While innovations in design and those underneath the hood tend to receive quite a bit of attention, drivers are becoming more and more concerned about their vehicle's technology interface, and Chevrolet is listening. The next generation of Chevy MyLink was previewed for attendees of the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and Chevrolet has said that it should be able to link up to 10 devices to a vehicle via USB or Bluetooth connections.
One of the most appealing features of such interfaces is the handsfree control over technology that can often be cumbersome (and illegal in some places) to operate while driving. Some automakers attempt to remedy this with steering-wheel mounted controls, but MyLink offers natural language voice recognition that gives simple control over phone, navigation, and music systems.
Because voice control can still be a bit awkward, the center console of the 2014 Impala features a touch screen for easy controlling when the vehicle is not in motion.
Another advancement to MyLink is that drivers can now store up to 60 favorites, be they radio stations, contacts, addresses, and more.
To make sure that new generation of MyLink goes off without a hitch, General Motors has enlisted a team of 25 tech-friendly specialists who will train team members at every Chevrolet dealership in just what it is that MyLink can do.
This new technology innovation, along with the 2014 Impala, will be available soon, and for more information, contact the experts at Team Chevrolet. Located in Valparaiso, Team Chevy is one of the leading dealerships in the Indiana and Chicagoland area, providing brand new Chevrolet vehicles as well as a range of pre-owned models.
