When you first purchase a car, especially a car as beautiful as the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, it can be difficult not to worry about it when it’s out of sight. To help make new Corvette owners more comfortable with leaving their car in the hands of other people, Chevrolet is introducing the new Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder.
“Think of it as a baby monitor for your car,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette Product manager. “Anyone who has felt apprehension about handing over their keys will appreciate the peace of mind of knowing exactly what happened while their baby was out of sight.”
With this new system, which is industry-exclusive, drivers will be able to lock the interior storage, disable the infotainment system, and record video, audio, and vehicle data whenever Valet Mode is active. All you need is a unique four-digit code! The entry code simultaneously locks the storage bins, glove box, and disables the radio and infotainment system.
The Performance Data Record (PDR), which was created originally for use on the racetrack, uses a 720p, high definition camera, a dedicated microphone, a self-contained telemetry recorder, and an SD-car slot in the glove box to record. With this system, drivers can keep an eye on their baby, even if they’re not within sight.
All 2015 Corvette models will be available with Valet Mode. For more information on the release and specs of this superb sports car, stop in or contact Wiesner of Huntsville today!
