  1. You'd have to retrofit the Sync module (and possible different controls and display), or swap to the radio to the one where USB connects directly to the radio.
  2. sync

    Do you have the link to what you read? Carplay is only supported with Sync 3.
  3. If the dab display refers to the multimedia display, it's the battery status of the connected phone.
  4. If you have no issues, no issues to upgrade the firmware, if you have no issues with the map, no need to update the map SD card (those are different things). Tomtom firmware will not work (this is not a Tomtom device), the correct Tomtom map SD will (the one for the Ford satnav, not any for Tomtom mobile devices).
  5. You probably need to retrain the anti-pinch protection as described in the manual: Resetting the memory of the electric windows WARNING The anti-trap function is deactivated until you have reset the memory. After the battery has been disconnected from the vehicle you must reset the memory separately for each window: Note: On vehicles with a convertible top, the roof and doors must be fully closed before carrying out the following procedure. Lift and hold the switch until the window is fully closed. Release the switch. Lift the switch again for one more second. Push and hold the switch until the window is fully open. Release the switch. Lift and hold the switch until the window is fully closed. Open the window and try to close it automatically. Reset and repeat procedure if the window does not close automatically.
  6. GPS is shielded only by metall - so you can stow the antenna away under plastic parts of the IP without issues.
  7. Is it the same with other phones? Do you get the same crackle when you use the Bluetooth connection for calls?
  8. Yes - that's the intended design.
  9. The only brand I'm aware of is Zenec (ACR store brand): http://www.zenec.uk/products/ego/ford.html They do have some UK stores: http://www.zenec.uk/stores-dealers.html
  10. If it is happening in the same source (as the settings are independent for FM, CD ...) it may need a software update (at the dealer).
  11. If you already have tweeters, you don't want coax. They would lead to either having 2 tweeters running parallel, at reduced power, or the one in the coax being deactivated if there is a crossover. Depending on where exactly the factory system is lacking, you can either upgrade the woofers or the tweeters or both. The Ford systems are eq'd (frequency corrected) to the speakers and the cabin. I don't know what Nissan does - if it is the same with them, even nominally better speakers can give a worse result (if the frequency response is corrected where it is not necessary). You can try (and err) yourself, or find a trustworthy shop (or mate) who knows what they are doing. With the last upgrade I did myself, only changing the tweeters helped a lot for clarity and reduced distortion at higher levels. If you are looking at new woofers, the available depth is a major criterion in selection the correct replacement.
  12. FX and LSRNS are different names for the same thing. The FX name was dropped when Bosch sold off the Blaupunkt brand (and the Travelpilot trademark with it).
  13. Do not pull any fuse before finding the radio code.
  14. The Bluetooth unit might need a reset (by pulling the fuse).
  15. Strange - they should synchronize either way. We're talking brand new S-Max (produced in Valencia, SatNav is MyFordTouch, ...), correct?
