Can the Model S read texts from my phone?


Nov 26, 2014
I just hold the button on my iPhone and say 'read the text message to me'. It reads the message through the car speakers via Bluetooth. I guess by touching my phone I could get a fine, but it hasn't happened yet. I don't need to look at the phone. It's pretty easy to find the button by touch. Of course you can then reply to the text too, without needing to touch the phone.
