We love how automakers are integrating technology inside their new vehicles to make your driving experience safer and more enjoyable. This news from Chevrolet really caught our attention today. You’ll be able to listen to Pandora® internet radio in your Chevy car!
When the new 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and 2012 Chevrolet Volt vehicles go on sale later this year, they’ll be the first to offer Chevy MyLink – a new feature that builds on the safety and security of OnStar and integrates online services like Pandora and Stitcher SmartRadio®.
“There is a new generation of car buyers who don’t want to settle for mass market radio,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “They want to create their own individual stations and have access to them wherever they are. Chevrolet vehicles have offered customers the ability to use portable media devices since 2006 and the introduction of MyLink takes media personalization to a new level. ”
MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevy vehicles. MyLink also includes a seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color touch screen display that makes media selection easy to navigate.
You’ll also still have access to AM/FM/XM tuners, CD player with MP3 playback, and auxiliary and USB inputs.
