Vauxhall first to introduce talking carBack

Vauxhall ADAMThe Trusted Dealers like to be hot on the trail of any new technology for cars of the future and today Vauxhall has announced that it will be the first in its class to produce the highly anticipated, talking car.

In fact, the new ADAM capable of talking to its occupants will be the very first car that you can ask, ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ and receive an accurate response.

Back in the 1980s, we saw talking cars as a phenomenon reserved only for the likes of Michael Knight in the famous television series, Knight Rider, but now we can all gain the opportunity to have our very own talking Kit by owning the ADAM which is now available with revolutionary Siri Eyes Free iPhone Integration.

The ADAM will be the first car in its class with Internet access via voice activation and there will also be available a free IntelliLink update for Siri in ADAM models manufactured before June.

When fitted with the innovative IntelliLink infotainment system, ADAM is now available with full integration for Siri Eyes Free, the unique intelligent assistant from Apple that helps you get things done whilst driving just by asking.

Using a steering wheel-mounted button, customers with a compatible iPhone1 running iOS 6 can direct Siri Eyes Free to perform a number of tasks while they keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.

What makes the system unique to the market is that it offers more than traditional voice activation: you can speak to Siri Eyes Free in ADAM in a conversational tone, just as you would with a friend.

To minimise distraction, Apple and Vauxhall have taken hands-free functionality even further by using Siri Eyes Free mode to interact with an Apple device using nothing more than the driver’s voice.

Siri is available free of charge in all IntelliLink-equipped ADAMs which are ordered from today. Customers who already own an ADAM with IntellilLink can also benefit from Siri Eyes Free, via a free update available from next month.

The innovative IntelliLink system can be continually updated throughout the customers’ ownership to ensure in-car infotainment is just as up to date as their mobile communication. Updates are available for ADAM owners through their nearest Vauxhall dealer.
