iPod VOICE CONTROL  
You can navigate your iPod/iPhone music library and change the source/mode  
using the latest in voice recognition technology, allowing you to enjoy a more  
handsfree experience so you can focus on driving.  
The VM9324 is provided with a high quality active microphone for voice  
control. This microphone should be mounted as close to the driver as possible,  
preferably on the visor directly above the driver, for best voice recognition.  
NOTE: Upon initial connection, depending on the number of songs and  
the size of iPod/iPhone storage, the index time (radio retrieving and  
storing song information from the iPod/iPhone for voice control access)  
may require a few minutes to read all the data for a large song collection.  
Future indexing time will be shorter, as the radio will only add to the  
information that has changed since the last index.  
Along with a predefined set of basic voice commands, the iPod voice control  
system can also interpret keywords to determine if you’re searching for a  
particular song or artist.

Basic Voice Operation  
1. To activate the voice control function, touch the PTT button on screen or  
on the remote control (7). The PTT button is located on the left side of  
most screens, but is not present on all screens.  
2. The system displays the voice icon along with the text “Please say your  
command” at the top of the screen.  
3. The system “listens” for a command for 5 seconds.  
4. Speak a command into the microphone within 5 seconds.  
If speech is not detected, the system displays “No speech.”  
If the speech is not recognized, the system displays “Not recognized.”  
If the speech is recognized, the system displays the command at the  
top of the screen and carries out the requested operation.  
5. Repeat previous steps, as necessary.  
NOTE: While we have a very sophisticated voice recognition algorithm in  
the VM9324, voice commands must be spoken clearly and distinctly.  
Outside variables such as wind noise and conversation in the  
automobile may affect the radio's ability to recognize speech commands.  
We advise attempting voice commands with the windows closed.  
Using Natural Speech to Access your iPod/iPhone Music Library  
While in iPod/iPhone mode, you can use natural speech to access the music  
library. The voice control system can recognize keywords and retrieve and  
play the desired song or artist.  
For example, you can say “I’d like to hear some Nirvana” and the system will  
search for Nirvana songs and play them in the order retrieved. You can even  
get more specific and say “How about Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana” and  
the system will search for and play the specified song, provided the the song is  
present in the music library.  
Steering Wheel Control  
The VM9324 offers the option to re-program one of your steering wheel  
controls to operate as the "PTT" (Push To Talk) control on the VM9324,  
allowing for a truly hands-free music management experience. See “SWC  
(Steering Wheel Control) Sub-menu Features” on page 20.
