Jan. 26, 2013 - PRLog -- Long supporters of Chevrolet's innovations in technology, Libertyville Chevrolet ( is proud to announce that the automaker has earned recognition from CNET at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, who have named the Chevy MyLink system “Best of CES.”

One of the most frequent complaints about in-vehicle infotainment systems tends to be how difficult it can be to navigate them. At least part of the CNET award is likely due to the manner in which Chevrolet redesigned MyLink; rather than develop something unintuitive, they attempted to mimic the behavior of one of the most common user interfaces in the world: the smartphone.

Wayne Cunningham, CNET Senior Editor, praised the interface for its simplicity, lamenting that “cabin tech interfaces receive a lot of criticism for being clunky, ugly, and slow,” while praising MyLink for breaking those trends.

If CNET's praise is any indication, adopting a smartphone-like interface was a wise decision. Although the redesigned MyLink will not be appearing in any new vehicles until the 2014 Impala is released this spring, it is only a matter of time before it finds a home in the entire line of Chevrolet vehicles.

A first for Chevrolet, the new system is built to store up to 60 different presets or “favorites,” from contact information to radio stations and more. As far as the hardware is concerned, drivers will have access through an 8-inch touchscreen, with the ability to flick through lists or pages in the same way they would a tablet or a smartphone.

Compatible smartphones can even be hooked up to the system via Bluetooth or a USB connection so that the vehicle can access media from passengers as well. OnStar will be another component accessible through the interface, with improved capabilities thanks to the upgrade.
