Chevy ad highlights new Siri Eyes-Free feature
posted by Alan F. / Mar 25, 2013, 10:04 PM
As the ad shows, users can check their SMS and iMessages, have the messages read to them, and then dictate a response or a brand new message. Hands-free calls can be made to any contact on the user's device that has a phone number. You can be alerted to your calendar events while using MyLink to connect with Siri to control your iTunes library.
Chevy is just one of nine other automakers planning on bringing out versions of Siri Eyes-Free. Those carmakers include Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota.

That is still waaaaaay too much driver distraction. People need to focus on staying in control of the car they're supposed to be driving and what's happening around them and not listening to their text messages. Ditch the automatic hybrid and drive a car that's engaging like a car with a manual transmission and a turbo.

i understand and agree with what you mean, but this is tech site, you will get hate and dislikes from alot of people who love tech and arent interested in meaning old school and less techy. if there was an option to turn your limps into robotic mechanics these people would do it.

What's the point?? Google Now is way better: you can open the google now interface and just leave it there, anytime you want google to do something, you can voice activate by saying "Google".... You don't even need to push a button!!! lol
