    Is there a list somewhere that details all the voice command you can use? I just found out last night by watching a commercial that you can click the magnifying glass and say "Navigate to McDonalds" and the built in turn by turn will kick in and route to the closet McDonalds. You can always say "Call Bob mobile" and it will call Bob's mobile. The problem is those are the only two I know. If anyone has a list please share! :)

    Those are the only 2 im aware of im going to try to say "navigate to dad" and see if it loads up my turn by turn to his work or what it does. This is something i learned like 2 days before the phone was launched during a video on google.com/navigation

    Also noticed that when saying "navigate to..." and an address that you cant really say a number on the address because it gets confused sometimes so i just say "navigate to..." and the road name and town and then its all good.

    Would love to learn any other new tricks, im thinking maybe like "call papa johns rockaway, nj" and seeing if it calls papa johns right away or if it takes me to the web first.

    The Google Voice SEarch seems to be limited to searches, call, and navigate to.

    The Voice Dial app, you can also say "open" and the name of an app and you can say "Dial" and a number.

    Neither seems to offer control of the music player, which is something I liked in Microsoft Voice Command on Windows Mobile.

    I would like to see these functions all combined in a single app so I don't need to know which one to use, and of course I would like to be able to start either one of them with the call button on my Bluetooth headset.

    This is probably my only serious complaint about the Droid.

    Absolutely. I love the Droid. The few little issues I have are certainly things that can be fixed by Google or 3rd party developers. Maybe even me if I can find any time to learn the SDK.

    Just a few little nits that come from using Windows Mobile for more than seven years and needing to learn the differences.

    omg! i used to live at 552 street name, city name!

    yeah, but didn't you have to train the ms voice command crapware? that's why i held out for a moto android device, because moto's voice command software is second to none.

    No, Microsoft Voice Command is speaker independent, no training. Some of the phones had other voice dialers that needed training, but the ones that had Voice Command were great. Cyberion Voice Commander was pretty good too, but MSVC worked better for me.

    The new Tellme app for Windows Phone 6.5 is amazing. Not likely to see it for Android though, it is a Microsoft subsidiary.
