Helpful Hints for Speaking Commands

• When multiple commands are available, choose the command that works best for you.

• Words in parentheses are optional. For example, for the command “Tune FM (frequency),” saying “Tune FM 87.7” or “Tune FM” are both valid commands.

• When the command is recognized, the system will either perform the function or ask to confirm the choice.

• When the system does not recognize the command, the system says “pardon.” • If experiencing difficulty with the system recognizing a command, confirm that the command is correct. Try saying the command clearly or wait for a brief moment after the tone.

• Background noise such as a climate control fan positioned on high, open windows, and very loud outside noises, even if the windows are closed, can cause voice commands to be misunderstood.

• The system is able to recognize commands in different languages, such as English, Canadian French, and Spanish.

The system only recognizes commands based on the language selected.

• To increase or decrease the voice volume during a voice recognition session, turn the volume knob of the radio, or press the volume steering wheel control. If the volume is adjusted during a voice recognition session, a Volume bar appears on the screen showing the voice volume level as it is being adjusted. This also changes the volume of the guidance prompts.

• When using navigation commands, take the time to become familiar with the address. Long delays when giving the address can result in the system not recognizing the address or routing to different location than intended.

• When providing the house number portion of the address, the system recognizes both digit format and numerical text. An example would be to say, “3-0-0-0-1” or “Thirty Thousand One.”
• If the system provides destination in another country on several attempts, say the “Change Country” command and say the country of interest. The country default is the United States. To enter a destination in Canada or Mexico, the country will first have to be changed in the system.
