Avalon voice recognition capabilities

I have tried to use my voice recognition capabilities with my iPhone. It seem to understand the commands but when I tell it to call a name it always seems to get the wrong name or keeps asking me. I was wondering if others are having the same problem or whether someone has figured out how to make it work.

For me it was just frustration as I figured out how to pronounce the names in a way that the system could understand....same with voice recognition on the nav. Once you figure out how to say it (pronunciation and pace, etc), it finally works all the time. I personally think that Toyota is behind one generation on this type of technology...but then I got into a friend's new '14 Subaru and their system so totally sucks I decided to just live with it. Rumor has it that Toyota is working on a software upgrade for our systems (per the fleet manager at my dealer, who is an old friend); however, I haven't heard anything new recently. 'Supposedly', our systems were designed to be fully software upgradeable.....but I'll believe it when I see it.

Important question: Do you have the Touring or Limited?
