Voice recognition related problems

Symptom Cause Solution method
Poor voice recognition
  • Excessive, slow speech.
  • Excessive, forceful speech (shouting).
  • Speaking before the beep sound has ended.
  • Loud noise (speaking or noise from outside/inside vehicle).
  • Airfl ow from A/C is blowing against the microphone.
  • Speaking in off-standard expressions (dialect).
Regarding the causes indicated on the left, be careful with how you speak. In addition, when numbers are spoken in a sequence, recognition ability will improve if no stop is placed between the numbers.
False recognition of numbers
Poor voice recognition There is a malfunction in the microphone. A poor connection or malfunction with the microphone may have occurred. Consult an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.
Phone-related voice recognition is disabled There is a problem with the connection between the Bluetooth ® unit and the device. If there is any malfunction after checking the pairing situation, check for device pairing or connection problems.
Names in the phonebook are not easily recognised The Bluetooth ® system is under a condition in which recognition is diffi cult. By carrying out the following measures, the rate of recognition will improve.
  • Clear memory from the phonebook which is not used very often.
  • Avoid shortened names, use full names. (Recognition improves the longer the name is. By not using names such as “Mum”, “Dad”, recognition will improve.)
When operating the audio, a song name is not recognised Song names cannot be recognised by voice.
You want to skip guidance Guidance can be skipped by quickly pressing and releasing the Talk button.

Regarding problems with calls

Symptom Cause Solution method
When starting a call, vehicle noise from the other party can be heard For about three seconds after starting a call, the Bluetooth ® unit's Noise Suppression function requires time to adapt to the call environment. This does not indicate a problem with the device.
The other party cannot be heard or the speaker's voice is quiet The volume is set at zero or low. Increase the volume.

Other problems

Symptom Cause Solution method
The indication for the remaining battery is different between the vehicle and the device The indication method is different between the vehicle and the device.
When a call is made from the vehicle, the telephone number is updated in the incoming/outgoing call record but the name does not appear The number has not been registered into the phonebook. If the number has been registered into the phonebook, the incoming/ outgoing call record is updated by the name in the phonebook when the engine is restarted.
The cell phone does not synchronize with the vehicle regarding the incoming/outgoing call record Some types of cell phones do not synchronize automatically. Operate the cell phone for synchronization.
