Chevrolet launches MyLink Infotainment system in response to Ford's SYNC

Chevy MyLink is mainly described as an in-car infotainment system that incorporates hands-free, internet radio, touch-screen controls and voice, all these being accessed through Bluetooth connectivity. The Equinox and 2012 Chevrolet Volt will be the first models to offer this MyLink system, which was developed together with GM's subsidiary OnStar and Chevrolet's aim was to have its own technology. A full-color 7-inch touch screen display that centralizes media sources, voice-activated commands, wireless control of smartphones together with stereo audio streaming, are features provided by MyLink, which drivers will definitely enjoy. The driver will have no impediment in initiating phone calls or selecting radio stations or stored media by a simple use of his voice. It seems that performance was achieved at its highest level and driving seems to be acquiring a whole new meaning. This came also as a response to Ford's launch of a similar system, which was named SYNC, three years ago. Back then, Ford intended to reunite in an efficient and friendly way the various in-car controls that can be accessed by the driver while driving.
Chevy MyLink system integrates other features, such as the Gracenote, which identifies the user's music collection and presents information concerning the artist name, genres and album cover art on the MyLink screen, or Pandora internet radio, which makes it possible for users to personalize their radio experience.
All in all, Mylink comprises all the traits of SYNC, adding a future integration of the Powermat wireless cell-phone charging system that allows the elimination of cords. In the next 18 months, other Chevrolet models are likely to incorporate the MyLink infotainment system.
