Voice Recognition

I have a question regarding voice recognition. My brother has an '06 E90 sedan with i-drive. I swear that I remember him training the i-drive to recognize his voice. I get very frustrated when I try to use the voice recognition and it takes 5 times for it to recognize my command. I can not find any command similar to that in my '07 E92. Am I dreaming here, or has anyone else heard of this? Is there a "learn" command that will help the system to recognize the users voice?

It doesn't learn your voice ... but I just read a stunning tip in one of the other forum threads.

When you use voice control - don't start speaking after the 'beep'. Wait until the speech icon appears in the bottom left hand corner of the idrive display - then speak.

"I'm sorry I didn't understand you" will become a thing of the past.

Man when I read that quote I heard it in the guy's voice - that's sad :P

Nice tip. Also make sure you're speaking audibly and stressing on the letters. I've gotten a better response time from the system when I do instead of it sitting there for a few extra seconds deciphering my words.

If you get the car without iDrive but do get the Assist/Bluetooth option, does the car still have voice recognition? If so, is there an icon (like on the idrive)that appears on the radio to let you know when to speak?

Thanks!

It doesn't have voice/speech recognition because that only comes with the high version of the computer. With the LOW version of the computer, there is a voice label system used only for the phone, but that requires (tedious) individual entries of names and numbers into the car's system.
