Buying a new Chevy
with the hopes of using Android Auto
during your daily commute? You'll have to sit tight for a while before that dream becomes reality. The carmaker announced
that an Android Auto software update will only reach its 2016 model-year vehicles next March, starting with those that have 8-inch MyLink touchscreen systems. That's going to be a long half-year wait if you're eager to get Google Maps directions through the center stack. The good news? Chevy
is promising that all vehicles with 7- and 8-inch MyLink displays (ranging from the Spark to the Corvette
) will eventually have Android Auto, so you won't have to drive one of the brand's swankier machines to get a smartphone-powered infotainment deck.
