Voice Dial

 

The 1490T has Voice Dial through bluetooth. Does this only work if the cell phone also has voice dial? I have a my phone paired with the 1490T and when I select voice dial on the Garmin I get a blank screen on the Garmin that says Cancel on bottom. No matter what I speak at the Garmin nothing happens - my cell phone does not have voice dial on its own.

Where did you get that info?

The link below doesn't mention anything about voice dialing.

Simply dial numbers with nüvi's touchscreen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap the screen and speak into its built-in microphone. Enjoy convenient one-touch dialing for contacts and points of interest.

Yes, your cell would need to have voice dial for it to work.

On my phone with voice dial

On my phone with voice dial you also have to go into the phone settings to make the change.

I use it.

I use Voice dial on my 1490T. Your phone must support voice dialing. Works just like a bluetooth headset.

It's all about the phone

The Nuvi can't do anything your phone can't. The GPS is just accessing functions and information stored in your phone via Bluetooth.

Maybe it's time for a new phone? They make them now so you don't have to carry a separate battery pack around. wink
