BMW announces new voice-control system


BMW says its in-car navigation and audio technology will make life easier for drivers, thanks to new voice controls

The technology has been designed so that your voice command will load your destination into the navigation system, with a simple verbal statement specifying the place, street and street number.

The voice recognition system will not only work with the navigation unit, it will also allow you to find and select music to play, right down to individual song titles.

BMW says the system monitors and interprets the user’s voice commands for the type of music, the name of the article, an album or an individual title, through an optimised and user-friendly range of voice commands.

The new navigation and audio select system will be launched in Germany later this year, with New Zealand following soon after.
