i raised this quastion in another thread but no reply?

i have 2GIS with ML with no voice command? (checked and verified) (dealer rules). i suppose the hardware should be exactly same (i even have the voice button). it is only a matter of software. does any body have an update? if so i will need to order your DVDs and utilize the software with my local map.

Sorry, I don't have a software update. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

not software update, but update on how to have voice command in my car. if i have a confirmation from experts that the hardware is the same, then all i have to do is to search for the same software that you guys are having.

Hello John,

Welcome to the forums. First don't panic, call your dealer and tell them you need to schedule an apt to get the upgraded nav disc. It is a free fix because the original version disc that came in our cars does this.

In the future, you can search specific forums for this topic. Also, go to the stickied stuff up top, and click on the thread which lists all the TSIBs (technical service information bulletins) it's listed there.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Does anyone know if the womans voice can be disabled after you press the voice command button. All I need to hear is the beep. I thought I read that there is a solution in a thread somewhere, but haven't been able to find it again.

Does anyone know how to do this? I thought there was a way, and actually someone had posted it. Been searching for a while, but no luck.

I'll have to check the manual, but I'm pretty sure somewhere in Menu or Info, you can choose to turn audio off, or turn voice guidance off.

is it possible to put mp3's on dvd and play them in the car?

i have mark levinson package in my 350
If memory servers me correctly no, most software for burning DVDs will convert the mp3 to another file format. Which, is neither here nor there if you just want to store more music.

Actually you can burn a DVD as a data disc and store mp3s on as actual mp3... dunno if the system will look for mp3s if you put a DVD in tho. just like you can burn a CD as data with mp3s on it and NOT have it convert them to wavs.

try burning the DVD as a data disc, drag and dro pthe mp3s on there.. and see if it works.

POI Retuarant = "I'm Hungry!" ... no kidding it really works... :cool:
Was just reading a review of the Audi Q5 or Q7 over at Askmen.com and the reviewer was raving about what he said was this amazing new "need based" voice command, like "I'm hungry", "I'm too cold", "I'm low on fuel" etc.

I was like... hey! Lexus already did that years ago!

(tho "I'm too cold" makes you sound like such a complainer...)

Here are some, if not all of the voice activated commands, I believe. Bartkat if you have another document that lists all the commands can you either replace this post or add to it? Personally I find it helpful to carry a cheat sheet in the car, instead of having to seek out "help" to review the list.

Anyway, hope this helps:
