■When using the microphone

  • It is unnecessary to speak directly into the microphone when giving a command.
  • Voice commands may not be recognized if:
    • Spoken too quickly.
    • Spoken at a low or high volume.
    • The roof or windows are open.
    • Passengers are talking while voice commands are spoken.
    • The air conditioning speed is set high.
    • The air conditioning vents are turned towards the microphone.
  • In the following conditions, the system may not recognize the command properly and using voice commands may not be possible:
    • The command is incorrect or unclear. Note that certain words, accents or speech patterns may be difficult for the system to recognize.
    • There is excessive background noise, such as wind noise.

Casual speech recognization

Due to natural language speech recognition technology, this system enables recognition of a command when spoken naturally. However, the system cannot recognize every variation of each command.

In some situations, it is possible to omit the command for the procedure and directly state the desired operation.

Not all voice commands are displayed in the short cut menu.

This function is available in English, Spanish and French.
