    The online manual is lacking i.r.t. all voice commands available. Is there a master list kept somewhere? If not, can we start one here? :-D

    Edit:
    Since people aren't aware of one, I assume it doesn't exist and I just volunteered myself :tonguewink:

    Play "song" by "artist"
    Navigate to "home"
    Navigate to "work"
    Navigate to "location name"
    Navigate to "address"
    Call "### ### ####"
    Call "Person" "Device Type"

    There's a running start ;)

    How strict does the language need to be? IE, instead of “navigate to...” can you say “go to..” or “we are going home” or “let’s go to...” or “Where is a coffeehouse” ? In other words, how AI-ish is it?

    :) I guess I'm asking for some sort of master page/document listing all known commands by category vs. a long forum thread where people chime in and it's hard to read. Something like this for Alexa:
    https://www.cnet.com/how-to/amazon-echo-the-complete-list-of-alexa-commands/

    If one doesn't exist, can we start one here? Where should it go Trevor? Should it be a Google Sheet so all can contribute?

    I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

    I’ll try to test this out. I have gravitated toward what I knew worked.

    Ok, but you should still edit the first post in this thread and add the links there for people to find them.

    What have people found to be the issue when the voice just doesn't work for SOME things.

    For example, I say "take me to Napa, CA" it reads it out on the screen correctly, does nothing "try again"
    "directions to Napa, CA". Again, reads is correctly but does nothing.
    "route to Napa, CA" same thing
    "get directions to Napa, CA", same thing, nothing. RETRY.

    Sometimes I can say "NAPA, CA", and it does directions.

    Is this the way it is supposed to work? I've tried the two button hold screen reboot several times.

    It will do things for example "play CNN", or "play Dave Matthews", and that seems to work.

    Directions, routing with the above commands, really nearly NEVER.

    Odd the voice commands for navigation always work for me even if the box that pops up completely butchers what I said.

    I’ve found it only likes certain trigger words. “Directions” doesn’t work but “navigate” does for me.
    Edit: here's what the manual says:
    To search for, or navigate to, a location, say "Where is", "Drive to", or "Navigate to", followed by an address, business name, business category, or landmark. For example, "Where is Stanford University?", "Drive to Tesla in Palo Alto", or "Navigate to Starbucks on Homestead in Cupertino".
