Chevrolet shows off TuneIn technology at CES

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is currently in full swing in Las Vegas, with a number of companies showing off the latest jaw-dropping technological advancements to the public.

Car manufacturers are there, too. Chevrolet has been providing people with an insight of its TuneIn capability today, which will appear in future Aveo models and the Chevrolet Cruze.

TuneIn will be able to provide motorists with a world of infotainment options thanks to its audio streaming capabilities and global network of 70,000 stations.

TuneIn will be compatible with Chevrolet MyLink Radio, with the software able to give motorists global access to personalised infotainment options through the car radio.

The smartphone-based app can easily connect to the car’s radio and is expected to be made available later this year for Chevrolet MyLink-equipped models. All drivers have to do is connect their phone to the car for instant access.

Owners can play their custom music libraries through the car’s radio, as well as access videos, photos, their contacts and more via Bluetooth, a plug-in outlet or USB. A number of options can then be selected via the car’s seven-inch touchscreen.

Drivers that also own a compatible iPhone will be able to access Siri technology, allowing them to perform a number of voice-activated tasks on the road.

“We listened to customers around the world when we developed Chevrolet MyLink, and we believe TuneIn will be a big hit with those who crave customised connectivity and entertainment,” says Cristi Landy, director, North America Chevrolet small cars and electric vehicles.

Chevrolet will be released more car-centric apps in the future, including navigation system BringGo.
