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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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
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.
I have a Verizon HTC One M8. The phone is great, but Google Hangouts rarely sends or receives MMS messages. Most of the time, it fails to send an MMS message, but when it does, it usually takes over 20 minutes.
The stock messaging app works fine and has no issues sending or receiving MMS instantly. However, I prefer Google Hangouts.
Also, I am not asking for solutions such as shutting off wifi or anything involving wifi calling being shut off because I don't have to do that with the stock messaging app and I do not plan to compromise by disabling another important feature in my phone.
I have a T-Mobile S6 and when I'm connected to WIFI, hangouts notifications do not get pushed. I have to manually open hangouts and all of the notifications come flooding in. Never see this issue with WIFI off.
My wife's 2009 Mariner Sync system worked great with her Nokia 5130. She is on AT&T, and just upgraded phones to a Nokia E63 and after successfully pairing with the Sync system, the phone will not accept calls or allow outgoing calls. The phone displays this message: "Call Not Allowed". Calling and receiving remains blocked with the same message even after walking out of range of the Mariner until she reboots the E63. The phone works normally until it connects to the Sync and the blocking starts again. The E63 can be linked by Bluetooth to our home computers without a problem. AT&T says the SIM card is fine and advised me to check with Nokia and Ford about a fix. That is why I am posting here. I already contacted SyncMyRide (Ford's customer support service for Sync) and worked with a service rep on the problem. After going through a lot of Q&A which included resetting Sync and clearing Bluetooth cache on the phone, he told me to install Sync V1.3 (was at V1.1). After installing the latest Sync update, and pairing the E63 again, nothing changed. The problem still exists. My wife is about to turn off Sync's Bluetooth.Does anybody have a clue whether or not this phone (and any other E series Nokia running the same OS) will function properly with Sync?
if I turn Bluetooth on before I get in my Ford Mondeo it connects to ford audio and starts playing media via Walkman BUT if I exit car and go.back in, say 20 mins later the Z3 auto connects, and the media starts playing but I get no sound except the odd crackle, the currently selected track is visible on the car radio screen and tracks can be skipped etc, the phonebook also works and I can make receive calls with no audio problems.
Never had this issue with my iPhone, you could leave the car and get back in and it would automatically start playing from where it stopped when you got out.
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.
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?
After every call, Hangouts will freeze. It will unfreeze after about a minute. Then I send the error report, it will freeze again for another minute. Then I can click okay to close the app. SMS usually doesn't make it freeze, but sometimes will.
so HTC sent me another m8 after my last had the volume rocker pop out.
I backed up my first phone and then restored the new phone from that backup minutes later. Everything appears exactly as how i had it on the old m8, except my contacts and hangouts are doing this weird thing.
1. my google contacts are loading 141 people into my phone book. My google contacts in gmail, however, have only 85 people allotted for my phonebook in "my contacts" and my old device only displayed those 85.
2. Hangouts lists both the SMS and Hangouts convos separately, so that one contact (bob) is listed in a convo as both bob and bob with an "sms" icon in white over the bottom right of his profile picture.
I was using Hangouts 2.0 for SMS for a day or so, and I've noticed that it doesn't support splitting messages over 160 characters, as the stock HTC messages app (and Textra and most others) does. This is annoying, and until Google corrects this, I won't be using it.
