Voice Command

• For best performance, adjust the rearview mirror to provide at least 1⁄2 in (1 cm) gap between the overhead console (if equipped) and the mirror.
• Always wait for the beep before speaking.
• Speak normally, without pausing, just as you would speak to a person sitting a few feet/meters away from you.
• Make sure that no one other than you is speaking during a voice command period.
• Performance is maximized under:
• low-to-medium blower setting,
• low-to-medium vehicle speed,
• low road noise,
• smooth road surface,
• fully closed windows,
• dry weather condition.
• Even though the system is designed for users speaking in North American English, French, and Spanish accents, the system may not always work for some.
• When navigating through an automated system such as voice mail, or when sending a page, before speaking the digit string, make sure to say “Send”.
• Storing names in your favorites phonebook when the vehicle is not in motion is recommended.
• Phonebook (Mobile and Favorites) name recognition rate is optimized when the entries are not similar.
• You can say “O” (letter “O”) for “0” (zero).
• Even though international dialing for most number combinations is supported, some shortcut dialing number combinations may not be supported.
• In a convertible vehicle, system performance may be compromised with the convertible top down.
