Some pics of the updated MyLink





Gas Station feature (can sort by distance or fuel price), you can select which fuel type you want as well.


Home Screen items


Unfortunately the "Movies" one is misleading - it doesn't play movies, but rather lets you search by movie title and theater for show times. For the "Pictures" one though, it runs off of a USB drive. I have the file formats that MyLink can read somewhere, will post them up in the MyLink Information for Developers thread some point today.

Only because I was near DC when I took the picture. I pay about $3.85 at the station near my house. And yes, they mark gas up that much in DC.

Not saying I did, but IF I went above 4k RPMs I'd see that my shift timing light works just like its supposed to.

Alright that makes more sense now. That is about the same I pay near my house for 93.

Yup! Don't know who at GM snuck them into the MyLink - but they are hands down the BEST part of the Navigation system - ok, the gas prices thing is pretty cool too but that's done by XM.

Stig, found out the shift light function on my Zl1 tonight. Made it come up on accident lol.

HUD has to be on g meter mode
Coming from a stop, put the car in 1st and take off pretty quick. I only went up to 4k RPM since im breaking in but the light came on doing this. I retested and it worked.

When you gassed up how many gallons did it take? Since the car holds 19 gallons, 208 / 19 = 10.9 mpg but that's assuming you run the tank dry which you didn't do. So even if you still had 1 gallon in the tank 208 / 18 is 11.5 mpg which still seems rather low. Is this normal for ZL1 owners? I've never looked at that.

With all the stuff I've done to my car, and including that I don't granny drive it I still average about 14.9 mpg around town. On the freeway in 6th I get about 24-25 mpg.

Not to rain on your parade or anything but when you said 208 I was thinking that seemed awfully low. Is this average for a ZL1 during it's break-in period?
