Ask via voice control though and it plays music just not what I ask for. Perhaps I need to investigate further as I have not had the car very long.
Iím afraid that I donít store my music on my iPhone. My wife does though, but she mainly uses the Honda and doesnít use its voice control. However she does leave it with Bluetooth set as the source, which drives me potty when I get in the car and it connects and starts playing one of the dozen or so songs that I do have. I immediately switch sources, so I canít help on this one iím Afraid.

Change temperature? How do you get it to change both sides? When I say "temperature whatever" it adjusts the driver's side but not passenger. No attempts at talking the car into adjusting that side works. Aaaagghh!!!

I think the command is "sync temperature."

It is sync temp but you may have to say "synchronise temperature", it also adjusts the rear climate setting if you have 4 zone climate. This is handy when my rear passengers have set the fan on full blast, I can sync it back to my level 3 setting and my temp setting.

Once the temperature is sync'ed voice command will alter both sides until a passenger alters their side again then you will have to re-sync.

I just say ĎIím hot or Iím cold but the dual-zone is wasted on me as itís always the same both sides.

Thank you for your quick replies. "Sychronise temperature". Why didn't I think of that?
I do have more questions but I'll read the content of the pages that cchatss60 has very kindly linked. It took me ages to suss 'clear itinerary' as opposed to 'cancel guidance/navigation/route' followed by a few Anglo-Saxon words when it acknowledged that voice commands were being turned off.

It works for me most of the time but I always expect it to refuse to play properly so when it does I just ignore what she is saying except to throw a few choice words in her direction!

Yesterday I tried 10 times to turn on the climate from the off position. The answer I got was Climate Control Off. It seems that you can do operation of the climate control ONLY when it is on and you can even turn it off, but once it is off, you cannot turn on. Isn't that weird?

Once I turned on manually the climate control, then all commands were executed

A little o/t, but wish they added a "CAMERA ON" command so I don't have to shift to the left screen and click the cam button whenever I'm squeezing through narrow places..
