MyLink offers new levels of connectivity

The driver can select a name from the stored directory, touch the call function and project the call through the vehicle speakers. Personal playlists, photo galleries, phone books, other stored media and data can also be accessed easily.

A selection of special apps are embedded in the Chevrolet Cruze: Customers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 7 can ask Siri, an intelligent assistant, to perform a number of tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. An Eyes Free mode enables drivers to interact with their iPhones using nothing more than their voice while keeping the device's screen from lighting up.

Owners can use Siri in Eyes Free mode to make voice-activated, hands-free calls to contacts on their iPhone, play songs in their iTunes libraries, switch music sources automatically from AM/FM radio to iPod mode, or listen to or send an iMessage or text message to a phone number or anyone in saved contacts.

Also, Chevrolet MyLink users can utilize the TuneIn smartphone app, a streaming audio powerhouse that provides seamless connectivity to live local, international and internet radio and links listeners to a global network of 70,000 stations.
