Voice recognition related problems



Solution method

Poor voice recognition

Excessive, slow speech.

Excessive, forceful speech (shouting).

Speaking before the beep sound has ended.

Loud noise

(speaking or noise from outside/ inside vehicle).

Airflow from A/C is blowing against the microphone.

Speaking in off-standard expressions (dialect).

Regarding the causes indicated on the left, be careful with how you speak. In addition, when numbers are spoken in a sequence, recognition ability will improve if no stop is placed between the numbers.

False recognition of numbers

Names in the phonebook are not easily recognized

The Bluetooth® system is under a condition in which recognition is difficult.

By carrying out the following measures, the rate of recognition will improve.

Clear memory from the phonebook which is not used very often.

Avoid shortened names, use full names. (Recognition improves the longer the name is. By not using names such as Mom, Dad, recogni- tion will improve.)

You want to skip guidance

Guidance can be skipped by quickly pressing and releasing the Talk button.

When the Talk button is pressed, voice recognition ends

The Talk button is pressed for too long.

Operate the Talk button as follows:

Press the button and release it within 0.7 seconds to start voice recognition and skip the guidance.

Press the button for longer than

0.7 seconds to turn off voice recognition or end a conversation.

Regarding problems with calls



Solution method

When starting a call, vehicle noise from the other party can be heard

For about three seconds after starting a call, the Bluetooth® unit's Noise Suppression function requires time to adapt to the call environment.

This does not indicate a problem with the device.

The other party cannot be heard or the speaker's voice is quiet

The volume is set at zero or low.

Increase the volume.

Other problems



Solution method

The indication for the remaining battery is different between the vehicle and the device

The indication method is different between the vehicle and the device.

When a call is made from the vehicle, the telephone number is updated in the incoming/outgoing call record but the name does not appear

The number has not been registered into the phonebook.

If the number has been registered into the phonebook, the incoming/outgoing call record is updated by the name in the phonebook when the engine is restarted.

The cell phone does not synchronize with the vehicle regarding the incoming/outgoing call record

Some types of cell phones do not synchronize automatically.

Operate the cell phone for synchronization.
