Giving voice commands

To operate NISSAN Voice Recognition, press and release the steering wheel. After the tone sounds, speak a button located on the steering wheel. After the tone sounds, speak a command.

The command given is picked up by the microphone, and voice feedback is given when the command is accepted.

● If you need to hear the available commands for the current menu again, say “Help” and the system will repeat them.

● If a command is not recognized, the system announces, “Command not recognized.

Please try again.” Repeat the command in a clear voice.

● If you want to go back to the previous command, you can say “Go back” or “Correction” any time the system is waiting for a response.

● You can cancel a command when the system is waiting for a response by saying, “Cancel” or “Quit.” The system announces “Cancel” and ends the VR session. You can also press and hold the steering wheel for 5 seconds at any time to button on the steering wheel for 5 seconds at any time to end the VR session. Whenever the VR session is cancelled, a double beep is played to indicate you have exited the system.

● If you want to adjust the volume of the voice feedback, press the volume control switches (+ or -) on the steering wheel while being provided with feedback. You can also use the radio volume control knob.

● In most cases you can interrupt the voice feedback to speak the next command by pressing the wheel. button on the steering wheel.

● To use the system faster, you may speak the second level commands with the main menu command on the main menu. For example, press the say, “Call Redial.” button and after the tone say, “Call Redial.”


The combined command of Call and (a Name) cannot be used.

How to say numbers

NISSAN Voice Recognition requires a certain way to speak numbers in voice commands. Refer to the following rules and examples.

● Either “zero” or “oh” can be used for “0”.

Example: 1-800-662-6200
– “One eight oh oh six six two six two oh oh”, or
– “One eight zero zero six six two six two oh oh”
● Words can be used for the first 4 digits places only.
Example: 1-800-662-6200
– “One eight hundred six six two six two oh oh”,
– NOT “One eight hundred six six two sixty two hundred,” and
– NOT “One eight oh oh six six two sixty two hundred”
● Numbers can be spoken in small groups.
The system will prompt you to continue entering digits, if desired.
Example: 1-800-662-6200
– “One eight zero zero”
The system repeats the numbers and prompts you to enter more.
– “six six two”
The system repeats the numbers and prompts you to enter more.
– “six two zero zero”
● Say “pound” for “#”. Say “star” for “*” (available when using the “Special number” command and the “Send” command during a call).
See “List of voice commands” and “Special number” in this section for more information.
Example: 1-555-1212 *123
– “One five five five one two one two star one two three”
● Say “plus” for “+” (available only when using the “Special Dialing” command).
● Say “pause” for a 2-second pause (available only when storing a phone book number).


For best results, say phone numbers as single digits.

The voice command “Help” is available at any time. Please use the “Help” command to get information on how to use the system.
