Talk to XT

Post by burtsr »

Is there any way to set up an XT to be able to talk to it. My other car one I can say 'Hey Garmin' then give it an address.

Set up with Sena headset on a 2022 Goldwing.

There isn't. The XT is not voice command capable.

I didn't think so. But that sure would make it a lot easier on the bike.

I am curious how it works in the car because in my mind you would need to know the address to speak which would first research to find unless you are talking about speaking the name of a location that exist in some sort of a saved destinations list.

Give me a few days to confirm but I(think) can move music tracks and pause them from voice commands on the XT linked to my Sena SRL3. I did not try with my Cardo Pack talk as i found the function on the SRL by accident.

That is the sena controlling the music. You are talking to sena which controls music on the Phone which displays on the Zumo. Cardo does the same. Zumo's do not have voice control

That is the step that I have yet to confirm. Does the XT pass on voice commands to the phone. There is no reason why it shouldn't - it passes on two way phone communication - set up with the XT at the centre, there is no direct BT link between headset and phone.

I stopped investigating when I realised that it was necessary to prevent the phone from locking the screen.

This is my Sena controlling the music player on the XT. My phone medial player is disabled, I only take music from the XT and also do not connect my Sena to the phone.
All I could do when i checked was to move the track on one
