Just curious if its possible to watch videos on the mylink system. I know on older gm models you could hack the unit and it was possible. So are there any way to play videos via cd or other methods ???

If it is possible it would only be enabled when not driving...I'll try tomorrow when I pickup my new Cruze:)

Found this on a web site. It looks like it depends on what manufacturer/country/etc.MyLink enables:
  • The caller to choose a name from the stored directory, touch the call function and project the call through the vehicle speakers, thereby obviating the cumbersome process of having to manually dial a number
  • Easy access to personal playlists, photo galleries, phone books, other stored media and data
  • Playback of videos and personalized slide shows when the car is stationary
  • Customers to download special apps such as navigation

I heard from an employee of GM that YES you can play movies, but you need to copy a file to device to "unlock" these feature. He declined to give more information. Anyone have more information about that ?

I know this is an old thread, however, I found something in a Vauhaull IntelliLink manual about a 4 port AUX jack for video playback....

Might be worth plugging one in and see what happens. I think that's pretty common for iPods and video cameras.

I own a 2013 Chevy Spark with the MyLink system which is the as other Chevy cars. I found a way to override the video disable when the car is moving. Open the MyLink cover and find a green wire that's part of the main wire harness. I cut that wire an connected to longer wires from those green wires to a toggle switch that allows me to open and close the circuit. When you open the circuit (cut the feed) you can view MP4 and MPG videos while moving but you loose the outside temperature reading. If you turn off your car, it will also drain your battery. When you close the circuit and restart your engine, you'll regain the outside temperature reading and everything will work like it did when you got the car.

If you want to see a map, you can download map images in JPG formats to a USB drive (in JPG format) that you can open and view them on your MyLink screen. I have a "map" folder on my USB with over a dozen map images that I periodically refer to when I am not sure of where I am on the road.

Your MyLink 2.0 is different from the one in Cruze.
