Holden Barina CDX first in Australia to get Siri Eyes Free Integration

The Holden Barina CDX has become the first car in Australia to offer full Siri Eyes Free Integration. The system allows drivers to interact with their iPhones, via Holden’s MyLink infotainment system, to direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while keeping their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Owners simply connect their iPhone to the MyLink radio via Bluetooth and use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin and end sessions with Siri.

Owners can use Siri Eyes Free mode to make voice-activated, hands-free calls to contacts on their iPhone, listen to, and compose and send an iMessage or text message to a phone number or anyone in saved Contacts and access the calendar to add appointments, among other things.

Initially launched with Stitcher embedded app, additional functionality is now available on the Barina CDX MyLink system. This includes embedded apps for full compatibility for Pandora internet radio, BringGo navigation and TuneIn radio.

Holden MyLink is a premium infotainment system which will become available across a range of Holden vehicles in the coming months. MyLink has been confirmed for the VF Commodore, MY2014 Holden Cruze and forthcoming Holden Malibu.
