The BMW 650i is equipped with a voice command system that allows you to control various functions of the car using voice commands. To use the voice command system, press the “Voice Command” button on the steering wheel or dashboard and then speak your command.
The system will recognize a variety of commands, including commands to make phone calls, adjust the audio system, and navigate to a specific destination. You can also activate the voice command system by saying “Hello BMW” and then speaking your command.
The voice command system allows you to control operation of various vehicle systems without ever removing your hands from the steering wheel. Individual menu items on the Control Display can be spoken as commands.
This frees you of having to use the controller. The voice command system transforms your spoken commands into control signals for the selected systems and provides support in the form of instructions or questions.
The voice command system includes a special microphone. The microphone is located:
> Near the interior rearview mirror in the Coupe,
> On the steering column in the Convertible

> For entries in the voice-activated phone book, only use names in the language of the voice command system and no abbreviations.
