had 5% off on top so a little less in real life.  The AUX unit came but with the USB cable cut  :-[ but they were clear about that, so no problem there. I have purchased the parts to make the cable Digi-Key Electronics as per a previous poster. I will build the cable and install over the next week and post. Digi were very efficient and the parts came from the USA in 4 days. the parts are cheap but shipping is UPS only for about $25. Still the overall is about $40. I ordered a 'pigs tail USB' cable which means one end is a plug and one bare wires ready to connect which saves a little time. I'll post images and updates

Hey all, just an update on my progress.
I have ordered a GD-03 unit from ultimatejap on ebay for $288 (£160) with express posting to the uk. It was difficult with the time difference because I would be in bed as they would be at work, and when I get up they would be finished work  :sleeping:
Still got there in the end  :goodjob2: :goodjob:
Now it didn't come with the cable for USB but I have ordered one from Lithuania. It is the 96198-3W000 model from KIA SPORTAGE III, £25 for that delivered.

After all the digging and searching now I just wait. I will update once they have  arrived and I have it fitted and thanks to the person who posted alternative part numbers for the cable it was a big help.

hi All

all worked as shown by VTH. thank you VTH and then Todd for the cable tip from Digi.

What went right and wrong

1) When I ordered the cable parts I though 'I like the blue plastic interiors more'. Wrong - stupid me! The blue and grey are keyed slightly differently so the blue will not fit into the i30 radio sockets. It is basically the same , just a little plastic tab stops it sliding in. Lucking I work in a place with a workshop and they machined off the offending bit. Would have been very fiddly by hand. Moral is buy the parts Todd said
.

2) The USB cable itself is easy enough to make if you have the right tools, strippers etc etc. Again I was lucky to get help from friends in the electronics workshop at my work. Can be done with basic tools at home but you need to be patient as Todd said.

3) Taking the dash to pieces was OK as per VTH's excellent guide. Patience and more strength than yo think at times to unclip. It is make to assemble quick, not disassemble! The AUX step was a bit tricky and in the end I just cut the reverse cable in a way I could re-splice it together if I ever needed. I didn't have the right tools and trying to remove the grey cover was just tearing it to pieces.


I did get some plastic trim tools and they helped a lot prying things without damaging.

4) Radio worked fine and no pin was asked for. It still had loaded music from the previous owner who wrecked the car in a prang. Car looked not too bad in images so I am sure they were OK but still, they have my sympathy!

A sincere thanks to the club, moderators, VTH and Todd.

HI

I am having that occasional crackle form the left front as well on usb. Did anyone solve it?

I suspect maybe the AUX connector ground lines need to be grounded. I know it is seperate but the usb line has 4 wires plus the external shield line and their is a little circuit board on the whole AUX assembly. maybe the gorund is shared somehow.

Ok so I have received the head unit, I can't believe how fast the delivery was, it was posted on the Friday afternoon in Sydney and delivered Monday to the UK.

(https://preview.ibb.co/kZoLgz/IMG_20181001_174058.jpg)[/url]

Now the usb cable I ordered from Lithuania is still waiting to be despatched and they were purchased at the same time, probably would of been quicker ordering the cable from koraps haha. Hopefully have it by the weekend though so I can get started on the swap.

Overall that is one of the harder steps, you only pull our the top part of the lighter/AUX unit and lean it forward. That gives you access to the the clips that hold in the AUX unit. I only replaced the AUX unit but having the whole assembly from the wrecker makes it easier to study how it all works. Be a little careful removing the AUX unit as the plastic tabs that hold it in are very thin. The unit from the wrecker had one of those snapped but as I used my existing lighter 12V socket assembly it didn't matter.


As I said, study the whole assembly you got first. Good Luck


PS: In defence of numbskulls, they would get paid nothing and the lighter 12V unit is not easy to remove without damage. Finally as the wires are normally part of the wiring loom you need to cut them. Unless you know the exact details of the GD i30 GD-03 unit you probably wouldn't realise the USB is a standalone cable. Be nice if we all got a USB cable but I reserve my criticism for dealers and Hyundai. When I rang a dealer they couldn't work out the part and really didn't show much interest. Hyundai themselves ( or other brands) could join the internet age and have official parts for sale online retail. I imagine dealers sell 99% of parts via servicing cars so you wouldn't remove much business.I am sure they order via some online system.

Hello, I haven't started yet as I am waiting on the cable for the USB module, but hopefully get started this weekend.
Where did you purchase your head unit from and does it come complete with the usb module and cable?

Also the link for the pinout you posted is for a GD-01 head unit which is different to the GD-03. This post has the pinout for the GD-03

I got the headunit from eBay from rockleaautoparts in Australia, I already sourced the cable and aux unit in advance.

