“The TuneIn app for MyLink gives Spark buyers a truly global, personalized infotainment solution,” said Sara LeBlanc, global program manager for Chevrolet and General Motors infotainment. “Soon, Spark buyers around the world will have the ability to listen to electronic music from Europe, a talk show in Africa or classic rock in L.A., all controlled through the car radio. For our customers, it gives a whole new meaning to the question, ‘What in the world are you listening to?'”
The TuneIn app has more than 40 million users across 230 countries and territories to global audio content via mobile apps for all smartphone and tablet platforms, smart TVs, smart radios, connected vehicles and online at tunein.com.
If a Spark owner wishers to access TuneIn, all they have to do is download the free app to a compatible smartphone and connects the phone with MyLink.
Chevrolet said it expects TuneIn to be available in the spark starting the first quarter of 2013. In addition to Chevrolet Spark 1LT and 2LT models, MyLink Radio is standard on the Chevrolet Sonic RS.
