    The radio arrived today. It fit perfectly and everything works flawlessly. It only took 3 or 4 cycles for it to read the BCM and display SXM. So it is indeed a UAS and the part number is verified as working. Under the sticker was the exact same number except it was originally an AA revision but they did something and replaced the sticker with an AB (I peeled it off because I was curious if underneath was an entirely different part number.

    That is actually a great suggestion. You can't tell unless it's a certain angle, but the screen is pretty "scratched" up. They're not rough, just like light scuffs really so I will definitely be ordering a protector ASAP to keep any ACTUAL damage

    No worries, they all do that. The factory protector is very soft.

    Out of curiosity I have wondered why I have seen a couple of UAQ's and UAS's that have the "Source Select" soft key before the SXM soft key but my UAQ running on 22.6 does not. I only have the media section. Does anyone know what may be different? I purchased my UAQ brand new in 2018. TIA

    I can not say for sure, but I do know that this one is also running 22.6 as it was on a sticker on the frame. I haven't verified the source select as I do not have the proper USB hub installed yet so the first thing it shows every time I turn it on is "Hub not compatible" lol

    Has anyone actually posted 3d print instructions for the 2018 two usb + aux hub? I see a couple of photos about it and I see the print info for the usb-c hub, but nothing for the 2018 2+1 hub.

    Its running a higher application number.either someone updated to a newer version or the radio/parts are from a different vehicle.unless it came from a 19 or 20 classic.my 20 tradesman is running a 34.2 from the factory.however the right speaker channel isn't working.i switched speakers from one side to the other so I know its not the speakers.i told the service dept that.they swear its a bad tweeter and ordered a new one.i didn't argue I quess they will find out it isn't the speakers when they install it.i'm hopeful its the radio I don't want them tacking the dash out to replace a harness.
