    I dont have the car yet, tomorrow...on mysync they say you can tell the nav a name of a preloaded place like home, but i know how to get home and most places i will want navigation on will be places i am finding out about right then

    do you have to preload a place online inorder to get it voice activated, lets say all of a sudden i want to find out how to get to a place, i am in the explorer, will i have to type in the address or will i be able to speak it?

    Speak it. You say destination POI and then the name of the place like Wal-Mart. Then it will bring up all the walmarts in the aread and you can choose via voice 1 2 3 4...

    Haven't tried that one yet but I'm pretty positive you could speak the address.

    It's actually 4356 Great Pines Drive, Your City. The command to navigate to an address is: "destination street address"

    Just a tip. Speak normally. Don't speak slowly like your talking to someone who doesn't understand english. My wife does this. It's hilarious. Just speak like you normally would.

    This is for climate, not nav. But its a good example of how voice command works: press the button, wait for the ding, say your command.

    This is a great feature, speak the entire address and it usually recognizes and maps it. Huge upgrade over all the other nav systems I've had.
