Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available in the versatile vehicles at your local Lake Jackson GMC dealer. GMC just announced that the new technology will be compatible with the intuitive Intellilink infotainment system in trucks from Don Davis GMC.
The Canyon, Sierra and Yukon will get Apple’s in-car technology while Android integration will be available in the GMC Sierra in TX and across America.
The enhanced integration between phone and vehicle that automakers and device manufacturers have been working to perfect will make in-car infotainment systems even easier to use and offer more useful features that drivers have demanded.
While current Intellilink users can easily make phone calls and listen to music via Bluetooth connectivity with phones and tablets, the new improvements to the system will allow for information to appear on the large dash screen the same as it appears on an Apple or Android device. It’s a perfect solution for folks who just want to jump into their new truck from Lake Jackson GMC dealers without spending any time learning a new electronic system.
Phone apps like those offering navigation, music, content streaming, communications and an ever-growing list of good stuff. Whether you’re using the Apple or Android system, icons, menus and content appears on the in-dash screen the same as it does on your phone. This should not only make accessing device features easier, but it should also make the in-car experience safer. Without having to look for things on a tiny phone screen, everything will show up bold and bright on the dash where a driver’s eyes are not far-removed from the road ahead.
So what are you waiting for? Come test drive a new GMC Sierra at Don Davis Buick and GMC today. These are the finest trucks on the market, and they’re about to be updated with the latest in-car info and entertainment technology.
