The automaker announced Tuesday that dealers now have the software to update eight-inch MyLink systems with Android AutoTM capability in select 2016 model year vehicles. Owners who qualify for the free software update will get a notification from Chevy. It takes about 30 minutes at the dealership.
“We are working with our dealers to make the software update as quick and easy as possible to minimize any inconvenience to our owners,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
2016 Chevrolet models with the seven-inch MyLink system already include both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, so they don’t need the update. The update is for the eight-inch MyLink systems in the Malibu (excludes Limited), Impala, Volt, Camaro, Camaro Convertible, Corvette, Corvette Convertible, Colorado, Silverado, Silverado HD, Tahoe and Suburban.
Chevy says its 2016 Cruze sedans with compatible MyLink systems will arrive in dealer showrooms with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability installed and will not require the software update.
