IPhone :: Sync Ford To 4 (unable To Pair) Do It Manually

I am able to connect my iphone4 to my car, but having trouble pairing. The only way I am able to place calls is manually. My car setup gives a 6 digit pairing #, but I am unable to find a place to enter this on the iphone. It then reads pairing failed.

Xperia :: Cannot Pair X10 With Ford Sync On 2011 Ford Escape
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?

IPhone :: New Ford Focus And USB Sync
I just bought a new ford focus and can play/call via Bluetooth. When i tell the sync system to switch to usb and play all it displays that music is playing but does not output audio. Do i need to connect the aux cable for that or should audio play through the usb connection?

IPhone :: Sync With Ford Touch
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.

IPhone :: Ford (Microsoft) Sync And 3.0 Bluetooth - How To Disable It?
I have a 3G iPhone with the 3.0 software and drive a Ford with the Microsoft Sync package (bluetooth and USB). Before the 3.0 software, the iPod on the iPhone played through USB and the phone worked over bluetooth just fine.

Now the iPhone starts playing music over Bluetooth media streaming once I start the car, it's a random track and I have no control over what is selected.

I want to disable the Bluetooth streaming without disabling Bluetooth entirely. Any suggestions?

IPhone :: Ford Microsoft Sync & Pre-purchase Questions
In 2008 I purchased a Ford Sport Trac with Microsoft Sync. I have used everything from the original white stick iPod Shuffle to the previous iPod Nano to what I am using now, the newest generation iPod Touch; all have worked fantastic.

I am in the market for a new phone and thought I might like to get the iPhone. Unfortunately I am getting mixed reviews as to will it work correctly or not.

Just like my iPods I would connect the iPhone through the USB so the information displays on my screen and so that I an use the voice commands to select music and such. And I'm hoping just like how my current phone is blue-toothed the phone will work this way as well.

1. Will the iPhone for music still work the same when connected to the USB?

2. Will the iPhone be charged like the iPod so that I don't need an additional adapter/charger?

3. Will the blue-tooth work for the iPhone or will this feature be disabled because the USB is connected? Can you use both at the same time?

Right now with my current phone if receive a call the music pauses and the phone takes over. When done the call the music resumes. It is my hope that the iPhone will work this same way but instead of having a phone and a iPod Touch that I can instead just have the iPhone and can do both at the same time.

IPhone :: IOS4 Disabled Ford Sync System
I have an iPhone 3GS that was working great with iPhone OS 3.1.3 in my Ford Focus with Microsoft Sync. I updated to iOS 4 yesterday, and today I was unable to see the phone using USB. Bluetooth seemed to work fine, and I can still use the phone features with Sync.

I didn't think anything of it, until I got home. I plugged in USB device after USB device that used to work fine, and now NONE of them work. The only thing that has changed was my upgrade to the new iOS 4. If you have a car with the Sync system, you may want to read around, there are many people having this problem.

IPhone :: Text Messaging - Integration With Ford Sync
It is unfortunate that a technology leader such as the iPhone is missing a significant feature that RIM and Android have, and likely losing market share accordingly.

Through the "Message Access Profile" bluetooth profile, Ford Sync cars (1+ million sold to date) have the ability to read out your text messages via bluetooth, ensuring that the driver isn't distracted. With so many laws banning driver distractions (hand-free requirements, no text messaging initatives), this is a significant safety issue for today's iPhone owners.

I have seen many posts for years from users wishing that Apple would get on board with this technology, but so far it hasn't been raised as a viable option to implement.

Please reply to this thread if you are one of the 1+ million Ford Sync owners who also own an iPhone and wish this feature was implemented. I luckliy own both a BlackBerry and an iPhone, but not all people do.

IPhone :: 3GS Ford Focus Car Bluetooth Audio Microsoft Sync
Noted this on my 2009 Ford Focus with Microsoft Sync:

Next track thinks it works, but it doesn't go to the next track.

