Cutting-edge technologies make it more convenient than ever to stay connected while in your vehicle
Your vehicle is more than just a means of getting from point A to point B. Connected technologies allow your vehicle to stand in as the family command center, mobile office and even remote classroom. Whether you’re trying to get more done while on the road or just trying to keep a little more distance in your daily routine, Connected Services*1b can provide the answer. In fact, you might not realize just how useful these features can be until you try them. Here are just a few ways Connected Services can help you “get life done” from inside your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle.
Set Up a Mobile Office or Classroom

Maybe you need to take a video conference call while working from home, but want some peace and quiet away from others in the house. Perhaps your child is doing virtual learning this semester and needs a stable internet connection. Or maybe your home Wi-Fi® is down due to storms or other technical problems, but you’ve still got work to do online. Whatever the reason, your passengers can stay connected thanks to your vehicle’s available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot.*33 You can connect up to seven devices to the hotspot — so the whole family can email, stream, video call and more — and the signal reaches up to 50 feet away from your vehicle.

Pay without Leaving Your Seat
Your vehicle can also help you save time when ordering, reserving and paying for the things you need during your busy day. And, more important than ever now, it provides a contactless way to make those payments. Thanks to the Marketplace app,*24 which is available right from your vehicle’s infotainment system, with a tap on the dash you can pay for gas and activate the pump at more than 32,000 compatible gas stations nationwide. Or, if you don’t have time to make a plan for dinner, you can easily order pizza for the whole family through the Domino’s Pizza app. You can also save time by booking and paying for a parking spot ahead of time through the ParkWhiz app. And if your vehicle needs routine service, you can also schedule that from the myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac In-Vehicle App in your vehicle’s infotainment system. Save time and get more done, all from the comfort and safety of your vehicle.
Empower Your Day
Even if you’re on the go, you can use your voice to help complete your day-to-day tasks, thanks to the convenience and power of available Alexa Built-In.*92 It’s integrated right into compatible vehicles, so you don’t need to plug in your phone. Simply ask Alexa to add an item to your shopping list, or control smart home devices*93 like your lights or garage door opener. You can also ask Alexa to play your favorite playlist from Amazon Music or Spotify, or for directions to a destination. With those and many other features, Alexa Built-In helps you get through the day just a little more easily.
Stay Informed

Spending a lot of time in the car doesn’t mean you can’t stay up to date with what’s going on in the world. In-Vehicle Apps,*25 such as The New York Times*53 and The Washington Post,*48 allow you to listen to the latest headlines from around the country and around the world. You can also use the Audiobooks app to learn something new — or just unwind with a fun novel — behind the wheel.
