Chevrolet has announced that additional models equipped with Chevrolet MyLink will now be available with Siri Eyes Free integration, the intelligent assistant developed by Apple that lets users perform a variety of tasks with their iPhones using only the power of their voice.
Using the Chevrolets’ MyLink infotainment systems with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 or iOS 7 will let drivers perform many tasks while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes safely on the road. Some of the available actions include making calls, playing songs from an iTunes library or switching to radio, accessing calendars and appointments, and even listening to, composing, and sending text messages.
The models also come with six months of OnStar’s premium Directions and Connections service, which adds safety and connectivity with services such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, and Vehicle Diagnostics. Buyers who own a non-Apple smartphone can still download the RemoteLink Mobile App, which lets OnStar subscribers control and manage several vehicle functions from their phone—like locking the vehicle, flashing the lights, and even honking the horn.
