Hands-free help? Google built-in has got you 

Hey, Google. Make my day easier


Your voice has some serious power. Take a look at how Google built-in compatibility gives you a next-level drive. 

Communicate hands-free. Get live traffic updates. Download some of your favourite apps and more. All thanks to Google built-in.*

Keep in touch with hands-free calls and texts. 

The connected services you want are made easy. Stay connected to family and friends, stay updated on incoming messages and calls, and quickly reply without needing to touch your phone. 
 

Enjoy entertainment. 

With Google Play,* you can download some of your favourite apps directly to your vehicle just as you would on your phone. Conveniently access and listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks and more — hands-free. 
 

Control vehicle functions with your voice. 

Simplify your driving experience by using your voice to control vehicle functions and get relevant information for your drive. Use Google Assistant* to control the temperature and defroster, check to see if you have enough fuel (or range if you’re an EV driver) to get to your destination, and more — just say “Hey Google” to get started.
 

Stay organized. 

Ask Google to help you remember things and get information throughout your day. Stay informed with the latest weather forecast, upcoming agenda items and more. 
 

Get where you want to go. 

Google Maps* is seamlessly integrated into your vehicle for a smooth and confident driving experience. Find the fastest route, get live traffic updates, discover nearby destinations and more. If you’re an EV driver, you can get an estimate of how much battery charge will remain at the end of your route. Just say “Hey Google” or press the Push-To-Talk button on your steering wheel to get started.
