Valet Mode Lets 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Owners Breathe Easier

Corvette Valet Mode

Elizabeth City, NC If the thought of handing the keys to your beloved vehicle to a valet attendant is coupled with anxiety, there’s good news: the new Valet Mode feature in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette not only keeps belongings safe, but gives owners a way to keep tabs on their vehicular pride and joy.

“With great power, like that found in the new 2015 Corvette, should come great responsibility,” says Jimmie Ritter from Performance Chevrolet. “Unfortunately, not every ‘parking professional’ entrusted to move your vehicle lives up to that expectation. The new Valet Mode in the 2015 Corvette gives owners additional peace of mind by letting them see what happens once someone else slides behind the wheel.”

The industry-exclusive system allows drivers to lock the interior storage, disable the infotainment system and record video, audio and vehicle data when the Valet Mode is active.

Introduced in 2014, the Corvette Valet Mode is turned on through the settings menu and activated by entering a unique four-digit code. A confirmation entry of the code simultaneously locks the storage bin behind the center stack display, the glove box and turns off the stereo.

With the introduction of the industry-first Performance Data Recorder for 2015, Corvette drivers can also record HD-video, in-car audio, and vehicle data – including speed, engine RPM, gear position and g-force – when Valet Mode is active.

The video can be viewed instantly on the Corvette’s eight-inch color touchscreen when the car is parked, or downloaded to a computer.

The Performance Data Recorder, or PDR, system was developed with Cosworth, the British motorsports-engineering company that supplies the Corvette Racing team’s data acquisition and telemetry electronics systems.

The system includes three major components. First is a 720p, high-definition camera mounted within the windshield header trim, which records the driver’s point-of-view through the window. Audio is recorded via a dedicated microphone in the cabin.

Second is a self-contained telemetry recorder. The system utilizes a dedicated GPS receiver and is hardwired into the Stingray’s Controller Area Network to access vehicle information.

Finally, the system features a dedicated SD-card slot in the glove box for recording and transferring video and vehicle data. An 8-gigabyte card can record approximately 200 minutes of driving time.

Valet mode with the Performance Data Recorder will be available on all 2015 Corvette models. Look for the 2015 Corvette range to arrive at Performance Chevrolet later this year.
