The M&M manual says that you can enter a destination byvoicethen goes on to say that this is notavailablein all languages, but does not list the languages in which you can't do it.
I cannot find an option to do this, so I wondered if English was one of those languages in which this was not available? (as, you know, so few peoplearoundthe world speak English ;))

The only language option I've seen in Maps & More is when you first turn it on; I was presented with a list from which I could choose my native tongue. I presume the menu text and voice recognition language will be linked to this choice.

For an example of how well voice recognition works with the Scottish accent, see the clip below for Siri on the iPhone.
The clip uses the F*** word a lot, so don't view if offended by this.

Oh dear. I don't use Siri on my iphone due to it's inability to recognise my accent.

I can't wait to try Mancunian. There's no chance! Words likely to cause problems include "lad" Manchester. "pet" , "hen" and the like.
