What I've figured out so far is it requires very specific word commands, i.e., to place a call the first command is "Handsfree"; to set up the navigation the command is "navigation". So far it hasn't taken my normal spoken commands like Siri does on the iPhone.
Another tip for ya.... after you say HANDSFREE.... go to the head unit and reduce your MIC VOLUME to about 1/4 to 1/3.... 90% improvement on recognition. Also... you can turn 'her' loudness down as well.
One more.... since you figured out the specific commands... each phone you pair up can have up to 10 speed dials.... Set the speed dials up in the head unit and its a breeze!
