Smart interface design allows drivers to take advantage of mobile communications technology while the phone remains safely stowed
If you’re looking for a higher level of in-vehicle wireless connectivity and customized infotainment options, the unmatched safety and security of OnStar® (2), look no further than the 2012 Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
They will be the first to offer Chevrolet MyLink – an in-car infotainment package that seamlessly integrates online services like Pandora® Internet Radio and Stitcher SmartRadio® using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls via Bluetooth® (3) device connectivity for select phones.
“There is a new generation of car buyers who don’t want to settle for mass market radio,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “They want to create their own individual stations and have access to them wherever they are. MyLink takes media personalization to a new level.”
MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth (3) hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevrolet vehicles. MyLink also includes a seven-inch diagonal, high-resolution, full-color touch-screen display that makes media selection easy to navigate.
Among the new benefits to be provided by MyLink:
Enhanced hands-free voice control system powered by Nuance®, which allows simple voice commands to initiate phone calls and select radio stations or media from portable MP3 players and smartphones. A tap of a button on the steering wheel enables intuitive verbal control of smartphone applications like “Play (artist name)” or “Call (name of contact)” keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
Pandora Internet Radio allows you to create personalized radio stations based on your favorite artists or genres and Stitcher SmartRadio enables access to thousands of audio programming choices, allowing you to build a personalized listening experience.
Gracenote®: Identifies the music collection on your smartphone or MP3 player and presents information such as artist name, genres and album cover art on the MyLink screen and enables you to select similar music to the tunes you love.
Upgraded USB (4) connectivity: While Chevrolet has offered auxiliary device connectivity since 2006, MyLink adds flash memory capability to its USB device connections.
