Hello! First, about me - I just purchased my second Volvo last week - a used 2006 XC90 2.5t Certified used from a Volvo dealer. It has 53,000 miles on it and I spent 5 months trying to locate the color combination of Ice White exterior and Graphite (black) interior. I found 4 others but they were not well taken care of or had extensive miles on them. My older car was the 1996 850 GLT wagon (White with black leather) and I loved it - it had over 250k miles on it and still runs! (right now it is parked in my driveway until I bear with the emotion of selling it)

My question is this: in the XC90, I have the factory installed bluetooth and it works well.... EXCEPT: the voice command feature - It does not understand my "YES" no matter how loud I say it, no matter how many different ways I say it, if I say it softly, slowly, fast, in French or even in Latin... It is as if it does not hear me. It hears all the other commands, (though "speed dial" is sometimes confused with "redial" It is very frustrating!!!

Does anyone have any ideas how to get the bluetooth to understand my "YES" commands?

Thanks!
Paul

Oh, I forgot to mention that I searched the forum and could not find that anyone else has had the same problem, if I missed the topic previously discussed, I apologize in advance...

The car's BT profile and your Turbo's BT profile aren't talking to each other properly. Remember, BT is still a moving target, what worked on the phones they tried t on when they designed the radio may not work on all phones. And when there's an update to the radio it may work fine on your phone and stop working on your wife's phone.

You can make calls in the car, using the car's audio system. Some people can't. So you're at least mostly ahead of the situation.
