Can You Update MyLink With a USB?

If you drive an older Chevy with early incarnations of Chevy MyLink, you may stumble upon old forums that tell you that you can perform a Chevy MyLink update with USB. Long ago, you could download Chevy MyLink software updates onto a USB and plug it into your infotainment system. This hasn’t been the case for a very long time. Rather, you’ll want to take your Chevy vehicle into our garage, so our technicians can perform the Chevy MyLink update for you.

How Do I Update Infotainment 3?

If you’re driving a newer Chevrolet, and you’re wondering how you can perform a Chevrolet MyLink update but can’t find Chevrolet MyLink, that’s because your car features an Infotainment 3 system instead. Unlike a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment update, Infotainment 3 will require your participation:

  • Connect Infotainment 3 to WiFi.
  • The update will trigger. You can drive around while Infotainment 3 is downloading the update.
  • Once it’s downloaded, your vehicle will prompt you to install the update the next time you park. Installing usually takes 20 minutes.

How Do I Set Up Infotainment 3 with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto?

To sync your iPhone to your Infotainment 3 system via Apple CarPlay, simply:

  • Put your vehicle in park.
  • Connect your iPhone to a USB data port.
  • The Apple CarPlay® Icon will light up.
  • The first time connecting, you’ll need to accept the terms of service.

What is the MyChevy App?

Your Chevy MyLink/Infotainment 3 system features a long list of Chevy MyLink apps, one of which is your MyChevy app. This app connects your phone to your vehicle, allowing you to remotely lock/unlock your doors, start your vehicle, adjust climate settings, and monitor vehicle information, including location. You can also view fuel levels, and if you drive an EV, your battery charge. Bear in mind that the app is only compatible with Chevy models that were built in 2010 and up!
