Hello all. Can anyone advise what is involved in upgrading an io3 radio for a 2015 Tahoe to an io5?

I am able to program, all I need is to buy the IO6 hmi?From what I've seen it's close to $3K.

Probably less if you source the radio elsewhere and just get the harness from this place. The radio will also need programming. I'm debating if I should go IO5/6 or just go aftermarket with a Crutchfield radio. Should be a lot cheaper.
mmmm, maybeeee if you have the 8" screen alreadyI am able to program, all I need is to buy the IO6 hmi?
Thanks for your inputmmmm, maybeeee if you have the 8" screen already
i know you can go from 5 to 6 that way, unsure about previous versions
you can get a "kit" essentially but it's not cheap over 1k but pretty sure it's not 3 as previously stated
I know there is a whole bunch of compatibility stuff that needs to be verified before going down that rabbit hole
A couple of weeks ago I upgraded my 2017 PPV from IO3 to a Jensen 10.1" head unit. The kit from Crutchfield preserved my backup camera functionality even though it included a new camera, which I have not installed. The price was very reasonable and I'm happy with the large screen and the benefits of an up to date Android Auto integration. It was an easy installation. I took my time installing and reassembling over a couple of evenings.
I also purchased a replacement heated steering wheel and clock spring (who came up with that name?). Both are installed but the stereo controls (right side buttons) don't work. I have not yet had the time to troubleshoot as I'm swamped with work. I don't expect it to take much to resolve because in the end the steering control is just a resistor network. I figure that *worst case* I may end up needing a current source to generate a voltage at the key presses. TBD. In the interim, I really like that the stereo has a knob for volume control and touch station selection in such a large format that I do not yet regret the current lack of steering wheel control.
