Hands Free - Making a note?

Sat Sep 05, 2015 5:36 pm

I drive a Leaf 2013 SV and use an Android phone. Sometimes, an idea will come to me while driving and I'll want to take a note to myself to follow-up later. But I don't want to grab a pen and paper while driving.

Do you have a suggestion how to use the hands-free voice-activated system for this?

I tried dialing my own cell-phone number to leave myself a message, but T-mobile's system assumes I am calling to hear messages and bounces me to a different menu.

Thank you for your ideas.

Bob

On my iPhone, I just tell Siri to take a note. Is there a similar function for "OK Google"?

Get an android wear watch or sign up for an internet phone number with free voice mail and use the cars system to call that and leave yourself a message.

DaveinOlyWA,

I haven't figured out how to voice text with my Android phone & Leaf.
How do you do it?

I do it straight from the phone, no LEAF involved

Using voice text with the leaf you can only send pre saved messages and only 4 are custom.
