To activate Siri, press and hold the Voice Command button on your steering wheel for approximately two seconds and when you hear the tone, talk to Siri as you normally would.

This allows you to use Siri while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.

  • To use this feature, your iPhone must support Siri. Refer to your device’s documentation for more information.
  • Local laws may prohibit some or all of the text messaging functions while driving. Check your local road rules before using these functions.
