    Default What voice commands do you use most?

    One thing I found irritating was scrolling through the sources on the center stack screen ,to find the one I want (XM, iPod, FM, etc.). I just looked thought the manual and I can say "play front Aux" and my phone will play if it's plugged into the console Aux plug. I'm not sure what it'll play yet because I haven't tried. I see you can also say Tune AM, Tune FM, Tune XM, Tune Pandora. I change stations quite a bit so this will come in very handy.

    What commands are you using to make things easier? Noob to the Volt here. My '13 Accord had voice commands but they were pretty limited.

    The only one I use is "call" and it works about 50% of the time.

    The one I use most is "Tune XM {station}" - works 100% of the time for me. "Tune XM First Wave", "Tune XM BPM", etc...

    Mine is "Shut Up, I know where I'm going."





    But, I'm not talking to the car.
    Science today has been hijacked somewhat by people who put blind faith in the findings of some of the most politically vocal scientists. Science should be thoroughly and continually reviewed, debated, updated -- and contrarian views welcomed! Much of what passes for "science" today is not directly measurable by the "scientific method" but is instead a bed of assumptions based on more assumptions -- highly debatable.

    When driving behind a big rig, I keep trying the "Tractor beam - energize!" command, but it doesn't seem to improve my AER as much as I had hoped. Maybe they'll get it right in Gen 2. The "Force field - engage!" command appears to work pretty well, though. Whenever I see a hottie approaching and give KV that command, they instantly make a 180 and turn around.

    I only use "Call" and it's always "home".

    I too use "call" a lot. But if you push that first of the three round buttons in the headliner (left of the OnStar button, the one with a person in a sitting position), you can say "weather" or "traffic" to that button. That was a fun discovery for me.
