I am enjoying the new truck but I have a problem with MYLink and my IPhone 5 and it's applicaitons.
I noticed the other day when I got a text message on my phone (IPhone 5) while driving my truck the other day I never heard the phone give me a text message ring. It did however vibrate as it is programmed up to do both at the same time. At first it thought this was no big deal as I really don’t care if I get a text message while I drive because I don’t text and drive at the same time.
Today I wanted to try out how the navigation on my IPhone 5 worked with the new truck and it left me very disappointed. I first tried Google maps then I tried the IPhone own map product and they both reacted the same. What I found out was that once I put in a location to navigate to it would show me my route and it would show me each turn I needed to make however the IPhone voice turn
by turn was silent. That is correct I never heard any instructions on when to turn. So, I tried a couple of things and one of things I tried that made it work was to turn off the Bluetooth on my IPhone then I got voice commands telling me when to turn. This is unacceptable as I need both to work together not separately. Next I tried having my phone connected by Bluetooth and changing the connection to media. Then all of a sudden my Google Maps voice turn came thru the system with no problems. My text sounds came thru and it seemed as it all worked. However once I changed the source back to FM, AM, or XM Google map voice and text message tone no longer worked again. I am surprise that Chevy (MYLink) have not found out about this problem earlier and would have a fix out to the public real quick.
Then when I was on vacation I was talking with my sister who has an 2013 Impala with MyLink and a Droid phone she was having the same problem.
Really...why can't Chevy (MYLink) get this bug fixed?
