Every late-model vehicle currently on the road has some kind of infotainment system. It's the in-dash computer with touchscreen that lets you access navigation, music or compatible apps. According to the experts on our Genesis of Amherst team, infotainment systems go by different names, but they're all pretty much the same.

Sync vs. UConnect

If you're the type who periodically studies up on auto news, they you know that all of the big auto manufacturers boast their own infotainment systems. In a GM, the system is either MyLink or Intellilink. In a Cadillac, it's CUE, Sync in a Ford and UConnect in a Fiat-Chrysler vehicle.

Touchscreen Capability, Supported Apps

Driver ease and in-cabin comfort are the whole point of infotainment systems. Each system supports compatible apps and even iOS or Android devices via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Touchscreen and haptic vibration response are the norm. Future infotainment screens may operate via driver gesture, requiring no touch-sensitive interface at all.
