  1. Ambient Lighting

    Hey Folks, I've got a 2017 Titanium (Which I love) and always felt the Ambient lighting was a bit 'too' ambient. It was barely on! Dragging the colour indicator up or down barely made a difference. Then last week, I noticed the light was a LOT brighter. I know the SYNC system can update OTA and certainly it checks for updates whenever I get home (my drive is in range of the router), has there been a recent SYNC 3 update and would a SYNC update affect the Ambient lighting setting?

  2. Ordered it at last.

    Nice. LIke the red stitching on the seats as well. Did you go with the Sat nav, or leave it and use the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto?

    Did you get her today?

    Nice. :-)

    Doesn't matter which way you go, Apple or Android, they will work superbly with the car. Apple though :-)

    It's in the manual, it just says not to overtax it for the first 1000 miles.

    How do you connect the Ford Pass to the car?
  8. Ordered it at last.

    Ill need to give the FordPass app a go, though Ive been unable to set it up as it keeps crashing when Im inputting my address..... Ive used the parkassist a few times and its never let me down......well, there was one awkwardly shaped space I got into, the car parked, but then decided to spend 5 minutes trying to re park as there was a funny shaped pillar on the rear....
  9. Full LED Tail lights

    Thanks for that, I did check the online manual but missed it obviously!!
  10. ...I might have missed something, but Im sure the MKv is advertised with full LED in the back, yet, my reversing lights are clearly not LED.....They're plenty bright enough, but not as advertised perhaps??
  11. USB Pen drive size?

    Logged into my Ford account (Sign up at and checked the online manual, cant see a size limitation, but it needs to be USB 2.0. I can try USB 3 later on and see if it works: USING SYNC™ WITH YOUR MEDIA PLAYER  You can access and play music from your media player through your vehicle's speaker system using the system's media menu or voice commands. You can also sort and play your music by specific categories, for example artist or albums. SYNC is capable of hosting nearly any media player including: iPod, Zune, Plays from device players, and most USB drives. SYNC also supports audio formats, for example MP3, WMA, WAV and ACC. Confirm that the USB device has been formatted correctly and has the following specifications: USB 2.0. File format must be FAT16/32. Note: NTFS file format is not supported. The format of the audio files on the USB device must be: MP3. Non DRM protected WMA. WAV. AAC.

    Ehhhh...Controversial stuff....... :-)
  13. Ordered it at last.

    Ahh, I see. I havent really used the Ford Nav, mostly just use Apple Maps as I use Apple Music so it needs to have carplay on for that. That's one thing actually, it would be nice if you could switch back and forth between the Ford Nav and Apple/Google Maps. Also, would be nice if you could get the Apple Map to display in the dash screen as the Ford Nav does (well, the Ford turn by turn is anyway)

    Apple maps popup with issues along your route.

    Cant you change the TA settings to regional at least? (I never bother with the TA stuff). I take your point with the Navigation and any incidents, you'd think it would pop up rather than have to be sought after
