GoGoLink offers affordable navigation option for Chevrolet Spark, Sonic

The 2013 Chevrolet Spark, which comes standard with the brand’s new MyLink infotainment system, is now adding an affordable option for a navigation system thanks to GogoLink. The feature will also be made available on the Sonic.

GogoLink is an embedded smartphone application that delivers full-function navigation – including live traffic updates – through the vehicles’ MyLink infotainment system. If you’re headed to the 2012 New York Auto Show, you’ll be able to test it out at a specie kiosk at the Chevrolet stand.

“GogoLink gives Spark and Sonic customers cloud-based navigation and live traffic alerts projected on the vehicle’s seven-inch, high-resolution touch screen for a great value,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet marketing director for small cars. Landy says that about 90 percent of Spark and Sonic expected buyers own smartphones.

GogoLink navigation includes:

  • Emergency information such as police, fire and the nearest hospital
  • Thousands of points of interest
  • Local Search via Google
  • Where am I? locator
  • Live traffic functionality provides crash reports and lane closures, and with alternative routes
  • 3-D maps
  • Ability to store native maps to the customer’s smartphone, giving them access to locations and turn-by-turn directions even when phone signal quality is poor. Many GPS-enabled apps do not do this.

Prices for the GoGoLink navigation system will be announced closer to launch date of the Spark.
