Active Info display

Post by braveheart74 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 9:38 am

I have had my T-roc now for 2 weeks now so here are a few thoughts on the active info display.
It looks really great, the graphics are clear and it responds quickly to inputs.
It’s taking me some time for me to become familiar with all the options available on this and the main central screen, and l don’t even use the Bluetooth or Car net
I’m working on the voice control and inputting destinations as well as requesting tracks, artists on the media (MP3} and doing this sometimes sitting in the car on the driveway. The neighbors must think I’m nuts.
I’m sure all you younger guys and girls out there will pick it up quicker than an oldie like me, I’m 75 but I’m really enjoying the car and the amazing technology.

Hehe I will let you know what I find! Did you opt for voice recognition as an extra or is this already included with the active info? I am a bit nervous about it. I wanted it, it might be a gimmick but I thought it was cool, but yesterday when TOH went to order a polo the saleguy actually "slated" the AID because he said it was really distracting. Good for him to be honest but I was just standing there thinking, "Great, I actually ordered that..." What do you think of it?

The voice recognition is included and I am working hard on that for my Scottish accent to be recognised when naming artists and tracks on the media or streets and cities on the nav, but it’s getting better

I wonder what that "voice recognition" is then that I could have added as an extra. Or is it because you may have a higher spec T-Roc? (I have the design apparently) - Would be amazing if it worked though especially for music and also the satnav sometimes.

So you hook your phone up to it via the cable to play your music? Then basically go any tell the car what artist? Do you have android or iphone? On my android I use the music app "shuttle" I assume I would have to move all my music to the standard android music app for this to work?

There is a button on the main screen which brings up options for voice commands, nav, media, phone. Tap the one you want then give the command. Media is radio and in my case a MP3 player plugged into the usb socket. You can ask for a radio station or an artist, track or album.
This is standard on Sel spec only I believe.
