Voice Command button on steering wheel

I was wondering if anyone knows if all the X3 models have the funtionality to use the voice command for your phones? The button beside the phone button on the steering wheel. Just not sure if you need the nav to have that working which would be odd.

Hmmm..., I need to try this again. I had a firmware update applied a few months ago and need to check if the long press activates Siri as that would be nice. Before the upgrade there was no way to activate Siri from the voice command button.

Well, that was disappointing. Holding the voice command button always immediate activates iDrive and never triggers Siri on my iPhone 5.

I know I can trigger Siri by pressing the home button on the phone, but it's not always within reach while driving.
