Chevrolet Will Offer Siri Eyes Free on Six More Models
The feature that integrates the Siri Personal Assistant feature on the iPhone will now be available on six other models, says Chevrolet. Chris Perry, Chevrolet Vice President of Marketing, said that the Siri application complements “existing capabilities to help deliver an incredible driving experience.” Luckily, that feature will now be available on the 2014 SS, the Volt, the Camaro, the Cruze, the Equinox, and the Malibu, right here at Chevy of Homewood.
The feature provides added functionality to the Chevrolet MyLink system. Drivers can activate Siri simply by pressing a button on the steering wheel. After that the driver can easily dictate commands. Siri using sophisticated voice recognition technology and can answer questions, make calls, search the internet, play music, compose and send text messages, and just about anything else. Whatever the iPhone can do, a user can accomplish using Siri.
The Eyes-Free feature means that when the phone is connected to the MyLink system, the driver never has to take her eyes off the road to use Siri. That should help reduce driver distraction and improve safety. The screen of the iPhone is also prevented from lighting up, helping to minimize distraction.
The Siri feature does require an iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, or a third or fourth generation iPad, iPad mini, or a fifth generation iPod Touch, along with an internet connection.
