A major facet of Chevrolet MyLink is the ability to link up the driver’s smart phone to the vehicle through a Bluetooth connection, which can be controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen located on the dashboard. This new generation of MyLink allows drivers to access internet radio apps and play them through the Chevy’s stereo system.
Stitcher Smart Radio, one of the compatible apps, aggregates radio content from thousands of radio providers, including major news networks and smaller podcasts. Users can create their own radio programs by “stitching”
Apple iPhone users are also able to use Siri, the phone’s voice-activated personal assistant, through Chevy MyLink thanks to an Eyes Free mode. When activated, the screen of the iPhone will remain dark until not in use. Drivers can then access the features of Siri through the MyLink infotainment system.
Another new feature this year is the BringGo navigation app, which can be downloaded for free for either Android or Apple smart phones; there is a $49.99 fee to connect the application to MyLink. This is a more affordable option than the built-in navigation system, allowing drivers another choice.
