What is Chevy MyLink? It’s the latest connectivity feature, and you’ll use it to access your smartphone, download apps, and more. It’s the multimedia center of your vehicle, and what it can do is only limited by the apps you add to it.

How Can You Use Chevy MyLink?

Chevy MyLink offers smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can access features, apps, and your contact list as you drive. Alternatively, you can head straight to the Chevrolet Shop to browse and install apps for audiobooks, music, and more. Some of the most popular options include SiriusXM, Pandora Internet Radio, and Stitcher.

When you lend your car to your kids, available Teen Driver technology can make sure they wear seatbelts, turn on certain safety systems, keep the music down, stay under a certain speed, and more.
