New APP Coming out to Chevy Spark and Sonic

 

Chevrolet has been busy releasing new technologies on their vehicles.  The new MyLink system has recently been released along with the addition of several other apps, including Pandora.  Chevy has not stopped yet it seems.

For their small car segment, the Chevy Sonic and the upcoming Chevrolet Spark are going to be outfitted with the new “GogoLink” app.  This app leverages owners’ smartphones (which supposedly, it is stated that about 90% of Spark/Sonic buyers will have one) along with the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system to deliver several new functionalities.

These include:

  • Live traffic updates that provide current crash reports, lane closures and alternative routes to take during such events.
  • Many different points of interest will be loaded into the database.
  • Local search via Google.
  • Position locator
  • 3-D Map Display
  • Emergency information, such as local police and fire department information as well as nearby hospitals.

The new GogoLink is expected to be shown to the public at the New York Auto Show in April.  This app allows Chevy drivers to store maps on their smartphones, which will allow them to access locations and turn-by-turn directions even in an area with weak signals coverage.

All of this information will be presented on the vehicle’s high-resolutions, 7-Inch touchscreen.  This value is typically something you would see on cars costing much more.  These small cars are going to offer features that will hopefully change the segment expectations!
