Chevy MyLink's improved software Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham here at CES 2013 [unk] 2014 Chevy Impala, the star comes out this spring and it's got the next generation MyLink's entertainment system. Now, this is mostly a new interface over the standard features that Chevy previously rolled out with MyLink. So, you've first, you got hands-free phone calling, navigation, digital audio and also some apps like Pandora and weather. But the really cool thing about this new interface is it borrows a lot from the Smartphone. Same as the iPhone, it can actually re-arrange the icons on the screen. You'll only see 8 icons per screen and you get multiple screens. So, plenty of icons, plenty of apps - whatever GM offers in the Chevy Impala. I can also drive one of these icons up into this upper bar here and there's about 4 icons and it stays static in the upper part of the screen. When I'm on other screens, so I can now have quick access to things like navigation or phone or Pandora's just what I put up there. And to get out of the app mode, I just push this home button and beyond that customization, there's also my new favorite feature here - it's called 'favorites'. These take the place of presets where you used to be able to, save different stations - XM, FM, AM. Now, you can save pretty much anything and Chevy actually lets you save phone numbers, destinations - pretty much anything that's included in entertainment system as a favorite. So, you can have immediate access to it. You just need to push the button and make a phone call, switch a radio station. You'll also see a few other things in here like a new navigation system. This is stored on flash drive and we've got different maps here, look really good. And one cool trick with this new MyLink system is that - so, you have a radio station playing here. You can hold your finger across here, swipe it across the screen and it will send it to the instrument cluster display. And, one funky thing too is this whole screen opens up and we got a little [unk] where you can store your phone, keep it out of sight, out of your hands.
