    Default Android Auto Update Now Available At Chevy Dealers

    Android Auto Update Now Available At Chevy Dealers

    Dealers will install software update for eight-inch MyLink radios free-of-charge

    2016-03-01
    GM Media


    DETROIT – U.S. Chevrolet dealers now have the software to update eight-inch MyLink systems with Android AutoTM capability in select 2016 model year vehicles. The update is only available through Chevrolet dealers.

    Owners of 2016 model year Chevrolet vehicles that qualify for the software update will receive a communication from the brand on how to receive the update at no cost. The update is expected to take approximately 30 minutes.
    “We are working with our dealers to make the software update as quick and easy as possible to minimize any inconvenience to our owners,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.

    Chevrolet models with the seven-inch MyLink system already include both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability and therefore do not require any update. Apple CarPlay has been integrated with both the seven-inch and eight-inch MyLink systems in select vehicles since the start of the 2016 model year.

    2016 model year Cruze sedans with compatible MyLink systems will arrive in dealer showrooms with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability installed and will not require the software update.

    Chevrolet offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in more models than any automotive brand. The 14 Chevrolet models include vehicles ranging from the brand’s most affordable car, the all-new 2016 Spark, to its highest performance model, the Corvette Z06.

    Using either application is simple in a compatible 2016 Chevrolet. A “Projection” icon on the MyLink screen is visible when a phone is not connected, then changes to indicate either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto (whichever is applicable) when a compatible phone is connected via USB.

    Android Auto requires a phone running the Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or higher, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or later. The user interfaces themselves are designed and developed by Apple (for Apple CarPlay) and Google (for Android Auto).

    Compatible third-party apps need to be downloaded to a phone before using. Apple and Google’s privacy statements and terms of use apply. Data rates will also apply.

    Malibu (Excludes Limited)

    Volt
    Camaro

    Default Android Auto Update isn't Updating

    I've been to 2 dealers and was informed that the Android Auto Update recently made available to Chevrolet dealers won't update the car when the software, successfully to a USB stick is plugged into the car. The cars were an Impala and a Malibu (a Chevy district managers car). They think the download isn't good. Perhaps these dealers aren't doing it properly?

    Our Corvette Technician is off today, but working tomorrow. I'll talk with him when he gets in and respond back here.

    I just spoke with our Corvette Technician and he's done half a dozen upgrades now via USB stick without any problems.

    OK, thanks, I'll call the dealers and see if they had any subsequent success. Just don't want my C7 "bricked".