Does anyone know, or think, things like this will be worked out? I'd love to not even use the CD Changer in the car and only use my iPhone for music purposes, but this makes it annoying since I can't change tracks.

IPhone :: Ford Fusion Hybrid, USB And Bluetooth Sync Not Working ..
I have been using an iPhone 3G for about 6 months and have recently purchased a Ford Fusion hybrid. The MS Sync feature was a big selling point for me, but shows the following annoying behaviors:

1. Anytime I connect to the car via USB, Sync wants to re-index my iphone, which takes 15 minutes or more. After this is completed, it works passingly well.

2. If I choose to stream through bluetooth, the phone works well, but the audio skips incessantly, and Sync does NOT index the iPod, meaning that voice navigation of the audio is impossible.

Internet searches have shown that many other people have similar gripes, but none of the "solutions" that I have found seem to work.

IPhone :: IOS4 Upgrade Breaks Microsoft Sync In Ford Vehicles
Well I was quite excited to download the new update. Cool features and lots of nice new stuff. But of course there is always the downside. As an owner of 2 Ford vehicles, both having MS Sync in them I have become a heavy user of the system and my iPhone is at the center of it, bluetooth streaming, voice activated calling, voice activated music requests, etc.

Well that all ended with iOS4 upgrade. The phonebooks won't download, the USB port gets disabled as soon as you switch over to it and it won't play anything except over bluetooth audio. No more voice dialing either.

Needless to say I'm not a very happy customer. was headed to buy the new iPhone but that ain't gonna happen.

So anyone else had this? There is a 6 page thread about it on and they are non to happy either. Not sure what to do except restore the old 3.13 OS, speaking of does anyone know how to do that? Can I download it somewhere or can I browse thru older backups and restore back to the point before I upgraded? I really use this a lot in the car and with it broken its a real inconvenience.

Who cares...

IPhone :: IOS4 Upgrade My Ford/Lincoln/Mercury SYNC Does Not Work
I drive a 2009 Mercury Sable Premier with SYNC from Microsoft. In fact, one main reason I bought this car was because of the ease of use for IPHONE. It has given me 4 months of easy and wonderful use. Now that I have updated to IOS4 it starts to index the music then says "SYNC USB Removed" followed by either nothing or "USB Not Supported". Nada. I can't even charge it anymore. I can, of course, play music through the 3.5mm plug car stereo cable but this is preposterous. I now live in a state where we cannot touch our phones while driving and I have lost all of my voice command ability. I looked ahead and bout this phone and the car knowing this law was coming and was thrilled to be able to say "Play Artist Blah Blah". Now I cannot do anything but shuffle through the IPOD list while driving, breaking the law and endangering lives. I can play via BLUE TOOTH but the sound quality is terrible and the battery really drains, even worse than the new update alone caused. At first it wouldn't even work with the Blue Tooth until I re-paired the system. I have tried all options and there is no way I can figure to make this SYNC connection in the car now.

Also, when sticking my phone in a BOSE docking station at home, I now get the message "This accessory is not supported by IPHONE" It was before! Now, when I unplug it, I get the same message popping up about every 5 minutes until I restart the phone. Seriously?
Please create a patch ASAP as this is a dangerous issue. Now, millions of people are distracted from the road, fumbling through their Iphone music when they should be looking at the road.

IPhone :: Ford Taurus X Unable To Play Music Using Bluetooth
I have a Ford Taurus X with Microsoft Sync.

This allows me to charge and play my iPod and iPhones through the car speaker system. It shows info about the song, such as name, artist, playlist, and genre.

My iPods work fine. My iPhone, 1st gen, works fine too. But my new iPhone 3GS does not work properly.

If Bluetooth is off, then the iPhone works fine as an iPod.

But if Bluetooth is on, so that I may receive calls through the system, behavior is erratic.

Even if I plug into the USB connection and choose the USB connection to play the iPhone music, it goes to Bluetooth. And it is inaudible. It does not play through the speakers.

If it streams music using Bluetooth through the speakers, then the meta data info does not show up, nor can playback be controlled through the car buttons.

