Confirmation prompts are short questions the system asks when it is not sure of your request or when there are multiple possible responses to your request. (For example, the system may ask Phone, is that correct?) If turned off, the system simply makes a best guess as to what you requested and you may still occasionally be asked to confirm settings.

The system creates candidate lists when it has the same confidence level of several options based on your voice command. When turned on, you may be prompted with as many as four possibilities for clarification.

For example, Say 1 after the tone to call John Doe at home. Say 2 after the tone to call Johnny Doe on mobile. Say 3 after the tone to call Jane Doe at home. Or, Say 1 after the tone to play John Doe, Say 2 after the tone to play Johnny Doe.

Helpful Hints


Helpful Hints

Make sure the interior of the vehicle is as quiet as possible. Wind noise from open windows and road vibrations may prevent the system from correctly recognizing spoken commands.

After pressing the voice icon, wait until after the tone sounds and Listening appears before saying a command. Any command spoken prior to this does not register with the system.

Speak naturally, without long pauses between words.

At any time you can interrupt the system while it is speaking by pressing the voice icon.
