The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 marks a big step forward for the nameplate, moving the engine to a new mid-mounted layout. Indeed, the new C8 is an innovating and exciting new addition to Chevy’s performance lineup, and it comes with all the latest infotainment tech and features to match. Now, Corvette Academy is providing an overview of the 2020 Corvette infotainment features in the following short video.
The 2020 Corvette is equipped with a standard eight-inch diagonal high-definition touchscreen, which is mounted adjacent to the digital gauge cluster and is oriented towards the driver. This screen features familiar, smartphone-esque controls to navigate, including swipe and pinch.
Models equipped with navigation include access to a variety of connected navigation services, such as points of interest, real-time traffic info, parking options, and local fuel prices, making it easy to get around no matter where you are. There’s also a predictive navigation feature which will learn the owner’s preferred routes and destinations for custom alerts via OnStar – for example, when traffic is detected on the route home.
The 2020 Corvette infotainment system comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are available through a wired USB connection. There’s also Bluetooth pairing via Near Field Communication for compatible phones, streamlining the process. Between the two seats, you’ll find a dedicated smartphone “pocket,” which includes available wireless phone charging.
For households with multiple drivers, the 2020 Corvette infotainment system offers multiple profiles for added customizability, including presets for radio stations, display preferences, and apps. These custom profiles can be linked to specific key fobs, or they are selectable via the infotainment screen.
Onboard audio systems include a standard 10-speaker setup from Bose, while the optional Bose Performance Series stereo steps it up to 14 speakers, as well as stainless steel speaker grilles that add a nice dose of metallic flash to the interior design, including a Corvette logo for the center speaker between the seats.
