    Default Which button do you use to initiate a phone call?

    Members don't see this ad
    On my previous 2015 Hyundai Genesis, I would just hit the green phone button twice and it would dial the last person called. If I hit the green phone button once, it would open the phone screen.

    On my new 2017 Genesis G90, when I hit the green phone button an error message pops up about not using while driving.

    How do you guys initiate phone calls?

    Never tried the green button but I use the phone button in the center of the dashboard and get the error message and click ok and continue making a call

    I use the Talk button above the green button and say the voice command "Redial" to call the last number or "Call {contacts name}" to initiate a new number to be dialed. I find the voice recognition software to be so easy to use over my wife's Infiniti. I only use the green button to accept an incoming call.

    Ditto.

    Or you can hold in the same voice button above the green phone button for a couple of seconds to activate Siri or Ok Google.

    But as was just stated the voice recognition is superior to all.

    I do the combination of voice and then a quick hit of the round knob for the confirmation.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Another way that is quite handy is to go to the phone section with the knob and toggle to the call history and select the number you want.

    The not allowed to use while driving prompt is quite asinine when you think about it. You can select a channel, a song, an FM or AM station, you can tune directly, you can navigate, but push the green button, sorry too dangerous.

    IF you have & use an iPhone , 6s or 7 in your G90... go to Settings/Siri and activate the "Hey Siri" function...then you don't need to push any buttons. Just loudly say "Hey Siri", wait for ding, then give her your request/command

    Yes, thanks. I have resorted to using the Voice Command button and saying, "Call <person's name>".

    I think this is a software bug. Pressing the green button should dial the last number from the call list or bring up the call menu.

    I was able to add a SINGLE number to the favorites function. How do I add more on the G90?

    Highlight any contact or number and press MENU. Then choose ADD to Favorites.
