General Motors to integrate Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode into 2013 Spark and Sonic
General Motors announced that it will be integrating Apple's Siri voice control system in two of its 2103 models - the Chevy Spark and Sonic LTZ and RS models.
They will come with Siri's Eyes Free regime, that was announced during Apple's WWDC event, pairing up an iOS 6 device with the MyLink infotainment system.
Eyes Free keeps your screen shut to avoid distractions, but Siri helps you make calls, send messages, check your calendar, play music and so on. Chevy's marketing director Cristi Landy issued a statement on the news:
It says a lot about our commitment to small-car customers that Chevrolet has announced that Siri Eyes Free capability will be available in the Spark and Sonic well before the luxury brands. Safe, easy, reliable and portable connectivity is a top priority for our customers, and Siri complements MyLink's existing capabilities to help deliver an incredible driving experience.
