General Motors understands that consumers today want easy, efficient and all-inclusive technology. That’s one of the reasons behind the development of the MyLink system. This year, we are adding some exciting new additions to the infotainment system, including more features and improved usability to ensure customers are receiving the latest technology and the best driving experience.
Along with the new improvements, the Chevrolet Spark and Chevrolet Sonic will be the first vehicles in the industry to integrate Apple’s assistant, Siri, into the MyLink systems. Siri will enhance the system’s existing capabilities to improve the driving experience. If the drivers have an iOS6 device, they can pair the device to their car and perform the regular tasks while continuing to focus on the road.
Hands-free mode will allow users to tell their iPhone to:
- Make a call to contacts
- Play songs in iTunes’s library or switch from AM/FM/XM radio to iPod mode
- Listen to, compose and send a text or iMessage to a contact
- Access calendar and add, change, and/or open appointments
- Minimize distraction by keeping the screen of the iPhone from lighting up, even when Siri is talking
To further heighten the experience of the system, GM hired custom specialists and sent them to dealers across America to ensure owners fully understand the Chevrolet MyLink, Cadillac CUE or Buick and GMC IntelliLink infotainment systems.
