Media voice control over Bluetooth?

Hi guys, I have an '11 SE with the non-touch Sync system. I was wondering if there is a way to enable the 'play track,' 'play artist,' etc. voice commands for use over Bluetooth like you can use over USB. When I try to use them, it just says something like 'command unavailable.' I haven't tried the skip or pause commands, since they're pretty useless given there's buttons for those functions. Also, can you make the screen display track info with a Bluetooth device? Specifically, I'm using an iPod touch on iOS6. I also need to check if my Sync software is up to date...

Maybe this can be helpful?

Hi add lightness,

Check out page 47 here:

http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Fo.../11sycsy2e.pdf

It lists the voice commands you can use for Bluetooth audio; track information will not be available. I can check your SYNC software if you'd like. Just shoot me your VIN in a private message. :)

Thanks for the info. I guess those commands aren't possible over Bluetooth then. That's a shame, but I can live with it, at least my iPod will always get charged.
