Its in-your-face colours already make the 2013 Chevy Spark vehicle hard to lose in a crowd. Now the Chevrolet Spark will be even harder to get lost while driving the Spark and the Sonic, thanks to available GogoLink.
GogoLink is an embedded smartphone application that delivers full-function navigation – including live traffic updates – through the vehicles’ MyLink infotainment system. It was introduced today and is expected to be available in the fall. Consumers can test-drive GogoLink for themselves at a special kiosk in the Chevy exhibit the New York International Auto Show.
“GogoLink gives Spark and Sonic customers cloud-based navigation and live traffic alerts projected on the vehicle’s seven-inch, high-resolution touch screen for a great value,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet marketing director for small cars.
About 90% of expected Chevrolet Spark and Chevy Sonic buyers own smartphones, Landy said. “This technology is typically found on cars costing far more, but next-gen customers are accustomed to being connected. By using a smartphone app, Chevrolet found a smart and safe way to provide navigation.”
Because GogoLink navigation will become available after Chevrolet Spark goes on sale, the first Chevy Spark vehicles sold will require a simple update at the dealer to accommodate the app.
GogoLink pricing will be announced later.
MyLink is standard on 1LT and 2LT versions of the Chevrolet Spark, as well as the Chevy Sonic LTZ and upcoming Chevrolet Sonic RS vehicles.
MyLink is available on Sonic LS and LT models. On Spark and Sonic, MyLink operates by integrating the owner’s compatible smartphone and stored media – via Bluetooth, plug-in outlet or USB – with the radio. This lets owners enjoy simple, safe and personalized connectivity while their smartphone is safely stowed.
