The 7″ or 8″ Chevy MyLink color touchscreen display allows you to access navigation, apps, entertainment and contacts though voice commands or by touching the screen. The screen layout — which holds a maximum or eight icons per page — is customizable for easy use.
To begin, connect your compatible smartphone into the Chevrolet MyLink system with the USB port or through Bluetooth (wireless connectivity). Connect an iPhone to a vehicle’s MyLink system with Apple CarPlay, and connect an Android to a vehicle’s MyLink with Android Auto to access your smartphone’s contacts, playlists and apps. The Android Auto and Apple CarPlay apps must be downloaded onto the phone before connecting it to a vehicle.
Android Auto allows you to access Google Maps, use voice commands, send/read/respond to texts, make/return calls, listen to voicemail, stream over 30 million songs and support apps (list of supported apps). Apple CarPlay allows you to use maps, predict where you want to go by looking at texts/emails/contacts/calendars, make/return phone calls, listen to voicemail, access your music/iTunes Radio and support apps (list of supported apps).
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay may be exited by pressing the HOME button, which would take you to the MyLink infotainment settings and menus. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allows you to stream music or access audible navigation directions while displaying them on the MyLink infotainment system.
While the smartphone is connected to the MyLink through a USB port while running Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, your phone is locked. This allows you to concentrate on driving rather than taking your eyes off the road to look at your mobile device.
Rather than continuously using the touchscreen, the infotainment menu may controlled by pressing the voice command/phone button on either the steering wheel or the display screen. Press the microphone button on the upper right screen while in Android Auto, or press and hold the HOME button on the lower left of the screen to make a voice command.
SiriusXM Satellite Radio offers 140 channels of commercial-free music, sports, talk and entertainment, and SiriusXM Travel Link provides up-to-date traffic, gas prices, weather reports and turn-by-turn directions. Since SiriusXM channels are satellite based, you do not need it to be connected to your phone.
Also, Chevrolet is the first vehicle manufacturer to offer Siri Eyes Free, which is compatible with an iPhone that runs iOS 6 or later. The system allows you to compose messages on the go with limited hands-free interaction so driving can be your priority.
