MyLink† and Gracenote® use song information from your device to fill in the blanks on screen, but Gracenote needs to start somewhere. If the artist or album information is missing from your device, then Gracenote may not find an accurate match to fill in missing information on your screen. Make sure the music on your device is up to date and accurate.
No, Gracenote is technology embedded in the Chevrolet MyLink† system only, so it won’t add in any missing information on your MP3 player, USB drive or iPod®/iPhone®. But as long as the information on your device doesn’t change, the information the Gracenote filled in will be in your MyLink system every time you connect that device with Chevrolet MyLink.
Gracenote does its best to fill any voids in your music collection’s information. However, there are some artists or album covers that Gracenote may not be able to find because information was missing from your music files. If cover art is not available, images of the artist or genre will be displayed in its place.
This is perfectly normal. Once a device is connected, Gracenote starts working immediately to index the song list and assign voice tags. While this process is happening, the Gracenote logo will pop up on the screen, letting you know that the technology is working. The length of the indexing process will depend on the number of songs on your device.
Gracenote assigns digital voice tags so you can access artists, albums and genres just by saying their name. However, some new or less popular artists may not be in the Gracenote database. If different artists sing versions of the same song or if two artists have the same name, Gracenote will note this and you will be able to select the version you want.
The Gracenote More Like This feature uses the music database that is installed in your MyLink system. If a song is released after you purchased your vehicle, it will not be in the music database, so Gracenote cannot create a playlist.
MyMedia is a Chevrolet MyLink feature that lets you compile songs from connected music devices onto one playlist so you don’t have to switch devices to access all the music you have available.
MyMedia will create a playlist only after each smartphone paired with the MyLink system opts to allow MyMedia to collect music from each phone onto one playlist.
The smartphone must be present to access the stored favorite. You can save songs you like as one of your 60 Favorites but the smartphone or device that the song is stored on must be present for the song to play through MyLink.†
Yes, backseat passengers can control music using their paired device if it is selected for use.
Each MyLink system lets you save up to 60 Favorites. If there is a song or radio station that you want to save, press and hold an available Favorite space on your touch-screen until you hear a beep letting you know the song or station has been saved as a Favorite.
Chevrolet MyLink† has high-accuracy enhanced-voice-control technology but there are some things that could interfere with the system understanding your command. Highway speeds, open windows and high fan speeds are some things that could interfere with MyLink understanding your exact commands. Voice recognition with background noise is challenging, but to help remedy this, close all windows and reduce the fan speed to a minimum when you try your voice command. If this still doesn’t work, it may be because you’re speaking too soon. Wait for the beep and pause a second before saying your command. This gives the microphone time to open and prepare itself to receive the speech signal.
Because of our speech patterns, sometimes we tend to run a string of numbers together, so they may not be as clear as they need to be. You can greatly increase the accuracy of the number by slowing down and properly enunciating each number. If this still does not work, you can use the Digit Dial voice command, which allows you to speak numbers one at a time or in groups. For instance, you can say, Digit Dial and MyLink† will instruct you to enter one number at a time. This is the most accurate way of dialing via enhanced voice control.
SiriusXM Travel Link† is included as part of the 3-month SiriusXM Satellite Radio trial period. After the initial trial, SiriusXM Travel Link must be added on to the SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription. Additional fees may apply.
To take advantage of all the features MyLink† has to offer, a smartphone running an iOS®, BlackBerry® or AndroidTM platform is required. Most Bluetooth-enabled phones† are compatible with the MyLink system, but some features may be limited.

While the Chevrolet MyLink† system has highly accurate voice recognition software, it recognizes a list of many commands as well as most names.
