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

PIN protection for your wallet and your infotainment system 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.

'67 Chevy Corvair convertible vs. '86 Pontiac Fiero in cult classic showdown

Aug 22 2014 7:13pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Classics, Convertible, Coupe, Videos, Chevrolet, Pontiac Every few a decades, the folks running General Motors lose their minds briefly try to market a car that public doesn't see coming and often aren't ready for. In the '60s there was the rear-engine, air-cooled Chevrolet Corvair, then the mid-engine Pontiac Fiero in the '80s and the completely bizarre Chevy SSR in the 2000s. What all of these had in common was that they bucked the trend for American mode ...

Car seats have an expiry date

I have a confession. I do not know what the movie Frozen is. I am ignorant of the plot line and any of the characters. Heck, I don’t even know whether it’s animated or not. I assume it is as “Frozen” seems to be on the lips of every child in the first decade of his or her life. The DVD version of this movie is also a desirable product to have as parents of said children. Especially now that summer roa ...

Vancouver car voted one of top 10 customs in 1963

Aug 22 2014 6:15pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Car Craft magazine was one of the bibles for the rapidly escalating interest in car customizing when, in 1963, it published a special edition identifying the 10 best custom cars for 1963. This was at the peak of the car customizing craze that swept North America with owners transforming their rides into moving art and sculpture. The synergy of vision, opportunity and skills required to turn a mental picture into moving metal art is rare. Only a few achieve internation ...

Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Japan, Videos, Chevrolet, Mitsubishi The '80s is just far enough away now that it no longer seems like an era defined by Reagonomics and neon clothing. Filmmaker Matt Clark has embraced the look of the music videos of the decade in his new short film titled Orange Orchid, set in 1987 in Chiba and Yokohama, Japan. The video features some great sports coupes of the time and is set to the song I Know Th ...
