Greetings,I have tried voice recognition over 20 times while doing 70 mph. My wife has tried it. We have NEVER got it to recognize an address. I used Bing and it asked for the address but NEVER came close to what we were saying.
We were very pleased with the ride, handling, and quiet ride. The Advanced Tech Group was outstanding. So many times we slowly came up behind slower moving vehicles and our GC gradually slowed to maintain a safe distance. It was so smooth that often we didn't realize we had slowed 8 mph. The Blind Spot Warning worked great as well.So how did she drive for this long of a trip at 70mph?
I'm going to have to test this more. I tried on our trip to Long Beach this weekend and it didn't work. The only thing I've been able to get to work is asking it to bring up fuel prices and then I'll manually select and navigate from there.Today, I was doing 75 mph on I-40. The road noise was relatively quiet. I used Voice and said "Navigate To" an street address in another state. It processed it correctly. I was pleasantly surprised and will try it more.
Previous nav units ive used have a vehicle speed sensor wire that if grounded would allow you to use the nav while moving. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the MY14.?Just finished a 7,200 mile trip. Overall, we are extremely happy with our Overland. The looks, ride, handling, and features are excellent.
However, the two most frustrating problems I had were (1) the Nav System / POI screen locking up and (2) the inability to find a destination while moving.
While I was a passenger, I wanted to find a hotel 100 miles ahead. I couldn't figure out how to do it. I had to wait until we stopped or I used my Smartphone or my portable Garmin.
While traveling, I started using my laptop at night to figure out about where we would be the next night. Then, in the morning, I added Favorites for that town and towns closer and further away. While driving, I would Nav to one of these Fav and can ask for a POI - Motel - Near Destination. A lot of work for a passenger who can safely use a keyboard and cannot reach the Voice Command key on the steering wheel.
If anyone can tell me how to use voice command to find a motel in a distant town, please let me know.
