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.

SUV Review: 2015 Lincoln MKC

Aug 1 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Respect is typically the most sparsely gifted of all human qualities, doled out so infrequently that it makes altruism, charity and benevolence seem as common as the trinkets at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box. Rodney couldn’t get any (no matter how much he made us laugh). Aretha had to spell it out letter by letter that women of her era might finally demand some. And Stephen Harper has been the freakin’ pri ...

Many of you might have seen these pictures already. That’s because they’re incredible, but they’re also very old. These pictures were first posted in 2007 on a Portuguese car forum and then hastily deleted with no information as to where the cars were or why they were left to rot in a barn. These pictures have recently received a second wind of attention and seem to be popping up all over the place with different stories about how the cars came to rest there. Fa ...
