Nissan Maxima: NISSAN Voice Recognition System (if so equipped)
NISSAN Voice Recognition allows hands-free operation of the systems equipped on this vehicle, such as phone and vehicle information.
There are two voice recognition modes of operation available. They are:
- Standard Mode; - Alternate Command Mode.
In Standard Mode (the factory default setting), commands that are available are always shown on the display and announced by the system. You can complete your desired operation by simply following the prompts given by the system. Not all NISSAN Voice Recognition options are available while in Standard Mode.
For advanced operation, you can change to an Alternate Command Mode that enables the operation of the display, audio, and climate control through NISSAN Voice Recognition. When this mode is active, an expanded list of commands can be spoken after pushing the TALK switch on the steering wheel, and the voice command menu prompts are turned off.
In Alternate Command Mode the recognition success rate may be affected because the number of available commands and the ways of speaking each command are increased. See NISSAN Voice Recognition Alternate Command Mode in this section.
To improve the recognition success rate when Alternate Command Mode is active, try using the Speaker Adaptation Function available in that mode. See Speaker Adaptation Function in this section. Otherwise, it is recommended that Alternate Command Mode be turned off and Standard Mode be used for the best recognition performance.
While using the NISSAN Voice Recognition system for certain Phone and Navigation features, you can switch to using manual controls (touchscreen, NISSAN controller, steering wheel controls) and the information you have already entered by voice control will be retained. To switch to manual controls, select the Manual Controls key on the display when it appears. The system will respond by speaking Changing to manual operation. Please use manual controls to continue.
For the voice commands for the navigation system, refer to the Navigation System Owners Manual of your vehicle.
For vehicles in the U.S., the factory default setting is the Standard Mode. See Standard Mode in this section. For vehicles in Canada, the factory default setting is the Alternate Command Mode.
