Hello Eddo, thanks for your input. The vehicle is a 2013 Buick Enclave.
Are you saying that you had to go into the contacts (phone book) that is stored on the vehicle and modify each contact in order to be called up with the Talk voice activated system on the car by name?
When we paired the iPhone to the Enclave it automatically downloaded the Phone Book (contacts) that exist on the iPhone. The problem is that apparently the voice activation on the car looks at something other than the name that is spoken because it doesn’t place the call like it would on Siri on the iPhone, but displays a number (not the phone number) that it apparently assigns to that contact. I suspect one can do something to place the call to that number by pressing some button somewhere but one has to believe that the number displayed matches the name you spoke (???). Not a good situation if you are driving and trying to be safe by doing a hands free call.
I have been on a chat with the people at Apple hoping that they have something that could be set on the iPhone in Settings. Their response was to ask me if I could find out the OS Version that the Enclave was using to pair to the phone. I don’t know this.
I do have a newer vehicle that has a way to connect the iPhone directly into the vehicle where you select to connect directly to the iPhone instead of through the car’s system where when you press the Talk button on the steering wheel you are talking directly to Siri and not the car’s system.
Sound like you have a work around with the device that you have installed but I would rather see it there’s a way to make the system we have to work.
