Avoiding Voice Recognition Errors.

Read the notes listed below to allow the Voice Recognition function to recognize your voice properly.

Speak a voice command clearly.

Keep yourself in a safe driving position. Do not face or approach the microphone to make a 
voice command to recognize. 
Voice recognition may fail to recognize your command due to voice tone. If this happens, 
change the tone of your voice by speaking more loudly and clearly.

Keep the inside of the vehicle quiet when making a voice command. Your command may be compromised 
by noises made by people, blinkers, the horn, vehicle vibration, and noises from outside the vehicle.

Use the language you selected in voice recognition.

The following voice commands can be used with voice control.

( ): Indicates the commands to be the object of “/” 
[]: Recognizes without saying the command in “[]”
“/”: Recognizes when saying either commands before and after “/”

You can alter the map display conditions, the route guidance conditions and show the 
system information.

Stop your vehicle before the following operations. 

Do not change the settings and destination locations while driving. Minimize the time 
spent viewing the monitor screen and listening to the voice guidance while driving. 
Operating the system will distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and may 
cause an accident.

Precautions/System Performance

Voice guidance has the following functions:

Intersection guidance

The system voice announces the distance to an upcoming turn and the turning direction.

This guidance function is automatic. Therefore, you do not have to set it, and it cannot be 
disabled.

The system vocally announces the distance to an upcoming highway branching point or 
junction.

Voice Guidance

The navigation system is just a support system for the driver. The driver should 
always pay attention to the traffic situation to safely make decisions. You may 
be unable at times to arrive at your destination due to out-of-date information 
on a map disc. You should be especially careful when selecting an urgent 
destination such as a hospital or a police station.

Your route may sometimes include roads that are not open to vehicles or are 
closed due to traffic regulations. Please comply with the local traffic 
regulations.

Do not change the settings and destination locations while driving. Minimize 
the time spent viewing the monitor screen and listening to the voice guidance 
while driving. Operating the system will distract the driver from looking ahead 
of the vehicle and may cause an accident. Always stop the vehicle in a safe 
location and use the parking brake before operating the system.

When two intersections are close together, the 
voice guidance may be late.

When two roundabouts are close together, the 
voice guidance for the second may be late.

GPS is a position detecting system utilizing the signals 
from GPS satellites deployed by the U.S. Department of 
Defense. The Mobile Navigation System uses input from 
three or more satellites and calculates the vehicle position 
based on the principle of triangulation. 
The positioning accuracy of the system corresponds to the 
error display of the GPS which is from about 30 to 200 meters.

If you are using the system for the first time, or if you have not used it for some time, it takes 
about 5 minutes (or about 2 minutes in open areas) to calculate your vehicle’s position.

GPS signal reception is poor in the following places

The GPS satellites are controlled by the U.S. Defense Department, which may intentionally 
lower positioning accuracy. In such cases, there may be vehicle position deviations.

There may be vehicle position deviations for some time until GPS signals are received after 
turning on the ignition.

This function compares your vehicle’s tracking data with the road data on the map 
disc, applies dead reckoning to determine the road you are driving on, and displays 
your vehicle on that road on the map.

Intelligent map matching addresses the following problems to achieve high accuracy in 
vehicle positioning.

Position Correction for Elevated Roads

Position accuracy is improved by detecting if the vehicle is 
running on or under an elevated road.

Position Correction for Parking Garages

Position accuracy is improved by detecting if the vehicle is 
driving in an elevated or underground parking garage.

High-precision Gyrosensor

A gyro detects turns with an accuracy of 0.05° per second. 
Combined with a speed sensor, it enables the system to 
display the current vehicle position even where GPS signals 
may be blocked.

Using a spare tire in place of the regular one may cause vehicle position deviations.

Any difference between the direction which your vehicle actually travels and that shown on 
the map is automatically eliminated by azimuth correction.

Precautions/System Performance

In the following situations, your vehicle position may not be displayed correctly on the 
map. But, as you keep driving, your vehicle position will be automatically corrected 
utilizing map matching and GPS data.

Although you may encounter the following problems in route guide, there is nothing 
wrong with the system.

Positioning Accuracy

Running on an 
elevated road

Making a turn after 
driving on a long 
straight road

Running on a steep 
mountain road

Running on a spiral 
road

Entering an intersection 
where a road branches 
off at a small angle

Running on gridiron 
layout of roads

Running on a 
slippery road with 
tire chains

Snaking on a wide 
road 

When your vehicle 
is on a turntable 
with the ignition 
turned off

After getting off a 
ferryboat or vehicle 
train

Route Guide

For certain intersection shapes, 
the upcoming turn or the name of 
the intersection may not be 
announced.

For certain intersection shapes, 
you may be prompted to turn right 
or left When you should actually 
stay on the same road.

Voice guidance for the planned 
route may continue even after you 
have deviated from that route 
such as having turned too early.

Some points where the road 
divides on highways or toll roads 
may not be displayed or 
announced.

The Intersection Zoom Map may 
not always agree with the actual 
shape of the intersection.

The announced distance to an 
upcoming turn may differ slightly 
from reality.
