Learning about voice control

Please refer to the notes on operation and road safety on page 6.
The PCM is fully voice controllable (with the exception of the functions in the and menus as well as the various SET menus).
The voice control system is designed so that you can generally say each menu item shown on the display. Exceptions are indicated by an appropriate message on the display of the PCM.

Introduction to operation

The voice control system is activated by pressing the button on the Operating Lever for on-board computer (sports car) or on the stalk for the turn signal, high beam, and headlamp flasher (Cayenne) (please refer to the section "Activating voice control" on page 154). This allows you to operate the PCM without taking your hands from the wheel.
In addition, the voice adaptation function is explained on page 156. This function allows you to individually adapt the voice control system to your voice.

How voice control works
The voice control system recognizes commands or numerical sequences regardless of the respective speaker. It provides acoustic feedback and guides you through the functions.

Operating errors and canceling dialogs
If you give a command that is either incorrect or does not exist, the voice control system responds with the query "Could you repeat that?", after which you can say the command again.
After the second failed attempt, the PCM offers you help. After the third failed attempt, the PCM aborts and terminates the dialog with the announcement "End".
You have the following options for terminating voice control during a dialog:

  • Say the "stop", "quit", "terminate", "end", or "End" commands if the voice control system is awaiting a command.
  • Press any button on the PCM.
    The PCM then executes the function corresponding to the pressed button.
    The only exception to this is the volume control. During Voice Control, you can only use this button to adapt the volume of the announcements, not to terminate a dialog.

Functions of the button on the Operating Lever for on-board computer (sports car) or on the stalk for the turn signal, high beam, and headlamp flasher (Cayenne)
By pressing the button on the Operating Lever for on-board computer (sports car) or on the stalk for the turn signal, high beam, and headlamp flasher (Cayenne) you can:
– terminate a voice control announcement while it is in progress,
– skip to the next part of the announcement in the case of announcements with multiple parts,
– manually cancel a dialog.
The button has no function during a telephone call.
