Chevrolet is launching two new MyLink connected radios, presenting them for the first time in Europe.
Built around a 7 or 8-inch high-resolution full-color touch screen, Chevrolet's MyLink radios allow users to access their choice of media, including specialist apps, from their portable device. This includes phone books, personal playlists, photo galleries, and other stored data. Mass storage devices, including MP3 players, iPod, iPad can be connected through USB, Bluetooth or aux-in jacks.
The first of two new Chevrolet MyLink radios presented at the IAA 2013 further enhances the capabilities introduced by the entry-level device. It features an improved icon-based menu on its 7-inch touch screen. In addition to pass-through and embedded voice recognition, this system will offer text-to-speech, which allows users to listen to text messages from their smartphone. A rearview camera provides improved vision during parking maneuvers.
The second new MyLink radio is launching on the Corvette Stingray, it is an all-new tablet-inspired state-of-the-art Chevrolet MyLink connected radio. The system in the Corvette consists of two 8-inch LCD displays, enabling screen personalization, pairing of 10 bluetooth-enabled devices. The MyLink system on the new Corvette enables voice recognition, text-to-speech and optional integrated navigation. Owners will be able to upgrade the system with dedicated apps once they become available.
The entry-level version of the MyLink technology is currently available on select trims of the Chevrolet Aveo, Trax, and the Cruze compact car. It has a 7-inch high-resolution full-color touch screen and can store the pairing information of up to five smartphones at one time.
