2014 SLP Panther Camaro: MyLink Integration Mostly Works
December 18, 2013
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.
The Camaro has manual air-conditioning, and the fan speed dial has markings for I, II and III levels of intensity. But those markings don't correspond to what you see on the MyLink display. Notice here that I've moved the dial a hair past the I marking, and the display is showing that the fan speed is at 4.
It's not a big deal and it in no way impacts the functionality of our SLP-tuned Camaro's air conditioning. It just looks a little weird and reminds you that these two controls weren't originally designed to go together.