Sorry, should have been more clear about why I posted the diagram. The current wiring is on the left, showing a9 is "detent", whatever that means...

Thanks for the GD-03 pinout link though :)

@LargePig
Oh I see what you mean, a quick Google suggests it maybe connected to the illumination. On reflecting what the original poster had trouble with when retro fitting the unit, it sounds possible as when they switched on the head lights the head unit went into a blank screen to a non existent reverse camera.
Maybe it was to dim the screen when the headlights were turned on.

Here is the head unit fitted, no usb yet but it fitted perfect.
The USB Aux module was actually very easy to remove from my car surprisingly, as it was very tough to remove from the part I received.

I couldn't wait no lol, :mrgreen: it was gathering dust and I had to fit it. It was good to test it which was flawless.
I know the only downside I suppose taking it apart again, although it was an easy job. I reckon I could have the cable plugged in within 10 minutes it was such a breeze.
I have thought ahead on the USB module and left it out for now until the cable is plugged into it.

I have a question about the USB port, can you use a USB hub to make two USB connections? so I can plug my phone into one and a USB stick drive in the other and have functions of them both?

I haven't tried tbh, might be possible with Android but doubt it would work with Apple...even the cables used need to have the correct chip with Apple otherwise they're non-discoverable.

Another successful install here!  :happydance:

Plastic vents off, aircon module, dead GD-01 unit and AUX/USB module out in less than 30 mins... plastic removal tools made it easy.
Then plugged in replacement GD-03 unit along with USB cable and AUX/USB module to test. Headunit powered on but didn't get past the rear camera screen -- snipped the rear camera wire and unit came alive. Afterwards I upgraded to the latest software but had to do it twice as SW + Platform updated the first time but Micom did not. This took around 10 mins each time. Everything installed in around an hour.

Awesome headunit... Google Maps, Waze and Spotify all work great! The sound output and response time is much better compared to the original GD-01 unit -- especially after tweaking the equaliser etc.

Thanks to everyone for the easy install guide, tips and the software update links!  :goodjob:

I have updated it! But I connect my phone with usb. It shows the song that is playing but there no sound from the speakers. Same goes for bluetooth, apple carplay and ipod. Also when there is nothing connected I can hear the beep when I press something, when I connect the phone, the radio doen’t make the beep when I press something. Any help please?

You'll likely need to run the update twice to get all components of the update installed, and when each update is completed you need use the initialise tab "don't just exit/finish"

This is all explained in the update procedure manual if you had downloaded and read it from the same first post where you were directed to.

Did you initialise the system after updating? default settings isn't the same as initialising.

What do you mean initialise? After update, hyundai logo comes on, then tap on agree. Go to settings> system> default settings then press yes. Unit restarts and then do the update again and lastly procedure for default settings. Isn’t that it?

After pressing default then press initialise, make sure your version numbers are all correct as pictured.

Did you install the update from a blank USB formatted in fat32 ? you cant use the same USB with music on it  to do the upload :undecided:

Was the USB music previously uploaded to the stereos memory/storage ?  might need to reinstall the music, does audio play from the USB on your computer ?

Other than that I don't have any other ideas what may be causing the problem :Dunno: I only plug the iPhone into my USB port and that works fine.

I don't think that the usb is the issue! No sound comes through when I plug my phone and I also plugged in 2 more phones which didn't solved the problem.... The unit recognize all the devices, music titles etc. The only issue is the sound! The radio stations play normally though!

One last thought...try downloading another copy of the file and start fresh.

If update is done correctly the phone and everything else should be wiped from the stereo requiring you to re-sync phone and retune radio stations.

I can only assume something has gone wrong in the update process, there are reports on the web and here of some having clock reset issues though I've not read any reports of the no sound issue you described, just seems strange how I have the same upgraded GD-03 unit and don't see any of the issues others are reporting :confused: though I dd cut the reverse wire and haven't connected the AUX port, only the USB port is connected for myself.

Hello, another quick update.
USB module is all hooked up now and it is working fine. I even tried a USB hub to connect my phone and a USB stick at the same time and it does work, which is fantastic as I can still play the music stored on the USB stick whilst using android auto  :goodjob2:
Also my unit is on 2.04.07 firmware, is it wise to keep it as it is?  And wait until a new update will be released

Hello All

Some further updates having had the upgrade in for 2 weeks with the latest firmware.

1) The firmware is not causing me issues but I also have a cut reverse cable so the unit will not pick up reverse

2) Gosh the whole combo  is buggy ( iPhone 7 or 6s, cable, ioS12/.01 and GD-03 Head and whatever car play app you run ).

