Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment System
Enjoy quick, easy, and intuitive access to your favorite information and entertainment features thanks to the Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen interface. Integrated into the center console, this seven- or eight-inch touchscreen interface gives you access to HD radio, satellite radio, Pandora Internet radio, Stitcher Smart Radio, pictures and video, and much more.
OnStar Telematics and Wi-Fi
Every 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, except for the basic Work Truck (WT), comes equipped with the OnStar telematics system. This means you’ll be safer on the road thanks to advanced features like automatic crash notification, emergency roadside assistance, remote door unlocking, and a stolen vehicle assistance feature.
You’ll also be able to stay more connected on the job thanks to the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that turns your truck into a portable Internet hotspot so you can stream video on up to seven devices and send emails without the worry of interrupted coverage.
Enhanced Driver Alert Package
Driving a pickup has never been safer thanks to the available Enhanced Driver Alert package. Feel more secure behind the wheel with the help of this suite of technologies, including lane departure warning and intervention, forward collision, and a Safety Alert feature that causes the driver’s seat bottom to buzz as an extra sign of warning when there’s a vehicle or object in your way. Standalone safety features include a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors.
As part of the Chevy MyLink system, you’ll get total smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Unlike other clunky interfaces, when your phone is paired with the Chevy MyLink system via the appropriate smartphone integration system, it reflects the clean and easily navigable interface of your phone so that you don’t have any trouble finding what you’re looking for. With both of these features, you’ll be able to access photos, video, and use many of your favorite smartphone apps on the car.
