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.

2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition goes dark, looks good

Sep 19 2014 2:54pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, GM, GMC Forget about the so-called sporty Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition. If you want a General Motors pickup with some added style, this one looks like a more cohesive, well-done package to our eyes (though it's also not "sporty," despite GM using that term over and over again). It's called the GMC Sierra Elevation Edition, and it hits dealerships later this year. For its more stylish truck, GMC has fitted the 2015 Sierra Doubl ...

The final big car show weekends of the season usually end with a bang, and such was the case last weekend at the Ocean Park Hot Rod show in South Surrey.

Even a guy from California showed up with cars, in addition to some local carnuts who never go to car shows who showed up with their cars. Ocean Park owner Ron Ford let me get up on the roof to get some stellar photos. A big renovation is underway, and he must have cracked th ...
