Activating the system

Activating the system  - Getting started - Cell phone voice control - Infotainment - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

Before any phone voice commands can be used, a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone must be paired with the infotainment system. If a phone command is given, the system will inform you If there is no cell phone paired. See page 233 for information on pairing a cell phone.

Press the voice control button (1 in the illustration) to activate the system and initiate a command dialogue. The system will display commonly used commands on the screen when the button has been pressed.

While using the voice control system, keep the following points in mind:

  • When giving commands, speak at your usual speed and in a normal tone of voice after the tone
  • The vehicle's doors, windows and moonroof should be closed when using the voice control system
  • Avoid background noises in the cabin when using the system

NOTE NOTE

If you are uncertain of the commands that you can use, saying "help" will prompt the system to provide a number of commands that can be used in a specific situation. Voice control commands can be cancelled by:

  • Saying "cancel"
  • Not speaking
  • Pressing and holding the voice control button
  • Pressing EXIT or one of the mode buttons (RADIO, MEDIA, etc.).
