Buick IntelliLink To Come Standard On 2012 Buick Verano3
When the 2012
Opel Astra Buick Verano makes its way to dealerships across the country later this year, the Delta II-based Buick will have the IntelliLink infotainment system as standard equipment, GM Authority’s sources have revealed.
The system, which is the equivalent of the Chevrolet MyLink announced for GM’s bow tie brand, will also be available (and perhaps also be standard) in the 2012 Regal and LaCrosse as well as the 2013 Enclave. IntelliLink will offer a plethora of infotainment features via its new high-resolution full-color 7-inch touch screen display, including cell phone integration via Bluetooth and/or USB for the delivery of text messages and emails.
It will also offer playback of (audio) files stored on the device as well as Stitcher and Pandora streaming via Bluetooth Audio (A2DP) or USB. Furthermore, IntelliLink will integrate with touch screen navigation systems while expanding Buick’s existing Bluetooth and USB capabilities — allowing smartphone control by means of voice commands and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Now there is a good idea!
Does this mean that navigation is standard on the Verano? Or is this going to be similar to what Infinity does – include the screen, but not the nav software.
Nav will still be optional — as far as I know. This, however, is much better than having 2 different center stack designs in my opinion (less manufacturing complexity) — and will result in more value for the customer who does not opt for the nav! They will get a color screen (as opposed to monochrome) and more features.
