They should have gone with Microsoft. I really doubt MyLink will compete with a software giant. Unless of course, Microsoft has an agreement with Ford.

Sorry, but Apple is the one that reinvented what it has. Touch Screens, Smart phones, Apps have been in the market before Apple released the iPhone. They were just never integrated and advertised like Apple did.

I had two touch screen phones before the iPhone came out. I had an HTC touch HD in 2008 that has a 3.8" screen with two video cameras, it could send picture messages and take video...apple is really good at copying other peoples ideas.

There were tablets before the iPad and MP3 players before the iPod.

Arguing about Apple/Android is like arguing Ford/Chevy. They both have their points that people like one better than the other...

Indeed.
Was at the MT Carshow over the weekend Attend every year and this year GM had triple the floorspace and the Energy level was up there as well Great to see. Would take a new Impala with the upgraded Mylink. The redesign looks like a winner.

After reading this thread, I can say this.....

I see a lot of people here not wanting this, but the overall picture, the mass majority does.... So if a million people hate it and 2million love it.. What do you think GM will do?

They gonna make it!

The more I see of the new Impala the more I like it. I just wish they would have gone more for a retro triple tail light look instead of the generic style they chose.

I stayed away from the 2013 because of MyLink. I would rather a foot-pedal-carbeurator v8, but you can't buy one of those anymore. Definately think that they should offer the MyLink as an option, and still keep the "oldschool" concepts as standard. (sounds funny coming from a kid)

Looks pretty nice tho...
I can definitely document this into our database as a suggestion so many departments of GM can access the information. What didn't you like about the new ColorTouch radio?

I wish the focus on radios would get back to the sound. All this talk about all the wizbang screens and connectivity and phone compatibility crap.... how does it sound.

What has been a common complaint with the Camaro. Lack of awesomeness in the sound system.

Give me a radio that rocks with incredible sound, sure make it compatible with phones... but put some focus on the sound. One of the last OE systems that really impressed me was a Harmon Karden system in a couple year old Buick. That thing rocked with incredible sound. Test drove some newer cars with touch screen wizbang systems. All the salesman wanted to show me was how many smart phone and internet functions it could do. Couldn't even figure out how to make it sound great, if it did.

Touch screen PDAs? They existed long before apple even got into cellphones.

Google voice command and input came out long before the glorified siri, I have been using it on my droid2 years before 4S was out

Also google navigation, try use it. Apple nav is a joke, even their CEO came out to apologize for leading ppl into the middle of nowhere constantly

Apple has very stylish products and easy to use interface, but nowhere on the map when it comes to power and cost to tech ratio.

Lol you remind me of ppl who say "all other shooting games copied from halo"

NOPE

Compare apple to android is more like compare BMW 328i to camaro SS, one has the brand name and luxury, but for the same price the other one has the power.

I know the other car is more comfy and has much better interior that beats most living rooms, but it just does not offer the same type of power regardless what the fanboys think

Thanks for the post and the pic. I am a Camaro/Vette kinda dude, but I do like the styling of this new Impala. If I were still hauling the family around, like yesteryears, this 2014 Impala (GM for sure) might have been my pick.

I would be considered an old guy, and as wonderful as the older cars are, I personally prefer the new tech. The new MyLink system looks great and upgrades sounds good from the explanation. Much positive things to be said about older unique body styling and power, but so much improvement on powertrains (engine, trans, etc.) these days. My dealer maint guy said business not good these days (bad for him, good for us). He thanked me for giving him some business for an oil change.

Well stated, including prior thread postings! I personally think you giving Apple way too much credit, being an American company in name only. This coming from a new first time Galaxy S3 user (I did my research before purchase, with some already established points).

By the way, love your signature.

Oh thank you, here's another shot from this summer~

Personally I do think apple are stylish and the company is the best at marketing, I admire them cus I'm into marketing myself.

But when a product is propelled into the heavens by marketing alone, you are bound to have a ton of fanboys fabricate unreal ideas about it

I have had a friend saying:"your car is cool, but my friend has a crazy Benz also really fast."
I asked if it's an AMG or some type of 500/550, he said:"It's the C250,he's got it all modded out"

Welcome to the god tier of GPS devices, make sure to play around with both google nav and google maps, they r both free, they do slightly different things and both r handy

I wonder if anyone knows if or when they will incorporate the ability to download apps like a Android or Iphone. That way no matter which operating system you have you could get a nav app you like.

GPS is more about the data base behind it than the client side app or the device itself...... it's the map data and satellite network that counts
sure there are GPS interface easier to use than others, but until they get google maps to power the car navs, using a phone nav will remain superior

Wow! Nice pic. I almost missed the Camaro in the background.
Agree. Good marketing can cover up lack of functionality, at times.

That could be interpreted as a jealous comment from your friend.
Reminds me of the GT500 200+ mph marketing before the 240+ mph Camaro demo on the Austin-San Antonio closed private Texas highway.

I still occasionally use my Onstar nav out of town, as needed (awesome). I haven't yet needed to use my google nav app. Google maps app is very handy. Bluetooth and Pandora (home TV too)are my current fav apps.

The guy just doesn't know anything about cars, he even said "You sure SLK is cheaper than the SL? It has more letters"
He IS the demographic of the Slk lol, mediocre car that most ppl believe cost 6 figures until it drives

In google nav you can just tap the microphone icon, talk to it like "chinese buffet, philly" it will list all chinese buffets in the city starting from the closest to you
For google maps it will show more info like ratings and hours, directly onto the map, but it takes a bit longer to operate when you are on the run
Also if you are using google maps on your computer with the same gmail account, any locations you "Star" will automatically go to your phone nav

So I just search for a place online copy the address into google maps on my computer, star it, grab my phone and go, it will show up on google maps on the phone without any type of link or cable
