MT.PLEASANT, Mich. – Isn't it frustrating when you're driving and your phone overheats from streaming music and using your GPS at the same time? Most smartphones have a built in cooling feature that helps prevent this, however, that means that sometimes your phone will just shut off completely. To fight this, Chevrolet has engineered the Active Phone Cooling feature, which is an industry-first feature that cools your phone and keeps it from overheating!
So, how does this work? It is actually quite easy to understand: An air vent connected directly to the car's A/C and ventilation system is directed to the charging bin where the phone rests for wireless charging. This bin sits in the center, under the entertainment system of the vehicle. The system sends cooler air to help lower the smartphone's temperature and can only be turned on manually by the driver.
Several factors can cause or worsen overheating in smartphones like heavy strain on the device's data and graphic processors, high ambient temperatures or simply charging the device. That's why Chevrolet has engineered the Active Phone Cooling feature, which will be available on certain models of the 2016 lineup that include the new Impala, Malibu, Volt and Cruze models that are equipped with wireless charging and Chevrolet MyLink.
