Livio Connect tech will integrate TuneIn app in MyLink Radio for 2013 Chevy Spark

Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 12:35pm

General Motors today announced it will work with both Livio and TuneIn for in-dash Internet radio functionality for 2013 Chevrolet Sparks equipped with MyLink Radio.

Livio's "Livio Connect" technology, used here in the company's first OEM integration with GM, will connect the TuneIn music smartphone app with the MyLink Radio. Livio Connect is a middleware framework protocol that enables hardware devices and mobile apps to connect to and interact with one another.

A press release says all of the TuneIn buttons and controls from the mobile device will be available on MyLink’s seven-inch touch screen, while the app on the phone itself will be disabled to help promote safer driving.
