New Smartphone Capabilities in 2016 Chevy Models

New Smartphone Capabilities in 2016 Chevy Models

DURAND, Mich.– Our smartphones have become and extension of ourselves. We carry them with us throughout the day, keep them just inches away on a nightstand as we sleep, and now integrate them into the vehicles we drive. And that integration is going even further with new smartphone capabilities in 2016 Chevy models!

Incorporating Android Auto and Apple CarPlay puts Chevy at the forefront of smartphone integration in vehicles! For the 2016 model year, 14 models will be equipped with new smartphone capabilities– that’s more than any other automaker! 

Updated smartphone capabilities in Chevy’s 2016 models are facilitated through the automaker’s MyLink infotainment system, which allows you to access your smartphone’s features without picking up the device. The 7-inch version of MyLink is capable with Android and Apple, however the 8-inch version is temporarily limited to Apple. It’s likely the 8-inch version will add Android-capability later in 2016.

You already know that both operating systems are loaded with useful features and now they will be available in your vehicle! Android Auto features: Google Maps, Google Now, a Google voice feature and audio and messaging apps while Apple CarPlay features: Phone, Messages, Music, Siri and third-party apps. If you have a device equipped with Android Lollipop 5.0 or newer or an iPhone 5 or later, you’re ready to begin using these new features!

Finally, to make using these smartphone system features even easier, 2016 Chevy models will come equipped with a button on the steering wheel that allows you to control them with a simple voice command, helping you avoid distractions and drive safe. 

Chevy vehicles have always combined great design and performance, and now they’ve taken the wheel in the automotive technology race. The New Chevy Cars and New Chevy Trucks at our Gaines Area Chevy Dealership are perfect examples of that! Come see for yourself how Chevy is making strides in automotive technology.
