JOLIET, Ill., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It's becoming increasingly common for new cars to offer a certain degree of smartphone integration. Whether it's simple media and music functionality or the integration of a phone's internal navigation system, consumers gradually find their connectivity options more important when searching for a new car.
While Chevy's available MyLink infotainment system already allowed drivers to pair their mobile devices via Bluetooth technology to access smartphone apps through the MyLink interface, iPhone users now also can utilize Apple's intelligent assistant — Siri — in most vehicles in the 2014 Chevy model lineup.
In the same fashion drivers would connect their smartphones to integrate apps into the MyLink system, voice-activated commands now are available with the push of a button on the steering wheel.
With Siri Eyes Free Integration, Chevy owners can speak naturally and command the system to make phone calls, switch music sources, play a specific song, compose text messages, and see personal calendars and upcoming events. Chevy vehicles equipped with this functionality also will receive six months of OnStar services.
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the available Siri integration is its vast availability. While it already was available in Chevy's subcompact car — the Chevy Spark— and the Sonic, it is expanding to six other 2014 Chevy models (Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS, and Volt).
Illinois car shoppers looking to experience Siri Eyes Free Integration can visit Bill Jacobs Joliet and discuss all available features with the vehicle specialists on the lot. With various technology and convenience packages, Bill Jacobs Joliet is the ideal source for Chicago-area consumers to access and understand the amenities available in new Chevy models.
