    Hi all
    I hope someone can help me.
    Let me explain my 2009 c class has standard radio/cd with Bluetooth and it works great BUT
    To be totally hands free (and legal) I do not want to have to press home button to activate Siri.
    In my workshop as I do a very dirty and dusty job,so I don't get my iPhone 6 dirty I use a device called a plantronic K100 5 years old and I can activate Siri to call any no in my phone send a text or email.
    I don't want to do that in car just activate Siri to make a call or read a text I have looked at a satechi home button but from what I have seen on internet it doesn't play with IOS 10 any body got any suggestions ?
    Thanks in advance Dell

    Say "Hey Cortana"

    Apple must have a similar "Always Listen" option?

    I think Cortana is now available for IOS and Google is working on their thing for IOS but for some reason I can't recall if the Google one has a famous female persona...

    It does have an 'Always listen', or in this case a 'Hey Siri' option. Only downside to this is it has to be connected to power for it to work.
