Talking to Your Vehicle Gets Easier with Improved Voice Recognition CarBuyersExpress dealerships bring automotive brands together for easy vehicle comparisons

LA CROSSE, Wis., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Voice recognition has been an option for years in new vehicles, but as most drivers have experienced, the recognition part has been quite limited. Many voice-activated features have had problems understanding or responding to drivers' commands, leading to frustration and eventual futility. All that ineptitude seems to be changing with the newfound advances major automotive makers have made, as each looks to build the most robust infotainment system.


Dealerships like Brenengen Chevrolet and Wehrs Chevrolet in La Crosse, WI offer the ever-improving Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system in many of its new vehicles. The new MyLink system features an 8-inch touch screen with several built-in apps, but it is highlighted by its voice-recognition. The revamped infotainment system will more easily understand natural speaking and interpret sentences rather than only listening for specific keywords. It also works with you to help complete requests rather than ignoring them or completing them inaccurately.

Even the navigation system responds to addresses and points of interest. If the MyLink system doesn't have adequate information from the voice command, it asks for more rather than jumping to an incorrect conclusion.

Other competitive infotainment systems like the HondaLink, available at Tom Kadlec Honda, feature less robust voice recognition, but offer unique options like audio versions of Facebook and Twitter feeds when synced with the drivers' smartphones. Owners can also easily access news, podcasts, radio, audio books, and local restaurants.

The evolution of the infotainment system has led to more competition between major auto makers and rapid improvements. Visit or call 608-791-7171 to find out more about the infotainment systems available from the various brands at the portal website.
