MyLink Android Auto Update - 2016 Chevrolet Volt

The MyLink audio system in our 2016 Chevrolet Volt was always able to support Apple CarPlay, but now it's been reflashed to support Android Auto, too.

    I agree. As I've mentioned numerous times in previous years, Google Maps is the ONLY car navigation that I'm interested in. Live Traffic + incredible smarts = no brainer. Gives your vehicle an instant feature upgrade to the whole "+ Navigation" trim level.

    Cool to see a S7 has replaced your iPhone, Dan. Will you be the resident Android tester since Carlos' departure? Based on all the great reviews of the S7, I am tempted to replace my S6 with it. Going to try to wait for the S8. :)

    Just picked up an S7 Edge this weekend after an unplanned swim to fish my daughter out of the pool bricked my Note 5. I like my Edge more than the Note 5, plus it is water resistant. LOL

    I really like the integration of Android on the infotainment, very nice.

    Don't worry about what other people think. Drive what makes you happy.

    It's a long story, but I've ended up with both. Something about AT&T's two-for-one and fourth line free promotions. I'm now in a unique position to compare and contrast Car Play and Android Auto on cars that support both, like the Volt.

    Dan, ah, yes, the two for one deal. Got it.

    FYI, I purchased my 2012 Chevy Volt after following your Long Term Test of the 2011 Volt.

    I'm now driving a leased Caddy ELR which expires in August. My target vehicle is either the Bolt BEV or the plug-in Hybrid Caddy CT6. Unfortunately, neither of these vehicles will be available by August. I might pickup a used Gen 1 Volt to tide me over until what I really want comes along. Used Gen 1s can be had for 11k-19k.

    I will be following this vehicle closely as I still might lease one of these if the price is right.

    Driving this after having driven a Gen I Volt extensively, this new Volt is a MASSIVE improvement. They're not in the same league.
