To ensure smooth communication with voice control, pay attention to the following points:

  1. Speak clearly, distinctly and at normal volume. Speak louder when traveling at a higher speed.
  2. Emphasise voice commands evenly without long pauses.
  3. Do not speak if voice control is giving an announcement.
  4. Reduce disruptive sounds caused by closing doors, windows and sliding roof.
  5. Only the driver should operate voice control, as the hands-free microphone is pointed towards the driver’s side.

Adjusting voice control

  1. Short dialog: With the function active, the voice response involves short announcements.
  2. Help texts: With the function active, commands that can be spoken are displayed.

Calling up help

  1. Press on the control lever (Fig. 308 on page 346).
    A list with sample commands is displayed in the PCM.
  2. Select the icon in the footer of the PCM.
  3. To display sample commands in each main menu, select the icon or sample command of the relevant main menu in the PCM.

If the Help texts function is deactivated, the visual input assistant can be displayed via the icon in the headline.

Calling up acoustic input assistance

  1. Voice control is active.

Saying voice commands

Basically, there are three types of voice commands that can be given:

  1. Global voice commands
  2. General voice commands
  3. Dialog-related voice commands

The displayed voice commands are a selection of all available commands. The system also recognizes synonyms if there are any. For example, instead of saying Call John Doe you can also say Phone Doe or Dial Doe.

  1. Examples of voice commands from Page 348

Saying global voice commands
All available voice commands that call up a specific function are global voice commands. Global voice commands can always be used regardless of the selected main menu. This allows the direct calling up of a function without having to switch to the corresponding main menu beforehand. If, for example, the NAV main menu is active and the voice command Station e.g. Radio station XY is said, the station mentioned is called up.

Examples of global voice commands:

  1. Station e.g. Radio station XY
  2. Call e.g. Doe

Saying general voice commands
General voice commands can be said at any point in the dialog.

Examples of general voice commands:

  1. New entry: Starts voice control again.
  2. Correction: If, for example, a mobile phone number was given in several blocks (e.g. 0711 911), voice command cancels the block given last.
  3. Help: Input assistance with possible voice commands is displayed.
  4. Cancel: The dialog is aborted.

Saying dialog-related voice commands
Dialog-related voice commands are needed as soon as a dialog is conducted with the PCM. For example, these include the following voice commands:

  1. Line 1
  2. Next page/previous page
  3. Yes/No

Use list by voice

Scroll through a list

  • To browse further/back through a list, say Next page/previous page.
    – or –
    Using list via touchscreen or rotary push button.

Saying a list entry
You can say blue list entries. Otherwise, list entries can be called up via the blue line numbers.

  • Say the voice command Line 1.
