Question Mylink xm weather apps, air-conditioning app, and go go navigation apps

I was wondering if anyone has these apps already or when chevy is going to update the system.

Lastly, is anyone having connectivity issues with bluetooth calling or syncing with pandora?

I believe the navigation radio has an XM weather app. What is an air conditioner app? The MyLink radio will show the air conditioner settings whenever the controls are changed, is that what you mean?
I would love to get the gogo navigation app and see what it is all capable of but all I have seen mention of is it is supposed to be for the Volt and Spark later on.

We haven't had any issues with bluetooth calling or Pandora with our iphone 4s phones.

Check out this link
at about 11:30 minutes he goes into detail about mylink. there is a weather app as well as an air conditioning app displayed. Also there is a navigational app. I heard that mylink is able to upgrade via usb port.

Im guessing this guy got the reviewer model since it has all those apps

At 13:15 he shows off the weather app more. I am confused why those apps are not in the current models.

Oh yea I forgot, I do get that reflection/blinds thing from the back window tint but other cars I've had with window tint have had the same effect so I guess I've become used to it and don't really notice it anymore.

That video shows a navigation radio not a MyLink radio. Look at the buttons on the radio, it is different than ours. It is still touchscreen but it is different than the radio I have and I assume you have too. I like ours better as that one can't do Pandora or Stitcher and it also can't stream bluetooth audio from your phone. The only thing it can use bluetooth for is phone calls.
That navigation isn't the gogo navigation app by the way.

Also I still don't understand you talking about an air conditioner app. Our air conditioner settings appear on the radio screen so it's not really an app. I didn't see any different air conditioner app or controls in that video unless I missed it.

The navigation radio isn't even an option to get anymore which is probably a good thing. I bet some people were pissed after paying the extra $1,000 or whatever it was for that radio then finding out they lose some functionality that the less expensive one had.

Why do you say it's no longer offered? Looks like it's still an option on the build-you-own site. I hope they withdraw it to upgrade it, because then I'd imagine it'd be more likely they re-offer again in the future with mylink integrated into it..

Ahh I see they added it back. It was removed for a while.

You also have to get the leather package too in order to get navigation.
