Thanks Halle. I just gave it a try in my car. Unfortunately the music didn’t have to be very loud for it to stop working. A shame.. Howevever, I did suspect this would be the case months before even looking for voice recognition. My car used to have a voice recognition system built into it (in Japanese) – shame I couldn’t use that mic with my iPod.. but that wouldn’t suit everyone. :-)
I did find OpenEars very easy to use though – excellent job.
