Voice entries

You can assign so-called voice entries for entries in the phonebook as well as for destinations in your personal destination memory.
These voice entries are intended to make it easier for you to call up people or places with difficult to understand (e.g. foreign) names.
You can assign 20 voice entries each for the phonebook and destination memory.

Please note that the recognition of the voice entries depends on the language currently selected for the voice control system.
Always, therefore, use the language that you wish to use for voice control when creating the voice entries.
If you change the language, the system may no longer reliably recognize the voice entries that you have trained it to recognize in another language.

Basic functions of the voice control system

Activating voice control

You cannot activate the voice control system while you are on a telephone call.

  1. Switch on the ignition and the PCM.
  2. Press the button on the end of the Operating Lever for on-board computer (sports car) or on the stalk for the turn signal, high beam, and headlamp flasher (Cayenne).

    An audible signal sounds after a short time, the voice control system is activated and awaits a spoken command. If you do not say a command, the voice control system prompts you to say something with the announcement "Could you repeat that?".


As soon as the voice control system is activated, you will see one of the following two symbols in the top right corner of the display:

= The voice control system is awaiting a spoken command.

= The voice control system is currently making an announcement.
