    I am basically trying to integrate Tasker with Ford Sync. I made a 60 second video showing what I wanted to do.



    Thing is, I don't know how to accomplish this.

    Sorry, don't have a Ford Sync myself, so I wouldn't even know how to start with that.

    I have been researching this on and off for quite a while and haven't figured anything out yet. If you happen to find out how to do this, PLEASE post it here!

    I just bought a new car and it has buttons on steering wheel a lot like the other car I used to have when I first posted this. I really want a way to press a button and have autovoice launch. Surely there has to be a way to do this. Yes? Or no?

    It has its own built-in voice recognition. I saw your video where you could assign buttons on different devices do so a task, is there a way to do this with the steering wheel?

    Check if AutoInput detects your steering wheel buttons. Check the logs when you press a button and see if anything shows up.

    Since the Ford Sync voice button, launches the Cars Voice software, you should be able to create a bogus phone contact that will trigger AutoVoice.
    FordSync Command = "Call AutoVoice" (AutoVoice #1-555-555-5555)
    if calling contact "AutoVoice" disconnect call and launch AutoVoice.

    That is actually a great idea! I am going to try it in the coming days.

    I have a somewhat (un)related question....

    Have you tried autovoice to work with your ford? I have a profile that wil ask me if I want to reply to a recieved whatsapp or text message when connected to my ford fiesta via bluetooth. Everything works except that I cannot get it to work with the car's microphone. Having my phone on my dashboard, I use it for navigation, I have to talk really loud in order for my phone to pick up my voice. When I set autovoice to use the headset, the task stops at the point where I have to give a spoken command.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, so any insight is welcome.
    PS, everything works correctly when connected to my Bluetooth sennheiser headset. I know a car is not the same as a headset, just hoped it could be made to work this way too.
