Hands-free calls, navigation, music.

Just push a button on the steering wheel and your Hyundai will follow your spoken commands: call anyone in your contacts, navigate to any destination, or play whatever you want to listen to.

    Tell your Hyundai where to go.

    Navigate to a specific address, search for points of interest (categories work, too), or select a previous destination. You can also say "home" or "office" if that's where you are going. Tell the system when to start, pause, or resume navigation and ask it, how far and long you still have to go.

How to start voice recognition in your car.

  1. Icon of a person talking.

    Press the button on the steering wheel.

    Quickly push and release the button.

  2. Icon of a microphone.

    Say what you want your Hyundai to do.

    "Call", "Play" or "Find": You can find the complete list of commands below.

  3. Checkmark icon.

    Enjoy your ride.

    Focus on the road without having to look at or touch any instruments.

    Your voice is your Hyundai's command.

    There are “Global Commands” and “Local Commands”: Global commands can be used immediately after pushing the button on the steering wheel. Local commands can be used within a specific state. For example, you can say "Music" after you activated voice, but "Play" only works after "Music".

    Your phone must be connected via Bluetooth.

    To call people on your contact list, that list must be synced (up to 5,000 contacts can be downloaded).

    It may take some time for that list to be completely available for voice recognition, depending on the size of the list.

    All phone commands are global, meaning that they can be used immediately after you activated voice recognition on the steering wheel.


    Downloaded contacts are displayed on the screen. Say a name out loud to call your contact.

    Call <Name>

    You can directly call any contact in the downloaded list. For example: “Call John Smith”

    Call <Name> on mobile / at work / at home / on other

    If you have saved more than one number for a contact, you can specify which one you want to call. For example:  “Call John Smith at Work" or "Call Theresa Miller at home"

    Dial number

    This command will call up the dial number screen and wait for you to say the number to call. 

    Dial <Phone #>

    You can also say the number you want to call, immediately. For example: “Dial one two three four five six seven eight nine zero”

    Change Bluetooth Device

    Say this command to connect with another phone. It will bring up the Bluetooth connections screen.

    For faster service, search covers the state or province your car is currently in. If you want to search locations in another state, say the name of state/province and then say the address. 

    Search address

    To find and navigate to an address, say “City > Street > House number” (in that order, excluding the country). e.g. "London, Eresby Place, 32 (three two)." The result will be set as the navigation destination. 

    Find POI

    Find the nearest points of interest. After saying this command, follow the step-by-step instructions to find a specific location.

    Finds all category matches and sorts them by proximity to your current location. You can find a list of all available categories in the Navigation Web Manual.
