NOTE: Take care to speak into the Voice Interface System as calmly and normally as possible. The ability of the Voice Interface System to recognize user voice commands may be negatively affected by rapid speaking or a raised voice level.

WARNING: Any voice commanded system should be used only in safe driving conditions following local laws and phone use. All attention should be kept on the roadway ahead. Failure to do so may result in an accident causing serious injury or death.

When you press the Voice Commandyoubutton, you will hear a beep. The beep is your signal to give a command.

NOTE: If you do not say a command within a few seconds, the system will present you with a list of options. If you ever wish to interrupt the system while it lists options, press the Voice Commandlistenbutton, listen for the beep, and say your command. Pressing the Voice Commandwhile thebutton while the system is speaking is known as “barging in.” The system will be interrupted, and after the beep, you can add or change commands. This will become helpful once you start to learn the options.

NOTE: At any time, you can say the words “Cancel”, “Help” or “Main Menu”. These commands are universal and can be used from any menu. All other commands can be used depending upon the active application. For example, if you are in the disc menu and you are listening to FM radio, you can speak commands from the disc menu or from the FM radio menu. When using this system, you should speak clearly and at a normal speaking volume. The system will best recognize your speech if the windows are closed, and the heater/air conditioning fan is set to low. At any point, if the system does not recognize one of your commands, you will be prompted to repeat it. To hear the first available Menu, press the Voice Command“Mainbutton and say “Help” or “Main Menu”.
