Voice Control covered in separate manual?

My '08 E350 has the voice control feature. I can't find much documentation on how to use it, in the main owners manual it says "refer to Voice Control User Guide". I can't find it in the Command book either.

The dealer is stumped and can't come up with a book either (surprisingly) and said they could not find anything online through their sources. Even the lady at the dealer whose primary role is to cover the car's features with new owners doesn't know, but did show me how to use the "tips" feature in Command.

Anyone have Voice Control and can say for sure if there's a user guide for it?

There is an extensive voice control section in my command user's manual.

I guess the first thing to check would be to ensure that they gave you the right manual. I suppose next you could have them either provide you a manual that has this information or, at the very least, photocopy the relevant pages for you from a command manual that does have it.

Just found this in another thread, but its older. Has functions like "cassette" instead of MP3, etc. No satellite radio, etc.

Thanks for this, very helpful and much appreciated . I've already emailed the salesman based on the other comment that it should be in the Command manual on newer cars to see if he can check some other '08's on the lot, maybe there is more than one version of the manual.

We have totally different cars but I have the feature and in 2001 there was a separate booklet. MBUSA told me it was out of print (bought used and inquired in 2006) so I found mine on eBay. This might have changed but at the time I searched for "voice recognition". It also used to be called "linguatronic". One last thing: mine has a help feature. Pull/push the stalk and say help. It will ask you "Do you need help with radio, CD, phone, etc?"

Thanks, I've messed around with the "help" feature already -- service tech suggested that. I am hoping the salesman can come up with something since they have several '08's on the lot. Hopefully it is something as simple as they gave me a version of Command book w/o Voice, but I'm not sure why MB would bother with two versions- you'd think they would have one and for the Voice section just say "optional equipment" like they do in the main manual. If not, I'll head to Ebay.

My guess is there are two versions because, depending on the car I suppose, originally they had a separate manual for the Voice functions and now they don't, as it has become part of the command manual.

I have a voice manual. Came with my new (used) 2008 E320 Bluetec. Let me know if you are still missing the commands. I could fax them to you

That was a nice offer. But shouldn't you preferably scan it to a pdf, I would assume others could be interested.

I believe this is the list of voice control commands for a W211
MBClub UK Forums - View Single Post - Linguatronic Users
unless they changed to the same set as the CL:

The US CL manual has voice control covered, probably because it would be a standard feature.

Later Comand manuals must have voice control included because voice control is part of the head unit (W211 with NTG2.5 etc.).

I will attempt to scan to a PDF. Travelling for the rest of the week, so it will be next week before I post it.
