Evolution of In-Vehicle Entertainment | Chevrolet MyLink

Chevrolet Spark Infotainment Dash System

 

Did you know that the Chevrolet Trax, Sonic and Spark, do not have a CD player? What does Chevrolet expect us to listen to, AM radio?

 

No, actually. In gearing both cars for the future with complete connectivity, Chevrolet expects most drivers will choose from satellite radio, MP3 players, or streaming apps like TuneIn and Stitcher, allowing listeners to pick up any number of more than 70,000 radio stations broadcasted around the world.

 

“We listened to customers around the world when we developed this MyLink, and we believe TuneIn will be a big hit with those who crave customized connectivity and entertainment,” said Cristi Landy, director, Chevrolet small cars and electric vehicles, in a statement. “Our Spark and Sonic buyers will have a fantastic solution for tuning in to their favorite radio stations from around the world.”

 

Chevrolet Spark, Trax and Sonic offers TuneIn Radio an app that works through MyLink Radio, which is a version of Chevrolet’s MyLink designed especially for the Chevrolet Trax, Sonic and Spark. TuneIn is available at no cost and can be used with iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and some other smartphones, allowing the user to listen to whatever he or she chooses from around the world. In addition, the Chevrolet Sonic and Spark have a paid app called BringGo that works as a full-function navigation system through the cars’ integrated screens. Chevrolet has made many of the functions in the Sonic and Spark’s infotainment systems into downloadable apps to bring down costs to consumers.

 

The newest app Chevrolet is bringing to their line up  for MyLink is Siri Eyes Free, which uses your phones voice recognition technology and runs the phone through the cars’ Bluetooth systems, but does not display websites or anything that may distract the driver. This is compatible with all smart phones with a voice commands.

 

TuneIn, BringGo, and Siri Eyes Free all work exclusively through Sonic, Trax and Spark vehicles equipped with their versions of MyLink: the Spark LT, Sonic LTZ, Sonic RS as standard equipment. It’s also available in the Sonic LS and LT and will come as standard equipment in the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV.  This system clearly allows you to find new roads we would like to invite you to come in pair your phone to the new MyLink and see what it can do for you.
