Blackberry Z10

The Z10 has voice control, which I knew, however while pairing my Z10 to my BMW Navigator on my K12GT I notice a number appear in the sat navs phone book for a "fake" number listed as Blackberry Voice Control. Dialing it allows the VC function to be accessed.

The sat nav has a quick access Call Home button, now as I live alone calling home's a bit pointless as there's no one to answer the call

So I made the Call Home number the Blackberry Voice Control. Now pressing Call Home allows me to ask the phone to perform various tasks. For example while riding I can say to the phone

"send text to usernames mobile I'm running late should be with you in 20 minutes"

and off it goes and does it, no fuss how cool is that, it also works for emails or to call a number or a person from the phone book rather than try and scroll through the phone book manually

All this while riding a motorcycle

THAT'S COOL! I've tried using voice commands through my helmet headset, and it just won't work for me.

Nice. I'm impatiently waiting for the Z10 to arrive in the US. Looking forward to the voice control function.

Had a Storm for years. It worked well paired with the Interphone F4 intercom. Voice dialing was a big plus when commuting to/from work. Callers never knew I was on the bike.

A couple months ago the Storm died so am now using a Torch. Waiting for the snow to melt to see how it works with the F4.
