I wanted to show you a couple of videos about Apple Car Play and Android Auto in the 2016 Chevy Mylink infotainment systems. These aren’t my videos; I borrowed them from YouTube. I know, I totally need to make my own. I will soon!

The first video about Apple Car Play is for iPhone users, the second video about Android Auto is for Android users.

After Apple Car Play/Android Auto videos, I share a couple more YouTube gems about Chevy Mylink phone intergration, including Siri Hands Free, which is great if you’re in a 2014 or 15 Chevy, or even a 2016 Chevy that doesn’t have Chevy Mylink, but offers whats called “voice pass through.”

Enjoy! And please, contact me if you have questions or want to schedule a technology review with me.

7 Things To Do When You Buy a New Chevy

I’m learning that people can easily get overwhelmed when they buy a new car. It can be hectic at the dealership. There are so many decisions to make, a lot of waiting around and tons of new information to digest.

Sometimes, by the end of a car deal, car buyers have simply had enough. There are a few new car owners who don’t even want to learn more about their new car; they just want to take their keys and go. But really, they’re missing out on a variety of features they could enjoy in their new Chevrolet.

In case this sounds like you, I’ve created a few tips to help you take advantage of — at least some — of the features your new Chevrolet offers. And, I strongly recommend you schedule a follow up appointment with your sales consultant (hopefully it was me) to review some of the technology features in your new vehicle, such as Chevy Mylink, bluetooth, Apple Car Play/Android Auto, Onstar, 4G LTE Wifi, and the Remote Link App.

Here are 7 things to do immediately, after taking delivery of your new Chevrolet:

  1. Take your picture with your new car. Post it to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; text it, email it — and tell your friends about your sales consultant and the great service you hopefully received.
  2. Pair your phone to enjoy your vehicle’s blue tooth capabilities. Let your sales consultant help you, or check for the easy directions in your owner’s manual. Try bluetooth media streaming, Siri Hands Free and more!
  3. Push the blue Onstar button on your rear view mirror to complete your Onstar
    Onstar welcome call. You will be asked to create a 4-digit pin, and customize a user name and password for your vehicle’s WiFi. Ask your advisor for your Onstar account number and write it down. Your advisor might ask you if you’d like to be enrolled in Dealer Maintenance Notifications. Say “yes.” You might also be asked if you’d like to be enrolled in continuous coverage or to buy WiFi data, both of which is completely up to you.
  4. Onstar Remote Link AppDownload the Onstar Remote Link App. Once in the App, go to “Create Account” and use the account number you received during the Onstar Welcome Call. (If you didn’t get it, don’t worry. It will come in your email within 24 hours of your Welcome Call.) Login with your new account info to enjoy the FREE Key Fob service for 5 years, even without keeping an Onstar paid subscription. P.S. Your 2016 or newer Chevy also comes with a 3-month WiFi trial AND with Onstar Basic for 5 years, including diagnostics and dealer maintenance notification (excludes emergency services). Learn more about Chevrolet apps.
  5. Try out Onstar Directions and Connections. Push the blue Onstar button and ask an advisor to send directions to your next destination. Learn how to store a destination and plan a route! You can also send directions to your car using your Remote Link app from anywhere. Directions will begin once the car starts.
  6. MyChevrolet AppGo to My.Chevrolet.com and login using your Onstar account login information. Here, you can manage ALL your GM vehicles‘ service records, warranty info, recall alerts, how-to videos and owners’ manuals. You can also access all your vehicles’ Sirius XM, GM Reward Card and Onstar accounts from the My.Chevrolet.com portal. Learn more.
  7. Download the MyChevrolet App. This app gives you easier access to call roadside assistance (which you get free for 5 years in a new Chevy). It also allows you to set parking reminders, access your Remote Link App, schedule a service appointment, view your owner’s manual and understand what light indicators mean in your car — all from the app. Learn more about Chevrolet apps.
Learn about and use some your new Chevy's technology, including bluetooth and Onstar services, including Remote Link App and Directions and Connections.

The other thing that drives me crazy as a sales person, is that people actually forget they have free oil changes with their new car. I’ve had customers tell me they paid for their first oil change. Don’t let that be you! I want to remind you that you get two years free scheduled maintenance and free roadside assistance for five years from Chevrolet (or, free with Onstar while you have the free trial or a paid subscription).

Here are the complete details about your new Chevy’s service and warranties.

Take advantage of your two-year free scheduled maintenance, as well as five years roadside assistance and Onstar Basic.
