OK, I've searched and searched. Is there a list on the site of working Voice Commands in the 2013 Outback?

Thanks, members.

I have been able to explore this a bit, though I still have not found a list. The voice commands are extremely limited. It's missing basics on Garmin, and my 2005 (7 years ago!) Toyota Prius, including:

* Retail Stores: Can't tell it to find the nearest Costco, for example
* Temperature: Can't tell it to set the A/C at 74 degrees (this has been in the Prius forever)

Too bad! Overall, it's still better than 2011.

Voice Commands

If you have the slightest foreign language accent (or other "accent" or dialect) it will not take your commands ... Toyota/Lexus TMC is also trying to figure out, how to fix this issue, they have the same problem. There is a technology out there (not yet fully developed in the automobile market) - where you can record your own commands. The drawback is that the unit will then listen only to you!
