    How do you use the voice feature

    To call someone in your contacts that has two numbers?

    For example John cell and John home?

    You can just say call john home, or call john cell.
    If you just say call john, it will pull up options for that contact and you can choose which one.

    So if I am driving and want to use the voice feature can I just press and hold the magnifying glass?

    when using that feature can you say navigate to john doe (Instead of call john doe) and if his contact address is in your phone it will navigate you there?

    Wow, this is so much better than "Voice Dialer" which I've been using.

    It doesn't seem to find contacts for navigation. If I say just my name, it pulls it up in contacts but there is no way to get to the address. However, if I say, "Navigate to Lucille's restaurant" it pulls up navigation and gives me google search results. Would love to be able to combine them!

    I get the "speak now" message, but it is for Google search. What am I not doing correctly? Thanks

    The Google search that the long hold brings up will also search your phone, though it can be a bit flaky.

    I would love any hints for making it work better...mine is to use "Navigate to" or "Phone" rather than just the name of what you are looking for so that it specifically looks for a place or number.

    For the life of me I can't get it to voice dial my wife's mobile. I've tried:

    "call Julie cell"
    "call Julie's cell"
    "call Julie at cell"
    "call Julie mobile"
    "call Julie's mobile"
    "call Julie at mobile"

    I've also tried adding our last name to all these options. It always pulls up the right person, but only the home number. Seems to work for some other contacts in my list, which is strange.
