If you’ve been following GM Authority, you may have heard about the planned integration of the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with the BringGo navigation application. Well, the integration between the two apps is now possible — meaning that you can have affordable and full-featured navigation in your 2013 Spark or Sonic.
The integration with the BringGo app results in the displaying of the maps and menus from the smartphone on the actual MyLink touchscreen, allowing for safe and convenient access to maps and navigation; in addition, BringGo functionality includes voice navigation, live traffic alerts, instant access to emergency locations, access to thousands of Points of Interest (POI), and — of course — the ability to determine the current location.
BringGo is roughly $50, substantially less expensive and more feature-rich than a standalone GPS unit… and the fact that compact vehicles from competing makes don’t offer such a tightly-integrated solution as BringGo and MyLink — not Hyundai, Mini, Kia, Ford, or Mazda — makes the deal that much sweeter. But there’s more where that came from: those who simply wish to try out the MyLink-BrinGo integration without spending the full fifty bucks are in luck, since a 30-day trial app is available for a mere 99 cents.
The following video provides a more in-depth overview of the MyLink-BringGo integration:
