Orange County area drivers love the Sonic and Spark not only because they are fun to drive and offer great fuel economy, but they also offer the latest in vehicle technology with MyLink

SANTA ANA, Calif. (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

2013 Chevrolet Sonic and Spark offers Orange County owners Chevrolet MyLink with available Siri, an intelligent assistant integrated with newer Apple iPhones that helps get things done just by asking.

“Orange County area drivers love the Sonic and Spark not only because they are fun to drive and offer great fuel economy, but they also offer the latest in vehicle technology with MyLink,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet. “Siri Eyes Free integration adds safety, ease, reliability and portability to the package.”

Through the cars' standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, Orange County area customers with a compatible iPhone* running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. To further minimize distraction, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further with an Eyes Free mode which enables drivers to interact with their iPhones using nothing more than their voice while keeping the device's screen from lighting up.

Owners simply connect their iPhone with the MyLink radio via Bluetooth, pair with the system, and use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin and end sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.

In the 2013 Spark and Sonic vehicles equipped with MyLink, Orange County owners can use Siri in Eyes Free mode to:

  •     Make voice-activated, hands-free calls to Contacts on their iPhone
  •     Play songs in their iTunes libraries, and even switch music sources automatically
        from AM/FM/XM radio to iPod mode

  •     Listen to, and compose and send an iMessage or text message to a phone number
        or anyone in saved Contacts

  •     Access Calendar and add appointments
  •     Minimize distraction even more by keeping the screen of the iPhone from lighting
        up even when Siri answers simple questions such as game scores or the dates of
        national holidays

Both the Spark and the Sonic also come with six months of OnStar's premium Directions and Connections service. OnStar brings added safety, security and connectivity to these vehicles, including services such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostics and Roadside Assistance.

Most smartphone owners can also download the RemoteLink Mobile App, which allows OnStar subscribers to control and manage certain vehicle functions from their phone. For more information on OnStar's services, visit onstar.com

Current 2013 Chevrolet Spark and Sonic owners can upgrade existing MyLink radios for Siri capability beginning in March.

  • Siri is available in Beta only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (3rd and 4th generations), iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation), and requires Internet access. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Cellular data charges may apply.
