Does the base C300 (without options) in the US include voice control for telephone and radio?

Thanks

It should, The button would still be on the steering wheel so it would have to be functional.

The base C300 only has voice control for the optional Garmin nav card. You cannot control the radio or telephone with voice. To get voice control of other things, you must have the Multimedia Package option. (I have a C300 without the Multimedia Package.)

I think it's ridiculous that I have to rotate, enter, select, swipe through 17 different selections and 12 minutes later I finally made that 1 call. Yet, my wife's $25K Subaru dials out in two seconds.

No kidding. And the phone button on the steering wheel does nothing until you switch the info unit to telephone. In what universe does that actually make sense? They couldn't make it so the telephone button turns the thing over to telephone, entering a nav destination changes the thing over to nav etc? My kids could have designed that system better.

Also not a big fan of the mute function which says "microphone on" or "microphone off" but what it says is what pressing the button will do , rather than the actual setting right now. So if it says "on", it means the thing is off but if you press the button it will turn on. They couldn't have added the universal on/mute icon that exists on every other communications device on the planet?
