    Having just bought my Accord, I have been experimenting with all the toys in it and find I am really disappointed with the HFT.
    Maybe I am being optimistic here but I don't think my accent is THAT thick that the voice activation cannot understand what I am saying. And to make matters worse, looking in the handbook, I can't see anything in there for voice training.
    Really frustrating :Frown:

    I use voice control on occassion and it seems to work ok however I use voice control to phone dial often and it drives me crazy. I had a Laguna before and it was a breeze. The honda system is the worst I've come across phone wise. Any speeds higher than 40mph seem to render it very hit or miss.
    I love everything else about the car but the voice dial infuriates me.

    Ichiban,my 5 year old daughter speaks more welsh than I do lol.

    black-hawk you have me at a disadvantage.

    I have had hands free systems in my last two cars and I have an aftermarket system in my taxi and they all worked fine. I am struggling with the one in the honda, even as far as repeating numbers to the system. An example being the system thinking I am saying 2 when I am saying 4.
    if it doesnt understand me my wife (who is Thai) will have no chance!!!!
