Amazing experience, great way to learn and get to know your car, especially in this mid-engine layout, and then here you get basically condensed versions of the owner's manual. One of them will be the performance features and this is basically learning how to use all of these things in your new Corvette. They go through all the different

screens

Now the first thing you will notice as soon as you get into a 2021 corvette and start the car, if you don't have your seat belt on it will remind you and you won't be able to start it, you won't go anywhere. 20 seconds, that's the buckle to drive feature that's new for 2021.

It's basically a friendly reminder when you get in the car, fasten your seat belt and then you can immediately put it in gear if you don't like this feature. Yes, you can turn it off. go to the home screen here of your infotainment system and press

settings

, go to the vehicle tab in the top right corner and just above it is the drive button and you can disable that function by simply tapping on it like this with the new Corvettes are coming of the model year. I'm always a little nosy. I walk in and look at everything around me.
All switches. All buttons. Some of the different screens. I have some new things to show you right here. Look down and over here. I didn't really notice any major changes, even the front riser and front camera buttons look the same. Remember that on your front lift, when you press this, it will raise the vehicle, but if your doors open and you're going to hit your front left it doesn't work, you can see that message appear on the screen. The other thing is that if you actually raise the vehicle, it's now raising because I pressed that button and you forget to lower it once you hit 24 miles per hour. will go down on its own now something that is the same for 2020 and 2021 - the dash screen is already set up from chevy and linked to driving mode so when you turn the mode selector the dash screens will change right now we are in Touring Mode, if I go to the right and go to Sport, I can see the dash screen change, turn it one more time to Track mode, now it doesn't turn and pass like it did in C7, so you have to go back to the left Sport Touring and there's my mode and there's weather mode.
You can see those screens basically change the data there on the left side. Now don't forget about one of my favorite buttons, which is the z mode button on the left side. from your steering wheel and there are some new features on the 2021 corvette c8, when you first press it you get your own screen for z mode, but look at the message on the right side. Z mode is active if you press it. Again you will go directly to ptm, which stands for performance traction management, so when you press it again, you are now in ptm.
By turning the mode dial, you can adjust those

settings

within the computer, all kinds of unique settings that are great for different breeds. situations your driving situations your driving ability check your owner's manual to see what all these settings are so you choose the right one that suits the driving scenario you are in also your driving ability excellent feature good quick way to hit that ptm now press this twice within z mode and use its mode selector to review the different settings within the driver information center. Now speaking of driver customization, go back to the home screen, go into settings, this is new for 2021, go into the vehicle tab, you have a driving mode customization, we don't have that in 2020. here's how go now you still go into the vehicle tab of the settings button and then they have a separate z mode and the my mode button when you tap them on the right here you just tap it and then you decide where you want to go with it that's how it is in 2021 and we're back in the 2021 corvette c8 so hit drive mode customization, that's where the z mode and mi mode buttons are.
They are and when you tap on them, you get a good view of this new screen that they have for 2021. just tap on this and it changes the steering feel, it changes the suspension ptm is idle and it tells you when you're playing with this. stuff, here's the engine shift, how do you want to do that brake feel, oh, you better apply the shifts going too fast and you actually have ptm settings here now or you can do it in z mode like we were showing you, let's go back to my mode. Same thing, nice screens, different colors, very well done for 2021, guys, now wait a minute, what is this new button here?
Let's turn it on and check it. Basically what it does is it allows you to see all those screens that we're seeing in z mode. and my mode, when you have this display feature on as you go through the mode selector, it will show you what all your settings are in each mode that you're in, there's the sport mode setting, there's the track mode setting, tour mode settings my mode settings and climate mode you can change all these things, all new for the 2021 corvette c8, this is cool, I like the graphics, I like the ease of operation, I like the colors, really cool guys, so if you want to see all that. screen, make sure this feature is activated here and you can access it through the drive mode customization button.
Then, as always, I'm playing with all the other buttons here and didn't really see any other changes to speak of. Another new feature for the 2021 Corvette is wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Now in 2020 we already have wireless charging, so when your phone is there, this icon will have a lightning bolt that will let you know that it is charging like this right there, but first. Let's sync the phone, I'll show you a quick demo of the wireless Apple Carplay feature. Okay, we're not plugged in and we're connected to Carplay. Let's send a quick text to Ryan Conte.
What do you mean? Good morning. Dude dad is still filming for today's load do you think the cleveland browns are going to win today? your message to ryan conte says good morning buddy dad is still filming for today's load do you think the cleveland browns are going to win today? ready to ship yes ok Now I'll be surprised if it actually responds but you get the gist of how to use wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Great new feature for the 2021 Corvette C8. Now there's a little change to your radio station, so we'll show you what it looks like. when you change the radio in your corvette 2020 and then we will go back to 2021.
So here in 2020, as you scroll, you can see that you get a description of the station number that you are listening to, maybe the title of the artist, you have a direct tune button on xm radio, these are some of the changes for 2021. And just another small change is when you go into the audio tab and how you watch your radio stations, you have an HD radio button here Now you can still change am fm list, let's get into that category so you can press pop or all categories, okay, note that in FM you have a tune button so you can tune directly, okay, you also have it in xm for the 2020s, but when I go to the band xm not anymore. have the tune button and notice that you now have some new graphics on the artist you are listening to and as you go through the channels notice these changes and it gives you a description of each channel and then you can scroll through. they're like that that's cool now if you're listening to country music it gives you a related button so you can listen to other channels that are related to what you're listening to and then they come up like this you can scroll through and watch some of the ones maybe don't know, it's quite interesting classic vinyl-related content and there's 70s bridge, 80s and 70s rock, which is pretty cool, uh, and I love the graphics again.
New graphics for the 2021 corvette. Wow, I'm sorry I did that now. The only problem I see with that phone holder there where it does wireless charging and now wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto for 2021 is that you forget your phone and leave it there like I just did and yes, we are the channel. In case you've heard of it, yeah, I'm the guy who counted every Corvette emblem on the Corvette C8 coupe and this panel right here where your phone rests, there are over 3,000 Corvette logos, that's right, some of the fun and wacky things we have.
I'd love to share with you right here on our Corvette channel. It seems we are empty. I guess the show is over. Yes, that will be our burden today to have coffee with Conte. I hope you enjoyed talking about some little changes from the 2020 to the 2021 Corvette and I really like that infotainment interface screen with the z mode, the mi mode, when you turn that mode dial you have an idea exactly what you're changing in the car with that beautiful color screen and I think the way they're sharing it now in 2021 makes you feel like you're participating in the driving experience a little more and before anyone asks in the comments below, I guess This is a combination of hardware and software, which means It is not compatible with your 2020 Corvette c8.
