Is anyone else incensed that for 2013 vehicles using 2g technology, OnStar's "fix" is to use a module which eliminates the three button mirror functionality, and the ability to download maps directly to your navigation unit in the vehicle???  This is unacceptable.  I rely on those services daily for a vehicle that is not even 10 years old.

Upgrading an older GM vehicle to OnStar Gen. 10 is possible. I installed a VCIM module out of a 2017 Traverse into my 2009 Impala. 

The only side effect is that OnStar thinks I drive a Traverse now. I didn’t even need to program the VCIM, it just worked.

This solution is likely to work for your vehicle if you have a GM vehicle from the mid-2000s through the early 2010s.
