Voice Control System
Your vehicle has a voice control system that allows hands-free operation of most of
the navigation system functions. You can also control the audio and climate control
, and make and receive phone calls using Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®.
The voice control system uses the
d (Talk) and J (Hang-Up/Back) buttons on
the steering wheel and a microphone near the map lights on the ceiling.
A “Voice Info” feature provides a tutorial that explains how to use the voice control
2 Voice Help
If the system does not understand a command or you wait too long to give a
command, it responds with “Pardon,” “Please repeat,” or “Would you say again.”
When you give a command, the system generally either repeats the command as a
confirmation or asks you for further information. If you do not wish to hear this
feedback, you can turn it off. However, listening to the feedback will help familiarize
you with the way the system expects commands to be phrased.
2 Basic Settings
If the system cannot perform a command or the command is not appropriate for the
screen you are on, the system beeps.
If the system responds with prompts such as “Please use the touch screen to…” or
“Please use the joystick to…,” the system is asking for input that cannot be
performed using the voice control system.
On character input screens, a list of possible characters is displayed if the system
does not recognize your command.
You can find out which voice commands are available for a particular screen using
d Help command. The system will display and read the list of available
commands to you.
d (Talk) Button

and release the

this prompt and give a command.
