I now know I should try to use my bluetooth headset with voice commands; I haven't yet. (Turning my radio off in the car, which should have been a "duh" kind of thing, helped immensely.)
Is there a better way to start voice recognition? The settings either show "wave twice or three finger tap," "wave once or three finger tap," and "three finger tap." I had to set it to the finger tap only because waving sometimes causes a "how can I help you?" from the app when I didn't want to send a voice command, and waving doesn't seem to work when I want it to. Grabbing my phone from the center console and tapping it with three fingers simultaneously doesn't seem very safe to me when traveling at highway speed. Plus I'm fairly certain it's against the law in my state.
Does "wave" mean "wave the phone" or "wave your hand in front of the phone?"
iPhone 3GS with iOS6, here. Upgrade to iOS7 was never presented to me, probably because the phone is going on 4 years old now.
