Chevy integrates a new smartphone app into newest Spark and Sonic models

The new Chevrolet Spark and Sonic will feature the GogoLink smartphone app that works in conjunction with the new Chevrolet MyLink technology. GogoLink delivers full-function navigation, which includes live traffic updates.

“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.

GogoLink was introduced to provide a safe and smarter way to access navigation. With a projected 90 percent of Spark and Sonic customers expected to have smartphones, GogoLink seemed like a perfect fit. The application will include: emergency information for police, fire and hospitals, thousands of points of interest, local search via google, Where am I? locator, live traffic functionality, crash reports, lane closures, alternative routes, 3D maps, ability to store native maps to your smartphone, and turn-by-turn directions even during low signal quality.

MyLink is standard among 1LT and 2LT versions of the Spark and the LTZ, LS, LT and RS Sonic. MyLink operates by combining information from the owner’s smartphone via Bluetooth or USB plug-in. This allows a safe way to not only access your smartphone while it’s safely stowed but also enjoy added benefits of using it in combination with the MyLink technology such as: personal playlists of stored music, hands-free calling, voice activation, ability to project video via USB while vehicle is parked, the ability to project a photo album in slideshow mode with background music, and of course the previously described navigation functions.

The application is simple to use and once the smartphone is plugged in to the MyLink system the options are all displayed on a touchscreen. Each menu selection then leads you to a clearly displayed list of functions such as: audio, pictures and movies, telephone, smartphone link, and settings.

The equipped Spark and Sonic models with also come with two additional apps that both Sonic Phoenix and Spark Phoenix drivers would appreciate: Pandora internet radio and Stitcher Smart Radio. Once owners connect their compatiable smartphones they will have access to these apps and other functions.

In addition to MyLink and GogoLink the Spark also features new technology such as StabiliTrak electronic stability control, and is the only car in its class with a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and features OnStar. The Sonic is performance oriented and is one of the only models in its class that offers a turbocharged engine, a 138-horsepower Ecotec 1.4L. The Sonic also features sport-tuned suspension and state-of-the-art exterior and interior materials.
