For many, many reasons, people are not supposed to use cell phones while driving, as we all know very well. However, we also know that we still need to be connected to our phones while we drive. Fortunately, technologies like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are making that a safe and accessible reality now by allowing you to synchronize your phone with the car’s infotainment system.
These new technologies will be available on select 2016 GMC models, especially the Canyon, Yukon, and Sierra. “GMC IntelliLink is taking another step forward with this simple and intuitive functionality that makes phones and vehicles work better together,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, said. “Like other GMC features, from OnStar 4G LTE connectivity and active safety features, it’s technology designed to enhance the driving experience without intruding on it.”
CarPlay will be available on those select vehicles right from the beginning of the 2016 model year, followed by Android Auto capability later in the 2016 model run. Come see us here at Wiesner of Huntsville to learn more about these technologies, our great vehicles, and all the apps CarPlay and Android Auto support!
