Galaxy S5 :: How To Get Video From Android To Show Up On Screen With Ford SYNC System
Mar 23, 2015
I'm trying to get a video from my android s5 to show up in my F 150 pickup truck on my sink screen actually I would like to mirror my phone to sync screen any suggestions I'm checking into three. Oh I do video component wires to do it straight instead of Bluetooth but I'm not sure what would work properly
When I try pairing and the X10 discovers the Escape bluetooth, Escape displays a 6 digit pin number. When I try entering the code, the X10 does not respond or recognizes the pin. Is there anyone who has successfully paired their X10 to the Ford Sync system?
My phone recently upgraded its software (wiping out everything on the phone in the process), and ever since it will no longer allow me to listen to audio through the sync Bluetooth. Doesn't even seem to want to work when hard wired into the console. Phone works fine for calls, just not audio. Verizon was clueless.
Today, I made a call in my truck (2013 F-150) using bluetooth and the Sync system and it was super quiet. I had the volume on the phone all the way up, and the radio in the truck was turned up where it normally is. I later tried another call, to another person, and it was the same issue. I deleted the connection, both on the phone and in the truck and set it up again like it was new. It seems like it may have worked, but hard to tell, since I am just sitting in my driveway and it's to late to really call people to test it.
starting just over a week ago my Ford Sync (not Ford Touch) stopped receiving texts from my s5. I have tried unpairing and repairing the phone and sync, I get the message to allow acess to my phone book but not for texts (even doubled check that MAP profile was on, it was). Message notification set to on also. I think my phone updated, and that's when the texts stopped working.
I have set up my bluetooth to work on my Ford Focus Audio system. Followed the instructions:
- Paired the devices. - Entered the code given by the audio unit. - Confirmed that they were connected.
The blackberry asked if I wanted the phone to connect automatically to the unit (So I don't have to go through the process of waiting for, and accepting a connection on the phone. Drove to the garage to get fuel and turned off the engine. Got back in the car started up and drove off. At this point the phone should have connected automatically like my old Nokia. No sign of it doing so. On stopping I looked at the phone and it was asking to accept a connection from Ford Audio. This is not automatic connecting. Automatic connecting is the phone linking up itself as soon as I get in and switch the radio unit on. So why hasn't this worked?
And my s5 is running HOT. I can't put my finger on it. I went from 100% battery to 11% in less than 6 hours on standby. What processes may be draining he battery? Location is off, battery doctor and CM security take care of all junk and background apps, sync is disabled. I'm shocked!
I'm using an app that configures a vpn profile and connects to it. When I'm connected, I want just my notification to be shown, but android provides its own notification that is shows and I can't seem to get rid of it. Any possible way to get rid of this without root?
I generally don't have trouble getting through a work day with my S6, but I do wonder whether the Android utilization is high. During a typical day (1 - 2 hours SOT, 14-15 hours off charger), I'm burning about 60%-70% of total battery, 30% of which is Android System (~22%) and Android Kernel (~8%). Google Play and other apps are all typically < 5%. Is this normal, or does this indicate that a factory reset might be a good idea? On previous phones I don't recall core Android being this high (usually <10%).
my hands-free bluetooth in my car worked this morning.I have a new Ford with the Sync system. Tonight I'm getting an error when trying to make a call. Error message says "phone not found" or "phone disconnected" The error message on the phone says". App_net_rim__bb_phone_app67 is not responding process terminated. Sounds ominous! I have the Bold 9700.
I have my Google voice number as my default phone, and my default messaging app. It doesn't play nice with Ford Sync in our companies new Explorer. Let me state the regular Verizon number works flawless with it. Back to hangouts. I can dial out from sync with no problems. But incoming calls to the hangouts number(Google voice number) are not acknowledged by Sync. When I answer the call with the phone, the audio does come through sync, and I can hang up the call from sync. Text messages are not acknowledged at all by Sync. I can change sync to Bluetooth audio and hear/control from there. But, who wants to leave it set to Bluetooth audio. I want to hear the radio.
