BlackBerry Assistant
#21
Don't forget that if you have a relatively recent car with Bluetooth/Voice Rec, and the ability to put contacts in it you can call up the Assistant with ease!

Canuck I've got a 2012 Accord Crosstour and even though it runs on QNX, sadly the integration with BB10 is poor. I can only hope that my next car will have better connectivity.

My Passport doesn't recognise that number, I just tried calling it from the Passport. Does it have to be saved as a contact and accessed via Bluetooth?

Has anyone tried getting directions on BlackBerry Assistant?

This is awesome, especially if you want visual route, and route with voice directions.

I did this for the first time in the car last Thursday. While driving, one touch, and then called out where I wanted for go. No typing, the experience was good.

Only downside is, because I don't use 4g, at times it lost signal, and was worried I might miss the turn. But it worked out great at the end.

Maybe give your Honda dealer a call and ask if there is an update available to the car Bluetooth system. You never know... Works a treat in my 2011 Toyota Venza.

Yes, it's only available via Bluetooth in the car.

I understand.
I forgot another feature on Assistant, I just asked it to read my BBM, it read it, and asked what I wanted to do.

I responded reply, and called out my response, and it read it back to me.

I forgot about this Damn excellent function.

I'm just going to ask it to read one of my emails now and see how it goes.

Damn, it read out my email, and I asked to respond to it. Read out what I wanted to say.

Again, it read it out to me, then I said send.

This is great for closed environment, if at home, car etc, where you want to just do everything verbally.

Awesome
Again, I forgot about these great little things.

It would be nice if the maps app had an offline option.
