I just purchased a 2011 Santa Fe. The Bluetooth voice recognition for the phone doesn't recognize many names in my phone directory. Is there a way for it to learn your voice or is there an update?

I have the same problem, 2011 SF. It recognizes a few, but not most. Some that it will not recognize are simple, like "Tom". Using a Samsung Note 3 with Android 4.4.2. (By the way, upgrading to 4.4.2 seemed to correct an intermittent pairing problem.)

Haven't had a problem with mine once I figured out it goes by last name first. Bit tricky as I have relationships down with the names, and will add the word "cell" or "Work" to the name in the directory. I have a Samsung S3 but will probably be getting a new one such as an S5.
Did have the problem initially with having to pair the phone to the car a few times. Haven't had a problem with that since I got the S3.

Hi Tomcatvet, your solution sounds good. Unfortunately the car is in the tire shop getting new Continental LX20's today. I will test and report tomorrow. Thanks!

I have a Galaxy S3 and contacts are sorted first last name. I have no problems with it recognizing names. If I say "call bob smith mobile" it does. Maybe its the sort order?

I'm not sure if Tomcatvet's last name first was the solution, but by reducing the contact name down to a single name in the phone, then re-pairing, it seems to work fine. Many thanks for steering me in the right direction!
