    I know Apple announced the siri Eyes Free capability would be coming within the 12 months, but a forum member posted in the "all the little things" thread stating that Siri works through his BMW bluetooth.

    Has anyone tried to see if this works for them? That would be amazing if there were already a bunch of cars capable of this (although it would be shocking that Apple wouldn't have mentioned that).

    What I want to know is how does it know the difference between speaking to the navigation in the car and the navigation in iOS? Do you have to say who you want to talk to i.e. Car or Siri?

    siri on my 5.1.1 works in my mazda3 2012 bluetooth..
    any car with a microphone and bluetooth will work with siri. you just have to activate siri with your phone

    the eyes free is them working with manufacturers to have a dedicated button i think

    She has worked through my 2012 Elantras Bluetooth since day one, unless of course you mean by use of the steering wheel button which she does not. You have to hold the home button down.


    I'd kill for Siri to work through the dock connector. :eek:

    So you're saying after you activate Siri on the phone you will speak through the car mic and hear siri through the car speakers as opposed to using the iPhone mic and speakers? That's ok I guess, but it would be far better if you didn't have to get your phone out. Well I suppose if it does use the car mic you only need to stick your hand in your pocket to activate. That would be good.

    Although one thing I have noticed (at least with my bluetooth system). Whenever I use my tomtom GPS connected to my car speakers through bluetooth there is always a "fade in" where I miss the first word or two of what is said. That would be kind of annoying

    ----------

    I only have an iPhone 4, but later today I'll try testing if voice recognition goes through the in car mic when I activate it...

    Another note, she comes through the speakers but it's ultra LQ sounding. iOS 5 and 6 beta 1.

    Is there any way to enable the screen so the screen DOES show info? Maybe there is an option to show this?

    Sometimes in traffic i'd like to confirm things visually
