  1. haven't counted but it is definitely more than seconds as I hear it engage when getting stuff out the boot etc.
  2. 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
  3. Yup. Photoshop have decided no more free hosting No more freebies
  4. 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
  5. 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"
  6. So much for the paper-less office huh
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Echo the above RIP Jake
  10. 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
  11. Exclusively no music in my car. Normally Talk Radio stations
  12. 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
  13. Yes tap the time to destination on the Nav screen and it'll change to distance remaining
  14. Same Sync 3 System in mine. There are no speed limits displayed within the Nav Map. All the speed limits are shown in the Traffic Sign display (within the speedo) From what you describe you have an issue with your setup. If mine doesn't detect another sign (within a mile or so) it defaults to the speed standard for the road type which can only come from the mapping data. Its not prefect on my travels its detected the odd 30 as 80. As for your 120mph i wonder if your Sync 3 system is in KPH and not MPH as 120KPH is about 60 in MPH Hope this helps
