    I know this may be difficult to answer, but just interested in your thoughts.

    Currently my iphone4 is connected to my Parrot Bluetooth carkits which is linked in with the car stereo. However when I use voice dialling, it won't recognise my voice, I have to learn in towards the iphone mount to say a name.

    The voice dialing only takes commands from the iPhones own mic and not utilising the mics placed around the car from the Parrot.
    I'm hoping that this is fixed with iOS 5. However I'm on beta 7 and it still not working.

    Your thoughts welcome as I'm sure I'm not the only person who drives thinking Siri would be incredibly useful

    Yeah I would be interested in knowing this as well. I have Ford Sync in my car and would love to be able to use Siri through Sync.

    Check your firmware in the Parrot, and the settings for voice dialing. I had my MKi9200 set to voice dial through the phone, default is for the Parrot to listen to your voice and dial from Parrot memory but there was a setting to "pass through" the voice commands.

    Can't say whether it would work with Siri commands or not.

    Over Bluetooth it should providing as above the settings are correct! It listens over a Bluetooth headset so I don't see why not!

    It should be interesting. I have a BlueAnt s4, and I can say "phone commands", hopefully that will pull up Siri and let me control it from there.

    Did you ever find out if the BlueAnt S4 does work with Siri?

    If I hold the phone dial button on my steering wheel when the iPhone is connected to the car via Bluetooth, then Siri activates and can be used.

    Very useful
