  1. Emissions very high

    Out of interest what driving style keeps everything shipshape
  2. Things I Don't Like

    Image it then restore onto another drive??? Save you the 3 days
  3. ST2 manual steering lock

    haven't counted but it is definitely more than seconds as I hear it engage when getting stuff out the boot etc.
  4. ST2 manual steering lock

    If the ST2 is keyless start the steering lock should engage electronically ... Switch off and wait 5-10 minutes and you should hear a clunk. To release simply start the car and you'll hear it clunk to disengage No locking/unlocking car required in my car albeit different cars I would be sure the same behaviours happened
  5. Things I Don't Like

    Yup. Photoshop have decided no more free hosting No more freebies
  6. Things I Don't Like

    The heart attack Sync gives you when the radio is off yet it comes on blaring for the TA (traffic announcements) Dont do that dammit
  7. Voice control

    The Voice Control doesn't guide you all that well I'll take the risk and ask have you tried giving it the command. Ive looked at sync for car. If it doesn't recognise the command it should say so Copy from the Ford Manual example Steps User says System answer 1 "CLIMATE" "CLIMATE" 2 "TEMPERATURE"* "TEMPERATURE PLEASE" 3 "MINIMUM" "TEMPERATURE MINIMUM" "<a number between 15 and 29 °C with 0.5 increments>" or "<a number between 59 and 84 °F>" "TEMPERATURE <number>" "MAXIMUM" "TEMPERATURE MAXIMUM"
  8. Things I Do Like

    So much for the paper-less office huh
  9. Traffic sign recognition

    Learn something new everyday. So What signs would you expect to see in the top circle?? Mine mostly stays blank. Prob because i haven't passed any road sign that uses it
  10. SatNav an enduring disappointment

    Your not alone on that one The Ford Sat Nav does take you on a bizarre route. Once i was up in Yorkshire (Pickering) and wanted to get to Whitby. Ford took us over the moors (lovely scenery btw) but not terribly appropriate for motor cars (No phone signal eeek). Navigation on phone/Google on our return took us via the A Roads B roads etc There has been other instances where it tried to take us down lanes etc and i've ignored it sticking to the A Roads. I am much more wary of this Sat Nav than other systems in cars & Portables However you do get to your destination and the issues above would not stop me from spec Sat Nav again
  11. Things I Don't Like

    Echo the above RIP Jake
  12. Full LED Tail lights

    When they say LED is usually just the brake lights which are with the rest normal bulbs from mondeo manual. The following are LED Brake/Rear High Mounted Brake Rear Indicators Side Indicators
  13. Exclusively no music in my car. Normally Talk Radio stations
  14. Sync 3 Navigation - road speed limit

    No option it just defaults to another road speed if it doesn't spot a speed sign I assume this comes from the mapping data Interesting Avi says the speed of the road is shown in the bottom left of the map Haven't noticed myself. Will check this out Either way Ian your setup not picking up the signs is weird. Dealership visit prehaps Is the car infotainment set up for the UK 120 to my mind is only a valid speed on the continent
