How to Update Chevy MyLink/Infotainment 3 Software

Chevy Teen Driver

Chevy MyLink was Chevrolet’s signature infotainment software, providing Virden and Birtle drivers with in-dash entertainment, car information, and connectivity features. Now MyLink has evolved into Infotainment 3, Chevy’s official new software.

If you’re driving a recent model Chevrolet in Brandon or Moosomin and trying to figure out how to update Chevy MyLink software or Infotainment 3, Virden Mainline Motors has your back. We regularly help our customers troubleshoot Chevy MyLink software updates, as well as issues with their Chevy MyLink apps or the MyChevy app. Read our step-by-step guide, and then, if you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us or consult our hub of guides on all things Chevy.

How to Update Chevy MyLink

If you’ve been trying to figure out how to initiate a Chevy MyLink software update, it’s highly likely that your infotainment system updated itself already. You see, Chevy MyLink updates are performed automatically. If you have a specific reason to believe that your Chevrolet MyLink update hasn’t been self-regulating, then we recommend bringing your vehicle into our service department.

Updating Chevy MyLink Auto to Allow App Access

Now that you know how to update Chevy MyLink, it’s time to figure out how to connect the apps on your smartphone to your infotainment system. Performing this additional Chevy MyLink software update to allow app access is simple. Just follow these steps:

  • Select the phone icon on the home screen of your infotainment system.
  • Select “Pair Devices.”
  • Then go to your smartphone’s Bluetooth menu and select Chevy MyLink.

Now that you know how to perform a Chevrolet MyLink software update, it’s time to take a look at how to perform an Infotainment 3 update.

How to 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 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 next time you park. Installing usually takes 20 minutes.

How to 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!
