There may not have been discussion of specifically the voice commands to shut down the app being removed, but there is a lot of discussion about the general removal of any way within the iPhone app to shut it down. This is not a voice commands issue, but a more general one.

More annoyingly for me, waze pauses the music for the beep of the voice prompt, but then allows it to play whilst it wants me to talk to is useless for me.

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.

Thanks.

My Bluetooth headset apparently will only let you use it if you're making a call. I can't really afford to get another at this point so it will have to wait. Voice control seems to work OK for me if I have the radio off.

Over-pronounce the S sound like I-Ssss? It'll be looking for a specific waveform pattern, that should give the ASR what it wants.

Used to be able to change the preferences file but last time I tried it didn't work. It expects an American accent, so is a bit useless over here atm.

Indeed it does. Usually it'll say "heavy traffic reported ahead" then the recalculation beep, then the ETA change. At least that's my experience.
