Principle of operation

Voice recognition enables operation of the audio system without the need to divert your attention from the road ahead in order to change settings, or receive feedback from the system.

Whenever you issue one of the defined commands with the system active, the voice recognition system converts your command into a control signal for the audio system. Your inputs take the form of dialogues or commands. You are guided through these dialogues by announcements or questions.

Please familiarise yourself with the functions of the audio system before using voice recognition.

Note: If the Bluetooth and voice control is used for an extended period of time when the vehicle is stationary, make sure that the engine is running to avoid draining the battery.

Supported commands

The voice control system allows you to control the following vehicle functions: Х phone.

Х radio.

Х CD Player.

Х climate control.

Х navigation system.

Note: The voice control system is language specific. If you require the system to operate in another language please consult your dealer.

System response

As you work through a voice session the system will prompt you with a beep tone each time the system is ready to proceed.

Do not try to give any commands until the beep tone has been heard. The voice control system will repeat each spoken command back to you.

If you are not sure how to continue say "HELP" for assistance or "CANCEL" if you do not wish to continue.

The "HELP" function provides only a subset of the available voice commands.

Detailed explanations of all possible voice commands can be found on the following pages.

Voice commands

All voice commands should be given using a natural speaking voice, as if speaking to a passenger or on the phone. Your voice level should be dependant on the surrounding noise level inside or outside the vehicle but do not shout.

Name tag

The name tag functionality can support the phone, audio and navigation features by using the "STORE NAME" function.

Х Store up to 20 name tags per function.

Х The average recording time for each name tag is approximately 2-3 seconds.
