Question on voice commands and navigation

Just picked up a new 4.8i yesterday. I read the manual last night, and the info on the navigation and voice commands seems a little light. I was wondering if there was a seperate manual that was suppose to come with the car covering the navigation and voice commands in more depth. Did anyone else receive such a manual, or is what I received the whole thng?

By the way, love the new X5. It is much smoother than the 2006 we had and seems much more refined.

I don't think you get a seperate manual. Just go into a menu......(like communication) and then say help. The nav itself is pretty helpful........Phil

no. i don't think so..

The Voice command feature by the way, is more of a marketing tool than a navigation tool IMHO
