Chevrolet has good news for U.S. customers looking to buy a 2016 model year vehicle equipped with the eight-inch MyLink infotainment system – their cars are Android Auto-compatible. Beginning in March 2016, owners of properly equipped vehicles will be eligible for the Android Auto software update, available via Fred Caldwell Chevrolet and Chevrolet dealers nationwide.
“Thanks to the hard work and determination of our engineering team, Chevrolet consumers who use Android phones will not have to compromise when choosing which MyLink system meets their needs – both the seven-inch and eight-inch systems will offer Android Auto capability,” said Alan Batey, president GM North America and Global Chevrolet in a statement. “We are working with our dealers to make the software update as quick and easy as possible to minimize any inconvenience to our owners.”
Chevrolet will offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in 14 of its 2016 vehicles, more than any other car brand. From the affordable entry-level 2016 Spark to the high-end 2016 Camaro, Chevy’s customers will have unprecedented access to these highly-anticipated connectivity systems.
The update will not happen automatically, and Chevrolet drivers will need to contact their dealership to have the update installed. Chevrolet is working closely with dealerships to make sure installation is convenient and easy for their customers.
