Navigating Your Infotainment System

 

Whether you’re good with technology or not, sometimes understanding new features can be a bit of a challenge. At Lannan Chevrolet of Lowell, we will help you better understand navigating your infotainment system.

Chevy MyLink provides a customizable way for you access a variety of entertainment, navigation, and connectivity features. However, learning how to customize your infotainment system may be challenging if you’re not familiar with the system.

Thankfully, the following information helps to break down all of the widgets so that you can navigate your infotainment system with ease and customize it to your exact liking.

On the Chevy MyLink Home Page, you will see a variety of widgets (buttons) on the screen. Tapping on these widgets will provide you with access to a new feature. Detailed information regarding these widgets can be found below.

AUDIO

By clicking on the audio button, you can access all of your available audio sources, from AM to FM to XM Radio. You can toggle between each of these audio sources by just pressing the respective button.

PHONE

Once you’ve paired your phone with Chevy MyLink, you can use your phone to make phone calls, access calendars, compose or listen to texts via voice control, or access music from your iTunes playlist.
