To minimise distractions even more while driving iPhone users can use voice commands to ask Siri questions to access many iPhone functions such as music selection; making phone calls; and listening to text message, calendar information, and reminders. Users with an iPhone® 4s or newer can take advantage of Siri® Eyes Free functionality with a touch of a button. When activated, Siri voice prompts play through the vehicle’s speakers and the user’s commands and questions are received and transmitted to the receiver using the external microphone.

ANDROID MUSIC SUPPORT
Android devices running operating system 4.0 or later can be connected so music stored on their phone can be played on the DEH-X3950BT, without the need for an app. The process is made possible using Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).

Users can now access music via USB stored on an Android device and operate basic operations like FF, REW, Play, Pause, Random Play, and Repeat. Metadata information such as track, artist, and album name can be displayed.
