Voice command button not working

Nothing happens when I press the button on the steering wheel. I don't have Nav or the Tech Package. Do I need either for the button to work? I've paired the phones no problem and can make and receive calls but no voice commands. Any suggestions?

TIA

Ive read somewhere voice command is only with tech/nav. I think that button in your case is used to answer the bluetooth phone.

I have the same configuration and my dealer told me that it will only work with NAV and the steering wheels are mass produced so the button is standard whether you get the optional packages. Hope it helps!

Thanks!

I wonder if it's a matter of coding to get it to work?

I have NAV and idrive and my voice command button doesn't work either. I just got a 2006 330i. Is there a module of some kind that needs to be purchased?
