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.

- Phone related commands are available only when your phone is connected via Bluetooth®. Make sure your phone is connected via Bluetooth® before you operate phone related voice commands.

- Music play commands, such as Play Artist and Play Album can be used only in USB audio mode.

- Do not speak too slowly or loudly (no loud voice).

- Speak clearly, without pausing between words or numbers.

- 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.

- Close the windows and/or the moonroof to reduce loud noises from outside the vehicle, or turn down the airflow of the climate control system while Bluetooth® Hands-Free is being used.

- Make sure the vents are not directing air up towards the microphone.
