To prevent a deterioration in the voice recognition rate and voice quality, the following points should be observed:

  • The voice recognition cannot be performed while voice guidance or the beep sound is operating. Wait until the voice guidance or the beep sound is finished before saying your commands.
  • Dialects or different wording other than hands-free prompts cannot be recognized by voice recognition. Speak in the wording specified by the voice commands.
  • It is not necessary to face the microphone or approach it. Speak the voice commands while maintaining a safe driving position.
  • Do not speak too slow or too loud.
  • Speak clearly, without pausing between words or numbers.
  • Close the windows and/or the moonroof to reduce loud noises from outside the vehicle, or turn down the airflow of the air-conditioning system while Bluetooth ® Hands-Free is being used.
  • Make sure the vents are not directing air up towards the microphone.

NOTE If the voice recognition performance is not satisfactory.