I am very disappointed with this behavior for my latest iPhone 3GS. Is there a way to get this to work properly?

IPhone :: Manually Sync TV Shows, But Auto Sync Music
is there way to manually control what TV shows sync with your iphone, but have it so it autosyncs your music? Right now, I have my iphone set so that it auto-syncs certain playlists (including recently added, etc.) so that I don't have to really worry about music. But since there is obviously limited room for videos, is there any way to control what TV shows go on? Its really annoying how itunes auto sets it for you.

Motorola Photon 4G :: Ford Sync Not Working Well
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.

BB Tour :: Firmware Upgrade To Enable Ford Sync
I am currently running OS v5.0.0.975 (Bundle 1600, Platform 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.

Motorola Admiral :: Can't Seem To Receive DC Calls Through Ford Sync
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.

BB Curve 8900 :: Ringtone When Connected To Ford Sync System
I was recently messing around with my ringtone profiles and I changed something that I am not sure how to get it back to the way it was.I have a ford with the sync handsfree bluetooth system. When I used to connect up my phone to it and would recieve a call it would ring through the car system only and the phone itself would remain silent. When disconnected from the sync system it would then resume ringing only on the phone as expected.

I was playing with the phone the other day and now when I'm driving and receive a phone call it rings on both the phone itself and the bluetooth system in the car as well. Does anybody have any idea what I have done to make this happen. I'd prefer to restore it to the prior behavior.

IPhone :: 3GS Bluetooth Unable To Pair With Car
So I upgraded last month from a 1st gen iPhone, and now my car's built in bluetooth system no longer works! It worked perfectly with the old phone, but with the new one it just gets stuck on "Searching..." and does nothing. I've checked everything on the car system and it's working fine. Does anyone have any ideas on how to hook up the new phone or is it something I'm going to have to wait for Apple to fix?

IPhone :: Way To Manually Sync IP To MobileMe?

But, I can find anywhere to initiate this "manual" sync - where's the button for this?

IPhone :: Sync Manually Without Updating?
I can put a iPhone together with my eyes closed but when you are talking about jailbreaking and syncing I havent done much of it so I need some help. I have a 3Gs 16gb 3.1.3 NOT jailbroke or unlocked. I didnt see the need before so I updated it and now I want to tether with my pc backed it up before I sent it in to Apple for warrany work. I transferred my info to a 3G 8gb that was 3.1.2, it is jailbroke. when I transfered my info from my 3gs it changed my 3g to 3.1.3 (but it did not updated the firmware through iTunes cause I was watching for it) but anyway the 3g is still jailbroke.

I really only need my contacts, my text messages, and apps if I can but I can manually download the apps again if need be but I have 100's of contacts for both of my business.

IPhone :: 4 Won't Sync Podcasts Manually
Ever since I got iTunes 10 I have been having problems with podcasts.

My iPhone 4 will not allow podcasts to be manually added. It will only allow podcasts to be synced by playlists. This is a pain because podcasts constantly get new episodes and I shouldn't have to create a specific playlist EVERYDAY. By the way the "manaully add songs and videos" button is CHECKED and has always been checked. The only time I'm able to manually add podcasts is when the iphone syncs the podcast playlist. And sometimes this doesn't work.

IPhone :: Manually Sync'ing Movies
I am a OSX 10.7.3 and iOS 5.1 user and am unclear about sync'ing movies and videos from my mac to my iPhone. I've done lots of this in the other direction but I'm trying this direction for the first time.

On the iTunes Summary tab I have selected Manually Manage Music and Videos. Now I want to select Sync Movies on the Movies tab but I get this message: "All existing songs, movies, and TV shows will be removed from your iPhone and replaced with movies from your iTunes library." I'm very confused by this message.

Why would iPhone songs be removed when I'm trying to sync movies? Any other words of advice would also be apprectiated.

Motorola Droid Razr :: Lost SMS Push To Ford Sync After ICS Upgrade
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.
