The 2024 Corvette introduces the fifth model year for the mid-engine sports car, bringing with it a few important updates and changes. Among these changes is a new infotainment system that incorporates Google built-in features. Now, GM Authority is taking a closer look at the new infotainment system in the 2024 Corvette.
The 2024 Corvette is now equipped as standard with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium audio system with an eight-inch touchscreen. Tagged with RPO code IOK, this system incorporates Google built-in features, but also continues to offer wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for those customers that prefer the smartphone mirroring services.
The new IOK Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium audio system with eight-inch touchscreen replaces to systems offered previously for the C8 Corvette during the course of the 2020 through 2023 model years. Specifically, these systems that were replaced include (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses:
- Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium audio system with eight-inch touchscreen (IOS)
- Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium audio system with connected navigation and eight-inch touchscreen (IOT)
The IOS system was previously included as standard on C8 Corvette Stingray 1LT and C8 Corvette Z06 1LZ trim levels, while the IOT system was offered as optional on C8 Corvette Stingray 1LT and C8 Corvette Z06 1LZ trim levels, and included as standard on C8 Corvette Stingray 2LT and 3LT, as well as C8 Corvette Z06 2LZ and 3LZ trim levels.
As GM Authority covered previously, OnStar, GM’s subscription-based telematics service, now includes a slew of Google Built-in features. These features include Google Maps, Google Assistant, and Google Play. However, users who choose not to pay for an OnStar subscription will lose out on some of these features, and as it turns out, the only features available without a subscription are AM/FM radio, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio connectivity, and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto.
As a reminder, the 2024 Corvette lineup includes the C8 Corvette Stingray, the C8 Corvette Z06, and the new-for-2024 C8 Corvette E-Ray. All three models ride on the GM Y2 platform and are produced at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
