I have a similar question. I have a 2007 BMW X3, the voice command works for the phone but not for navigation. Is that the way it is for X3's, or do I have some problem? Thanks.

No nothing is wrong. You get VR commands for the phone only. BMW introduced VR commands to their BMW Assist with Bluetooth implementation around March/April 2005.

Now someone will probably come along and say ... yes, but I have BT but also have VR commands for the NAV ...

Well, for folks that have Bluetooth only (i.e not BMW Assist with BT), mainly folks in Europe, or folks in the USA that retrofitted a Bluetooth ULF module then they get the VR commands for the NAV as well.

Confusing isn't it? Why BMW use two different suppliers for their Bluetooth modules is anyones guess. Motorola for the Assist/BT TCU and Visteon for the BT ULF module.

It is the case for my retro fit in Euro spec car E46 2004 vert using 3rd gen 961 Ulf 'Mit Ses' working SE W810i with SMS on nav screen;
new and uncoded... VR worked fine for phone before coding and after with
sat nav+tv and I now have partial VR for Sat Nav commands....
weird thing is my scale commands will only take metres not yards...
and i have no Help Navigation only Help phone to get options....

I know very confusing... friend has 2005 e46 and has factory Bt but NO VR!!!!!

ditto to above,
I have a 2006 X5 and the voice command works just like El Jeffe said. saying help was a lot more useful than the manual in getting it setup.

Ravnew ,
"It also let's you use some commands on the nav system."
