Get Personal with Chevrolet’s new MyLink Infotainment System
Chevrolet is off to a great start this year introducing the all-new Corvette Stingray, Chevy SS and now their next generation MyLink system. The new system won the 2013 Best of CES Award from CNET in the Car Tech category for its hi-tech features and personalization capabilities.
The new MyLink is designed with you in mind. It can now link up to 10 devices and store up to 60 favorites, such as radio stations, contacts, places, music and anything else you could think of. It also features a new safety device called ‘valet mode’, which includes a secret safe box hidden behind the retractable faceplate. Valet mode allows you to enter a temporary pin that will lock the MyLink system and lock the faceplate in place. This will keep your personal information in MyLink safe and your personal items in the box safe.
With the new system, Chevrolet wanted to make it as user friendly and personal as possible. To achieve this, they created display settings with personalities named Contemporary, Edge, Velocity and Main Street. Each one depicts a specific lifestyle targeted towards the Chevy consumer. Check out each of the new display setting personalities on GM’s website and see which one would fit you the best!
Even more customizable than display settings, is the natural language voice recognition feature. You can literally just talk to you car, tell it what to do and it will respond, even without talking back! With this you can make phone calls, enter destinations, browse through your media, play music and much more.
The new MyLink infotainment system will be showing up at our dealership this spring in the 2014 Impala, followed by the 2014 Silverado. Stop by our dealership, Carter Chevrolet in Okarche, OK, for a test drive when these Chevy’s arrive on our lot.
