2014 Chevy Impala MyLink Infotainment System to be Fully-Customizable

It is odd how your Android phone or iPhone works so much better than any of the touchscreen systems fitted to production cars. The systems used for automotive applications usually lack processing power, so they lag, or their graphics appear pixelated, or they don`t have enough storage or connectivity - currently, none are particularly good, on any car we have tried out.
However, with the all-new Impala, Chevrolet will also introduce a new version of their MyLink system, which allows the user to full customize the layout and appearance of the UI (User Interface), by moving buttons around and choosing which button does what. Its makers claim it has SiRi-like voice recognition, but we will have to try it out for ourselves to confirm this.

Matt Fuligni, design manager for Chevrolet User Experince, said: “People are able to modify the look and feel of their smartphones and computers; now they can do that with their car, too.” Users will be also able to select various ‘personalities’ for the system: Contemporary, Edge (youth-oriented), Velocity (flashy) and Main Street (balanced).
