DETROIT–– Chevrolet said additional vehicles with Chevrolet MyLink will be available with Siri, Apple’s intelligent assistant. Siri Eyes Free Integration will be available on the 2014 Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS, and Volt.
“The response to Siri Eyes Free integration in Chevy Sonic and Spark from our customers has been remarkable,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of U.S. marketing. “Easy, reliable and portable connectivity is a top priority for our customers, and Siri complements MyLink’s existing capabilities to help deliver an incredible driving experience, so we’re excited to expand this to even more customers.”
Through the cars’ available Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, customers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 or iOS 7 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks. Siri offers hands-free functionality with an Eyes Free mode enabling drivers to interact with their iPhones using their voice while keeping the device’s screen from lighting up.
Owners simply connect their iPhone with the MyLink radio via Bluetooth and use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin and end sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.
The Siri Eyes Free mode allows users to make voice-activated, hands-free calls to contacts on their iPhone; play songs in their iTunes libraries, and switch music sources automatically; listen, compose and send an iMessage or text message their contacts; and access calendar and appointments.
