At its core, Chevrolet’s new MyLink system is a high tech mobile machine, offering specialist radios that allow users to access their choice of media like “phone books, personal playlists, photo galleries, and other stored data.” It is also a “mass storage device and MP3 player, iPod, iPad can be connected through USB, Bluetooth or aux-in jacks” and as well as offering a “pass-through and embedded voice recognition, this system will offer text-to-speech, which allows users to listen to text messages from their smartphone.”
Various tools are built around MyLink’s high resolution full-colour touch screen. One of the key features is the BringGo navigation app that will be available to entry-level Mylink radio users. The app will offer a full range of GPS capabilities that will help you avoid traffic jams with the ‘live traffic’ section and will give you the ability to store maps on your smartphone as well. Chevrolet reports that the app will be made available for purchase through iTunes and Google play for £39,99.
Beyond this, the system will also come with two free mobile apps, TuneIn and Stitcher, that will enable users to listen to live local, international and internet radio. “TuneIn links listeners to a network of 70,000 radio stations from around the world, whereas Stitcher allows users to create their own personalised, on-demand stations or will help them discover new shows based on their listening preferences.”
While the entry-level version is currently available on selected trims of Chevrolet Aveo and Trax, Chevrolet has also revealed that it will be making its way to the Corvette Stingray. Those interested in getting a first look at the MyLink system can do so at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.
