if its just the jack you're using.... just plug it in, turn stereo to aux, and press play on your phone.... there's nothing more to it, just like your car is a biiiig set of headphones.

I have the style which just has the aux in that square piece of trim. I wanted to know if anyone knows if its possible to swap that socket for one that is also usb like in some of the other fiestas?

Also does anyone else get popping at higher volumes through their aux unless their iphone volume is set really low?

One other thing. You can buy an ipod/iphone dock connector to 3.5mm connector on eBay and I wondered whether this allows you to control the ipod/iphone through the stereo if anyone has tried it?

Hi I've just brought a 3.5mm double ended jack to connect my iPod 4th gen through the aux although it works I was expecting to be able to change tracks through the steering wheel controls but I can't do this. I own the style+ model so is there any lead I can buy which enables this function? thanks.

If you only have a aux socket in your car. You will only be able to adjust volume and skip thro tracks using steering wheel controls. No music data will show up on your car screen. Possibly when Ipod 5 software is released you may see data, if your car has bluetooth.

Correction: Aux cable will only play sound - you cannot skip tracks. (Volume will work fine as that is controlled through the stereo) If you have Bluetooth you can play/skip music through that. I believe retrofitting USB may be possible as I'm sure I found a guide on a German forum, however can't find it now!

You're very welcome, it may be a tad out of date now with the new Sony audio system in lots of new Mk7s, but the basics should still be right.

Welcome to FOC - do us a favour and avoid quoting large pieces of text and images, it makes the reading experience of the forum a little awkward with all the scrolling. :D

Nothing has really changed with the Sony radio, same theory still applies. Just has the buttons in different places.

There is an upgrade available from the Ford Website here which can be downloaded to a USB stick and run in around 20 minutes. No guarantees that it will solve your problem but worth a try. The instructions are spot on as I just did mine and it completed in just over 15 minutes.

Hi all,

I have applied this update to my 2010/60 Fiesta Titanium and I noticed straight away although there are many improved functions with the radio - my reversing camera display in the rearview mirror showed a blank bright blue screen instead of the image from the camera for a couple of seconds. This happened twice and now I just get the blue screen and no image - it just turns off.

The reversing sensors work as I still get the beeps.

Anyone else have the camera and noticed any problems since this update?

I have the car booked in with Polar Ford on November 15th for this and a couple of other minor niggles.

Thanks
