In order to ensure problem-free communication with the voice control function, the following points should be noted:

  1. Speak clearly and at a normal volume. Speak louder when traveling at higher speeds.
  2. Stress voice commands evenly, without long pauses in your speech.
  3. Do not speak when the voice control function is making an announcement.
  4. Reduce disruptive noises by closing the doors, windows and sliding roof.
  5. Only operate the voice control as the driver. This is because the hands-free microphone is directed toward the driver's side.

Adjusting voice control

  1. Short dialog: When this function is activated, the voice output uses short announcement texts.
  2. Help texts: When this function is activated, commands that can be spoken are displayed.

Calling up help

Open visual input help

If the Help texts function is deactivated, the visual input help can be displayed via the icon in the title bar.

  1. Please see chapter "Adjusting voice control" on page 322.

Opening acoustic input help

  1. Voice control is active.

Saying voice commands

In principle, there are three types of voice commands that can be input:

  1. Global voice commands
  2. Generally-valid voice commands
  3. Dialogue-specific voice commands

The voice commands shown are a selection of all the commands available. Where available, the system also recognizes synonyms. For example, instead of Call John Doe, it is also possible to say Phone John Doe or Dial John Doe.

  1. Examples of voice commands from page 324.

Speaking global voice commands
All available voice commands that call up a specific function are global voice commands. Global voice commands can always be used, regardless of the main menu selected. This makes it possible to call up a function directly, without first having to switch to the relevant main menu.

For example, if the NAV main menu is active and the voice command Station 1 is spoken, the selected station is called up.

Examples of global voice commands:

  1. Station 1
  2. Call John Doe