EG

        a) Waze talks and AM band audio is turned down automatically, on waze being done, AM audio is like you are 100KM form the transmitter - full of static. You need to power off the radio and all fine then. FM doesn't seem to have the issue.
        b) Random disconnects - seems helped greatly if you shut down ( swipe away ) all the other background apps that may be running on the iPhone. Various cables make no change
        c) Once ( in only two weeks ) after about 30 seconds of starting and maps talking fine the audio became a loud screech on any input, like audio feedback - USB, Bluetooth etc and thence to silence. Disconnecting phone and power cycling radio no change. After the car was turned off though it went back to normal

        d) Siri works about 50% better understanding what you said if the iPhone is on speaker phone rather than via the voice button on the unit


I would have been happy to say cartronics is crap at software but a friend with a VW Polo has constant issues too ( not sure of manufacturer of head unit ) and as above, there are so many places for bugs from phone to car. I would be curious what everyone else finds, especially those with an original factory fit.

I still enjoyed the fun of having done the job but some of the gloss is gone. If I had paid more than $200 from a wrecker I wouldn't be amused. Maybe I understand why the likes of Toyota and Mazda have been slow to release apple car play. In OZ law you need to get what you paid for and if the bloody thing crashes every second trip it would be a grey area if carplay meets that test. Does capplay do what you paid for in the advertisements?

Hopefully over the next year of so the bugs get ironed out but carplay isn't exactly new!

Interestingly, I am having mixed experiences with Android Auto in my PD. At one stage it was working seamlessly,  but now rather than press the voice command on the wheel I'm getting better results just saying ok google.  :crazy1:

Still been a bit buggy lately even using that option.  :Pout:

I had the occasional disconnect of the phone from head unit if the phone was laying down somewhere (fixed buy pulling USB for 10 seconds and replacing) though when upright on its mount it's fine, my voice on the unit works well.

Never used AM so I cant comment on that, though I believe most AM stations are also available on FM now days :undecided:

Only real issue I get is the Car Play clicking noise when listening to music but that's an Apple issue we're all waiting for them to rectify.

Thanks so much for all the helpful information here.

I was having some issues with my third party Android head unit so thought I would give the GD-03 a go.

Managed to get one to the UK from Australia and fitted it this morning before work. I got the new HU, Aux unit, and USB cable all fitted with a snipped and taped A9 cable, firmware updated from 2.0 to 2.05.05 (I couldn't find the 2.04.x firmware anywhere) all in just over an hour and everything seems to be working well :D

Thanks again,

Great stuff!
It is buggy at times, where as it won't change audio volume at time's unless the voice command is pressed then cancelled. Also the skip song button sometimes stops working on the steering wheel. 
Other than that great. 
I do also have a usb hub so I have my usb stick and phone plugged in at the same time

On the drive home from work I have noticed that these issues only occur when I try to change the volume, but instead of it changing the audio volume it will change guidance volume. Once I press the voice command button then again to cancel it the controls return to normal and work fine. Something is happening to make the guidance volume change instead of the audio, not sure what or how this happens but it is random.
It seems to me that the unit thinks that it is either listening/waiting for a voice command or something to do with the maps. I am going to look through my android auto settings and Google assistant to see if there's anything I can change.

Guidance volume should only change while directions are being spoken, once speech has stopped then audio (music) volume should be available again, that's how it works on mine.

Based on what you just said, Craig, perhaps the background volume the unit is getting is so high that it's heard as speech. :Dunno:

Not sure, my phone volume is set to max for music and 60% for ringer and calls, the head unit defaults to 8 for guidance every time the vehicle is started which I'll turn up as needed via steering wheel controls while guidance is being spoken, in-between directions (guidance waiting)  I can adjust music/radio volume which defaults to 12 at startup that I've pre-set in the head-unit settings.

I had this on my first drive this morning.

As it happens Waze was on "No sound mode", when I enabled sound the volume control worked correctly: Adjusting Guidance volume when Waze was speaking, and Media when Waze wasn't.

Untested theory: Volume adjusts Guidance when Waze *would* be speaking, even if set to "No sound"....

The main issue I am having seems to be specific to Spotify. Sometimes Spotify is playing but there's no sound. All other apps are fine. I think this is due to Spotify having support for remote control of devices on the same account and getting its knickers in a twist...

I know it's not the point of the GD-03, but my word the radio functionality is the most basic I've seen in forever. Doesn't even read the RDS info like channel names.

I thought channel names were only read out with DAB units :undecided: I think DAB functionality is in the latest 2018 i30 units though even if I had it I would never see it as I always have Apple Car Play connected and running.

