Voice Control Operation

Features

Voice Control Operation

Your vehicle has a voice control system that allows hands-free operation.
The voice control system uses the 

 (Talk) and 

 (hang-up/back) buttons on the 

steering wheel and a microphone near the map lights on the ceiling.

To achieve optimum voice recognition when using the voice control system:
• Make sure the correct screen is displayed for the voice command that you are 

using.
The system recognizes only certain commands.
Available navigation commands.

Voice Portal Screen P. 247

• Close the windows.
• Adjust the dashboard and side vents so air does not blow onto the microphone 

on the ceiling.

• Speak clearly in a clear, natural speaking voice without pausing between words.
• Reduce any background noise if possible. The system may misinterpret your 

command if more than one person is speaking at the same time.
