To receive or accept an incoming call:

  • Press the call pickup button on your steering wheel.

To dial or place an outgoing call:

To make a call, at any time you may press the TALK button, wait for the beep, and then say:

  • "CALL" or "DIAL"
  • "CALL" or "DIAL" + the person’s name you want to call. "CALL JOHN SMITH”
  • "CALL" or "DIAL" + the number you want to dial. "CALL 555-1212”

Functions and options using voice recognition:

  1. Say "REDIAL" to call the last contact dialed.
  2. Say "CALL BACK" to call the last person who called you.
  3. Say "GO TO CONTACTS" or "SHOW CONTACTS" to display contact list.
  4. Say "RECENT CALLS" to display call history.


– If the ignition is turned off during a hands-free call, the call is transferred to the mobile phone automatically.

– Practice while vehicle is parked until you are confident you can make a call via the Bluetooth® system. Until you are completely comfortable, make all calls while safely parked, moving only when you can devote your full attention to driving.

– Instructions may vary, depending on your system's version of software.
