Hello,
I just bought a A180 Year 2014. When I pushed the 'Voice Command' button on my steering wheel, there is no response. I check in my Comand -> Settings, I cannot see 'Voice Control' option nor 'Linguatronic' option. 
Is this Software related (i.e. software needs to be updated to support this option?) or hardware related (hardware not enabled or not configured?)
Also, I cannot see the Web Browser icon ('Globe').
Thanks for your help :)

im pretty sure that unless you have command online that button only works when connected to your phone, or maybe Apple car play

May 16 AMG A45 White. Just about every option going I think. Miles better than my Golf 7R (except maybe the cruise control)

Hello Steeve, many thanks for your comment. My Android phone is connected to the Comand by Bluetooth and I can make/receive call, read SMS, browse my contact list thru Command. But still the voice button on steering wheel does nothing. Call&Hang buttons work fine...

A quick press on the voice button should launch the Voice commands for the Garmin SatNav.

If you have a smartphone connected, a long press of the button will launch Siri, etc. So you can ask Siri questions and get the response back via the cars speakers.

I don't think Siri is allowed on his android phone.

Hi,

Guys, it's a 2014 A class (pre-Facelift car), so he hasn't carplay or android auto. (Or maybe a retrofit with a NTG 5? :p ).
Your voice button activate only the GPS (Becker Map Pilot Harman GPS or GarminSat GPS).
I'm pretty sure, you have an Audio 20 and not a comand online. Could you provide us the VIN number of your car? I will confirm what NTG 4.5 model you got :)

My car is 2013 and I have the Comand. My voice button works with and without my phone. I can change from radio to cd's and to mobile when it is connected, amongst other things.
