Earlier this year Chevrolet announced that they will be bringing Android Auto to several of its models. For those who wanted more details on the new platform, Chevrolet has since posted a press release detailing how the update will be issued to its customers, and for starters it will require owners to own a car with an 8-inch MyLink system.
According to the company, this update will be available come March 2016 and will be exclusive to Chevrolet dealers. This means that if you wanted to update your system to Android Auto, you will need to take your vehicle into a Chevrolet dealer in order to get it upgraded. It should be noted that not all vehicles are eligible as it will only apply to select 2016 models.
The company states, “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.” Alan Batey, president GM North America and Global Chevrolet also said, “We are working with our dealers to make the software update as quick and easy as possible to minimize any inconvenience to our owners.”
Now we expect that there are some of you guys out there who might have some reservations about using these new systems like CarPlay or Android Auto. If you’d rather not update then you won’t have to do anything on your end, but if you’d like to see what the future might be like for vehicle infotainment, then March 2016 will be the date to look forward to.
