Chevrolet first with full Apple Siri integration
Apple iPhone’s hands-free software will be controlled via Bluetooth
Siri is Apple’s ‘intelligent personal assistant’ available on phones running the latest iOS 6 software. Siri can control an iPhone’s functions or be used to search for information held online, but until now it hasn’t been possible to fully control Siri through a car’s infotainment system.
Chevrolet’s MyLink system will be the first with full Eyes Free Siri integration, allowing users to play music, read or write texts, use maps or make a phone call via voice control.
However, other car makers are hot on Chevrolet’s heels, with Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes and Toyota all set to offer Eyes Free integration with their infotainment systems in the near future.
