Chevrolet Confirms Android Auto Update

September 30th, 2015 by

Chevrolet will offer Android Auto compatibility via software
update to U.S. consumers who buy select 2016 model year vehicles
equipped with an eight-inch MyLink system. The update will be available
starting in March 2016 at Nimnicht Chevrolet.

Earlier this year, Chevrolet announced it will offer Android Auto and
Apple CarPlay compatibility in more 2016 models than any automotive
brand. The 14 Chevrolet models include vehicles ranging from the brand’s
most affordable car, the all-new 2016 Spark, to its highest performance
model, the Corvette Z06.

Chevrolet has a strong track record when it comes to broad
availability of customer-centric innovation. It was the first brand to
introduce Siri Eyes Free functionality and the first car company to
offer available OnStar 4G LTE connectivity across a range of cars,
trucks and crossovers in the U.S.

Using either application is simple in a compatible 2016 Chevrolet. A “Projection” icon on the MyLink screen is visible when a phone is not
connected, then changes to indicate either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto (whichever is applicable) when a compatible phone is connected via USB.
Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0
operating system or higher, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or
later. The user interfaces themselves are designed and developed by
Apple (for Apple CarPlay) and Google (for Android Auto).

Compatible apps need to be downloaded to a phone before using. Apple
and Google’s privacy statements and terms of use apply. Data plan rates
will also apply.
