  1. Sorry Supertomy - I saw your PM, but didn't get back. Can't seem to use this from my phone... Anyway, I did not ever get an answer, but to clarify, I have a standard USB socket in my glove box, no jacks, mini usb or anything. I'd love to find out if there's an answer. I also tried hooking up my old iPod, but it doesn't work. Only seems to work with never iPods and iPhones (tried with my Brother-in-Laws iPhone, and my wife's Ipod Nano (1st gen) which work, but my old clock wheel iPod doesn't.) Leon
  2. can anyone tell me if the current behaviour is normal? My wife is complaining about it - I've sort of got used to it. Best I can describe it, if you hit a bump in the road that would deflect the steering, it's effectively amplified by the power steering. Not so much that it would be dangerous, but it's a bit unnatural. certainly my old focus didn't feel like this, but I'm sure something I have driven before has felt like this.
  3. just like the one you can see in the vid here: when I press cd/aux, i get a "line in" screen, and I can select devices, but bluetooth is not listed.
  4. Hi all, I've seen a lot of discussions, but none seem to hit the mark, so apologies if I'm asking a well known question. Please give me a link instead of a snark (actually, both is fine ;) ) though if there is an answer out there! I have a bluetoooth voice control satnav stereo unit on my recently purchased 09 s-max. It has a USB port in the glove box, and a cd multichanger under the driving seat (in case it's relavent). I connected my Android phone, and the phone functions seem to work, but I can't find anyway to play music from the handset on the car stereo. I thought maybe it was a s/w issue, so I updated the unit software using the usb pendrive, but same result. If I read the manual correctly, it seems like it should be possible, but I can't find anything as helpful as instructions! So, my conclusion is that either: my phone isn't compatible (can anyone propose a compatible handset? I work in mobile so I have access to most that I could test with)I misunderstood the feature set, and it's just not possiblethe menu is so complicated, I just haven't stumbled on the right part yet.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Leon
  5. thanks jeebowhite - sounds a bit involved for me! I'll see if I get used to it first before I start mucking about with stuff like that. Interesting in the diesel v. petrol on here. My old car was a 1.8 petrol, but I just assumed that I'd seen the setting when test driving a diesel and forgotten about it. I think I set it when I first got the car (about 4 years ago), and forgot all about it until i got the new s-max. Old car was written off, so no way to check it now.
  6. ok, thanks! That will stop me cycling through every setting again
  7. Hi all, Just joined, as I just bought an '09 S-max Titanium, 2.0L petrol. One thing I noticed, is how "active" the power steering feels. I seem to remember this when I first bought a car with PS, so I'm not super concerned. I previously had a Focus Zetec, and that had a setting for PS, between Sport, Normal and Comfort, IIRC. I was looking around the menus, but couldn't find anything similair on the S-Max. Can anyone confirm if I should, or shouldn't have this, and where to find it? Thanks, Leon
