Valet Mode on 2014 Chevrolet Impala Protects Your Wallet and Your Data

Chevrolet has announced that its 2014 Impala will have an interesting valet mode on vehicles equipped with the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system. This valet mode will provide drivers with a place to lock up small belonging such as smartphones, wallets, and other items behind the systems LCD touchscreen. The items are only accessible when the proper four digit number is entered on the touchscreen.

Entering that correct four digit number will also unlock the data saved inside the infotainment system. When locked, unauthorized people won't be able to access your phone numbers or addresses stored in the infotainment system. The cubbyhole for storing items is located behind the eight-inch screen in the center stack the vehicle.

Chevrolet says that the system is similar to hotel safes and it sounds like a very interesting idea. Chevrolet cleared the space for storage inside the vehicle by moving the infotainment system electronics from behind the touchscreen to a different part of the car.
