Chevy Announces Next-Gen MyLink to Include Apple’s Siri

Chevrolet has announced that Early in 2013 Apple’s hands free technology system will be integrated with the next-generation MyLink system.   This will allow use of the SIRI program simply by pressing a button on the steering wheel.  This new technology will be showing up initially on the Spark and Sonic.

Here are a few features that you can expect:

  • Make a voice-activated hands-free call to any of your contacts on your iPhone.
  • You can play songs from your iTunes library simply by asking it to play an artist or song.
  • You can listen, compose, and send a text message to a phone number or anyone in your contacts.
  • You can access your calendar to check appointments as well as add apointments.
  • You will be able to keep your eyes on the road while SIRI tells you the weather, latest sports scores or national holidays.
  • SIRI will not be able to provide answers to any questions that require a web page to be opened (while in eyes free mode).

In order to utilize this functionality, the user must have an iPhone 4S or 5 running IOS6 or greater.  Chevrolet has also announced that the next generation of its MyLink infotainment system will debut with the 2014 Impala and then later come out in the new Body Silverados, Tahoes, Suburbans, and Corvettes.  Chevrolet will be the first automaker to roll this out in its products.
