Infotainment systems are something of a hot topic in the automotive world, because people who spend a lot of time in their cars can develop very strong feelings about how they interact with the car’s controls. The latest generation of infotainment system in Chevy’s cars is called MyLink, and Autobytel got a chance to look at how MyLink works in a Camaro ZR1. The MyLink system is available across the entire Chevy model lineup, but when a Camaro ZR1 is offered… well, why not? Benjamin Hunting, Road Test Editor for Autobytel, goes over the features of the Chevy MyLink system in this video review. The MyLink system is based on a 7-inch touchscreen that’s mounted in the dash, but the driver has other options to interact with the system, too. There are controls mounted in the steering wheel, and the system can also respond to voice commands, which can help reduce distractions while on the road. MyLink also features Bluetooth wireless phone integration and a customizable interface. As we mentioned earlier, car manufacturers are getting quite possessive over their proprietary infotainment systems, and having a superior system is a big sales advantage. In this particular Autobytel test, Benjamin Hunting notes that the Chevy MyLink system is less complicated and easier to use than the MyTouch system that comes in Ford vehicles.
