Smartphones and music devices — such as an iPod or Zune — can be integrated with the system, while songs can also be transferred to the system via Bluetooth or USB. The console allows for access to music from multiple devices, so the options are not limited.
Perhaps the biggest draw of the new MyLink system, though, is its ease of use. Apps can be dragged and dropped to the home screen, for instance, which can then be accessed either from the center console display or from a separate display near the speedometer. Further, while the center console has touchscreen functionality, drivers may also operate the system by way of steering wheel-mounted controls. The steering wheel even features a voice command button, which then allows drivers to operate the system by speaking.
Phil Abram, GM’s Chief Infotainment Officer, indicated that big things were on the way, saying, “There will be a category of apps that will be unique to our cars and very different from what people use today on their smartphones or tablets,” adding that “It’s not just taking phone apps and making them functional in a car.”
The staff of Chevrolet of Homewood is thrilled about the future of the MyLink infotainment system, and is confident that exciting things are in store. Interested drivers should keep an eye out for the 2014 Impala, which will be available equipped with this new technology.
