Thanks to its MyLink entertainment system, the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox can take your incoming text messages and convert them into speech, playing them through the cars audio system. While this is a handy feature when you’re driving in the car by yourself, it could prove to be somewhat embarrassing if you’re riding in the car with someone else and they hear a text that was meant for your eyes only.
That being said, it’s probably not the best idea to turn on MyLink’s Text-to-Voice feature when you’re in the car with your wife and had a bit of a crazy night before. She might hear messages like “Did you ever find your pants?” which of course will require some explaining.
Still, the feature helps you keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road, just be careful which texts you decide to play aloud, or you might have some explaining to do.
