2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Long Indexing Times with Chevy MyLink

June 11, 2014

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

I have about 5,000 songs, a dozen audio books and multiple episodes of sixteen unique podcasts on my iPhone. With that much data, the MyLink system in our long-term 2014 SLP Panther Camaro takes a really long time indexing my music library but what's worse than that though is what happens while I'm waiting for it to compile all that audio.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Climate Control Knobs

February 03, 2014

Chalk the following up under "not a huge issue when you're driving a 600-horsepower muscle car," but I don't like the way the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro's climate control knobs work.

While the knobs are nice and large, and have a grippy surface, they also have super-mushy, undefined detents. So it's easy to move the fan speed or temperature knob 1 1/2 or 2 clicks when you're just trying to go one.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: MyLink Integration Mostly Works

Chevrolet made its MyLink audio-navigation interface available in the Camaro for the 2013 model year, but our long-term 2014 SLP Panther 600 is my first exposure to it. Considering that this is an Australian car that wasn't originally designed to accommodate a modern infotainment system, the integration of MyLink is pretty seamless.

Entering destinations into the navigation system is easy, whether I type them in or use the voice control. Even better, I haven't found the system excessively slow to process commands or prone to glitches. It works as well as the MyLink in our Corvette Stingray.

However, MyLink doesn't perfectly integrate with the Camaro's existing controls. Take the fan speed dial, for example.
