No my nav does not accept voice commands, as far as I can tell.

My car is pre-wired bluetooth according to the label in the trunk.
@Poncho...I'll try to explain it the best I can. The SOS is the telephone transmitter for BMW Road Service or accident notification (sort of like OnStar for GM) that is mounted in the rear view mirror of convertibles and other models that was a $750 option called "BMW Assist & Bluetooth system". I think this is part of the COP package or requires the COP package in order to make phone calls from the car without using an actual hand held phone. This mirror has a "SOS" labeled on the RH side of the mirror with a pull down cover that when opened had a push button call system to call for assistance from BMW. Here's a video link to show you what I'm talking about. Without this option, you probably don't have the bluetooth capability unless you add an aftermarket
