Chevrolet rolling-out MyLink smartphone integration for some 2012 models
Chevrolet has just announced its new MyLink smartphone integration system, which will allow you to control your Apple/BlackBerry/Android device using the built-in controls in your car. Chevy's 2012 Volt and Equinox will be the front-runners of the new feature unveiled on the Engadget Show.
Currently, app support is limited to the Pandora and Stitcher apps, but – of course – more are coming down the road. The app will support voice recognition and you will be able to control commands through buttons on the steering wheel, which is a pretty convenient way to stay focused on the road. The system is still in its development phase, but it seemed to work fairly well with Apple's iPhone. And so far there are no details when it comes to pricing, but we expect to hear more about MyLink in the coming months. Finally, we're glad to see Chevy join others like GM's Ford (with its AppLink system) and Toyota (with its Entune system) in smartphone integration in cars.