Just got the 4S iphone. When I sync it to my ford touch I can call out no problem. When the phone rings, it does not ring on the ford touch only on the iphone. I have to answer the call and manually transfer it to the ford each time which is dangerous when driving.
what to do with my iphone 4s not being able to use handsfree in car- Have already deleted/re-paired/reset & have had all possible updates performed-ccan't think of any other possible way to try to get this great safety feature running properly...Any help would be greatly appreciated--Iphone is operating the 5.1.1 version ????
I have a 2011 Ford Flex and I have a 9300 Curve.my car says it supports text messaging while I drive but says my phone is not set up for text messaging via Bluetooth.I have tried the 9700 Bold as well but that does not support text messaging via bluetooth either.Is there a phone that BB makes that will support text while driving ?I have tried the app called Text'nDrive DriveSafe and the application does not work in the Ford car with the Sync Bluetooth.I want to be able to text while driving for work as well as have my text made audible for me and I know that the Ford sync does this but with what phone?
I have a 2010 ford focus with the sync system. Every feature on the system used to work well with my bbry but now I have some issues with the photon.
1. When I use the bluetooth connection to try to stream pandora, my library starts to play automatically. It will run both applications simultaneously until I turn one off.
2. It only connects automatically about 50% of the time when I enter the car. I have two phones installed. The photon is the #1, my wife's evo is #2. It automatically connects to the evo upon entering the car with both phones, desite repeatedly re-installing. I need both installed because we trade cars often and it's a pain to re-install hers every time. it used to work fine with evo & bbry.
3. My music library does not show
On the plus side the photon lets me respond to text messages with the voice to text feature and the radio range is so good that if I move the car from out front into the driveway 60+ft away, the blue tooth STILL connects.
I am currently running OS v18.104.22.1685 (Bundle 1600, Platform 22.214.171.1244) on the Tour 9630. When trying to utilize the Ford SYNC in my new vehicle, the Tour will not download the address book to enable voice call via the phonebook. On talking to the SYNC tech support they indicated I needed the firmware upgraded to version 4.7.130 as a minimum. How can i get the firmware updated? I checked with Verizon support and they only know how to do the standard software upgrades, not firmware.
I can't seem to receive DC calls through Ford Sync, does anyone know if there is a fix? I know it kind of defeats the purpose of "hands free" having to hit the button on the side but it really defeats the purpose if I can't use Sync at all! Sometimes I can get the first alert but then I can't hear anything, not even if i hold the phone to my ear.
Prior to the ICS upgrade I was able to receive and view text messages through Ford Sync. After the upgrade I still have the MAP option toggles available on Ford Sync setup screens but Sync doesn't display a new text message notification and when I tell it to download existing text messages from the phone it starts to and then displays "downloading error". I've unpaired and paired the Razr Maxx several times without success. One of the primary reasons I bought the Razr Maxx over other phones was because it supported the MAP profile.
My phone only seems to show full screen video with the top of the video on the volume button sides and the bottom where the charger hooks in. Is this the norm? When I rotate to put the charger on top (aka, so I can charge the battery while doing something so battery draining), nothing happens, the video won't rotate. (This was flash emedded video on a web page.)
I'm trying to find a program or app that recovers deleted videos on the internal storage of an android device. I've found one that recovers photos only, but no go on video recovery so far. I am unable to root as it is a Verizon S5 and the only available root methods require a destructive root. My cloud service did not have time to upload it before it was deleted, so all I have is a corrupt file. I have Dr.fone, but it stays stuck at 90%. Recuva doesn't recognize the device as a searchable drive.
Galaxy s2 on Orange UK - 2.3.5, BVKJ4.Why when i send or recieve a picture message does it turn it into a video and play the "still" image for 5 seconds? When i send a long text message it converts the message to a "slideshow" and some people moan that they cannot even view it when its sent them?
I have successfully 'paired' my new S2 to my Ford Focus audio system, and it makes and receives phone calls fine - hands free. However - the current settings do not transfer my 'contacts' list to the car system. Every time I turn on the car ignition I get a little 'tune' from the phone, and a notification that says (something like) 'Ford audio would like to share your address book' and an option to 'OK' or cancel. If I click 'OK' my contacts are listed on the car system. There is also another window which says 'Do not ask again'Has anyone else had this issue - because I am getting fed up with having to allow the phone and car to share my contacts list every time I turn on the ignition.
