2018 Chevrolet Equinox deep dive into MyLink

Cars
[MUSIC] Welcome to the deep dive of the miling system in the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. I've always liked the miling system, it's across all Chevrolet products and it's super easy to use and there's a ton of functionality. But I want to concentrate on just a few features. [MUSIC] So the first one, let's take a look at Apple CarPlay. I've got my phone connected via wire and, look at that, there's my whole phone. Obviously, I need to return some phone calls, I've got 77 missed calls. Sorry. Sorry, Mom and Dad. But everything that I need is there, text messaging, my phone, my podcasts. It's all there in one convenient location. Now when I move along to navigation, first of all, I've got pinch to zoom quality, plus I can scroll up and down just using my finger on the screen. So it's just like my phone, which is cool. Click on destination, and I've got one box entry there. Look, ice cream is already there for my point of interest. Let's click go. I'm totally gonna go get ice cream at Fat Chance. That sounds awesome. Yes, ice cream. Now, moving along to settings, this is where you can customize your vehicle to your liking. But I really want to spend some time on teen driver. Now this is where you can monitor the driving habits of maybe a new driver that's in your house. So I'm gonna punch in my little PIN number here. So I'm gonna review the report card from the drive over here to the chute, so 57 miles, max speed 85, over speed warnings 18. No forward collision avoidance breaking, that's good. And 50 tailgating alerts. Maybe I'm an aggressive driver, maybe. I can manage my setting like stereo volume. The speed limiter is limited to 85 miles an hour. So that's as fast as a young driver can go. And I've set the speed warning here at 60 miles an hour. So that number doesn't look too bad now, does it? And of course you've got OnStar, which includes a 4G LTE wi-fi hotspot, which is great for working on the go. And start ready. Please see the owner's menu for information about your Wi FI hotspot settings. And one last little thing I want to show you here; on the second page, there is a shop button that allows you to download apps to your my link system, Glims that allows you to share your location with your friends and at your service. That kinda gives you information about any kind of purchases, food, restaurants that you might want to make on your route. Of course, there's a lot more that the MyLink system can do. It's got SiriusXM Satellite Radio, all of the navigation voice controls that you could want. There's even a weather app and traffic alerts. By and large, I really like it, it's on a par with FCA's Uconnect system and that is a high bar to reach indeed. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
