It could be because we hate the continuous reports of vehicles on the shoulder. 20 of them on my drive to work every morning, and another 20 on my way back. I could care less. I'm 4 lanes away from every one of them, and they are usually 20 off the roadway. Leave it alone and don't report them.

Why can't you navigate to place via voice com (other than home and work)?

Hi...What were the Samsung settings? :-) I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and reporting is not working at all....
Thanks!

Are you sure it's enabled for your country?
Voice commands are not available everywhere.

Thanks vince1612. I was finally able to get someone at Samsung to realize that I had some settings on my phone incorrect (after over 30 minutes of talking with them).

Sorry but as a simple community member I just don't have the answers. I've run out of ideas and suggestions at this point.

I have even gone to the point of upgrading my phone to a Samsung Galaxy On5 with Marshmellow. And, I'm still having trouble with voice commands. What can I do now other than look for another app or not report anything? Very frustrating.

I reinstalled the app, but it didn't help the situation at all. I still can't use a voice command to report a car stopped on the side of the road.

If you make sure to have setup and to know your username and password to login you will be fine.

I have talked with Samsung Support. They say it is a problem with the app and suggest that I try reinstalling. If I do that will I lose my favorites, points, etc?