You can always upgrade to an aftermarket system if you want :)

Nah, RDS has been about since the late 90s, every car stereo I have ever had has shown channel names, until this one.

I'm coming to GD-03 from an Android aftermarket head unit. It was great but with annoying bugs.

I will almost always be using Android Auto so it's not a problem, just weird.

Weird, on reading it looks like RDS features didn't take off much in Australia.

Things like automatic frequency switching, traffic announcements, channel names, all useful!

It was even on the Bobby basic radio that my i30 came with.

Yeah not a big thing here that I know of though some cars may have it :undecided: mostly AM/FM with CD which the latter is being phased out now that Apple and Android are the in thing, all radios are gradually moving to DAB.

I've got DAB on the house stereo and it's better sound and signal than FM :)

CONFIRMED. I GOT AUX TO WORK, at least in the american elantra gt - non sat/nav. This should theoretically work for the i30 as well.

I acquired the extension cable from a santa fe to the usb dock, that I assume runs to a lower point on the console. Part #961202W500. Removing the female end connector I was able to connect the cable and its 8 wires to the needed connections with the existing 16pin connector via t-tap connectors, and connected the male end to the 96120A5100 usb aux connection.  :link: Amazon.com: Ginsco 120 Pcs/60 Pairs Quick Splice Wire Terminals T-Tap Self-stripping with Nylon Fully Insulated Male Quick Disconnects Kit: Home Improvement (https://amzn.to/2tQazLP). This allows me to remove the HD-03 in the event that I want to add back the stock radio and without directly cutting the 16pin harness.

Just matched up the connections from the new to the old. It only works if you have the USB, as it provides power for the aux connection.

Hey - thanks for your guide. I've had a hard time matching up the wires based off the two images you send of the pin-outs. What do you do with AUX Video, Illumination, and AUX Video Ground?

Annotated your picture of the GD-03 end. If you could remember what the matching was that would be seriously helpful! thanks.

Hey,

my 2013 i30 Elite has this head unit with Sat Nav;

(https://i.ibb.co/G27zb2r/image.png) (https://ibb.co/NjxcHjG)

and I'm not sure if there's a compatible GD-03 unit with matching fascia, can anyone advise if it's possible?

I've noticed this for sale in a wreckers, it's got the wrong shape at the bottom so no good for me but is there a GD-03 head unit that will match my fascia shape?

Frankyg, the NAV units have a slightly different shape surround so a GD-03 unit will not fit your car, you might be better off looking at a third party aftermarket system which I’m sure a local car audio shop could help you out with some advice.

Some members here have also replaced their system with Android units which generally require aftermarket wiring harnesses and sometimes a new centre fascia.

HI,

I am planning to buy this 2016 i30 set nav unit for this trip. can someone please confirm if it is possible on this version? I can't see any mention of the GD-03 part number.

 :link: 2016 Hyundai i30 5dr 1.6CRDI Sat Nav Satellite Navigation - 96560-A6010 BVN | BreakerYard.com (https://www.breakeryard.com/car-parts/2016-hyundai-i30-5dr-16crdi-sat-nav-satellite-navigation-96560-a6010-bvn)

I understand that I will have to source the Aux-USB assembly and cable separately.

I want to upgrade the head unit on my 2013 i30 ( UK) to enable apple car play. Also, can some one please confirm if apple has sorted the noise issue yet?

thanks in advance
tapan

If your vehicle already has a satnav unit fitted then a GD model (non satnav)stereo will not fit due to different fascia shape, satnav units are not even allocated with a GD “ “ label
The picture you linked is also a satnav unit, specifically a GD-03 doesn’t have satnav or a CD player.

Lastly, yes the CarPlay noise issue was fixed with the recent .10 software update from Cartronics.

I upgraded my unit to the GD-03 from the image below. If yours is the same, then the sat nav unit will not fit the fascia correctly.

This is what a GD-03 looks like, it will have to be sourced from Australia

Thanks for your feedback guys. I currently have the non sarnav version in my car so I think GD-03 should fit.  Stanvac is asking for 550 aud including shipping. Is the reasonable ? I emailed ultimatejap but didn’t receive any reply. Is there anywhere else I can source it from ?

Thanks once again.

If Stanvac are going to ship internationally for you then I'd stick with them, currently their GD-03 units are going for $400+, due to the high demand of these units now they are getting rarer so with shipping included to UK I think that is a reasonable asking price $550au = 312GBP.

I've dealt first hand with Stanvac as I bought one of their GD-03 units and they are the only company I know of that doesn't cut the cables and they will ship complete with usb module if you ask for it :goodjob2:
