With technology nowadays, we don’t usually know absolutely every feature that our phones, computer, or even TVs have. It seems that we’re always finding out about some cool feature long after we’ve gotten the upgraded model. The same is often true of our cars. Today, cars have more technology than ever before, making it incredibly easy to stay connected. We understand that not everyone reads the owner’s manual from cover to cover, so we’ve dug into some cool features that you can find in your 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
Here are just a few of the features you can find in your Impala that you’re going to wish you had known about long ago.
- You can connect multiple USB devices. We’re betting you’ve discovered all three USB ports by now. Have you figured out that once those devices are plugged in, the MyMedia system pulls the media and combines the libraries from all devices into one playlist? You can find two USB ports in the center console and one behind the retractable radio screen. Then all you have to do is push the MyMedia button until you get to the MyMedia input.
- Valet mode. Lock your car down using the Valet mode. You have to create a security code within the settings menu, which when used will activate a secure mode. This will let enable you to secure the multimedia and navigation system, steering-wheel controls, in-dash retractable storage compartment, and private information such as a home address or contacts. So next time you go out for a night on the town, you don’t have to worry about what the valet might find scouting around because they won’t be able to access a single thing.
- Link heated and ventilated seats to remote start. In the settings menu, you’ll find that you can link your heated and ventilated seats to your remote start. So the next time you start your car from the warmth of your house, you’ll find that your seat will be nice and warm too.
