  1. Sony Sat Nav Problems

    I bought a new Fiesta Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost 99bhp on 12/10/2013, which has the optional Sony Sat Nav. My main problem is that there is very limited information about how to use the satnav - just 2 pages in the Fiesta manual - so it is all trial and error. Main problems: 1) I can enter a postcode but there doesn't appear to be any way to enter house number, so the destination is imprecise. 2) After entering postcode there is a further field called "District" which would look a good candidate to enter house number, but it is not possible to enter any information into this field. 3) So far I have entered 7 character postcodes ok. Just tried to enter a 6 character postcode but it insisted on 7. However after 'fiddling about' I was able to enter the 6 character code but can't reproduce what I did. The supplying dealer (Think Ford) was only able to confirm my observations, and Sony was no help as they insisted on having a model number which I don't know. So has anyone else solved these problems (admittedly quite small in the context of a very good car) or can point me to a proper instruction manual. Bryn
  2. Magic Or What?

    How come I get traffic updates about congestion or blocked roads when my mobile has mobile data set to Off? Seems like magic to me. I always get the Ford Assistance message up when starting up and can maybe imagine that an emergency call might be possible in an accident, but how on Earth does it get updates about traffic conditions please?

  10. Recently purchased a 2008 Ford Focus 1.6 tdci titanium model and there is no satnav built in, just a standard black radio system. Did the titanium 2008 model come with a satnav built in? The manuals I got with my new car include directions on using the satnav? Just wondering if at any point it would have had a satnav built in but the stereo system replaced by a previous owner? Also would it be possible to get a satnav put into this car? Thanks in advance. Much better car than my old vauxhall corsa 1.2 sxi!!!

  12. Focus Titanium 2012

    Hi - Anyone know the actual type of Sony DAB SatNav that is fitted to this model; I've a couple of things I want to check out but there is no specific instructions within the car's manual? Thanks.
  13. Just some info for anyone having difficulty understanding some of the specifics of the Sony SatNav: trial and error I'm afraid. I have contacted my local dealer AND Ford directly and no-one seems to know the specific model fitted to my car (even after providing my VIN) as there is a customisation element. It doesn't look good that the manual that comes with the car does not go into specifics but if anyone has any other information on manuals for this type of SatNav I'd be grateful.
  14. Hey all, Haven't posted in a while so apologies. Got a really weird fault thats been ongoing for months and Ford are now just as stumped as I am. Car is a 2010 Focus Zetec S 1.6TDCi fitted with a towbar (if that makes any difference). I noticed on the day I picked up the car that whenever I unlock the car or start the ignition the CD player mechanism whirs for a good 5 seconds, like it's trying to eject a CD. If I put a CD in and leave it, the noise doesn't happen, nor does it eject the CD. The eject mechanism works just fine though. Every CD player I've ever fitted has done this when the power has first been connected but usually not all the time. Also, whenever I hit a bad bump, or corner sharply, the screen on the head unit flashed off for a split second, this cuts the music as well for that split second.To compound this on a particularly cold day I used the heated windscreen and after a period of time I turned it off, as I did, the head unit screen flashed off and back on. It did this a number of times and I video'd it in case the garage disbelieved me. So in it went, they checked for bad earths, continuity etc and eventually decided to swap the unit under warranty. Long story short, this made no difference to any of the faults at all, in fact on the way home from the garage I pressed the little flap/cubbie hole in front of the gear stick and as it soft opened the head unit flashed off and back on. By this point I was very observant of anything out of the ordinary and since then I have noticed that when the headlights are on, and I turn the heated screen on, as well as the revs lowering a little, which I would expect, the lights dim slightly. I'd expect this on a very old car but not something this new. What I noticed on top of that is that the lights also dim if I turn the heater on anything above number 1. I then noticed that if I turn the little interior light on and turn either the heated screen on or the heater blower, the light "pulses" or flickers slightly, which gets faster the higher number the blower is on. To cap it off if I plug my 1A cigarette lighter USB charger in to charge my iPhone, it puts about 1% of charge into it every 25minutes or so, and if I plug in my other halves Blackberry it refuses to charge and states that the charging source isn't capable. My old Focus was fine and I have tested the charger on other Fords and it works fine. Evans Halshaw have had the car for a weej and are totally stumped, to the extent that a full on Ford Technician is going to have to be sent out to the car at some point soon as they have no idea what it is. To me it sounds like a power drain, bad earth, or interference issue but they say it's nothing obvious. What I also noticed is that when i turn the indicator on, I can hear the indicator "ticking" as normal from the dashboard, but I can hear it from the rear of the car as well. I told them they may want to look at how the towbar has been wired in but they dismissed this as being the cause. Anyone got any ideas? Sorry for the long waffle! Thanks Paul.

  16. Ford Focus Satnav Volume.

    Hi, I have a 60 reg Ford Focus with satnav built in to the radio/CD. My problem is that when the satnav is operating and the radio cuts out to allow audible directions to be given, the volume of the voice is so low it cannot be heard. I have tried all the variations of the satnav controls I can find to alter the volume, but so far have not been able to increase it to a level I can hear clearly. Can anyone help and put me in the right direction?
