How to speak numbers:
NISSAN Voice Recognition requires a certain
way to speak numbers when giving voice
commands. Refer to the following examples.
Only single digits 0 (zero) to 9 can be used. (For
example, if you would like to say 500, “five zero
zero” can be used, but “five hundred” cannot.)
— “One eight zero zero six six two six two
Improving Recognition of Phone numbers
You can improve the recognition of phone
numbers by saying the phone number in three
groups of numbers. For example, when you try to
call 800-662-6200, say “eight zero zero” first,
and the system will then ask you for the next
three digits. Then, say “six six two”. After
recognition, the system will then ask for the last
four digits. Say, “six two zero zero”. Using this
method of phone digit entry can improve
When speaking a house number, speak the
number “0” as “zero”. If the letter “o (Oh)” is
included in the house number, it will not be
recognized as the number “0 (zero)” even if you
speak “oh” instead of “zero”. Please speak“zero” for the number “0 (zero)”, “oh” for
the letter “o (oh)”.
Send digits using dial tone:
. Press the TALK
switch during a phone
. The menu will be launched and you will be
provided with the following guidance:
"Please say the digits to dial".
. After guidance, say the digits of the number
you want to send. After this, the digits that
have been recognized will be read out.
. If you press the ENTER button on the
steering wheel or on the multi-function
controller, the selected digits will be sent.
